    48 hours in Charlottetown : Foodie Weekend

    If you’re a consultant like me, time is typically precious and you’re doing weekend trips. This means that you’re getting in on a Friday morning/early afternoon and leaving on the latest Sunday night flight.

    Warning : Amato Pizza Refuses Groupons

    I’m so sick of Amato Pizza here at 429A Yonge St. I really like their pizza but I hate the customer service and the old man here. Like hate with a passion. I’m also really sick of GroupOn.

    Monday Night Raw in Montreal 2015 … It’s front seats or nothing

    I have a confession … When you come from a family of 4 sons, you’re bound to watch some type of sporting event or have an affinity for a sport.

    What to do in Antigua Guatemala : Go to the Mercado to make lunch

    When you’re in one place for a couple weeks, you eventually develop a routine. With Mitchell around, the idea of wild adventure travelling was pretty much thrown out of the equation.

    After a week in Antigua Guatemala, everyone has recommendations for great breakfast places. I’ve always found that the best recommendations will come from other service providers or owners in the food business.

There aren’t many sidewalks because the streets are cobblestoned and there isn’t much walkway.  However on our way to 7A Norte a couple nights ago, we passed by Cactus Tacos and I made a note about trying them, since I’m …
