Weekend Roundup

 Welcome to The Weekend Roundup...hosted by Tom The Back Roads Traveler

My last rounds were coffee and beer. So it's time for some food and sleep!

1. Starts with "J"
2. A Favorite
3. JUNK chosen by Tom

Starts with "J"

JEROME Grand Hotel AZ

Overlooking the Verde Valley, the hotel is one of the highest buildings in the area. Five stories tall, the building is made out of concrete.
Originally built as the United Verde Hospital in the late 1920s, stories of supposed spirits lingering around the property were reported early on.
Back in this era the town's main attraction was its copper mining business, which would eventually come to a close in 1950. For years the town would wither away, only to come alive again in the 1970s.

JOY Toronto ON

JUNK  Yangshou China

Déjà Brew
A catchall for leftover beer, coffee and whatever catches my fancy!

A cup of JAVA in Bantry Ireland


  1. That hotel tho! Wow!

    And Bantry. Last time I was there we are at the Stuffed Olive. Fabulous place. Owned by 2 sisters. Outside, I connected with so many strangers due to a play I had going at the time. Great memories. Thanks Jackie! And PS great classical concerts at Bantry House.


  2. Jackie. L would never have dreamed a "junk" hotel even though I knew of junk boats. I think them being oriental, most times China.
    We had a Chinese hotel north of Houston for their emporer and high ups fortified for their safety in case their country got the worst end of a nuclear war. The building is still there but I'm not sure of its ownership. The change of friendly relationship has been dampened by our t r u m p. They sold a very large house on a large acreage to a church.

  3. Jackie YOu have the the best JUNK word in the title of your blog and found a lot of J cafes. Have a lovely weekend and stay safe.

  4. ...the Verde Valley sure doesn't look very verdant!
    ...JOY, another fabulous sign!
    ...a different take on JUNK!
    ...JAVA is universal.
    Thanks JACKIE for stopping by, take care.
