Larry Silva, General Manager, Buena Vista Cafe, Fisherman's Wharf, San Francisco, California, USA.
www.thebuenavista.com

Radio Show Host and Travel Expert Stephanie Abrams broadcasts from the Buena Vista Cafe located on Fisherman's Wharf in SanFrancisco, California. She introduces Larry Silva, General Manager of the Buena Vista Cafe. The Buena Vista is known for being the American entry point of Irish coffee. Larry is a six year veteran of the cafe and that makes him relatively new - most of the staff have been there serving up Irish coffees straight from the original recipe for thirty or forty years! The cafe still serves the beloved drink with Tullamore Dew whiskey, the same kind used when the drink originated.

Larry is well versed in the history of Irish coffee and shares the details of its immigration from Ireland to the United States. In 1952, a newspaper man named Stan Delaplane introduced Irish coffee, having been served the beverage by Joe Sheridan himself, the man widely believed to be its creator. Sheridan was a bartender at the airport in Foynes, a village located in County Limerick, Ireland. During this time in history, Foynes was a popular commercial airport locale. When the drink's popularity began to gain, Sheridan came to San Francisco and the Buena Vista Cafe, formerly just a saloon, to give it a proper introduction. Because Irish coffee enjoys such strong popularity, the Buena Vista celebrates the history and keeps its Irish roots alive by displaying newspaper clippings and news articles related to the drink's immigration on the walls of the cafe. Stephanie says that the bar is a kind of mecca for Irish coffee drinkers.

Show Host Stephanie Abrams comments on the bar's decor, saying that it evinces a sense of Americana. Larry explains that just as the history of the bar's most famous drink is important for its current image, so is the original decor. Much of it is over 100 years old, including the plumbing! He jokes that low pressure soda machines are worth it to be able to provide a drinking and dining experience that is so rich in local history and feeling.

But the famous drink isn't the only special served - the Buena Vista has officially been a cafe as well for decades. They currently offer a popular breakfast service of American favorites, including six varieties of eggs benedict, burgers, sandwiches, and steaks. The cafe opens for breakfast at 8 A.M. and it's available all day - a good, hearty compliment to a glass of Irish coffee!

News and Updates from Travel Expert Stephanie Abrams.

Radio Show Host and Travel Expert Stephanie Abrams shares some information she's learned about the organization of female pilots, The Ninety-Nines. She met some of the group's current members during a trip to Ireland, where they were visiting the location of one of Amelia Earhart's landings when she flew to Paris. Stephanie reports that the organization was born from "the great new feminism focused on individualism" that emerged following the women's suffrage movement. Women during this time had a great amount of energy and drive to put towards change and equality in previously male dominated fields and activities. The new organization of cross country air races gave women the opportunity to fly the same courses across the United States that previously only men had been allowed to navigate. In 1929 this led to the formation of the first all women's air derby.

The aviator and journalist Fay Gillis Wells founded The Ninety-Nines in November 1929 in a hangar at Curtiss Field in Valley Stream, Long Island, inviting female pilots to be a part of an organization supporting their foray into the male-dominated field. Amelia Earhart recommended that the group be named the Ninety-Nines in honor of the ninety nine women who responded to Gillis Wells' initial mailing recruiting those potentially interested in founding such an organization.

Drawing on this spirit of adventure and exploration of new territory, Stephanie encourages listeners to get out and travel to new locations, not allowing themselves to become stuck in a home base or to continually frequent the same tried and tested travel spot. She also encourages listeners to engage in research before choosing things like vacation accommodation so as to create the best possible travel experience and to enjoy it to its full extent. She relates her own experience of using travel website Trip Advisor, and says that although it's important to read reviews of hotels, it's best to take the advice from a trusted friend or someone whose preferences align with yours, as everyone has different expectations for their destinations and things like hotels.

