For as long as I can remember I always remember seeing that one photo of Lake Louise on Banff, it’s a magical photo that gets shared on IG, FB, you name it every year. However this was the frozen part of the year I found some cheap flights to Calgary and decided to take the dive into the winter cold. It was well worth it and a great experience to check out Canada during the Winter months. Also I’ve never been to Calgary so was excited to check it out in the first place.
So this is basically the entire reason for the trip, “Hey want to go get drunk at the Food and Wine Festival in Orlando?” I mean who says no. It’s always a damnit let’s go book it kind of situation. So let’s go explore the gluten free side of the Food & Wine Festival. I didn’t document it nearly as hardcore as I usually do but I still put in some effort of photographing food for myself.
I haven’t had time to update weekly right now so I will be posting all the adventures I’ve had during the months of June through September. Las Vegas, Dallas, Little Rock, and some gluten free fun. So check out the photos below.
The Pantry, Little Rock, AR

First trip to Europe was a success and great adventures were had. Explored a lot of things I never though I’d see in this decade and got to visit another Disneyland Park! Now I’m planning on going back already, the only thing that delayed me was the 7 or 8 hour journey! Now I know to just buy an inflatable seat cushion off Amazon next time and I’m good to go. Premium Economy is the way to go, first class for $6000 for only 7 hour flight just doesn’t make sense to me, but I understand if you got it, spend it. Let’s roll out.
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.
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.
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.
I usually avoid chain restaurants at all costs, but living in a city with few restaurants that have a dedicated gluten free menu can be frustrating. What better way to embrace chain restaurants at this point then to go to places who do it, and do it right! We adventured to Olive Garden and P.F. Changs, PF Changs at this point we now almost get delivered weekly, they do gluten free right.
Heres a photo video slideshow of my latest trip to Las Vegas. Checked out the new Luxor E-Sports Arena, had a full lunch at Gordon Ramsay’s newest spot Hell’s Kitchen at Caesars Palace. Also flew United First class and experienced a gluten free dinner meal. Also tried a new spot at Paris “The Eiffel Restaurant”, was so good. Paris Casino is in fact the best gluten free casino in Las Vegas period.
