California Journey Day 3: Universal Studios Hollywood

iconic signage

eh!

Day 3 of this EPIC California adventure begins with breakfast at our hotel and then a twenty minute drive through Los Angeles. Then we end up at Universal Studios Hollywood. I remember the Apollo 13 Space Shuttle from when I was 12 and visited. First let’s check out some photos of the cruise through the iconic city, which is trashy as fuck. Just like the breakfast.

Disneyland Trip Day 2: Disneyland! Gluten Free Adventures

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.

Disneyland Trip Day 1: Flight In + California Adventure

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

Chicago Night’s and Chicago Style Pizza

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

Chicago Day 2: Do-Rite Donuts and Museum of Science+Industry

Day two of Chicago was just as dope as day 1, we decided to venture out of our hotel and find some place to grab breakfast. I found on Yelp a super awesome spot called “Do-Rite Donuts” that had gluten free donuts. We walked 0.4 miles and was the smallest NYC looking type of place but sure enough had the most amazing assortment of donuts I’ve ever seen. Also the gluten free ones were yes the best gluten-free donuts I’ve ever had. If not the best gluten free of anything I’ve ever had.

even my favorite organic chocolate milk!

Then we were off to the Museum of Science+Industry which happens to be an old World’s Fair site from 1893 that is still standing and a monument to behold. Didn’t even realize it until I left.

Built in 1893 for the Chicago Worlds Fair, so cool

Chicago Adventures: Flight In | Virgin Hotel | Lincoln Park Zoo

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.

Vegas 3: Yardbird, Level Up, STACK at Mirage, Last Day

Yardbird

not even good, how do you fuck up deviled eggs

Really wanted to try this place the last few times I’ve been in Vegas. While I note 3 stars for having gluten free fried chicken, the chicken itself was horrible. Dry, way to spicy, and had no real crunch. I’ve made better gluten free chicken at home cheaper than $30.

The service was great at first then quickly lead to a downhill battle of when would he get the check, etc back and forth. This is another typical “dress up the inside real nice” and attract the tourists spot, at least in my opinion or experience when I went.

 

They also take 30+ extra minutes for the gluten free chicken which was the reason I went. However next time I’ll find a better spot. A+ for effort though, I appreciate any restaurant giving gluten free patrons a substitute.

“gluten free fried chicken+ burn your asshole spicy”

Vegas 2: Peppermill, Exploring, Marvels Avengers, Lemongrass

So part 2 of our Las Vegas journey starts with the end cap of night 3 which was going to the Peppermill at 2 in the morning. Now who does this? Well when you TripAdvisor or YELP anything food 24 hour in Vegas the Peppermill is #1.

It’s historic and legendary amongst Vegas locals. The exterior was a sight to be hold and the inside was even better. Be sure to check it out next time your in Las Vegas, it’s off the strip but worth it.

The Iconic Peppermill, since 1972.

Trees, booths, lights, sights and sounds of the Vegas nightlife crowd. After a long day of hanging out, walking, shows, the Peppermill was a comfort to say the least. The food was the best part, now you must get steak and eggs, DOH! It was simply the best.

2AM Steak & Eggs, yes please. NOM.

Memphis, TN – The Memphis Zoo & Dinner Bounty on Broad

So on day two of our trip to Memphis we hit up the Memphis Zoo, turns out the Memphis Zoo is a top contender for literally one of the best Zoo’s I’ve ever been too. This Zoo has it all, it’s Disney quality and it’s easy on the feet. Also multiple stations to eat, shaded areas, and places to sit.

I don’t need a detailed review, all I can say is if you love Zoo’s the Memphis Zoo is worth a flight to stay the weekend and check out. Even though Memphis is pretty ghetto, this Zoo is literally the best thing going for it. Also tried a gluten free spot called Bounty on Broad, tune in after the gallery below.