Travel Expert Stephanie Abrams also encourages listeners to be vocal about any problems or dissatisfaction directly to the staff of a hotel, because they are there to provide for guests' needs. She feels that it is most important to check two areas immediately upon checking into a hotel: the bathroom and the bed. If anything about these does not measure up to your personal requirements or those of your party, such as requiring more soap, towels, blankets or pillows, speak up about it. The front desk and housekeeping can easily work with guests to resolve issues such as these and then there wouldn't be a need for travelers to feel unhappy about their vacation experience and only speak up about it later when writing reviews about the places they've stayed.

Stephanie also reveals that it is most likely to a traveler's economic advantage to take a food plan if it is offered by a hotel on an island destination. These are areas where the majority of food and sometimes even water must be imported, which causes the prices of these goods to be considerably high. Ensuring that a food plan is purchased through a hotel can guarantee travelers set meals at reasonable prices so that the cost of dining doesn't become exorbitant. Stephanie advises that if listeners are more interested in experiencing outside food options anyway, it it still worth considering a meal plan that may only cover one meal a day such as breakfast to ensure some savings.

Chef Lee Masten, Executive Chef, Berkshire Crowne Plaza Hotel, Pittsfield, Massachusetts, USA.
www.berkshirecrowne.com

Radio Show Host and Travel Expert Stephanie Abrams welcomes friend Lee Masten, Executive Chef at the Berkshire Crowne Plaza Hotel in Pittsfield, Massachusetts. With her studio's close proximity to the Berkshire Crowne Plaza, Stephanie often enjoys dining in the restaurant and is a big fan of Lee's mussels. She says she's tried mussels all over the world and has yet to taste any that compare to his recipe served there. Recently while in San Francisco, she ordered the dish at the restaurant Chapeau. Although she reports that the food there was generally outstanding, the mussels still weren't as good as the ones served at the Berkshire Crowne Plaza.

Lee reveals the key to making good mussels is that the shell must be sauteed and that many restaurants skip this step or else don't understand its importance. A sauteed shell brings out the "earthy, pungent, peppery flavor of a mussel", he explains. If dining at the restaurant at the Berkshire Crowne Plaza Hotel in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, you can rest assured that the mussels come highly recommended by Stephanie and are, according to her, incomparable!

Dan Bergmann, General Manager, Hotel Phillips, Kansas City, Missouri, USA.
www.hotelphillips.com

Radio Show Host and Travel Expert Stephanie Abrams introduces her first guest this hour by appealing to appetite. She describes varieties of fondue, from traditional cheese to chocolate, before explaining that her guest is from a hotel that will be serving up fondue this fall. She then introduces Dan Bergmann, General Manager of Hotel Phillips in Kansas City, Missouri.

Dan explains that the hotel will be instituting a fondue buffet. It will include several artisanal cheeses, fresh fruit, assorted breads and crackers, and a selection of five wines. The buffet will be $20 and all you can eat plus all you can drink wines. Customers can serve themselves. He promises to send Stephanie a photo of himself enjoying the buffet, and she responds "The devil sent you!" The fondue buffet will continue throughout the winter and most likely until March, Dan shares.

Dan also shares that the hotel is nearing the end of renovations, including that of the hotel's 217 guest rooms. It is an eighty one year old historical landmark that needs lots of "love and care", as he explains. As an independent hotel, they are able to use unique coloring and patterns in their furniture and decor. Dan says that their high ceilings and ornate decorations help set them apart from typical chain hotels. Stephanie agrees that everything she's seen of the hotel is "storybook magic". Hotel Phillips is part of a bigger group of independent hotels, the Marcus Hotels.

In case Kansas City isn't on your destination list, Dan is able to provide some reasons as to why it should be! Kansas City has a colorful underworld history, and this is explored in a package offered by the Hotel Phillips called the Pedicab Mafia Tour. The two hour tour goes downtown to the Union Station and River Market areas, and provides information about some of the historical events that have happened there over the years.

On the first Friday of each month, the Crossroads Art District, located a few blocks from the hotel, keeps its doors open late and hosts street activities and bands, while restaurants, and galleries stay open late. It's called First Fridays, and the hotel offers a package to coincide with the event, which includes a $25 food and beverage credit and complimentary valet parking.

