Hendrick’s Gin saves the Rarest Cucumbers

Hendrick’s, The Gin Famously Infused with Rose and Cucumber, has Scoured the Planet to Find and Cultivate Some of the World’s Most Unusual Cucumbers

Hendrick’s, the world’s most unusual gin, has brought some of the rarest and peculiar cucumbers from around the globe back from the brink of extinction and made them available for the masses. An unprecedented delight to the senses, this noble endeavor will invite lovers of food and drink to satisfy their curiosity and taste a bounty of otherworldly cucumbers via the exclusive Hendrick’s Curious Cucumber Collection from Farmer Jones Farm at The Chef’s Garden, available now for pre-order delivery nationwide at Farmerjonesfarm.com

Hendrick’s Gin and cucumbers have always been and will always be inextricably bound. Since its inception, Hendrick’s has championed all that is curious, unexpected and unique. In fact, the gin began as a rarity itself due to its unusual but delightful infusions of rose, and of course, cucumber. “You could say I have a healthy obsession with cucumbers, they truly are quite fascinating fruits,” said Hendrick’s Master Distiller Ms. Lesley Gracie. “When we were first developing Hendrick’s, experimenting with cucumbers and figuring out how to get that curious cooling sensation into a gin was a big moment in
my career. Over the years, I’ve had the pleasure of seeing so many diverse and wonderful varieties of cucumber in different parts of the world. The chance to cultivate some of the more peculiar styles on the brink of extinction has been an extremely fun and welcomed challenge.”

Ms. Lesley Gracie worked with Professor Lenore Newman, one of North America’s foremost experts in agriculture, to identify multiple varieties of rare cucumber species scattered across the globe, from the vast African plains to the mist-shrouded foothills of Asia. Through no small effort on the part of Hendrick’s Gin and renowned farm partners, The Chefs Garden (Huron, OH) and MX Morningstar Farm (Hudson, NY), these glorious fruits have been saved from extinction and are ready to share with the world in their freshest, most imbebible forms. “As someone who has devoted my career to the discovery and preservation of rare fruits and vegetables, I can say with conviction that what Hendrick’s has done for these cucumbers is a tremendous scientific accomplishment,” said Newman, PhD & Director of the Food and Agriculture Institute at the University of the Fraser Valley. The author of three books on food, Lenore advises the British Columbia government on
agricultural policy and the impact of climate change on food security. “These seeds represent a microscopic amount of the global cucumber population and without this project, they remained in danger. It’s remarkable to see them restored to such great scale, and it’s such a joy for people to now be able to taste these marvelous fruits.”

The various seeds were sourced from across the globe after months of academic research and meticulously
cultivated in greenhouses across North America and Europe.

The Six Rare Cucumbers

  • The highly curious Cucamelon (Melothria scabra) is cultivated as a minor crop in Mexico and
    Central America, and very rarely experienced elsewhere. Flavors are similar to a cucumber, yet
    sweeter and citrus-like, with an uncanny exterior resemblance to a mini-watermelon.
  • Particularly unusual in appearance donning a peculiar mix of bright orange & green with
    horn-like spikes, the African Horned (Cucumis metuliferus) is a close relative of our beloved
    cucumber that primarily grows wild and in local gardens across southern Africa, carrying
    delightful notes of melon, kiwi, banana and citrus.
  • The Hmong Red (Cucumis sativus) is grown by the Hmong people in intimate gardens
    adorning the mountains of Northern Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, and Myanmar, where upon
    maturation, this miraculous fruit transitions in color from a pale green to a golden orange, and
    offers a tart flavor.
  • The Aonaga Jibai (Cucumis sativus), a treasured family gem from the island of Kyushu, Japan,
    can only be found in the quaint town of Beppu, where it’s known for its unusually long and
    narrow shape and splendidly sweet taste.
  • Only found tucked away in the country of Bhutan, the Gagon Cucumber (Cucumis sativus) is
    quite distinct – as it matures, it shifts from containing the characteristics of a common cucumber
    to marvelous honeydew.
  • Generally unknown outside of Eastern Europe, the ancient Muromsky Cucumber (Cucumis
    sativus) is oddly covered in black spikes and prized for its pleasant scent, crunchy texture, and
    punchy flavor.

Thousands of these peculiar cucumbers have been cultivated globally and are available in the United States via an exclusive Curious Cucumber Collection from Farmer Jones Farm at The Chef’s Garden. With a plethora of culinary and cocktail uses, these atypical yet delicious cucumbers come in a farm-fresh variety pack for $48, with no one box the same based on harvest at the time of order.

Among the first to experiment with these extraordinary fruits, Hendrick’s National Ambassador, Vance Henderson, tasted and tested to his delight in order to create a cocktail experience unlike any on earth. “Experimenting with these rare cucumbers was not only a pleasure, but an exploration in itself and a welcomed creative challenge,” says Henderson. “One of our favorite creations, The Cutecumber Lemonade, is an ode to our popular Hendrick’s Cucumber Lemonade with one-of-a-kind notes of citrus from the Cucamelon that beautifully compliment our delicious and refreshing gin and mixes well with the unusual.”

The Cutecumber Lemonade – Ingredients

  • 1.5 parts Hendrick’s Gin
  • .75 part Fresh Cucamelon Juice, Strained
  • .75 part Fresh Lemon Juice
  • .75 part Simple Syrup
  • Top with Premium Soda Water
  • 1 Cucamelon and 1 Lemon Wheel to Garnish

Method: Combine all ingredients in a highball glass filled with cubed ice and lightly stir. Garnish with 1 whole Cucamelon speared between 1 lemon wheel and serve.

She visualizes flavors as shapes and strikes to create a round, balanced flavor in all of her elixirs. In 1999, Ms. Gracie was approached by the great grandson of William Grant, Charles Gordon, to create an ‘ultra-premium’ gin which was to become Hendrick’s. She was appointed as the Master Distiller and went on to spearhead the development of this most unusual gin and is responsible for the creation of all of
Hendrick’s liquid innovations.

SOMMERRO IN OSLO

Nordic Hotels & Resorts has announced today the grand opening of its newest luxury hotel, Sommerro, located in the heart of Frogner in Oslo’s West End. One of Europe’s most anticipated launches of 2022, the urban retreat is set within the former headquarters of Oslo Lysverker, the city’s original electrical company, and is energizing the neighborhood and its surroundings with a new sense of creative spirit that pays tribute to Norway’s cultural heritage. Providing a home away from home for both travelers and locals, the iconic 231-room Art Deco hotel is complete with 56 branded residences, seven restaurants and bars, meeting and event spaces with capacity for up to 150 people, a 100-seat gilded theater, a landmark wellness space with a fully-equipped gym, and the city’s first year-round rooftop pool, sauna, and terrace.

“Sommerro is more than a hotel. It is an iconic building housing years of history, located in one of Oslo’s most vibrant and exciting areas. We want everyone to feel at home at Sommerro, whether you are a guest or a local seeking a place to hang out with friends, work, or simply relax in beautiful surroundings,” said Petter A. Stordalen, Founder of Nordic Choice Hotels, now known as Strawberry. “We believe that Sommerro will take Oslo to the next level of hospitality, and I am really looking forward to opening the doors to this fantastic project, bringing the building back to life for more generations to come.”

Bespoke Architecture, Design, and Artwork

Sommerro pays homage to a fusion of neoclassical contemporary aesthetics with original historic elements that have been meticulously restored and developed by local firm LPO Architects in collaboration with New York- and London-based studio GrecoDeco. Sommerro was designed as a community in its own right which extends into all aspects of its design, with diverse areas that feel approachable and welcoming to all. The hotel’s thoughtfully designed social spaces and six varied guest room categories, from snug Loft rooms to lavish Junior and Heritage Suites, are embellished with opulent Art Deco details and lush textiles, including oak parquet flooring, custom-designed furnishings upholstered with 1930s Norwegian motifs, hand-knotted rugs, beds from innovative Swedish sleep brand Hilding Anders, and slick bathrooms with custom tiles.

