The “Best-Of” what, exactly?
Well, we all have moments in our life when we experience “Best-Ofs”…that time you had the best taco, visited the best beach, or drank the best beer.
Here are my personal Best-Ofs. I have traveled the world and have seen, smelled, tasted and touched a lot. The items on the list below are nothing short of phenomenal! I hope you will have a chance to experience at least a couple of these. If you do, shoot me a note, and let me know what you think!
*This page is currently under construction. Check back for a full list of “Best Ofs” along with descriptions, pictures and links. The list below is just a teaser!

Best Budget Hotel
United States – Hyatt Place
Minneapolis, MN – The 5-8 Club
Copenhagen, Denmark – Glögg at Tivoli Gardens
Glögg, or Gløgg, is a traditional Scandinavian winter drink, served hot, and it is typically made with red wine and a spirit (e.g. cognac or rum) mixed with sugar, raisins, almonds, clove, cardamon and cinnamon. I actually prefer the virgin version, without alcohol–I actually thought the version with liquor was gross. Look for a little glögg stand at Tivoli Gardens.
