For quite some time I’ve mentioned that Shake Shake was my favorite fast- casual burger shop.
Back in 2011, I went to the grand opening of the first Shack in Brooklyn. Recently, I shared a super- proud dad moment thanks to Shake Shack!

The Michael W Travels family recently got back from an awesome little trip to Ireland.
While Dublin is usually a quick flight from NYC, we flew on connecting flights each way. A small inconvenience is worth it to save on the cost of a flight, if you ask me…

The other Priority Pass lounge was quite different and possibly the most interesting one that I’ve ever visited. Continue reading The Most Interesting Priority Pass Lounge I’ve Visited
It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood and one local man recently started a petition through Change.org, to change the name of Pittsburgh Airport.
For those of you not so familiar with the line “It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood”, it’s from the children’s TV show Mister Rogers Neighborhood.
The show was created by Fred Rogers. He starred in it for over 30 years. When I think of the show, the famous red sweater (shown above) comes to mind. Continue reading Petition Created to Rename Pittsburgh Airport After Mister Rogers
