Joshua Tree

We found ourselves in the desert recently to attend Desert & Denim a raucous tradeshow showcasing menswear brands from across the country. This was our first trip to Joshua Tree and we were amazed by its vast beauty. The desert floor, sprouting with Joshua Trees throughout reaching up to the blue, blue sky. I could wander these parts for hours, but only had a few days. We stayed in an Airbnb, close to the National Park or you can camp in the desert, which I plan to do on our next trip.

So this may have been our first trip here, but definitely not our last.

New York - Ace Hotel

On a recent trip to New York City, we had the pleasure of staying at the Ace Hotel. Right next to the Empire State Building, we were in the central hub of the city. Easy transit to get anywhere and everywhere in Manhattan. A non-stop array of activities to fill your day starting with freshly brewed coffee from Stumptown and an open lobby that begins to fill up around 6:00am. The lobby bustles all day with business folks and students alike typing away as the light from their screens shines upon their faces. There are two restaurants at Ace, John Dory Oyster Bar and The Breslin Bar and Dining Room. A highly recommended choice for a hip hotel with great food, amenities, and service. This may have been our first stay in an Ace, but definitely not our last.