They also have an art museum, the Nelson-Atkins. Admission is free and the museum includes exhibits representing art from the entire world. Currently from October 15 through January 8 there is an exhibit called "George Ault and 1940s America". Ault was an American painter loosely grouped with the Precisionist movement. His work is of a realist nature and his paintings reflect Americana in the 1940s. Dan tells that most of Ault's work was done during World War II. He describes the paintings as capturing the mood of life on the home front, far from the battlefields but "profoundly at risk".

Kansas City is home to the world's only museum dedicated to World War I, the National World War I Museum at Liberty Memorial. Their current special exhibit is called "Man & Machine: the German soldier in World War I". In addition to historic importance, this museum has architectural appeal as well, including a tall tower offering great views of the Kansas City area. The entryway design is a glass bridge through a field of nine thousand red poppies. Each poppy represents a thousand combatant fatalities in the war. Show Host Stephanie Abrams notes that this is a powerful way of making such huge numbers a palpable reality.

Tony Simotes, Artistic Director and President, Shakespeare & Company, Lenox, Massachusetts, USA.
www.shakespeare.org

Radio Show Host and Travel Expert Stephanie Abrams introduces her next guest Tony Simotes, the Artistic Director and President of Shakespeare & Company, a theater company located in the town of Lenox in Berkshire County, Massachusetts. Tony says that they've proudly been in the historic village of Lenox since 1978. Stephanie agrees that Lenox is wonderful as both a cultural center and naturally beautiful location with much to offer visitors with interests in either area.

Tony shares that a joyful part of his job is being able to watch a play grow and develop. He survived cancer last year and didn't have much of a chance to see his finished work being performed in the theater. Now he is "ecstatic" to be able to be in the theater and see the plays staged. Stephanie takes the opportunity to share her belief that it's important to "grasp the moment" and enjoy aspects of life such as travel and theater. "Don't wait for perfect because perfect doesn't exist," she advises. Tony tells that he was on his way to London with his wife when he received the news of cancer, cancelling his trip and changing his life. "You have no guarantee on tomorrow but you have right now!" Stephanie responds. She poignantly points out that looking back on one's life, one should be able to see a "very rich tapestry, instead of just the threads waiting for the tapestry to be woven".

Travel Expert Stephanie Abrams has seen several Shakespeare & Company productions including the summer's "Memory of Water" and the recent "War of the Worlds". She gives them excellent reviews, commenting on the creative set design and outstanding actors. Having attended theater productions in such globally important destinations as New York City and Shakespeare's own Globe Theater, she says that she walks out of productions by Shakespeare & Company "just as enthralled".

Tony explains that for the current "War of the Worlds" production, they've recreated a radio studio from the 1930s, with art deco inspired sets, old microphones, and signs indicating "applause" and "on air". Everything has been done to give "the flavor of the time". Even ushers wear costumes, as he explains that "everybody's in the act". It gives an experience of what it might have been like to watch your favorite show from an audience in the 1930s. A broadcast of "War of the Worlds" is the premise of the show, with a fictional show called "The Jack Holloway Show" created around it, which provides live entertainment such as tap dancing and singing.

Stephanie says that you know when you arrive on the grounds of Shakespeare & Company that something special is about to happen. Tony explains that their mission is to "be here for the Berkshires all year long", thus they keep a full line up throughout winter. This year, ten high schools are participating in their fall festival culminating in four days of theater around Thanksgiving. Tickets only cost a few dollars and he says that it is a great experience full of amazing energy from the students.

Upcoming productions include Tony's directing of "SantaLand Diaries", a play by David Sedaris, as their holiday offering. He guarantees it is a very different take on the play, different than it's been seen anywhere else! He describes it as "a little irreverent", providing an alternative option for those looking for something a little out of the ordinary for their holiday entertainment. Shakespeare & Company's conservatory program, a training program similar to an MFA, is performing "Cymbeline", a play that he says "you don't get a chance to see very often". In the new year, Moliere's  "The Learned Ladies" will be produced. He calls it a fun show great for Valentine's Day, and will include a lavish brunch. He guarantees that men will love the play too, and hints that it's "a little bit naughty as well!"

