Mixed media artist and notable travel writer Vaughn Lowery reviews Romer Hell's Kitchen in NYC for 360 MAGAZINE.

ROMER HELL’S KITCHEN

Romer Hell’s Kitchen [RHK] is an architectural gem nestled in the theater district of Manhattan. Designed by Goodrich, with interiors by Islyn Studio. A mixture of vintage and vibrant. With 295 keys, this is an excellent property for someone who wants to be in close proximity to some of the best dive bars, restaurants, and plays.

As a boutique, it features an eclectic colorway of coral, sea moss, sage, bone, and scarlet, mimicking the award-winning Mad Men series on AMC. Throughout the lobby and common areas, there is a strong presence of muted hues, textures, and wood. Unlike its rivals in the area, RHK is illuminated with amber ambient lighting. Every inch is infused with modern prints and contemporary abstract paintings. The delicate decor deepens as you enter the building.

Unlike kitsch, the deep blue hallways transition into nostalgic units that bring back memories of the past. The spaciousness of our deluxe corner suite with king bed was remarkable. Inside, the olive velour chaise was paired with an overhanging lamp and adjacent fixtures, which at times felt regal. An inviting atmosphere for a staycation or a business trip with a hint of spontaneity. The environment is conducive to meeting people from all walks of life. Nevertheless, the entire community has a handful of jazz lounges for music lovers and LGBTQIA lounges for the free-spirited.

In case you’re looking for recommendations, just scan the QR code on the back of your room key. A web-based application is linked to it, which informs about local events, specialized eateries, and intriguing activities, including free bike rentals for a ride in Central Park. Although there is no on-site fitness facility, you will find a day pass to one or more exercise institutions within walking distance. And if all else fails, simply visit the front desk for off-the-beaten-track options.

Nevertheless, be sure to check out the cufflinks on the lower levels of the Corner Store and the piano bar, which hosts a happy hour on certain days.

In short, Romer Hell’s Kitchen is a *pet-friendly pathway for those who possess style, confidence, and wish to camouflage into the concrete. After all, it’s a destination that heavily impacts parochial partnerships and enterprises.


*50lb weight limit, $100 per stay,OR $150 with the package purchase, includes pet-specific welcome amenities and exclusive neighborhood pet-friendly perks.

Giant size hulk via 360 Mag.

GIANT-SIZE HULK

In 2024, Marvel Comics is proudly bringing back GIANT-SIZE comics—more monumental and earth-shaking than ever before!

Honoring the 50th anniversary of the epic Giant-Size storytelling of the 1970s, these new Giant-Size issues will be home to pivotal status quo shifts, exciting first appearances, and dramatic developments each month! Following January’s GIANT-SIZE SPIDER-MAN #1, February’s GIANT-SIZE FANTASTIC FOUR #1, and March’s GIANT-SIZE SPIDER-GWEN #1 comes Phillip Kennedy Johnson and Andrea Broccardo’s GIANT-SIZE HULK #1.

Arriving in April, GIANT-SIZE HULK #1 will fit at home with Johnson’s horror-fueled current run of Incredible Hulk where Bruce Banner is embarking on a soul-crushing journey against supernatural forces. Now comes a showdown with a threat so big that it can only be contained in a giant-size issue! All aboard for  a nonstop fight between the Jade Giant and a terrifying new foe named Patchwork Jack, all taking place amidst an explosive train ride!

Riding the rails is no walk in the park – especially for the INCREDIBLE HULK! And particularly when something – no, someONE – has been stolen from him by a gruesome new threat with evil machinations in mind. Clear the tracks – the HULK is coming through!!!

“The North Star I’ve been following on Incredible Hulk is to make EVERY ISSUE a horror and action showcase for the rockstar artists I’ve been so fortunate to work with,” Johnson explained. “I’ve pulled out all the stops to ensure readers don’t miss out on a single page of this book’s potential: new lore, new monsters, fan-favorite guest appearances from across the Marvel U, the most jaw-dropping fights imaginable, the gnarliest transformations Hulk has ever experienced… I want this to be a run that readers never forget. And when my editors asked for a GIANT-SIZE INCREDIBLE HULK one-shot, I knew we had to ramp all that up even more.

