What to Eat and Avoid at the Park Hyatt St. Kitts

Our long weekend at the Park Hyatt St. Kitts wasn’t expensive in terms of getting or staying there thanks to airline miles and hotel points, but our time on the ground was a somewhat different story as activities and food on St. Kitts can add up quickly. On the plus side, much of what we ate was enjoyable, though there were a few misses along the way that I’ll share so you can focus your money and calories where it is…

Earn Starbucks Gold Status With One Purchase for Limited Time

I was a slow convert to the Starbucks Rewards program, but once I got in on the action over the summer, I now understand what the fuss is all about. I earn free Starbucks items much, much faster than I expected because of the omnipresent promotions and offers. Starbucks Gold members earn 2 Stars for every $1 spent and get a free menu item for every 125 Stars earned. That would mean I have to theoretically spend $62.50 to earn…

As I’m sure you know, today is Halloween and that means costumes, school parties, trick-or-treating, and absolutely no time whatsoever to even think about cooking dinner. Our Halloween dinner of choice for many years running is take-out pizza, but in part because we are on Day 10 of a Whole 30-ish self-induced torture where pizza is not even close to permitted, and in part because the girls have already had pizza parties at school, you will probably find us at…

Try Again to Make Reservations at United’s Classified Restaurant

A couple months ago United opened up an exclusive invitation-only 36 seat restaurant called Classified in Newark’s Terminal C. The sent out invitations to a “classified” list of United flyers informing them of the new restaurant and inviting them to make a reservation. I was not on that list.

Pay 1/2 the Cost of Room Service and Eat in Your Hotel Room

Like most parents of young kids, we live life on the edge of red level exhaustion pretty much every single day. While it is a million times better than it was when she was younger, we still don’t have the best sleeping arrangements with our toddler, and on a good day we are all just okay in the sleep department. On a day where you throw in early wake-up times to catch flights, later bedtimes, time zone issues, or just…
