Hi there. I'm Craig Stoltz, a freelance journalist writing about food, drink, and travel. I've been a journalist for over 30 years. I've been eating, drinking, and traveling even longer.

I've written for dozens of Washington and national publications over the years, including Esquire, GQ, Saturday Review, Washingtonian, and USA Weekend.

I'm a foodie who cooks, a wine geek who's not a jerk, and a cocktail nerd who knows his way around a mixing glass.

My lovely wife and I take e-biking vacations around the world. On weekends we explore the mid-Atlantic's wineries, restaurants, distilleries, parks, B&Bs, and other places we're lucky to enjoy. We love road trips. We eat out a lot.

My lovely wife says I am now doing Adult-o-Rama.

I gotta say, as in most things, she is right.
