The Best Fast Food in Every State – Food & Wine

Some weird choices for sure but interesting to see what others have to offer. While the coney island and coney dog are a big part of Michigan, National Coney Island is a restaurant and not fast food.

[Fixed] Issues With American Express Referral Bonuses Posting (YMMV) – Doctor of Credit

Hope everyone got back their missing points. I am glad I never got caught up in this but with Amex there is always some kind of posting problem going on somewhere.

US Travel Association Reacts To Congress’ Passage of Omnibus Spending Bill – Travel Pulse

I was surprised to read:

“the United States is the world’s only G20 nation that conspicuously doesn’t have a cabinet-level official or a federal agency dedicated to overseeing the country’s tourism policies and strategy.”

It is nice to see the US finally catching up to its peers in this respect. I would like to think that maybe this turns into some proper laws that protect travelers, like EU261, especially after what happened over the last week. But, I won’t hold my breath on that. They had their chance at the beginning of the pandemic to push it as a condition of the money they handed out.

  1. You’ve been very quiet about your new plans. I realize that that’s likely at least partially out of respect for your current arrangement. At the risk of pushing boundaries too much could I ask about the following:

    Please, please can you say that you won’t be involved with TPG? I have vast respect for you and none for him so it’d be nice to know that you won’t become a cog in the machine that fears comments by its readers.

    Outside of social media, is there a way that readers can learn about your new endeavors?

    • Very much so out of respect for MtM and no it won’t be TPG so have no fear there 🙂

      Unfortunately social media is kind of the only option I have for the time being.