Bob Lawler, General Manager, Entertainment Cruises - Boston, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.
www.entertainmentcruises.com

Radio Show Host and Travel Expert Stephanie Abrams welcomes Bob Lawler, the General Manager of Entertainment Cruises in Boston, Massachusetts. The cruises are "a wonderful way to add a dramatic exclamation point to your visit to that fabulous city," she enthuses. Stephanie hoped that Bob could provide some clarification about the seasonal schedules of some of the operating cruises.

Bob explains that although some tour boats and ferry boats are seasonal, shutting down at Labor Day or Columbus Day weekend, Entertainment Cruises' yachts are fully enclosed, climate controlled, and operate year round.  The vessels include the Odyssey, a 175 foot fine dining yacht for parties of two to eight hundred. They offer a special events menu for anniversaries, weddings, birthdays, bar mitzvahs, and other occasions. Live bands are featured for entertainment and dancing is encouraged! The Odyssey's sister ship is the Spirit of Boston, and offers a more casual atmosphere. They feature buffet dining and a DJ. It's for parties of two to six hundred and has a fun, festive atmosphere.

Stephanie suggests that business travelers taking clients to lunch should consider the Odyssey as an option. Bob agrees, and says that the tours are two hours long and that they can provide private rooms for presentations. Doing business on a cruise is an interesting experience and change of scenery from other Boston venues commonly used for business transactions. Bob adds that the fall foliage is beautiful during the season and sailing in Boston Harbor provides beautiful views of the Boston skyline as well as the region's foliage.

Show Host Stephanie Abrams wonders if guests with special diet restrictions are provided for on the cruises. Chefs on both vessels are fully trained and capable of catering to special needs. Customers have the option of making a note of their need or preference when they first make a reservation, or they can choose from the variety of offerings available when they come on board. There is a vegetarian menu, and chefs are able to produce food to suit customer tastes since all food is prepared fresh on board. The only option not prepared on board is kosher meals, but if a customer requires this, they can make a note during reservation and the meal will be brought on board from a local kosher restaurant.

With winter weather approaching, Bob assures that the enjoyment of the outdoors won't end. The cruises' routes are very protected so customers can always count on a smooth ride. Vessels are surrounded by wrap around windows so even during chilly times, passengers can still go outside in a coat and enjoy the scenery of the harbor. With the upcoming holidays in mind, there's a Halloween family lunch planned for October 30th on the Spirit. On the day after Thanksgiving, a special dinner cruise is taking place on the Spirit, because as Bob points out, who wants to cook on the day after Thanksgiving?

There's a holiday cruise called Sangria with Santa operating between December 1 and 15. These special voyages are on weekday mid-afternoons, and offer lighter fare from a cocktail style menu. There is also an upcoming Santa family lunch cruise where kids can have pictures taken with Santa. For New Year's Eve, the Boston fireworks can be seen and the holiday celebrated from either vessel. Boston does two sets of fireworks that night, once in early evening and once at midnight. Both can be seen from the cruises in Boston Harbor. Stephanie calls it a "spectacular way to bring in the New Year".

For those who would like to go out but might not be particularly enthusiastic about the New Year's celebrations or don't want to deal with the craziness of New Year's Eve, there is an Eve of the Eve cruise on Friday night. It's a regular dinner cruise taking place the night before New Year's Eve. There's also a brunch cruise on New Year's Day, for some relaxing and recuperation after the night of celebration. Stephanie personally attests to the quality of service and experience on the Odyssey and reports that since the idea of ringing in the New Year from beautiful Boston Harbor aboard one of these vessels sounds like so much fun, she may even be in attendance.

