Lobby Bar – A Confusing Compendium of FBT News and Views

Bedazzlunk. Check out the diamond edition of our holiday gift guide for some superb gift ideas for the diamond guest in your life.  Alternatively, discreetly borrow any of his or her current possessions and pay to have it bedazzled in diamonds.  Nothing says “I love you” like a diamond-bedazzled toothbrush.

Not accurate. Jonathan Spira gets behind the wheel of a 2016 Acura MDX SH-AWD in an effort to warm up to the brand. He says his dissidence with Acura comes from not having had enough experience driving the cars, but we know it’s really because the automaker stole our parent company’s name… we’ve been feuding with Acura ever since.

Wrongly right. Join us for a night at the theater, where we catch a hilarious performance of “The Play That Goes Wrong.”  In an ironic twist of fate, the play actually went off without a hitch, and the audience requested a refund after the curtain call.

One Gift to rule them all. Just in case nobody got you a gift this year, we have you covered. Enter to win a one-year Delta Sky Club membership, one of six A Great Big World CDs, some seasonally appropriate FBT-branded cutoffs and tanks, or a private performance of Jesse’s award-winning rendition of “Silent Night,” via Skype.

Run them up. It’s time for our favorite year-end poll: did you do a mileage or mattress run this year? For those unfamiliar with the terms, a mileage run involves jogging to work every day for the year while a mattress run requires that you jump up and down on your hotel mattress with the intent of scoring a noise complaint. It’s great fun.

Pro-tips. Check out our list of holiday travel tips to make your trips this season less stressful. We highly recommend layering all of the clothing you’ll need for your trip. This way, you can avoid having to carry an extra bag and you’ll save on checked baggage fees although you may cause a bit of consternation at the security checkpoint when you do a strip tease.

Pajama papa. Delta announced that it will be offering pajamas to passengers traveling in Delta One.  Unfortunately for the airline, I already wear pajamas everywhere, so Delta’s efforts will be in vain.
