Wild Tastes In The South Coast

Now I’m sure from all the hype that all of you have heard about the grand opening of Buffalo Wild Wings. Being a current employee at the Dartmouth Mall, I couldn’t escape the rumors about this new restaurant; it seemed like everyone was rushing to go. So finally I decided to check out Buffalo Wild Wings for myself and let me just say one word: Amazing!

I remember when they started construction months ago and hearing rumors spread around the mall of what the new architecture would turn out to be. And let me just say, I and everyone else who has eaten at Buffalo Wild Wings aren’t disappointed. Not only does Buffalo Wild Wings have an amazing atmosphere and staff with cheery personalities, but most people who I have interviewed on this topic have summed up Buffalo Wild Wings as a “fun night out.” Of course, it’s not just your everyday average kind of fun, but this particular kind of fun that lights up eyes and puts smiles on people’s faces whenever they mention their time at Buffalo Wild Wings.

Now what makes Buffalo Wild Wings so special and what exactly are other people missing out on if they haven’t already eaten there? Buffalo Wild Wings is all about the customer’s experience and having fun. Each customer at Buffalo Wild Wings has, what they call, an experience coach. An experience coach is someone who will change the music or the T.V channel if you find yourself becoming bored with what’s on T.V. Crazy huh?

They also have games you can play, like trivia or poker and a challenge called the “Blazin’ Challenge” but be warned- The blazin’ challenge is a suicide mission hosted by your experience coach, where you have 6 minutes to eat 12 chicken wings drenched with the hottest sauce they have. That’s what you call taking fun to the extreme level, ladies and gentlemen!

Buffalo Wild Wings is a perfect spot for all the sports fans out there! Whether its football, baseball, basketball, hockey or any other kind of sport you like, they are willing to make sure it’s on a t.v just for you. They are also famous for their sports bar. Completely separate from the dining area, it is a great place to hang out with your buddies and have a few beers while cheering on your favorite team! Also, don’t forget about the promo days, Wing Tuesday and Boneless Thursday, when all of their award winning wings and boneless wings are specially priced all day.

So what are you waiting for? Head on over to Buffalo Wild Wings, either with the kids or for a date night and try their delicious food. Don’t be shy to add one of their 16 signature sauces to any wings you decide to try out!

Be sure to check in with the New Bedford Travel Guide about your experience at Buffalo Wild Wings and other great restaurant adventures!

Fighting Stress on the Coast

For students, fall can be a stressful season in New England. With schoolwork piling up and memories of warm summer days making it harder to cope with the dropping temperatures, anxieties can make a person burst! Thankfully, the South Coast has the remedy you need to knock out your worries.

Exercise gives the body a great way to release tension. Running is my personal favorite, and many of the best spots to run just so happen to be on the waterfront! Of course running in the sand at Horseneck Beach, Gooseberry Island, or Round Hill Beach presents a great challenge for experienced runners, but occasional runners like myself might want to stick to a solid surface.

One of my favorite locations is the path that goes around Fort Taber in New Bedford. Starting from the Fort Taber parking lot, follow the outside path that leads to Rodney French Blvd, re-enter the park on the other side, and you will eventually make a total lap of about 1.5 miles.

Some of my other favorite running places include Buttonwood Park at about 2 miles a lap if you go around the whole park or a little less than a mile if you just want to run around the zoo area, and Ring Road at UMass Dartmouth for another 1.5 mile run.

Exercise isn’t the only way to relieve stress. For the non-athletic type, there are plenty of great locations to grab a bite to eat or just hang out with friends. Take a break from your work-zone to visit cafes like Panera Bread and Mirasol’s Cafe for some delicious food and free internet. Don’t forget to try Mirasol’s famous Chippi while you’re there!

If its later in the day, grab a glass of wine by yourself or with a few friends. Wine, specifically red wine, has great health benefits in moderation, and you will feel the benefits of relaxation along with your strong heart and lowered cholesterol. Attending a wine tasting is one great option, but you can get a quicker fix at the classy Cork Wine & Tapas Bar in downtown New Bedford and try one of the local dishes and drinks.

No matter what you choose for relaxation, just remember to slow down and enjoy the sights and experiences the South Coast has to offer. Don’t forget to take a break!

