About Me

During the day I work in commercial finance (yawn), by night I fight crimes (eat food) with my wife and our faithful side-kick (labradoodle).

In my spare time, I enjoy writing screenplays, food and travel stories, and sarcastic tweets.

Places I Follow

Evan's Activity

QSacramento: Me want food in Sacramento!

Heading to Sacramento, CA for work this week. I probably won't have a ton of free time, so where is the ONE place I must try and visit to score some great grub? Could be cheap eats, fancy dining, or a guy selling donuts out of the back of his truck--I don't care,... See More

ANeed inspiration for Loco'l. Where is the best place in the world to eat?

Most of the other trippy users are much more well-traveled than I am, so I'll defer to them for specific locations around the world. In a general sense, I think being outdoors (city/country/beach/etc) is one of the best places to gather inspiration for a fast food restaurant.... See More

APuerto Rico: So, we're going to Puerto Rico on a business trip in March 2014 and wondered what I must see while I'm there. Any must see nature spots or can't miss restaurants?

During a recent trip to Puerto Rico ​, my wife and I left with the highlight being El Yunque National Forest​. It's definitely a spot for nature lovers AND you might even get to swim in a waterfall. Yeah, it was awesome. I also cannot say enough... See More

AWhat is your best travel selfie?

QWashington, DC: Dog-Friendly Hiking Near Washington, DC

We're always looking for new places to hike with our pup, so I'd love any suggestions for good hiking spots (easy-moderate) within a 2 hour-drive from DC.  Also, any locations near good restaurants with pet-friendly patios are a huge plus.  We've done some... See More

AMost inspiring travel quotes?

This isn't a quote per se, rather it's a song that is full of travel inspiration:  "Go Do" by Jonsi.  You can listen to the song here ​ or read the lyrics here .  Really, no more inspiration is need than those two words:  GO DO! See More

ALos Angeles: Convenient Hotel

Hi Frances - Last year we stayed at the The Hotel Wilshire​ and really enjoyed it! It is reasonably priced for what is a very nice Kimpton hotel (TIP:  Sign up for the free Kimpton Karma Rewards ​ program so that you can get free wifi and a credit... See More

ASan Francisco: Terribly Romantic Ocean View near SF?

My wife and I eloped ​ in Muir Beach​ - It is a wonderfully romantic area with not only scenic mountains, but also ocean and beach views.  Where to Stay I highly recommend renting a house (using ​ or similar website).... See More
