    Jakub is a 3 time Czech number 1 champion of the sommelier, the maximum times you can win the championship and thus says, "Okay so I decided to go to Slovekia and try to win this year and I won the Slovekian Championship for sommelier and now I am invited to do the World Class Master Champion Sommelier in London and only 4 people win each year the title of Master Sommelier. There are only 300 Master Sommeliers in the world, such as the 3 Star Michelin awards. It is kind of a big deal!" he says laughing.

   "It is a boutique and unique wine bistro. We have little pate and sausage and cheese and it is mainly for little something to compliment the wine. We have fun here, to, and as it is only 2 years old now, I guess we are still in the having fun stage instead of the working stage! It is more fun to be the boss since me and Veronika can decide which wines we want, what degustations we want, what tables and basically everything about the presentation of the wines!"Image result for wine and deg prague
  Jakub and Veronika own Wine & Degu of Prague, a very serious yet much fun boutique wine bistro where they have, "About 200 wines that you can come in and enjoy with the glass. I have many from Czech and Moravia, yet I have Italian and American and French and Austrian and Bulgarian and Greece. The Czechs are a little iffy about the Bulgarian and Greek wines, yet the internationals are curious and want to try." says the much revered and experienced sommelier, Jakub. 
   "We do have the degustation every month that is from a vineyard who comes and introduces their wine, and in September it is a vineyard from Sardenia. Again, they are introduced to about 7 wines in a couple of hours and they taste cheese and meats with these. It is always my pleasure when they love the wine so much that they ask me to import it to the bistro!" 
   "The real boss is Henri, my little dog, who people walk by the store and ask if Henri is here today or if he is at home. If I say that he isn't here today, they leave! It is amazing that they only come to see Henri!" 
  Henri, by the way, is hilarious and out of site of Jakub keeps raising his ears to Jakub's remarks that I swear is the way a human would, as if to say, okay buddy! 
   "Something that we have done starting early 2019, is every month a tournament of the wines of countries. It is a blind degustation and the people don't know anything about the wine. They taste and vote. It is about 700 czech crowns and it lasts a couple of hours and they taste 7 wines. After each vote I tell the guests about the wine and which country won, though. The only countries and teams left are late September or early October America vs. Italy and Austria vs. Spain. Whoever wins that shall compete late November for the Championship. They have little cheese and meats and they have fun deciding the best wines of the world. The tourists can join in, too, if they want to do the Champion degustation, tell them to check on the facebook for the exact date and come on in!" laughs Jakub. I say that it is a very cool fun thing to do, like a pub quiz night, yet more interactive~.

  Ariana, the daughter of the owners of the beautiful fusion inside and outside garden restaurant in Prague 2, takes me around the restaurant with grace and sophistication, yet a comfortable affection. It is rare, I say. "O I don't like snobbiness. I don't like this. I want my guests that have stress in their days to come here for relaxation. To feel a relief of the day. To come to my hospitality and all are welcome. We have the lovely garden that guests prefer in the summer, as it is a oasis of calm and it is hidden and although we have the linens, we have the children's playground where the families can come too, to have a nice evening. In the lunch, business people come, yet we are all family here. It is nice that you say I am with graciousness."She is one of the gentle souls of a person who is geniunely concerned for your happiness and comfort. Beautiful and graceful.

                          The beautiful garden of Giardino Restaurant in Prague.
    "The dinner menu is more sophisticated with the seafood and beef presentations of the highest quality and we do serve some great wines, including Italian famous vineyards. I hope that when you come, whether to try our lunch menu or to have a romantic dinner, that you feel comfortable and at home,"Ariana.
   As I walked in today and met the gentle daughter, Ariana, she was laughing with her team photographing food! " O you caught us taking pictures of the food!" she says and invites me to take some pictures. "Everyday I take a photo of food at lunch to post on instagram. It helps the guests to see the real food." She says as she posts it during our conversation. Her instagram is a killer too! GREAT PHOTOS!
   In addition they do have live music and jazz, as recently as July and it is a better idea to check their facebook and instagram links to see the upcoming schedule...warning, you probably won't want to leave! It is that comfortable and funny and fun and the food is Michelin rated, yet affordable.  https://www.facebook.com/GiardinoPrague/
  "In addition, we have birthday parties here, and it is funny to see all of the people especially when a couple of weeks since a lot of little children had a birthday here!"laughs Ariana, "The restaurant is family and families are welcome, of course, and I think that since we have fresh pasta and homemade bread and Italian desserts, that everybody can find something that they love."
"The specialty is fish and seafood, and we try to present the food in its nature. The garden is beautiful and comfortable and surrounded with the wood for the floors and green plants everywhere as if you are surrounded with nature. The feel is for family. My family runs the restaurant and we take care to present it to the best that we can. We came in 1992 it was and we came from the ex-yugoslavia where there was war. We are proud to share our family and our care in the food with the guests that come here."says the very beautiful lady, Arlana, the daughter who pleasantly led me around her gorgeous elegant restaurant, "It is my father's restaurant and I try to manage it as best to my ability. To help him out. The outside garden is a combination of me and my mother, in it's design, though."                                                                   
          ALBERT's PIZZA! That is right...here at the Einstein Pizza on Rumunska 25, you can
find a lovely Serbian Family who has owned and run the college popular spot the last 20 plus years. The pizza's are super huge and super good and the special incentive of show your international student\teacher card lets you and a buddy everyday enjoy 2 pizzas for only one price. The team is fun and always friendly and the service fast. They have so many different types of pizzas that you could literally eat here everyday for 2 months and try new ones! Image result for einstein pizza prague

  The family team is, Vuk, the son, who I dealt with on 3 occasions and every day met me with smiles and affection, not a bother it is the journalist, at all. His team is always friendly, and his mom and dad only speak very little conversational english, so we relied on Vuk to do most of the talking! The outside beer garden is the first thing that you notice about the always lively and loud Einstein as you walk on by and stop to think that maybe if everybody else is having soooo much fun here, maybe you should try it! 
   You know what is super cool about the Albert Einstein Pizza on Rumanska, near the International New York University in Prague? The students and teachers around the world with the Student-Teacher Id card receive 2 pizzas for the price of 1. Everyday! And when the pizzas number too many to count, with the average being about 150Czech crowns for an entire pizza, imagine that amount for 2 pizzas. You and your roommate or backpacker buddy can eat everyday here! 

Akceptujeme tyto karty

  O yes they have beer and wine specials, too, after all what is a pizza college fav without that! The pastas are super good, too, by the way and with a friendly outdoor beer garden and chatty cozy interior, you are promised a fun night! Image result for einstein pizza prague
   "My family loves to laugh and have fun, and we are from Serbia and it is important to us to keep that culture. People should be proud of the place where they came from. I think people like it here since we do have great food, and it is a affordable place for families, which is important to my mom and dad, Zorica and Radoslav. They always put family first, and they know what it takes to make people feel comfortable. We always have the garden packed and you can hear people laughing and having a good time. When the students or teachers around the world come here and learn that they can eat so much with a buddy, they really appreciate it. A lot of the students who live in Prague bring their families here when they come to visit. I hope many tourists from around the world find us from your website, so they can enjoy the residential side of Prague, too, not just the touristy side!" said Vuk when I interviewed him and commented on how loud and fun his family seems to be! "I have a younger brother, too, who just likes to eat the pizza, not work here!"
              In between Prague and the rest of Czech! is a cozy city that the students love named Brno...on the way to Vienna you pass through, so enjoy a lovely 1200 year old wine cellar and lovely wines while you do a 3 hour tour of Brno at ...                           Image result for zbarbrno                                                                                                   I would love to welcome you to the other Czech city, actually there are a lot of hidden Czech cities that are quite charming, one that the students love, 80,000 a year come to universities here from around the world, is the city of Brno. I found a cool funny friend named Zoltan, like a Sultan, yet with a Z! And he named his Spanish tapa and Spanish Wine bar under the streets of Brno, about 3 levels of hidden caverns and total coolness, ZBARBRNO.                 http://picdeer.org/zbarbrno
        Come laugh with Zoltan, who is from Budapest, and drink some great Spanish wine at the ZBAR!                                                        in Brno. Pate. Tinto de verano. Cool cellar. 
                                                              LOCATED AT...STAROBRNENSKA 12           Image result for zbarbrno        

  Here is the very kind and talkative, Zoltan, who is a mixture of cultures and loves Brno. "I was a IT person many years and although I love the city of Budapest, Hungary, where I come from, you see it as a tourist does. 
Brno is much more fun and livable to me, and I love the Spanish culture and am happy to be able to devote myself to learning the wine, too. I have been open only 3 months and Brno really doesn't have a Spanish wine bar, so I thought to open it," he says as we chat about his cool bar. A couple of minutes pass and here comes a group of people from America and the UK. They are added a couple of minutes later and some more join in. "Want to see my cellars below the bar?" Asks Zoltan and they say yes. They invite me and we all troop down the stone stairs to a level below. AMAZING and huge huge is the wine cellar and very beautiful. "I only have wine tastes here, and groups can come down and visit the cellars with glasses of wine if they wish. No food down here, though. Come on there is another level," he says and brings us even deep to the 3rd level, which is more amazing and very long and big. Loved it.  https://www.facebook.com/Zbarbrno/
 Image result for zbarbrno As the group oos and aas we laugh about how totally cool the underground wine bar is. "Maybe in the future I can fill the entire cellar with Spanish wines, yet for now I have a very nice selection." Says Zoltan as he leads us back upstairs. The group wants bottles of wine now, I guess they were very intriqued and happy with the 3 levels of tours below ground, and they order a huge cheese and salami and meat plate to compliment the wines. It looks great, and although I spent 1 hour chatting with Zoltan, had to run. I can't wait to come back, sip some great Spanish wines and try the meat and cheese and talk to my new found buddy from Brno! Zoltan.Image result for zbarbrno
 And since it is about the Spanish wine and the spanish culture here at Brno at the ZBAR , guess what else you can find at the ZBAR? Live Flamingo dancing. I told you it is cool!

   Nowadays, if you are lucky, you can find Stephen, who is world class pinup photographer in the early mornings at Sad Man's,Image may contain: 2 people, people sitting and indoor or at his new secret place to open September 1, named Black Betty, a upscale yet affordable Chop House and Burger Club. Try coming to the Sad Man'sTongue at about 11.00pm, eating a late dinner of great burgers and equally great cocktails or a big old beer and partying til 6.00 am in the "Living Room,. or what I have termed it, the "Meeting Room"where the leopard print couches and the one and only survivor of the Hard Rock Cafe before the fire leather chair sits. The kitchen is open til midnight.          The Sad Man's Tongue til 6.00am. Image may contain: 1 person, smiling
              located at  Konviktská 7.  Image may contain: 1 person  Stephen was the General Manager of the Hard Rock Cafe in Prague many years, "Do I miss it? The Restaurant and concept is great, the company is great, but I don't miss the corporate world. You know, Prague is about Independents, anyway. That is the mystery of Prague. It isn't a big industrial or corporate city, nor does it want to be a commercial city. It is a international city of real people with creative thoughts merging together and that is why I love Sad Man's Tongue. It is my vision and what I really want to do."

