DINE and Destinations - - TRAVELS -

Jam not weighted down by the de­bris of con­ven­tional wis­dom. But that’s self-ev­i­dent. Why pub­lish two is­sues of DINE a year when one is­sue gave us lots of per­sonal sat­is­fac­tion? Be­cause. Com­pla­cency is the killer of cre­ativ­ity. The ex­cite­ment, the chal­lenge of tak­ing risks puts foie gras on my toast. For me, this is not a job—it is a pas­sion.

In this first is­sue of DINE Trav­els, pub­lisher Adam Wax­man takes us by the hand and leads us to Hell—a thrilling tour of Ja­pan’s hot springs in Kyushu and Nagano. On the other end of the spec­trum, he trav­els along the Blues High­way from Mem­phis to New Or­leans, ex­plor­ing the roots of the mu­sic and cui­sine we all love.

On the west coast, we visit Tofino, at mile one of the Trans Canada High­way, and marvel at the whales ca­vort­ing in the Pa­cific Ocean. Lux­ury in the wild is a high point at the Wick­anin­nish Inn. And the ar­ti­sanal cheese mak­ers and crafts­peo­ple who pop­u­late the week­end mar­ket on Salt Spring Is­land re­mind us of what the term “handmade” re­ally means. In Que­bec, health, well­be­ing and nat­u­ral food plans are ex­plored through its coun­try spa ho­tels.

And at the Bar­rett-jack­son, the world’s great­est clas­sic car auc­tion in Scotts­dale, Ari­zona, our love af­fair with the car is mea­sured in cold cash as col­lec­tors buy mul­ti­mil­lion-dol­lar au­to­mo­biles.

Come. Join us in ex­plor­ing the world.
