If there is one food that the guys from Bubba’s Garage and I love it’s hotdogs. Most Wednesdays you can find me in front of the big orange truck known as the Top Dog Truck. This food truck serves up some of the best gourmet hotdogs in the Tysons Corner and Reston, VA area. You can check out their Twitter feed for their daily locations. While their regular dogs are great (try the bacon wrapped Sonoran Dog) I tend to go for the wacky dog of the week creations Dave the Top Dog chef whips up. Some of the goodness from the dog of the week have included a Seattle dog (Cream Cheese, grilled cabbage and onions, finished with BBQ sauce) and the Sweet Pea dog (Raspberry chipotle sauce, provolone cheese, and pea crisps). They may sound weird but they work. Try it, you’ll like it! Don’t forget to pick up a Top Dog card. Buy 10 dogs and get your next one free!
If you ever have a chance to sail to Alaska, do it! If you can save up a little more to be able to stay in The Haven Courtyard on Norwegian Cruise Lines, do it! For our anniversary Peg and I decided we would take our first cruise to Alaska. NCL sales called us, last minute, and offered us a deal to upgrade to a penthouse in The Haven Courtyard aboard the Norwegian Pearl. We did and it was fantastic! The Bird of Paradise Courtyard Suite Room 14014 (an S5 level penthouse suite) would be our home for the seven day cruise which started in Seattle, Washington.
