Nostalgia - Help remembering Jacobson's coffee brand?

Hey, cool! Thanks, I will give it a try. It doesn't hurt to ask.

Nostalgia - Help remembering Jacobson's coffee brand?

Yes, sadly. We have access to so many wonderful things now, and I'm glad for that, but there's so much and things change so quickly anymore nothing much has a chance to become fond and familiar. And it seems like everything that WAS fond and familiar for so long is a thing of the past. I know it's not strictly true, of course, but I get wistful and nostalgic.

Ah, I had the sinking feeling I was after something so completely obscure no one would remember, but I thank you all so much for putting your heads together for me and giving it a shot. :)

Nostalgia - Help remembering Jacobson's coffee brand?

I am haunted by the memory of hazelnut coffee my grandparents used to bring when they came to visit. This would have been in the late 80's - early to mid 90's. It came from Jacobson's department store and it was DIVINE. This would have specifically been the Jacobson's in Jackson, MI. I don't know if that is important or not. It was purchased whole bean, the bag-it-yourself way from bulk bins. Does anyone have any recollection what I might be thinking of? What I'd really like to know is what coffee was it that they carried? I'm hoping there might be a chance that the coffee company, whatever it was is still in business even though I know Jacobson's sadly is not.

Any help in sleuthing this out would be appreciated. My grandparents, unfortunately, are not around for me to ask anymore. We never think of all the things we'd like to ask before the chance is gone.

Recs requested - great atmosphere in Brevard?

Hi!

I'm trying to come up with someplace really cool I can take my husband for dinner this weekend for his birthday. It'd be really great to find a place with a cozy, kinda romantic atmosphere. I'm not set on any one kind of food (we like all types), and the place doesn't have to be fancy - in fact almost better if it isn't TOO fancy. It could even be a dive if it were kinda funky and cozy in the right way.

Would like to stay around the $20 a plate (or under) range, but COULD go higher if it was really worth it. If all else fails I'll probably take him to Ashley's but I was hoping for new alternative ideas to choose from.

Thanks so much!

Recommendations - US1 from Brevard to Dade?

Awesome! Thanks so much!

Keep 'em comin' please, guys! I'm starting to jot them down on a little list - we're planning to take our time on the way up and coming back and we're gonna have so much fun deciding what to try :)

I haven't had much luck in the time I've had trying to research places out on my own, and it's alright to just wing it but there's just so much less chance of hitting on something really good that way.

Recommendations - US1 from Brevard to Dade?

My husband and I are going from Brevard (where we live) down Hollywood to the Hard Rock for a concert. We are leaving the day after tomorrow so we really don't have a lot of time to research and plan, but we would very much like to get the most out of our trip and would LOOOVE to find some interesting places to stop along the way.

We're thinking we'll probably take US 1 at least most of the way (unless someone knows a more interesting route?)......

Does anyone have recommendations for any cool little places along the way? We don't mind taking a detour or two if it's worth our while...... we're all into cool little Mom & Pop places, diners, hole-in -the-wall type stuff.......? Or maybe someone knows of an awesome ice cream or hot dog stand? Any campy, off-beat little things to see would be great to know about too.

Thanks so much in advance for any advice!
