So our next stop is Birmingham, Alabama and we had a quick layover in Chicago so here are some snaps of our grub sesh at Harry Carey’s there which is pretty much a bullshit wanna be gluten free restaurant.
So we wanted a sit down restaurant to grub for our 2 hour layover, got right into Harry Carays after 5 minutes. Staff was excellent but the only reason we ate here was because their menu said “Gluten-Free Menu Available” which I asked for once we waited for 5 minutes and sat down, then our server informed us they have not printed new ones.
I emailed their main management and will let YELP people know this place is no longer gluten-free friendly and has a menu that is clearly dated. The 3 stars however is for their burger (no bun) with cheese, pickles, lettuce, bacon and french fries are excellent. The quality of beef and service here make this place worthy if you are not gluten-free or chose the no bun option on a burger. Anyways, hit read more to check out our hotel views, and a stop at the local Zoo… DOH!?! We also hit up a badass coffee and pop shop.
Sweet mountain on the drive to PHX
So we rented a car in Tucson and after our two night adventure their we drove to Phoenix to hang out with a family member, so during the day we decided to hit up the Zoo there as usual which is pretty awesome and massive. I’ll post some pics of where we ate, and the journey to Phoenix as well as all the animals we encountered at the Zoo. Hit read more and keep up, let’s see some exotic animals.
After parking a mile away finally made it to the front…
After a day in Sacramento we traveled to Tucson, Arizona with a 2 hour layover at Los Angeles Airport which sucked, but Tucson is pretty cool city, so check out this post about Tucson and a visit to the Zoo and a stay at the Westin La Paloma Resort & Spa which was awesome and pretty.
Can you say damn that is a lot of people living in LA
Stop 5: Dallas, TX
On wards to Dallas, TX and this time we flew United again since it was cheaper this time and the Economy Plus seats are no joke. This adventure we went to the Mansion restaurant, the Dallas Zoo, a badass gluten-free brunch spot, and the Dallas Natural History Museum.
Watch some TV in Economy Plus and kick back!
Day 1: The Mansion, Dallas, TX
We found a great restaurant called the Mansion which has been in Dallas for awhile apparently and it was none the less a great experience, and had some awesome food. I didn’t photo everything because it was really a private dining experience but instead captured our desserts. The food was excellent and the restaurant was beautiful, the cocktails that were holiday themed were awesome.

Stop 4: Cleveland, Ohio
Next journey has arrived us in Cleveland Ohio with a visit to the Zoo, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Intercontinental Hotel, and a trip to the best Toy store I’ve ever seen.
Touchdown in Cleveland
Cleveland, Ohio has a lot to offer for a week visit and there are lots of things to do and explore. Especially the vegan/gluten free scene. I’ll be updating this week with my latest journey’s to Dallas, Disney World, and then next week I’m flying out to California! So check out this post about all my adventures and findings in Cleveland, Ohio which was cold but a real shitty town. Lot’s of Ghetto-Ness.
First night we got to our pretty cool hotel the Intercontinental which was a huge 2 bedroom hotel with a super comfortable bed and then we Yelp’d a local restaurant real close that had a gluten-free menu. “Table 45” which is at another Intercontinental hotel, so we took a free shuttle on over to see what Cleveland food had to offer. But first check out my bed and see where I got some hard sleep and amazing ZzZzz.

Okay WAKE UP, let’s go have dinner at Table 45, but first hit Read More.
Day 7 in Charleston, South Carolina
We start off by going to the Aquarium since every city I visit I must visit a zoo or an aquarium to check on the animals and tell them whats up, they all wait for me too and give me a great photo opportunity.
Let’s go to the Charleston Aquarium!
You walk into Liberty Square which has Ft. Sumter Boat & Aquarium
Beautiful Architecture of the Entrance

I love Zoo’s.
Detroit Zoo is pretty elite.
This Zoo is huge and almost walked 3 miles here and takes about 2 hours to complete, the day we went the lady at the ticket counter was the rudest person I’ve ever encountered. All the restaurants were were closed except the gift shops. It was a Thursday at 2 P.M. Most of the animals and staff were friendly and they were setting up for Halloween which looked to be pretty legit and exciting, wish I could have gone during a Halloween event!
The pumpkins displayed were awesome and art of there own. The black squirrels are an epic find and saw about 100 them. The parking here is also super easy, just park in the garage in the back and walk about 100 feet and your good to go. The polar bear exhibit was def my favorite and spacious, was super proud the zoo kept this bear happy.
This Zoo is chillin approved and I’ve been to a lot of different Zoo’s this is def in m top 5. If your in the area or debating to go, hit it up! Prepare for the stink in the Penguins! Also don’t miss the Bush dogs, by far one of the coolest animals I’ve seen in awhile. Click on read more to see all my photos from the Detroit Zoo visit, you will find Polar Bears, Giraffes, Monkeys, Penguins and much more, ahhh zoooooo!
Houston Zoo Eats.
Took an hour to get a slice of pizza and hamburger.
