Weddings / Bachelor/ette Parties

Not surprisingly in a city as large as Mexico City, those choosing to have bachelor parties in DF will never regret the decision, as it’s going to be a big day and late night.

 

Start the festivities with a bit of paintball or, as those that live in Mexico City and elsewhere call it, Gotcha!! While there are a number of options, you’ll likely be best served by Dragon Gotcha, hosting bachelor parties for years and providing ample obstacles for you to shoot.

 

While most think of locations like Cancun or Cabo as ideal for bachelor parties, there is no reason why Mexico City shouldn’t make this list. Like New York, the city doesn’t sleep and there is no shortage of things to do. Dinner starts late in Mexico City, so head to the Arena Mexico for some lucho libre before you get fueled up for the big night. This Mexican wrestling spectacle is faker than the WWE but a whole lot of fun. You’ll see 85-year-old women cursing like sailors; 33-cent tacos are brilliant on the street before you enter; and inside you’ll get $3 liters of Corona in your seat. Make sure to get as close as possible and don your masks.

 

Since Polonco’s main strip of clubs and bars will be your ultimate destination, get close and go to “Mexico’s Ruth’s Chris or Gibson’s” in the form of Harry’s for some good conversation and some Kobe beef. Harry’s is a proper steakhouse and a fantastic protein-providing springboard.

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?

Work and Play in Italy

ONCE THE FINAL MEETING WRAPS and the last contract is signed and sealed with a handshake, what’s next? Do you catch a flight back home or do you take advantage of the destination? If your next business trip is to Italy, we suggest adding a few more days to explore the country’s most amazing hot spots. Make time for more than a mouthwater- ing Italian meal in these three cities.

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.

Work and Play in Italy

Once business concludes, a world of wonder awaits in many of Italy’s incredible cities.