  Chris says, "I first met Stephen when a band I was in played at the Hard Rock Cafe 6 years ago. Then about 3 years now, I came to the Sad Man's Tongue Bistro to hear my friend playing and I saw that Stephen had left Hard Rock and started Sad Man's and eventually for the last 3 years Stephen has made me part of the team and I feel part of the family, too, since me and my wife from Wales got married here. Stephen is a famous photographer and he gave my wife her first camera. She loves taking pictures!"says the director of Sad Man's Tongue and Bistro in Prague. 
      The new menu is called Choker Menu for famous people who have choked to death...okay you kind of start to see Stephen's humor... such as the Atilla the Hun who choked or the The Jimmy Hendrix, The Bon Scott, The John Bonham, and when I say what about Elvis Presley, Chris, the new director tells me that they are still investigating this situation...afterall, maybe Elvis didn't choke! Image may contain: food and indoor
   The Sad Man's Tongue is hidden down a little alley, although easy to find at  Konviktská 7.  
               Image may contain: one or more people    I love Stephen at the Sad Man Tongue and Bistro, who used to be the Hard Rock Cafe of Prague Director for many years, 5 to 7 years since(who is counting? STOP!) he opened his own independent coolest upscale dive bar pinup think the dance scene in Tarantino's PULP FICITON burger and bar place in Prague. Here is a clip of how cool and sweet and fun the guy is...he kinda reminds me of a icon director Stephen Spielberg directing Roman Polanski! Have fun, come see the great pinup photography from a real American in Prague and taste the burgers, party til 6.00 am and if you are lucky party with the owner Stephen and his pal and mine, Jonathon of OÇhes Irish Cuban bar in the "Living room leopard room" til 6.00am when the bar closes. 
                CALI BROTHERS Restaurant Bar and Grill in Prague
    and although I only saw Maria acting as a cowboy and the beauty fashion idol Eliza,  I do know that my friend Albert loves the creativeness of great entreprenuers...so here
   we have the Cali Brothers. When I asked if they were from Colombia where I had been held up for about 25 days after my visit from Doha where my bro visited, they laughed..."No, silly, it is for California!, not Cali Colombia! O!" Anyway, the great cook Scott who I adore is from America...somewhere in the west...have fun enjoying his innovative Michelin style food.

  Must check out my 5 year friends, Glenn and Scotty of Agave Cool Mexican restaurant in Prague's newest place named CALI BROTHERS Restaurant Bar and Grill in Prague ...a exotic California upscale fusion restaurant that has such original items as "actually I stole the deep fried avocado recipe and of course who can really say that a recipe is totally 100% original such as my pumpkin schneitzel deep fried, yet if you have never seen it, tried it or eaten it you should come try my signature dishes" from Scotty.  
                      EASY TO FIND ON TRAM 6 opposite the river...Dukelských Hrdinů 48,
 in the newest trendy area of Prague...beautiful decorations from a original architect named Mr. Novak(think Kim Novak( great flaming whiskey drinks from the Bartender/manager named Lukas and of course Scotty, Oxi(his beautiful girl chef) and Glenn's mixtures of fusion Dishes and you have very healthy eating...thank the Lord nobody has eaten the live lobster in the tank named Jerry, though. 
No photo description available.
   "When Glenn(who owns both Agave and Cali Brothers) asked me what type of restaurant I wanted, I said something that is original and that I can create signature dishes in, and since I am American the California culture appeals to me...the menu is healthy and unique and for instance the live oysters in the tank are taken right from here in front and served to the guest immediately. Very very fresh!" laughs Scotty, who is quiet spoken yet enthusiastic and very happy to present to the publich his unique restaurant that is designed totally from Scotty's request of his huge lightbulb lights to Mr. Novak's first(as yet hasn't graduated from architecture school yet) avant guarde modern design. Image may contain: 2 people, people smiling, beard
   Glenn Spicker and Scotty Kelly are kind of legends in Prague and Glenn owns the famous since 1955,   Jazz Club U malého .  
   Glenn loves Jazz and we love Jazz and so it is perfect for my guests! And the Cali Brother's is a perfect blend of aged dry steaks, mussel dishes and oysters and other very well known California specialties with the touch of Scotty's exotic flair. Perhaps you want to try the 3 Crispy Cigars filled with Philly Cheese Steak or the Oysters grilled with tequila, or Cioppino Seafood Soup! 
 He also designs the menu at Agave, by the way, so he is pretty famous! https://www.restu.cz/en/widget-beta/?restaurant_id=33823  For reservations.

   "The food is great, the atmosphere and decor trendy and upscale, the team friendly and of course the signature recipes of Scotty and the great cocktails of our bartenders make, we hope, Cali Brothers a must on the list when visiting Prague!" says Lukas who not only is the Director yet also the bartender tonight! 
    "When I found the place, I loved the openness and the windows and wanted my vison to be here. The name is because a famous literay writer named, Legerova wrote the novel Mechanicky Balet, about ballet dancers and since the famous street we are on is named Legerova after him, I named it that, only with using Mechanical heavy industrial pieces that I pick up that I fancy. The cool addition is the train time table, that they were going to through away. It has the destination, the time tables, it has the entire package since it is a real train timetable and I have it plugged in so every 30 minutes the times flip and change, just the way it would in the train station. It is pretty funny, since it is big and dominates the entire dining room and people are eating and drinking beer and all of a sudden the entire train schedule starts flipping times and destinations and people jump and look up at the train timetables and start laughing and about 3 mintues later it does it again!" laughs Ondraj who absolutely loves his playful memorablia restaurant. I know you will too so jump onto tram 22 and start seeing the real Prague!              http://www.mechanickybalet.cz/      located at Zitna 52

   And Ondraj must love Tram 22, since you can take the Tram first here to Zitna 52, to Mechanicky Balet, and then have some more beers as you jump, back on the Tram 22 to the Bar Vesna!
     "While the menu is fusion American and great bar food, we do have some Czech specialties since the tourists love to try,"says the young nice bartender when he shows me the place and the menu."It's a young team, since my boss is in his early 30s and we have a lot of fun here. Ondraj is always trying to find new mechanical rare items for the bar and even the menu holders he has little tiny vices to held these to attach to the tables. I've been here the entire 3 years and it is a mixed crowd, the young people love the area here to come party and drink some cocktails at night, too, although we are open to midnight only. It is a nice place to meet the young Czechs, though."

  "The window seats are meant to be antique looking with the bench seats that fit curved and perfectly match the windows. It is a historic building so we have to design around the building and not vice versa, yet they turned out beautifully, thanks ot my parnter, Lukas, who had that idea. He is very creative too and the restaurant reflects both my style and his."
Image result for mechanicky ballet
  And since the bar, "is entirely my building and design and it took me 1-1/2 years to make my restaurant, the bar is made of 100% real bricks and the top is old table wood that I carved and fitted myself," says Ondraj. In fact, what would a great bar be without great bar food! Image may contain: food
  Mechanicky Balet is about mechanical parts and "On the wall is a huge Helicopter mechanical engine where the blades would usually go, I bought that piece, which is from a Russian Military Helicopter in Hungary...it was very expensive, yet I loved it. I love going to places to find unusual items such as the stone coal mining cart that I bought and now have trees and dirt in. It is fun to play with my place," says the young and fun owner Ondraj of Mechanicky Balet in Prague. Image may contain: food
  The food is great, too, as I noticed both the funky kind bartender and Ondraj eating a creamy soup with chunks of chicken in it! The burgers are great, too with Guacamole on a couple of these and of course the Jim Beam Bourban burger(adults only...it has real Jim Beam!)  Me? Loved the Mojitos!Image may contain: plant, drink, table and indoor
    "I have my first bar about 5 kilometers from the Center of Prague, yet just take tram 22 to Na Hroude Bar Vesna at     http://barvesna.cz/ or take the Metro A to Strasnice, so that way it is easy for the tourists to find it and tell the tourists that while my bar Mechanicky Balet has some pretty cheap beers, say 30 to 40, the bar Vesna is much cheaper since it is in a local district and the locals insist on cheap beers! It has my style, though with the motorcycles and books and collectibles that I find on ebay, for instance!" says Ondraj.    located at- Na Hroude 61
   Here you can have a beautiful trendy, think San Francisco bar, with very low Czech prices for beers and huge portions of Czech and American food at the locals price...hey it is only 22 , tram ride to it! 
   Some cool funky places that the local Czechs design and take care of can be found if you venture off the beaten path, so to speak!                                         http://barvesna.cz/
   They even have American Hotdogs at the place! Or how about 69 crowns of Black Forest Ham with horseradish and pickled cucumber! For 65 Crowns baked spicy Camembert cheese with onion and cranberries! And of course GREAT CHEESEBURGERS with Jim Beam BOURBAN SAUCE!

        Since the Czech people can claim that they consume more beers per person than any other country in the world, as usual, Libor sticks to tradition and the historical significance with presenting Pilsner as his choice of local Czech beer. Famous around the world and from the city of Pilzen, Pilsner is a delightful light beer that I personally love, too. 

               Say hi to Libor, the big 
boss of the lovely Micovna in Prague. 
  Located at: Staroměstské náměstí 930/7,    http://www.restauracemincovna.cz/Imagen relacionada
   Libor has three restaurants and each one he lovingly keeps to the tradition of the historic building such as the mint house here transformed to the Mincovna Restaurant. Where his chef creates from old traditional czech cookbooks with modern presentations and huge portions, Libor uses the structure and old mints from the 18th and 19th century on drawings and in sculptures.  Plus Pilsner is in the house with domestic wines!

   "For instance we have on the main dishes, the Beef Heart, which is an actual heart of cow and is full of blood so that we need to cook it well and some people are a little squeamish, yet they try and love it, and we have the exotic versions of Mexican fusion, of course," says Jan, Agave's director. 
  "Agave has Mexican and fusion of international flavors that are presented elegantly and exotically and we try to give each dish it's own natural flavor of the food so we don't let guests suggest substitutions."Image may contain: food and indoor
   How about try something akin to the appetizers: Guacamole agave with tortilla chips with fresh cheese, crispy bacon and pumpkin seeds, and caramelized walnuts with pepper and pomegranate. Or let's try corn flour cups:
with duck meat, mole verde and goat cheese with shredded pork, red enchilada and sour cream. These are just the starters, so be prepared to eat a lot of food! 
    We could do dessert with crispy fried plaintain, and cinnamon sugar with nuts, fresh berries, whipped cream, sea salt, balsamico caramel and shaved chocolate!

    The cocktails are scrumptious with many different styles of tequila and you can pretty much have as many versions of Margaritas that you wish!

   "When I train my team it is with respect and learning that I am here to support my team and to make my team happy. I want that joy to transfer to the guests. The restaurant is known for its elegance and for its experience and when a guest comes here each dish is prepared specially. If it takes a little long to come to the table, I want my team to become ambassadors at the Agave. To ask each table if they are in need of anything to enjoy a conversation with the table. To bring the entire night a joy to the guests, the food, the service, the cocktails and of course the tequila!"says Jan. "A person that joins my company is a professional in a company of hospitality, not a waitress. I want people that want to grow with the company and have a salary and chose that career."
             No photo description available.
  "The elegance and the stateliness of Agave is attributed to the owner, Glenn, and the menu is a fusion of brainstorming between me and Scotty, who is Glenn's partner. They both opened California Brothers, aka Cali Brothers about 10 days now, yet I am here at the Agave. Me and Scotty say to each other, maybe we should do a quesadilla with goat chees since everybody loves goat cheese and we try it and give it a beautiful elegant presentation and the guests love it? It is on the menu,"says Jan. "That is the way we work. Scotty does the other fusion types, yet he wants it to reflect the Mexican culture and dishes. We don't do fancy Cinco de Mayo parties. The restaurant is a authentic sturdy elegant restaurant. However, if you want to paint your face white and come do dinner that is up to you!"

       Tonci is from Croatia and has always been nice every time I have interviewed him. He owns Jewel, the  VERY Sophisticated Elegant Boutique Restaurant and Bar on Rytirska 3 and is very proud of his vast selection of authentic Czech Wines. "The menu is international and Czech with Czech tapas and exotic dishes Image may contain: food and indoor   and these compliment the Czech wines and Gin which we serve. It is upscale and shown to present the guests with a Czech experience of a very high standard and most important to me is the Czech representation in terms of all of my wines," says Tonci who is very into having guests that come to Prague and specifically to his Boutique Bar be able to enjoy these.  The wines range from an extensive list of whites including  Veltlínské zelené, Pálava, Hibernal, Muškát Moravský, and Irsai Oliver, to reds including Zweigeltrebe, Rulandské Modré, Neronet, Cabernet Moravia, and Dornfelder.

  "And just to let you know, I love Gin," says Tonci as he smiles and shows me his Gin Cocktail Menu, "We have Tanqueray, and Elephant Gin and Asian Gin Tonic which is, Tanqueray Rangpur, East Imperial Yuzu tonic, lime, lemon grass, along with Brockmans Gin. Very high quality with the various flavors of the Imperial tonic to compliment these. I believe that you would love these sophisticated cocktails and should try with the Czech tapas, perhaps the duck pate with truffle oil, or the cheese plate, selection of sausages, or the mushroom creme with truffle oil, for example." Image may contain: drink and food

  "We redo the menu constantly, and I have fun with and yet insist on every item being in season and of the highest quality. The menu is on the website everyday and people can browse it if they wish.
 The best thing though is to come in and try our service and our dishes. Have fun with the tapas and try a couple different ones. Share, try some Czech wines. Enjoy the elegance and beauty of the bar." No photo description available.

The wine community around the world understands each other and it is a great privilege of me to actually meet these people and to learn from each other."Image may contain: drink, food and indoor
   "I have enjoyed most about being the boss in the sense that I can see the creative work that I have done. I can say that I want to have blue on the walls and I have blue on the walls, for example. That is a silly example, yet for me it is important and the first time that I have had that luxury. And in addition, I have had such a opportunity to visit the great local small vineyards of Czech and Moravia and to taste so much wine!" Says Zuzana laughing. "Okay yes that is the fun thing about my wine bar! And in Prague we have a wine invitation to taste the local vineyards everyday. And I do try to take advantage of the fact that I now am a sommelier and that I can taste all of these wines!" Image may contain: indoor
   "The Czech wines I truly love, having come from the Bohemia section of Czech. Yet when I dine out, I don't select the Czech wines for myself since I know all of them!" Suzana laughs. "The American wines are good, yet since we have to import these, they are a little more expensive and some people elect a wine that is less. It depends on your taste and what you want." 
   The elegance of the charming Wine Bar on Misenska 8 had caught my eye about 1 year since and I walked in and sat down out of the winter cold and had a lovely evening of a couple of glasses of Czech wines. Since that is all they carry, that is about all I could try, yet pleasantly surprised, I had a couple of glasses in the two hours, enjoying the team and the people who sat next to me. The place is tiny and cozy and perfect for intimate romantic evenings, or getting to know your seat mates! Image may contain: food
   To my people who know and love me around the world...they truly know the meaning of "it's not in the kitchen?". Image may contain: 1 person, indoor
     "The way that we choose the wines? Alright, here is our secret, all the sommeliers, which is the entire team, sit around and perhaps we taste 10 wines. We usually all agree that 1-2 wines are better and of the highest quality to enter the wine bars. The big wine bar has about 700 wines and about 50 by the glass. We truly pride ourselves in that fact. You can have a great selection of wines by the glass in each wne bar. We hope that you find a couple you love, and as a sommelier you really don't taste the wine with the purpose of identifying where the wine comes from yet rather if the wine tastes good and is of a high quality."     https://vinograf.cz/

  The big wine bar is located at Senovazne Square and Suzana says that while it is known as a very high quality wine bar with the friendliest service, they hope in the future that the food shall be known around the world, too! "I would say that it is a international cuisine that we have and done in a exotic way." 
  And finally, after a long day of work we can enter the relaxing Vinograf & have 1 glass of wine(or 2,3,4).
                                               LE BOURGIN WINES 
  Does anybody love South African Wine? From the famous Stellenbosch Vineyard.  Valery has two new bottles from the Vineyard of Cape Town, one red wine and one white wine.  "A French colony founded the vineyard a long time ago and that is why I wanted to try it." says Valery. https://www.facebook.com/Le-Bourgin-1065350453487675/  The conversations of Valery about 2 years since, and he does only carry these two from Cape Town, and the red one sold out about one day ago. When I talked to Tamara, his wife, who I met the first time on Thursday, both the red and white were still on the shelf. 
"Hmm, I guess we sold out of the red again. The people seem to love the South African ones."
     Valery says that as I point that out on the shelf.Výsledek obrázku pro le bourgin wine prague

When talking to Tamara she says, "My favorites of course the rose ones. I love these. The champagne we carry is Laurent Perrier and it has a new Rose Champagne that I absolutely love. My ultimate favorite. I love to taste my husband's wines, yet it is his store and he chooses each one." she says. 
One of my new additions is the 7 vineyards from Argentina. It is named Clos de Los Suite and a blend of 7 vineyards and their knowledge...famous ones from the Bordeaux family, a prominent collection of these 7 families. Michel Rolland who is world reknown asked these 7 to come to South America, Argentina, and produce a wine with a vineyard made up of these 7 names. And they came. You know that, Argentina has space everywhere. And they thought lets plant some grapes and make a vineyard."             Výsledek obrázku pro le bourgin wine prague"The wine store 
is a reflection of my selections," says Valery Bourgin, the owner of the boutique showroom 
at Prague. In addition to being the wholesaler
 to restaurants and hotels such as the 
4 Seasons Hotel , Valery's showroom showcases many rare wines that he has come to know and love in the many years he has dealt in wines. 
     Valery's wife loves the Le Bourgin Rose...
The Champagne? "They always use zero chemicals and they always hand pick. Always. Now they have Vegan Wines and you have to make sure zero nonvegan comes in." says Valery. "The traditional way to take bugs or particles in wine barrels out is egg whites. I know, yet it is true. They put the egg whites in the barrels and it draws the bad particles to it and they scoop out the egg whites. Traditional yet effective." Výsledok vyhľadávania obrázkov pre dopyt le bourgin prague
    You should know that Valery, in his quest for the perfect Olive oil, as with the wine, he would only try to find the rarest and highest quality. He finds the one named LA organic spanish olive oil. "That country has the rarest quality and variety. It is a little expensive, yet worth it and we use that olive oil only at home and in the store. And since you asked, yes sometimes me and my wife want a special wine at dinner or we have guests coming over and of course I run to my store and use mine. It is silly to go somewhere else." he says. 
   New 2018? "Italian Prosecco." says Valery. Image result for le bourgin wines          
  Here is the boss, who says that his passions are golf and poker. At least that is when I first met him at his elegant wine store at Prague.
       It is located at Dlouha 739/19 Prague
   http://www.vinslebourgin.com/  +420 222 312 477  
"I have now had a keen interest in the caring about the people and environment of the planet and started caring about the lack of chemicals that the vineyard owners accept in the wines.       The Champagne company always hand pick the grapes off the vines with hands and they turn the bottles with hands. That is the best in the world. They do a 1/4 turn of each champagne bottle that is kept in place years and years. The people that lovingly and caringly turn the bottles do it from centuries of training.       They could
 do 3 to 4 hours of turns and they are aristocratic familys. They take many years to train and they could have 13,000 bottles of champagne to do each day. The people totally trust the carefully trained hand chosen people and the highest quality vineyards use that method. The lower quality uses robotic machines though. It is the mystery and the tradition and the romance of each vineyard along with the highest quality and greatest taste that makes a champagne and wine special." says Valery. Výsledek obrázku pro le bourgin wine prague
"The biological wines are becoming more popular because of the reason that they should instead of because it is a "trend". The biological wines protect the environment. The farmers are very well protected and monitored to see that it is according to the rules. The people shouldn't expect to trust a vineyard then not receive the care and protection they asked for in a biological wine. Some people are allergic to chemicals, in addition, yet the only way they can drink wine is knowing that they aren't using chemicals sprayed on the wine. I have seen vineyard workers in suits that look like your in a nuclear reactor and they ride the tractors spraying the vineyards near schools. Years later you have problems because the children are playing on the school playgrounds as the guys in the chemical suits are spraying the vineyards. Seriously. Now the community is becoming more involved and caring that the wines have no chemicals at all. We have about 90% of the wines here that use zero chemicals. We care about the wines, yes and the wines are a little higher quality and a little more expensive, say 20.00 euros. It protects you and your family reading the back of the labels to see that it is a caring vineyard." says Valerie. Image result for le bourgin prague the wine selections
  "You know Valery sometimes invites his restaurant and hotel clients to try his new wines and we have private tastes here, yet I guess you could ask him for a private tourist taste test and see if he would. He has had private wine tastes before yet usually the tourists come in and buy the wine and ask to drink it here while talking to him. He knows the wine world very intellectually and intelligently and they love to learn about the wine they have chosen," says Tamara, "Yet it doesn't hurt to ask him." 
           Think Clean Cut Industrial, 3 star Michelin Gordan Ramsey trained culinary techniques and you have Thomas of Beers & Cheers. "It is my first and real only baby, although my family has the sports club outside of Prague, here it is all mine. I love my vision, which is come in and eat high quality juicy burgers, the one and only place, perhaps in all of Europe according to you, that has real Philadelphia Cheesesteaks, which they are totally famous for, and Pastrami, which the New Yorkers love," says Thomas as I giggle and giggle. His assistant keeps pointing at me,"See! She sees the humor in your total honest saying what everybody thinks, yet never says, humor!" Yet, Thomas doesn't see his honesty as funny. "It is true. My restaurant is super special with 5 quality drinks that nobody else has in terms of beer and menu items, such as the Fake Lobster Roll, that uses real prawns instead of lobster, that everybody loved at Amori, where I worked with Riccardo. Yet, if they come in and ask me if I have special coffee drinks, I say to them to go to Starbucks. I'm not Starbucks. I'm just being honest. You can eat some great high quality special casual food here and great original beer. That is my place. You want specialty foo-foo coffee go around the corner!" and of course we all start laughing again!

 I keep asking Thomas if he is really Ben Affleck and he is just teasing me, and he says that he has never been compared to Mr. Affleck before, although he has done a lot of accounting while building his first dream industrial restaurant! If you wish to see the complete menu as of today, you can click on the link, although Thomas says that within 2 weeks it should be ready...only open a couple of days folks! https://www.facebook.com/pg/beersandcheersprague/menu/?p_ref=pa
   The Metallic beer is Vegan and the Chocolate Stout is Organic brewed with well water! 
 "I don't want a restaurant where you have to feel the formalness and I don't compare my restaurant to a "working class" restaurant. It is mine, unique and has some items on the menu that will be constantly evolving. The fact that the frier has been here and is a huge and expensive frier has made a challenge to me to use my culinary skills and building my menu around it. It has been fun and I pride myself on the specialty sandwiches that are only represented in all of Prague here." Cool.
   One of the companies that Thomas choose is the funky Delirium Beer, and another is the Metallica Beer that is rather expensive, yet definitely worth it. My Smith's chocolate stout somebody else enjoyed since they thought it was for them! Yet it looked scrumptious since Chocolate beer is my favorite...intriqued?

"It is fun to own my first restaurant since when I was a young child I always wanted to be a cook. I attended Culinary School and I worked in London under the Master Chefs of Gordan Ramsey's restaurant, went to the Island of Jersey and worked in a Michelin restaurant, and came back and worked under the Royal Seal of Approval. I believe that I learned a lot during all of my years and although if somebody came in and asked if I could cook him or her a Michelin level breakfast, I could say that yes I COULD do that, yet at my restaurant I don't cook breakfasts for people! They can eat one of my sandwiches!" he says and of course we start laughing again.Image may contain: one or more people, people sitting, table and indoor

   "In the 3 months that we have been open, the Gallery 44 has had guest chefs, recently from Portugal, where the international talent and fusion cuisine has lent our guests a multitude of tastes to please the palette..."says Honza Simice, or something to that effect since when Honza the charming owner of Fat Cat Brewery, attached to Gallery 44 his new fine dining restaurant, and now the new fine dining Bubble's Champange featuring Veuve Clicquot Brut,   Související obrázek talks you usually are giggling. If you are human. Honza has a catching sense of humor and is always making jokes. Yet the fine dining Gallery 44 is a seriously romantic, intimate and very private dining experience below in the centuries old cellar of Fat Cat Brewery.                                                                                          https://gallery44.cz/cs/uvodni-strana/

    "The creations and plate presentations are fusions of International flare with the Portuguese recipes and the Czech recipes, for instance. And now we are starting a new menu of fusion with a new chef. I want my guests to be surprised."
   "When you have a image of opulence and sophistication, you must invest in that image. My chefs are the best in the field, yet I invest in them since I fly in chefs from Portugal or now today one is landing from Japan and they stay here 2 weeks and do intesive menu rearranging and training of my chefs. I give them the best that they can have in a hands-on situation, not from a school or a cookbook. They appreciate that, I know because I see the presentations that they make for the guests and we are booked every night since 3 months. And when I spent $850.00 per chair, I had too. You can come here and sit in the most luxurious chair ever and have a dinner of $85.00 to $200.00 degustation and when you fly back from the vacation you  can brag about how important and how loving you felt that night. That is why I built it."says Honza.

    "You know, Gallery 44 is me, too.                  It is a little bit more refined, yet me and Thomas had tons of fun redecorating, which we made new floors, new tables, new chairs, and all the sculptures, design lights and art is new. That is why it is a Gallery. Yet when you want opulence, you have it here."

As elegant and sophisticated and luxurious as Gallery 44 is, FAT CAT BREWERY is playfully silly and fun and basically a place where friends and family can come and eat great burgers and drink the Czech micro breweries from the tap, watch your favorite sports teams on the televisions and yes the lady of the house can have fun sightseeing knowing her husband is in good hands.

      I always remember the first time walking into Fat Cat Brewery and meeting my friend, Honza Simice. I commented on how funny it is that he named his unique and specialty trendy Pub and Restaurant Fat Cat since his last name was "mice". He didn't know his last name was "mice "in American English and I couldn't beleive how clever and funny he is, yet doesn't see the simple ideas of to do lists. Mr. Simice is always a little too humble for a advertising public relations dream and we have to coaxed him a little to have him see the greatness of his ideas! Since Honza is a big guy his only response was, "Hmm I never thought about it yet the real reason I named Fat Cat that is because I am a big Fat Cat!"        IT IS ABOUT THE BEER AT FAT CAT PUB SINCE IT IS NAMED FAT CAT BREWERY AND PUB!                                                                                                       

               PS: the food is great here! 

  The light wood sturdy tables and bar stools, the black and red playful cartoon figures and colors and the just real great beers and normal huge plates of food make it a friendly and fun place to come to. And when the hubby says, "let's stay here all day, you can sip a beer and have him make new friends as you check out Prague!"
  "The chef brings every item for me to try. I have my first restaurant and I want it to be the best for my guests. If I love a beer, like Fat Cat's own Summer beer, yet the guests don't, we make a new version. I try the beers and my team asks the guests if they love it. I try the food and my chef is always making fish and chips or new versions of burgers or steak tartar already mixed since people are very lazy and they need the tartar mixed for them!"he jokes.
   Here is the friends, Honza, Shelby and Jessica behind me in the front!                                                      Nachos are great here!

                     Hmm let's see the Wedding Cakes at the Prague Bakeshop... 

     and has a great sense of humor thanks to the owner Martin, who is DELIGHTFUL. I love him and he is one friend at Prague I always love to chat with. "Yes and now my wife who has opened her little Bakeshop Little Bakery on the opposite side of the Charles Bridge has made me eat and drink healthier the last couple of years. She does the smoothies of fruits and vegatables and you can find a lot of vegan in her shop. I don't know if vegan is healthy for you since people have been eating sweets and bread many years, yet they love it." says Martin.

    OK! How does Martin stay in such great shape? "I do eat the food, I love my wife's strudel apple recipe, which, again, is healthier than the traditional Czech with natural ingredients. I eat the smoothies, and I try to stay in shape. The bakeshop is very busy and that helps too." Bakeshop : Croissanty, Mufiny, Cookies suÅ¡enky
The little bakery, the wife of Martin at the big bakeshop, is located at u luzickeho seminare 22, right opposite the Charles Bridge. Here his wife has fresh bakery items with veggies and fruit smoothies and Martin says, "She is much more into healthy alternatives than me and she is a very good baker. She bakes the vegan items to have in my big bakeshop. Eventually when the kids are grown I would love to be a professional chef since I love to cook."
"You know my wife and I have two Air B&B's and you can add these too, if people want to come and stay at Prague they know that they stay with nice people." he says and that is totally true. Where is the wife now? Martin laughs, "She is on her way to Austria since she is breeding our cat. It is a special kind of cat and has been with a stud cat,-I am not joking," he interrupts my story when I start laughing. "We wanted a special cat and found one in Austria and she drove to Austria today to pick up the cat."        Bakeshop Sandwich

Totally Centrally located with the usual Fish and Chips, "that I actually took off for 6 months since the fish wasn't the greatest quality, and when I took the Sports Pub over from Gordan, I changed the entire menu in terms of wanting the highest quality compared to just let's put on the traditional menu of a Irish bar and let the people drink!"says the very charming and a 4 year real friend of mine named Jonathan.        https://www.oches.com/ at Lilliova 14 125 meters down a alley from the Clock Tower off of Karlovy street about 65 meters from the Charles Bridge~!

  "It is all about the Sport Sports Sports,"says Jonathan who was a customer on his trips to Prague from London a couple of years. Became great friends with Gordan, who had owned the bar about 15 years. "I made a great life and had a great challenge against the stock markets in London many years. I was stressed constantly and when I realized how happy I was looking forward to my many years coming and drinking a pint of Guiness at Oçhes in Prague, I finally said, that I would be happier in Prague running a Irish bar where I could drink a pint of beer with my friends and party til 5.00 am without worrying about my meetings at 8.00am, own my own business and lead a happy life. I approached Gordan and I bought it. It has been about 4 to5 years now, and do I miss the million pound deals everyday? No, I am happy to hang out with Stephen, who used to be the General Manager of the Hard Rock Cafe in Prague 6 years til he opened the SAD MAN'sTONGUE BURGER and PINUP dive bar. We drink til 5am chatting with friends and I have a woman I love. I am very happy and I love my VERY CRAZY GUESTS THAT RANGE FROM STAG GUYS DRESSING AS PLAYBOY bunnies to western sophisticates looking for a great place to watch their favorite sports teams!"he says.

  "So ya, my life is a mixture of the very big and prestigious corporate world of 5 star hotels and the very personal farmers and people that bring such high quality products to the people that demand it.      You know, it is funny, since you would think that the people at 5 star hotels, the clients wouldn't be such a comfort to work with, yet they are the best. They immediately open up to you upon presenting service. They expect and welcome commuication and great service and it is such a pleasure to offer it. I spent about 5 months after leaving the 5 star environment of Prague in a 5 star in Puglia Italy.     I loved the people and the region, yet the Italians of Puglia are so provincial and steeped in the tradition of the real generations of living in the south of Italy that for them promoting themselves is something that is foreign. I tried to help with that. Here you can find over 100 personal small farmers and the wine that they produce in addition to the olive oil from that region, which was my first love of Puglia,"says Veronica. Image result for wine o clock prague food
   'I do private cooking for guests, if they request lunches. Say from 1.00pm to 3.00pm. I prepare 6 courses and laugh and cook for the clients and they drink the wine!,"Says Veronica.

It isn't food that Veronica serves you, it is her. Her loves. Her passion and her experiences that she LETS you into. I like her upon meeting her. I loved her upon spending about 1 hr. with her. You will too. Related image
  "We have 3 reservations. From 5.00pm to 7.00pm, from 7.00pm to 9.00pm and from 9.00pm to 11.00pm. I cook in front of my guests on the wooden counter and I try to give some great dishes of my own recipes and that of the mediterranean. They can range from octopus and fish which I find fascinating to work with to meat, which I find a bit boring. I love to work with the local regional products of Puglia and I love to talk to each person about the wine preferences, which is honestly why I rarely do degustation menus. I have over 50 wines by the glass and it is a waste to say you must drink this and this with dinner. You tell me what you love and we find the perfect wines together."
 "Since I had worked as the big operational manager of a major 5 star in Prague many years, I was used to the finest service and the prestigious clients and I personally love that high fast paced life, yet when I stopped I didn't really know what to do with myself. What do I love? What should I explore! in life? And I loved cooking and wine and friends. I started to find out about a region of Italy which I now love and promote here in Wine O'Clock, which is Puglia. I only carry wines of Puglia and some Czech wines. At first, when I finally opened the little boutique industrial wine restuarant it is only to have a place to have my friends gather and drink some wine, watch me cook and chat. Now it is too busy for my friends and I rarely see them!"admits the great lovey boss, Veronica, of Wine O'Clock in Prague.

I try every year something form his menu and when I tried,  O My Gosh, having lamb tartar and caramelized chocolate it is unbelievable...trust me you can not make this at home. He has been on Master Chef and is a judge of Master Chef. He is one of the most trusted, talented and respected chefs in all of Prague, and when I had the pleasure to interview him a couple of days since, the team said they had to call him to coax him awake, he had been filming the Master Chef friendly competition with guests til 1.00 am the night before!

  I love inteviewing entreprenuers such as the 4 Mexican friends that own Las Adelitas in Prague...come meet the great risk takers who have Prague the home away from home here with the 100 plus team cast of characters that have made the success story of the best Mexican real authentic food and Margaritas fun & famous in Prague! Výsledek obrázku pro las adelitas prague

   Fernando is from Tijuana, yes that is right San Diegoians! Our favorite party place in Mexico with the authentic real Mexican bars and fancy,   "Hey mom look what I brought home":                                     Sombreros!
   When I tell Fernando how much we love to walk from San Diego border to Tijuana to drink that Tequila with the worm, he corrects me! "It is actually the Mezcal that has the worm in it, a variety of distilled agave spirits and most come from Oaxaca, yet the Americans always think it is the Tequila. Another thing about Tijuana is that a great number of tourists come for the high quality gastronomy that it is famous for in terms of Mexican food at the restaurants. The seaside is great too, yet although Europe and the world knows about the hidden treasures of Mexico, I think that Trump is right in the sense of CNN or Fox News, for instance giving fake images of the reality of the world and culture!" Okay, somebody from Mexico agreeing with Trump I didn't expect to hear! And the high quality Mexican food in Tijuana means that we have to venture a little away from the party scene and discover the real Tijuana! 
   "We have live music on Fridays at the Central Location(near the Clock Tower) with Mariachi players that are Mexican yet they are independent and they play when they want. They usually alternate here at the Americka location and the Lucemburska location on Thursdays, yet it isn't Luis and me and Rodrigo and Patricio and David being Mariachi or we could do that everynight,"laughs Fernando. "We kind of have to accept when they come!"  

      Another item of great interest is the Day of the Dead spanish Dia de Muertos, where they provide facepainters for guests and parade to the central location with Mariachi and remember the loved ones who have died. A moving emotional ceremony.  Výsledek obrázku pro las adelitas prague

In addition to the 4 locations they now have, the first one having been started at the Americka street, they are the official neighbord Ambassadors to Mexico in Prague and have organized a block street party the last 7 years in September. Výsledek obrázku pro las adelitas prague

  Tri Stoleti is the hidden Czech and International Michelin presentation Restaurant of Prague.

                                                           located at Misenska 70/4

   "It is a restaurant of business lunch meetings, loud events, romantic dinners and intimacy with friends," says the charming director of Tri Stoleti who gave me a hint of Czech hospitality yesterday with the very beautifully prepared and yummy soup named from Old Bohemian style "kulajda". 

The restaurant is a romantic hidden jewel with traditional formal service in a elegant setting. The menu varied with Czech Old-Style goulash " Ferdinand", or Roasted duck on honey, red and white cabbage or my personal favorite Rabbit leg with sage and Mushrooms! 

  Tri Stoleti translates to 300 hundred years mainly since the actual building that the very elegant and exotic Czech and Italian restaurant is in is about 350 years old. The head partner is Martin, who is the master chef and all of the creative dishes that are so sophisticately prepared come from his recipes of 12 years at the hidden alley renowned restaurant in Prague.

