Dyker Heights Holiday Lights

Dyker Heights Holiday Lights Brooklyn, NY
If you plan on visiting New York City over the holidays, the Dyker Heights 
Holiday Lights are a definite must-see! 

Located in Brooklyn, Dyker Heights is a beautiful residential neighborhood and 
these neighbors go all out for the holiday season. I've heard that some of the 
residents spend up to $20,000 to have their light displays professionally done! 
I've only been once, but rumor has it that they get better and better every year. 
Dyker Heights Holiday Lights Brooklyn, NY
A lot of tourists miss out on this holiday treasure because it is lesser known
than your typical NYC holiday adventures or because they don't want to go out to 
Brooklyn. Trust me, it's definitely worth the short trip! It's one of the most 
awesome things I've ever seen. 
Dyker Heights Holiday Lights Brooklyn, NY
The most amazing displays are located within the blocks of 11th ave to 13th ave and 83rd street to 86th street. The best time to go is at night of course and I would recommend giving yourself a couple of hours to see everything! They start turning the lights out around 9 or 10 so make sure you don't go too late! The nearest train is about a mile away so it's a good idea to drive if you can. The traffic can be a little hectic but it's not too hard to find parking on an off street like 10th ave or even as close as 11th ave. Parking is almost impossible within the streets of the biggest displays! Don't forget to bundle up and bring your camera!
For just $89.00, CityPASS offers a savings of 46% on 6 must-see New York attractions!

Enjoy a 10% discount on a City Sights NY Uptown, Downtown, Night or Brooklyn Tour! Use code: 10OFFCS

Casa Del Matador: Tex-Mex Restaurant in Portland, OR

Casa Del Matador in Portland, Oregon
Casa Del Matador is an excellent Tex Mex restaurant in downtown Portland. They have two locations. These pictures were taken at their North West Portland location. It is not very easy to find Tex - Mex food in Portland and this place is one of my top two favorites in all of Portland.

 Last time I was there I had one of my favorites, Pork Tacos al Pastor, and mercy they were good!  My girlfriend got the fajitas and they looked amazing. She refused to share, so I assume they were good.

My pictures just didn't do justice to this restaurant. The bar area is very cool. That's it in the 1st photo. Yes, that's a longhorn skull up there.

In this next photo you can see a round fireplace with a table around it. I really want to eat around that fireplace, but every time I've been in someone is already sitting there.

I don't know if you can tell from our faces, but the drinks were pretty good too. I had a margarita and they served it in a large glass. It was the same size as the glass in the picture.