It’s Apple Picking Season on the South Coast!

The air is crisp and the kids are back in school. It is fall on the South Coast and that means apple season is upon us. Now is the time to enjoy all things apple: apple cider, apple festivals, candy apples, and of course apple picking!

Picking a perfectly ripened apple right from the tree reminds us of the abundance nature provides. It is a wonder that the delicate balance of sunlight, nutrients, water, and human care can yield a fruit as amazing as the apple.

The apple is such a familiar fruit that you may think you know all there is to know about it. Perhaps you are a more apple educated individual than I, but I was surprised to learn that:

  • The crab apple is the only apple native to North America.
  • The apple is a member of the rose family.
  • An apple tree takes four to five years to produce its first fruits.
  • Apples float because they are 25% air.
  • It takes the energy of 50 leaves to produce one apple.

Apple picking season does not last forever, so don’t wait too long to get out there and see the mighty apple in its natural habitat. Fresh local apples are available at orchards and farms across the South Coast. Try Peters Family Orchard and Cider Mill, Dartmouth Orchards, Keith’s Farm, or Pocasett Orchards if you want to pick your own.

Many of the apple orchards in the area also sell additional produce at their farm stands as well as baked goods, jams, jellies, and other homemade goodies. Some offer hayrides, tractor rides, and corn mazes.

If you are a fan of apple picking, you may also want to check out some of the local farms and vineyards in the area or the seasonal festivals coming up on the south Coast.

Foodie Fun in New Bedford

If you are facing yet another week’s menu starring chicken with rice and macaroni and cheese, I have good news.

How do these dishes sound?: Salmon noodle salad and broccoli salad with bleu cheese and creme fraiche. Cured ham and fresh pea farfalle salad with Fondo Di Toscana Parmigiano Reggiano. Baby arugula and rice salad with apple wood bacon. They are not on the menu of one of the South Coast’s fine restaurants. They are about to be on your table!

All the gourmet ingredients you’ll need for these dishes and many more can be procured from Sid Wainer & Son Gourmet Food Outlet in New Bedford. With a little effort, you can turn their gourmet and specialty foods into week night meals. Yes, you can.

When you enter the Gourmet Food Outlet, you are greeted by a receiving line of little jars of pesto imported from Italy. Turns out that pesto can have pizzaz! In addition to your traditional basil variety, Sid Wainer’s pesto parade includes arugula, tomato, artichoke, pumpkin, and spicy pepper pesto.

The exposed brick interior is full of surprises. For example, I give you what I call the wall of funky grains. Tucked into only a smidgen of the outlet’s space, this wall packs in healthy whole grains of all colors and origins, many of which may be new to you. Try Bamboo rice, kamut, purple sticky rice, Chinese black rice, or Himalayan red rice, and I ask you…what does one make with buckwheat groats? The mission of this place is to help people find out!

France has contributed significantly to the treasure trove of wares at Sid Wainer. You may especially appreciate their vinaigrettes (mango, raspberry, and tomato with espelette pepper) and their mustards (whole grain, herbs de Provence, and traditional). Of course, the mention of this country of great gastronomic history leads us to the subject of cheese. Hold onto your hats, head past the cash registers, and behold the cheese room. Yes, this is correct, a refrigerated room of cheese.

Entering this room, you are transported into every travel show you have seen in which a fourth generation cheese monger is explaining the art and subtleties of cheese making and tasting. You’ve stepped into a wonderland of artisan cheeses. Wax covered wheels and triangles wrapped in parchment proudly display their origins: Greece, Italy, France, England. The choices are mind boggling: ash aged Cammbert, smoked Gouda, Provolone, Cheddar and Mozzarella, brie, Roquefort, crusted goat, Chevre Chocolat, pecorino with walnuts…the list goes on.

The spirit of culinary adventure follows you as you move into the produce room. Choose from locally grown micro greens or take a chance on some more unusual items like blue basil, rainbow chard, spearmint tips or watermelon radish. Take a risk on some of the scariest looking mushrooms you’ve ever seen: black trumpet, french horn, shimeji, maitake and hedgehog mushrooms. Top it all off with edible flowers such as rose petals, marigolds and pink orchids.

