Manuka Restaurant – Moncton, NB

Eat, Drink, & Do
Manuka Restaurant Moncton
It doesn't look like much from outside. A little yellow house with a bright red door on the corner where Alma and Botsford streets meet, just a short distance from Moncton's core. Had we not been looking for it, we might have missed it completely. Manuka, the restaurant inside that little yellow house, only opened in late… Read More

Long Trail Brewery – Plymouth, VT

Eat, Drink, & Do
Longtrail Brewery Vermont
We almost didn't go to Long Trail Brewery. With so many to visit in a limited time, we were of the mind that we'd try to stick to the ones you have less opportunity to try, and, being Vermont's biggest brewery, it's a bit easier to otherwise find Long Trail. However, there it was along our… Read More

Saint John Ale House – Saint John, NB

Saint John Ale House New Brunswick
"That's really deeply satisfying." I dig in for a second bite, curling the house made duck egg pasta around the fork, making sure to get some of the house cured pancetta and creamy duck yolk in the mix. We're at the Saint John Ale House, a place we always like to visit when in Saint John.… Read More

Harpoon Brewery Windsor Vermont
Harpoon Brewery didn't fit in our original itinerary of places to visit in Vermont, but when our GPS got us lost, we found ourselves in Windsor, VT. Harpoon is one of the largest breweries in Vermont, second only to Long Trail. Even if you didn't know that going in, the space suggests it. The large white… Read More

Jasper Murdock Beer Norwich Inn
Norwich Inn was the first stop on our Vermont tour. This historic inn is located just past the border of Vermont and New Hampshire, and is home to Jasper Murdock Ales. It's a charming property right on the main street.

The Chocolate Museum St Stephen New Brunswick
Like many Maritime kids, I grew up knowing (and loving) the Ganong name. Ganong Bros. has been making chocolate in New Brunswick for more than 100 years. They're known around the world for their Pal-o-mine bars and boxes of assorted chocolates. In Saint Stephen, New Brunswick, the place where it all started, The Chocolate Museum… Read More

Vermont Travel Ideas
Last year, Drew drove from Montreal to Portland to meet me for some travel adventures. His route took him through a small stretch of Vermont called the North East Kingdom, a mountainous stretch of paradise that's made many lists of things you must see and places you must visit before you die. Sunny days in… Read More
