Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles


Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles

I was driving home from Blue Palms in Los Angeles the other night, and I just happened to pass Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles. I’ve never been there, but I’ve heard all about it. It gets a famous mention in Quentin Tarantino’s “Jackie Brown” when Samuel L. Jackson’s character uses Roscoe’s to convince Chris Tucker’s character to help him out with something.

Set Sail For Mutineer Restaurant


Mutineer Restaurant

We’re pretty sure this is what went down: Back in 19XX, the founders of Mutineer Restaurant traveled forward in time to the year 2008 in search of a vision for their restaurant…the rest is history. Located in Florida City, Florida, Mutineer Restaurant’s website features some killer graphics and Billy Joel-esque piano riffs playing in the background. I decide to take advantage of the websites “Tour” feature, as I’m on tour on the West Coast right now, and well, it sounded like a great place to start. With the piano rocking my iMac speakers, I got a glimpse into what Mutineer Restaurant is all about.

Drunken Flying Fish


SeaTac Airport

I used to love airports. They conveyed an excitement to me that meant an adventure was coming. That excitement has turned to burden as I have entered the ranks of business travel, and as such I have begun to appreciate the amenities one can find in the modern airport. Of all airports, one stands out as being exceptional, and that is Seattle/Tacoma International Airport (Frankfurt is the worst).

After undergoing a somewhat recent remodel, the main concourse more closely resembles a posh Las Vegas casino than a typical airport. As you leave security, you enter a cathedral of a space full of dining and shopping options, with the far side being a massive (and I mean massive) glass wall overlooking the runways of SeaTac.

Comme Ca


Comme Ca

There are a range of great restaurants in Los Angeles, but Comme Ca is different. It is the rare restaurant that can rattle your soul.

Comme Ca is the sister restaurant to Sona, which in my opinion is one of the best restaurants in Los Angeles. Comme Ca calls itself a brasserie, which, according to my Mac OSX dictionary is:

an informal restaurant, esp. one in France or modeled on a French one and with a large selection of drinks.

What does informal mean? Well, referring back to my handy dictionary, it means:

having a relaxed, friendly, or unofficial style, manner or nature.
