In an attempt to start knocking the world’s greatest cities off our travel list, London was one of the stops on our early summer ‘hop over the pond’ (Travelogue of Dublin here; Paris travelogue coming soon!). This was A+L’s first trip to England together (L had visited once as a teenager) and we were excited [...]
Who doesn’t love brunch? As the dogs begin their regular AM wake up routine of howling and stepping on our heads, it’s our first half-asleep thought before our eyes have even opened. Booze, bubbly and bacon; it’s what mornings are made of. Sadly, this fabulous American pastime is restricted to Saturdays and Sundays, so we [...]
The options in NYC are endless. How the heck do you even begin to select your birthday festivities?! Sunday beer garden? Afternoon wine tasting? LES bar crawl? Meatpacking club hop? Fine dining tasting extravaganza? Like most New Yorkers, an attraction to every one of of these environments lives within all of us. With a lifelong [...]
Holy moly… 2 Plus 2 were going to Morocco. We were absurdly excited to finally add an African destination to our passports. It was our fourth continent!

We’ve been lucky enough to experience some Irish hospitality in heartwarming Dublin over several brief trips in the past couple of years. Between the four of us, we’ve [...]
Cyndi Lauper said it best… it’s true that girls just wanna have fun! If you ask L+M they would say that A+K like to have too much fun… if that’s even possible. The past couple of nights out, we’ve found ourselves heading uptown for a change of pace from the downtown scene. One would think [...]
There’s nothing better than spending a summer Saturday just strolling… hopping from place to place picking up cocktails and snacks along the way. It’s our hands-down favorite way to kill time. We usually pick a neighborhood and a meeting spot and then let the day unfold naturally through candid conversation and spontaneity. When you have [...]
The history of Chicago is rich and storied. The city started as a gateway to the Mississippi river basin. From Lake Michigan ships brought goods that supplied the midwest and blah blah blah great fire of 1871, immigration, deep dish pizza, Chicago dogs, Chicago Cubs, Al Capone, Art Deco, prohibition, speakeasies, Mayor Daley, State Street, South Side, the Miracle Mile, and the Sears tower (we mean the Willis Tower).
