Pig Floyd’s Urban Barbakoa

Feb 4, 2015

    I’ve been to Orlando dozens of times, but always just went directly to one of the theme parks.  I was flying solo with some time to kill so decided to venture into downtown Orlando to seek out some of the city’s best eats.  I didn’t really have time to do my normal homework on the Interwebs with sites like Yelp and Urbanspoon so...

Main Street Kolaches

    It’s been a sad few years ever since the only place in Salt Lake to get kolaches closed down.  I’m really grateful to have now discovered a new place to get them.  Only problem for those living in Salt Lake City, is you will have driven an hour to get there.  It may just be worth the drive. For those that frequent the area for the...

    Here we are at the last stop of my Miami trip with legendary international salesman of the year Matt Kennedy.  Puerto Sagua has been around for a long, long, long time folks.  I’m not talking Miami Vice times, dial it all the way back to pre-Scarface times.  Since 1962 Puerto Sagua has been serving Cuban cuisine like the Cuban sandwich, and...

    Why am I showing you a YouTube of the Transformers theme song?  Because one of the opening lines of the song is “more than meets the eye” which is exactly how I felt pulling up to this Upper East Side Miami Eatery.  All I saw was a neon sign on the outside of this restaurant connected to an old motel with a small parking lot....

  One of the things I enjoyed most about Miami Beach were the bicycle rentals that could be found throughout the city.  For $10 bucks you can rent a bicycle and ride it anywhere for 2 hours.  The traffic laws on Miami Beach are very conducive to cyclists as well.  Towards the end of my 2 hour block, I came upon a rental station and this place caught my...

Oh Mexico

Oh Mexico

  Day one in Miami, after all of my research online on best breakfast spots in the area, my plan was to make my way to Espandola Street and try out A La Folie Cafe, however when I arrived, they were shooting a movie or T.V show in front of the eatery, and they had just lost their electricity.  I decided to check out a place close by, and Oh Mexico was the...

Commander’s Palace

Commander’s Palace

Jan 23, 2015

  The older I have gotten in life the more I have come to realize that when it comes to choosing between material things and experiencing things, the latter is much more fulfilling.  The great thing about Commanders Palace, is that you can have both.  It is a place where 250 plus staff are waiting to give you the eating experience of a lifetime at one of...

   Monserrate is one of Bogotá’s most well-known and visible land marks.  At 10,340 feet you have a great view of the city’s 9 million inhabitants.  The top of the mountain is accessible by one of the steepest cable cars I’ve ever been.  Built in the 1950’s by Swiss engineers, it almost feels like taking an elevator up to the...
