A Bay Area Jaunt – Hyatt House San Jose/Silicon Valley

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to visit the  San Jose area for work. Spotting a conveniently located Hyatt property, I jumped at the opportunity to diversify my points (having spent most of the last few years between Marriott and Starwood properties). The Hotel Located in a convenient cluster of restaurants and  stores, … Continue reading “A Bay Area Jaunt – Hyatt House San Jose/Silicon Valley”

Recent LAX Visit and @Delta First Class Meal – Antipasto Salad

While in LA for work recently, I caught a glimpse of a KLM Queen flying overhead as I returned my rental car. It’s been quite some time since I’ve seen one of those! I was pleasantly surprised with an upgrade on the way back to Raleigh. Initially rather worried with the weather hitting the South-East, … Continue reading “Recent LAX Visit and @Delta First Class Meal – Antipasto Salad”

San Diego Restaurant: 94th Aero Squadron

Though I have only visited once, it is safe to say that this hidden gem has made quite the impression!

Ambiance The building façade is reminiscent of a WW2-era farmhouse, complete with exposed brick, vintage airplanes, and … Continue reading “San Diego Restaurant: 94th Aero Squadron”

@Delta’s Narrow Wide-Body, the Domestic 767-300

Recently I had the opportunity to fly on what I like to refer to (affectionately, of course) as a narrow wide-body. Delta has a handful of Boeing 767-300 (not ER or LR, mind you) that have their first class in a 2x2x2 configuration. These seats are standard recline only, not angled or lie-flat as other … Continue reading “@Delta’s Narrow Wide-Body, the Domestic 767-300”

Complimentary Meals, Courtesy of @Delta

On a recent trip from JFK to San Diego, I had a chance to see Delta’s new menu for their complimentary meals. What I found interesting was that the offerings were different from their Flight Fuel menu. Additionally, in addition to splitting it up into “Eastbound” and “Westbound”, it is further divided into three distinct … Continue reading “Complimentary Meals, Courtesy of @Delta”

Raleigh Restaurant: Margaux’s

Though I’ve lived in Raleigh a fair amount of time, I haven’t explored nearly as many of the restaurants as I would have liked to. Thankfully, my girlfriend is more than happy to help me do that! Margaux’s has an interesting offering with heavy French influences, and it goes well beyond its name. The menu … Continue reading “Raleigh Restaurant: Margaux’s”
