You don’t have to go south to enjoy great barbecue. Here are three of our favorite joints in the Big Apple.
Mighty Quinn’s first made waves at Smorgasborg before opening its fast casual, brick-and-mortar location in East Village. Pitmaster Hugh Mangum is known in the city for his authentic smoky taste and perfectly blended dry rub.
The name is actually German for “fat pig,” but this auto shop turned barbecue joint is known for making some of the best American fare in Williamsburg. In true backyard barbecue fashion, Fette Sau serves their food at communal tables, often with a line stretching around the room. Favorites include loin chops, pulled pork shoulder and beef ribs, in addition to classic sides like baked beans.
John Brown Smokehouse
Serving Kansas City-style barbecue, John Brown Smokehouse is a no-frills spot in Long Island City that specializes in burnt ends, crispy yet tender strips of pork dipped in house-made barbecue sauce.
Santa Monica, California, has such an incredible array of restaurants and bars, it can be difficult to choose one. Rustic Canyon on Wilshire Boulevard makes it easy to decide; the restaurant manages to clearly set itself apart from the rest.
Once business concludes, a world of wonder awaits in many of Italy’s incredible cities.
Many travelers are exchanging their regular home lives for a more exciting life abroad. However, no matter where in the world you visit, money is needed to live a comfortable life. Gaining work experience abroad can diversity a resume and open opportunities worldwide. For travelers who wish to live a more nomadic lifestyle, getting a short-term job in a country is also a great option. This will ensure travelers have enough money to get by and give them experience. Before leaving for a country or while in a foreign land, travelers can use the internet to find jobs or local resources.
One of the best ways to experience and learn more about a culture is by looking for and picking through the local markets. Depending on the destination, markets can be found in the out-of-the-way nooks and crannies of larger cities or can function as attractions on their own merit.
For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
