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.

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.

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)”

Visiting Primanti Bros. in Pittsburgh’s Strip District

We had visited a number of Primanti Bros locations in the past, including their stores in Cranberry Township, Pennsylvania as well as Youngstown, Ohio and had memorable visits each time. We were lucky enough to be invited to the original Primanti Bros location in Pittsburgh’s Strip District and were quite impressed with the overall experience. When you first go into the location you will be shocked at the overall level of business that is present. Continue reading “Visiting Primanti Bros. in Pittsburgh’s Strip District”

Oglebay, a family destination

The Oglebay Resort (Wheeling, West Virginia) has a number of distinct features that will interest all members of the family. Whether there for a night or for an extended stay, visitors will be challenged to exhaust all of the attractions and experiences that the property offers. Continue reading “Oglebay, a family destination”

BurgerFi (Cuyahoga Falls, OH)

We had an opportunity to stop at BurgerFi, one of the main tenants that have sprung up by the Giant Eagle Market District in the Cuyahoga Falls neighborhood of Akron, Ohio. We were treated to quick service, large portions, and a hands-on owner that made our experience a delightful one.  Continue reading “BurgerFi (Cuyahoga Falls, OH)”

Joovy Zoom 360 Jogging Stroller

We have operated our health and fitness section at NeuFutur for a number o fyears but have not had a product that is equally able to benefit younger and older members of the family. While a great many strollers make it possible to bring young children on longer or more remote journeys, a number of them require that parents or caretakers have to take a more leisurely pace. Joovy has created a stroller – their ultralight Zoom 360 – that allows one the chance to exercise while bringing their children along. Continue reading “Joovy Zoom 360 Jogging Stroller”

A Night at a Mansion: the Glidden House

Long-time readers of NeuFutur will notice that our coverage has changed over the years. We initially began as a music magazine, expanded into movies, and gradually added health and fitness and travel sections in the last few years. The wife and I had our first child, and as a result, the type of material that we covered has changed again. We were invited to a Cleveland institution, the Glidden House, and were impressed at how good service made for any hiccups regarding our children disappear. Continue reading “A Night at a Mansion: the Glidden House”

BiBiBop Asian Grill

We do not nearly make it to Korean restaurants often enough, but I always make it a point to pick up a bowl of bibimbap when we do visit. A new chain – BiBiBop Asian Grill – came to our attention a few months back that seeks to make the dish (and Korean cuisine) more known to the dining public of the Columbus, Ohio area. We were invited to evaluate their Henderson (1836 W. Henderson Rd; Mon-Thu 11am-9pm  Fri-Sat 11am-10pm Sun 11am-7pm) location. While the resulting dishes are pretty different from what one will get at a traditional Korean restaurant, we were pleased at the amount of customization and overall flavor profiles of the bowls that the restaurant offers.
