    There are many museums in Amsterdam and i think you will enjoy them or not depending on your interests. I did not see Anne Frank's house because my wife didn't want to pay for it. I regret that. We did go to a sex museum which was not as interesting as you might think. A bunch of old porn and old sex toys. I could have done without that.

    Did you go to the red light district? I heard that is pretty interesting to see.

    You can't really miss it, especially if you're arriving by train. I stayed in that area (De Wallen) both times I went. It also has has a lot of coffee shops in a small area...also gift shops, bars, food places. Try a FEBO, a food place, but the entire place is vending machines. Amazing concept!

    The Red Light District isn't really a huge deal as some people make it out to be, but definitely worth checking out. Just some windows, red lights, attractive (or not at all) girls in the windows. WARNING: There is a small section with blue lights. Blue lights = ladyboys

    One thing I wish I did was rent a bike and explore more outside of the city center. It's a very easy city to navigate. My friends were just there last week and did this, said it was an awesome time.

    We walked through the red light district to see it. It was a little creepy/funny watching people go in the rooms knowing what was going to happen next. My wife was student teaching nearby. I had to drag her to a coffee shop because i wanted to see that too, but she wouldn't stay very long because she was afraid she would see a parent or someone she knew. (I don't think they would have judged because they were there too but she wanted to leave so...)

    12 day, 2 part 3000 mile trip.

    The highlites;

    CHICAGO: Trump Tower,,,pretty awesome. Ruth Criss and Pizanos...pretty good food but you have to be retarded to wanna live in Chicago.

    IOWA: OSU/Iowa game. Equally sad and cool for the end of first qtr wave to the childrens hospital. American PIckers place nothing but a souvinier shop as I expected. Field Of Dreams...pretty cool. Pretty ironic they were combining the corn when we were there but left about 30 feet in the OF fence area. LeClair/Quad City area is a really nice area.

    WISCONSIN:
    Lambeau field. AWESOME! Gotta catch a game there. Milwaukee......Guns and Roses concert was fantastic. NO opener but they played for 3.5 hours. BEST EATERY was at Carsons. I am a steak guy and it was very good...better than Ruth Chris, but they had a pork chop that puts them all to shame. smoked 16 hrs, charred and broiled. Man was it amazing.

    Second leg..
    Nashville. Amazing city. will be back. Bengals/tits game. Front row where the bengals come out. Wife son got autographs, pic with Dalton, 3 pairs of gloves and high five from burfict after his ejection. They really know how to put on a salute to service game..unlike Cleveland. Toured downtown, Vets parade which was cool but way tooooo much filler.

    Trip home stopped at the Kentucky Speedway. Drove up to it as nothing was in the way. Security came up and said we could not be there. Asked if we could look around and he said...FOllow Me. Took us the middle of the infield and then took the kids on a ride around the track. We aren't race people but it was pretty cool.



    TL. DR.i know,.but if you know anything...if you see a CARSONS.......go and get the pork chop! AMAZING>

    Lmao you went to Chicago and went to Ruth Chris and Pizanos? Lolol I get Pizanos delivered at 1am when I’m hammered drunk.

    Comes to one of the greatest steakhouse cities in the world and goes to a steakhouse that you can get in almost every city. Can’t make this stuff up! Thavoice is a legit retard.

    Don't get me wrong. I'm all for ripping on someone if they've earned it, but you just ripped on someone who isn't that familiar with a city for not being more familiar with the city.

    I think your post being right after SnL was just an unfortunate proximity thing. My bad.

    Well he shouldn’t have put “you have to be retarded to live in Chicago” which was a direct shot at me. If he didn’t put that, I wouldn’t have said anything. But he made fun of Chicago and then went on to name two awful restaurants in Chicago lol

    Fuck that dude. Thavoice always has it coming for him. He gives it all the time whether he is being a passive aggressive douche bag, or being a redneck.

    I mean, I'm not really defending him. Just saying that making fun of someone who shouldn't be expected to be familiar with an area for in fact being unfamiliar with the area seems silly.

    But yeah, if he was going after him for the "anyone who wants to live in Chicago" comment ... I get it.

    Even if he didn't make that comment, he can go fuck himself. I still think he would deserve the hostility. His signature alone tells you all you need to know about thavoice.

    Also, there is this thing called google. It's not that hard to google top steakhouses in a steakhouse city. Google would tell you all you need to know about Ruth Chris and Pizanos. Might as well go to a hard rock cafe if you travel in Europe.

    Well, at least he stayed at Trump Tower which is damn nice, and the view from the outdoor bar on 18th floor is simply amazing.
