The Miserable Bastard’s Guide to Surviving Disney World Pt. 1- Prep, The People, The Resort

Marriage and kids are a slippery slope to doing shit you never imagined in a million years. I am not the kind of man who would voluntarily travel to an overcrowded amusement park for a week and spend more than the cost of a very nice European vacation for the honor. I hate flying, I […]

The Miserable Bastard’s Guide to Surviving Disney World Pt. 2- The Food, The Experience, Final Thoughts

THE FOOD In general, Disney food is not good. I’m not saying that with the authority of a Yelper who will commit self-harm if they don’t get Elite status again this year (Elite Yelpers are the absolute mind-numbing worst). I’m saying it as someone with realistic expectations who actually knows what he is talking about. […]

The Boiler Room: Omaha, Nebraska

  There really isn’t any other way to say it than to just say it….I’ve always been a boob guy. As far back as I can possibly remember, that fact has been a driving force in my life when it comes to my fascination with and admiration for the opposite sex. In this I am […]

Calvin Trillin’s Pretty Mouth…

The Greatest Meal of My Life…

To the most logical extreme within the boundaries of my level of supreme over-spending on dining, I’ve eaten some pretty good stuff. It’s much easier to justify that incarnation of a crippling addiction…it’s socially acceptable, delicious, and fun to talk about.  I forget how far from normal I am sometimes with the OCD sourcing, dining, […]

DC Grub 2011: Citronelle

  Wednesday night at Citronelle… I know it has taken me too long to get to the best meal of my trip….but I’ve had a lot going on and I wanted to do it justice. And it truly was….the best meal of the trip, and I would also add it to my top five ever. […]

DC Grub 2011: Komi

  Tuesday Night at Komi… At Komi, when it comes to taking pictures, the decision is made for you…you can’t do it. It’s a rule of the house, and rightfully so. It’s located in a cool little walk-up, above a dry cleaner in Dupont Circle, so it’s a pretty narrow Quaker-Mediterranean decorated space with a […]
