Have you heard of DeviantART?

Think of it as the "Myspace" for Artists. DeviantART has over 13 million registered members and attracts 35 million unique visitors per month. As a community destination, deviantART is my personal fave....the site allows emerging and established artists to display, promote, and share their works within a peer community dedicated to the arts. You may wonder why DeviantART is so popular.... I'm sure it's due to the fact that the site receives over 100,000 daily uploads of original art works ranging from traditional media, such as painting, drawing and sculpture to poetry, short stories, pixel art, films, anime, photography, digital artwork, etc. etc. etc. I view DeviantART as the "open door policy" to the world of Art, and I LOVE it! I have never been negatively criticized for any of my own work I've posted a matter of fact, this community  is very encouraging to everyone willing to share their passions to the rest of us. It is for this reason (among many others) that I have decided to share the site with you. If you are an artist or just like to admire the arts from afar, then you NEED to check out!

Attention Fans of Liquor

Yes, I said Liquor...If you are anything like me, then you probably find yourself at various bars or restaurants wanting to try something different than your average "Vodka Tonic". I know I've told the bartender, "Make me something different", and sometimes it's a hit...sometimes it's not (which makes paying $10 a cocktail less enjoyable).
Today I somehow stumbled upon a site called not only tells you about any kind of liquor imaginable, but also informs you of the newest drink trends as well as yummy featured cocktail recipes.
Since I am an avid Tequila drinker, I decided to type in "Tequila" to the search bar and if you click on the word "Tequila", you will see exactly what came up....heaven! 
Wait...I'm not done. My favorite part to this whole site is the "The Editor's Deal:San Francisco" (seeing as how I reside in San Francisco). Who knew you could actually find coupons on food AND drinks for literally HALF PRICE! The deal they have right now is "$15 for $30 of Food and Drinks at 5A5 Steak Lounge", and the deal changes every day, so if you're wanting to try new places to eat and taste that new refreshing cocktail, then this is the site to frequent. They even have an email list to keep you posted on the newest deals. 
Ahh, technology and liquor...two things I adore.

Well, that's it for my newest "find"....stay tuned as I am on the prowl to expose more fun and exciting sites for you to try. 
Till next time...Here's a Toast to YOU!
