Local Loves to try...

1. If you love clothing consignment, Panache in Brighton is one of the best places to go to find luxury treasures. So it's a no brainer that we now have Panache HOME-luxury home consignment. I adored all the unique home furnishings and accessories! 

2. As soon as I saw the sign go up, I couldn't wait for Branca to open. Never mind that I haven't made it there yet! Such is life when you have kids and work. This neighborhood Italian eatery is calling Bushnell's Basin home with wood fired pizza, authentic Italian dishes and a drink menu to die for. Ciao!

3. Another place on my radar but have yet to get to is Apogee Wine Bar on Park Ave. Stop in to try some wines that you can't find anywhere else in town while in a trendy atmosphere. And if you were wondering… 
ap·o·gee apəjē/- the highest point in the development of something; the climax or culmination.

4. I'm a late bloomer as far as macaroons go. I bought my first 2 from Scratch Bakeshop. I had all intentions of bringing them home from an event to share with my family but once I took a bite, I could not stop myself. It reminded me of the time I ate a loaf of cinnamon bread for dinner when living in Albuquerque. By the time I got home I had scarfed both macaroons while driving. slob. Anyway-then there are the cakes. The cakes Kate and Molly make are unbelievable. Follow them on FB and IG to see for yourself! 

5. I've mentioned before that a new optical shop boutique will be opening at Collegetown by the University of Rochester, but there are SO many more amazing specialty shops, restaurants, boutiques that will be home to this wonderful area as well. Take a peek at the website to see what's coming

6. It's never too early to start thinking about the holidays and families in need. One of the aspects of Rochester that I love is that there is an extremely strong sense of community. Consider becoming a part of Making Spirits Bright-a new local non-profit that helps deserving families who are struggling enjoy the holiday season. 

I hope everyone has a safe and happy Labor Day Weekend! XO

    I had a girls night at Branca last weekend. The service was a little uneven, but the food was great!