Curated by internationally acclaimed museum director and art critic, Sune Nordgren, the hotel is adorned with an extensive art collection by emerging local artists. The contemporary collection is complimented with a host of original artworks from the 1930s iconic Norwegian artist Per Krohg, including a giant wall fresco in the main hall, a ceiling mural that nods to the building’s heritage highlighting life after the wonders of electricity, and a mosaic feature wall in the basement of the former public baths. Art enthusiasts can enjoy hosted show-rounds of Per Krohg’s collection by local museum curators and the hotel can also arrange private guided tours of Art Deco artwork in the nearby newly opened National Museum.

Curated Cultural Program

With respect to Frogner’s classic and creative neighborhood spirit, a vibrant community brimming with chic boutiques, antique stores, museums, and art galleries, Sommerro will be an open and inspiring house designed to revolutionize the city’s hospitality landscape where visitors and locals alike can gather together to experience a range of immersive programming and activities across its buzzing social spaces. Curated by resident jazz musician and composer, Maren Selvaag, the hotel’s dynamic pop-up music and cultural events inspired by the flourishing music scene of the 1930s will kick off in September with performances by British magician Jon Ensor appearing as The Stranger at Lysverker Scene, the hotel’s own 100-seat gilded theatre that takes its cues from the decadent glamour of old Hollywood and Europe’s grand opera houses. Other regular highlights will include performances from the Sommerro Soul Band and a series of Brunch & Film Classics, with iconic movies screened in Kinoen, a cinema inspired by Tancred Ibsen, the filmmaker who introduced Norway to its first feature film with sound in 1931.

Nordic Cuisine with a Twist

Set to become one of Oslo’s most coveted culinary destinations, Sommerro features seven restaurants and bars, including the city’s only rooftop restaurant, and outposts from local favorites Barramon, a Spanish tapas and wine bar, and Plah, one of the city’s most popular restaurants showcasing elevated cuisine by Norway’s “Best Thai Chef” Terje Ommundsen, which will also offer an exclusive chef’s table experience. Ekspedisjonshallen, an all-day dining spot located in the former hall where the public once paid their electricity bills, comes to life with regular musical performances and a lively cocktail bar on an original sunken floor that serves drinks inspired by the Roaring Twenties. Alongside this decadence, Sommerro will also lead the way with an alcohol-free mixology program, this wellness trend has been spearheaded by bar manager Louika Blouti who has created an innovative menu, named The Prohibitionists. Adjacent to Ekspedisjonshallen is To Søstre – an elegant home for afternoon teas served on decadent cake trolleys, and accompanied by regular classical concerts with a self-playing Steinway Grand Piano, one of the few in Norway. The tea has been designed by British executive head chef, Jonathan Howell and implemented by an award-winning pastry team, it will change according to the season with traditional savory and sweet treats that have a unique Sommerro twist. Further boosting Oslo’s world-class culinary scene, Tak Oslo is a Nordic-Japanese restaurant by award-winning Swedish chef Frida Ronge featuring hyper-local, seasonal dishes using sustainable Norwegian produce and seafood. As the only rooftop restaurant in the city, TAK Oslo will be the place to be seen.

Commitment to Sustainability

As Norway’s largest-ever preservation project, Sommerro upholds and enhances Nordic Hotels & Resorts’ commitment to eco-sustainability, focusing on traditional sustainable elements that prioritize the environment while also emphasizing mental health and career advancement internally along with support of locally owned businesses and community initiatives. This humanistic interest takes a holistic shape through the hotel’s ‘Sommerro Standards’, nine benchmarks that guide all day-to-day operations, partnerships, and hotel philosophies. The hotel has made a commitment to using quality green materials for products and services; sourcing sustainable seafood and local produce; investing in long-lasting relationships with some of Norway’s greatest and greenest businesses and creators, such as social entrepreneurship Sisters in Business that employs female immigrants who create textiles and repair broken items;  sustainable footwear brand New Movements to provide shoes for all its staff as part of the uniform; and Røros Tweed who produce high-quality wool products based on a centuries-old local crafts tradition. Sommerro will be powered on 100 percent renewable energy; provide bikes for guests to rent; offer EV parking with free charging, encourage suppliers to use zero emission transport; and ban all plastic water bottles within the hotel.

