A Comprehensive Food Guide to Oahu Hawaii

A Comprehensive Food Guide to Oahu Hawaii

As a second honeymoon, my wife and I took a trip to the island of Oahu in Hawaii. Considering that it was January, we wanted to go somewhere warm, but that was also a completely different experience for us. After much evaluation we settled on the farthest U.S. state from the Northeast. Neither of us … Continue reading

The Proposal – A Day in Paris

The Proposal – A Day in Paris

This is a milestone post for two reasons. The first is that this is the 100th blog post on Man Fuel (!!!) and the second (although much more important) is that today is the second anniversary of when I started dating my fiance, Sophia. That’s right, I said, “fiance.” As a doubly special post, this … Continue reading

King Richard’s Faire and Food – Carver, MA

King Richard’s Faire and Food – Carver, MA

Most people from Massachusetts and RI have probably heard of King Richard’s Faire. If you haven’t heard of it, the quick breakdown is that it’s a medieval/Renaissance fair that runs only on weekends for about two months every year in the Fall. At first mention, anyone who has a preconceived notion of a Renaissance fair … Continue reading

A Visual Food Tour of Khartoum, Sudan

A Visual Food Tour of Khartoum, Sudan

This post is long overdue, but I wanted to make sure that I captured my trip to Khartoum, Sudan in a way that would do it justice. There is a lot that I’ve left out considering that I took over 400 pictures while there. That’s more impressive than you might think considering that it’s “illegal” … Continue reading

A Visual Food Tour of Salem, MA

As an anniversary present, my girlfriend gifted me a trip to historic Salem, MA and a one night stay in the Hawthorne Hotel. We spent less than 24 hours there, but we saw a lot of what Salem has to offer on the off-season (i.e. not Halloween). A few of the highlights included seeing a … Continue reading

A Visual Food Tour of Brooklyn, NY

A Visual Food Tour of Brooklyn, NY

A couple of months ago, I attended a wedding in Brooklyn, New York. Coincidentally, this was the same weekend that hurricane Sandy hit the east coast, but we managed to leave NY before it got really bad. That little nugget of information is only tangentially related and didn’t really affect my stay, but I do … Continue reading

A Visual Food Tour of New Orleans

A Visual Food Tour of New Orleans

In mid-October I had the privilege of attending one of my best friends from high school’s wedding in New Orleans. If you haven’t been to New Orleans it is definitely a singular experience when traveling through the United States because it feels like you are in a different country.  The architecture is old world and … Continue reading

A Mini Food Tour of the Newport Folk Festival

A Mini Food Tour of the Newport Folk Festival

On Saturday, July 28, 2012, my friends and I arrived a little late to the Newport Folk Festival in Rhode Island. I immediately noticed the irony that the sea of hippies before me was getting high and feeling the “vibes” inside the Historic Fort Adams (active during five major wars). When I mentioned this juxtaposition … Continue reading
