Pick of the Week

I'm not much of one for selfies, but with the BT Shutter Button from Satechi I may just become a fan. With this small button, there's no need for a stick (banned from many places now) or an unusually long arm. I can activate my iPhone's camera to take photos or videos from up to 40 feet away. The battery lasts for about two years, so I can film away until 2017. $24.99 on Satechi and on

Atlanta Food and Wine Festival

It's a highlight of my year. Now in its fifth year, the Atlanta Food and Wine Festival is May 28-31, offering a selection of Learning Experiences from top chefs and artisans like "Moonshine & Medicine," "DIY Vodka Infusions," and "Bugs and Chocolate." I make sure to wear loose clothing as I eat and drink myself silly at the curated Tasting Tents, where up to 2,500 attend this outdoors culinary celebration, visiting the 100+ exhibitors cheerfully doling out spirits, wines and tasty treats. Tickets start at $100 for a one-day pass to the Tasting Tents.

Royal Caribbean's Zumba Cruise

Now you can dance away those cruise calories with Royal Caribbean's first Zumba cruise on the Independence of the Seas, sailing January 25, 2016. Zumba classes will be offered daily with 130 Zumba instructors from around the world. The five-day cruise leaves from Fort Lauderdale, with stops in Falmouth, Jamaica and a private island in Labadee, Haiti. Guests can also enjoy onboard activities like rock climbing, ice skating and the FlowRider, a surf simulator.
