Some should have gone, but others, I felt, put real effort into the craft. I can’t believe the influx of steakhouses to our fair city. But, I am here to tell you I love a good steak, and one of the best for my dollar is Del Frisco’s Grille on South Lake Avenue. Pasadena might rival only Chicago as the steak capital of the world. Del Frisco’s is related to the Double Eagle Grille in Las Vegas where they have built their reputation on a menu that features all prime beef.What they have going here is a great location, an incredible wine list, and a top-notch filet mignon. My assignment was to enjoy the pairing of fine wines with Del Frisco’s popular menu, aided by Del Frisco’s own sommelier – a fun way to go, if the restaurant has a sommelier.My dinner started with the ahi tuna tartare with avocado and a spicy citrus mayo. Ahi tuna tacos have become a popular appetizer in restaurants and I had these paired with a Paco & Lalo white wine, one of the most popular wines from the region of Rias Baixas in Spain. I’ve never been to Spain, but when I go I’ll visit this wine region for sure.Next in the adventure was the kale quinoa salad, which was spectacular and went very well with my taste of Flora Springs Chardonnay.Finally came the reason for our review: the steak – a generous eight-ounce filet mignon with a side of truffled mac and cheese. If you’ve heard my radio show, you know I often talk about steaks and my contention that I can make I great steak at home. This one is as good as it gets, and sommelier Sharha paired it with a wine that I reviewed recently — the Decoy Cabernet Sauvignon. But wait! There’s more! The night was completed with their coconut cream pie. This was so good we went back the next night and got it to go.One more note: their crab cake is one of the best I’ve had, and that’s saying a lot. No matter the price, when I see the crab cake on the menu, it’s ordered.Del Frisco’s Grille 55 S.

Go-Ahead London has further improved its vehicle maintenance ability with the introduction of a Josam JH1000 portable induction heater to its New Cross accident and repair centre.Supplied by Automotive Equipment Solutions (AES), which is the UK distributor of Josam commercial vehicle workshop products, the heat inductor is used for lighter straightening and the loosening of heavy vehicle parts, but without using a naked flame. That removes the possibility of safety issues or damage to other connected parts.The JH1000 is designed for straightening lighter components and loosening heavier machine parts including bolts, nuts, bushes and bearings. Its control panel has what are described as “intuitive buttons and indicators” for the easy setting of five power output levels. It has a duty cycle of 40 minutes.Go-Ahead London Repair Centre Manager David Frost says the equipment has rapidly become an essential workshop tool, improving safety while cutting costs and time expenditure.“It’s much safer than using a naked flame to heat anything on the vehicle. For example, we recently straightened a front bearer by applying heat next to the electric wiring and air pipes without affecting them in any way.“The bearer was pulled straight and the job was completed in minutes rather than hours. The latter would have been the case had we needed to remove the bearer or move the wiring and pipework.”David adds that the Josam JH1000 has “quickly paid for itself,” and has proved to be easy to use and maintain. Training has been provided by AES, which is based in Pontefract, West Yorkshire. read more
The President of the Independent Association of Caterers, Marin Medak, explained that the City of Zagreb has enabled certain modifications on public areas, ie on the terraces of restaurants in the form of sales of mulled wine, coffee, sausages and the like. According to director Bienenfeld will be held more than 70 concerts outdoors, but also indoors where there will be a limited number of spectators. The most significant of these concerts will be streamed on social media. Photo: Zagreb.hr Unless there are even stricter measures and restrictions on entry from other countries, he expects this tourist year to end at 30% last year. Details and specific dates of events, festivals and projects will be known in a few days, and the program will be available to follow live and on social networks At a press conference Director of the Zagreb Tourist Board, Martina Bienenfeld among other things, she presented three new projects. Advent in Zagreb, despite epidemiological restrictions, will be a place this year as well holding numerous concerts. No ice rink on Tomislav Square Three new projects According to the president of the Association of Craftsmen of the City of Zagreb, Antun Trojnar, at the traditional location – on Trg pod vurom, there will be about 15 holiday houses where craftsmen – souvenir producers will present their products. Manifestation under the slogan “Advent in Zagreb, feel the light” started on November 28, and the program will include numerous cultural events and ten different festivals. Bienenfeld announced that this year, after consultations with the city and national civil protection headquarters, there will be no recognizable Ice Park on Tomislavac. However, she emphasized that at a time when as many as 50 Advent events in Europe have been canceled, with adaptation to the epidemiological situation and responsible behavior, Zagreb will continue to be recognized as an Advent destination. The first one is The light of Zagreb, in which the windows in the Upper Town will be decorated and lit. The Tourist Board invites all the citizens of Zagreb to decorate their windows in their own way and to join the project in a symbolic way. No skating rink, but with numerous concerts and events, Advent in Zagreb will still be held this year. Source and photos: Zagreb.hr The second project is a walk through Zagreb’s churches and their mangers, in compliance with epidemiological measures. The third project that is being developed and will be launched on November 28 is the augmented reality, which will be located in over 20 Zagreb locations. read more

Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on November 2, 2013 at 8:37 pm Contact Trevor: [email protected] | @TrevorHass Jarrod West knew he needed to play better.He was expected to emerge as the team’s No. 1 wide receiver following the departure of Alec Lemon and Marcus Sales. They were big shoes to fill, and West hadn’t even come close to being a top threat.Excluding the Wagner game, he was averaging 1.43 receptions and 13.9 yards per game, and had been held out of the end zone. He saw fewer snaps against Clemson and North Carolina State.But on Saturday, in Syracuse’s (4-4, 2-2 Atlantic Coast) 13-0 shutout of Wake Forest (4-5, 2-4), West caught two passes for 58 yards and threw a touchdown pass to Brisly Estime on a trick play. He showed glimpses of what many of the 38,550 fans expected to see at the start of the season.“It’s good to see Jarrod get going,” Syracuse guard Rob Trudo said. “It’s good to see him come around.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textEarly in the second quarter, Terrel Hunt tried to find West near midfield on the right sideline. He made the catch and the crowd erupted for the first time all afternoon.But his feet were out of bounds, so the pass was ruled incomplete. It was a tease, the kind of gaffe West has made all season.On Syracuse’s next drive, though, West delivered on a similar play. Sprinting down the right sideline, he looked up and the ball fell into his fingertips.Wake Forest cornerback Merrill Noel waved his arms frantically and repeatedly to signal that the pass was incomplete. The 43-yard reception stood, though.West and Hunt talked on Friday and texted later in the day. West told Hunt he would start playing better. Hunt knew he’d have a bounce-back game.“Going into this, I knew I had to put the ball up,” Hunt said, “and he was going to go get it wherever I put it.”West accounted for Syracuse’s second touchdown in the least expected way. He threw a pass to Estime on a reverse and extended the Orange’s lead. It was a play he had practiced all week, but one he’d never completed.But on this play, West said, “he was wide open.” Comments read more
