Drowning my writing sorrows in a big bowl of pho at Pho and Beyond
Shit, August is almost over. What have I done this year? Answer: not enough. For a little more than a year, I’ve been trying to do the full-time writer thing. To be perfectly frank, I spend a lot more time looking up petty YouTuber drama and doom-scrolling than actually fucking writing. I don’t know why I waste so much time. Is it because I’m afraid that I will fail at being a full-time writer even if I put in full-time hours? Do I procrastinate and bullshit around a lot so that if I end up failing as a writer, I can at least tell myself, Oh, I didn’t work hard enough, but if I did, I might have succeeded? But if I gave it my all and put in 60-plus hours a week every week and still ended up failing, I would have to tell myself that I simply do not have the fucking goods. And fuck, if I can’t make it as a writer, then what the fuck can I do? Go back to a soulless office job and wait for the sweet release of retirement (or death because honestly, are millennials going to be able to retire and avoid the fate of working until our stressed hearts stop beating)?
Eating Good in Portland, ME
If there's any place I daydream about moving to, Portland, Maine is high as hell on the list. Thankfully I'm close enough to take weekend trips to visit friends - and to say the food there is incredible is the biggest understatement. I'm a sucker for a small city with cute shops and unique food, and Portland hits those nails right on the head. If you're a foodie in any sense of the term, you've gotta check it out, if not only for an afternoon of restaurant hopping! Out of the handful of times I've been up there recently, I already have my favorite spots: read on and enjoy!
BBQ Southern made
Just looking at their website has this transplant to Atlanta, Georgia just a little homesick. Country’s has been a hangout for my family and friends through all my life memories, adventures, heartaches, joys and more.
Eating Avocado Toast Like the Millennial I Am at Sips & Such
Does anyone remember that rich Australian real estate dude who said that we millennials can’t buy houses because we spend too much money on avocado toast and lattes? Every time I eat avocado toast and drink a latte, I get a real petty satisfaction and think, Screw you, rich Australian real estate dude. Also, by the way, if I went without avocado toast or lattes for a year, do you know how much money I would save? Like, maybe 300 dollars. Not enough for a month of rent, let alone a down payment on a freaking house.

The City of Los Angeles
I moved to the city of Los Angeles in March of 2020 just as the pandemic started to take hold of the entire world. Date nights for my man and I turned into living room picnics of local take-out, homemade cocktails, and live virtual concerts. Such a treat in this city, in the lap of luxury, where every kind of cuisine is available top-notch.
Where do you get your Chicken Wings?
In New York, there is often a discussion as to what makes someone a real New Yorker. Some people use the measurement of time. They've lived in New York for X number of years, they only go out on weeknights, and their bartender attended or will attend their wedding. The first-name basis with your pizza guy and the ability to not pay until later at the local bodega when you forget your wallet could be a decent measure of New Yorker status as well. I won't dismiss those points, they could be an accurate measure to some, but they are not mine. Mine is where you think the best chicken wings are and Dallas BBQ is the answer.
Sushi, Music and Merlot!
On a lovely sunny day in Asheville, North Carolina, as I was playing music for people walking up and down the sidewalks of our beautiful downtown, a long-time acquaintance came by and tipped me, but this time he stood by and listened a bit longer than usual. Nick was wearing a fashion mask even though normally he had those typical blue ones on at times in the past when he had come by to listen, but this one mask tonight had art image of a guitar and music notes on it, and I could sense he wanted to ask me something. After I finished my song which happened to be titled, “Something in your eyes” I decided to take a small pause and so he asked if by any chance I wanted to grab some sushi with him after I am done busking. As he glanced into my eyes, he said.

I’ll Make You Drool In Seconds With These Top Jersey Restaurants
I’ve been living in New Jersey (known as the garden state) for nearly 7 years now. I remember first coming to New Jersey from my hometown Philadelphia, Pennsylvania as a newbie seeing nothing but the southern side of things. All it takes is one glance to see tons of farms filled with cows, chickens, and goats everywhere. I didn’t know much about the best food places and where to really eat. The food didn’t taste the greatest compared to delicious city food. I went from living in a big city filled with eateries to living in a tiny town with minimum food selections.
There's No Place Like Logan's Place
Growing up in a small town has it’s staples. Everyone knows everyone, there’s team comradery for the local high school, a church on every corner and of course, the local eatery. Having grown up in the small Texas town that I’ve now relocated back to, I look back and realize I didn’t appreciate it as much as I do now. The local restaurant that is now the “it” place in town is new, but it has absolutely established itself as the new place to be.
