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.
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”

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.

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.
Welcome to the Memphis Zoo!
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
Day 2 Chillin Trip Report: On the way to Six Flags over Texas! Who’s ready for some roller coaster fun. I didn’t take to many photos, more or less video however I won’t be compiling a video edit for this post since I already made a personal one. But check out some of the sights of Six Flags Over Texas, located in Dallas, Texas.
It’s like arriving to Magic Kingdom! Heading into Six Flags
Heading into the entrance, apparently they had an advocare party going on later in the day which closed the park earlier. Fucked our trip by 2 hours. Fuck You Advocare. (read more)
So family took a trip to Dallas, Texas for the weekend and we hit up Six Flags Over Texas & Medieval Times. Turned out to be a great trip. Six Flags was pretty cool and chill and wasn’t that busy. Medieval Times was awesome and pretty darn epic, being a medieval fan it sure hit the sweet spot. We were on the red (VIP) team and of course our knights won the battle,HUZZAH. Also saw that magical Elsa plane on the way in to Dallas.
Stayed at some Embassy Suites that was decent, however management was a high school drop out I’m sure.

Worlds Largest Toy Museum?
Yes I think so let’s go. But first, breakfast at our hotel (which was the most pleasant experience of our stay).
Brunch at Chateau on the Lake (beautiful views, empty restaurant, but hey gluten free buns!)

So Silver Dollar city is:Silver Dollar City is a theme park in the US state of Missouri. Opened on May 1, 1960. The park is an 1880s-themed experience that fits Branson’s vision as a family-friendly vacation destination with down-home charm. Silver Dollar City’s operating season runs from mid-March until late December, with the park closed during the months of January and February.
So now you know, I read about this which is why another reason to come visit Branson, and we went when it was hot, I can only imagine what it’s going to be like in the colder months to go back and check it out. Before the park we stopped at a Craft mall right near our hotel which turned out to be a bunch of old people shit and sewn together homemade junk crap. Like Hobby Lobby type crap, but they had a grill in the back so we grubbed lunch.
Pickin Porch Grill (sounds racist) No gluten free bun but fresh stuff and tasted good.
Let’s goto Silver Dollar City! Hit read more
