    In which I travel to the East Coast for Thanksgiving and gain 100 pounds as a result of scheduling every social interaction around either food or drinks. Seriously, this “recap” is way less about what I did while I was home, and more about what I ate.

  • In which our hero flies from LAX -> EWR for a whirlwind five-day weekend filled with work, food and booze. Bookended by family time. That’s it. Read it. I even included some pictures.

    Ken and KT’s apartment is in a cool, walkable neighborhood with balcony views of Mile High Stadium and the Rockies. There’s a ton of development going on in Denver now (they expect the total population of the city to grow by over 50% in the next 25 years) so that view of the mountains is now pockmarked by a couple of the many new high-rises being constructed all […]
