Pieology (Royal Oak, Michigan)

Pizza is our jam. Seriously, we’ve been through so many different pizza places through our travels that we could probably give you a list of 100 different pizzerias through the mid-west that you should try. We were lucky enough to be given a chance to visit the Royal Oak (Detroit suburb) location of Pieology a bit back, and wanted to report that the company is serving up some great pies without charging an arm and a leg.

Taziki’s Mediterranean Cafe (North Little Rock, Arkansas)

We have been huge fans of Mediterranean food for a long time now, and we have had a whole array of experiences with restaurants offering that fare. Some have called themselves Mediterranean and have only served gyros and pizza, while we’ve had Greek and Lebanese-specific fare that differs in a number of large ways. Taziki’s is a modern take on the food of the region, providing a deep menu with everything done right. We were lucky enough to be invited in to their store in the McCain Mall in North Little Rock, Arkansas. Continue reading “Taziki’s Mediterranean Cafe (North Little Rock, Arkansas)”

Kalahari Resort – Sandusky, Ohio – Resort Review

All the individuals at Kalahari resort in Sandusky, Ohio were tremendously kind to us when we went last weekend. We were able to see into the nooks and crannies of the resort and in doing so, found some of the best times that we have ever had. We spent a single night at the Kalahari resort, and we will come back in the months and years to come. Read on to see exactly why that was, and why Kalahari may just be the best attraction in Ohio to hit up. Continue reading “Kalahari Resort – Sandusky, Ohio – Resort Review”

On the Border (Texarkana, TX)

As most of our readers know, we embarked on a journey southward. We moved to the southern sector of Arkansas and are equidistant to places like Dallas, Houston, New Orleans, and Jackson, Mississippi. As a result, there are a number of new chains that we simply did not have (or were not close to us) when we still lived in Ohio. On the Border is one of these. About fifty miles up the road in Texarkana, TX, there is a location that we always passed as we go to our local mall. Being curious about the company as we always see their products in our local supermarkets, we decided to pick up dinner there one night. Continue reading “On the Border (Texarkana, TX)”

Perot Museum of Nature and Science (Dallas / Ft. Worth, TX)

Over the course of the last decade, the wife and I have made it a point to check out the natural history museums in any sort of location we are actively visiting. This means that we have been to natural history museums in places like Buffalo and Cleveland that could use a bit of updating. We had just moved down to the Dallas / Ft. Worth area and were fortunate enough to be invited to the Perot Museum of Nature and Science. The museum is incredibly well kept up and contains a number of attractions through its five floors that will keep individuals of all ages interested. The division of the floors into different segments of science ensures that one will keep their interest level high from beginning to end. The natural history floor which will be most attendee’s first experience with the Perot showcases the sheer amount of different animals and plants that are available.

Legoland Discovery Center (Dallas/Fort Worth)

Long-time readers of NeuFutur will know that we have moved down from  Ohio to Arkansas in the last few months. After settling in to our new city, we decided to go to the Dallas area for some much-needed rest and relaxation. As a couple with a two-year-old daughter, the amount of attractions that we can visit is fairly limited. We found out that Lego had an attract – the Legoland Discovery Center – that is located in the Grapevine Mills mall. Continue reading “Legoland Discovery Center (Dallas/Fort Worth)”

Stopping by Flying Heart Brewery (Bossier, LA)

We just settled down in the Ark-La-Tex a few weeks ago, and have stopped by a few Bossier/Shreveport breweries. Flying Heart was particularly popping on the weekend, and we decided to settle in and try a few of their efforts. While they had just cashed their Milk Maid Stout, we had a chance to try our their porter, Barrel 52. Pouring with a dark brown to nearly-blackish coloration and little in the way of a head, Barrel 52 was formidable, full of flavor, and stood up to crazy hot temperatures like a champ. Barrel 52 possessed hints of chocolate, coffee, and a good amount of toasted malt; while there was a bit of sweetness to this brew, it was moderated nicely by the bit of bitterness present. By pegging Barrel 52 at a 7.4% ABV, Flying Heart has ensured that the beer has a bit more complex of a flavor profile than many of the 5-6% ABV porters we’ve had over the years. Continue reading “Stopping by Flying Heart Brewery (Bossier, LA)”

Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh

We had our first long, multi-day trips out with our daughter in late August and had a tremendous time while doing so. The Oglebay Resort catered to her every whim while we went to Primanti Brothers down on the Strip. Before we left the area we stopped by the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh; the museum is located close to PNC Park and is an easy destination to get to if you are lodging anywhere near the Pittsburgh downtown area. Continue reading “Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh”

Chuck E. Cheese’s (Akron, Ohio)

We were invited to try out the Chuck E. Cheese’s location on West Market Street in Akron, Ohio. Previously I had not been in a Chuck E. Cheese’s location for the better part of 20 years so I was a little unsure of what there was to expect from the pizza-cum-arcade location. Upon arriving we put in our order and picked out a booth for our family. I had thought that Chuck E. Cheese’s was a pizza only establishment but the company has a variety of different wings, sandwiches, and other side dishes that it offers as well. Continue reading “Chuck E. Cheese’s (Akron, Ohio)”