“The story we’re telling in GIANT-SIZE HULK #1 has been in the back of my mind since I started writing the series, just waiting for the right moment to be told,” he continued. “It sums up the horror-driven direction of the book, and features some of the most haunting and explosive visuals we’ve seen so far. It also features the first-ever appearance of a horrifying new character: Patchwork Jack, who I can’t wait for readers to meet. I promise you: no Hulk fan will want to miss this issue.”

Like all of next year’s GIANT-SIZE installments, GIANT-SIZE HULK #1 will boast a cover by superstar artist Bryan Hitch and reprint a classic adventure of its titular star, INCREDIBLE HULK #372. Part of Peter David and Dale Keown’s character-defining run and featuring high-speed action and heartrending drama, it’s a Hulk tale for the ages!

Check out Hitch’s cover and stay tuned for more GIANT-SIZE announcements in the months ahead! For more information, visit Marvel.com.

BEYOND GREEN IMPACT REPORT

BEYOND GREEN SHOWCASES THEIR BRAND COMMITMENT WITH FIRSTGLOBAL IMPACT REPORT

Beyond Green, a global portfolio of planet Earth’s most sustainable hotels, has announced the launch of its first-ever Global Impact Report underscoring the brand’s commitment to sustainability and the effect of its member portfolio’s worldwide ESG initiatives. The report, available online at www.staybeyondgreen.com/GIR, utilizes data resulting from a Beyond Green member sustainability survey to demonstrate the power of sustainable tourism in safeguarding the planet’s natural environment, celebrating cultural heritage, and enhancing the lives of local communities – representing the future of travel.

Established by Preferred Travel Group in April 2021, Beyond Green unites sustainability leaders worldwide to transform the travel industry with each member property vetted according to more than 50 sustainability indicators that align with global sustainable tourism standards and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. In an era where environmental and social awareness significantly influences travelers’ decisions on destinations, accommodations, and businesses to support, the report serves as an educational tool, making sustainability accessible to the everyday traveler while going beyond the environmental aspect. Beyond Green’s core mission of representing hotels that demonstrate sustainability leadership across the three key pillars of Nature, Culture, and Community ensures travelers connect with vetted accommodations that actively contribute to the well-being of the places and communities they explore.

“I am thrilled to share Beyond Green’s first Global Impact Report, these results shine a light on the amazing work our members do across the three key pillars of sustainable tourism, Nature, Community, and Culture, demonstrating how critical this topic is and why we are passionate and committed stewards of this philosophy. Together, we can harness the power of travel to be a force for good, leaving behind a legacy for generations of travelers to come.” Says Lindsey Ueberroth, CEO of Preferred Travel Group.

 

Key report highlights include:

 

·         Dedicated Sustainability Positions: Over 90% of Beyond Green members have a dedicated Sustainability Manager or equivalent position or team, steering the evolution and on-site implementation of member’s sustainability programs.

·         Reducing and Eliminating Single-Use Plastics: 100% of Beyond Green members have eliminated single-use plastic water bottles from their operations. Additional efforts to reduce and eliminate single-use plastics include utilizing biodegradable packaging and employing more sustainable materials throughout hotel operations, such as re-usable room keys made with wood or bamboo.

o    For example, a unique glass bottle crusher creates sand used across The Ranch at Laguna Beach’sGEO-certified golf course in California – while also reducing glass waste stream by 90%.

·         Renewable Energy: Nearly 70% of Beyond Green members utilize renewable energy sources, including solar panels, wind turbines, and other sources such as biomass derived from certified wood pellets.

o    The Brando excels in leveraging renewables, utilizing everything from renewable solar fields to an innovative Sea Water Air Conditioning (SWAC) system that harnesses cold water from the deep sea to naturally cool spaces without damaging hydrofluorocarbons.

·         Endangered Species Protection: Beyond Green members actively contribute to the protection of over 24 animal species and 1 plant species registered on either the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List or the US Endangered Species list.  

o    A leader in marine conservation, andBeyond Mnemba Island worked in partnership with the Ministry of Blue to establish Mnemba Island Marine Special Area (MIMSA), which grants additional protection to the surrounding biodiverse waters. The property also serves as one of the few protected nesting sites for the endangered green sea turtle – and allows lodge guests to join in on monitoring efforts.

·         Philanthropy & Donations: Through direct financial, in-kind, and guest donations,Beyond Green members donated a total of $3,138,449 during 2021-2022, supporting local communities, as well as natural and cultural initiatives.

