The Drive is #FtWorthIt: Vivo 53’s INSANE SUNDAE Lineup

This past Saturday night, two Dallasites got insane and headed to Cowtown to eat Italian food and feast on insane sundaes. Well, one insane sundae.

Eating Portland: My First Trip Out

Okay, folks. Let’s talk about Portland, Oregon, shall we? My inlaws moved to Portland somewhat out of the blue a short time ago, and now it’s on the map for me.
