Call in to speak with the host
Milling About visits the Oldest City in America, St. Augustine, Florida. Founded in 1565, the city's quaint brick layered streets lead to The Ponce De Leon Hotel built by oilman Henry Flagler in the 1880s majestically rising above the Spanish Oak trees, now housing Flagler college.
Host Robin Milling was given an historical foodie tour of the city by Anthea Manny of City Walks, who's knowledge of the city was astounding. The yummy stops on the Savory Faire tour included creamy homemade hummus at Cafe Alcazar which is nestled in the deep end of what was once the Hotel Alcazar's swimming pool. The Old City House Inn & Restaurant served blue lump crabcake with caviar remoulade. The final stop was Athena Cafe where the waiter expertly set fire to Saganaki, fried Greek goat cheese bursting with lemon.
City Walks owner Alice Sutherland joins Robin to discuss her walking tours, among them The Creepy Crawl where alcohol mixes with stories of ghosts still lurking.
Robin's visit was hosted by The Casablanca Inn Bed & Breakfast, across from the Matanzas Bay where joggers can be seen each morning at breakfast beating the heat. It is home to the famous Tini Martini Bar where pianist Bob Fraioli plays while guests imbibe martinis like The Windex, made with blue curacao. Owner Michael Miles joins Robin for a chat about the Inn, and what makes St. Augustine a special vacation spot.
It's good to talk.
