OTG’s United Experience

I’m always on the lookout for fun things to do close to home. Even when we’re not traveling, it isn’t hard to find ways to keep busy exploring around New York City.

While I’m not a big fan of big, boring museums, I do love museums that focus on odd things as well as food.

I was pretty excited to come across news that Mr. Chocolate himself, Jacques Torres would soon be opening a chocolate museum in the city! Continue reading Jacques Torres Opening Chocolate Museum in NYC

The market was initially supposed to open back in 2015. The location was later announced and it’s supposed to be located at Pier 57 and Hudson River park. Since then other things have gone on and the market is now supposed to open in 2017! Continue reading Will the Anthony Bourdain Market Ever Open?

In New York City we’re lucky to be able to find food from pretty much every country in the world. (One man is even trying to eat authentic cuisine from every country in the world in NYC.)

Besides eating great food, it’s also fun at times to learn about specific kinds of food in museums. A French museum about wine was recently set to open.

I’ve also visited various food museums around the world like: Continue reading NYC Getting Ice Cream Museum for a Limited Time

In recent years food offerings at baseball stadiums have vastly improved.

Check out a post where MLB baseball stadiums are ranked by food. If you love baseball and food, then you’ll definitely want to read this book!

When I think of baseball, I think of grabbing a good burger at a stadium. My favorite team, the New York Mets has one of the top fast- casual burgers available behind the centerfield scoreboard- Shake Shack! Continue reading New York Mets Getting New Pizza Option from Danny Meyer

Woman Suing Tortas Frontera ORD for Margarita Injury

Tortas Frontera

Tortas Frontera by Rick Bayless (at O’Hare Airport in Chicago) is consistently rated as one of the top airport restaurants. Check out an article about US airports ranked by food.

While many know that Tortas Frontera serves delicious food, can it be dangerous to dine there? Probably not likely.

One woman is suing, due to an injury she claims to have received at one of the restaurant’s airport locations. Continue reading Woman Suing Tortas Frontera ORD for Margarita Injury

Target Opening In-Store Wine Bar

It seems like we can get just about anything we need at Target but the food and drink offerings are what I’d consider sub-par.

I’m pretty sure that every Target has a Starbucks but I am not a coffee drinkers. They usually have small cafe areas across from Starbuks selling snacks, drinks, a few food items as well as Pizza Hut.

During desperately hungry times I’ve eaten at the Target Pizza Huts which are definitely nothing great.

Well now Target has a new idea coming to an upcoming Chicago location. Continue reading Target Opening In-Store Wine Bar

Eater

In January 2014 I wrote about what I’d consider to be an extremely useful tool for finding the best airport eats, Eater’s Airport Dining Guides.

Since coming across Eater’s guides, I’ve used them every time that I’ve passed through a domestic airport and was in need of a meal or maybe even a snack! 🙂

I’ve noticed that the guides were in need of an update and it looks like it’s here. Continue reading Find Out Where To Dine Before Your Flight: Eater’s Airport Dining Guides
