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 ...

Spring training trip to Phoenix starts with Brewers, Dodgers and a sweet Mustang

As it rains across central Oklahoma tonight, I hearken back to the start of March and sunnier days. This year, I took my second trip to The Grand Canyon State, Arizona, to watch some spring training baseball. This is going to be a multi-post blog, otherwise it might not ever get posted.

That’s the danger of such a spot: You’re going to alienate a big chunk of the populous. Sure, very few would disagree with the premise of Audi’s ...

The Weeknd: A smooth jazz interpretation

Given that I’m a electronic piano-loving creature of the late 70s and early 80s, finding music from today that could fit my style is tough. Enter a ...
