  • There's More Than Just Fresh Made Fudge To Explore While Visiting Uranus On A Guys Trip

    It was a hot and humid day while driving back to Michigan from San Diego this past summer and I'd passed mile after mile of Route 66 attractions without taking a moment to stop for a break. I was on a mission to deliver a car-load of booze across country and keep it as temperature controlled as I could. In a way I felt a bit like a smuggler in one of those space games I used to play... Then I discovered that I was going to be driving right by the world famous Uranus Fudge Factory... I knew I had to stop. If for nothing else, I figured it was worth a laugh to tell Heather and Jim that I stopped to get some fresh fudge from Uranus.

  • 10 Unexpected Wine Regions In The US That Guys Love To Visit

    Most guys who are new to wine think of iconic destinations like Napa and Sonoma as the places to go for wine. While I am a huge fan of California wines... the reality is that there are great wine regions all over the country. Some such as Lake Michigan Shore have gained prominence in recent years, while others such as the Snake River Valley AVA just west of Boise are lesser-known. What's great about these "undiscovered wine country" getaways is that they tend to be less expensive, more relaxed, and offer other opportunities to build a perfect getaway without making wine the singular focus.
