The Beach Boys at the Scottish Rite Auditorium

As I made my way through the hoards of fans, all braving the latest nor’easter to bomb the East Coast on the official first day of spring, their puffy coats and wet boots creaking and slipping along the tiled floor, the ticket taker said to me, “Aren’t you a little too young for this? Are…

Disney’s Old Key West Resort, FL

If you’ve ever wanted to eat the most decedent biscuits and gravy in the entire world, look no further than Disney’s Old Key West Resort in Florida. I’ve stayed at this resort three times, and only ever discovered the wonderfulness that is Olivia’s Cafe back in 2015. I could kick myself for missing out on…

Walt Disney World at Christmas

  I’m such a Disney fanatic that it doesn’t matter what time of year I visit the magical House of Mouse; all that matters is that I’m there and biting down into a turkey leg within my first twenty minutes after arrival. The first time I’d visited Walt Disney World at Christmas was back in…

Lan Su Chinese Garden, Portland OR

  At first glance, Lan Su Chinese Garden seems oddly out of place in such an artisan city but that’s what makes it kind of great. It’s this whole other universe tucked inside a city that already operates like another universe. Tickets are $10 a piece for adults making it an inexpensive tourist attraction you…

Jersey Shore Alpacas

Because who doesn’t adore Alpacas? Back around the holidays, John and I went to visit Jersey Shore Alpacas after watching them on an episode of Weekend Philler. Trust me when I tell you, these furry little creatures did not disappoint. (Me and John, Weekend Philler Senior Producer) The alpacas are kept in a corral but…

If You’re Not Here, You’re Doing it Wrong: Oregon Coast

  Beautiful, right? When we decided to fly to Portland, we had a whole bucket list full of things we wanted to do – 89% of which involved drinking as much caffeine as the human bladder could hold. When we first arrived at the airport, our car rental representative gushed to us about the Oregon…

Elk Forge B&B Inn, Maryland

We discovered Elk Forge Bed and Breakfast on a Groupon. John and I are a spontaneous couple who not only love traveling, but trying out historical and interesting landmarks across the country. This place was perfect! Elk Forge B&B is only about an hour outside Philadelphia, depending on where you’re traveling from. Truthfully speaking, John…

Above and Beyond: Riding (and loving) Portland’s Aerial Tram

Growing up between New York and Philadelphia means that my definition of city transportation usually involves underground tunnels, urine streaked floors or a bus pass. Not in Portland, though. In Portland, if you want to commute to the other side of the city, you just casually take the Aerial Tram at the intersection of SW…

Exploring Collingswood, NJ

Despite having grown up near the quaint and picturesque town of Collingswood, we’ve never actually spent much time taking in all the sights. The town is beautiful. It has a very down-to-earth, laid back vibe with funky stores like Inner Grove Records which has now convinced me to go out and buy a record player,…

Vending at Collingswood’s March Second Saturday

There is one word to describe my vending experience last night: frigid. Surprisingly, not a ton of people stroll the charming streets of Collingswood in search of that “need to own it” piece of artwork in 30 degree temps, in the dark, barely missing my table of merchandise because I chose a location with no…

International Women’s Day

My mom was the perfect example. International Women’s Day is meant to be celebrated the way we celebrate someone’s life who has passed on. After someone leaves, all we’re left to think about is the impact that they left behind; their imprint…on our hearts, on our minds, on who we’ve become despite whatever adversary their…
