Farewell, Denver…Maybe

Screen Shot 2012-02-14 at 10.06.06 AMI knew the time would come when I would have to say goodbye to this amazing city. I just hate that it came so soon, especially because it actually felt colder in Atlanta when I left on Sunday than it feels here. I could devote an entire post to the weather alone. Sigh…

Sadly, I will likely make the local news later, since law enforcement will probably have to drag me out of The Brown Palace Hotel & Spa against my will.

Screen Shot 2012-02-14 at 10.22.35 AMI’ve fallen in love with the city so much that I might not even mind an extended stay in the Denver County Jail after resisting arrest. Hopefully, they’ll let me Tweet, Facebook, and blog from my cell, because I have so much to share from my adventure. Stay tuned. And cross your fingers that the warden allows me to use my computer from slammer.

Too Much Baltimore to Talk About and Too Little Time

Hi everyone!  I’m packing up and about the head to the Airport.  I have so much to talk about from the second half of my day about Baltimore yesterday and not enough time to post it all before packing my stuff up.  Look for the continued adventures later today.

Here’s a preview of some of what is to come:

  • I’ll tell you about Max’s in Fell’s Point which is one of the best beer bars in the country.
  • There a whole bit about Federal Hill and finally eating some crab cakes!
  • The story of hanging out with my friends from Baltimore, Jordan and Christine, and their insider info on the city and some places to check out that I would not really call “touristy” ;)
  • Some wrap ups about Baltimore and the Southwest Experience.

See you then!

Finally… some BBQ! Austin, TX signature food from Stubb’s

Stubb'sAs my trip comes to an end, it seems that I saved the best for last.  One thing that I wanted to experience was Austin’s good BBQ.  My dinner at Stubb’s was the perfect capstone.  Even though they were out of their Monday special, BBQ Beef Ribs (I was dissappointed about that), I did order the pork ribs with mac n cheese, and mashed sweet potatoes.  And I can’t forget the sweet tea.  SMH… talk about good.  I was in hog heaven.  Special thanks to Amanda Garcia, the Austin Convention & Visitors Bureau for hanging out with me.

Austin TX is picture perfect
