    Arizona Biltmore...History and Drinks

    The Arizona Biltmore. A Waldorf Astoria Property.

    If you stay this year you will be treated to their in-room magazine which I have written two stories. The first one is about Frank Lloyd Wright and his 150 Birthday day and the second about the period drinks of prohibition and recipes for some famous drink served.

    Frank at 150

    Drinks of the Era 

    As you all know I love Frank Lloyd Wright Architecture. This past month we lost one of his buildings to demolition. I try to work hard to save what is left of all buildings of worth.

    As I am writing this, I just finished up a few days of work here in Detroit and decided to stay in a Wright home. It is the Eppstein Home, built in 1947. It is one of four that are next to each other here. It was supposed to be a large community, but only had 4 built.
