re: Dallas - Craft brewery's - coldcoldcajun
Mission accomplished! Had a great a weekend and got to 4 places. Deep Ellum, Braindead, Bitter Sisters, and Unlawful Assembly. Got adventurous and tried some variety IPA’s at Braindead and Deep Ellum, wasn’t exactly happy with the choices,,,but that’s the fun of craft breweries. Those were both good...

re: Dallas - Craft brewery's - coldcoldcajun
Thanks all! With 2 suggestions each I think it will be Deep Ellum and Braindead. Deep Ellum the area itself was just becoming a thing when I lived in Big D in 86 and 87. Glad t see it is still a thing!...

re: Has anyone hiked the Salkantey trek to Machu Picchu? - coldcoldcajun
I follow a travel vlog couple that did the Inca Quarry Trail. They said it is different than the Inca trail. They posted a 3 part vlog of their trek. Here is a link, but if it doesn't work just go to Flying the Nest and search Machu Picchu. [link=(https://flyingthenest.tv/tag/machu-picchu/)]Flyin...

re: Rome ideas and suggestions - coldcoldcajun
Castle Sant Angelo. Not a hidden gem, but it wasn't on our radar and we thoroughly enjoyed walking through it. As with all of the major sites, get the guided tour audio (and remember your own earbuds.)...

France Next June - coldcoldcajun
16 days. 1 week in Paris to do all of the things you are supposed to do in Paris including a day trip to Versailles. Then heading west to Normandy and the WWII pilgrimage planning to stay in Bayeux. Figure the WWII beaches and cemetery will be a full day and will sneak in the tapestry. Is a day t...

re: Boulder, Colorado - coldcoldcajun
Pearl Street is a good afternoon stroll. Lot’s of interesting shops, bars, and restaurants. I assume you will have a car, so if you are into brewery’s drive the hour up I-25 to Fort Collins and visit New Belgium (Fat Tire) and O’Dell’s. You may need to make a reservation for a tour of New Belgium...

re: Restaurant Recs for Venice Italy - coldcoldcajun
Besides my seconding of the Zucca recommendation, we also dined at Bar Pontini! Glad you knew the name, because I had forgotten it (2 years ago now). And, yes I also enjoyed the squid pasta. My other advice for Venice: Forget trying to follow directions on your phone. Download a good compass app ...

re: Restaurant Recs for Venice Italy - coldcoldcajun
Realize the trip was a while ago, hope you had a good time! Saw the recommendation for Zucca down the thread. My wife and I saw it on Yelp, went there right when it opened at 7...no one at a table or waiting. Asked to be sat and waitress looked at us and said they have reservations at 9. I think she...

re: Uber vs "taxi service" in Italy - coldcoldcajun
If you are staying in the city centers, which in the larger cities are where just about anything you want to see is, they are pretty walkable, even in our mid 50’s. Just wear comfy shoes (watch out for the cobblestone streets in Rome). It was a great way to really see the city and we found some “hid...

re: Washington D.C. trip - coldcoldcajun
We visited the Senate. You will need to ask your state representative or senator’s office for the “invitation”. Got to meet our tour guide in the representative’s office (guide being an intern) and got a tour with less then 10 people. Not sure if you need to do this for the White House also (I didn’...

Delpit reputation as a non-tackler - coldcoldcajun
I'm glad Delpit's getting all the respect and love he gets, but I saw a preseason analysis of him that said he needs to learn how to tackle, not just get in the way or reach for feet. He got burned a couple of times last night because he didn't wrap his arms around the ball carrier. Also noticed he ...
