A Foodie Weekend in Dallas

How much food and drink can one person experience in 3 days? I tested my limits this past Labor Day weekend in one of my favorite US cities: Dallas, Texas. As soon as we landed we headed straight for our favorite brunch stop. A Dallas staple, Smoke is a modern Texan restaurant by well-known James Beard Award-Winning chef…   Read More»

This past trip, however, showed me that Miami has a LOT more to offer. It’s a foodie paradise! We started off the weekend paddle-boarding in Key…   Read More»
