Eating My Way Around Oklahoma City in 6 Bites

Food has always been an important part of the travel experience, that’s nothing new. What is somewhat new is the ability to find creative and delicious cuisine almost anywhere you go, not just in the world’s major cities. This culinary shift has also deeply impacted Oklahoma City, a fact I learned during a recent visit. I was there to properly experience the city, which I had driven through on my trip along Route 66 and for me, food was an important part of that second visit. There weren’t ...

Smartphones and Their Effect on Guest Behavior | By Binu Mathews

Smartphones are everywhere. Walk into any coffee shop, restaurant, or hotel lobby, and a high percentage of people engaged with their smartphone will be directly affected by the application they are reviewing. As consumers, we now look to our smartphones to converse with friends, purchase items online, look at a myriad of pictures, and yes, sometimes, to talk to another person.

LGBTQ travel in Salt Lake City

Salt Lake City is queer — and not just in the “Donny Osmond singing and dancing in a rainbow-colored coat” kind of way. It’s queer because it defies simple categorization. Although there are 1.2 million residents, SLC feels like a small town where everybody knows your name. In the height of summer, you can burn in the brown desert hills of downtown only to freeze by piles of snow in the verdant Wasatch Mountains 45 minutes away. Most importantly, Salt Lake City is both a conservative Mormon m...

Park City, Utah, best things to do

There’s nothing worse than being on a ski vacation and having absolutely no interest in skiing. Ok, maybe not nothing worse, especially if you enjoy spending entire days inside a snowy condo with a good book. But should you want to get outside and explore, sometimes it seems ski towns really don’t offer much outside of eating, drinking, and… skiing. This is not the case, however, in Park City, Utah. The home of the famous Sundance Film Festival is also home to some fascinating history, unique...

Cheese rinds are safe to eat

When I have friends over, I set out a cheese plate. It’s a non-negotiable addition to every social gathering. We sit, we snack, and we drink wine. And, inevitably, a small plate ends up littered with discarded rinds. There’s hardly a more tragic — or more common — sight at the dinner table than a little pile of half-nibbled cheese bark, destined for the garbage can. Maybe it’s the waxy texture. Maybe it’s the belief that many foods need to be peeled before they can be safely eaten. Well, hav...
