Dag Dag had been closed for several months for “renovations.” Now I’m not sure what was renovated, but it’s a homey little restaurant that’s run by a somewhat older couple. The husband is a jokester from the UK and his wife is from Mexico City, and somehow they came to running a fish restaurant in Cancun. … [Read more...] about Winter Break 2015 Trip Notes Part 2: Cancun And The Riviera Maya

We connected through Newark on the return. Many people hate flying through Newark. I love it as it means I can get some of the best kosher General Tzo or Sesame Chicken in the world with free delivery from New Kosher Special to the airport. I even made the order on their website using the GoGo internet from the plane! … [Read more...] about Trip Notes: Eating Our Way Through Montreal
In San Francisco, after watching the Cavs win their first NBA Finals, the PreCheck line seemed significantly longer than the already long regular line. I had never seen that before and was almost tempted to join the regular line with my brother JJ who didn’t have Pre-Check.

The bassinet was just barely wider than our 18 pound 5 month old and he slept in it for maybe 45 minutes before he wanted to stretch out but there was simply no space.

I thought I’d be smart by driving past the $15 parking garage and opting for street parking a little further away. Alas the street parking had variable pricing and was $3.50/hour for the game, so all I wound up saving was a buck. But hey, a dollar saved is a dollar earned…or something like that. Plus the meter took credit cards, so I earned 3 points per dollar on my Sapphire Reserve. … [Read more...] about Trip Notes: A Father & Son Private Jet Ride To Minneapolis