David Mackey, Interim CEO, Massachusetts Port Authority, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.
www.massport.com

Radio Show Host and Travel Expert Stephanie Abrams points out that as long as we're in the water, we might as well stay there to continue with guest David Mackey, Interim CEO of the Massachusetts Port Authority, in Boston, Massachusetts. The company operates the Boston sea port as well as Logan Airport. Stephanie understands there's spectacular growth in ships visiting Boston Harbor. David confirms, and says last week there were four luxury liners in the Harbor - the Seabourn Sojourn, the Carnival Glory, the Crown Princess and the Crystal Symphony, totaling more than seven thousand passengers. Three ships docked at the new Black Falcon Cruise Terminal and one moored in the channel. Each ship was there for a port of call, and David explains that slightly more than half the business of the port is of this nature. Ships come for a day and customers can disembark and experience Boston before rejoining the ship and sailing on to the cruise destination.

The most popular time of year to cruise into Boston is September and October, because of the remarkable New England fall foliage. Stephanie points out that there's so much that is uniquely Boston, including the Boston Symphony Orchestra and its historic Symphony Hall and many cultural amenities easily accessible by mass transit in the metropolitan area - the Freedom Trail, Boston Museum of Fine Arts, and the Boston Children's Museum to name only a few. Stephanie points out that activities like this can be enjoyed pre- and post-cruising when trips begin or end in Boston.

Also working with Logan Airport, David points out that Logan has been refurbished in the past several years and travelers who haven't passed through recently may be surprised at the new appearance of the facilities. They also have improved roadway access with the opening of the Ted Williams Tunnel. There is a water taxi service operating from Logan into the center of Boston, which offers a more relaxing, fun, and visually enjoyable way to commute into the city. David shares the little known fact, in his opinion, that the best views of the city are from East Boston and the airport.

He concludes by expressing pride in the newly renovated cruise terminal and improved airport facilities, and the exciting plans next year for expanding cruise services. There has been tremendous growth on the international side as well as the low cost carrier side at the airport, both benefiting travelers. David credits the great appeal and attraction of the city of Boston itself for the growth in both industries.

Radio Show Host and Travel Expert Stephanie Abrams welcomes friend and former guest Jim Grace, President and CEO of Insuremytrip.com and Insuremygroup.com, clearing houses of travel insurance options. Stephanie wants to talk about Jim's interest in customer polling to find out what travelers think about the service.

Jim says they started their ratings and reviews on the site about three months ago and have over 4,100 reviews of the insurance options available. He assures that negative reviews are taken with the positive to provide a rounded opinion of plans, service, and coverage."We want to hear all of it!" he promises. Questions asked of customers include whether they would recommend an insurance plan to a friend, if the coverage and cost were as expected, and how the claims performance was if a claim was made. He feels that it makes for an interesting buying experience and improves the dynamic, because now customers can get opinions from their peers and not only the direction from salespeople. "There's nothing like a happy camper to push you right over the edge," Stephanie agrees. She adds that travel insurance is not a luxury item, and Jim says that having online advice from people who have used the coverage and made claims is invaluable in tailoring this necessity to your own needs.

Even other kinds of insurance companies are not usually willing to post this kind of feedback information, Jim reports. Stephanie agrees that it takes enormous confidence. Jim says that they do have reviews that aren't glowing, but they respond if clarification is needed and insurance companies can respond as well. Critical feedback is used to improve and examine areas and situations where further attention and improvements are warranted. Everyone who posts is a verified customer. Travel Expert Stephanie Abrams agrees with his philosophy of learning from mistakes to improve overall service, and summarizes:"We make decisions on how we grow to meet that expectation...that's what it's about." Jim agrees and adds that offering this new ratings service "empowers people to make good decisions."

Fun Facts:

Cruise ships originating in Boston is a growing business. It's quite new: cruise ships have only been calling in Boston for 25 years. The port now sees more than 100 ships and 300,00 passengers in a year.

Part of the growth of Massport's Cruiseport Boston includes a makeover of the Black Falcon Cruise Terminal, originally a World War I warehouse and now reconfigured into an airy, welcoming space for cruise passengers.


Travel Tips:

Travel Expert Stephanie Abrams prefers Logan Airport of all available choices in her region, and recommends using Logan if possible as a connector instead of a hub like New York, citing it as being less hassle and stress for the traveler.
