Kraftwerk – Walt Disney Concert Hall, Los Angeles

Posted on 03 April 2014

I witnessed one of the most amazing live performances ever. Kraftwerk performed live in 3-D for the first time in Los Angeles in a very long time. All of their shows here sold out within minutes and all shows were at the amazing Walt Disney Concert Hall in downtown Los Angeles. I was ecstatic to […]

InterContinental – San Francisco

Posted on 03 April 2014

The drive from Los Angeles to San Francisco always seems a little shorter and a little easier. When I finally arrived there I was a little frazzled from the traffic and having anticipated a few less hours at the wheel. Making matters even more challenging was navigating downtown on a busy Saturday night before I […]

St. James Hotel – Paris

Posted on 01 April 2014

Located in the 16th Arr., The St. James is the only château-style hôtel in Paris. Nestled in a lush green setting you would almost forget you’re right in the center of Paris and only a mere stone’s throw from the Arc de Triomphe and Avenue Victor Hugo. This stunning but small “mini château” only has […]

Primp & Polish – Williamsburg

Posted on 31 March 2014

As soon as you walk into Primp & Polish, you know that you’re not walking into a typical nail salon.  Things can only get better with each step through the doors and into the back garden to escape the madness of Williamsburg’s Bedford avenue. I was greeted by the spa manager and led to the […]

Great Northern Hotel – St. Pancras, London

Posted on 24 March 2014

Hotels these days are really pushing the boundaries in terms of offering more services, outlandish design and mechanized service. I’m glad to say that Great Northern Hotel holds their standards to a high point, without sacrificing anything in the process. Now I know this might be getting a bit too far off base on semantics […]

Brooklyn Night Bazaar – NYC

Posted on 20 March 2014

One of the greatest things about the Brooklyn Night Bazaar is just how much there is to do. The event, which takes place every Friday and Saturday night from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m. at 165 Banker St. in Williamsburg — a block north of McCarren Park — is an amalgam of night market, concert […]

Jumeirah Carlton Tower – London

Posted on 24 February 2014

You really should do this more often, old chap. Sipping a glass of champagne in your classically luxurious room at the Jumeirah Carlton Tower, you contemplate dinner at the hotel’s venerable Rib Room, famous for its Aberdeen Angus beef. Is there time to pop into the Victoria & Albert Museum or wander through Hyde Park? […]

Putney is home to the first London based Kitchenette restaurant, following the success of various other locations: many are in Turkey, with others operating in St. Petersburg, and Baku. This lively venture serves an all-day Mediterranean style menu – breakfast, lunch and dinner – with Turkish influences. Kitchenette’s interior simplicity is appealing, which brings the […]
