Approved! 100,000 Bonus Point Offer for Chase Sapphire Reserve

It was time for me to find a new credit card sign up bonus, as I plan on closing my Capital One Venture Card account as soon as I pay off my bill for the next cycle. My 40,000 bonus miles eventually ballooned into over 60,000 which I used to fund my flight and hotel […]

Using Amex Premier Rewards Gold 50,000 Bonus Points

So, I unexpectedly used most of my 50,000 point sign up bonus from the American Express Premier Rewards Gold Card. I was in the process of planning some sort of winter getaway (and I probably will still go somewhere soon), when there was a family decision to take a vacation to the US Virgin Islands […]

Art Deco Car Exhibit at the NCMA

As soon as I’d read about there being an Art Deco car exhibit at NCMA, I knew that I was going to buy tickets and check out these wonderful designs from the past. However, I put if off for a couple months before actually going, much like I did with the MC Escher showcase last […]

Fluenz French Level 1 Review

So, I must admit that I kind of bought Fluenz French on a whim during their Black Friday sale. I got the complete course Levels 1-5 for only $278. Why did I suddenly want to learn French? Well, I had actually started using Duolingo to learn late last year and into early 2016, and actually […]

Caesar’s Palace Garden of the Gods Pool

To me, one of the best features of the Caesar’s Palace property, was the complex of pools on site. These ‘Garden of the Gods’ pools were diverse and also very structurally beautiful. I have always been interested in Roman history, TV shows, and the aesthetic of ancient architecture. Caesar’s of course, does a heck of […]

Exploring the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas

  One of my favorite properties on the Las Vegas Strip to explore was The Venetian. As an outsider and not a guest of the hotel, the architecture and attention to detail in recreating Venice in the desert was really cool. I swung by here twice during my stay just to record and snap photos. […]

Caesar’s Las Vegas Palace Tower Room Review

When I finally arrived at Caesar’s Palace and got off of the shuttle bus which brought me from the airport, I was completely overwhelmed by what was going on around me. The throngs of people, my dead legs from cramped seating on the flight, and having no clue as to the layout of the city or […]

Town and Country Exhibit at the Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art Review

One of the things that I enjoy doing while visiting different cities is paying a visit to a local art museum. In Las Vegas, the town of endless gambling, drinking, and general merriment this can seem like an odd way to spend one’s time. Well, as I’ve established, I like looking at paintings for some […]

How Much Did My Recent Las Vegas Trip Cost?

On a whim, I decided that I’d fly out to beautiful Las Vegas and spend 3.5 days exploring the Strip upon my first visit to the city. Cool idea, since I had a pile of credit card points that were just itching to be used, and why not just go last minute to visit a […]

Things to Do in Raleigh Part 1: North Carolina Museum of Art Review

So, I like art. I don’t paint, sculpt, or draw…but I like looking at art. As a result, one of my favorite places that I have visited in Raleigh in the awesome North Carolina Museum of Art. To me and many other it seems, the NCMA is a fun way to spend a weekend afternoon […]
