QuikTrip Delivers Outstanding Customer Service

A few weeks ago I stopped by QuikTrip on my way home from the gym for some gas. I noticed an advertisement for Candy Cane Hole Bunches. So I went inside only to find no Candy Cane Hole Bunches available for purchase.

Step Into Hyper-Reality: The Marvel Experience Review

Step Into Hyper-Reality: The Marvel Experience Review

Last week Sheryl said she had a surprise for me. She wouldn’t tell me what it was, so I looked online for events happening around the Valley that day. Nothing stood out. As a matter of fact, until that day, I had forgotten all about it! Good thing I didn’t have a tee time. Anyway, […]

Bottoms Up: Popular Vodka Myths

Bottoms Up: Popular Vodka Myths

I found the HubSpot Blog Traffic Generator. The generator asks for nouns and will spit out a bunch of random topics for you to pick from. After much consideration, I decided to write on myths about vodka.

Delicious Sriracha Rooster Sauce Recipes

Delicious Sriracha Rooster Sauce Recipes

I love Sriracha. It doesn’t matter what I am putting it on, it makes food more enjoyable. I have put it on pizza, grilled chicken, steak and even burnt toast. Heck, I have even made a bowl of ramen noodles and spiced things up with a splash of this stuff.

Southwest: The Magazine Whiskey Drinks

Southwest: The Magazine Whiskey Drinks

We are on our way to Portland, Oregon and before we left, I grabbed an issue of Southwest: The Magazine to read along the way. We aren’t flying on this trip, at least not yet… We drove to San Diego and are taking a train to Portland. Anyway, we brought a bunch of beer on the train, and as I sit here reading this issue and drinking a bottle of cider. While reading, I ran across an article featuring whiskey.

Aloha! from Coachella Valley Brewing Company

Aloha! from Coachella Valley Brewing Company

Aloha! I was recently in Palm Springs for the Troon 2014 Western Regional Sales & Marketing Summit. The summit was at The Westin Mission Hills Golf Resort & Spa in sunny, and hot, Rancho Mirage, California. We left Scottsdale on Monday and spent the next three days there. It was great seeing everyone, and meeting people that I had only emailed with in the past.

Chipotle Mexican Grill: Gourmet Burritos and Tacos

Chipotle Mexican Grill: Gourmet Burritos and Tacos

Earlier this week I went to Chipotle Mexican Grill for lunch. I normally don’t eat like that, but I missed breakfast and I justified the gigantic burrito. My buddies Matt Rust and Benji Craig would be proud of me. I am pretty sure they spend more money at Chipotle than they do on their mortgages.

Dove Creek Lodge: The Jewel of Key Largo

Dove Creek Lodge: The Jewel of Key Largo

Before we moved to Arizona, we took a trio to Orlando, Florida. We wanted to see Walt Disney World and explore some of the parks in and around Orlando. (I just heard today that Walk Disney never got the chance to see Disney World… Imagine that.) After we left Disney we drove south, and hit several cities along the way.

A State of Trance at Marquee Las Vegas

A State of Trance at Marquee Las Vegas

Armin is our favorite DJ and we have seen him several times. The last time we saw him was in Chicago, but I really like Marquee, and have seen several big names there. I like hanging out in The Library upstairs. It is a little bit quieter, and not as crowded as the dance floor.
