Classic Burgers at the All-American Driver-In

All American Drive In

It’s definitely no secret that burgers are one of my favorite foods.

I recently wrote about Eater’s 21 Must-East & Best Burgers in America.

At the time of writing, I had tried burgers at 7 of the places that made the list. With the most recent one being at The General Muir.

There was one place, not too far from home which I’d been wanting to try for quite some time, the All American Drive-In. Continue reading Classic Burgers at the All-American Driver-In

Whenever we tell people that we meet when traveling that we’re from NYC or Brooklyn, more often then not they mention how they love the city and would love to visit again some day.

Why do people love New York so much? It could be due to the shopping, Broadway shows, Central Park or maybe even the since it is the home of the NY Mets. (OK, I’m willing to bet that it isn’t for my last reason!)

I just came across another reason why people might want to visit New York. Continue reading Is New York the Best Meat City in America?

Slice Out Hunger-NYC: 10/8- $1 Pizza For A Cause

Pizza is one of the most perfect and favorite foods for me. I’m lucky to have been born in Brooklyn, NY- home to some of the greatest pizzerias around.

As a city, NY has so many great places to eat pizza that you could definitely try out new ones all of the time without needing to go back to the same place. However, we all still have our favorites which are well worth returning to!

Last year I attending an amazing charity event called Slice Out Hunger. (Check out my post about it here.) The event is organized by pizza expert Scott Wiener who runs Scott’s Pizza Tours in NYC. I took the tour last year and had an amazing time. I’d recommend it for any pizza lover visiting the city in the future! Continue reading Slice Out Hunger-NYC: 10/8- $1 Pizza For A Cause

The numbers were overwhelming: Continue reading 92% Of Germans Have Never Been To NY, Can Lufthansa Help?

Joggling 26.2 Miles In The NYC Marathon

Who knew that some people like to juggle while running a marathon? I didn’t but here is how I found out.

On Sunday, November 3 the ING New York City Marathon was taking place around the 5 boroughs. Kim and I had the bright idea to head to Williamsburg, Brooklyn for brunch.

We made it there in record time but once we got near the area  that the marathon ran through, there was no way to drive any further. The streets were cordoned off with police roadblocks for what seemed like, everywhere! We were driving further and further from our destination and then decided to change plans and go elsewhere.
