Tequila Goldsicle

leave a comment »

All right, It’s Friday and it’s getting hot out.  Time for a Tequila Goldsicle.  This precious metal pop with a punch is filled with 24 carat gold flakes and sells for a cool grand at the Marquis Los Cabos in Baja California, Mexico.  As you would expect from a frozen treat of this stature, it can be delivered to you poolside.  It is made with Clase Azul Ultra tequila, which is self-proclaimed to be the “finest tequila ever produced.”  I have never tried it myself, and costing around $2000 a bottle, it’s not likely I will in the near future.  Check out other Coinologist All Things Gold archive posts here.

Stacks | Menlo Park, California

leave a comment »

Well my trip to the Bay Area was a good time had by all.  I have some good posts in the works from my trip.  I will start you off with a mouth-watering way to start your morning.  Stacks in downtown Menlo Park is open for breakfast and lunch.   I can honestly say this is my number one, all time favorite way to start the day.  Eggs Louis, which is where crab is substituted for ham in the classic dish Eggs Benedict.  Top it off with a short stack of wheat germ pancakes for dessert, and I guarantee you will not leave hungry, though most definitely happy!
