“I could play Daryl Dixon forever,” he said at Variety‘s Entertainment Summit at CES 2018.

Norman Reedus, star of AMC’s “The Walking Dead,” said he feels like he could portray redneck character Daryl Dixon on the hit zombie series indefinitely. But of course, even though “Walking Dead” has proven to be a major success for AMC which has turned the franchise into a “365-days-per-year” fan experience it eventually will have to come to an end, said Charlie Collier, president and GM of AMC, SundanceTV and AMC Studios. The show is currently in the middle of its 8th season. “We talk about it all the time how do you make sure it goes as long as it can, while still being a responsible business?” Collier said. “We talk about whenever it ends, that it’s Smithsonian-worthy.” He added that “this is a fun ride for everyone involved” but acknowledged that “it’s a far more expensive show in every way than it was on Day One.”

DC’s National Harbor’s Restaurant Week Feb 4 – 10th!

Yes, this is my hood. Even though I live 4 miles from National Harbor, I just don’t spend enough quality time at one of the DMV’s great hidden gems.

I’m generally not a fan of Restaurant Weeks because always hard to get a table, but I love the concept and since this is only a few miles from my house, I just may have to pounce on this one.

Believe it or not I was hit by a fire truck last week. A FIRE TRUCK. Unbelievable! So I’m a little late with this, if you are one of those folks staying in the DMV for Thanksgiving and looking for something to do. The female front Rock Band Kitten is playing at the Songbyrd Music House Nov, 22nd. Doors open at 7pm and tickets are only $12. I’m really digging their music.

Travel: Unwrap a World of Disney Memories This Holiday at Disney Parks

So, hello, my name is Michelle, I got suckered into buying a Disney Timeshare that I can’t use. Hi Michelle. Ok, so my Orlando Timeshare isn’t through Disney. My timeshare is beautiful but there were so many hidden gotchas with that deal, that I’m still salty. So I’ll hopefully be in Orlando in January hanging with the Mousehouse. If you don’t have a timeshare.

The folks at Disney Parks want to remind you that they are there, ready to rock and make your next Disney Holiday cheap and fun.  Just in time for gift-giving season they just announced several new travel perks. If one of you wants to gift me an entire Disney Vacation, I wouldn’t say no.