  "When you try the soup, which is "kulajda", a typical Czech soup, it is spiced very heavily with dill. If you are not used to the spice perhaps it is too sweet for you. It is typical here, yet the people in Germany or Austria, for example may not be used to it. When the spices from long ago went from the orient and various European countries to trade in Venice, dill is one of these. It is fascinating to taste the delicate additions that Martin does with his creations." says my favorite fan, the director! 
             http://www.tristoleti.cz/index.php/cs/                   Tři století
  Martin is the head chef and one of the partners of 12 years and has always been full of energy when doing the interview. I caught him on a Saturday and he was showing me his new addition which is the front cafe where, "it has been about 1 and1/2 years that we added the cafe. It is usually for the people who want a cake and cafe and maybe just want to try the restaurant. Maybe they think the restaurant is too formal or fancy and they see the menu here and they say, hmm, let's eat dinner, too. They can sit outside in the outside garden or inside. If they just want to be very casual and order soup or appetizers here, they can do that too!" They have new technology ipods as menus and you can see each and every item. They are almost too beautiful to eat! 
  "I am very honored that you say my food is Michelin prestented, although the restaurant is very elegant and we try to make it as beautiful and soothing as possible with the running fountains, I choose to create with my style the best ingredients that I can find fresh everyday here in Prague's markets. The results are the plates that you see!" says the very humble Martin of Tri Stoleti! 
         Hey! I found a AMERICAN STEAKHOUSE in Prague, actually 2 named JAMA which has two locations, one a traditional Czech decor at V Jama 7, and a AMERICAN STEAKHOUSE ATMOSPHERE AT OSTROVNI 26.

    When Max Charles introduces me to his beautiful Czech wife, I learn a couple things that make Americans different from most cultures in the world. "When I met Max he would say, OK see you tomorrow. Or yes, that is great we'll get together next week. Yet he never meant it. Ever!"laughs his wife. "When a Czech, or a European says, Ok I will see you tomorrow, they see you tomorrow. When a American says, Ok see you tomorrow or O yes we'll get together, we'll have a beer on Saturday, for example, they never do!" Max Charles and me start laughing, "Yes that is true,"I say. Max says,"The reason for that is because we are very friendly as Americans, yet it is real on the surface, yet that doesn't mean we want you coming over to our house the next day. A American always wants to be happy and give happiness and real friendship. They don't want to disappoint. A Ok see you tomorrow gives happiness and hope, but of course tomorrow we will not see you and we won't have a guilty conscience about  it either!"Yep! 
  And does Max Charles miss Chicago, where he is originally from? "I married a Czech girl, who started to work for me and the restaurant, yet we fell in love and I stayed. I am still American. As a matter of fact, when Obama's election results came in, we had televisions and television crews set up here to film the results. Image may contain: 5 people, people smiling, people standing, beard and indoorI am American, not really a EXPAT, yet not a immigrant. My family has come to America and my wife now speaks English. I speak Czech and French and English, of course. It is a global world, yet I want people from around the world to enjoy Prague and to enjoy American great food. That we give in the form of Steaks, Burgers, and Tex-Mex, which is different from Mexican food. It is American Mexican!" says Max Charles. No photo description available.

  "At first from University in 1991, I moved to Paris and everybody in Paris said that if I loved Paris I would most definitely love Prague more! I didn't really think about Prague, yet came to visit and stayed since after 1992. I opened the first Jama with a partner here at the V Jame 7 and the second location, which has a more upscale American Steakhouse look to it, at Ostrovni 26, which is back to back against Serial Burgers,"says Max Charles THE AMERICAN BOY who made it big in Prague.  No photo description available.

  We laugh when Max Charles says, "I have yet to find the great quality of lager that the Czech culture has compared to American beers. I have only American food, American whiskeys, bourbans, yet my beer is Czech!" Challenge? 
    I know that the ONLY place in the world where Boubon is made is Kentucky, right? Of course you have to drink Jack Daniels, or the real drinkers are 100% loyal to Johnny Walker only. Johnny Walker red and black, blue and green. Yet ONLY Johnny Walker! It is a cult kind of bourbon thing and here at JAMA you can find it! Image may contain: 1 person, indoor
  I know from traveling that people in the world are fascinated with the AMERICAN CULTURE, which of course doesn't necessarily mean that they are fascinated with Americans, just everything American! And especially if you are from America and out a couple of months, the rich creams and exotic foods start to weigh you down, that is when you crave a BIG FAT AMERICAN BURGER or STEAK! You have it here!

   Meet Annie, who's name is too long to pronounce (Ariundzayaa) above, the gorgeous and very happy, always and that is translated to always happy. She is happy the first day I met her about 3 years now and today she is beaming with joy. I ask her how she gives that much fun to people around her. "I have a great team. It took us 5 years to find the best team and now everybody is supportive and loyal and we have fun with each other. We know the responsibilities and that the guest's come first, yet they treat me as a friend and a boss. That is important and me and my husband, Petr Jr. have tons of fun with the chef, too. We used to have funny names of foods that coincide with the pictures on the walls of Petr's father, who is the famous Czech artist, Petr Urban, yet the only dish we kept is named "farts". It is a meat dish with cream sauce and is very sweet. That is original. It is the favorite of my guests and it is one that I hope you to try today." and of course I do and loved it. 
                      The fun and lovely girl from Mongolia who came to Prague and fell in love with her boyfriend Petr Urban Jr., yes that Petr Urban the famous comic artist who's funny comic jokes adorn almost every inch of the restaurant and pub named U PIVRNCE which serves Staropramen and "Farts" a great Czech dish. Image may contain: food

    Okay, so you can have traditional Czech meals, or fattening sandwiches and fries and the local beer Staropramen or you can try a salad if you are on a healthy day such as I am supposed to be everyday! The place is a great picture place to enjoy the Czech humor and see the difference in the culture and what they find to be funny. Peruse the upstairs and take a look downstairs and just have a beer if you wish. Yet the food is the best that I tasted in Prague.

     The above art is one of the about 50 pieces of huge art by artist Petr Urban, the Czech icon who is loved everywhere in the country. He has comic books for sale in the restaurant, too, if you want to bring one home with you and his art covers every inch of the restaurant, both upstairs and downstairs. "The only space is downstairs with white walls that in the last 2 months we have had customers write their own quotes and draw their own art. The people love it and the colorful room brings the same spirit of fun and joy that Petr gives to the guest. I love the room downstairs!" says Annie when she shows me "her" artist's wall. 

                                      Located central Prague on Martinska 419

      Jan or Honza, which depends on the country you come from, is the owner of Flirt Bar in Prague. He is a very sweet nice person who says in his Czech language, thank you google translate, that he has owned the club 10 years and that many people come to sit at the cafe at night to have a couple of cocktails, in addition to the alcohol variety, they have the non-alcohol kind too! They have something that they do named Meeting After Work Events and you can check the schedule, although it starts at 6.00pm, that is 18.00pm for the europeans, tonight is one of the events and you are all welcome to have a great time with friends, meet new friends and attend the Meeting After Work event. You will probably meet a lot of local Czechs and after all, isn't that a reason to visit a country and culture? To meet the locals? April 10, April 17, April 24, are the April events. 

 Everytime I walk in the alley near the Flirt Bar I always see tons of people sitting in the outdoor chairs and tables and inside and they are always a mixture of people and languages. It has always been one of my favorite places to have a glass of wine, yet when I met Honza today he laughed at me and asked, "You do know it is a Gay bar, right?" And I, of course, said O seriously, wow I didn't know. And he says laughing, "Yes that is why we have the pride flag with the colors!" O. Okay well, I asked, is it alright if you are straight and come here? And he says, "Yes of course everybody is welcome to my bar as long as they are here to have fun and be friendly!" Image may contain: 14 people
   Located on Martinska street number 419, I always love partying and dancing at Gay Bars since the guests are the nicest and wildest ever it seems, at least the team here always seems to want to have fun and you can dance anyway you want to without people expecting you to be a perfect dancer. And since I love to dance wild, I love to dance here!

  "Jirka is my friend of many years and I am very happy to partner with him as my head chef and our friend Leo. Jirka is very famous from the oyster bar and here he is the happiest as he can create anything to the pleasure of himself. The menu is Italian, as the Love It is first in Milan, yet here every recipe is Jirkas." says Viktor, the very enthusiastic Czech Capo of the restuaurant LOVE IT prague!                             
  'Yes, okay we have the wine from Milan that the LOVE IT restaurant provides to us and the jam and a couple of Italian speciaties, yet where as Milan has pizza and pasta, we don't pizza and pasta.'says Viktor. "I would say that ours is a Czech presetation  of the finest way to create with Italian products, yet very Czech. And we want to do it that way. Higher quality and with a little bit higher price, yet not really too much!"

  "The Italian food and recipes are 100% Italian, yet Jirka creates these very exotically. He has gotten a great reputation already and people are very pleased to see the lunch menu of only around 10 euros. Yet at night we have a little tiny bit higher, and beautiful plates. You must try and since you said that  you love oysters I have a treat for you!" says Viktor, as Jirka comes from the kitchen to give me 4 oysters. YUM!

   So, Jirka, tell me why you love LOVE IT! ''You know, the oysters on the grey stones, is a classic of mine, yet here at the Italian Restaurant, LOVE IT, I can create with all types of foods and recipes that are mine, yet using Italian ingredients and stay true to the Italian culture. It gives me much greater freedom to do anything that I want to do and present it my way. I am as lucky to be working with Viktor as he says he is lucky to work with me!" laughs Jirka. And his oysters are delicious with ginger and marinated juice that is lovely.

    It is a great Local in Prague 2 where you feel that you can come in with friends and taste some great Micro Breweries of Czech, about "100 or more. We started the Pub as a Craft Beer Micro Brewery shop where friends could come in and buy the bottles and we have a couple on tap. Every time we finish a keg we choose a new Brewery to try. We have tables and chairs and a great bar where you can sit and enjoy the beer, and we are not cooks, we don't have a kitchen, but we can russle you up some great sausages or cheese and meat plates." says one of the three owners, Honza, the others being Vaclav and Franta. 
Okay time for instagram captions, here I have one to try,    "Alright buddy, get over it, have a beer!" 
  "I am in ITTech and my partner, Vaclav, is professional and we do the pub because we always talked about opening our own pub and trying great Craft Beers from Czech and finally we found the place and it has been 2 years now. We both do professional jobs during the day and the fun job is here since it is opened everyday at 3.00pm. We see a lot of locals and friends and I am happy that the ex-pats have started coming to introduce themselves and say hi. They like the casual atmosphere of no pressure and just sitting around having a beer. The tourists have started finding us the last year and we have a couple of beer tours of Prague that bring in tourists once a week. It's nice since they are totally happy to try the Czech beers." Výsledek obrázku pro pivoteka beers and more
"Try the specials of the day on tap, the draft beers or grab a bottle and head to the table and open it. The place is very casual and it is a bar to have fun with friends, to make new friends. It is casual. Me and my partners are in the process of opening our own brewery pub and serving food at the new location. Here is the baby and we want people to know and appreciate and learn about micro Czech Breweries. Beer is great. Enjoy it."
 While I chatted with Honza, a couple of friends were drinking some Craft beers for about 1 hour, trying several different ones. They got hungry and instead of running down the street to the Einstein Pizza, they asked kindly of Honza if they could order a pizza and stay and eat it while they tried more craft beers. He said that is alright and they did! It was funny to see the Pizza delivery guy come to the beer bar! 
Honza teaches the Israel method of self defense, too, if you are interested give him a call.

                    You know, basically if you enter the Beer and More Pub and you don't like drinking beer, maybe Czech isn't the right country! Ha ha ha being the country where people consume the most beer per person in the world, you really have to try the local breweries and the best place is here. With pints at around 50 to 60 czech koronas, (the center of Prague you'll pay 80 to 100 czech koronas per pint) it is a great place to mingle with the locals in the affluent section of the city right next to the New York University of Prague. Image may contain: 7 people, people smiling, people sitting, drink and indoor

We taste and we say alright let's try that one. If they have bottles that is better since we can carry them all the time. Or they have to wait til we have a tap ready. We do have new beers on tap all the time and I hope you come to try one of these!"he laughs.

