Illuminating Wine Bottle -




Newport, RI

The damage: $150 with a bottle of wine and tips. Some sections of it were still closed since Hurricane Sandy when we visited in 2013, but the part between Naragansett Street and Ruggles Street allows excellent views to Breakers and a few other properties on one side and the sea down below on the... The damage: $80 including 2 glasses of wine and tips. The damage: $100 with 2 glasses of wine plus tips. Audioguide system is shared across all mansions managed by the local Preservation Society, but at Breakers, the structure of the guide is most excellent and enlightening. The audioguide commentary expends a lot of time on Alva Vanderbilt, both illuminating and somewhat drawn-out. The Chinese Tea House, set by the shore on the mansion’s grounds, is a glorified snack bar, not to be confused with a place to get proper lunch. Things to See Newport is first and foremost about impressive monuments of the Gilded Age – the mansions of the rich and famous built in XIX-early XX centuries. Consider paying extra for the Servant Life tour , which is worth the fee and the need to reserve in advance: you get to see simpler things on this tour and you gain a different perspective on the workings of the mansion. Audioguide gets quite confusing at this mansion and provides way too much random trivia only loosely connected to the house. It is a nice few miles drive along the coast, but it does not have that many good stops to observe coastal scenery, and provides very little in terms of glimpses of the great houses. Lodging Canfield Restaurant and Inn ♥ is located close both to the central waterfront area as well as mansions. It is full of impressive period furniture and clatter, appearing somewhat most lived-in of all the major mansions. Chateau-sur-Mer ♥♥ gets less tourist traffic because it is a Victorian mansion (slightly pre-dating the Gilded Age sensibilities), darker and not as regal on the inside. Visiting many houses one after another makes them blend with each other eventually, so you would be well served to find a constrained measure of exploring these attractions. Places to Eat All places last visited in May 2013, party of two. Cliff Walk ♥♥♥ is a great path along the cliffs’ edge behind the mansions. There are also a couple of mansions that do not belong to the Society but can also be visited. If you only go and see one mansion, you probably have to pick it over any others. Respite from mansions can be found, among other places, in the lively commercial area that stretched from the Brick Marketplace through the wharves an onto Thames Street. It has best grounds of all mansions, even though it is not on the shore and does not have a sea view. The Preservation society has a bunch of lesser houses (open only during the “summer” season) which could be visited by the most insatiable. Marble House ♥♥ vies with the Breakers for being the most ostentatious, but is mostly luxurious on the first floor, not so much upstairs. Breakers ♥♥♥ is the most luxurious and opulent one. Conservatory at Vanderbilt Grace ♥♥ is one of two restaurants at a mid-size hotel, half a block from the main tourist thoroughfare. Canfield Restaurant and Inn ♥♥ – the atmospheric former casino has a large beautiful banquet room for formal eating. Good lunch menu, plus raw seafood bar. The rooms are fine, feel of age a little bit. the guided tour feels a bit rushed at times. Ocean Drive ♥, despite often considered the top attraction in Newport is actually somewhat underwhelming.

Punk color type demi permanent brands or transparent color sealants?

I've been using Jerome Russell's Punky Color - Red Wine and I love the color! Problem is, it's a semi permanent and it bleeds like crazy every time I wash my hair. I've washed my hair twice with Herbal Essences Color Me Happy and already the deep red I had has turned to a reddish Magenta or Fuchsia. I've tried using vinegar to seal the color when I did the cold rinse to get the extra dye out, but after the water was running clear and I use the vinegar, the color bled right when the vinegar hit it. So to get the color to last longer, I'm looking for a leave-in transparent color sealant or a brand of demi permanent color similar to Punky Color. I've looked at N'rage and Raw, but they don't have the red I'm looking for or the variety of colors like Punky Color. Also, I'm looking to buy just the bottle of color and not a whole bleach and color, one application kit like Splat. Any recommendation on a demi permanent punk color brand or a leave-in color sealant that might work with the brand I'm using now?


Splat is horrible, and no matter what color your going to get when it comes to those funky punky colors is going to fade unless you put a clear gloss on top of it, and even then it will fade, but red is the worse it will fade automatically, it's the hardest to get into the hair but fades the fastest...If you know someone who has a beauty license get Goldwell Illuminate it's the best or even Hot Topic colors work great stay away from Manic Panic, splat etc. and vinegar is going to strip the color out so don't use it....I do hair so if you have any other questions let me know.

