Just last year, the One World Observatory opened in New York City provided a new view to the city for the public. Along with the observatory at OWTC, the Big Apple is home to a couple other major attractions for high altitude views (the Top of the Rock at Rockefeller Center and the Empire State Building). NYC is undoubtedly the city for urban observation decks, but there are other elevated sightseeing platforms and structure also worth visit. Here are 13 bucket-list worthy observation decks from around world over: Read the rest of this entry
Sunny and warm, you only need a handful of accessories for a trio out to Vegas if you’ll be spending your days being pampered in one of its dozen spas, hanging out in your hotel or resort, or catching rays out by the pool. Shot in the new Delano Las Vegas and by the Mandalay Bay pool, my accessory picks below: Read the rest of this entry
Las Vegas has grown to be a favorite of mine over the last couple of years since it offers so much and has become a top gay destination over the years. Its annual Pride is happening this week, and below see different events to choose from each day if you plan on being in Sin City this week or take a last minute getaway: Read the rest of this entry
Las Vegas was one my first destinations I got to visit as a travel writer and it was a very memorable experience for that and since it was my first time in the so called Sin City. It’s a destination I’d recommend to visit for the diverse amount of attractions, hotels and resorts, restaurants, pools and nightlife options.
Having been again earlier this summer, I’ve selected some of my favorites photos I’ve taken the past couple of years. See what you can in Vegas below in over 35 photos! From The Strip and The LINQ outdoor project, to Downtown Vegas for the Fremont Experience and the Container Park, be inspired to visit soon:
The High Roller, the world’s tallest observation wheel, has officially opened and has been lit up for all the Las Vegas Strip to vast in its neon glory. Standing at 550 feet, it changes the city’s skyline just as the London Eye did 14 years ago over across the pond.
As part of The LINQ by Caesars, it is the key concept in the project of an outdoor area that is now filled with (and will continue to add) new activities, shops, dining options and nightlife. The LINQ will span more than 300,000 square feet, with a pedestrian mall running about one-third of a mile from Las Vegas Boulevard to the High Roller.
There are some hot new happenings and changes down in Las Vegas for this summer, and even though the golden rule is ‘what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas’, we’re here to spill!
The juiciest, and perhaps largest, addition to LGBT entertainment and nightlife in Vegas is the move of hotspot Krave to the downtown district’s historic Fremont Street at the neon-lit mall, Neonopolis. There, it’s been reestablished as Krave Massive, which has just opened its doors and will be expanding into a mega-club that will feature five uniquely themed dance rooms, reminding me of the South Beach gay party house, Twist.
The LIGHT club opens up this month and marks the third nightlife venture for Cirque Du Soleil in Las Vegas.
Get turned on by the latest installment from Cirque Du Soleil, LIGHT. The upcoming nightclub at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas will bring together sound and art for club goers to experience in a way that does not involve sitting in a theater. While it is not a gay club, all of Cirque Du Soleil properties are gay friendly (and there is even a thriving gay night at one of them), and LIGHT will surely be one to check out during a night in Sin City after it opens Memorial Day Weekend.
Look Towards the LIGHT
Designed to play with your senses, LIGHT will merge the world-renowned creativity and theatrics with high-tech production and internationally acclaimed DJs and performers to “redefine a night out.” Upon arrival, guests are expected to enter the realm of the unknown, as everyone will be part of the “show”. The DJs will be aided by exclusive performance elements and visuals provided by costumes and unique choreography, video mapping, lighting, sound, and special effects experts Moment Factory, which has provided effects for more than 300 events, shows and installations for the likes of Cirque du Soleil, Disney, Nine Inch Nails, Céline Dion, and Madonna—to name just a few.
Unveiling almost 10 years ago, Zumanity provides visitors with “the sensual side of Cirque du Soleil” at its Las Vegas home in the New York-New York Hotel & Casino. As the first “adult-themed” show in the Cirque du Soleil brand, Zumanity offers something for everyone, of appropriate age, regardless of gender and their sexuality to enjoy.
This year, the cabaret-style show introduces more man eye candy for those of us who appreciate the male form. In ‘Scottish Fantasy,’ we are given attention to a shirtless, dominating Scot, played by artist Alex Stabler. Stabler is decked out in a jockstrap-like, yellow plaid patteren kilt that is designed by Thierry Mugler, whom designed all the outfits in Zumanity.
