re: Burger/BBQ joints in/around Dallas or Arlington? - Geaux Frogs
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...

re: Italy in Wintertime/Christmas - Geaux Frogs
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...

re: Fort Worth, TX: eating and mostly drinking - Geaux Frogs
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,...

re: First time out of the country, what do I do about cash? - Geaux Frogs
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...

re: First time out of the country, what do I do about cash? - Geaux Frogs
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...

re: Fort Worth Lunch Recs - Geaux Frogs
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
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...

re: Where should a young professional, working in ft worth, live? - Geaux Frogs
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
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...

re: Anyone been to Hilton Rose Hall in Montgego Bay? - Geaux Frogs
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...

re: Trail Shoes (NSFW) - Geaux Frogs
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
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...

re: Help me choose an international trip! - Geaux Frogs
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...

I think O is dark on Sunday and Monday. Absinthe is a great show, with a pretty cool theater. Get there early, and take some time to walk around the theater and look at the stuff they have on the wall....

re: Has anyone ever driven through Mexico, like from the border to Cancun? - Geaux Frogs
My in-laws have a house in San Miguel de Allende. They used to drive down there all the time when my wife was a kid. 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. Their traveling partner, who is a ...

re: Going to Punta Cana on Friday... - Geaux Frogs
We went to the DR a few years ago. It is beautiful, the resorts are beautiful, the areas outside the resorts are sketchy. Pro Tip: The Texas Rangers have a huge training facility down there, and the Dominicans love the Rangers. I purchased 2 $20 Texas Ranger caps at Academy before we went, an...

re: San Francisco/Big Sur Recommendations - Geaux Frogs
Big Sur is one of my favorite parts of the World. There are many memorable places to propose around the area. Pfeiffer Beach. This is a very popular spot, and was the first place I thought of. Google some pictures, the sunset coming through the keyhole in the rocks is awesome. It is a bit of ...

re: Fort Worth - Geaux Frogs
Take a look at The Woodshed. It is just north of campus, and is a great place to hang out. Upscale, outdoor BBQ place on the river. Billy Bob's has been thrown out already, okay place to chase skirts and dance with the beautiful TX ladies. You guys are mid 30's and may want to hang out som...