 

Sommerro has also implemented an 8-hour rule for employees to ensure work-life balance is always considered – 8 hours of work, 8 hours of fun, and 8 hours of sleep. The hotel prides itself on fostering a truly inclusive, collaborative, and enjoyable home for both employees and visitors alike.

Urban Wellness Retreat

Opening in November, Vestkantbadet, one of Norway’s last remaining public baths from 1932, has been restored to its former glory and reimagined as an 15,000-square-foot subterranean urban wellness retreat, the largest of any city hotel across the Nordic countries. Designed as a haven for health and mindfulness, Vestkantbadet, adorned with a glorious Per Krohg mosaic wall, will feature a series of treatment rooms, original restored Roman baths, infrared sauna, gym, and cold plunge pool offering a traditional Nordic thermotherapy experience. Going beyond the conventional, Sommerro is the first hotel in the Nordics to offer specialist medical aesthetic treatments, along with a range of additional innovative therapies including laser therapy, Wim Hof-style cold water breathing technique sessions, nutritionist workshops, two-day electric sauna boat retreats on the fjord in partnership with KOK, masterclasses with a sleep expert, and complimentary Why We Sleep books in the guestrooms.

Introducing Villa Inkognito

As the second stage in this exciting launch, Sommerro will open Villa Inkognito in March 2023. Housed in a former private residence that dates back to 1870, this 11-suite retreat is adjacent to the hotel with a private entrance and will offer the option to be rented in its entirety. The villa will boast several opulent living rooms, an open kitchen, an intimate bar, a fitness room in the basement and a lovely outdoor area. Its interior design will feature a mix of magnificent antiques, original artwork, decorative details and classic Scandinavian furnishings. Guests can enjoy the privacy of their own villa with full access to all of the amenities and services offered at Sommerro. Villa Inkognito bookings are now open.

Six Great Beach Clubs in Koh Phangan To Check Out in 2022

Thailand is well-known for its stunning beaches, and Koh Phangan is no exception. This small island in the Gulf of Thailand is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the country and is one of the most popular island-hopping destinations. There are a few different ways to get to Koh Phangan, including a ferry from Koh Samui, an island nearby. With a wide range of beach clubs, Koh Phangan is the perfect place to spend a day or two in the sun. 

Bars are formed on beaches and stocked with beer, but not everyone is a classic. Koh Phangan has many beach bars filled with good music, where you can watch the hissing waves while the water rinses your feet, watch the sunset, or even have a beach party under the moon. It becomes the final destination for travelers, especially those that love exploring the waters. People repeatedly visit the island because of the disco nightlife and amazing beach clubs that function 24/7 a week and 365 days a year. These places are a must-visit if you intend to enjoy your stay on the island.

However, not every bar can make it to the six must-visit beach clubs in Koh Phangan. We have gathered the chic and the elite, serving thirst-quenching beer, bamboo night parties, and sitting spots made of straw. These places have a way of calling you back if you’ve previously visited there.

1. Merkaba Beach Club

Merkaba Beach Club is an old but renowned club on the island. It is a sunset beach located and designed with palm trees in an isolated private place below the Haad Rin hills. The name has three sections, each with a meaning related to sacred geometry meaningful in ancient Egypt–Mer is for rotating light, Ka for spirit, and Ba for the body. The bar is known for its music, cheap drinks, cool décor, good sound system, and magical vibe. The club has a standard DJ with the desire to play trending songs.

2. Infinity Beach Club

Infinity Beach Club is at the forefront of many clubs in the area. You can easily see the club along the beachfront, where most vacationers hang out at night. The club has two restaurants, a large outdoor swimming pool, a functioning bar with continental drinks, and a rooftop terrace for dancers and chillers. People that get bored in their rooms take their activities to the poolside to relax and socialize with other vacationers. The place gets crowded between 5 pm and 6 pm, so it is better to be there before this time to get a convenient spot to watch the whole night’s activities. The club does not close until dawn, with a local DJ ready to blow your mind from sunset to 1 am.

