Las Vegas Week for Nightclub & Bar Show 2019

So had to hit up the Nightclub & Bar Show 2019 for work so I’ll keep the bar show posts to a minimal but wanted to document my journey of that week through some photos, check them out on read more. Was a good trip, flew First on United which is always the worst in service, and as usual worst at handling customers with allergies. But it’s where my status is so I always get upgraded!

Got in around 4PM to Vegas, the clouds make it look super dark out.

City Silo Table + Pantry, Memphis, TN

Eh being gluten free and wanting to try something new decided to hit up City Silo Table + Pantry. They really need to expand on their meat options and delicious options. The food was eh 2/5 and the presentation was eh.

It wasn’t like OMG we have to go back, more like eh, maybe. Also if you think your ordering something special it probably won’t be. Like a bowl of sweet potatos is just that bowl of cold sweet potatos. Nothing fancy. It’s okay, just don’t expect to be blown away unless your a 100% tree hugger where you don’t have taste buds.

Toronto Like a Tourist Part 1

I’ve never done a “mileage run” before, nor have I heard of it before actually becoming a United Premier Silver member. Basically once you fly a lot on a certain airline you get rewarded if you hit a certain number of miles, qualifying segments and dollars spent per 1 year. Reading that if you don’t hit it within 1 year after the new year comes around you lose all progress, so it would be a shame for me to miss “silver” status and all it’s perks by only $250.

So I decided to book a flight to Toronto for the weekend which ended up in a 4 night trip due to delays of course (classic United). I’ll explain more about Premier Silver status by United laater on. I did all the major tourist things and then some, especially when your gluten free you always know it’s going to lead you off the beaten path to more authentic local spots which is a bonus.

I love flying 40,000 feet viewing the cloud grounds, it’s Care Bear world eh!
After customs these are the international arrivals, it’s massive!

Seattle Zoo, Pikes Place Market, and Museum of Flight

We accomplished a lot in the two days we were in Seattle before heaving off to Whistler, BC. Today we knocked out the Zoo, Pikes Place Market, and the Museum of Flight! I felt like it was the actual real ultimate Seattle experience and would recommend it for anybody coming for a 24 hour layover or stop. Favorite thing? Was probably the Pikes Place Market!

First stop: Nuflours Bakery (all gluten free) was decent, but nothing to write home about. But props to carry gf products at all!

Instead of doing a tradition blog post I decided to just make another video picture blog of my adventure, any questions feel free to ask, but click the video below to see my photos from the zoo, pikes market, and the flight museum!

Seattle Washington Adventure

Let’s go to Seattle, WA! I’ve never been there and I have always wanted to go. I guess being a computer nerd it’s always been in my mind to check it out. Also the picture of Pikes Place Market I remember from a grade school text book about rain and always thought it was cool and mysterious. I’d go back, a lot more to see and do.

united 737

Flew United’s 737-8 First Class, raw salmon was disgusting, no IFE’s and older plane. However not bad for a 4 hour flight from IAH-SEA.

Not bad views landing down in Seattle

 

I read about all the bums and homeless people downtown and what not but however my experience was a pleasant one and actually did not run into one homeless person that was “aggressive” as everywhere stated online to watch out for.

We stayed at the Stay Pineapple which was awesome, cozy, and perfect. However be warned hotels in Seattle are like NYC, even the dumps are $300/night.

July Update 2018: San Antonio and Hotel Havana

Had a work trip in San Antonio and wanted to find a super cool hotel to stay at, hence finding the Havana. A sweet antique type hotel that was small, off the tourist riverwalk and smelled good. Had a cool restaurant and attached bar. Check it out below, I also flew out of Texarkana which was pretty sweet, on an old ERJ-140. Love the vintage planes.

texarkana

It’s not much, but I think it’s totally rad. Like an aviation nerd’s kind of fun. Small airports are the best.

texarkana

Vintage planes, vintage blinds, old school airport seats, the smell of the 70s, ah Texarkana.

Ahh, I missed my favorite park.

Some trivia, I read there was a dragon on the entrance because it was suppose to be the Beastly Kingdom with dragons?! There really is a dragon on the entrance of the park. To Cool.

WDW Trip Report Day 4: Guided Fishing Excursion

If you have ever wanted to go on a guided fishing excursion at Walt Disney World I will present you with some knowledge. It can be a fun in the sun adventure if you love to fish and the outdoors. You typically wake up at 9AM and meet up with your guide at the resort around 10AM and off you go, the resorts vary.

Contemporary Resort Docks

This time we met up at the Contemporary Resort Docks.

They go over a few basic rules then you launch out. I’ve been three times on this excursion. The first two times were awesome, the feeling of being VIP cruising through Seven Seas Lagoon and around the resorts is amazing and refreshing while in Florida.

mini jet boats

Screw the fishing guide, I wanted to go on a mini jet boat so bad!

Our last adventure our guide Sean was a total asshole, don’t know how he even has this job. If you get a good guide everything is awesome and fun, usually they bait your hook, help you cast, teach you the good spots, etc. This guy was like a lazy piece of shit who didn’t say or help worth a shit, and then when we asked he was just was so apathetic it was useless to even bother. However we still had a great time. It costs around $300 for 2-5 people for 2 hours and then your suppose to tip your captain as well. Check out the photos below for the fishing adventure.
