First Look: The 2015 Red Bull Air Race Schedule

November 26, 2014 at 5:02 PM | by | Comments (0)

Are you a fan of high-performance airplanes zooming through an obstacle course of pylons while traveling at speeds up to 230 mph only 50-80 feet above water or track? Then you likely had an awesome time this past year for the Red Bull Air Race World Championships, and should mark off your iCal with the news of their 2015 race schedule, just announced today.

2014 marked the return of the race after a nearly 4-year break to re-evaluate safety. The most recent series of races concluded with a stop in Austria in late October after hitting Abu Dhabi, Rovinj (Croatia), Putrajaya (Malaysia), Gdynia (Poland), Ascot (UK), Fort Worth and Las Vegas.

The good news for 2015 is that the US will still be represented on the schedule, with Red Bull returning to the Fort Worth and Las Vegas racetracks. The bad news is that no new US stops are included, and the races will again entirely overlook Australia and South America.

How to Celebrate Thanksgiving in Plymouth, MA

November 12, 2014 at 11:10 AM | by | Comments (0)

If you prefer Pilgrims to potatoes when it comes to your Thanksgiving celebrations, then make your way over to Plymouth, Massachusetts the weekend before the big day. We guess that in some ways this is where it all started, so it only seems right that the town goes all in for Turkey day festivities and fun.

Things take place on November 21 through November 23, as the weekend festivities kick off on Friday with a walk along the waterfront. Here tour guides—who may or may not being doing their best to do the Pilgrim thing—tell stories of how things went down around 350 years ago. That evening there’s a little bit of a street festival, a free concert, and they light up the downtown area.

Hawaii Will Host a Flight Attendant Fashion Show This Weekend

November 7, 2014 at 8:55 AM | by | Comments (0)

Skip the beach for a little bit this weekend, and enjoy a little bit of a fashion show during your time on the islands. This weekend uniforms, accessories, styles, and designs from Hawaiian Airlines will be on display, and if you’re in the neighborhood and have the time—it’s yours to check out.

The presentation from Hawaiian Airlines is all part of their sponsorship of Hawaii Fashion Month. The fun takes place at the MAMo Wearable Arts show at the Hawaii Convention Center. The event is free and open to the public, and it begins around 7:30pm on November 8—that’s Saturday. It’s actually the first time Hawaiian Airlines has done something like this, but we’re thinking if it goes well—it might not be the last.

The flight attendant fun isn’t the only thing taking place, as the MAMo Wearable Arts event will also show off some goodies from a few native artists from the Aloha State as well. Things like bamboo printing, lauhala weaving, and body art will be on display, and that’s in addition to some dancing, chanting, and other Hawaiian activities and traditions.

We’d see you there—but sadly, no Hawaii in the plans for us this weekend.

November 6, 2014 at 9:40 AM | by | Comments (0)

It’s November and that means that the weather is turning a little bit cooler, but for this month let’s do our best to try to stay warm. Of course hitting up a few beer festivals can do exactly that, but it’ll work even better if the festivals are in warm weather locations. Check out these beer festivals doing their thing this month from spots to California to Louisiana:

San Diego Brewers Guild Festival – San Diego, CA

When it comes to beer they call themselves the “Capital of Craft,” and we’re not going to disagree with the friendly folks over in San Diego. This weekend—November 7th to November 8th—is when things will take place, as it’s the 12th annual San Diego Brewers Guild Festival at the Port Pavilion on Broadway Pier. Sips and samples from over 50 breweries from in and around the area will be featured. Tickets will set you back $40, and that includes all the samples that you can enjoy. Food trucks will be on hand if you need something to eat, and there will be some live music to round out the fun.

Where and When to Join in the SF Giants World Series Victory Celebration

October 30, 2014 at 8:29 AM | by | Comments (0)

Congratulations to the San Francisco Giants, as last night in Kansas City they defeated the Royals 3 to 2—and took home their third World Series title in the last five years.

Now it’s time to celebrate over in San Francisco, as the city is getting ready to welcome home the champions. With all these victories in the last few years they know how to throw a party, and it sounds like the celebration and parade is scheduled for this Friday, October 31. That just happens to be Halloween, which is perfect, as the Giants love both orange and black.

We’re sure more and more details will trickle out during the day, but here’s what you need to know to start planning things. The parade is going to star right at noon—local time—over at Market and Steuart streets, and then things will travel down Market Street. The shindig will end at Civic Center Plaza, and we can only expect lots of ticker tape, cheering, celebrating, and general merriment.

How to Get Tickets to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir Christmas Concerts

October 27, 2014 at 12:12 PM | by | Comments (0)

If you missed your early bird opportunity to score tickets to the National Christmas Tree Lighting we’re sorry; however, we have another ticket lottery to enter for a shot at another seasonal celebration.

Over in Salt Lake City the Mormon Tabernacle Choir has been doing their thing for well over 150 years, and from what we hear every Christmas they put on a hell of a show—we just think they’d probably use a different adjective.

October 23, 2014 at 11:41 AM | by | Comments (0)

Mention Oktoberfest to most Germans and expect a few groans. It’s touristy, overpriced, and a poor parody of Bavarian traditions. Still, that doesn’t make it any less fun.

Now that the world’s most popular beer festival is over for another year, we can put away our lederhosen and let our livers enter a year-long rehab. Wait—ain’t nobody got time for that.

Here are just a few relatively unknown German beer festivals that more authentic and way cheaper than Munich’s premier beer fest:

What You Need to Know for Universal Studios' Halloween Horror Nights 24

Where: 6000 Universal Blvd [map], Orlando, FL, United States, 32819
October 16, 2014 at 12:28 PM | by | Comments (0)

2014 brings the 24th annual Halloween Horror Nights to Universal Studios Orlando. You know the drill—each fall crowds converge on the park to experience the transformation; by day Universal Studios welcomes guests of all ages to experience the new Despicable Me ride, ET's bike, and pose for photos with Spongebob, while at night the park turns itself into a giant live action horror movie suited for teenagers and adults.

A gaggle of writers work year-round to come up with the themes and schemes that inhabit Universal's annual Halloween Horror Nights. For this, the 24th incarnation of fright, Universal went heavy on the intellectual property, AMC's Walking Dead is back again, with Dracula, Halloween, Alien Vs Predator and From Dusk Till Dawn comprising 5 of the 8 houses. Furthermore, "scare zones" are back, there are four of them, but overarching themes are still a thing of the past — tag lines rule the day, and this year’s line is “You’ve Been Warned”.

We toured each of the eight haunted houses and the four scare zones, and while all the houses had plenty to offer, here are this year’s rankings:
