    SLC Airport D Concourse: Close to Food Heaven

    December 3, 2013

    There’s nothing wrong or unusual about choosing flights/airlines/itineraries that go through a certain airport because you want to eat somewhere that you can’t eat at home … is there?

    I hope not. Cuz that’s what I’ve done over the past month or two with some of my recent trips.

    See, the airport recently overhauled its concession options and 13 new restaurants opened about a year ago. One of those is Smashburger, a fantastic burger joint that we don’t have here in the Tri-Cities. It’s right up there with In-N-Out and Five Guys. Super good.

    And here’s what’s really great: Smashburger is on Concourse D at SLC, and it’s within 50 feet of two other great food spots: Krispy Kreme (which we also don’t have here in Tri-Cities) and Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory.


    Look at that. It’s like the Bermuda Triangle of food options practically right next to each other — except it’s a GOOD kind of Bermuda Triangle. You get three of the main food groups: burgers, donuts and chocolate. And what’s really cool is that it’s down at the end of the concourse, so you don’t usually have to fight huge crowds like the ones you get at the main terminal restaurants.

    Right now, that’s my favorite single airport concourse anywhere in the US. I love you, SLC Concourse D.


    Maui Day One: Sheraton Maui Resort Hotel, Whaler’s Village

    As I mentioned a couple days ago, Cari and I spent the first week of May in Hawaii, celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary and wondering why we’d never been to Hawaii before! This is the first in a series of posts recapping our day-by-day adventures.


    (May 2, 2011) Our first travel day. We woke up at 4:15 am to catch our 6:20 am flight out of Tri-Cities. The route was here to San Francisco and on to Kahului (Maui’s main airport), so just one quick stop to get there.

    The flights were both great, especially the flight from SFO to Hawaii. It was on what seemed like a pretty old Boeing 777 — old, because it still had those video screens hanging from the ceiling. Haven’t seen those in quite a while. And for such a crowded flight, the boarding process was amazingly smooth and fast. Continue Reading…
