Earlier this year our friends moved from Brooklyn to Denver, Colorado. This fall we had the chance to visit Denver so we could see their new lives and explore the Mile-High City for our first time. In just a few short days we ate and drank a bunch (shocker!); here are some of the spots we really enjoyed.
For highly original, creative food in a relaxed atmosphere, Contra in the Lower East Side is one of our favorite restaurants to go to. Our meal this visit was wonderful, and we also managed to chat with Diego, one of the sous chefs in the kitchen today.

Early Saturday morning of Memorial Day Weekend we boarded Mega Bus en route to Washington, DC. With Prem's parents in tow, who had never been to the capital, our goal was to make sure they experienced the monuments and history but also the food and culture. These are two important sides of life in DC but couldn't be more different; the area around the monuments and White House is very quiet and pristine, while there's more hustle and bustle and "city life" around U Street, 14th Street, and Dupont Circle. Here are some food and drink highlights from our short weekend.

Over President’s Day Weekend we escaped to Nashville with a couple of friends. It’s in the South, we thought. It will definitely be warmer than New York. Wrong. The South was experiencing a rare case of low temperatures, so while we managed to escape the hustle and bustle of NYC, we did not escape the cold. In fact, our return flights got canceled several times because of an ice storm and we ended up staying down South for an extra three days. Nonetheless, we had a great time exploring Nashville and all its little quirks. Here are some highlights.
