Mixtape #1 – NOLA

For our first mixtape, we felt it appropriate to have a theme. A tribute to a city that has become so near and dear to our hearts. New Orleans. It's hard not to fall in love with New Orleans. A city so rich in culture and pride. A city with such a palpable passion for music, I would put...
At the beginning of our work week, we kicked off our time in Marfa with an early morning breakfast at an awesome little florist-meets-cafe-meets car lot with a tantalizing title, Buns ‘n Roses. We were welcomed to a perfectly simple eggs-any-way, huevos rancheros, and the best homemade donuts you’ll ever eat. These sweet morsels of awesomeness were light and...
The most important meal of the day--or likely weekend in this case--comes in a variety of shapes and tastes here in New Orleans. We dined at coffee stands, diners and restaurants and each offered a totally different experience. While we barely scratched the surface on what the Big Easy has to offer for breakfast, we were not disappointed with...
Delicious food is available everywhere in New Orleans from fine dining restaurants all the way down to gas stations. If you’re looking to take a load off and enjoy a sit down meal, there are a variety of cuisines to choose from. Our list of essential restaurants range from fast casual to intimate and downright fancy. Depending on your...
Marfa (pop. 1,747) is located in Presidio county which occupies a good chunk of the Mexico border and lies west of  of Big Bend National Park, home to the Chisos Mountains and a beautiful stretch of the Rio Grande.  We got the chance to explore this region for a week in the piping hot month of… April. An old fashioned...
After hearing several passionate arguments for visiting this little town in west Texas from some friends in-the-know, we headed for Marfa. Let’s just get one thing straight--Marfa is weird.  Not in the ‘Keep Portland Weird’ sense, but more of a ‘I’m not sure I get it’ sense. And we get the sense that you’re not really supposed to get...
But Marfa need not be defined only by what’s inside the city limits. We had two amazing trips to nearby destinations. The first was to a Star Party at McDonald Observatory. We were lucky to book this in advance because we learned this is quite the popular attraction. Built atop a mountain in southwest Texas, McDonald Observatory hosts these...
  The air becomes thick with anticipation, the city swells with excitement, and a dusting of multi-colored beads trims the trees lining St. Charles--the time is Carnival. Steeped with tradition, history, and folklore, there is truly no celebration in the country quite like Mardis Gras. In the weeks leading up to Fat Tuesday, a sea of parades with dancers, marching...
On this page we'll log all of the places we've stayed, whether it's a fancy-schmancy RV resort, or a Wal-Mart we crashed at for the night. We'll include a few details that we think are important and if we would ever stay again! This will be a work in progress as we get the site up and running, but...
Po boys are as quintessential to New Orleans as a great slice of pizza is to New York. While to the untrained eye, a po boy (or poor boy) might just seem like any ordinary sandwich, these sumptuous subs are anything but. A fresh, crisp baguette is filled to the brim with your choice of meat (shrimp, oyster, catfish,...
