Rally to Restore Sanity - March to Keep Fear Alive

All Kinds of Awesome

  • I’ve been known to be pretty reasonable. Maybe I should spend my Halloween weekend in D.C.? (That is, if I don’t have shit to do.)
  • Looks like American airlines are following in the footsteps of Ryan Air and adding a buttload of extra charges to their services in order to make more money. Gadling reports that U.S. carriers have made more than $2.1 billion from these fees in the past three months. (Too bad U.S. airlines don’t have the cheap fairs to make up for it, like RA does.)
  • The Chicago Tribune highlights the best places in the city for food-related tours, including Eli’s Cheesecake Chicago. Upon further investigation, they host free weekend “Tasting & Tradition” events, where you get a slice of cheesecake, as well as samples of other delicious products. Screw lactose intolerance, Sam–let’s go!
  • Bill Steigerwald, a former writer for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, will be traveling the country to follow in the footsteps of John Steinbeck, who wrote the book Travels with Charley after journeying around the United States in a pickup truck with only his poodle as a companion. Steigerwald will be blogging about the experience and plans on compiling it into a book, later on. Travels with Charley is part of my reading list in preparation of this trip (more on that later) and, while I’ve heard some negative reviews, it should be interesting to compare the two.
  • Since my brother, Matt, no longer lives in Pittsburgh, the city didn’t make my list of stops. However, when Design*Sponge posted a Pittsburgh city guide this morning, it reminded me that the site has a bunch of great city guides that I can consult for the places that did make my list. (Alas, Emmaus still hasn’t made the list.)
