Tasty Travel: The Landing at 7 Central

Being inspired by my upcoming travels, I wanted to share a great place I found that’s not to far away from Boston, so those who cannot fly anywhere can at least have a mini–getaway. So a few weeks ago The Russian and I took the commuter rail (gotta stay frugal) to Singing Beach in Manchester–by–the–Sea….

Frugal Foodie in Florida!

So this Tuesday, The Russian and I are joining some friends in (hopefully) sunny Ft. Lauderdale.  My friend from college has a pretty large house out there and is letting us stay for the week. While I will try to post on the food and sun, I am not sure how often I will get…

Check out my culinary Travels through Europe

Yesterday, my first of three guest posts was published to Tripologist, a site devoted to giving the inside take on traveling.  Click on the picture to read about the travels (and tastes) of the countries I visited last summer. I’m planning to travel to more destinations with The Russian in the near future, so these…

Tasty Travel: The Smith, NYC

Last weekend, The Russian and I left Boston for my hometown of NYC, to visit my friend Tora Fisher, who, as I have written before, is an amazing artist living in the city. Anyways, before getting on the long journey back to Boston, Tora causally said she would take us to a place that had…

A global guide to tipping (5 Photos)

Just wanted to re–blog this post from The Chive, a site I love, about tipping. Being a member of the restaurant industry in Boston, tipping is literally how I keep my lights on and The Russian fed. Needless to say, it’s important, and I find that not everyone, especially our foreign guests, are aware of…

We’re off on the Road to Rhode Island…

As I’ve mentioned before, I graduated last Friday. As a treat and to get out of town for a minute, me and The Russian headed up to Newport, RI. Just a brief overview of our actives in town: The drive only took about 1 1/2 hours and we were a world away.  The Russian, being…

The Best Buenos Aires Restaurants For Cheap Bastards

Originally posted on Pick Up The Fork:
Sometimes I get attacked by a dark hole of self-induced extranjero depression, where just whipping out an old BA guidebook, glancing at an outdated travel article, or deciphering a price crossed out pizzería menu gives me the uncontrollable urge to play the Inflations-A-Bitch pity party game. With restaurant costs catapulting…

One Love

So The Russian and I just got back from the Jewel Dunn’s River Resort in Jamaica and I have finally lulled myself out of depression to write this post. It was wonderful! I’ve never been so disappointed to be back in Boston. In the interest of saving money and spreading the word about the best…

Frugal Foodie in Jamaica!

On Monday morning me and The Russian are off to Jamaica! I am very excited to get out of the cold and into the sun for a week, and of course I got a great deal on the trip! I went to Cheapcarribean.com (my new favorite website for vacations) and got a package that included…

Tapas vs Pinxtos: cheap food battle

In my introduction to my website, I wrote that I want to focus my blog on food and sometimes travel. I have yet to talk too much about traveling, so I figured I would ease my way into it. I am traveling to Jamaica in two weeks with The Russian and I will most definitely…