If you are afraid you won’t know what to do with your purchases once you get them home, visit the Sid Wainer & Son Gourmet Outlet on a Saturday! Each Saturday affords customers the opportunity to sample dozens of delicious dishes prepared using products from the store – each with its own recipe card to take home. The company’s chefs are there to answer your questions and provide inspiration.

Top chefs call from around the world to procure gourmet products through Sid Wainer’s wholesale department. For those of us lucky enough live on the South Coast, these treasure are just a short drive away!

While you are in the great whaling city treating your palette to new tastes, why not also try a wine tasting before you head home to cook? Enjoy!

South Coast Spa Finder

Summer has left us. Sunbathing has been replaced with busy after school schedules, and holiday season mayhem is right around the corner. Luckily, there is still a place where you can at least imagine you are lying on a beach with nothing to do. It’s called a day spa! A good massage may be just what you need to transition from the languid days of summer to the frantic pace of fall unharmed (and without harming anyone else!).

A word about massages; they are like religion. What may be right for you may be wrong for someone else, but they all lead to the same destination. In the case of a good massage, this destination is a happy place where your mind and muscles are relaxed and rejuvenated.

Here is what you need to know and where you need to go for a great massage on the South Coast:

Swedish and Deep Tissue Massage: Swedish massage is what most people picture when they hear the word “massage”. It involves the kneading, smooth strokes, and karate chop percussion moves we connect with massage. Deep Tissue massage uses slower motions and deeper pressure on problem areas. The therapist may use palms, fingers, and even elbows to release muscle tension. Expect to feel a little worse before you feel better after this type of massage as next day soreness is not uncommon. Both of these massage styles are widely used with many benefits including relief of muscle tension and improved circulation. They are the massage classics and almost any day spa will offer them on their service menu. Check out West Island Massage in Fairhaven for either technique.

Hot Stone Massage: You’ve undoubtedly seen the image of blissfully serene customer laying tranquilly with river stones down the length of her spine. You can almost feel the warmth of the stones on your back as you gaze down at the magazine. The technique involves placing smooth warm stones (about 130 degrees) on key points to loosen your muscles. Once the muscles are loosened, the therapist uses hands and sometime the warm stones to give a gentle massage. This type of massage is offered at many spas in the area now including the Spa at Point Independence Inn in Onset.

Reflexology: There’s nothing like a good foot rub after a long day, or before a long day, or anytime really! Reflexologists will tell you this is because points on the feet, hands, and ears are connected to specific organs. The concept is that massaging a foot, for example, affects your whole body. A reflexologist will use pressure and stretches to your feet, hands, or ears to provide balance throughout the body. The technique can reduce pain, improve circulation, and relieve stress. Try a reflexology session at Relaxing Solutions Massage in New Bedford.

Reiki: It is interesting that Reiki is considered a massage therapy because there is no pressure applied to your body and sometimes no touch. Instead of working your muscles Reiki works with your energy. Reiki therapists hold their hands in or over one place at a time for 2-3 minutes. They are working to bring universal energy to the spots that are causing your trouble and throughout the body while breaking any blocks in energy you may have. Individuals who suffer from anxiety, depression, or insomnia report relief with this technique. You can schedule a Reiki massage at MedAsthetic Salon & Day Spa in North Dartmouth. MedAsthetic also offers Hot Stone, Reflexology, Reiki, Pregnancy, Deep Tissue, and Swedish massage.

CranioSacral Therapy: Have you ever been told your problems are in your head? Your Craniosacral massage therapist would agree. During a CranioSacral massage, the therapist works gently on your skull to stimulate the flow of cerebrospinal fluid, which surrounds the brain and the spinal cord. CranioSacral therapy may also include massage to your face and tailbone (sacram). The result is a deep state of relaxation. Visit Still Waters Massage in Marion to schedule a session. Still Waters also offers Swedish, Deep Tissue, Reiki, Reflexology, Hot Stone, and Pregnancy massage.

These are only a handful of massage techniques and day spas that are available to you here on the South Coast. Start now and try them all before the holiday season begins. It’s your gift to yourself!

*Individuals with medical conditions or concerns should speak to their doctor before choosing a massage technique.
