Road Trip Part 1-Phoenix to Jackson Hole

I love road trips, I mean who doesn’t? I have done road trips all over the world in some pretty awesome places and a few in America too. However, the road trip I just did around the old west and the National Parks of the western US was as good as any road trip I’ve […]

Amateur Night at the Apollo Theater

When you live in a city like New York with a million things to do and people to see on any given night and you are away a lot, sometimes it’s easy to not do certain things or let them slip through the cracks. For many years I had always meant to go to the […]

Aloha From Oahu

I first went to Hawaii in March 2004 for ten days or so and I really didn’t have that great a time. I spent my time on Oahu, Maui and Kauai and wasn’t too upset to leave the islands and head back home. Six years later was a much different story. I had a blast […]

Indian Wells Masters Tennis

I am a huge tennis fan and have always watched the Indian Wells Masters tournament since I can remember. However, I never really knew where it was except that it was somewhere in California. So last year when I came out to Arizona I was looking at a map to see what was around. I […]

The Phoenix Open

The Phoenix Open is hands down the coolest golf tournament in the world. If you’ve ever been to a golf tournament, just throw all your boring preconceptions, misconceptions and thoughts out because the Phoenix Open is unlike any other tournament you’ve ever been to. It’s a huge party and golf is the last thing on […]

The Town Too Tough To Die

“The Town too Tough to Die,” Tombstone, Arizona is the most renowned of Arizona’s old mining camps. When Ed Schieffelin came to Camp Huachuca with a party of soldiers and left the fort to prospect, his comrades told him that he’d find his tombstone rather than silver. Thus, in 1877 Schieffelin named his first claim […]

Tucson in Short

If you read my site regularly then you know how much I love sports. I also love Universities and seeing different schools. So it seemed natural to head down to Tucson for the University of Arizona homecoming and football weekend. No I didn’t go to Arizona and in fact I don’t even like the state […]

The Arizona State Fair

Aaaaahhhh the state fair. For those who have never been it conjures up images of great times, fun rides and amazing food with nothing but smiling faces and cute little animals. Well I am hardly a state fair veteran but this is my second one in my second state and I have to say that […]

A Weekend in Oregon

‘Keep Portland Weird’ is written in huge letters on the back of a building across from the famous Voodoo Donuts on Third Street in Portland and few sayings can sum up Portland quite so well. It is a weird place, that’s for sure. However, it is also one of the best cities in the United […]

A Classic Road Trip in Arizona

There are few things I love more than a good road trip. Anywhere in the world, I would almost always prefer to drive if it’s reasonable because you get to see so much more, so much closer up. In the United States, there are few better places to take road trips than the Southwest. The […]
