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...
From hurricanes to hand-grenades, sazeracs and go-cups, there is no shortage of places to grab a great drink in New Orleans. However, there is also plenty to do outside the booze soaked streets of the French Quarter to help you get into the New Orleans spirit. Here is a list of some of our favorite things to do between...
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...
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,...
Eating yourself sick on po' boys and downing gallons of daiquiris can get expensive. Luckily, New Orleans is home to plenty of parks, beautiful architecture, quirky shops and interesting characters for people watching--all for little to no cost. We put together a list of a few of our favorite things to do in the city on the cheap! 1. Besthoff...
Key West and the surrounding Keys offer up plenty of dining options, ranging from traditional CFaribbean fare to pasta and burgers. However, for the most part, you can find coconut shrimp, conch fritters and “best” key lime pie on just about every menu. While we didn’t have enough time to visit them all (or even scratch the surface!), we...
  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...
March kicks off a very special time in New Orleans--crawfish season! Toss them in gumbo, serve over rice étouffée style, pop them in a po boy, bake into a pie, drizzle over a hotdog, cream them up a la Monica, or go classic with a good old fashioned crawfish boil. These delicious crustaceans are something New Orleans locals look...
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...
