Newark Restaurant Week 2016: Caffe Gelato

Somebody thought of an awesome idea – get restaurants to make a fix menu at a pre-determined price for a week. It’s definitely a campaign to attract diners who otherwise would never stumbled into an establishment, as well as to try new stuff on the menu. Some people think that restaurant owners don’t really benefit from this, […]

The day after the day after the blizzard.

Snow can be pretty common if you live at the right places. Ice, slush and all other non-sense usually come with that. Icicles, however, require the right temperature fluctuation and ample amount of snow to form. These conditions make them both a stunning and rare sight when they do appear. We were dumped with 2 feet of snow, but everything started […]

Don’t Freak Out – It’s just a Snowy Saturday.

Due to El Nino effects and a warmer earth, Delaware did not receive any snow during this winter. In fact, there were days when temperatures were warmer than spring or falls. This was true until the east coast of United states is currently hit by winter storm Jonas. In the past 24 hours, it has been snowing […]

Let it snow (finally)

Finally! It took awhile, but snow has arrived. It isn’t too heavy, though, and there aren’t really sticking on the floor – You can’t really see it in the picture too. To be frank, I’m not a huge fan of snow because of slush and ice that comes after. However, I accept that as a […]

Does a Stone Balloon fly? Because their burgers don’t.

Stone balloon is the newest reincarnation of a gastropub/brewery restaurant on that spot. It used to be 16 Mile Brewery, and before that, something I do not remember – I have only lived here for 2 years. I almost dined at 16 Mile once, except that the hostess for that night turned down the few […]

The burger you got to try in Newark, DE – Redfire Grill

I kind of regarded this place as the de facto restaurant around Newark to get gourmet burger after our first & pleasant encounter here. Even though the burger isn’t one of those that are loaded with stuff, it is definitely loaded with flavor. Since I had been working hard the entire week to produce a […]

Here’s a round down on what I ate this week that looks pretty. These are found in Newark, DE. All ingredients and information about the restaurants are […]

How fast would you run for free brunch?

The quick answer is, not really fast because the brunch isn’t really free and you don’t have to qualify for it. I took a week off my regular marathon training to race in the 6th Caffe Gelato 10 Miler held here in Newark, DE. If you are interested in the course, it is basically a loop in […]

The race to 21-minute-5k.

It was the dream. It still is. Remember the times when men (and women) thought that a 4-minute-mile is impossible? Skeptics believed that our bodies are just not built to be that fast. How about a 2-hour-marathon, is that as far as reaching for the stars? Mankind passed the 4-minute-mile more than half a century ago, and we […]

Jake’s Wayback Burger

I was getting desperate. Having stayed in Newark, Delaware for more than a year, I was close to giving up on finding a good burger joint. Delawareans point to their beloved Charcoal Pit as their go-to burger place, but I wasn’t impressed (even though President Obama went there to try their famous milkshake). It didn’t […]

Stumpy’s Marathon

  To an average person or even a runner, a marathoner is a crazy person. Why would you spend a couple of hours suffering out there in the sun (or the cold!) running/jogging from point A and point B? Ford invented cheap cars for us so we don’t have to run long distances! However, from […]