   Lukas, who is the Director of the 1869 Gambrinus building inspired 20 year Traditional Czech Restaurant, Stupartska(a name that I love although find difficult to say) says, "Basically we give the tourists and the locals great traditional Czech food and beer at great prices. The entire Pork Knee is around 300czech crowns, which is very reasonable. In America, you say you give steaks which are about $30.00 to $800.00 if eating Kobe in Japan, but honestly here you could eat the huge Pork Knee with about $13.00. That is very inexpensive. Maybe that is why they love the restaurant! The ghoulash and the traditional Czech food is always the favorite. So, okay try the Ghoulash stew in BreadBowl and have your friends try the   Sirloin in cream sauce, dumplings, cranberry , or Roasted pork neck, white cabbage, potato dumplings or Lamb shoulder on garlic, spinach leaves, potato dumplings or Roasted Duck or 1000g Roasted pork ribs with a mixture of spices and honey with horseradish and mustard 335,00 Kč. Yes, that is right 335 only!" http://www.pivnicestupartska.cz/kontakt.html

I don't know why!"laughs Don, who is Lukas's right hand man at the very traditional and totally authentic Stupartska Restaurant in Prague. I tell him I know exactly why. Because it is very foreign and totally fun to eat a pork knee with a sword in it and totally funky to eat the breadbowl. It is Prague! Image result for stupartska restaurant prague
  I loved the director, Lukas, who is very friendly and keeps showing you the funny pictures of the food I guess he takes for granted, yet for us are something special. It is, afterall nice to come to Prague and try some of the local cuisine that the Czech people would serve you in their own homes. And besides the food is very healthy, although the portions are huge!

            Okay I bet  you have never seen Waffles like this before, brought to you from  the                                       young couple from Russia who just one day decided to start a                                                 Waffle and Coffee Boutique in Prague, with such exotic items as Thai Waffle and Gluten Free(mention EmmeAnesBook and the Gluten expensive is on us) and Chicken and Guacamole, Fresh Salmon, and my personal favorite Sour Cream and Cherries, Ricotta with Pear and Nuts and Honey, and on and on. You can have a waffle for breakfast with sweetness and a waffle for lunch and dinner. Please come try. They are super healthy and fun!

One day Gleb and his beautiful Russian Wife decided to open their own business. They started this cool Waffle Breakfast and Lunch place where the waffles are huge, as you can see, and made for a lunch or dinner, not a sweet snack as in America. The very interesting idea about these waffles, by the way is that they are totally healthy and of course the gluten free is something that more and more people are looking for. I found the little chic restaurant very relaxing and innovative. Something a little different to try and it is much more fun to come to the Waffles Restaurant and just have a coffee and a chat than any other restaurant. Image result for coffee and waffles pragueThey also have soups, salads, playful breakfasts such as Eggs Benedict, English and American style breakfasts, yet the waffles are something fun for you to try!

It is funny to see the happiness and appreciation when people try the Coffee and Waffles Cafe. As a matter of face while interviewing Gleb, 5 guys from Naples came in joking and laughing and decided to try some espressos. I told them they should buy some waffles and they could not stop laughing at the signs of Waffles and the menu. I asked why they thought it so funny since in America Waffles is a breakfast item that we eat everyday. They said because they  had never heard of a waffle restaurant before and so then they ordered waffles. It is pretty interesting to see people go from laughing about a waffle place to eating their meal and saying, "O my gosh I love that place!"I say that yes Americans eat way too many waffles everyday for breakfast and when they find it here in Prague every American will tell their children as my father always told us at Walt Disney when we sat down to eat, "You are going to order from the Chidlren's menu and like it!" I can laughingly see the American families seeing that after a couple days of Pork Knee and Ghoulash and the children eating very little, rushing to the Coffee and Waffles for the "children's menu" prices such as every waffle from 115 to 159Czk.

  I fould the couple that own Coffee and Waffles very fun, young and enthusiastic to serve the Czech locals and tourists from their very healthy and yet playful restaurant. You can basically have just about any kinds of ingredients they carry on your waffle. Just ask. Gleb chooses the best from the local markets and local farmers and everyday he shops for the freshest to offer to his guests. He and his young wife love the people that come in, the team is ALWAYS SMILING AND HAPPY  when they approach the table and they absolutely love their restaurant. It is very cool, actually to try the waffles and it is such a treat to be able to eat a meal here instead of just the way Belgium or American people see the waffles. We eat these at breakfast and as treats, the way that you would eat ice cream or cakes. Here it is a complete healthy meal. Yum...

    With 30 beers on tap too numerous to mention, you simply must try to find the Prague Beer Museum Pub and check for yourself, although it is very easy to find and drink a czech beer since it is located right at the Charles Bridge. 
   Yes and Se, the owner, along with his Serbian Partner, Boban Tomic, are all about the beer. 
    "Since I grew up in San Francisco, coming to Prague was a very different experience. The people in europe have a different work ethic and it takes a while to learn that you are in their country and you must at least understand and try to do business there way. Of course they appreciate you coming here and wanting to make a life here, yet it is their customs that you have to get used to,"says Se. Image result for prague beer museum pub
 It is truly a beer culture and although the owner, Se says, "I grew up in San Franciso and honestly was never a beer drinker. I grew up in the Napa Valley with the best California wines and drank these. At the age of 27 me and a friend opened a nightclub in San Francisco, a supper club, that got so popular that 3 years later a New York Company bought us out! And that started my journey around the world for 2 years. I even spent Sylvester, which we call New Year's Eve, amoung the pyramids in Egypt." begins Se's story.
Image may contain: 1 person, sitting, drink, table and indoor A flight at the Prague beer Museum consists of 5 beers, and since they always have at least 30 on tap, you would need 6 flights to drink every one of these. Does it happen?

    "All the time," says Se, 'Yet you could have friends come in here, as tourists, let's say, and they order 6 flights and they all taste each one. If you drink 30 beers in the flights you will have a very strong buzz!" I perhaps would fall off of the bar stool! 


Image result for prague beer museum pub
Se's story continues, "Finally visited Prague and in 5 days fell in love with the culture. I ended staying here eventually and now have owned the beer museum, which originally had 3 locations and now only these 2, the last 10 years. At first when we started the beer museum we wanted to travel around Czech Republic and find breweries ourselves and we would drive many miles and come to a small brewery and after a chat the owner would reluctantly agree to give us 2 liters to try. We would say, um we need 100 liters for our bar on a regular basis. He would say yet I only make 100 liters total and I would say okay make 200 liters total and the 100 liters we buy will totally pay for that. And he would say o that is too much work!" 
"Czech has at least 380 breweries and at first when we started we would just drive around and taste everyone. Now, there is more, since the micro brewering in the world has just gotten way bigger and people that come to my places love to taste the new ones. It is a little higher here compared to the rest of Prague, yet still cheap compared to the rest of Europe. A top high price for one of our huge beers, since we have 3 sizes, is only the premium about 5.00euros. Yet in Germany people expect to pay at least 6.00 euros for just normal beer. And we are always packed here. Everyday and night the two floors with people having fun and drinking beer. The food is Czech since the people that come here want to taste culture, essentially, we are in Prague. I thought it only right to give the tourists the Czech food along with the beers.! " I love the place, yet funny as it is, I usually only drink my one cherry beer everyday that I love! Image may contain: people sitting, table and indoor
    Image result for cafe kampus  Naprstkova 272/10"I started as a Squash owner, which was difficult to do and after 9 years my partner and best friend he stole my entire business. You know after communism people had it difficult in Czech since although it is about a Catch 22 such as yes we have the freedom now, yet nobody under the communistic regime had money. Only the officers under the communistic regime had money and the rest of the normal residents had one potato and butter. That is it. So, who ends up opening businesses after the communism disappears? The prominent communists!" is the conversation starter we had at the "VERY Intellectual Cafe Cultural Center," of Prague.    Cafe Kampus at Naprstkova 272
    "Prague has traditionally been known as a Intellectual center, where the writers and musicians and directors, the artists and poets come to discuss the world of their visions. The University is here in the section and we are always full of students from around the world wanting to tell and learn views of global interest. They come to meet people of interest and they come to drink cheap beer, 45 Pilzen and 37 Kozel for 1/2 liters, and eat cheap daily specials of food that is typical Czech."

"Downstairs it is very comfortable and casual and fun. A place to have a couple of beers and catch up with friends. The front entrance is newly designed from me and I am adding everyday. I have many ideas and I have only been opened about 1 month. My dad trusts me completely and if I say I want the bar stool chairs to be wooden and colorful he says that is alright. I want to redesign the logo so that it is much bigger and the Beer Story letters will be outside on the entire window. It is designed to be white and clean looking. You say that it looks yuppish, yet that is the first time I heard that word. Yet, I guess it is. A upscale only Czech beer story pub. Maybe since everybody that drinks beer has a story to tell,'' he says enthusiastically. ''I am only 22, yet my friends are all a little bit older. I was always working as a bartender and waiter and working at my dad's restaurant and I learned graphic design and public relations and that is something I shall love doing for both my father's restaurant, BellaVista and my own.''Image may contain: drink

   "Alright, my story is that at the age of 13 I started working in my father's pretty famous restaurant named Bella Vista, which is located on the way to the beer monastery that you went to on the scooters,"says Jan, who's father is named Jan, too. I said I would call him  Jan Jr. from now on. "Okay, "he laughs. "It is interesting since I grew up on great wines and food at my father's gastronomic restaurant and here it is only beers. I want to make my little baby restaurant and project the best that I can. I plan on adding new beers from around Czech Republic every week, if I can. Right now I have only 32 and I hope in a couple of months, after doing the research and visiting the microbreweries that I have at least 50."

"We are one of only a couple of craft beer pubs, yet besides the Prague Beer Museum Pub, we are the only one that is totally focused on the Czech Craft Beer Market. I have a couple of fruit beers that are coming that I am excited about too. You should try the blueberry one," he says and of course I do. LOVED IT.Ä°lgili resim
"The front entrance is light and open to bring people in. I wanted it to be a little funky and inviting so you can come up and order from the tap draft, of which we have a total of 10 beers on draft, and about 22 in the bottles. People see inside with the big open windows and it looks friendly and fun and they come in. The Beer Story name itself is friendly. As you said, everybody feels comfortable with that name since everybody loves to hear and tell stories. It is a conversational name and a unintimidating name. You can come here to taste Czech beers and eat Czech food."pipa beer story ile ilgili görsel sonucu
   "Before last month, we had beers from everywhere in the world, yet as of December, I am focusing only on the Czech beers and the Czech culture and food. That is why people come to Prague, because it is is Czech. I want to show them the best that I can and I want them to have a good time and come back to Prague because of my BeerStory!"

with a beautiful casual Garden, "Thanks to that horrible tree...it keeps dropping leaves on the guests!" jokes Mr. Kalina as he asks if I would love to sit in the Garden and have dinner last night. O My Gosh, having lamb tartar and caramelized chocolate is unbelievable...trust me you can not make this at home. 
                                                                                        Mr. Mirek Kalina 
             "we wanted to make a restaurant about cuisine, the cooking and the wine...a very sensitive menu."

   And a simple question, Why do you love cooking?  He laughs, "Because it is creative...it is something that I love. and 2nd it is hospitality and I love to work for the people. My team is fine. It takes a long time to find the right cooking team and I have it now. I want only great chefs around me. One of the people in the kitchen is the sous chef at V Zatisi , and they have great training. I think for us we have established a name in Prague and the people want to come and have dinner here." 
     "I do teach cooking classes at the Academy and the tourists can take my classes, yet they are in Czech language. If I have a group of Americans I can attempt the english language if I must." he says laughing and I say that his english is very good actually! 
     "I love to keep my meals simple with only 3 to 4 ingredients and the reason is that I want each guest to taste the food. To experience the feeling of it.The wine is the 5th element of the meal." he says. "And I am quite conservative in my cooking. We don't make fusses and we don't make fusion and we don't make crazy combinations in the flavors. It is simple."

