This past Friday in an intimate gathering on the Sunset Terrace at Mondrian South Beach over a year’s worth of hard work came to fruition. Collaborating with my talented friends The Principals, we introduced a set of dominoes, made by hand in Brooklyn, NY out of bronze. Over hours of drinks, we played until the sun set and the darkness finally pushed us out. A big thank you goes out to the Morgans Hotel Group who accommodated us on this special occasion. Look for something even more special from the both of us in the coming week but, for now, we hope you enjoy the Bronze Bones.

Boasting 270º degree views with windows that open, this room is perfect for experiencing the ever-changing light and weather of of San Francisco. If for some reason you feel ansy and want to explore, the Clift’s marquee bar the Redwood Room is a specially designed place to have a couple drinks and make some new friends. 100% worth the visit.

Situated in Boston, the Ames Hotel sits diagonal to the historic Old State House, in the first skyscraper the city ever raised. After crazily sitting vacant for 8 years, the hotel was opened in 2009 by the Morgans Hotel Group who tapped the Rockwell Group to handle the building’s architectural planning and interior design. In addition to the 113 contemporary rooms, Ames also boasts a foodie destination in the form of Woodward (manned by executive chef Mark Goldberg), which is rightfully billed “A Modern Day Tavern.” The morning I dined, I had a delicious Eggs Benedict with chorizo and smoked paprika hollandaise (slide 17). If eating is not your thing, opt for a Smuttynose Woodward Ale which is exclusive to the restaurant and brewed in New Hampshire… and possibly some oysters too, just for the sake of having oysters.

Unexpected to see that kind of architectural beauty in North Korea, but the 105 story hotel is expectedly empty on the inside.

If you require things on vacation like fresh air, nature, and a room with a dominating view, the Moraine Lake Lodge is your place. Situated on the shore of Moraine Lake amongst the Valley of the Ten Peaks in Banff National Park, the lodge is only accessible between June 1st and October 1st. In this brief time, visitors are exposed to the Canadian Rockies in its fairest weather. Featuring activities including canoeing, hiking, and relaxing, the lodge is a destination for decompression. As an added bonus for those overdosing on technology, there are no phones, nor televisions at the lodge, just some all-too-necessary wifi.

Until last night at the debut of the 2011 StandART video series at the Top of the Standard, I had never seen a man barefoot, donning a wig and tiny, terrycloth bathrobe singing beautiful, entertaining songs that many floors up in a building. Kalup Linzy reminds me of a cross between Cody Chestnutt and Wesley Willis. In regards to the new videos curated by Creative Time for The Standard Hotel chain, Terence Koh’s ”Rabbit Holy Days” which was filmed onsite on the eighteenth floor was the standout amongst peers.
