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.

Oskar Blues Grill & Brew – Denver

Oskar Blues has constantly helped our beer review section grow over the years, allowing us to enjoy a variety of their brews, including their IPA, Chubna, Death By Coconut, Hotbox Coffee Porter and Pinner. We were able to stop in to their new location during our trip to the Denver area. As soon as we walked in the door, we marveled at the decorations and polish of the bar, tables,…

Something for the kids (and adults): Children’s Museum of Denver

Before we moved to Arkansas, we were fortunate enough to stop by the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh. Our daughter was a little bit on the young side at that point, so she was unable to properly get into some of the exhibits. While she was a bit older for our visit to the Little Rock Museum of Discovery, there were still a few things that she was unable to enjoy.…

Dion’s, great pizza at a fantastic price

Part of the fun that we have when going out on the road for NeuFutur has to be the variety of restaurant chains that we have the opportunity to visit. On our way back from Denver, Colorado, we had a pretty length return ahead of us. After a particularly daunting drive through New Mexico, we finally got into Texas and had a chance to stop at the Lubbock, Texas location…

Hopdoddy (Houston, TX), a great bite before a show

We had a big night ahead of us – we made the five hour-plus journey from our house in SW Arkansas to the River Oaks District in Houston. We stopped by Hopdoddy Burger Bar to fuel up before Chromeo began their set. A trio of offerings – Space CiTEA, an alcoholic drink, Hopdoddy’s storied Green Chili Queso Fries, and the luxurious Buffalo Bill cheeseburger.

Smoothie King for Summer Bodies (Shreveport, LA)

We take a number of trips here at NeuFutur, and there are times where we are on the road and are not feeling snack foods. Perhaps we’ve been on the road for an hour or two and we wouldn’t quite be ready for a full meal at that point. Typically, we make a sub-par decision and eat badly. However, with the summer rapidly coming up, getting back into some semblance…

Little Rock’s Museum of Discovery a good way to wind down a day

When our daughter was about a year old, we were invited over to the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh. While there were a few attractions for her to visit, we felt as if she was not developed enough to enjoy many of the exhibits. Over our move down south and the intervening months, she has hit a number of developmental milestones. We decided to visit the Museum of Discovery in Little…

N’Awlins Arkansas (Jonesboro, AR)

We were able to stop in Jonesboro, Arkansas for a precious few days earlier in 2018 and had the opportunity to stop at a restaurant, N’Awlins Arkansas, that is crafting some food that is simultaneously reverent of the time-tested Cajun and Creole approach while ultimately being expression of John and Glin Miller’s own unique cooking style.

The National WWII Museum a world-class trip

We were lucky enough to make it down to the New Orleans area a few months back and were able to see the Superdome, Bourbon Streets, and the French Quarter. Something we were not tremendously familiar with before our trip was the National WWII Museum. We were lucky enough to be invited into the museum before we began our trip back to SW Arkansas.
