Canadian Road Trip – Montreal

July 1st, 2010 | Activities, Culture, Escapes, Food, Uncategorized

After a night of camping midway between Quebec City and Montreal, we hit the road with our sights set on our room at the W in Montreal. We were ready to see what the city had to offer, but didn’t really know what to expect, despite having a Frommer’s. Basically we wanted to do some [...]

Canadian Road Trip – Quebec City

June 29th, 2010 | Culture, Escapes, Food

After about 24 hours of driving/camping/gorging, we made it to our first of two cities to check out: Quebec City. This city is one of the most beautiful I’ve ever seen. Maybe Florence challenges it. The center of the city is elevated and built behind a wall. It’s the only city in North America with [...]

Canadian Roadtrip – On the Road

June 27th, 2010 | Activities, Culture, Escapes, Food

Last month Audrey and I took a much needed vacation. We’ve been trying to go to as many places in and around the northeast as we can and the next on our list was Canada! I’ve wanted to drive to Montreal and Quebec City since we first moved here. I’d heard so much about Quebec [...]

New Orleans 2010 – Part 4

January 20th, 2010 | Activities, Culture, Escapes, Food

On our last morning, we decided to head to the place with the frozen fountain from the first night which offered a solid cajun brunch buffet! We were pretty wiped out at this point with so much walking, eating and drinking, so we took it fairly easy… The aforementioned brunch The fountain was even more [...]

New Orleans 2010 – Part 3

January 19th, 2010 | Activities, Culture, Escapes, Food

The morning was rough after the cocktail tour and run in with absinthe. The only cure was to be brunch and a bloody mary it was decided. Off we went to Brennan’s, which I think is famous for inventing Banana’s Foster, but I might not be totally correct on that. Audrey outside and prepped for [...]

New Orleans 2010 – Part 1

January 17th, 2010 | Culture, Escapes, Food, Weather

Last year Audrey and I decided we needed to go to a warm place every winter that we’re on the east coast. Last year it was Aruba, this year I didn’t want to miss a ton of work, so we decided to keep it domestic and chose New Orleans. Neither of us had been and [...]

Momofuku Fried Chicken

October 25th, 2009 | Activities, Culture, Food

So a few weeks ago I wrote about the awesome experience of the Noodle Bar and mentioned the jealousy of the nearby table and their fried chicken dinner. Well, thanks to a very good friend who battled the stupid online reservation system, I was able to eat the chicken! Here are the stats: 2 chickens. [...]

Momofuku Noodle Bar

September 10th, 2009 | Culture, Food

Momofuku is probably the “hottest” restaurant brand in NYC to my knowledge.  David Chang is the man who created this new food empire and is a pretty interesting dude.  So I had my sights set on getting a bowl at his Noodle Bar for a long time! The Momofuku Noodle Bar is pretty unassuming in [...]

In-N-Out Impostor: Petey’s

August 10th, 2009 | Food

We’d heard of a place that people said had stole much of what we hold dear from In-N-Out. The place is called Petey’s and it is actually located only a short walk from our apartment. Since Audrey and I are going to southern Cal in a couple of days, this seemed like a good time [...]

Katz’s Delicatessen

August 9th, 2009 | Culture, Food

Audrey and I got the chance to swing by a legendary NYC eatery the other night: Katz’s Delicatessen. This place is probably on par with Carnegie Deli as far as the iconic New York restaurants are concerned, so while definitely excited, our past Carnegie Deli experiences kept us from getting too enthused. The ordering system [...]

This is going to be where the search and other helpful things go. Patience baldies!
