St. Patrick’s Day parades in the US

Admittedly, it’s fun to get out and slosh yourself silly in green beer on St. Patrick’s Day. And in some cities — like Chicago, New York, and Boston — you’ll find millions of people who agree with you crowding the streets for the rowdiest St. Paddy’s parties of the year. The problem, of course, is that most of those people had Guinness for breakfast too, so by parade time things can get a little… sloppy. There are, however, smaller destinations around the country with celebrations that are ju...

Flying as a Gold Elite on American Isn’t Anything Special (Trip Report)

As you know, last month was the annual American Leadership Conference, and once again I was invited as a member of the media. This would be my first flights since being gifted entry-level Gold elite status through May 15 (along with everyone and their mother, apparently), and I was looking forward to seeing the difference between that and traveling as a peon. As any Gold elite already knows, it really wasn’t much different. It certainly hasn’t made me any more interested in actually earning st...

A Bit of Texas in Paris

We had lunch at a place in Paris called The Beast. It’s owned by a Frenchman, Tom Abramowicz, who attended a school in New York. His roommate was from Blanco, Texas and when the Frenchman went to his home on a break, he was introduced to barbecue at the famous Salt Lick near Austin, Texas which is one of my personal favorite places.
