  • Art, Food, and Entertainment on a Bellagio Vegas Mancation

    Picking the right resort for your Vegas mancation or guys getaway is essential. At first glance, you might think that it's "just a hotel" but the more trips here that you make, the more you realized that the choice of resorts truely sets the tone for your whole trip. In the case of Bellagio, that tone is one of more reserved fun and luxury including innovative restaurants, art galleries, and entertainment ranging from the fountains out front to one of the best Cirque Du Soleil shows in town!

  • Here's Where You Can Tour Motorhome and RV Factories

    It's pretty exciting to visit factories and see how things are built. Today, industrial-tourism is a big business and that ranges from visiting auto manufacturing plants to breweries. However, what about visiting an RV or Campervan factory? That might be a perfect twist on your same ol' vacation that could turn it into a memorable experience where you might even learn something!

  • How To Make the Right Snack Choices In Your Office Breakroom

    The office break room is hell for anyone looking to make smart choices. While things have gotten better over the years, this can still be a black hole of pastries and sugar-filled coffee drinks, pop, and other treats that are best avoided. However, with a bit of willpower, you can stay strong, happy, and healthy despite how tempting it might be to cheat.

  • What We Saw At The Chicago Auto Show (and some things we didn't)

    At this year’s 110th edition of the Chicago Auto Show, the buzz was all about trucks and SUVs as they continue to rack up record sales. Alternatively, almost every automaker touched on their autonomous vehicle programs, but no one will discuss when day zero will happen, or how autonomous vehicles will affect sales.

  • Park MGM Las Vegas Preview

    Las Vegas is constantly changing and it was pretty obvious a couple years ago when the T-Mobile Center opened that Monte Carlo's days were numbered. It simply didn't fit sandwiched between the fantastic new arena and The Park on one side and Aria on the other. Thankfully though, instead of imploding the towers and starting from scratch, they decided to transform it into an interesting and unique property. We got a quick tour of it during a press event last month, but I can't wait to come back and experience it as a guest sometime soon!

  • Interview with Paula Sanchez about Olives From Spain

    I absolutely love olives - black, pimento or cheese stuffed, in a martini, or crushed into a tapanade - they are simply delicious. While I knew that they were a Mediterranean treat, I didn't realize the percentage that come from Spain till I had the chance to chat with Paula Sanchez, responsible for promotion and marketing at Olives from Spain!

  • Who Are The Developers Behind Top Canadian Online Casino Games?

    Online casinos are a big business in Canada and unlike how we view them in the United States, it's not some shady guys hiding in the room in the Caribbean. There are some great software developers from around the world creating cool games that are fun to play. Some of the top ones include Microgaming, Playtech, and NetEnt but you might be more familiar with the game than the developer names. In a former life, I worked at a handful of computer and video game companies myself and sometimes it's easy to forget about the fact that there are real people "behind the screen". Let's change that...

  • We Took The 2018 GMC Sierra 2500 Denali HD on a Vegas Road Trip

    Trucks are clearly being used as more than just tools to haul and explore, and today that means that there are LOTS of great options out there. Last month, we got the chance to test out one of the best - GMC's 2018 Sierra 2500 Denali HD. Our route would be the five-hour road trip from San Diego to Vegas, plus a few detours! While I would have loved to test out the truck hauling some toys into the desert, this wasn't that kind of trip. Instead, we were looking for something that would look good pulling up to the valet and cruising the strip - but still be capable of cruising down some back roads through the desert.

  • Gear For Watching the Winter Games

    The winter games are coming up and so I know you guys are going to be tuning in to watch and cheer on the Americans (and maybe some other teams too?). The folks over at BabbleBoxx sent me a box of items that they recommend for watching the games and staying healthy and happy at the same time. This includes: popchips Peanut Butter nutter puffs, White Claw® Hard Seltzer, BEE & YOU Royal Jelly Raw Honey plus BEE & YOU Propolis Raw Honey Throat Spray, and last but certainly not least a PodPocket AirPods Holder.

