Daytripping to Shreveport Louisiana

I drove a few hours just this last Sunday. The temperature was fantastic. The sky was clear, but after a few hours of being on the road, I started to get a massive headache. This seems to happen once every year or so. What happens is that I get enough sun that I start getting a day-long, severe sort of migraine. Surprisingly, it’s due to all the sun that gets…

Corrientes 348 (Dallas, Texas)

We were fortunate enough to watch Umphrey’s McGee a few months back at the House of Blues in Dallas, but part of the reason that the trip was so memorable was the dinner we picked up immediately before that. We stopped by Corrientes 348 (1807 Ross Ave, Dallas Texas 75201) to set the night off right. This Argentinian steakhouse has a deep menu that has authentic Argentinian cuisine as its…

Fogo De Chao (Denver, CO)

Our first night in Denver, we were lucky enough to be invited downtown to Fogo De Chao, a Brazilian steakhouse buffet. The restaurant is in a fairly non-descript building downtown, but opens up into something ornately appointed as soon as one enters. We were greeted and sat in short order, and our drink order was taken. I decided on their Brazilian Gentleman, a cocktail that utilized Knob Creek as its base.…

Uncle Billy’s Smokehouse

We were fortunate enough to take a trip down to Austin a few months back, and finally had a moment to provide NeuFutur with our impressions about this ATX institution. Uncle Billy’s has something for everyone, whether it be live music, a comfortable place to hang out, tremendous variation in their menu, or a collection of alcoholic beverages that mix up standard beer styles and do the classics well. The…

Things You Should Not Forget When You are Going on a Beach Trip

As the long holiday season has made it is marked and the mercury has dropped below freezing points, many people are planning to fly out to tropical destinations. It is one of the best decisions that you can make at this time of the year when there is nothing much to do around other than enjoying a pizza and probably a steaming bug of coffee by the fireplace. There can…

Stopping by the Kemah Boardwalk

About a year ago, we received the CityPASS ($62) for Houston, Texas. We were able to hit up a number of different attractions, including the Houston Space Center and the Aquarium. Our most favorite part of the trip had to be our visit to the Kemah Boardwalk. While it was still a bit on the chilly and windy side of things (our visit was in February), there were still enough…

Rebecca Creek Saloon (Arlington, Texas)

The Rebecca Creek Saloon is the newest addition to the Globe Life Stadium in Arlington, Texas.  We were lucky enough too be invited in for dinner and a game. This night, the Rangers faced the Oakland Athletics. The stadium was massive and airy, ensuring that the 15,000+  in attendance did not feel crowded. A similar sort of ambiance was present in the saloon. Tall ceilings and tasteful design will immediately…

Stopping by Strange Craft Beer Company (Denver, CO)

While we have had beers sent our way for NeuFutur nearly a decade now, actually visiting breweries is a fairly new frontier for us. Luckily, we were able to join up with Emily from RadCraft to see what was going on at Strange Craft Brewery. Head brewer Tyler Bies has crafted a considerably wide collection of efforts available both year-round and seasonally in the Denver area.

Ocean Prime Denver, new American done right

While we were in the Denver area, we had a moment during the afternoon to visit the city’s Ocean Prime location (a second location will be opening later this fall). We were able to drop off our car at the valet without much in the way of hassle – Larimer, the street that the restaurant was on, was busy but the restaurant had placed the valet corral front and center…

Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurant (Cincinnati, Ohio)

Interior While the lot for the Cincinnati location of Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurant was full to capacity, we were astonished at how spacious the location was. After confirming our reservation, we were brought back to the main dining room. Lower lights made for a cozy experience.
