Elevation Burger (3365 Washtenaw Avenue, Ann Arbor, MI)

We were in the Detroit area and thought driving the hour or so to the Ann Arbor area would be a good day trip from the Motor City. While in Ann Arbor, we stopped at Elevation Burger on Washtenaw Avenue. We had an experience that was memorable and have found a new chain to hit up whenever we are in that quadrant of Michigan.

City Barbeque (Columbus, Ohio)

We visited the City Barbeque in the Polaris area (8491 Sancus Blvd, Columbus, OH) a few days back and had a stellar meal. The company has a number of distinct menu options to ensure that individuals have a meal that will far outstrip the offerings of any other fast-food or sit-down restaurant around.

Bonefish Grill – In + On Bar Bites

Bonefish Grill has added a number of offerings to their menu with their In + On Bar Bites promotion. Taken together, these small plates are the perfect way for an individual (or a party) to taste the wide variety of Bonefish Grille’s specialties, all without breaking the bank. Bonefish’s take on a Moscow Mule, The Mule ($7.5) ties together a strong, assertive ginger element with a more moderate mint element. The drink utilizes locally sourced ginger beer to provide a refreshing zip. Continue reading “Bonefish Grill – In + On Bar Bites”

Tocolo Cantina Review

We were able to sit down and experience Tocolo Cantina in Garden City, New York and had a fulfilling experience. The restaurant prides itself in providing a new sheen to Mexican fare, to break customer’s minds from the boring and drab offerings of many local Mexican stops. The restaurant is able to have an expansive menu with prices that are incredibly approachable. Tocolo Cantina’s tacos are where they shine the brightest. The queso fresco present in the lamb taco imparts some bright freshness to the dish. Continue reading “Tocolo Cantina Review”

zPizza – 5060 N. High Street, Columbus, Ohio 43214

We were lucky enough to stop by a zPizza location in Columbus, Ohio and ordered the company’s Casablanca pizza. The offering contains mushrooms, artichoke hearts, and ricotta cheese alongside roasted garlic sauce and an additional amount of Parmesan. The restaurant was clean and the wait staff was extremely friendly. We put in our order and were pleasantly surprised to receive it no more than 10 or 15 minutes after finding a table. The pizza was piping hot and the ingredients were at the peak of their prime. This meant that the artichoke hearts had a little snap to them without being floppy or overly greasy while the mushrooms seemed more fresh than they are at a variety of pizza places. There was more than enough pizza for a couple and it was able to be refreshed by throwing it in the oven for a few minutes. Continue reading “zPizza – 5060 N. High Street, Columbus, Ohio 43214”

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is one of the most visible and well known attractions on Lake Erie in Cleveland, Ohio. The Hall of Fame is jam-packed with ephemera from the last century of popular music. While rock musicians are given the lion’s share of attention at the museum, there are antiques, costumes, instruments and a bevy of other items from gospel, rap, and EDM artists. What results with the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is an attraction that will take a number of hours to complete. Continue reading “Rock and Roll Hall of Fame”

Outback Steakhouse – Akron, Ohio

We were lucky enough to be invited to the Outback Steakhouse in Akron Ohio. We are pleased to say that the experience that we had at the restaurant was amazing. When we entered it was only a few minute wait before we received our table – the person at the front was extremely hospitable. After we sat down it was only another few brief moments before our waiter for the night took our drink orders and put in our request for a bloomin’ onion. We were surprised at how rapidly we first received our drinks and then received the aforementioned onion. We were able to have a few brief minutes of discussion before our entrees were delivered to our table. Continue reading “Outback Steakhouse – Akron, Ohio”

Cyclops Rechargeable Revo 900 LED Hand Held Spotlight

We were able to go camping for the first time in my life a few months ago and everything seemed to be great. The one thing that we did not anticipate was to have a flashlight or other light emitting source. This meant that whenever we went to the bathroom or had to conduct any business between different tents we were quite literally in the dark. Sure, most current generation smartphones have a flashlight application but the lights that they provide is very weak, the app may contain spyware, and is not able to illuminate pitch black conditions. We received a Revo 900 lantern from Cyclops yesterday and are pleased to announce that it is able to charge up in the space of a few hours. The lantern created 935 lumens for up to 68 minutes of burn time, due to the two Luxeon LED’s in the front of the spotlight. Continue reading “Cyclops Rechargeable Revo 900 LED Hand Held Spotlight”

Grand Trunk Uinta 4-Person Tent

Throughout all my youth, I never went on any camping excursions. I was always more of a fan of staying inside and playing on the computer – something that I still enjoy. We went to the Midwest reggae fest a few months ago and required a tent for the extended festival duration. The actual day that we went the weather was incredibly bad – the ground was squishy, the rain would not stop, and there was a little bit of a chill in the air. When we first got to the festival we had the tent in the bag in which it came. We were able to remove the tent in the car but still needed to go and unfurl it to set it up before we can use it for shelter; we had expected to take 30 to 40 minutes to set up the came and to get slightly soaked in the process.
