very time I hit up Disney World I’ve always thought about what Disneyland was like since I forgot what it was like since it’s been so long since I went. I went when I was 12 years old and hardly remember anything.
Got dropped off by our Uber, guess we walk from here (don’t drive, uber!)
I have to say hands down after visiting, Disneyland is way better than Florida’s Magic Kingdom, that is for sure. It’s real small, quaint and charming with a light sense of magic. Now Disney World gives you the magic for sure, Disneyland was a little hard to get into since it’s in the middle of the hustle and bustle of everything California.
Look’s like it’s going to be a busy ass day! (September 12th, 2017)
The entrance isn’t what I remember but it’s just as amazing as could imagine.
So I’ve been dreaming of going to Disneyland since I went when I was like 11 and after going to Disney World so many times, it has became a reality! (wishes). We flew first class on United which was fucking amazing and worth it for the 4 hour journey.
First thing we did? Grab in and out burger. I’ll try to make this a 3 blog post series but we did a lot that week including the San Diego Zoo, so hopefully I can fit it all. Tag along.
Once you fly first you don’t go back. So true.
I mean when in rome… we had to right? They didn’t have any gluten free buns but they did have a lettuce wrap option. However the food tasted like cold plastic microwaved garbage. I also hate Whataburger but it was better than this shit.
Loaded the fuck up on some burgers for dinner after our flight

Well this was our last night in Chicago and after the Museum we decided to go hit up the Navy Pier and check out some sights around Chicago. We still had a couple hours of daylight so captured some cool photos during that time. Then we ended up eating some authentic Chicago pizza which happened to be gluten free and ended the night at Cherise.
Beautiful sights crossing the river (one they dye green for St Patricks Day)
Crazy car storage tower
Found an excellent deal on some tickets to Chicago for the weekend so said let’s do this. Only downside was the whole media hype on “crime”, however turned out to be the opposite of the local Chicago scene.
Waiting views out of Memphis, TN.
So I used Hotel Tonight app to find us a hotel for the two nights, usually my deal is book flights way in advance and wait till last minute for hotels. Unless I know there’s a convention going down or something that will make the prices rise. Hotel Tonight is great at finding awesome deals, I found Richard Bransons Hotel Virgin for a decent price and said let’s do it. It’s also a top rated hotel in downtown Chicago.
Was a pretty cool hotel and the check in staff was delightful. The smell of the hotel is like a Westin with a dope smell to it, and the amenities were also epic.
So my friends & I decided to go hit up Defcon, and check out Blackhat this year in Las Vegas and also hang out since one moved across the country. This was a totally slow time in Vegas and perfect weather. A lot of new restaurants, bars, things to check out since the last time I was in Vegas so come chill along in this 2 part blog post of our adventures.
Some real shitty Airport “smart bar” with crappy food.
Anyways read more to check out the start of our adventures in Las Vegas and catch a first class flight. =)
First landmark you see driving into Memphis
We begin yet another journey real close to Little Rock, AR which is the birthplace of Rock & Roll Memphis, TN. We drove the 2 hour drive and was a pleasant thoroughfare experience.
Though I hate rock, and I don’t give a shit about going to Elvis mansion. However one day I would like to check it out but it’s in the ghetto now and do not want to get shot. Come aboard this photographic journey of our hotel check in and to a top rated restaurant in Memphis, Flight. Also we end out the night at the largest Bass Pro shop!
Lobby at the River Inn of Harbor Town
As usual in our new home we have some fully custom home made hot dogs on July 4th, and we like to cook them weiners up. Also the next day we traveled to Two Rivers Park Bridge and biked all the way (4 miles) into Maumelle park and discovered mini farms. I guess for $30/month you can rent a small plot of land to plant your own garden and raise different species of produce. Was cool and an epic July 4th adventure.
100% Organic Gluten Free Goodness
Check out the gallery above, and my new bike I got at GIANT bikes.
Gluten Free Chic Fil Le Bun
This a late June catch up post to catch myself up at light speed ok, thanks. Each one of these could have been their own post but had to compile some to save some time. June is a wonderful month in Little Rock, very beautiful and a little hot. Not nearly as hot as Texas, the humidity is almost non existent here.
First up I tried the new Chic Fil Le gluten free bun that comes in it’s own wrapper that you probably should toast first at home, was a little chilly. It was decent, but I’d prefer an udi’s bun over that. I do enjoy their grilled chicken nuggets though.
Two Rivers Park Bridge
The Two Rivers Park Bridge is a pedestrian and bike bridge connected to Maumelle Park. The bridge is 1,368 feet long. It’s also a biotch to ride your bike over, but it’s a very clean bike ride and adventurous at that! Check it out and click read more. June Adventures!
Riding over the Two Rivers Park Bridge
Found this place on Yelp and was super curious as to what it’s image exactly was. Wasn’t boasting it self as a high-end steak house, nor a low end so had to give it a whirl.
Front of Butcher Shop
Butcher Shop is a huge building, with an open floor plan, kind of retro 90’s style which is cool, a lot of the older crowd enjoying themselves and an open kitchen towards the back.
Butcher Shop Menu
Our waitress at Butcher Shop was excellent, our food was decent, and a classic type place to enjoy a meal. This is a family restaurant that you could enjoy 5-6 days a week if you lived in the area and just wanted to enjoy some decent food and great service. Had the prime roasted beef which was tasty, and adding the sauce on top with a house salad and fully loaded baked potato. Tasty.
Prime Rib, Au Jus, Loaded Baked Potato NOM
I’ll be back. (Been back few times now)
