  • A bit of a shame since I don't live nearby anymore, but I loved Traditions Barber Shop in Beaver, PA. The barber/owner always remembered me and my preferences even though I was likely one of his less frequent customers, and the price was very reasonable for the quality of service.

  • Best Box Bakery in Huntsville Texas! The best custom decorated cookies in the universe. They ship!

  • Beautifull Minds Foundation, software publisher, 2810 N Church St, Wilmington, DE, 19802,  https://bmverse.io

  • Big Bob Gibsons BBQ is world famous, but the original location is just up the road.  It is still owned by the family that started it.  

  • Nc'nean is a relatively small woman owned distillery in Scotland!

  • Best ice cream in Ohio, and likely the world:

    Founded in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1870 -- so 153 years old this year.

    Small Batch, Hand-Crafted, French Pot Ice Cream for the win! Slight smile

  • Jason, that sounds good. If I ever go to Cincinnati, I will have to try that out.

  • I've looked them up and the pictures of the food looks good!

    I've attended an IT conference in downtown Austin several times. Each time I went, I would fly in, drop off my bags at the hotel and take a Uber straight to Franklin BBQ. Wait 30min and get some amazing BBQ before they close at 3pm.

    If I'm ever in Decatur, I will have to try Big Bo Gibsons BBQ.

  • I love food and there are amazing restaurants, food trucks, and carts here in Tucson. Tucson put the Sonoran hot dog on the map! It originated in Hermosillo, Mexico but in the 90's two restaurants popularized it in the US, BK's Tacos and El Guero Canelo.

    A Sonoran hot dog is a hot dog wrapped with bacon in a bolillo roll and topped with pinto beans, onions, tomato, salsa verde, mustard, and mayonnaise. There are many places in Tucson where you can get great Sonoran dogs, my favorites are Aqui Con El Nene, La Carreta Del Rorro, and El Guero Canelo. El Guero won a James Beard's American Classic award in 2018 for the Sonoran hot dog.

    Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams

    (I like Graeter's too, but Jeni's definitely takes the cake for unique flavours in my book!)
