Really, there is no catch here. The internet doing good things. Crazy, but true.
Also, don’t forget
I’m saving this for next time I think about going to
Paris. I haven’t listened to it yet, but seriously, it’s This America Life, so duh.

Next time you’re in
NYC, why not go see an opera? The tickets are surprisingly affordable (from $30). And even if you’re not an opera fan, this is a unique and interesting experience.
The Metropolitan Opera (NYC)
Funnily enough, this tip came as a recommendation from
Andy Ihnatko on a tech podcast. Listen in at this spot for more inspiration about the opera. 🤷🏻♂️

The McKittrick Hotel in the Chelsea neighborhood of in New York City is not actually a hotel (as far as I can tell). It’s more of a bizarre collection of venues and edgy entertainment.

about page sets the tone…
Completed in 1939, The McKittrick Hotel was intended to be New York City’s finest and most decadent luxury hotel of its time. Six weeks before opening, and two days after the outbreak of World War II, the legendary hotel was condemned and left locked, permanently sealed from the public. Until now…
This “hotel” features the creepy and insanely immersive
Sleep No More, a bar on the roof, a bar in the basement, magic shows, cabaret, anything weird and especially 1930’s-themed.
This may be the weirdest and most fun place in NYC (that I know of). I’m definitely going back if I ever get the chance.
Okay, let’s keep the
European spa / bath / swimming pool tour going. This time up: Budapest!
Another cool thing to see next time I’m in NYC!
