Safe House Restaurant Anne Koehlinger

Safe House Restaurant

  1.       Safe House – Milwaukee, USA

If you like spy and CIA movies, then you should check out the Safe House located in Milwaukee. The Safe House is a spy themed restaurant that has a big interactive element. Their outside may look a bit plain but when you think of the purpose of safe houses is to be nondescript and safe from outside people you realize it’s the perfect look. When you go there to get into the Safe House you need a secret password. Don’t fret if it’s your first time though as the doorman will give you a mission to do to gain entry. For example, you may need to waddle like a penguin for 30 seconds!

Medieval Times Anne Koehlinger

  1.       Medieval Times – Various, USA

Although Medieval Times does have several locations across the US it’s still a very unique and fun dining experience. All locations resemble medieval castles and are themed on the 11th century. Food chosen is prepared in the fashion as well and not cutlery is available to help customer get into the theme. Not only that but there are live jousting and stage shows running at regular intervals that you can watch while dining.

Ninja New York offers an exciting experience from the mythical 15th century Japanese feudal setting to the magic and ninjas. All of the waiters are dressed as ninjas and upon entering the restaurant, patrons will be bowed to as greeting and then asked if they’d rather go down the simple or dangerous path to the table. The atmosphere is astonishing and complete with gorges drawbridges and tunnels.

Fritz's Restaurant - Anne Koehlinger

  1.       Fritz’s – Kansas & Missouri, USA

Fritz’s is a famous Kansas landmark established in the 1920’s and still making quality burgers today. During the 1960’s it became hard for Fritz to keep up with the popular demand for his food. Luckily Fritz is a bit of an inventor and in an effort to improve services and cut costs he invited a food delivery system. Funnily enough although not the original concept, everyone saw these delivery devices as little trains bringing their food to the table. Fritz came around and became design the whole theme of the restaurant around train memorabilia and the delivery system.

4 Things You Must See and Do in Paris, France

Paris France Eiffel Tower - Anne Koehlinger

Anne Koehlinger is a student pursuing a career in culinary arts. She loves to travel and explore different cultures and cuisines. Recently, Anne Koehlinger has traveled to Paris, France where she had the opportunity to learn all about traditional French cuisine along with its rich history and traditions.

Not only is Paris physically large but within its borders, there is enough to see and do that it could keep you busy for weeks. Even though most visitors don’t have the opportunity to spend an extended period of time in Paris, they can still get in some of the top sites on a short stay. If you want to narrow down your itinerary and fill it was some real gems, here is what to do.

Have a Picnic by The Eiffel Tower

It may seem obvious but the Eiffel Tower is a must see on any Paris trip. It’s not one of those over-hyped tourist traps and is actually quite a lovely sight. Instead of waiting in long lines to get to the top, sit on a patch of grass below it for a picnic. Grab some cheese, wine and bread from a nearby shop and create your own picnic lunch while gazing at this beautiful site.

See a Show at Moulin Rouge

This eccentric nightclub perfectly embodies what the Paris nightlife is all about. Just from the outside, its red lights and architecture draw people in to see what is offered on the other side. While it is indeed an important part of history for Paris, making a visit will ensure entertainment way beyond a history lesson.

Wander The Catacombs

Underground, dark and a little creepy, the Paris Catacombs are worth feeling a little bit uncomfortable. Holding the bones of around 6 million people, this underground cave system served as a solution to overcrowded cemeteries. Now, tourists can visit this resting ground to see the stacks of skulls and bones.

Visit The Louvre

Yet another popular tourist site, the Louvre is one that must be experienced. The outside of the museum is a wonder of architecture and the inside of course will give visitors the chance to see some of the world’s most renowned works of art.
