Meet Scott and Al.


Dated for almost 4 years, engaged since October 2014. Known each other since 6th grade.

Scott asked Al out to the Halloween Dance in 6th grade – she said no.

17 years later, he asked her out on Christmas night. She said yes.

8 months after that, Al moved to join Scott in our nation’s capital. And soon after, Scott and Al found a cozy apartment near Old Town to call home – together. However, as of August 2016, they have returned to their hometown of Medina, NY to show some WNY love!

Ivan and Miah complete the family, though they are situated on 4 legs. Well, except for Miah, who only used two.

Sadly, Miah lost her battle to Systemic Lupus last July. Her memory lives on in our continue to help rescue pups in need. If you feel so inclined, please donate here. All donations benefit Miah’s rescue organization, Save-a-Pet of Niagara County.


In a DC Minute is the brainchild of our desire for life filled with good food, good wine, and adventures no matter where we call home.

We write about where to go,  what to do, and most importantly – what to eat.  You’ll find reviews from WNY, DC, and all of our travels in between.

We document the typical (and atypical) woes of dating life, and the most often experienced relationship dilemmas.

And occasionally, we ask the President to join us for a bowl of guacamole. (We’re still waiting on his response…)

We’re glad you found us and hope you stick around!

    1. So glad to have met you at today’s Canal Village Farmers’ Market! Love your blog. We’ll be regular readers. You’ve barely scratched the surface of what’s great about Medina and Buffalo – and just across the border in Canada there are additional adventures. Endless opportunties which we’re excited to read about. Welcome back to WNY!

      1. Thank you both!! We can’t wait to spend time in our beautiful hometown and really enjoy what is means to be from Medina. One month down, the rest of our lifetime to go! Thank you for being so welcoming, we look forward to seeing you soon!
