  • Cleveland Mancation - Beer, Sports, and Manly Food

    Cleveland is a great town - yes, it is also the "mistake on the lake" and the place where a river caught fire years ago. Don't let that deter you though, this town really has a TON of stuff for an ultimate guys weekend or mancation. While my wife is from Cleveland and I drive by / through the area on a fairly regular basis, I really had no idea exactly how much cool stuff for guys this town has - and we touched only a small part of it during our tour hosted by Positively Cleveland.

  • Indy Racing Experience: My Ride With Arie

    Just imagine being given a ride in an Indy racing car by a guy who’s won two Indy 500s.

    We arrived at Chicagoland Speedway at 12:30 p.m. and I went to the Credentials trailer.  I showed my picture ID and was handed three pages of legal paperwork and various waivers of liability to read and sign. I was already wondering if maybe I was in for more of a thrill than I bargained for.

  • Tequila Tasting Lessons with Casa Noble's Jose Hermosillo

    We've looked at rums, whiskies, and even vodka over the past few months, but one fantastic spirit has escaped us. That of course, is tequila. Part of my reluctance to embrace tequila was that my familiarity with it was shaped primarily by experiences during college and spring break type situations where tequila was cheap, plentiful and tasted like shit.

  • Secrets Wild Orchid Montego Bay Review

    Fresh back from a stay at Secrets Wild Orchid Montego Bay, I have mixed reviews. The Preferred Club has all the foundations for a wonderful, romantic get-away, but the newly opened resort is still a bit rough.

    Our first impression was WOW! My husband and I were greeted immediately from our taxi with warm hospitality. We were whisked away from the main entrance via golf-cart to registration, offered a glass of bubbly and a cold towel to refresh ourselves. By the time we were led to our swim-out Jr. suite, we really felt like VIPs.

  • Kensington Antarctica Adventure Mancation

    It's the middle of summer for most of you, but Kensington Antarctica has a great idea for a way to cool down - way down! While most Antarctica expeditions consist primarily of just a couple hours (or less) while your ship sits within eye shot, Kensington Antarctica offers you a chance to go ice climbing, abseiling into crevasses, go 4-wheeling on the ice to a science base, and even fly all the way to the South Pole.

  • Boyd Mountain Cabins Review in Haywood County

    Last month, Heather and I had a chance to visit Haywood County, NC and stayed at Boyd Mountain Cabins. For those of you who have never heard of Haywood County, it is located in North Carolina's Smoky Mountains, just off of I-40 and only a few hours from all the major cities of the South East. It is also a very easy drive from most places in the Midwest. The collection of seven different cabins plucked from locations all over North Carolina, have been restored, refined, and brought up to date will all the modern conveniences you would expect for a romantic weekend together - including a full kitchen, heat and central air, comfortable beds, rocking chairs on the porches and more.

    This isn't a "luxury cabin rental", but it had everything we were looking for. If you are looking to get away from it all by relaxing in the middle of North Carolina's Smoky Mountains, there aren't many better ways to do it!
