The Hotel Toiletries That You Could Use As Part Of Thanksgiving Dinner

Whereas Joe collects and uses just about every bar of soap he can get from a hotel, I’m not one to use the hotel’s toiletries a whole lot. I have no huge reason to not use them, other than the fact that I really like the soap and shampoo/conditioner that I bring with me. But I’ll always check them out, because sometimes I’ll find one that I really like for occasional home use – the lemon & sage Bliss collection that they have at the W, for example, smells really nice.

Anyway, we stayed at the Kimpton Gray Hotel in Chicago not long ago, and in checking out their toiletries, I swear, I think you could use some of them as part of a Thanksgiving meal. No, really! Take a look…

YMMV Travel Deals: Tuesday., Nov. 20, 2018

When we see travel deals, we always want to spread the word. So as we see them, we make sure to let you know. They run the gamut from hotels to flights to points to miles to car rentals and even stuff you need while you’ll traveling, like equipment, Uber discounts, theme park tickets, food for when you’re on the road, etc.

Heads up that some of these deals might be really limited in time or amount, or some could go on for days or longer. Some deals might be good for some people and not so much for others. There may be better deals out there and we just don’t know about them. We take no responsibility for any transaction you may or may not do; we’re just telling you what’s we’ve seen that’s out there at that very moment and it’s up to you to decide if it’s something useful, beneficial and worth it for you, and if you can take advantage of it before it’s too late.

Here’s what’s out there right now:

Get One Of My Must Have Travel Apps For Half Price

One of the reasons I don’t use an ad blocker on Facebook (even though I really want to) is because I’ll occasionally see deals for things I want. I know that’s the point of Facebook following me and pushing customized ads into my newsfeed, but I’m willing to play along if I can pick up some great deals here and there.

I noticed an ad for TripIt kept showing up. When I looked closer, I saw it was offering a year membership for TripIt Pro at 50% off.

We Went To ICE! At The Gaylord Palms – The Scenes From A Christmas Story Were AMAZING! But…

It’s no secret that A Christmas Story is my #1 most favorite Christmas movie of all time. We watch the movie every year (usually more than once), we’ve been to A Christmas Story House in Cleveland (where they filmed a lot of the outdoor scenes), we have a Christmas tree dedicated to only A Christmas Story ornaments and I even have every single piece that Department 56 ever made for their A Christmas Story village. So when I found out that the theme this year for ICE! at the Gaylord Palms was A Christmas Story, I was more than a little excited.

ICE!’s opening day was November 16th and Joe was scheduled to be off from work (HAPPY DANCE!), so we went. Here’s what we saw…
