Mamma Mia! The next generation of pop-up dinner is coming to London.

 

Björn Ulvaeus, the Swedish songwriter, member of ABBA and co-composer of Mamma Mia!, is taking the beloved musical to the next level in summer 2019. Björn was part of the visionary team that brought the stage musical and movies to life, and is now expanding his vision to include a physical location where ABBA lovers can party like they’re dancing queens.

 

The immersive Mamma Mia! The Party experience will take place in a recreation of the Greek tavern from the first movie. Around 500 guests per night will be able to dine on Mediterranean food while the staff puts on an interactive show, complete with sing-alongs from the hit musical. Each dining reservation ticket comes with a three-course Mediterranean meal that includes a mezze selection, delicious meat dishes with tempting sides and authentic Greek desserts. The best part? At the end of dinner, the tables will be cleared away so everyone can dance their hearts out on a disco dance floor. It’s time to break out your 1970s gear.

 

The dining experience first launched in Stockholm, Sweden, in 2016 and continues to sell out each seating. This second location will be set inside a dedicated space in The O2 at Greenwich peninsula, one of the world’s most popular music and entertainment venues. The experience will last around five hours and tickets can already be reserved online here.

Foods to Pack for a Long-Haul Flight (and How to Get Them Through Security)

 As airlines start nickel and dime-ing their way into the world’s wallets, travelers have had to get crafty in order to get around newly enacted add-on fees, especially when it comes to in-flight meals. Since this luxury is no longer guaranteed on some flights, particularly on low-cost, long-haul vessels, and because airport food is notoriously overpriced, passengers pack their own food to bring on these long flights. But what types of food are allowed to pass through security and also last multiple hours on a plane in varying temperatures?

Hotel Zeppelin, San Francisco

I lived in San Francisco during college so coming to visit the city and see all the changes was exciting. The Hotel Zeppelin was built in a once slightly shabby area that has since come alive with new hotels and restaurants for travelers looking for something different. We arrived at noon on a Friday afternoon and were immediately greeted by the hotel staff at the front desk. They were able to accommodate an early check-in, completed in just a few minutes. The lobby is as hip as the hotel name sounds, but it also offered a cozy atmosphere, with a roaring fire and comfy couches and chairs in the lounge area. Unique wall art, statues and lighting remind you of the cool factor.

Coffee Table Books for the Adult-ish Traveler

There are few things as adult-ish as a well-designed living space. When you stop strewing your Ikea coffee table with old magazines and straw wrappers, and start creating a “lewk” that’s more your style, it’s time to invest in a coffee table book. Sometimes pricey, these are not the tomes you curl up with in your cozy chair. They’re often hefty, artistic and fun and, if chosen correctly, a true representation of your own sense of style and interests.
