Meadow Lark Farm Dinner at McCauley Farm

Within hours of landing in Denver, Colorado, I was riding high in an open-air, bright red Jeep Wrangler, alongside a white wolfish looking German sheppard and my childhood friend who had picked me up. We were cruising towards Boulder, and then on just a bit further into farmlands with a specific destination in mind. McCauley Family Farm was where we were headed, for a meal I had waited years to experience.

While there are many aspects about this city that I can’t stand, there are infinitely more things that I will miss. Therefore, I have devoted this summer to completing as many bucket list items as possible for being in this city.

The Best Of New Orleans

From the French quarter to the Garden District, New Orleans is composed of many unique neighborhoods that each have their own personality but all of which offer amazing music, food, drinks, and company. I got the opportunity to sample everything from alligator jerky to chewy pralines. While most of the foods were great, there were a few places that stood out more than the rest.
