The Brickhouse Restaurant Review

The Brickhouse is another restaurant I have tried recently. You probably could come to the conclusion that I eat out a lot, but really it is only as a special treat with my boyfriend on the weekend or with interns for lunch to get to know each other. Anyway, the Brickhouse is a new restaurant that was built within the past year in Cuyahoga Falls off the Howe Ave. exit. After first seeing it built, I had always wanted to try it from the cool architectural feel, but never got around to trying it…..so finally we made it in to

Starbucks on Top!

This is crazy to believe but Starbucks is now the 3rd largest US Restaurant Chain. #1 is McDonald’s…surprise surprise and #2 is Subway. It is very astonishing to think that Starbucks is currently ahead of Fast Food Giants such as Burger King and Wendy’s. Over the past years, the numbers have been changing a lot. Historically, the fast food chains dominated the United States. Now… McDonald’s is the only one in the top three that serves burgers and Starbucks is not even a “fast food” restaurant. Starbucks is on the rise again… what do you think about that?

Epic Meal Time

Have you ever heard of this show?…. Epic Meal Time is a show that is CRAZY. On the show, guys create an epic meal using insane ingredients to make an “epic” meal.
