Caz’s Chowhouse Delivers Down Home Eats

When we are in the planning phase of a trip, I like to leave a little room in the schedule for unexpected destinations. It never fails that many of the locals will point out some of their top spots, and when one gets mentioned multiple times, we try to squeeze in a visit. In Tulsa, we spoke with people in the Brady Arts District about a casual meal, and Caz’s Chowhouse was mentioned on numerous occasions. It was decided to stop in for a relaxed lunch break, after our visit to the Woody Guthrie Center. (You can read more about the Center here>)Continue reading

Nibbles Eatery Delivers Big Flavor In A Small Space

Our survey of readers had brought to light a small breakfast spot in the heart of downtown Eureka Springs. We had walked past Nibbles Eatery during our shopping excursion, and decided it would make a great stop for our last morning in town. Had we known what we were about to experience, we would have eaten here every morning. This is one of those books that you cannot judge by the cover.Continue reading

Tacos Don Francisco – Hole In The Wall Dining In Tulsa

We always make an itinerary for our research trips, since it helps keep us on track. While many of the attractions are the base for our visit, we try to be a little more fluid with our restaurant plans. While I will certainly select a few “must try” locations, some of the others are open for change, as new information comes to light. This was certainly the case for our unplanned visit to Tacos don Francisco in Tulsa, Oklahoma.Continue reading

Dining In Style On The Eureka Springs Train

A visit to Eureka Springs, Arkansas offers a chance to slow down from the hectic pace of everyday life. This quaint town in the Ozark Mountains is more geared toward leisurely pleasures, and we certainly were looking for some to sample. The Eureka Springs Train hosts a lunch ride that looked perfect for a romantic lunch date. We haven’t spent much time on trains, so the idea of dining onboard was quite intriguing.Continue reading

Tulsa Children’s Museum Offers Entertaining Education

We are baby boomers, and when we launched this blog, we expected that people our own age would be the only ones to read it. We couldn’t have been more off base. The analytics show that our largest age group of readers are actually in the 25 to 35 age span. We hope this is because we attempt to showcase a good mix of family friendly spots in our articles. We can still remember the days when our kids were still traveling with us. It was always a challenge to identify quality stops to add to our itinerary. While there are plenty of places using advertising to grab attention, sometimes it is difficult to know what you will get for your money. That is one of the reasons we try to add a few family spots to each of the cities we visit. In Tulsa, we took time to drop by the Tulsa Children’s Museum to see what they offer.Continue reading

Break Time At Aquarius Taqueria

Spending a day exploring can create a powerful hunger. Sometimes we find ourselves needing a small bite to tide us over until our next full meal. Such was the case during a busy day in Eureka Springs. Fortunately, we were downtown where there is a plethora of unique restaurants to choose from. Aquarius Taqueria was originally on our dining list, but had been replaced by a last-minute suggestion from our readers. The removal of Mexican cuisine had left us wanting, so an in-between meal snack offered us an opportunity to satisfy our craving.Continue reading

Taste The Freshness At Dilly Diner

Have you ever eaten at a restaurant that sources it’s ingredients locally? Did you notice how much more flavor the dishes have? We had that opportunity during a visit to Dilly Diner, in Tulsa, as we checked out their breakfast menu. We were happy to find out the restaurant was within walking distance of our hotel. A scenic stroll helped work up our appetites, so by the time we arrived we were ready for our visit.Continue reading
