The TWA Flight Center in New York Will Again Open to the Public for One Day

September 30, 2014 at 12:20 PM | by | Comments (0)

Attention architecture, history, design, aviation, and photography buffs! The TWA Flight Center at New York's JFK Airport will again be open to the public for one day: Saturday, October 11, from 11am to 3:30pm.

The reason? The 12th annual openhousenewyork festival (OHNY), a weekend event that flings open private doors to showcase typically hidden gems of the city over weekend of October 11-12.

Although OHNY began in 2002, the TWA Center has only been welcoming the OHNY public since 2011, and each year is typically considered the last chance to see it in this raw, restored state before developers re-purpose it. Recent plans, now shelved, involved turning it into a hotel, to be added to the property portfolio of hotelier Andre Balazs. His loss is our gain, and access will again be free on October 11.

Last-Minute Oktoberfest in Munich is Always a Good Idea

Where: Munich, Germany
September 10, 2014 at 11:55 AM | by | Comments (0)

Oktoberfest in Munich begins September 20 and ends October 5. Looking at the calendar, that's a scant 10 days until the tapping of the first keg! Despite what you may be thinking, it's still not too late to make the decision to finally "do" Oktoberfest this year.

During the festival, the city's Theresienwiese event grounds (or simply "Wiesn" for short) will be teeming with tens of thousands of revelers daily, traveling from beer tent to champagne tent, to schnapps booth. Champagne tent?! Schnapps booth?! Yes, there are special zones and kiosks for all traditional German alcohols, but beer is the chief interest and, as such, the big-name beer tents fill up early in the day.
