Travel Log: Arizona

2018-02-08 Dannielle 0

Wednesday, January 24 Day One in Arizona did not quite go as planned. Leaving Las Vegas was painless, checking in and getting through TSA was surprisingly quick, and everything seemed like it was going smoothly — that is, until we board the plane (as it goes) — and the pilots […]

Travel Log: Viva Las Vegas

2018-02-08 Dannielle 0

When the NHL decided to award Las Vegas an NHL franchise, I knew that was finally my excuse to make a visit out west and see the spectacle that is Sin City. I had never had any particular inclination to go to Las Vegas before (I’m not much of a […]

Travel Log: Cleveland (May 2017)

2017-06-07 Dannielle 0

Cleveland is one of those cities that kind of unfortunately (for them) gets a bad rap for a variety of reasons (the Browns, dirty river on fire, Drew Carey, etc.) and because I’m from Cincinnati, I must assert my in-state superiority complex by making fun of it relentlessly. To be […]

2016 Travel Log – Part II (Dallas)

2017-01-15 Dannielle 0

  One of my soft goals for each NHL season is to see my beloved Columbus Blue Jackets in a new arena. Before this season, in addition to their home arena, I had seen them in Nashville, Detroit, St. Louis (x5), Carolina (Raleigh), Tampa, Florida (Sunrise), and Washington. And for years, […]

2016 Travel Log – Part I

2016-12-28 Dannielle 0

I did a lot of traveling in 2016. For most of my adult life, little getaways have been a luxury that I embrace fully. Whether it’s jumping in the car to a spot a few hundred miles away for the weekend or hopping a plane to a place I’ve never […]

#JuddFest2016 – part the seventh [5/27]

2016-06-14 Dannielle 0

At last we have made it to the seventh and final [full] day of my trip. A travesty! I fell more in love with New Orleans than I already had been (although I’m certain I couldn’t live there, only visit). It’s a wonderful city and there really is so much […]

#JuddFest2016 – part the sixth! [5/27]

2016-06-13 Dannielle 0

On day six, we were up to nine (!) people, five of whom started the day a cooking/demo class at the School of Cooking. I took a pass on that, and instead the rest of us went out to Remoulade for lunch. It was a cute little place, but the service left […]

#JuddFest2016 – part the fifth [5/26]

2016-06-13 Dannielle 0

Day five saw two more members of our group arrive from Cincinnati (hi, Craig and Ashley!). Our first stop of the day was for lunch, where we walked from our hotel to the St. James Cheese Company. Who doesn’t love cheese? I was playing it safe again, and went with […]

#JuddFest2016 – part the fourth [5/25]

2016-06-13 Dannielle 0

As I suspected, it would take me forty-seven years to finish writing about my trip, but here I am back with more. Day four! A lot of our day was improvised, I think, but that was part of the charm. As any self-respecting tourist does, we started our day with […]

#JuddFest2016 – part the third [5/24]

2016-06-01 Dannielle 1

Tuesday, Tuesday, Tuesday! This was a big day for us full of food and endless quantities of swamp ass. New Orleans, amirite? We started with a jaunt along the riverwalk on the Mississippi River, and on down to the French Market. As tourists do, we made sure to stop in […]
