  • Explore The Secrets of Tequila at CasaMagna Puerto Vallarta

    Just in case you needed another excuse to play in the sun down in Puerto Vallarta, the CasaMagna Marriott sends word that they have launched a new tequila appreciation program titled Secretos de la Familia and they are one of the few resorts in the world where agave azul is actually grown on the grounds and used for making their very own tequila.

    According to the General Manager, the resort boasts an enormous library of this spirit including 114 tequilas regularly available by the glass and a Tequila Sommelier who hosts regular tasting classes for the guests.

  • Wrigley Field South - Cubs Park Spring Training Baseball in Mesa AZ

    While the Cubs are the perennial underdogs, having not won a World Series in over 100 years, their home in Chicago is one of the most iconic sports stadiums in the whole world. In previous years, the Cubs have played at Hohokam Stadium, shared with the Oakland A's but this year they opened up the season at their very own stadium "Cubs Park", affectionately referred to as "Wrigley Field South".

    As someone who has enjoyed numerous games at Wrigley I can say that even though it is someone that should be on the bucket list for any sorts fan, the park is an absolute dump. From obstructed views to cramped bathrooms and nets installed to keep concrete from falling on people's heads it is one of those places that should probably just be shut down - if it wasn't for the antique charm and sense of history that radiates from every square inch of the facility.

  • Guys Weekend at Talking Stick Resort & Casino

    Scottsdale Arizona is a fantastic destination for a mancation and while we visited here for Cactus League Spring Training - especially since it is right next to Salt River Fields, it is a solid year-round destination.

    There is obviously no shortage of world-class resorts in Scottsdale, Arizona and so it might be tough to decide which one will be the perfect spot for your next mancation.

    Talking stick is a 4 diamond casino resort that has an on-property golf course, walking distance to the latest Top Golf location, an entertainment venue with acts ranging from Rob Thomas and Collective Soul to Dennis Miller and Tim Allen. It is also home to the Arizona State Poker Championship and if that isn't enough - even cool enough that even NFL Players want to take their buddies here for a round of golf as I found out during a twitter conversation with Philadelphia Eagles veteran,Mark McMillian.

  • Cactus League Spring Training Guide

  • A Day Aboard Costa Deliziosa

    As a cruise ship junkie I was thrilled for the opportunity to spend even a few hours aboard a ship that normally doesn't operate in the United States. Costa Crociere is an Italian cruise line that while the first to operate in the Caribbean is now working to rise to the attention of the North American travel market. The Costa Deliziosa in particular does an annual around the world tour and that's why she happened to stop in San Diego and give us the opportunity to check her out.

  • Carnival Miracle Cruise Review

    While Caribbean cruising may be king, the west coast of Mexico also offers some exciting opportunities for fun as well.

  • Lads Holiday Vacation Ideas In Nice France

    Visiting the "South of France" is sort of the epitome of the ultimate romantic getaway, but what about a getaway with the guys? Recently we had the chance to meet with some folks from the France Tourism Development Agency and we were impressed by just how much stuff there is to do year round in Nice and within a quick drive of downtown.

  • A Food Tour of Ensenada Mexico

    header-image-ensenada-logoThis was my first time visiting the west coast of Mexico so I wasn't really sure what to expect - and frankly all you hear these days about the Pacific coast is about how dangerous it is. While that may be true in spots, during a recent tour of Ensenada Mexico I found it a very fun and unusual, with more to do than a frankly was expecting.

    Unlike the Caribbean cruise ports I am used to, Ensenada is a real town with people that lead real lives and aren't just there to look pretty and offer excursions to rich American tourists. However there is some of that too, though it was more like visiting a regular city vs a sanitized "made for tourists" experience.

  • Golden Princess Pacific Coastal Cruise Review

    There's more to cruising than the big three - (Carnival, Royal, and NCL) and I have been wanting to try Princess for quite a while, but never had the opportunity. Last month, we took a quick weekend escape out of Los Angeles on the Golden Princess and finally got to experience what it means to "Escape Completely".

    The Golden Princess is a grand class ship, measuring 109,000 gross tons and carrying 2,600 passengers (double occupancy) plus 1,100 crew members.

    Princess launched Golden in 2001, but retrofitted the ship in 2009.

  • The Great Horror Campout

    header-image-logoIt's almost halloween but that doesn't mean that horror season is almost over. In fact, one of the coolest and freakiest events I have ever come across is still a few months away!

    The Great Horror Campout is held every year in the Los Angeles State Historic Park and it certainly takes "camping" to a completely new level!

  • JW Marriott Denver Metro Man’s Getaway

    header-jw-marriot-denver-logoEvery man deserves some good old fashioned guy bonding time and Denver is a great spot for that. With a great airport, and plenty of fresh air and year-round sports activity it is hard to go wrong here.

    What you may not know is that Denver itself is a world class city prepared to entertain gentlemen that have moved beyond cheap draft beer and hot dogs. Instead, the JW Marriott Denver Cherry Creek is inviting men who have moved on from those days to indulge in a vacation replete with smooth whiskey and a decadent dinner with their new Metro Man’s Getaway.
