Stunning views atop the Empire State Building at night

Earlier in the afternoon, I visited the Hearst Building, something I had always wanted to check out.  The day before, I got to run in Central Park. Knocked out three miles and crossed something uber-cool off my ...

Baseball aspirations: Dodger Stadium and an NLDS sweep over Arizona

Roy’s blend of fusion, familiar a tasty treat on first night in Phoenix

One of my favorite parts of traveling is eating, and our first stop this spring in Phoenix was Roy’s Hawaiian Fusion of Chandler, Arizona. Roy’s is a chain of 27 restaurants in the United States with one in Japan and another in Guam. It came highly recommended by my boss, and now I can highly ...
