I came across this video on YouTube. The Square Grouper is one of the most popular places in Jupiter for people of all drinking ages. It has caught the attention of a few high profile celebrities. Alan Jackson has been known to give surprise concerts on occasion, he’s even recorded a video there. Kid Rock has also been known to frequent the bar as well. What makes this place so popular? Alcohol helps, but the view from here is the best in the area. Sit down, have a beer and enjoy the view of the Jupiter Inlet and drift away. You wont want to leave. It doesn’t get any better than this!

Great news! There’s a big push from legislatures and businesses to increase and extend the current homebuyer tax credit. A number of bills have been introduced into the legislature. Some of the tax expansions include increasing the homebuyer tax credit from the current $8,000 to $15,000, extend the tax credit time frame from the end of the year, 2009 through to mid 2010, opening up the tax credit to all homebuyers and providing a $3,000 credit to homebuyers who refinance.
Many questions begin to flood a homeowners mind when preparing to list their house for sale. Should I sod the lawn? What repairs will I need to make before I list my home? Should I paint the inside? All are important questions. Especially in our current market when homes are sitting for longer periods of time. However, pricing your home to sell is going to be the most important decision you can make. We’re in a tough market, but no matter what kind of market, price is always going to determine if and when your home will sell. Here’s a video from Bankrate.com to help you price your home to sell in a bad market.

Anyone that knows me, knows I have a passion for food. Although not a professional by any means, I love to cook. In fact, I like everything about food. I enjoy cooking classes and love to experiment in the kitchen (thankfully, my husband and children are quite forgiving!). My bookshelves are filled with cooking magazines, books and recipes. With that said, it is safe to say that dining out is undoubtedly something I thoroughly enjoy.
So, when a sister agent told me about the Marble Slab Creamery, I had no problem making the drive to the Shoppes at Midtown in Palm Beach Gardens for an ice cream treat. Midtown is such a great place to be. We have done quite a bit of business there and continue to see it as a great place to live and/or invest. The local retail shops, eateries and restaurants attract the business professionals during the day and the trendy, hip crowd in the evening.
You’ll find the Marble Slab Creamery next to Pizza Fusion. I have to admit, I had never heard of it before. I’ve been to Coldstone Creamery and without a doubt, I was hooked at first bite. But, I have to say that after my visit, The Marble Slab has become my number one choice. I met the owner, Harsha and she definitely made the experience a great one. In talking, we found our favorite ice cream to be the strawberry shortcake sundae. I told her I was turned onto it at Coldstone Creamery. She diplomatically shook her head in agreement, smiled and explained that she can make it even better and asked if she could make the sundae the way she likes it. Not a problem, run with it!
And that she did. She added her special touch, packaged it a little differently, and added the best tasting ice cream (it tasted just like birthday cake…yummmeee!). It was a home run. Mostly, I appreciated Harsha’s sincere customer service and making the trip enjoyable. When you get a chance, stop in, say hello to Harsha and ask her to whip up a Strawberry Shortcake Sundae. We like hearing about everyone’s experience. Feel free to rate your experience by commenting below.
