A Spoonful of Lobby Bar Makes the World Go Round

Raiders of the lost Buick. Join the unlikely team of Mississippi Riegler and Indiana Jones 50 years in the future as they unearth a golden Buick LeSabre and fight off a rival archaeologist as well as some Nazis who mistake the Buick for the Ark of the Covenant. In the end (spoiler alert!), the intrepid duo drives off in the Buick but don’t get very far because they forgot that gasoline stations became obsolete 20 years earlier.

Almighty starch. If your phone keeps dying midday you should check out our tips on how to optimize your battery. Just carry around a potato and some copper wire and you can fashion a quick DIY portable charger, which will recharge your iPhone or Android to 1% in only 72 hours!

All mixed up. Jonathan Spira heads to the theater to see “A Doll’s House, Part 2.” In part 2, one of the characters comes back to life, qualifying the play as a zombie production, so be prepared to see fans dressed up in zombie costumes and make-up, and help yourself to some brains during the intermission.

Infinite jest. Join us behind the wheel of the 2017 Infiniti QX30 Sport, now with reduced headroom. Thankfully, the automaker offers a new extra-cost feature, Infinite Headroom, that, with the press of a button, the QX30 can raise the roof of the car, although keep in mind that this will reduce fuel economy.

The college experience. Join Jesse Sokolow at the Aloft Raleigh in North Carolina. As the hotel is located on a college campus, the Aloft has a special tradition of bequeathing guests who are concluding their visit with a graduation cap and gown, a diploma, and $75,000 of debt.

Objection? Ejection!  Airlines are continuing to make headlines for booting passengers off flights, but JetBlue is unapologetic about its decision to kick a family of five off one of its jets. At least JetBlue ejected the family before taking off. Just last week, Delta kicked off three passengers mid-flight at 31,000 feet, offering them a pack of peanuts, a small can of Bloody Mary mix, and a parachute. Instruction and training are provided to those in the first-class cabin but coach passengers are on their own.

Trees to meet you. Hilton Hotels and Resorts announced that it is introducing new enhancements to its Garden Inn brand of mid-priced hotels. The new hotel tier will be called Forest Inns and will feature live trees in every room, plus Allegra and Claritin for those who may be allergic to the new flora.
