Entire Boat with John Mike Rick Ron Joan & Dave

Boating Long Island’s Gold Coast

A couple of summers ago we had the idea to rent a speed boat as a family to celebrate my Dad’s birthday. We ended up exploring NYC by boat and even having lunch while floating beside the Statue of Liberty. It was so much fun that we decided to do it again this year. I […]

She may not have ever had PEZ before, but she knows she wants it.

Visiting the PEZ Factory in Orange, CT

I love PEZ. Not many people know this about me, but I used to be rather obsessed with PEZ. Would it surprise you to know that I have a collection of 439 PEZ dispensers or that I own more PEZ memorabilia than most people even know exist? It’s been awhile since I was an active […]

While we're on breakfast, get a load of these poached eggs. What's that they're sitting on? Fried green tomatoes. Wait, what's under the tomatoes? Crab cakes! Yes. Really. This is also from Huey's on River Street.

Vietnamese Food in New York: Pho Bang

Ever since I was young, I’ve loved Asian food. Growing up, there wasn’t anything better than Americanized Chinese food. Give me some of that General Tso’s, what could be better?

Visiting the Panama Canal on Layover in Panama City

On a recent trip to Peru, Chandra and I tried our hardest to find a direct flight back to New York but just couldn’t make it work. We ended up booked on Copa Airlines with a five hour layover in Panama City. You know we weren’t about to spend those five hours in the airport. […]
