Experience Battlefield at the National Infantry Museum

Experience Battlefield at the National Infantry Museum
Last June, with little fanfare, the National Infantry Museum and Soldier Center at Patriot Park opened in Columbus, about two hours south of Atlanta. (See map.)  This world-class $91 million museum features interactive displays that allow visitors to shoot an M-4 and experience a taste of what  soldiers see, feel and hear. The M-4 simulator is the same simulator that the Army uses to train. The National Infantry Museum is the only civilian facility in the country to have one. Another very authentic...

Game Day in Dublin

Game Day in Dublin
An Irish friend recently told me that the only thing that gets him through the last couple months of winter is the 6 Nations Rugby Tournament. Today is Game Day in Dublin – Ireland are playing Wales. Last year, Ireland defeated Wales in the last moments of the game to become 6 Nations Champions. While the game today doesn’t have the same stakes, I’d say the Welsh are eager to for a little bit of revenge for the 2009 season. The match today is being played at Croke Park, a massive...

Kings of Ice: Figure Skating Show

Kings of Ice: Figure Skating Show
Well, yes, the Russians have not succeded much in figure skating in the Olympics in Vancouver, but anyway we stay the home to many world-scale stars in this sport that’s a sort of a show, and in this show that’s a kind of sport. Mr Plushenko himself, who became a hero of many headlines during the Games, being “awarded” with a platinum medal by his own site, is now a headliner of a show “The Kings of Ice” to be held on March 30 at The Ice Palace.

Small Bites in Phoenix

Small Bites in Phoenix
It only takes a few bites of a variety of foods to make me feel full and content.  That’s why a variety of restaurants in the Valley are introducing “small bite” menus for people on a budget and more interested in the quality of food than the quantity. One of my favorite places to enjoy Happy Hour is at Brio at the Scottsdale Quarter (map).  They have two locations in the Valley, the second is in Gilbert (map). Their theme is based on La Dolce Vita, which is Italian for “The Sweet Life.”...

Waldorf Astoria Offers “Private Hotel” Option

Waldorf Astoria Offers “Private Hotel” Option
Over the years, I’ve had to travel fairly regularly for business to attend seminars, conferences and events and there have been times when a number of things decreased my enjoyment of the trip.  Many times, the organizing committee has to chose a hotel based on how many rooms it will have available during certain dates, their ability (and willingness) to accommodate a large group and the property’s facilities.  Occasionally, other groups book the hotel for the same time period which can be...

Amsterdam’s Silent Procession

Amsterdam’s Silent Procession
Each year in March pilgrims flock in their thousands to Amsterdam to take part in de Stille Omgang, a silent procession through the Amsterdam’s old centre. Tradition has it that on 15 March 1345 a dying man was administered the last rites. After receiving the host he became sick. The vomit was thrown into the fire but the next day the host lay undamaged in the ashes. A priest put the host into a box and brought it to the parish church, today’s Oude Kerk. But the box miraculously found...

Gourmet Grub: A Literary Landmark and Restaurant

Gourmet Grub: A Literary Landmark and Restaurant
Ha'Penny Bridge, River Liffey, Dublin Where to begin blogging about Dublin? I debated writing about the best live music, the best pint of Guinness, and where to find a good cup of coffee (no small task!) But after careful consideration I thought I should start with a literary landmark that has recently been transformed into a gourmet restaurant. The Michelin Guide agrees with Dublin residents who have praised The Winding Stair as one of the best places for authentic, yet gourmet Irish food. What...

Downtown Disney Diners Deserve a Break From McDonald’s?
McDonald’s Corp. and Walt Disney Co., a match made in heaven.  Well, at least that was the case until 2004 when an exclusive sponsorship between the two ended.  Now, Ronald McDonald is packing his things and leaving Downtown Disney Marketplace. As of April 30, diners will have to head elsewhere for their Big Mac Attacks as the McDonald’s at Downtown Disney (map) will be closing.  The closure makes way for the new  restaurant, Pollo Campero, part of a Latin chicken quick serve chain.

Where to find the best thali in Mumbai

Where to find the best thali in Mumbai
There are many reasons to travel to India, and food is one of them – despite its reputation for Delhi Belly. While dishes vary across the country – from the seafood curries of Kerala to the tandoori flavours of Punjab – one common dish you’ll find almost everywhere is the thali. This is essentially an all-you-can-eat meal served on a large stainless steel plate with small stainless steel bowls that are continuously filled with food until you’re ready to burst. A thali...

A Taste of Spring at Chelsea Brewing Company

A Taste of Spring at Chelsea Brewing Company
As cold NYC winters yield to longer days, warmer sunshine, and the aroma of sprouting grass and flowers,  thoughts of fresh microbrews seem to cross the mind more frequently.   Some call it spring fever but I call it a celebration of life.  Benjamin Franklin‘s quote “Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy” is reason enough for me to celebrate with my favorite cold one.  And when in Manhattan, you can’t do much better than Chelsea Brewing Company. Chelsea...
