Dave Witte is a travellin' man. When he's not on tour with thrash kings Municipal Waste, the drummer is either driving or flying off to meet up with one of the many other musical projects he's involved with at any given time.

Burnt by the Sun, Discordance Axis, Argonauts, Black Army Jacket, and Human Remains are just a few of the different acts Witte has played in throughout his prolific career.

Besides drumming, Witte's other passions are food and drink. Anyone who is friends with him on Facebook knows that the New Jersey native loves to post photos of the different bars and restaurants he visits on his numerous tour runs.

With Municipal Waste's fifth album, The Fatal Feast, just hitting stores last week, Witte is back on the road. Since he's always out and about throughout the coolest cities in the world, Noisecreep asked Witte for a list of his favorite bars and restaurants.
