This Day in History — First Can of Beer is Sold
It's almost the weekend, which is my favorite time to crack open a can of...well, if I'm honest, these days it's usually PBR. Times are tough, but not as tough as they probably were before this day in 1935, when the Gottfried Krueger Brewing Company delivered it's first batch of 2,000 cans of Kruege…
Go Here: Abandoned Hospital on North Brother Island in NY
Every time I got sick as a kid, my mother would call me 'Typhoid Mary.' That was before the internet was a thing, and so I always assumed she was having a bout of amnesia. When I was older, though, I learned that Mary was very real, typhoid was very scary, and this abandoned island hospita…
This Day in History — China Discovered Feathered Dinosaurs
I'll never forget the feeling I had on January 22, 2003, when I learned that Chinese scientists had found dinosaur fossils with four feathered wings. That feeling was: awesome.
Go Here: Mütter Museum in Philadelphia
I tend to have a pretty short attention span at history museums, unless they are one of two thing: interactive, or disturbing. The Mütter Museum, a museum of medical history, is definitely the latter, and so it's thankfully not the former. You would not want to interact with the …
Go Here: El Cosmico in Marfa, TX
Ever since I saw Baz Luhrmann's magical 1996 interpretation of 'Romeo and Juliet,' I've romanticized the idea of living in a weird desert trailer park. Now that I'm a grown up, the idea of permanent residence in one is slightly less appealing, but El Cosmico is a commun…
Go Here: Centralia — Abandoned Mine Fire and Ghost Town in Pennsylvania
When people ask my why I won't watch horror movies, I tell them that I've never seen 'Silent Hill' because Centralia exists, and it's creepy enough.
Go Here: The Museum of the City of New York
Let me start by saying that I think the name of this museum sounds boring, too. I only found out that it was awesome because I was already in the neighborhood for something called 'Ice Derby,' which is a much better name but had unbeknownst to me been rescheduled. Don't worry, I'm still going to Ice…
Go Here: Sukiyabashi Jiro in Tokyo
Whenever I hear too much enthusiasm about something, I usually decide that it's exaggerated, and ignore 3/4 of it, on account of how mature and open-minded I am. When I heard that a tiny subway-stop sushi restaurant in Tokyo had the best sushi in the entire world, I scoffed. I'm a believer…
Go Here: Dinsmoor’s Garden of Eden in Kansas
After returning from his work as a nurse during the Civil War, S.P. Dinsmoor built himself a 10-room log cabin and spent the rest of his life making it into a weird, awesome art installation. Not a bad way to spend your days.
Go Here: Underwater Hotel Room in Maldives
"From birth, man carries the weight of gravity on his shoulders. He is bolted to earth. But man has only to sink beneath the surface and he is free. " -Jacques Yves Cousteau