 "Hmm, I it is quite normal on google or traveling in  your mind to find new recipes. That is the way that I do it.I have worked at 1 star or 3 star's Michelin and I learn at each, yet the 3 star's tend to be too formal for me honestly. I want my guests to have fun in my restaurant with the star quality food from the kitchen. You know if you are dressed in shorts and the shorts presentable, you can come and eat at  my restaurant. You don't have to have dinner jackets. And the same is with my food. I cook what I like. I would say mine is authentic Czech recipes with a very modern presentation." he says as he starts to himself serve my tea and tell me of how it must be at a 90` temperature and not to sit too long. I ask if when I eat at his restaurant(since he invited me every other sentence!) can he personally come from the kitchen and tell me about the food that I am eating! 
  Mr. Mirek Kalina laughs, a lot! "Yes I do that all the time. I come from the kitchen and talk to my guests because that is fun. A low price, medium, and the expensive. That is the way to do it. " he says.   "It is the guest's choice. And it creates a lovely aura around you." 
   The food is delectable and the wine simple.
   Mr. Kalina is a warm person and a awesome chef, hence his restaurants of which are now located in 2 places and used to be on Dlouha Street and in the cool Pachtuv Palace, are revered around the world and as usual at least one of these is Michelin.  "My new one on Kampo is only 3 months now, you need to give us a little time to have Michelin," he says laughing today as he fits me into a window of 8 minutes during his enourmously busy New Year's Eve Day...complete with lunch guests that fill the lovely new space and as I see the plates whiz by, see that they are just as beautifully prepared as the rest of his restaurants!

                                                                PRAGUE RIDE  in Prague 
O MY GOSH TONS OF FUN...went up to a huge park near the Monastery which has beer of course, the Monks love the beer, and a beautiful ride in nature. Saw a cool fisherman in the water fishing too...the scooters take about 15 minutes to feel comfortable turning and riding which is alright since you kind of mosey around the city near the clock tower and jewish quarter before you head down to the riverboats and go a little faster. 
  Sergei says "I have designed the tour around the city based on my many years of doing the tours of segways and I made my tours just a little bit more than renting the scooters on your own.  That way they can also learn about the history of the city of Prague"  And you might be lucky to have Sergei as your guide since he, as the owner, buys you a beer!"
 Two girls from England and I were riding the EScooters the total of 3 hours around the city and hills of Prague, all the way up to Castle Prague. It is supposed to only take 2 hours, yet we ended up instead of 2, doing 3.
     "Yes, the Grand Royal Private Tour is only 2 hours, yet I heard you girls do about 3 hours on tour, which is why my guide is very late." Says the Scooter Team as we zoom our scooters into their little parking spaces. We became very good at riding the EScooters and I have to say that it is the funnest tour that I have ever done.RIGHT NEXT TO FAT CAT BREWERY 
Sergei is the owner of the cool E-Bikes and E-Scooters company named Prague Ride which is located behind the FAT CAT BREWERY. That is convenient of course, yet if you take the Tours of Prague Ride you can buy a beer at the famous Monastery Strahov, yet only a small beer to be safe, yet when you come back you can celebrate your great EScooter Tour of Prague at Fat CAT. 
1 hr, 1 and 1/2, 2hr., 3hr which is only 69euros. 
The entire 3 hours! The biggest and longest tour lets you enjoy the city and its treasures longer, on the very safe and balanced fat tire e scooters, and learn so much more about the history of the city than doing it alone!
 "The scooters are very balanced and a child of 10 years or more is the age we recommend to ride the scooters alone. A family brought their 7 year old and it is alright. Legally he can ride the scooter alone since it is akin to the bicycle, yet I only feel comfortable if the family says that the child can ride the scooter alone," says Sergei. "We have a turbo button on the scooters and if you push the red button, the scooters go real fast. In the open park and nature you can take the scooter fast and have fun."  By the way our guide insisted on us doing turbo and going fast. 
            He wanted us to experience the differences in the scooters.http://pragueride.com/tour/grand-royal-tour/

"Everybody loves my barbers and they are always trying to cut my hair, yet I use professional makeup artists and barbers on the television and cinema and I have to let the TV makeup artists do it!" 
         Restaurant Le Cinque Corone and Pizzeria Pulcinella are owned by two Naple's brothers and run by the director named Paolo, who is a totally cool Albert Sordi type of guy, all distinguished and nice although rather busy, yet that is alright since that is essential to a very good yummy restaurant. Paolo is from the Northern section of Italy, yet is happy to help the South boys! 
The food is all from South Italy and although both of the restaurants are side by side, with fancy hotels that Matt Damon stays at when he is in Prague, or Kurt Russel, for example, or the hostel that is right smack in the middle of the alley of Pizzeria Pulcinella(hey a added plus...when you are hungry at 22.00 pm!), they are a little tiny bit different. "We have the same cooks, the same kitchen and the same pizzeria, yet a little bit different. We, as people run back and forth to both!" laughs Paolo as he gives me like 6 minutes then runs away! 
     Marco, pictured below; however, stays and gives us the BEST PIZZA EVER! 
Right now, since I have eaten at least 5,000 pizzas since starting my cultural journey 10 years, (I know I counted along with my capo friend David who owns Bar Italia in Dublin who has eaten at least 10,000), I am wanting some Italian wine...better run to the little Italy here before I drink it all...  https://www.facebook.com/Ristorante-Le-Cinque.../

    Marco and Angelo are brothers.
Usually when you start a story in Ireland it is with, "two men walked into a bar..." in Germany, "two liters of beer we drank within the first 5 minutes of Okterfest", and in Italy, "two of my family..." they  are real Italian brothers from Naples and they are the nicest friendliest real people you can find. That is the way with Italians. They are smart, and know when tourists love their food, their culture and when they appreciate both. 
    The restaurant is located about 100 meters from the Prague Clock Tower Piazza...down the little alley at:                           Venerdì 31 Agosto, 
Okay, Pizza Pasta and that lovely Italian wine...when you are done traipsing around Prague on foot or on the cool E-Scooter near the FAT CAT BREWERY, down the next little alley near Hotel U Prince you shall find the best Italian food ever in Prague from Italy at Le Cinque Corone and  Pizzeria Pulcinella.

  "Everybody may have different reasons for eating Vegan, mine is a very personal reason and it is simply I love animals and want the planet to have many of these in the future for my children. The Vegan concept is delicious "Forky's" is for eating healthy and plant grown food. All of the items on the menu are 100 percent Vegan and we say Delicious!" says Jan. "I started the restaurant in Bruno with Vidlicka , and most of the recipes are mine since I am a cook and Vidlicka is not. However; he came up with the idea and I do the recipes. Me and Viktoria cook here and at home we cook together. It, for me, is a life choice." 
     Viktoria is a sweet girl, shy and quiet and she happens to love Vegan food, especially her Vegan food, "Me and my boyfriend worked for the original Forky's in Bruno and we loved the owner, who's name in Czech literally translates to Fork, which is the reason he named his concept restaurant, of which he has 3, Forky's." says Viktoria as she tells me about the real health benefits of eating Vegan. That is important to her. On the wall of fame is Vegans, including Prague's Franz Kafka 1883 to 1924, Brad Pitt and Jonny Depp both born in 1963, James Cameron, the famous director and I guess you must come to the Forky's and see yourself! 
"You should try the healthy Vegan burger or the Cheeseburger and the street food Vegan which is fattening, yet Vegan, or the Asian inspired Vegan, of which we have 3 or the healthy superbowls." says Viktoria.

"We have all kinds of chocolate, and I guess the most beneficial and healthy would be the pure dark chocolate which has the most antioxidants in it," says Maria, "I have been the first marketing manager of the Chocotopia the last 9 months." she says. "It is so much to learn and now I can say that I am a chocolate afficionado!" When I ask her if she has only learned about chocolate since working here. "Yes that is the reason I know so much. We do have the gelatos which are great and if a child has a piece of chocolate per day I don't think there is anything wrong with that. You of course don't give chocolate in huge amounts to adults or children, yet if you aren't allergic to chocolate you can have a little everyday." she says when I ask just how healthy is eating chocolate. "It is a sweet. It is chocolate. It is for dessert." she says truthfully. "It isn't healthy!"
If your little boy is a carpenter in training and wants to play with tools like a big boy he can            eat the chocolate that are shaped that way!       Now his dream of making himself             Willy Wonka in real life is coming true, "I bought the Grevin Wax museum opposite the alley and we are already collaborating with tickets and in October we shall move the chocolate museum to the Grevin and merge the two. The store shall still be here." he says. When I ask if he is going to have famous chocolatiers wax figured he laughs, "We could make a Willy Wonka figure, yet we would have to make a wax figure asking Johnny Depp since the movie is copyrighted and they would have to let us use the Willy Wonka figure. Yet we could use the actors." he says laughing. Or Henk and team could be figures!
Maria says, "Henk is opening Provincie on the way from Prague if you drive to Bruno so it should be one of the largest factories of chocolate in the world where children can come and see how they make the Candy." Cool I say just the way the American children everyday love to go to Hershey chocolates in Pennsylvania! Related image
Henk Mestdagh is like Willy Wonka, literally.      He has a chocolate plantation in Yucatan Penisula in Mexico where he has converted a entire village and helped about 65 locals help farm the cocoa planation and that is where they harvest the cocoa, he has a Chocolate Utopia in Brussels and Belgium seaside, Paris, and here in Prague where he has the store and  the museum. "I love chocolate, the Aztec culture and the Mayan culture and wanted to introduce the real chocolate and it's origins to the world." he says the first time I met him about 3 to 4 years now.       (the chocolate classes)
                           The cool Grevin Museum is now combined with the Chocolate Museum of Prague! 
                                         Have fun bring the children and see if you can find your favorite star! 
                                                                  PRAGUE BAKESHOP
       I personally love "the minions," that they make and as you can see that somebody loves Batman and Robin...

     and has a great sense of humor thanks to the owner Martin, who is DELIGHTFUL. I love him and he is one friend at Prague I always love to chat with. "Yes and now my wife who has opened her little Bakeshop Little Bakery on the opposite side of the Charles Bridge has made me eat and drink healthier the last couple of years. She does the smoothies of fruits and vegatables and you can find a lot of vegan in her shop. I don't know if vegan is healthy for you since people have been eating sweets and bread many years, yet they love it." says Martin.

    OK! How does Martin stay in such great shape? "I do eat the food, I love my wife's strudel apple recipe, which, again, is healthier than the traditional Czech with natural ingredients. I eat the smoothies, and I try to stay in shape. The bakeshop is very busy and that helps too." 
"You know my wife and I have two Air B&B's and you can add these too, if people want to come and stay at Prague they know that they stay with nice people." he says and that is totally true. Where is the wife now? Martin laughs, "She is on her way to Austria since she is breeding our cat. It is a special kind of cat and has been with a stud cat,-I am not joking," he interrupts my story when I start laughing. "We wanted a special cat and found one in Austria and she drove to Austria today to pick up the cat." 
                    Bakeshop Sandwich
  "The cool new item is the eggs. American students love eggs, poached, scrambled, sunny side up, and my one guest everyday loves the white egg omelettes only. Every morning I do the eggs for my students here at the Big Bakeshop. Hope it continues!" he says. Image result for prague bake shop
Bakeshop : Croissanty, Mufiny, Cookies sušenky
The little bakery, the wife of Martin at the big bakeshop, is located at u luzickeho seminare 22, right opposite the Charles Bridge. Here his wife has fresh bakery items with veggies and fruit smoothies and Martin says, "She is much more into healthy alternatives than me and she is a very good baker. She bakes the vegan items to have in my big bakeshop. Eventually when the kids are grown I would love to be a professional chef since I love to cook."

 The first apartment is actually where Martin and his family lived many years and included parking and a gorgeous garden terrace, while it is a little out of the center of Prague, it is great if you have a car and want to enjoy the sites of the city, yet relax in the quiet beauty of Prague at night...

    Kapurthala ,is where the two brothers come from in the lovely country of India. "The name is difficult to pronounce and when me and my brother opened the restaurant we wanted people to remember the name. We thought to name it "K" and the two brothers and that would make people ask Okay what does the name "K" stand for and is there really two brothers? And of course we say yes we are two and yet since my brother is always out front and I am in the kitchen as the chef they always kid him and say, Is there really another brother?" laughs Mr. Nandwani, the very sweet owner of the top Restaurant."My younger brother, Sumit is the one who is always having his picture taken with the celebrities,(pictured Josh Hopkins & Bill)and yet I love the food. The presentation, the recipes and the teaching the other chefs how to cook the authentic way of my India region, that is a joy to me," says Ronny the older brother. "If you want to know about the history of the Royal Family's pictures you have to ask Sunny,(his name for his younger brother Sumit) since he bought all of the portraits and loves these."

