WASHINGTON – Nearly six years ago, on an unseasonably warm April night in Washington, Lauren Clark was cooling down from a jog when she spotted a man in the distance. She quickened her pace, hurried past him and, for a moment, considered crossing the street. Her fear seemed irrational – paranoid, even – until the threat became real. The man grabbed the slender 27-year-old hairstylist from behind, thrust his hand between her legs and covered her mouth. He slammed her body to the sidewalk. A pair of black spandex leggings was the only barrier between her and the hand that would not let go. Rape seemed imminent. Death, quite possible.

Monday newsletters always feature top 10 travel lists to inspire. Today (January 21, 2019): Top 10 Leading Hotels of the World. The Leading Hotels of the World (LHW) is an exclusive collection of more than 400 luxury hotels and resorts in over 80 countries. LHW does not own hotels; it rather offers a reservation service for independent hotels and supports sales and marketing, advertising and public relations, financial services, quality control, and hotel inspections for its member properties. LHW has several iconic properties in its portfolio, some of them ranking among the best hotels in the world. And staying at a LHW hotel got a lot more interesting this year because LHW recently launched a new loyalty program (which I will explain in my blogpost this Friday) that allows you to earn points and redeem them for free stays at LWH properties worldwide (in addition to special benefits and discounts). Here’s a list of my 10 … [Read more...] about Top 10 Leading Hotels of the World
The city of Boston has 23 official neighborhoods, all of which have their own distinct culinary scene. Throw in the cities and towns just outside of Boston’s borders with their own thriving restaurants, and even the most dedicated gourmand could spend a lifetime eating their way through the area. With that in mind, we put together a list of Boston neighborhoods’ essential restaurants (and we went a little beyond Boston, too). The spots below are where we recommend you dine wherever you find yourself, from Allston to Eastie, Hyde Park to Somerville. Allston/Brighton Deep EllumTake the beer snob in your life to Deep Ellum; blow them away with the extensive IPA and draft selection. In the warmer months, try to grab a seat with a big group on the tiny patio and pick at the house sausage plate or spice-rubbed chicken wings. If you’re hungry at night, Deep Ellum’s late-night menu kicks in every day at 11:30 p.m., aka the perfect time for a $6 burger nightcap. … [Read more...] about The ultimate Boston neighborhood restaurant guide
