About Me

I am a geek executive (think the guy with the pocket protector in High School) turned out good!  I am a huge lover of food, wine, etc. and am a decent cook in my own right.  Also love music, especially blues and am trying to learn to play the guitar. 

Places I Follow

Steven's Activity

AParis: CDG 3 to RER B station- How??

I've only taken it from 1 and 2, but 3 is right in the same area.  Basically once you leave "customs" or the exit, just follow the signs for "Trains to Paris".  The RER train is the same place as the TGV trains too.  There is a tram (CDGVAL) that... See More

AParis: Any experience with an Air bnb in Paris?

I have used AirBnB many many times in Paris -- and would highly recommend it!  I've had 90% positive experience -- one very negative one (mostly my fault) -- but the places have been amazing and pretty much spot on.  Just note that many of the places have pretty strict... See More

AParis: Best way to get from the airport to Hotel Marais?

Renata gave a great detailed answer.  I use the train (RER B) almost exclusively now -- but then I get in around 7 AM on Sunday so the airport and the train is pretty empty so it's much easier.   You may (SHOULD!) download a nice "Metro" travel app -- I personally... See More

AParis: Must eat resturants in Paris and Rome?

My current favorite place in Paris is L'Ami Jean​ -- Basque food. Great fun service, busy, fast, and the cook is from a book (well, his book anyway).  Been there multiple times -- each time the food was amazing.  Must have the rice pudding for dessert.... See More

QParis: Is there good places to eat on Easter Monday in Paris?

Going to be there this weekend and it looks like almost every place is closed Monday - restaurant wise. Anyone know any good spots that will be open??  See More

ALas Vegas: Which hotel would you choose?

I am tired of the strip hotels too -- so I now stay downtown and really do like the vibe there.  I've been staying at Golden Nugget Hotel & Casino​. The new tower is especially nice, reminds me a lot of the Mandalay Bay "The Hotel" rooms.... See More

ALas Vegas: Best tips and casinos for first time gambler?

Well, I've been going to Vegas (and gambling) for over 25 years, so I know something about this. :)  The first thing to do, as you seem to have done, is to set aside a daily allowance just for gambling (and DO NOT TAP INTO MORE).  As indicated below, almost all casino's... See More

AParis: Favorite Restaurants?

Well these places are in the Le Marais area, but if you are going to Montmartre (my current favorite area to stay and of course where Le Coeur Scared is) my faves are: Le Coq Rico, Le Grand 8​, Miroir​, Jeanne... See More