  • How to Take Awesome Photos of the Moon

    Most people have looked up into the night sky and become enchanted by the moons beauty and thought about taking a photograph. Unfortunately for most of us, what's ultimately captured doesn't reflect what we saw with our eyes. However, that can change with the right equipment and a bit of patience to get the right shot. Whether it is a lunar eclipse, a full moon or something in between, the sight is breathtaking when you get it right!

  • Willows Adults Only Hotel and Spa At Viejas Casino Resort

    We were on hand this week for the opening of Willows Hotel & Spa, but I look forward to being able to return to fully experience the resort - especially the spa, pool deck, and restaurants on our own. However, from the brief time we did spend on property and our stay in one of their Escape Suites, this is the perfect destination for anyone in San Diego that is looking for a getaway where there will be no kids. It's the perfect distance from downtown, easy to get to, and delivers a full suite of luxury, spa, pool, food, and all the action you'd expect from a casino resort. Oh yeah, and there's also some of the best outlet shopping in San Diego. 

  • What Is Your Prostate and Why Is it Important

    Last month, I turned 41 years old and with many of my friends in our 40s now there are all sorts of new conversations that I once thought were only for "old people". Prostate health is one of those topics, but it really should be something that even younger guys are aware of beyond the dreaded "prostate exam" that can come as a surprise the first time your doctor decides to check it. Despite the uncomfortable nature of the conversation though, it's important that men of all ages consider the importance and a healthy prostate and do what we can to avoid and/or cope with prostate cancer. 

  • Buffalo Cauliflower Wing Bites

    Buffalo wings are one of the most popular snacks for football parties - or even just snacking anytime. However, they tend not to be very healthy. Even when grilled vs fried, there's a lot of fat in the chicken skins. As a healthy alternative though, why not try cauliflower instead? These Buffalo Cauliflower Wing Bites are not only a more healthy alternative to traditional wings but they taste great and provides an excellent source of vitamin C, vitamin K, folate, vitamin B6, dietary fiber, and omega-3 fatty acids among other nutrients.

  • Libertine Social Merges Near Perfect Cocktails, Food, and Creativity

    Las Vegas has some of the best bars and some of the best restaurants in the world but no matter how much talent and desire to be the best... most are good at one or the other, not both. During a visit last night to Libertine Social inside of Mandalay Bay, I was treated to an experience that frankly I wasn't expecting based on the relatively unassuming entrance.

  • Chill Out in Las Vegas at Minus5 Ice Bar

    Looking for a cool way to escape the Vegas heat? How about taking a break inside a bar that is essentially a block of ice chilled to -5 Centigrade (23 Fahrenheit)... Combine that with parkas or fur jackets and cocktail glasses molded from ice and you have quite an experience. Here's what to expect when you visit the Minus5 Experience Ice Bar at Mandalay Bay.

  • How To Pack Your Toiletry Kit For a Romantic Weekend Getaway

    All too often, I simply just throw a toothbrush and a few other items into my backpack and away I go for a quick trip. That works for a guys weekend, but when you are headed out somewhere fun with that special person in your life, it's important to put a bit more thought into packing. Here's some toiletry kit essentials that you need to pack to ensure the perfect romantic getaway.

  • Bitcoin Might be Down but These Shirts are Still Hot!

    You know something is more than just a niche trend when people start wanting to wear it on their shirts as a fashion statement. I guess you could say this is geek chic but I totally love what the guys over at CryptoRack$ are doing.

  • My Top Favorite Warren Miller Ski Films

    I woke up this morning and saw Warren Miller trending all over Twitter and Facebook only to find that he had passed away. His films inspired multiple generations with the groundbreaking adventure cinematography that mixed breathtaking visuals with fantastic humor. I suspect that even those that don't ski will enjoy his films as much as those that watched them and imagined that one day they too would be able to tackle ridiculously amazing landscapes like those show in his films. Here's some of my favorites to help celebrate his career as one of the best ski and sports filmmakers of all time.
