My wife and I recently took a trip up to Boston for a very long weekend. Since this was her first trip to the city, my wife did some planning and busted out the good old Google machine in search of some really cool things to do.

We stopped by Friends Grille & Bar just across the State line in Valdosta, GA recently on the recommendation of someone we were talking with. Damn!  We need to get more recommendations from her!

We've heard about these pigs for years and we finally able to get out and pay a visit to the beer drinking pigs at the Mt. Pellier Domino Club in the heart of the St. Croix Rain Forrest. Fortunately for you, we paid the extra three bucks so that we could film it.

We recently were in St. Croix and found ourselves with a free afternoon. We decided to head out to the Cruzan Rum distillery and take a tour.

They are located off of Centerline Road on the Frederiksted end of the island. The 20-30 minute tours cost $5 and includes two rum cocktails and four samples afterwards in their tasting room.

Cruzan Rum is part of the Beam family of brands but it’s still run by the Nelthropp family who’ve been making Cruzan Rum since the early 1800’s. The name Cruzan is derived from the word “Crucian” which refers to the people who live on St. Croix

It’s not every day that you walk down the street and see a sign that says “Scooter Rentals & Full Bar.” Of course I stopped to take a picture.  Who wouldn’t?
