Beyond Brookledge is a three-day entertainment extravaganza of music, magic, and performance. I went last year with my daughter Jane and we both loved it (see photos below). Part of the fun is that the performers are also attendees, and everyone mingled at meals and other times. It's hard to describe how special and fun this event was.
This year, Beyond Brookledge is taking place May 29-31 once again at the Mission Inn Hotel and Spa, Riverside, California. A ticket includes 2 nights hotel accommodation, scheduled meals, ‘round-the-clock entertainment and social activities with renowned magicians, musicians and comedy performers. I can't recommend it highly enough. I plan to go again this year, and Jason will be there too.
(I had such a fantastic time at Beyond Brookledge that I asked the co-producer, Bob Self, to partner with us on our upcoming Weekend of Wonder).

As much as vaping has taken over the market during the last decade, there’s still a lot of questions about the technology, as well as health concerns that we’re just now finding out about. One thing you can say about smoking: You know exactly what you’re getting, especially when it comes to pipes that you […]
We can’t all go through life with just a pair of sneakers and flip-flops. Sometimes, you have to invest in a pair of high-quality dress shoes. However, you’ve probably discovered that high-end footwear almost always comes with eye-popping price tags. You’ve got to compromise on second-hand or just suck it up and take out a […]
We have a theory about those throw blankets that are barely big enough to cover your legs. The only people who seem to make them or use them are grandmothers, and the blankets are only that small because Nana got bored halfway through the sewing job. Look, we’re sure she means well. But if you […]
