C’est La Vie

6 Aug

Downtown Sarasota is blessed with many several good bars and cozy cafes. One of my favorites is C’est La Vie on Main Street. It is a little slice of Paris in the Sunshine State. It’s run by some folks who actually hail from France. You can tell by their thick accents. You can also tell by the quality of their breads and pastries. Morning is a busy time here, but the help is efficient and the lines move quickly. They make a pretty good cup of java too! They are open for breakfast and lunch Monday – Saturday.

I was in the mood for a breakfast pastry this morning, so I ducked in and grabbed some kind of crunchy raspberry delight. It had a sweet and flaky exterior, while the inside was filled with tart raspberry preserves. Man, you talk about delicious??? Oui, Oui. I also grabbed a loaf of olive bread to take home for lunch. Eileen was pretty pleased when I toted that bad boy through the front door.

This is a picture of my raspberry pastry — it was really delicious

C’est La Vie is about as authentic as you will find this side of the Atlantic. They even have sidewalk tables shaded by colorful umbrellas. Grab a seat, order a sweet treat, and watch the world stroll by while you slowly sip on your morning brew. C’est La Vie, indeed!

Double Trouble for Lisa Marie

6 Aug

Lisa Marie Presley is set to follow Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Lopez and Julia Roberts by becoming the latest celebrity to be pregnant with twins.

The singer’s mother, Priscilla Presley, has confirmed her daughter is expecting a double bundle of joy this autumn.

Priscilla reveals, “She wanted it really to be kept a secret for a long time, and I think women should, because they should be able to announce what they’re having and when it’s time to make the announcement.”

The new arrivals will follow a family tradition – Lisa Marie’s rock legend dad, Elvis, was a twin, and Priscilla has twin brothers.

Lisa Marie, who turned 40 in February, already has a 19-year-old daughter, Danielle Riley, and 16-year-old son, Benjamin Storm, from her first marriage to Danny Keough.
