Brain Candy Live!

Brain Candy Live is a touring show featuring Adam Savage and Michael Stevens (Vsauce). My mind is blown think about these two guys together and seeing them live. I am addicted to their YouTube channels. I regularly watch Adam’s one day builds on Tested and Michael’s Vsauce. It’s got what brains crave.

Becky and I are excited to see the show in Worcester, MA this weekend. It is going to be epic.

William Shatner at Boston Comic Con!

I had to. I just had to meet William Shatner. I saw that William Shatner was the guest of honor at this year’s Boston Comic Con, so I had to find a chance to meet him. Shatner is promoting a new memoir about his friendship with Leonard Nimoy. It is also the 50th anniversary of Star Trek. In my opinion, the original 3 seasons of Star Trek is some of the best TV ever produced.

Hans Scharler and William Shatner at Boston Comic Con

Shatner greeted us with a monologue about how he liked the Patriots because of Brady’s wife, but now he is a LA Rams fan. The Mayor of Boston, Marty Walsh, named August 13, 2016 William Shatner Day. From TV to spoken word albums, “I think it’s gonna be a long, long time” before I get this star struck again.

The Royce With Chef Perry Pollaci

To kick off our honeymoon, Becky and I had an amazing dinner at The Royce in Pasadena, CA. Our meal took place at the Chef’s Table where Becky and I were presented 7 custom courses created by Chef Perry Pollaci and his team.

Our Custom Menu:

  • Amuse Bouche
  • Beef Carpaccio
  • Lobster Soup
  • Kobe Stew
  • Salt-crusted Lamb
  • Epoisse Cheese and Apples
  • A Tasting of Crème Brûlée

The custom menu created by Chef Perry was inspired by our personal tastes: paleo, gluten-free, and crème brûlée (this was my only specific request as it is Becky’s favorite dessert). The salt-crusted lamb topped the dinner for me. It was beautifully presented on a charred cutting board and served with carrots and smoked yogurt.

The team at The Royce made the first night of our honeymoon something to remember for a lifetime. The presentations were picturesque. The service was perfection. The dinner was exquisite.

Thank you for creating the perfect night!
