Heading off to Nashville this weekend. Pretty excited to make another quick visit to the Country Music Capitol!
What are you up too this weekend?
Profile: Scott Eastwood
Keep your eyes out for up and coming actor, Scott Eastwood. He made his film debut in 2006 starring in Flags of our Fathers, directed by his father, Clint Eastwood. Determined to make it on his own, Scott Eastwood didn’t want to use his fathers success to boost him into child stardom. He found pride in making his own success. “I want to be a man’s man – not some glitzy pop star but a no-bullshit leading man” he told Town & Country earlier this year. For Eastwood, the future looks bright. He couldn’t be any more inline with his goals. With various roles in upcoming films such as; The Perfect Wave, Dawn Patrol and Fury. These roles have Eastwood acting along side big names such as Shia LaBeouf and Brad Pitt. With much in store, it will be quite interesting to see if Mr. Eastwood can prove to us that he is a “no-bullshit leading man.”
With so many good movies soon to be out, I’m going to be in the theatre every waking second. Take a minute to check out what movies are coming out this Fall! (Click on the title for full movie trailer)

NEW YORK: Looking to get out of the City for a Saturday? New York has a few hidden beaches on the East side of The Bronx, just a quick cab ride away! A nice way to get a break from the chaotic city, and get a breathe of the fresh, crisp air. The best part about it, its FREE! The only cost is your transportation, which you can make very minimal by taking the red or green line subway all the way to the last stop and grabbing a five dollar cab from there.
Looking for a longer stay? Head up to Connecticut on the Metro North from Grand Central. Only takes a few hours and their are plenty of boutique hotels awaiting your arrival.
For all New York outsiders, take a look and see where your closest beach is. Im sure it will be worth the one or two hour drive. Pack a picnic and bring a book. Fun awaits! (Don’t miss your opportunity before the weather turns!) Don’t have the time to head to the beach, go out to your neighborhood park!
Have you taken a Saturday trip to the beach?
A few of my family and friends came in last weekend and like usual, we spent way to much time deciding what to do. As all my guest have already seen the ‘tourist-y’ areas of New York, we thought it would be fun to explore Central Park given that the weather was so nice. Immediately turning to my trusty pal, Groupon, we found a cheap bike rental right place on Central Park South. Off we go! Next thing we know we traveled around the entire park. Up the east side, passing the boat pond where the small remote controlled boat races take place. Continuing past the Kennedy Reservoir and baseball diamonds packed with children. Next thing you know we are riding Central Park North, and down the Upper West Side, passing the pond with the row boats and eventually making our way to Columbus Cr where we completed our Central Park tour. After my guests getting a good feel for Central Park like they never had before they decided that on the next visit they would try the row boats!
Have you ever been rowing in Central Park?
A few weeks ago we went on a fishing charter in Upstate New York. The sun was shining with only slight gusts of wind, providing the perfect fishing weather. Here’s a few shots from our trip:
In the mood to go fishing with a group of friends and have a fun and relaxing time? I definitely recommend booking a charter boat; with a experienced captain that knows his way around the lake, as well as a crew that is on staff to handle all the dirty work for you. Great idea for a weekend getaway!
Have you taken a fishing charter before?
Jack Johnson’s new album entitled From Here to Now to You, is not surprisingly different from his past albums. With his light hearted lyrics and catchy tunes, Johnson produces music everyone can enjoy. Excellent background music at your next party!
Not only is Johnson wooing his fan base with this new album, he managed to save the hearts of many Bonnarooians this past Summer. When Mumford and Sons cancelled their headlining set last minute, Johnson came to the rescue. Having not performed with his band in over a year, Mumford fans quickly forgot the upset. You can safely say the entire festival was seen swaying back and forth to his upbeat tunes. Lucky for the crowd, he had a surprise in store. Not only did he make the audience laugh with a special ‘Bonnaroo” song, he played music off the new album that just released a few days ago. (Feel special Bonnarooians)
Here are a couple quick snapshots taken from this summers festival:
Being the first year I have attended, I highly recommend you make plans to attend in the near future. Although festivals like this can be a bit price-y, it is well worth your money. Some of the best times were had on the ride to and from, hanging out around the campsite, and people watching while running from show to show.
Whats your favorite Jack Johnson song? Are you a fan?
Have you attended Bonnaroo or any other like festivals? (Coachella, FireFly, etc.)
