Our EPIC Dinner at Victoria & Albert’s (Warning: VERY Photo Heavy Post)

Our friend Matt texted me in early April – his brother Jake was going to be in town at the end of the month and had snagged a reservation for a party of four at Victoria & Albert’s. Joe and I were the “foodiest” people he knew, so would we be interested going?

Would we be interested?

Um…yeah.

Actually, make that a “HELL, yeah!” 😉

It’s Time To Sign Up For Hotel Promotions

If you’re like me, there aren’t enough hours in the day to get everything done. Because of that, I tend to put things on the back burner if they’re not due right away. So I haven’t even noticed that the hotel chains have all started their newest round of promotions. As it turns out, not all is lost as many offers are very “procrastinator friendly” this time around.  Instead of waiting until the last minute, take a few minutes right now to sign up. That’s what I’m going to do. That way you won’t forget and end up missing out on free points.

YMMV Travel Deals: Mon., May 14, 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 today:

Priority Pass: Why You Might Want It & How You Can Get A Membership

The Priority Pass program is a network of airport lounges (and, more recently, restaurants, bars and even day suites) that allow access to members of the program. They can be airline lounges or locations with no airline affiliation.

The program has been around for about 25 years. We visited a lounge in Japan with our friend Steve, who had a membership, when we visited there in 2005. At the time, lounges didn’t sell day passes, as access to these rooms were seen as an exclusive perk for frequent flyers. However today the airlines see membership to the lounges and access to them as another way to generate extra revenue.

Here’s a description of Priority Pass from their website:
