Live in Atlanta? Or perhaps feel like you do? At least the Airport is inside the Perimeter. Take our 2013 Business Travel Survey and let us know how often you will pass through ATL in the coming year.

Pass the Ambien. How much jet lag does 35,000 miles of flying over two months induce? Look no further than our own resident masochist, Jonathan Spira, for some words of advice.

Habit Forming. The Empire State Building liked being bathed in color on Election Night so much; it’s having a new multi-color LED lighting system installed.

Flipped. The storied New York Plaza has a new owner. See how much it takes for you to own a Manhattan landmark.

Detox. Dan Collins thinks he’s back in Bavaria during a heat wave, but is really just at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort and Spa. See how it stacks up to Mad King Ludwig’s hilltop cottage.

Rollercoaster. The Lincoln MKS replaces a car with depression-inducing handling and performance. Find out how different the EcoBoost-equipped replacement is..

We can breathe again. Paul Riegler takes our subtle hint that he needs to freshen his breath. Find out how he likes his new toothbrush.

Pit Stop. Christian Stampfer chooses the scenic route over the Autobahn with the BMW 320d Touring, but not until he stops to buy an Austrian toll sticker.
