There is a hot new place to dine in the U.K. and it’s probably the last place you’d expect people to go for a high end meal.
I’ve heard of various trendy and popular foods that people are willng to wait on long lines for. I’m thinking of more recent items like the incredible Ramen Burger, the Cronut (still haven’t tried a real one) and other things along those lines.
But what about popular or trendy places to dine? Bed restaurants, highly priced tasting menus, pop-up resaurants, dining in the dark, Medieval Times? (I’m not really serious about the last option.)
This coming Sunday the Super Bowl will be playing on probably the majority of televisions in America.
Last week I wrote about flights being added + prices rising for the big game.
With so many fans pouring into town, where does everybody stay? There are supposedly not enough hotel rooms to house these people for the week or so leading up to the Super Bowl. Continue reading
Over the summer I wrote a review of what I’d consider to be Possibly the best travel pants ever. The pants are by Clothing Arts and are called P^Cubed.
For those of you not familiar with these pants, P^Cubed are Pick-Pocket Proof Pants. (Find out more about them by reading by review at the link above.)
After writing my review, Clothing Arts were nice enough to offer me a pair of their pants to giveaway on my blog! The winner was very happy with his pants and let me know that he was deciding on what to order next. Continue reading
I came across a travel contest with a very nice prize while looking through Southwest The Magazine online.
In the contest one winner will win a trip for two to Scottsdale, Arizona which includes airfare, a three night hotel stay and many extras.
The main reason I’d love to win this prize is to take the included hot air balloon ride! Continue reading
Yesterday I wrote about a couple of very interesting newer features available through Hilton’s mobile app.
I wrote my post after receiving an e-mail from Hilton earlier in the day with the subject “Check out a new way to check in“. The next bit of info is what really caught my attention- “Only with us, now you can choose your room“. Continue reading

Along with the announcement that schools are already closed for tomorrow and drivers being advised to stay off of the streets if possible, Uber has a warning for us too. Continue reading
Club Carlson is probably my favorite hotel brand due to a bunch of reasons. From their diversity of brands, price points, solid customer service and great perks from their credit card, their hotels seem to be the ones we frequent most.
Kim and I (as well as many of you) have found tremendous value and saved lots of money staying at Club Carlson properties. (Again, that amazing credit card offering Bonus Award Nights- book 2+ nights and hour second night is free!)
Lets’s not forget about their generous promos… Continue reading
At the end of this week we’ll be leaving on our first trip of the new year so it was about time that I finally finished getting all of the details worked out.
It was also a good week for manufactured spend, something I haven’t done in quite some time. I loaded my Amex Target REDcard a couple of times in the past few days and boy was it a breeze! (I need to thank the people who helped me get a REDcard since it is not available in the NYC area. It’s definitely much appreciated.) Continue reading
