re: Recommendations on a Quick Weekend Getaway Spot Near DFW - Geaux Frogs on 7/19/17 at 9:17 am
Take a look at a place called Rough Creek Lodge outside of Glen Rose. It is a family resort/executive retreat, but there are plenty of ways to be away from everyone. This is perfect for a weekend getaway...but it will be a bit pricey. Honestly, one of the best restaurants you can find, and I do...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: DFW baws I need input - Geaux Frogs on 5/30/17 at 2:35 pm
The amount of development in Las Colinas is crazy right now. I would imagine that area will turn into a hotspot once it is all completed late this year. I work in Las Colinas, and some of my co workers are thinking about going in on a "crash pad"...haha. It is tough to beat Southlake. Plano/Fr...

re: Best Vegas Shows? (mostly Cirque) - Geaux Frogs on 5/26/17 at 8:27 am
All of the Cirque shows are entertaining, and you will probably not be disappointed. They are all very well produced. However, if I were recommending a show right now, I would have you go see Absinthe at Caesar's. This was a really fun show....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Burger/BBQ joints in/around Dallas or Arlington? - Geaux Frogs on 5/12/17 at 2:02 pm
There is a place just northwest of the Ballpark, Donnie's Hot Dog & Philly Steaks. Not Burgers or BBQ, but it is a hole in the wall, and the food is good. Nothing fancy, large portions, and taste great. The lady that runs it is extremely friendly, tells everyone that she loves them. This is us...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Italy in Wintertime/Christmas - Geaux Frogs on 5/10/17 at 8:36 am
I did this exact thing about 5-6 years ago. We spent time in Florence, some small Tuscan towns, and Milan. We day tripped all around the area. I didn't notice a ton of tourist. The weather was good, cold enough for a jacket the whole time. New Years in Florence was memorable. They LOVE fir...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Fort Worth, TX: eating and mostly drinking - Geaux Frogs on 4/13/17 at 7:57 pm
There are some great restaurants in Ft. Worth. Ft. Worth isn't stuffy, you can wear jeans and boots anywhere and not be out of place. Even the "high class" places. Del Frisco's, Grace, Reata are nice places downtown. Drinks at the rooftop bar of Reata is a great place to start. As stated,...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: First time out of the country, what do I do about cash? - Geaux Frogs on 4/5/17 at 10:02 am
If you use your local bank, they shouldn't charge you anything. It is your money, you are just requesting they give it to you in a different currency. I bank with Chase, and this is how I have done it every time I have traveled out of the country. It usually takes them a few days to fill the orde...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: First time out of the country, what do I do about cash? - Geaux Frogs on 4/4/17 at 10:20 am
I try not to land without local currency...just in case. I go to my local bank before I leave and order $500 in the local currency. It is the same as making a withdrawal at an airport ATM, but no risk of your card data being skimmed, it is probably as close to the actual exchange rate as you wil...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Fort Worth Lunch Recs - Geaux Frogs on 3/30/17 at 8:42 am
BBQ: Heim, Woodshed Burgers/Sandwiches: Rodeo Goat, Bearded Lady Pizza: 13 Pies, Cane Rosso You should be able to get to all of these in that time frame. If the weather is nice, I would suggest Woodshed because it is very close, and you can sit on the riverfront. ...Rodeo Goat is a great ...

re: Things to do in Cleveland besides die - Geaux Frogs on 3/29/17 at 9:20 pm
I went to Cleveland for the 1st time, for work, in October during the World Series...obviously, the town was hopping. However, I was unexpectedly surprised by how much I enjoyed the downtown area. Progressive Field and Quicken Loans Arena are at opposite ends of a pretty cool strip of bars and res...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Where should a young professional, working in ft worth, live? - Geaux Frogs on 2/28/17 at 8:58 am
Fort Worth is great, it has a lot to offer a young professional. Lots of different neighborhoods that cater to different crowds, you will find somewhere to have a good time. Edit: ...and the commute from Dallas would make you hate your life. ...

re: Any must do/see things in Yosemite and Big Sur? - Geaux Frogs on 1/12/17 at 4:25 pm
Plan an afternoon for sunset at Pfeiffer Beach in Big Sur. Pack a picnic and get there early afternoon, or you will not get in. They limit the number of people who are allowed in the beach...there is a line to get in, one car out, one car in. The sunset through the keyhole is absolutely worth i...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Anyone been to Hilton Rose Hall in Montgego Bay? - Geaux Frogs on 1/11/17 at 2:16 pm
Those reviews sound like reviews for most all-inclusives. I just looked at the resort for the first time, and it looks nice, but 128K points per night is grossly overpaying. You come out significantly better paying with cash. If you are looking to take a trip and use your miles, there seems t...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Trail Shoes (NSFW) - Geaux Frogs on 12/30/16 at 9:31 am
I love trail running...stay nimble and light in your feet, and shorten your stride! There is something so nice about leaving the watch at home and running through the trees. Running in hiking shoes will make it a miserable experience. All of the major running shoe companies make trail running s...

re: Wolf Creek vs Purgatory - Geaux Frogs on 12/29/16 at 4:58 pm
Our family has been going to Wolf Creek for nearly 30 years. Grandparents bought a cabin for the family in South Fork because we enjoy it so much. As stated, no on-site lodging, so that cuts down on some crowds. There is not much to do in South Fork or Pagosa Springs for nightlife, so be prepared...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Help me choose an international trip! - Geaux Frogs on 12/14/16 at 2:51 pm
I did 2 similar trips during business school, and my recommendation would be to pick the location that you would least want to visit on your own. I had the opportunity to choose Italy, Germany, South Africa, China, Dominican Republic, Chile, or India. For my first trip, I did not do that. I c...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

They never traveled without someone who was from there, and they have stopped driving over the past 10-15 years. They say it is too dangerous.