3. By The Sea & Bar

As the name implies, the Sea and Bar have high tides close to the sea. You can hear the sound of crashing waves and open air down. The bar serves world-class cocktails, delicious coconut smoothies, and other locally made drinks. You can get lunch and dinner at the beachfront dining area. They do the best Thai-style food with flavors and spices, surrounded by incredible views. Seafood like lobsters is prepared phenomenally and highly recommended for evening relaxation. The dinner serves Thai and Italian dishes, drinks, and music all night. The bar is ready to party till daybreak.

4. Coco Locco Beach Bar

The Coco Loco Beach bar is on the island’s sand beach of Haad Yao. There are swimming pools, cheap lounges, beachfront dining places, and open-air lounges. Dance to the good high-quality music with restaurants serving Tapas, western and Thai food. Enjoy chilled grade drinks, beer, bottle drinks, cocktails, wine, and tropical fruits by the bar. You can’t visit Koh Phangan without seeing the Coco Locco beach bar. The bar is for family gatherings, birthday celebrations, welcome parties, and sometimes beach weddings.

5. Sunset Beach Bar

The location is at the city’s center, walkable to many neighborhoods like Thong Sala pier, Wat Plai Laem, and Bangrak beach. The evening atmosphere is warm, and the restaurant serves delicious hot meals. In addition, the resort has sports and outdoor poolside activities. Enjoy the nightlife with fantastic music, free drinks, and dancing spots. The restaurant and nightclub are connected, making the venue feel more spacious.

6. Ku Club

The Ku Club is a trendy, fun place in Koh Phangan. The bar has an open dance floor with a local DJ that plays international trending tracks from an echoing sound system. The club may be small but has an exceptional vibe, food, ping-pong tables, and drinks. In addition, the activities are affordable, making it a favorite spot for many vacationers in Koh Phangan.

AMERICAN TOURISM TO TÜRKIYE

Americans are streaming to Türkiye in unprecedented numbers according to figures released today by the Turkish Ministry of Culture and Tourism.

“This is an extraordinary and exciting result,” says Yalçın Lokmanhekim, the General Manager of TGA, Türkiye Tourism Promotion and Development Agency, underscoring not only Turkish tourism’s recovery from the pandemic, but also highlighting how Americans are vacationing in Türkiye in record-breaking numbers. 

Number one destination in Türkiye for Americans is the city of Istanbul, with phenomenal interest in discovering other parts of this country that spans both Europe and Asia. After Istanbul, Americans’ favorite destinations currently include the Turkish Aegean coast, the city of Izmir, and the unique landscapes of Cappadocia in the east of the country.

213,000 Americans visited Türkiye in January through June 2019, with 377,000 in the same period of 2022.

FLY TAILWIND TO DC

Fly the Fast Lane with Tailwind Air. 

Experienced seaplane operator Tailwind Air announces an exciting new destination, creating the fastest way to Washington, D.C. Travelers may now enjoy a nonstop seaplane flight directly from Manhattan’s Skyport Marina at East 23rd Street (IATA code: NYS) to Washington, D.C.’s College Park Airport (IATA code: CGS). Flights to/from Manhattan are approximately 80-90 minutes. Tailwind will be the only scheduled air service inside the Beltway outside of DCA. Scheduled service begins September 13, 2022, and will be operated by our fleet of Cessna Grand Caravans featuring two experienced pilots, eight Economy Plus leather seats, aisle and window access, crisp air-conditioning, and an ability to land on water or at an airport.

To celebrate the launch of this milestone route, Tailwind is offering a “buy one seat, and a companion flies with you free” launch promotion. Available only at flytailwind.com until September 10 for all flights on the new route from September 13 through December 21, 2022. To take advantage of this unique offer, enter promo code “TWDCBOGO” when booking. Some restrictions apply—see website for details.

“We’re very excited to be adding Washington, D.C., to our scheduled service,” explained Peter Manice, Tailwind Air cofounder and director of scheduled services. “When factoring in the full journey—one hour and twenty minutes in the air (comparable to DCA-LGA service except with no need to access crowded and congested airports on both ends) or the three hours fifty minutes for the Acela—Tailwind Air will offer the fastest, least stressful,  premium way to travel between DC and Manhattan. That, paired with the unforgettable views, makes this a compelling experience.” 

