A Royal 👑 Treat

SUNDAY July 30, 2023

“In the past we were born royal. Nowadays royalty comes from what you do.”

Gianni Versace

Many of us enjoy visiting places that make us feel like royalty. The ambiance, service, and class created in these destinations helps us relax and forget the worries of our daily lives.

This week we visit the Redlands Hotel in downtown Palestine — an early 20th century building that’s been elegantly restored with touches of history. The fact that it’s located on Queen Street helps guests feel they really are receiving royal treatment.

At other times it’s possible to make our ourselves feel special at home — such as with Katie-Rose Watson’s recipe for creating a tropical escape with Mai Tai Cocktails and The Best Coconut Shrimp. Use her recipes to treat yourself and friends and you won’t need to own a tropical island. — Lisa Tang

FOOD + DRINK

Create an Instant Tropical Vacation at Home

The search for “hot fun in the summer time” has most everyone looking for ways to relax and get away from heavy responsibilities for a while. When travel is not in the budget or time schedule, a little creativity goes a long way for an instant tropical vacation at home.

Grab a comfortable sarong or the closest thing you’ve got to beach wear, get the little drink umbrellas out of the junk drawer, and put on a little calypso music to set the tone. Poolside — even a tiny wading pool — is optional. The main focus of this paradise is food. READ MORE.
