This entails all posts that aren’t all that related to food.
Update for everyone!
I’ve just added my first “Guest Author” of DineAtJoes.com. Potentially, you’ll be seeing a few posts here and there by authors other than myself!
If you’re interested in posting on DineAtJoes.com, let me know and I’ll try to work things out!
Walt Disney World – Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa – Narcossee’s – Almond Encrusted Cheesecake
Well, ladies and gentlemen, the past year of food has been awesome. I wanted to take this opportunity to sit down and actually write a blog entry going over the past, present, and future of the blog.
- Las Vegas, Nevada (Twice)
- Houston, Texas (4 times, Though, just passing through each time)
- Saint Louis, Missouri (Twice)
- Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
- New Orleans, Louisiana
- Phoenix Arizona (Twice)
- Los Angeles, California (Twice)
- The Caribbean, including Roatan, Honduras
- Belize City, Belize (though I couldn’t get my cell to post from here. )
- Cozumel, Mexico (There either)
- Tuscon, Arizona (and Tombstone, AZ, The thing, and surrounding stuff)
- Providence, Rhode Island (my phone was dead, though… I went to Hemingway’s and had awesome stuffed shrimp.)
- Boston, Massachusetts
- Southwestern Connecticut
- Amarillo, Texas (multiple times)
- San Antonio, Texas (multiple times)
- Austin, Texas (multiple times)
- And, of course, the metroplex that I call home, Dallas / Fort Worth, Texas
- Over 100 burgers (only 98 are tagged here)
- Around 50 whole pizzas (75 meals archived here)
- 15 different Egg Benedicts, while in search for the best (click here - I think the best I had was the one in New Orleans at Stanley)
- 105 decadent desserts (click here)
- 137 Mexican and “Tex/Mex” dishes (click here)
- 133 Fast Food runs (click here)
- All this, with a grand total of 812 posts, detailing around 800 dishes.
- I may not post every meal I eat out, as I know that not every time I go to get a Quarter Pounder with Cheese at McDonald’s is all that exciting.
- I plan to post more written posts, kind of like this one… I may or may not get around to it.
- The written content of the posts should go outside the scope of “Food” and “Food Tourism” far more than they have.
- With the food posts, I will follow the format that I’ve already had–categorized by meal, course, and cuisine, tagged by city and state and perhaps some odds and in-s. (I’ll let the reader dig through my site to find some of the cool ones. Here’s one that I’d suggest.
- In tagging the posts, I’ll tag by PRIMARY destination. (For example, if I eat in New Braunfels, Texas, I’ll put the post under “San Antonio” and “Texas.” Otherwise, the tags just get too confusing.)
