Can you believe it's Friday already? Time for another round of "Guess Where?" Do you know where these seaside ruins are located? Log in and leave your guesses below. Check back on Monday for the answer.

UPDATE 8/22/11: Everyone guessed correctly that these are the ruins of San Francisco's Sutro Baths. Looks like we'll need to make this harder this week.

Last Minute Travel: Curaçao North Sea Jazz Festival

201107-b-curacao-1jpg

You probably mapped out your Labor Day weekend months ago. Wait. What? You're still looking for something to do? If you're down for a little last-minute travel, I highly recommend going to the second annual Curaçao North Sea Jazz Festival in Piscadera Bay from September 2-3. With headliners like Sting, Stevie Wonder, Earth Wind and Fire, and the Bradford Marsalis Quartet, it should be an amazing weekend on this beautiful island. (Located well outside of the hurricane belt, might I add?) Tickets are $185 and are still available at www.curacaonorthseajazz.com.

Guess Where? Hotel Lobby

201103-b-guess-62jpg

This week, we sent one of our writers to explore NYC and we asked our Facebook and Twitter followers to tell her where to go. Can you guess where she is in this photo? She writes, "Daylight flickers in the lobby. . . filtered not just through a skylight but through the second floor swimming pool. Funny to look up and see the undersides of feet paddling around." What do you think?

Log in and leave your guesses below and check back on Monday for the answer.

UPDATE 8/08/11: Congrats to denise.lao and kittiekatkixazz! You both were right. This is the lobby of the Dream Downtown on the edge of New York's Meatpacking District.

Guess Where? Coastal Town

201103-b-guess-58jpg

As a heat wave is melting New York, I'm day-dreaming of this gorgeous coastal town where the average summer high hovers just below 70. Can you guess where this is?

Log in and leave your guesses below and check back on Monday for the answer.

UPDATE 7/25/11: We stumped you this time! Some people guessed Monterey on our Facebook page. They were close, but not quite right. This is Carmel Bay in California. If you look closely, you can see the golf course at Pebble Beach in the upper left corner.

Guess Where? Stone Building

Log in and leave your guesses below and check back on Monday for the answer.

UPDATE 7/19/11: All three of the guesses were right, but CasseseNY got it first. Congrats! This is Blue Hill at Stone Barns in Pocantico Hills just north of New York City.

Southern Road Trip Recipe: Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

2011-b-piejpg

15,000 miles, 70 classic Southern restaurants, and one 1959 Cadillac. Sounds like the perfect summer road trip to me. Last summer, Lt. Commander Morgan Murphy, a former Southern Living travel editor, was lucky enough to do just that, visiting his favorite restaurants and uncovering 150 recipes from their menus. The result, Southern Living Off the Eaten Path, is one part travel guide and one part cookbook, perfect for planning your next Southern road trip or for when you can’t travel farther than your kitchen. After scouring the recipes, I recently baked the Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie recipe from the Ham Shoppe in Valle Crucis, NC. It is the perfect combination of sweet and tart and would make an awesome picnic dessert. For the recipe, click through!
