Years back, Kim and I visited a spot in Lithuania which is supposedly the Geographic Center of Europe. At the site, there was a visitor center and a fancy marker. You could even get a certificate to prove that you were there!

Over winter break, we set out to find the center of Paris. Find out about our failed attempt at visiting the site.

Yesterday, I was watching local news channel NY1 when an interesting segment came on related to the center of New York City. Continue reading This Is Not The Geographic Center of New York City!

Disappointing Bacon Cheeseburger From The Little Owl- Once Considered Best In World

the little owlFor quite some time, I’d wanted to dine at The Little Owl to try out their Bacon Cheeseburger.

Back in 2009, The Guardian named it the best hamburger in the world. The Little Owl is still considered one of the best burgers as it came in #11 on The 101 Best Burgers In America for 2018 from The Daily Meal.

On a recent visit to Manhattan, we decided to head over to The Little Owl to see what all of the fuss was about. Continue reading Disappointing Bacon Cheeseburger From The Little Owl- Once Considered Best In World

Hotel Review: Kimpton Eventi New York City

kimpton eventiI recently shared details about what I booked with my last uncapped IHG anniversary free night.

Last year, I used my free night for a stay at the Kimpton Hotel Monaco in Philadelphia. After the stay, I felt the property was worth writing a review about. Check out my review of the Kimpton Monaco here.

This year, I was hoping to use my anniversary free night for a trip being planned. However, nothing really made sense for us so I decided to use my free night for another Kimpton stay.

We booked the Kimpton Eventi NYC for a little staycation. Continue reading Hotel Review: Kimpton Eventi New York City

Trying The Top Rated Burger In America At Au Cheval NYC

Au ChevalA couple of weeks back, the #1 rated burger in America came to NYC when Au Cheval opened in Tribeca.

I’ve long wanted to take another trip to Chicago and try Au Cheval’s cheeseburger. While I still want to go to Chicago again, trying this popular burger became much easier for me.

Last weekend the Michael W Travels family headed to Tribeca with the hopes of getting into Au Cheval without much of a wait for brunch. Continue reading Trying The Top Rated Burger In America At Au Cheval NYC

Food Review: The Cheeseburger (& Wings) at Old Town Bar in NYC

Old TownBefore having kids, Kim and I used to go to the historic Old Town Bar (which has been around since 1892) for a drink from time to time. However, we didn’t realize that they served food back then. And when we did find out, we didn’t know that it was supposed to be really good.

A bit later on, I started reading that Old Town Bar served a really good burger. Considering how much I love burgers, I’ve wanted to give it a try for years but the timing was never right. Continue reading Food Review: The Cheeseburger (& Wings) at Old Town Bar in NYC
