sin city burger at smashburger + giveaway

Hello to you on this fine Friday morning! Let’s talk a little bit about Smashburger. Cause I ate there recently. This is a foodie blog after all. We talk about food around here!

Jake and I hit up Smashburger after they graciously gave me some coupons to check out a couple of burgers. When we were ordering the sign above totally caught my eye. Mmm, chocolate peanut butter shakes! I haven’t had one in awhile (these babies have already existed at …

rhode island – day two
October 14th, 2015Mary, Rhode Island, Travelmary 4 Comments

More East Coast goodness! On our second day in Rhode Island, we roamed around to check out what Rhode Island had to offer. Let’s begin!

We wanted to start the day off with a hearty breakfast and headed to a place called the Modern Diner.
The look of the diner should seem familiar as the design was inspired by streamlined trains. Roland Stickney designed the diners to be the same shape as the trains back in 1939. This particular diner was built in 1940. …

mark’s bark bbq

On a recent Sunday, Jake wanted to check out a new BBQ place he spotted when he accidentally drove up a random side street through Normal Heights. The place? A spot called Mark’s Bark BBQ which is only open to the public on Sundays. 

The rest of the time they are a catering business called Bettina’s Custom Catering, Inc. but on Sunday’s the joint is all Mark’s. His mom works at the front and she told us that Mark puts the …

cafe hue [revisit]

After dinner at Bistro Kaz, Laura and I walked over to get some dessert at Cafe Hue. I haven’t been to Cafe Hue in years! It was about time to check this place out again.

It looked pretty much the same to me. Gelato case in front, couches in the back. The menu was set up differently but pretty much had all of the same items on it.

After we both placed our orders, we sat over on the comfy couch. 

Laura got …

bistro kaz

It’s been awhile since I’ve been to this spot – in fact, it’s been long enough that they’ve changed the name! Bistro Kaz used to be known as Ristorante Kaz. It’s in the same spot but they’ve got a nice big sign now instead of before… when they basically had no sign at all. 
I was getting together with Laura for dinner before I left on my trip to the east coast. She had just gotten back from her summer trip …

birthday pizza crawl for jake

Jake’s #1 hands down favorite food is pizza. He once gave up pizza for lent as a personal challenge and it was a really, really tough time for him (it didn’t help that we went to a pizza restaurant to meet up with a friend and he was good and had a sandwich instead). Just like I say I have a “dessert” stomach, Jake says he has a “pizza” stomach. I wanted to do something special just for him and …

rhode island – day one

The day after Ashleigh and Steve’s wedding, Jake and I went to go hang out at my Aunt Joyce’s house for a bit. We weren’t really on a schedule, we just had to drive to Rhode Island that day. It’s lovely not having a schedule. After hanging out with Joyce and my Uncle Kevin, we headed out for a little brunch before our road trip down south. They took us to the place of their first date! It’s a place …
