Got a trip coming up that you haven’t had time to plan?

Journy (gojourny.com) is an insider travel concierge that designs the trip of your dreams—dining and beyond. You work 1-on-1 with a destination expert who also snags you those elusive reservations and finds you local hole-in-the-wall spots. Instead of figuring out reviews, spreadsheets, and maps, you relax knowing you’ll discover the best there is to do in a place. You know, like Rome, Paris, and Tokyo.

Get two days FREE ($50 value) with code TABLEHOPPER at gojourny.com. If you book one paid day along with those two free days, Journy will also ship you three free bottles of fab wine made by their pal, a former Per Se sommelier. Cheers to that!

Don’t have any trips coming up but still think the service sounds sweet? You can purchase a gift card for the future and get the same perk (FREE wine): gojourny.com/gift. Hop to it, you have until 1/31/17 to snag this special offer.

Every Friday, our Friday Fairy pays a special visit to a few lucky folks in New York, delivering fresh-baked challah and a hand-painted card. On Friday February 3rd, she’s flying over the bay, spreading love with Taboon’s freshly baked loaves. The first five tablehopper readers who email us will win a visit from the fairy. Don’t forget to tell us where she can find you (include your full name, address, and cell phone number, please). And you have to be located in San Francisco, thanks.

The Friday Fairy is powered by the Jewish Food Society, a new New York-based organization dedicated to preserving and nurturing Jewish culinary heritage. We’re building an online archive of Jewish recipes and the stories behind them. We also host pop-ups and special dinners. Our website is coming soon, but in the meantime, we hope you’ll follow along on Instagram (@jewishfoodsociety).
