    One night in Harlem : Soul food, music and some Anthony Hamilton …

    I’ll raise my hand and say it. For all the times I’ve been to NYC and then worked in NYC, I’ve only been to Harlem once! And that was for some good eats in Spanish Harlem at the recommendation of some random person on that D spoke to on the subway. I’ve always wanted to spend sometime in Harlem, but …

    Tuesday night sculpture hunting in Calgary

    After working all day, the nice thing about leaving work is that I can go hang out with more crazy Calgary public art displays. In front, the Canadian Pacific office, there is a lovely locomotive hulk and tender that’s been meticulously restored to its former glory by the CP shop employees for permanent display in front of CPR’s Calgary headquarters. Opposite the CP …

    What to do in Calgary on a Monday night? Stephen Avenue Walking!

    For the last couple weeks, I’ve suffered with this question – especially as the thermometer has dropped below 0°C. I’ve learned over the last month, that Calgary’s entertainment scene is geographically spread far and wide across the city. Calgary is a sizable city and if one doesn’t know where to begin, the choices can be over or underwhelming – depending …

    Best Breakfast in Chicago – Lou Mitchell’s Meatloaf

    In Trinidad, I never grew up with meatloaf. Why would we – this is a purely European derivative “dish”. In Trinidad – who ate ground beef growing up?? Definitely not anyone I knew – it was expensive and you couldn’t make it into a curry – the only place you would have any sort of ground beef, was in a …

    More Deep Dish nonsense in Chicago – The Art of Pizza

    I have no problem saying it … “I’m not a fan of deep dish pizza … never was … never will be”. It’s not that people don’t like it … there are wars between New Yorkers and Chi-Towners about the pizza in their town and which is the best. I’m lactose intolerant-“ish” … hence I will never get the stuffed …

    Monday Morning Consultant – Westin North Chicago review

    Chicago is one of my favorite towns in the US, hands down. There also happens to be a few Starwood properties here and we ended choosing the Westin Chicago River North – this would be the first time staying at this hotel, as my preferred hotels are the W City Center or Chicago Hotel and Towers – but there is …
