Forget Spring Cleaning; Fall is for Travel Reorganization

September 17, 2014 at 11:33 AM | by | Comments (0)

Why is there only one season earmarked for organization? Spring cleaning is the shaking out of rugs, dusting off of shelves, and restocking the pantry after winter, but we propose a similar approach for fall, focused on travel.

Whether you’ve spent the whole summer hopping continents or just headed out on a few road trips, right now is the ideal time to unzip wallets and air out duffel bags in anticipation of yet more travel.

Prepare now for winter & holiday travel by:

How to Get Tickets to the Playboy Mansion Halloween Party

September 16, 2014 at 3:13 PM | by | Comments (0)

Hugh Hefner is getting ready to welcome the world's sexiest ghosts and ghouls to the annual Playboy Halloween Party.

The Official Playboy Halloween Party at the Playboy Mansion, taking place on Oct. 25, is known for its haunted houses, spooky performers, musical guests, good eats and, of course, open bars.

As usual, the event is put on by Karma and though the most affordable (as in four-figure) tickets are sold out, there's still a few "VIP" packages in the low five-figures, if you're keen to see with the inside of the infamous mansion looks like. Spoiler alert: VICE found it depressing.

Fall is the Time to See the Colors of Cano Cristales in Colombia

September 15, 2014 at 1:03 PM | by | Comments (0)

You wouldn't give it a second look most days during the year, but fall is the time when the Cano Cristales River outside of La Macarena in Colombia becomes otherworldly. From the end of summer through November, it earns its nickname of "The River of Five Colors," showing off brilliant displays of yellow, blue, black, green, and red.

The unique and predominant color of red is thanks to a river weed that flowers and makes it seem as if the water itself has changed colors, and many will even see shades of purple thrown in. Other plant life and the river's natural composition create the contrast of colors, and they can be quite spectacular, so bright and bold that they seem artificial.

NFL Rivalry Travel: Plan Now for Patriots and Broncos

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

Even with week one of the NFL season just in the rearview mirror it’s time to start looking toward the future, as it’s time to plan ahead if you want to check out one of the season’s biggest rivalries. Two of the best teams with two of the best quarterbacks meet this November, as the Denver Broncos visit the New England Patriots on November 2.

We’ll assume that both teams will be having strong seasons heading into week nine, so the outcome could certainly have potential to affect how things go heading into the postseason. Not to mention the competition and rivalry between Peyton Manning and Tom Brady.

September 10, 2014 at 1:36 PM | by | Comments (0)

As the temperatures drop and days shorten, the folks at Gold Coast Tourism really want to remind you that the opposite is happening Down Under in Australia's. Gold Coast's beach metropolis is synonymous with endless summer, and is the star of this new gorgeous time-lapse video.

From sunrise to sunset, the "glitter strip" comes alive with waves crashing on the shore, lots of SPF and plenty of shots that show off the beauty of the area. With obligatory shots of Q1 skyscraper (with its highest building climb in the southern hemisphere), and plenty of surfers catching some swells, this four-minute spot is a must-watch for a dreary day.

The Best Airport Starbucks Locations for a Pumpkin Spice Latte Fix

September 5, 2014 at 9:08 AM | by | Comment (1)

It’s time to celebrate the season, and we only know way to best do things—with Starbucks and the autumnal delight known as the Pumpkin Spice Latte. The seasonal spiced latte concoction is back for year eleven, and there’s nowhere better to enjoy one than in a climate-controlled concourse. Here’s some of our favorite airport Starbucks across the nifty fifty where you can enjoy one too:

Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport

Go with the Starbucks in Concourse A near Gate 40 within the McNamara Terminal—that’s the one where all the Delta flights do their thing. It’s near the airport’s main fountain, and the big windows here give a good view of the 747s heading overseas. There are two lines, so you can score a drink even when in a hurry.

Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport

There’s a newer airport Starbucks at Atlanta’s Concourse F. Of course they have Pumpkin Spice Lattes, but they also offer up those new Fizzio Handcrafted Soda things. There’s decent seating here—and comfortable couches in the level below—and the concourse is a little quieter during the day before the international flights depart.
