9008731888?profile=originalPreparing the first chapter of our new e-book, Golden State Eating, we did much first hand research. It's a tough job...I know...hitting bars from Sacramento to San Diego, searching for the perfect margarita, but someone's got to do it.

Along the way, we've had some pretty unspectacular versions. I swear, the one we had at a nationally famous rib joint had to have been poured from a bottle of pre-made Jose Cuervo Margarita bought at the local supermarket. Another one, a high-end restaurant overlo

Gay Travel Germany: Suds und Sex in Gay Munich

It's that time of year again - Oktoberfest (aka Wiesn) is right around the corner (September 22-October 7; next year it's 9/21-10/6)!  But even if you don't make it for the world's biggest beer bash, Munich is still one of Europe's most attractive and fun cities, where autumn is lovely and even winter is a winner, especially during its world-famous Weihnachtsmarkt (Christmas market) November 26 through December 24 - magical enough to get even a jaded Grinch like me grinning. And get this — Muc’

The 'Brown Bars' of the Netherlands & Belgium


 ‘Our ceilings are a fetching shade of old gold as a result of the millions of cigarettes which have been smoked on the premises since they were last painted white, and there is something homely and almost comforting about the smell of stale smoke …’

George East A Year Behind Bars.


I’m probably the worst kind of non-smoker … the ‘crusading ex-smoker’. That’s the kind of guy who, having successfully forsworn the Evil Weed, tries to persuade those around him to do the same. So, I’m probably the las

When the Pacific Ocean recedes from the long coastline of this stretch of the Nicoya PeninsulaPlaya Carmen, Playa Santa Teresa and Playa Hermosa – the setting sun reflects its fiery colors in millions of little tide pools in the exposed reef and turns the white sand rosy pink.

Do's and Dont's of Barcelona Nightlife

Do dress properly for the clubs: guys no soccer jerseys, open toed shoes, or tennis shoes.

Don’t get rejected at club OSHUM and try to find other ways in.  This includes one or more actions we did: climbing over a big fence around back, climbing a ladder to the roof and then into the attic, and eventually running into the club through the kitchen… despite what made a great story, we still didn’t last more than 10 minutes in the club

Do plan accordingly for your bills.  Barcelona can be expensive a

Sleeping in a 17th-Century London Pub

George and Dragon - Facade close up at night

Let’s face it, the internet has created a whole new world of travel opportunities, and has made making new friends over a computer entirely possible. Social media has taken over the travel world, and meeting new travel friends has never been easier. Recently, on my annual trip to London, I was given a most unique opportunity to meet an acquaintance that I had only met on-line, and to take a room in a historic 17th century building.

Every November, I head to London for the world’s second largest t

Some of England's Coziest Coastal Pubs

Going to the pub is one of the pleasures of a visit to the English seaside. Whether you have been for a bracing walk along the seafront with a fierce souwesterly hurling seaspray across your path, or have spent a pleasant interlude pottering around a harbourside, dodging the waves crashing over the harbour wall, there's nothing like heading to a cosy pub for a cold one, the heady aroma of hearty pub food and a clutch of local characters of varying degrees of eccentricity putting the world to rig

Minus 5 Ice Bar: Chillin' in Las Vegas

I know there are hardcore Vegas partiers out there who would snicker at the concept of an ice bar. I can hear them now: “It's a gimmick, why freeze when imbibing instead of kicking back at the poolside cabana?” or “I'm not going to pay a $25 cover for the privilege of sitting on a block of ice to toss back a vodka shot!” Before entering the Minus 5 Ice Bar at the Monte Carlo Hotel, I was even harboring some doubts....last winter was extra rough where I'm from in New England. Even now I'm nursing
