Immersed In Puerto Rico … Same Same, Yet So Different

November 26th, 2017 · Tags: Cities · Restaurant · Wi-Fi

Wi-Fi On The Halfshell At Houston’s Captain Tom’s?

October 3rd, 2017 · Tags: Cities · Restaurant · Wi-Fi

  One of the pitfalls of no longer drinking alcohol is knowing that raw oysters on the halfshell is a dish best served with cold beer. Regardless, give me some crackers, horse radish and red sauce, and I will make it work.  I’ve had oysters on my mind since I hit Houston last month. For […]

March 28th, 2013 · Tags: Restaurant · Satire · Wi-Fi

    I love me some Schlotzsky’s. They were one of the pioneering eateries to offer free Wi-Fi, and at least in Texas, they are pretty much everywhere. (Darn it. I saw something about a Schlotzsky’s opening in New York or maybe New Jersey after I just left there recently.) Anywho … great sandwiches and […]

French Fried Wi-Fi: Dupont Circle To National Harbor

September 22nd, 2012 · Tags: Cities · Hotels · Restaurant · Wi-Fi

It’s been a weird week for PingWi-Fi on social media, but we keep on keeping on. On Twitter, I received a vague message from a college professor buddy of mine. Seemed legit. I clicked on the link and it requested that I log in on Twitter. It should have said “sucker.” After all these years […]
