I am up for just about anything but over time I have developed an allergic reaction to clubs and lets just call it the "bar scene", I need a place for a good conversation. When it comes to bars my thing is low key, "dive bars", off the path, the hole in the wall etc... Places I enjoy take no more than 5 steps to serve you a drink. The music and atmosphere of a place should be around you not inside your skull.
Going out to eat is pretty much my favorite thing on earth. I love food all kinds from the experimental, to the traditional, to the classics, if it’s good I want to try it. I have gone so far as to drive hours at random to get food I have a craving for. As I write this I have a craving for a sandwich I had in Philly last year and no it was not a cheese steak. I am a firm believer that a good meal is what life is all about and that a world renown restaurant can and does have competition from the most unknown of places, like a local chili place that does it just right.
Also I have unfortunately not traveled much as of late. That is going to change in no short order. I love short little random trips on weekends almost as much if not more than weeklong travel plans. When I get to a new place my first priority is to find the best and most interesting place to eat. A meal can tell you more about about the soul of a town than any museum or tourist trap.
My family and friends are the most important part of my life. They come before anything else for me and I would hope that you feel the same way about yours. It’s important to me that whoever is out there share that point of view.
I love huge storms. I don't know why I just do.
When I was a kid all I wanted to be was an archaeologist or an explorer. I was never the fireman type.
I drink Whiskey (Irish, Scotch and some Bourbon). I infrequently drink beer.
I love a good conversation and I frequently find myself talking with strangers about anything and everything.
