The Apple Pan

Big cities always have their quaint and cool joints. In Los Angeles, I found The Apple Pan, which is no secret. Still, having a burger at a joint that is throwback to maybe 50 years ago was fun and tasty.

The place is easy to find on Pico Blvd, with a few parking spots behind and more on the street. Inside you’ll find a counter staff by friendly guys who sling burgers, fries, and slices of dessert with amazing speed. I went with the hickory burger and fries. Check them out:

Kind of cool the way the burger comes in that paper wrap. Keeps the mess off your shirt, too. By the way, those fries are very tasty. Great potato flavor! Will be back here to try some more items. Enjoy every meal.

The Wooden Nickel

There are timeless names for things and places. The Wooden Nickel as a term has been around for quite a while. In Hillsborough, NC, I found a bar by that name and decided to stop in for some refreshment.

All types of craft beers available as well as a fully stocked bar for whatever else you might want to imbibe. Friendly vibe here, too, which is always nice. The kind of place where you can linger, chat, and enjoy.

Fixer upper, Aruba, video

Quite a few abandoned houses dot the landscape of Aruba. You’ll find some houses that might have had a bit of character, too. They just sit there, weathering the sun and wind. Here’s a quick look at one.

If you have some skills, this could be your new home away from home, a fixer upper that could be made very nice indeed.
