One of the many perks of a 22-city book tour includes never being hungry. As I criss-cross the United States and Canada, I get to explore all sorts of incredible regional North American cuisine, cocktails, and craft brewing. Aside from a few sad airport breakfasts, I have been loving the food on the road and am excited to share my favorites with other hungry travelers so I made a goofy Google map featuring some highlights for dining, drinking, and buying books! I’ll be adding to the map as I move and have already been to New Brunswick, Princeton, NYC, Philly, Austin, New Orleans, Oxford, Memphis, Boulder, Denver, Rochester, Montreal, Toronto, and DC. Stay tuned for the following cities and check out a few highlights in pics below:

Chopped pork sandwich at Payne’s BBQ in Memphis. That mustard slaw is the craziest color and the most delicous condiment in the BBQ canon.
