Simply The Best: June 2023

This may have been my laziest month since I began this fine blog 9 years ago (see Simply The Best: TPOL, The Professor, Turns 9!). I blame trying to be too organized for my inefficiency (see Could This Be The Cure?). I’ll be better for the rest of my life. For now, here’s what was written in June:

    For 207,000 points, I am paying $235 for a business class itinerary that retails for $13,075 and flying 27,237 miles.
  2. You Don’t Have to Order a Bottle of Wine

    In order to maintain figurative and literal balance in my life, I am giving up the pleasure of ordering a bottle of wine at dinner.
  3. El Doble: Happiest Hour in Madrid. And There’s Fresh Seafood

    My friends gave me great recommendations for places to eat and drink in Madrid. And now I can do the same.
  4. Coravin Wine System: The Solution for Classy Bingers

    Whether you are looking to preserve souvenir wine from abroad or buy finer wine by the glass, the Coravin is right for you.
  5. TPOL to LIV PGA Trip Report

    As I did when I documented my training for the Athens Marathon, I will document my journey from the worst golfer in Rio Mar to Club Champion.
  6. Don’t Take All Advice: Meh Restaurants in Madrid

    Like opening a bottle of wine, dining out can be a wonderful adventure. Like opening a bottle of wine, sometimes the experience can be disappointing.