     "The Royal Family had wives and mistresses, the woman pictured lying leisurely is the mistress of one of the Royal rulers," says one of the brothers.
     Two real brothers from the Dynasty Region of Kapurthala,India, where the Royal family's ancestors pictured on the walls actually own the beautiful restaurant, along with the mistresses! Související obrázek

The waiters always say, O we have Americans! And the other cultures are funny since the Russians order dessert first and a couple of beers perhaps! The Asians never know what to order and we take our time explaining the menu and the Spanish are the funniest! They take at least 5 minutes to ask about the Indian food.  They have no idea what to order!" he says. 
     "What I enjoy the most is the presentation of the highest authentic Indian food with the atmosphere of luxury to match." is his final answer of his perception of the most beautiful of all Indian restaurants I have ever seen.

"At times I have very rich clients, one in particular from America, who comes in and brings his own vegetables and after 9:30pm he has me prepare very special curries for him. They take such a long while to make that I ask him to please let me know when he is coming. However, if it is a special request, yes I can do that. The price is a little high to do that since it is my time that people pay the additional price. The dinner here to eat real authentic Indian food is about 650 czech including two glasses of wine."Hmm yum! 
   "The Royal Dynasty in that region of Kapurthala is in the northern section and we have the Great Grandfather and the Grandfather and the son and his daughter pictured, along with one of his mistresses, who is from Iran." says Sunny, the youngest of the two brothers. "Maharaja Japatjit Singh is the Grandson and his son is about 45, I guess. His son is the ruler in India's Kapurthala region." he jokes, "I wish I was Japatjit Singh when he was alive since he had 6 wives, the last one Czech, and many mistresses. He traveled everywhere around the world. He is the one is the Diamond Tiara Turban. I would have to sew mine on, yet his is a real diamond tiara. Perhaps he is handsome or perhaps he is so rich that women love him. His fifth wife was Anita Delgado (Prem Kaur) a Spanish flamenco dancer, who he built a rose pink palace that today standing ghost-like with peacocks strutting outside and it has 108 suite rooms. It is used for boys school today. It is fashioned after the palace of Versailles and Fountainebleau." These mysterious portraits combines with Ronny's exquiste and carefully prepared authentic Indian dishes make the trip to one of the most beautiful Indian restaurants in the world definitely worth it.    
                          Sad Man's Bistro and Bar has Great Cheeseburgers, Beer and the Mixologists know how to make
cool Cocktails: yet I must say the best reasons to come to Sad Man's is the owner, Steven, who is a great conversationalist who used to be the HEAD HONCHO AT PRAGUE'S HARDROCK CAFE 6 YEARS. "I got tired of the coporate bull there, honestly, and here I can relax and drink with my buddys all day and do my pin-up photography and help the bartenders make great drinks, actually have a chance to party with the tourists and sit with the guests and have one of my own cheeseburgers. It is my own place, it is me and I love it." he says.    Konviktska 7 
                    Image result for sad mans tongue bistro
   Steven (Bruno) says that the story and bar hasn't changed, "We've gotten new burgers and new burger names, which we do from month to month, yet the story is the same. I wanted a casual dive bar with Great food, and I didn't want the corporate world. Here it is. I met tons of restaurant owners in Prague who all come here after hours to unwind and have a great time. You should really come here at night and party with us til morning. It is real fun." he says.  
  "She is one of my waitresses and photograph's beautifully." Steven says.Image result for sad mans tongue bistro 
     I caught two of my favorite people today at the Sad Man's Tongue Restaurant and Pub, which in addition to having the best and biggest burgers in the city has great pinup photos adorning the walls, most of these courtesy of Steven, who owns the Restaurant. 

"My friends call me Bruno , that is why my professional photography is Bruno G, yet other people know me as Steven. And again, my grandfather's name is Bruno so I named my photography business Bruno G." says the VERY laid back owner of the totally cool, "neighborhood local restaurant and bar." 

     O Yes! And the second one is Jonathon who owns the Irish Guinness sports bar named O'Che's. "That is just a name, it has nothing to do with Cuba." says Jonathon when I ask him why he doesn't have Bruno photograph Cuban pinup girls to hang on O'Che's wall. "Cuba doesn't have pinup girls," quips Bruno and I say that is not true. They surely have pinups in Cuba? "It is only the name of O'Che's since it is akin to a Irish bar, you know they always name their bars, O'something." they disagree with me. In all honesty if you enter the Sad Man's Tongue Restaurant and Pub you must argue with these guys since they love to tell their unique view of life and have you tell yours. It is quite fun to argue with them and they always win trust me!            Konviktská 7    https://www.facebook.com/SadMansTongue/Výsledek obrázku pro sad mans tongue

       "And one of my waitresses and bartenders, too, they all photograph great, I guess it's me!"says Steven!

  It has a 1950s atmosphere which is accented with the 1950s burlesque and pinup wall photos. It is basically a great food place with nice drinks and on your birthday dinner is free. That is why I love it. I came here one night with 5 friends and the place was full so they sat us at a huge table and everybody scooted to each other and we fit. We had a great time and I met people from England, Russia, China, Australia, America and Germany that day! 
"Although only 20% of the menu is burgers, that is what we are most famous for. The tourists, the locals and the young people love the burgers." says Bruno, "And we are open til 6.00am with drinks served from midnight since the kitchen is only open til midnight. You can find Jonathon here many nights sleeping in the leopard room, which is where I met him." They start laughing, yet Jonathon says, "Actually that is very true. That is where I met him."Image result for sad mans tongue bistro
   GREAT Cheeseburgers and Hamburgers with 12 kinds of cheeses, great beers, live music, gorgeous girls(to guys) and the best conversations mingling with the guests that are already here eating and drinking...the best in Prague from the person who was the BIG BOSS at the HARD ROCK CAFE 6 years in a row before starting Sad Man's! 
    ...and the music? He has live bands on Saturdays and Fridays and cool music as you can imagine the rest of the days...great music, though, and we all love Johnny cash right?
                                         O'CHE'S Irish Czech Sports Bar
   Karaoke! At A Cuban Irish BAR! Yes starting on Mondays you can come and have a funny crazy time at the famous Live Music, Huge Sports and wonderful Whiskey and Guiness Pub. Try the Karaoke on Mondays and see who can make Che come alive! 
"You know the main difference between Steven's Sad Man Tongue and my place is basically and first of all it is a PUB. A sports Pub with live music. A Pub that has Pub food. It is for friends to come and grab a pizza while they watch Sports. It is a Pub that people come and they love to hear live music which we have every night and that is only when say the World Cup isn't playing. If the World Cup is playing we have the Sports games on the television. They love to eat pub food which is fish and chips, and yes I changed the fish and chips to real fish since I am from England and that is my request. I want the people that come here to have a great time. They are on vacation, you know, and the locals don't usually like the bars in the center, yet they have come to love my Irish beer Guinness and they love to talk to the tourists, too. Especially the ones that love sports. It is a Pub. I used to be in the financial sector for many years in London and I have finally found what I love to do. I do not miss London at all. I love Prague and I love my Pub," says Jonathon as we chat at the Sad Man's Tongue. 

                      "O yes and I do love to come here after midnight to see Steven!" he says.

"And in addition to that the fact is that people love the live music. It is much nicer to chill at 7.30pm with a live band than just sit and drink beer and talk. Music is nice and that is why I let people come here to sing. It gives each person a chance and these musicians are very good."

"I don't really have Czech food, maybe Ghoulash, since the tourists love it, yet we added pizza for the guests to eat while they drink the Guinness and watch the sports. It is a neighborhood bar, with a friendly feeling and I only added the best food to the menu and now the bar is starting to have a great reputation for Pub Food that is high quality instead of just beer and sports." says Jonathon. 
                                                    Yeah my 8 year friends the CITY BIKE TOURS OF PRAGUE   "Honestly, we do mostly tours. We are famous of that in the city of Prague and every tour is a English tour. Sometimes people from Germany or Netherlands ask for Dutch or ask if we do German tours in that language and we do now. Yet the reason people around the world always chose us is the English speaking guides. 
The people trust us since we are the number one bike company and first bike company to operate in Prague starting in 2001. We have 100 plus bikes for people if they would love to ride around the city with friends and or in one of the tours we have. The ones we have include:the beauty of the Prague city center on each side of the Vltava River, the Jewish Quarter, Old Town Square, lush Kampa Park, National Theater, and around the Castle and the Castle park. You can do a self-guided tour to the Karlstejn Castle, GPS and take rail connections back or explore the Prague Highlands all day which requires 24hr. notice to do that. We say do not take the umbrella bored tours in the city, walking everywhere is boring you must ride the bike it is much more adventurous and exciting" says Pavel and his guides!           Note: except for the 24hr notice you do not need reservations, just find the time of the tour, and walk on in. Have fun enjoying the city of Prague! 

   In Prague my very first Biking Sponsoring Company is City Bikes, located right near the Pralines store, which always tempts me in to buy a couple pralines and of course I need to bike off my fattening snacks...and the better way to have fun in the gorgeous city is biking...be careful if it rains, and have a lovely day.  https://www.facebook.com/citybike.prague

     http://www.citybike-prague.com/ The City Bikes is open everyday except November to end of March. However, if you have a big educational class coming to Prague of 40 and or over call City Bikes 24hr. notice and they can do a private tour just for the group! 
   The City Bike tours do tons of Dutch tours now since everybody in the world knows the Dutch love to ride bikes as much as the Prague natives love to drink beer, each does it best!...however, although the Dutch know how to ride the bikes along the Amsterdam canals, don't drink and drive if you're not dutch! 
                     Prague Special Tours by Ivan Galik has Beer Tours, Castle Tours, And my favorite Ghost Tours, amoung others, such as the Communist Bunkers and the Historical Tours. The guides sweet and fun and the tours worth it. You have a enjoyable evening and you learn about the ghosts of Prague, or you have a very long night with 3 hours of great beers to taste and you have a funny time. Both worth it. 
Výsledek obrázku pro mc gee ghost tours of pragueHad a lovely guide last night his name was Jarad or Jada I can't figure out his pronuciation and when he spelled it nope still didn't get it sorry. We had fun and the guide is very funny and informative from the stories of ghosts in Prague that almost always have a beautiful woman involved in it! Aaa let's just say that the Prague men of the 13th centuries didn't play around...I can let you take the tours to understand that! O and a funny henchman follows you around and scares you! The henchman was so convincing that the police came to ask him what he was doing with a AX! and a Head chopped off standing on the sidewalk! SERIOUSLY! The guide said, "um, I hope he is okay," as we walked away.Výsledek obrázku pro prague special toursMeet great friends on the beer tour, "We always lose a couple of people on the ghost tours...Hey it is in the job description, not my problem." says Jarad as he wanders around the city.

"The Clay monster that guards the temple is supposedly in love with a beautiful girl and as legend has it, threw himself into the river to find her. However, that is a bad idea since he was made of clay and well, you know what happens when clay meets water!" jokes the guide. 
                                     He jokes a lot! 
"If you wander down the dark alleys near the Jewish Cemetary at midnight you might be approached by two ghosts from the cemetary that ask you to play cards with them. My advice? Don't," says Jarad, "Unless you want to die!"
                                 Okay Jarad thanks for the advice...now...who wants to play cards?

"The people love the Buddha Bar at Prague, which has the same cuisine as the one in Paris, that you said you have been too; however, here it is a additional aspect of the Shi-Sha , which the community of Prague seem to love. I, myself, love the fact that the guests can eat downstairs in fine dining and later they don't have to leave the restaurant to have a club atmosphere. They can come upstairs and enjoy our resident DJ and have some great cocktails, smoke shi-sha, dance around the tables and have a nice night out. We're open til around 3.00am on the weekends and 2.00am on the weekdays.Risultati immagini per buddha bar prague In addition we have samurai, belly dancers, dancing lessons and sabrage which is the ability to open champagne with different materials which the guests love.
