This year is the first time in my entire professional career that I had Memorial Day off. Until now – with the exception of 2020 and 2021 – I had always been flying off to a new city to kick off ACHA’s annual meeting. To celebrate, Sean and I wanted to get away for the […]

It’s now been a full year since I started this series on the blog. You would think I would run out of restaurants, but it seems every time I turn around a whole crop of new places pops up. I suppose I should be happy Tbilisi keeps me on my toes, but it’s a bit […]

Well, it’s that time again. This month I’m bringing you a special edition of Restaurant Roundup, focused on my favorite wine bars and shops. This has been a long time coming, and is inspired by this very consistent conversation: Me/Sean/Both of Us: Oh! We found this wine at WineMe. Them: What’s WineMe…? Me/Sean/Both of Us: […]

Here’s my top five (give or take) for this month. Top Five Restaurants: Azarpheshia: This is one of the famous […]

Here we go again! My favorite restaurants I’ve tried the past few months. Enjoy! Top Five Restaurants: SushiRoom: It’s no secret at this point that I’m obsessed with Asian food in general, sushi in particular. While I still would argue that the best sushi you can find in Tbilisi is at Umami at the Radisson, […]

It’s time for another Restaurant Roundup! We love to eat, and Tbilisi definitely delivers in the food department. I will say, we haven’t eaten at a ton of Georgian specific restaurants since we’ve been here, but that’s mostly because we are served traditional Georgian food at official events. I don’t want to only eat Georgian […]

This past weekend was “Kristen’s Birthday Celebration, Take Three.” Take one didn’t happen because on my actual birthday Sean was flying home from Berlin and arrived at 5:00 a.m. so he was in no condition to celebrate with me. Take two was also a bust because for the last few weeks we’ve both been battling […]

It shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone: our favorite thing to do is eat. We both enjoy cooking, I preserve from time to time (I’ve currently got two different batches of tomato sauce going as I write this), and anytime we plan a trip the first thing we do is research where we are going […]

Cheesy bread and tasty wine. I think we’ll do just fine in Tbilisi.
