Glory Days Abroad: September 24

Just steps away from the Adriatic, along a row of what feels like hundreds of different hotels, burning brightly on a corner lot, the Hotel Admiral offers something else along with its comforts, food, drink and water views.

A gallery of paintings and sculptures in the lobby, individually decorated rooms and the floor to ceiling murals in the stairwells sets a different tone for these accommodation.

Rock On! This Week's Sound Bites...9/22/22

Yeah, I don't believe I have ever been there but you’d know better than me because you live in the area,” laughed blues great Joe Louis Walker as he discussed his upcoming appearance at The Beverly Blue Festival, "Ghetto-psychedelic guitar licks," his "Puppies" and much more. "Maybe they’re trying to get something going with the festival; more power to them."   

Glory Days Abroad: September 22

Thursday, 9:33am, breakfast buffet alone in the Cage Club, upstairs at the Hotel Admiral, a couple blocks from and in sight of the Adriatic Sea. The owner sneaks in to makes some jokes and hellos in Italian, which I confess, I don’t speak, but a few words here and there are recognizable, so I can sort of understand that this “breakfast room” with custom rainforest wallpaper, birdsongs mixed with Floyd and the Beatles on the speaker system, wrap around deck and windows, but also with a stage, baby grand piano and mic stands doubles as a music venue and somewhere in the pleasant hotelier’s jokes are something about me having to sing a few songs to pay for the lovely spread that I am slowly working on. Good morning, Rimini.
