We  Toast Special People, Places and Opportunities

WE TASTE

Savvy Restaurants Hotels & Resorts explores the talents of restauranteurs, chefs and winemakers and bartenders and tells the back stories about what it takes to run a successful hospitality business.  

WE TRAVEL

Beverly and Steve Smirnis discover and report on the specialty businesses, organizations and individuals that cater to people that appreciate the finest things in life, seek health, happiness and longevity, and put a high price on spending time with family and friends.

WE TELL SPECIAL STORIES

As published authors Beverly Smirnis and her co-author Catherine Team published the story of Anna from Atlanta–the true story of a strong black woman who cared for a severely handicapped child (also a true life character).   Anna’s interactions with the people in Marshalltown, Iowa, taught valuable life lessons to everyone she encountered throughout her life.  Anna is brought back to life in their portrayal of her in Anna From Atlanta, set during the 1930s, as Anna interacts with their fictional cast of characters.  Anna of Iowa continues the story and provides a slice of life about life in Iowa during the World War II time period.  We invite you to follow our new post series on principles taught by Anna that are timely and relevant in the world we find ourselves in today. 

Beverly & Steve Smirnis are collaborating on their next historic fiction project   (yet to be titled) –set in the mystical city of  Tulum in Mexico’s Riviera Maya.  While the action happens in the current time period, its cast of characters also includes immortal desendents from the last remaining Mayan civilization in Tulum.
