Jay Z Has Opened a Nightclub at the Atlanta Airport

201405-hd-jay-z-airport-barjpg

Sure Hov, why not? If you find yourself killing time during a layover at the Atlanta International Airport anytime soon, stop by Jay Z’s elite club, now conveniently located in Concourse D.

Yup, the third location of Hov’s swanky 40/40 club has officially opened at at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, the Associated Press reports. And really, why not? Jay Z can do whatever the heck he wants. Remember: he’s not a businessman, he’s a business, man.

The original 40/40 is in Manhattan, with an additional location in Brooklyn. This new airport version will basically be a “scaled down” replica of original club, and there are plans in the works to create a special VIP section. Otherwise, details are pretty scarce.

Here’s hoping the soundtrack exclusively consists of Aziz Ansari’s club anthem, because it feels like it would be a great fit. Plus, it talks a lot about jets:

Travel Tips from Tim Gunn of Project Runway

201306-hd-tim-gunnjpg

Tim Gunn, the fashion consultant and mentor to the contestants on Lifetime's Project Runway, was standing on the rooftop Garden of New York's Waldorf-Astoria hotel recently, preparing to plant a tree in support of the New York Restoration Project, an environmental nonprofit founded by Gunn's friend Bette Midler. Not only did he dig the hole and plant the tree, he actually tidied up the stray dirt afterward. We asked the dapper Gunn what he takes with him when he travels.

Nobu Hotel to Open in Las Vegas

Nobu Hotel Las Vegas

For those who have ever hoped that dinner at Nobu would last forever, your wishes have been granted. Celebrity chef Nobuyuki Matsuhisa has added hotelier to his résumé with the soon-to-open, 181-room Nobu Hotel ($$) at Caesars Palace, in Las Vegas. Overnight guests get first dibs on tables at the hotel’s restaurant—at 13,000 square feet, the biggest one yet. But they might be more inclined to order up to their David Rockwell–designed rooms (Japanese calligraphy on the walls; walk-in shower with black umi tiles). For breakfast—a first for Matsuhisa—there’s kurobuta sausage, onsen egg, and green-tea waffles, and the mini-bars are filled with blood-orange-chili juice and the chef’s own brand of chilled sake. That’s not all: “Upon arrival, guests will be welcomed with a cup of green tea and a traditional cracker from my hometown, Saitama, Japan,” Matsuhisa told us. “It was important for me to incorporate elements of my heritage and culture.”

Follow Prince Harry to These Caribbean Beaches

Beach Tomato Special Report |  To celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee this year, Prince Harry touched down in Jamaica on Monday, as part of the royal tour of the Caribbean. Since arriving the Prince has been mixing with the locals and keeping himself very busy. There's been rum tasting, dancing and a beading brow or two (note to self, Harry: long sleeved-shirts and midday heat don't go hand in hand). But with so many flawless stretches of sand on offer, we've been pondering which beach he will head to next. And, from the thousands to be savoured, this is our guide to the best beach to meet your Prince.

A Royal Honeymoon in the Seychelles

BBC Travel
|  After months of secrecy, the news of where Prince William and Kate would spend their honeymoon finally leaked this week. Sources say the royal newlyweds are currently in the Seychelles for a 10-day trip.

Back in February, we named "Renting a private island in the Seychelles" as one of our "Five best getaways for a royal honeymoon". It appears we were prescient, since that's exactly what the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge did. Vladi Private Islands has said that it rented the secluded North Island to the royal family.

Get "Lost" in Waikiki: Daniel Dae Kim's Hawaiian Haunts

201005-b-lostjpg

Last night marked the end of an era. In living rooms around the country, fans of ABC's Lost were glued to their television sets for the epic, two hour series finale. (Some extreme fans in NYC even enjoyed Dharma Beer at the Bell House in Brooklyn, while a friend of mine's band, Previously on Lost, performed before screening the finale. Be sure to check them out; they're bound to keep performing long after the show's end.)

That being said, with the end of Lost, fans may feel somewhat, well...lost, themselves. What to do now that there's nothing new to look forward to? Pray for a feature film? A spin-off? (Unless it's about Bernard and Rose, this better not happen.)

Iconic NYC Nightclub Refashioned as Mini-Mall

201005-b-limelight-1jpg
I stopped by last week’s opening of Manhattan’s Limelight Marketplace—a church reincarnated as a notorious '80s nightclub most recently made over as a shopping mall—with an almost irreverent sense of curiosity. With a past so checkered, I expected a mixed crowd, and sure enough, the three-level, multi-wing retail space was brimming with journalists (both skeptical and adoring), local reality stars (think Real Housewives posing with Hunter boots for the press), and the occasional camera-toting wanderer shaking his head in disbelief while reminiscing about parties fueled by pills, music, and illicit behavior.

201005-b-limelight-3jpg
The go-go girls, devilish red lighting, and shady corners are all long gone—they disappeared in the '90s—and the church stood vacant until last winter, when retail developer Jack Menashe saw an opportunity to create his own version of nearby Chelsea Market.

Courtney Love Caught on Tape NOT Trashing a Hotel Room

201001-b-standardjpg

Sometimes bad girl rocker Courtney Love recently posted a video to TwitVid documenting six minutes on New Year's Eve in her hotel room at NYC's Standard.

The video is noteworthy because Ms. Love is calmly applying makeup and blandly rehearsing a Replacements cover song with a guitarist for her performance that evening in the hotel's Boom Boom Room. No one takes drugs (although a hotel employee comes in to see if anyone needs anything from the pharmacy! That never happens when I stay in hotels...). No one shrieks or weeps. Nothing is thrown from the window. Even when Ms. Love reports that some fans knocked on the door looking for her and the hotel employee asks if she'd like to talk to security, she demurs, "No. They were children."
