Bubble Glamping
Campera Hotel
REPORTER: Alyssa Brown



Located in the wine-centric region of Baja California, this Mexican glamping spot is a creative and fresh take on the typical canvas tent camp. You can spend your b-day weekend at Campera Hotel in a clear-span bubble tent in the middle of a vineyard. Just you, your best travel buddy, a real comfy bed, and about five million stars. How’s that for a bucket list worthy birthday extravaganza?

If you haven’t heard, Baja is the next hot destination for food and wine aficionados. As many of the roads are unpaved and wineries yet to be discovered by the masses, there’s serenity unlike any other wine region we’ve visited.

Flower Fields
Carlsbad, CA
REPORTER: The Venue Report



Spring is literally in the air thanks to the California super bloom, leaving us dreaming of the outdoors to breath in the fresh (and slightly pollenated) air and to stop to smell the roses, wild mustard, and daisies. As temperatures rise to that perfect 75 and sunny, we were on the lookout for ways to, ahem, get out and gather with our besties, S.O.’s and families. As we completed our spring wish list, the Carlsbad flower fields began to bloom and our plans fell into place. 

The stunning rainbow of flowers produced by the 50 acres of Giant Tecolote Ranunculus inspired our afternoon in the fields of picnicking, frolicking and champagne-ing for our newest installment of #ThePicnicProject (remember when our Media Design Manager, Nathan, celebrated his birthday with a picnic overlooking Yosemite Valley?). After all, is there a more replicable, ‘wait, I can actually do this,’ grab-and-go gathering moment than a picnic? Load up your baskets, pack your blankets and don’t forget the bread and bubbly for the must-do experience of spring.  

*No flowers were harmed in the making of this picnic

Lucas Museum Of Narrative Art
Los Angeles
REPORTER: The Venue Report

 

After months of trying to get Lucas's master plans for his Narrative Art Museum approved in San Francisco (Treasure Island) and Chicago, the team decided to relocate and revise their plans to fit the requirements of Exposition Park in Los Angeles, California. Just South of USC and neighboring the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. The exhibition is reported to be the most architecturally innovative structure the park has seen to date with designs from no other than Chinese architect, Ma Yansong. Yansong is known for founding, MAD Architects and was the mastermind behind the eclectically modern Absolute Towers, The Ordos Museum, Harbin Opera House, Conrad Hotel and the Sheraton Huzhou Hot Spring Resort, just to name a few. 

The current blueprints resemble exactly what you would imagine from George Lucas, a futuristic space-ship. However, these renderings are unlike the Star Wars fighters we've seen in his Academy Award winning movies. Taking over two parking lots on Vermont Avenue, the permanent installation will not just be a Star Wars gallery full of R2D2 robot replicas. Lucas envisions the museum to house Hollywood memorabilia as well as figurative art by Norman Rockwell and many more.

Ever since Cuba opened its doors to tourists, we’ve been having level-9 freakouts about how stunning the small Caribbean country is. With its beautiful and crusty old 16th century architecture and classic Spanish Colonial style, Cuba offers an experience that seems to be almost frozen in time. The warm beaches and lush overgrowth of the countryside, the bustling beat of Havana, and the incredibly charming people of this island make it seem alive with authenticity.

The brilliant duo behind the lens at travel and photography blog This is The Place I Was Telling You About recently trekked to Cuba with the Cuba Travel Network. Not only were they willing to share their insanely gorgeous photos, but they’ve also given us the full scoop on their trip. Read on for the highlights.