·         Protecting Cultural Heritage: Properties authentically share local cultural heritage with guests through a distinct sense of place that reflects the traditional architecture and regional décor, culinary programs, and immersive guest experiences that explore local history, folklore, and art.

o    Three Camel Lodge in Mongolia’s Gobi Desert safeguards the region’s storied traditions and living heritage through a project to restore the Mongolian Bankhar, a breed of mastiff dog native to the surrounding steppe.

·         Community, Social and Economic Well-Being: Members actively support local communities, by hiring locally, partnering with local businesses, artists, and artisans, and contributing to micro-enterprise projects, education, health, and other community development priorities.

o    The Parkside Hotel & Spa on Vancouver Island became the first hotel in British Columbia to start a Memorandum of Reconciliation (MOR) to “recognize the historical relationship of the Songhees Nation with the land upon which The Parkside stands.” Guests are invited to join the Lekwungen, known today as the Songhees and Esquimalt People, and learn about indigenous culture through guided canoe and walking tours that reveal a unique perspective on the city’s heritage unknown to most travelers.

These transformative efforts led to Beyond Green’s recent recognition as an honoree in the Travel + Leisure 2023 Global Vision Awards, celebrating innovators and sustainability leaders.

Beyond Green members demonstrate what is possible when world-class hospitality and sustainable solutions converge, and their collective positive impact in supporting local Nature, Culture and Community represents the transformation of travel; where exceptional guest stays are tied to the protection of our planet and well-being of its inhabitants. They inspire through action and continuously set the bar for sustainability leadership around the world, offering a guiding light and invitation for others to join this essential journey.” Says Nina Boys, Vice President of Sustainability, Beyond Green Travel.

Deliver a package that will make history with music as your ally

Humankind has been forced to live underground, in the city of ANTRO. It’s a dirty and dark hole divided into geographical strata where the inhabitants of the lowest levels fight for survival doing forced labour, while the ones in the highest levels rule over the new underground world. The government has become a totalitarian system, handing over the power to a corporation known as La Cúpula. Freedom of speech has been censored. Art and music, forbidden.

In this city, you’ll play as Nittch, a nihilist and lonely delivery guy that survives in the lowest level of ANTRO. Your mission is to deliver a package to an unknown recipient. That’s how your long journey begins, catching the attention of La Cúpula and joining the rebellion of the Discordants. You better be ready to prevent this unusual world from subduing you, because the key to revolutionizing ANTRO is literally on your shoulders!

Follow the development of ANTRO by wishlisting it on Steam.

All proceeds from the event will benefit Firework Foundation. Founded in 2019 by Katy and her sister, Angela Lerche, the foundation’s mission is to empower children from underserved communities by igniting their inner light through the arts. 

The tournament kicked off with a round robin of players that included Jason Collins, Kate Hudson, James Valentine, Lauren Sanchez, Corey Gamble, Meghan Trainor, Daryl Sabara, Rob Lowe and John Owen Lowe, local pickleball enthusiasts and several top professional pickleball players – Federico Staksrud, Mary Brascia, Maggie Brascia and Thomas Wilson.

Topping off the event, which was produced by Ngoc Nguyen (Nguyen Strategies), was a mic’d exhibition that pitted Katy and Federico Staksrud against Orlando Bloom and Maggie Brascia. After an intensely close match, Team Katy emerged victorious 13-11. Celsius 

sponsored the VIP Players Lawn and other event sponsors included Stanley, The Pick, Malk Milk, CRBN and Selkirk, which gave guests a chance to preview their unreleased LUXX paddles and Pro S1 balls, which won’t be on the market until later this year. Guests enjoyed sipping on De Soi, Cascade, Amass and Avaline and had the opportunity to bid on a Moke vehicle that was auctioned off.

Camp counselors from Firework Foundation’s Camp Firework were on hand to distribute custom camper designed Katy Perry Collections shoes, and share information about the organization’s marquee initiative, a 3-day sleep-away experience in nature where up to 90 kids are provided a space to discover their spark through artistic programming and bring that sparkle home to their communities. The foundation has also partnered with organizations such as Boys and Girls Clubs of America, LAAMP (founded by Stargate, Katy’s collaborators on “Firework”), Young Producers Group and FIDM on music and mentorship programs and, for camp alumni, leaders-in-training programs. Katy and Angela were interviewed in this Firework Foundation segment from the Lifetime special about Variety’s 2022 “Power of Women: The Changemakers.”