How should I attach beer bottle caps to make a beruit (beer pong) table?

I'm trying to make a beruit table that is partially caps and partially bottles with highlighter fluid in them, and with black-lights on either side. Basically, the center of the table will be an american flag design made of bottle caps, and on either side of the hoist (width of the flag) there will be grey goose bottles filled with red, white (grayish), and blue highlighter fluid. On either side of the fly (length of the flag) there will be black-lights to illuminate the highlighter bottles. Around the perimeter of the table there will be 2 x 4s that will hold in place a piece of plexi-glass to cover the entire table. My questions are: What kind of material should I attach the bottle caps to? (I plan on using a high end plywood for the table itself, I'm just wondering if I should use like a corkboard or something else first), and should I use an epoxy solution to keep them in place? Also, because I'm using blacklights, should I paint the entire table black before putting the caps and bottles in place? Third and lastly, what is the best way to keep the bottles in place? I was thinking semi circles attached to the wood kind of like a wine rack, but I'm open to suggestions. I know this is alot so thank you so much for answering!!! Anyone who answers and would like to receive pictures of the final product please let me know I'd be more than happy to do so!!!


Paint the plywood and 2x4s first. Since there is a sheet of glass over the bottles, securing them and the caps is not much of an issue. Since you are painting the wood, skip the high end finished wood and just sand smooth a sheet of CDX plywood. A tube of clear silicone seems the likeliest solution. Thick enough to curve around the bottles and hold them. Thick enough to back fill the caps and hold them as well. You may want to glue down the glass as well, to keep the obnoxious drunks from making it an issue. I built a wine cork bar top based on this design. But instead of black lights, I used LED strip lights.

Painting the plywood background black is a good idea. It blends it all together. Think "hot glue gun" for holding caps and bottles in place. It sounds like a neat project. Good luck.

This review is from: Wine Enthusiast Electric Blue Push-Button Corkscrew, Black (Kitchen) After a month, this opener has worked flawlessly on any type of cork. It is quiet, quick, and simple. The blue LED light in the charging base is a nice addition to our kitchen counter. It looks well-made but only time will tell how many bottles it will open. So far, so good. Only very minor complaint is might have been nice to have a foil cutter than can be removed and stored a little more easily. I usually use one I keep in the drawer next to the thing instead. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 18, 2010

    Fantastic Gizmo

    0 5/5 Puerto Painter (Peoria, IL USA) - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Wine Enthusiast Electric Blue Push-Button Corkscrew, Black (Kitchen) I received one of these for Father's Day this year (2010). I have used many types of corkscrews, including the Rabbit, and some that required a degree in engineering to figure out, but have never been happy with any of them. My default cork remover has actually been the dual-prong Ah-So device. I actually had an Ah-So for close to 40 years and it recently broke. The newer ones are not as sturdy and removing synthetics is a bit of a challenge, even with the better ones. When I think about it, the demise of my trustee 40-year Ah-So was probably the result of using it on synthetics.Anyway, The Wine Enthusiast Electric Blue Corkscrew is really a gem and makes opening any corked wine bottle a snap. It certainly will open at least 2 dozen bottles without recharging, and has an amazing amount of power. I was skeptical at first, but became so sold on it that I gave away three of these to family members as Christmas gifts. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 30, 2010

    Mine broke in a month

    I see other good reviews for this item and I did read them before I bought it, but mine never worked quite right and it broke in a month. It always made the worm go all the way through the bottom of the cork, causing floaters in the wine, and then after only about 5 uses, it finally jammed, broke off part of a cork inside the mechanism and was permanently ruined because the cork remnant was stuck in it, also ruining my last bottle of 2009 Domaines Des Braves Regnie cru Beaujolais!!!I thought at first I was doing something wrong and double-checked the instructions, but I was doing exactly what it said to do and the instructions weren't terribly detailed.So, that's the end of that. Very disappointing.Except to say, Amazon was Aces! They took it back and paid the shipping because it had broken, even though it broke about 3 days after the deadline for their free return shipping.And so because they were so cool about it, I have ordered the rabbit wine opener from... 2/5 Bunnymom - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
