Family Fort Lauderdale

Family Fort Lauderdale


Yes. Back by popular demand, BistroChic Scott is here to write his latest travelogue adventures.

We are off on a hopefully sunny warm Spring Break 2013. It’s been a while since my wife and two kids have been able to travel as family without Jen having to work part of the time. We are all super excited.

In fact, we have had our luggage packed for over a week. Of course, we will say that we packed earlier than normal due to our full work schedules. The early packing meant I overpacked and had to thin out the bags. So, I really ended up packing three times. I learned my lesson: next time, wait until the day before.

Friday was a travel day. We arrived at the airport with just enough time for a late lunch. The first place we saw, we stopped. Not a great idea since it lead to a below average meal at O’hare’s Wolfgang puck. I was disappointed in my Greek salad. It was just blah.


As we hurried to the gate, we realized our flight was delayed. Luckily, Our gate was very close to one of Rick Bayless’s torta grills. So, we split (devoured) a naked roasted tomatillo guacamole. Oh so Good! Next time, pass the puck and eat at the taqueria.

After our delayed flight arrived in warm Fort Lauderdale, it was too late for dinner out. So, we treated ourselves to some room service in our upgraded ocean view king suite.

Yes. That’s right, we arrived at the Lago Mar hotel and were upgraded to a beautiful two room king suite complete with two walk-in closets and two full baths. This room is going to make our cruise rooms look tiny.

After our late dinner, our kids crashed on the dual twin pullout beds dreaming of seashell hunts in the morning.

Stay tuned for more adventure.