College Park is a historic, uncongested airport 25 minutes from the Capitol, 18 minutes from Chevy Chase, 25 minutes from Georgetown, and 5 minutes from the University of Maryland. With ample free parking adjacent to the modern terminal building, Uber, Lyft, and taxi availability, and just a short walk to the frequent subway service from College Park Metro station (Green Line) and MARC train station, accessing the airport is a breeze.

New York Skyport (NYS) is Manhattan’s dedicated seaplane base. Located at the eastern end of 23rd Street along the East River, Tailwind Air operates all Manhattan departures from there and has a dedicated climate-controlled lounge for all passengers.

“Bypassing the congestion of the northeast corridor between New York and Washington, DC remains the core mission of Tailwind Air.

The Clement Palo Alto all-inclusive hotel review by Vaughn Lowery for 360 MAGAZINE

Clement Hotel Palo Alto

A Personalized Luxury Accommodation in a Contemporary Atmosphere.

Choosing the right hotel may be a daunting undertaking, but once you’ve selected the right one, it’s usually a repeat. Clement Hotel is a repeat; we learned that one overseas family has been occupying two rooms for nearly 3 months. Opened since March 2016, Palo Alto hosts a six-star hospitality experience with one of the most advanced, and unique luxury all-inclusive establishments in Northern America. This pristine property is situated in Silicon Valley, just 30 minutes south of San Francisco and 20 minutes north of San Jose; the perfect location to avoid the hectic city life and dull suburbia.

The Clement Hotel follows a concept that is unprecedented, truly a one-of-a-kind. It’s secret? They just pay really close attention to each of their clients. Upon check-in, every client receives a personal concierge. Your concierge functions as an assistant, who facilitates your stay by supplying every need. Ours even assisted with providing a very specific, yet, makeshift listing of events, bars and restaurants within the San Francisco area, that played top 40 hip-hop. Prior to arrival, patrons complete an email survey with dietary restrictions, special needs, requests and preferred cuisines. The client relations representative is a “genie in a bottle,” that makes its customer’s wishes come true.

Always armed with a WiFi connected tablet, they can answer any queries or concerns about virtually any pressing issue that surfaces in any area of the property. And, if you’ve seemingly lost them, don’t fret because they’re strapped with an in-house networked iPhone with an extension so they’re reachable via text or call throughout the campus.

Once inside the rooms, the Clement Hotel showcases exquisite quality and embellishments. There are 23 stylish king suites available throughout 4 floors and all of which are well-equipped with cell phone chargers, international electricity outlets and floor to ceiling windows. The 650 sq. ft., single-bedroom offers modern and sophisticated comfort, providing an intuitive layout with an array of carefully curated amenities to enhance the guest’s stay. State-of-the-art technology is combined with comfort of the highest standard, such as luxurious Frette linens, 65-inch Samsung Smart TVs, Nespresso Vertuoline coffee machines, powered blinds and fully stocked in-room refrigerators. The bathrooms are lavish, containing a small screen TV concealed inside the mirror and a heated seat Toto toilet/bidet equipped with an infrared remote control. The glass stall showers are tourist, celebrity and business traveler ready, installed with rain head or massage handles. Or, enjoy a relaxing bath in its deep-soak tub with salts provided. Another meticulous detail that adds flair to this space, are the heated floors with wall thermostat control.

After a night on the town at San Francisco’s “Love + Propaganda” 360 Magazine enjoyed a toasted sesame bagel with salami, pepperoni and thinly sliced meat alongside of microwaved Brie cheese at 3AM in the 24-hour kitchen pantry. A fully stocked 6-foot display case refrigerates bottled refreshments alongside of an extensive variety of yogurts and Tin Pot, a local handcrafted ice cream prepared with organic ingredients. Not to mention, various granola bars, fruit and pre-wrapped goodies were sprinkled throughout. Other all-inclusive service and amenities include: breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks; all non/alcoholic drinks, inroom banqueting, minibar, business center, valet parking, twice-daily housekeeping services, overnight shoe shine services, high-speed internet, personal experience specialist and gratuities. Not to mention, an open bar service available anywhere in the hotel. This convenience-styled hotel is hosted by a very attentive and sympathetic staff that makes sure visitors feel at home at every moment. After all, business is all about relationships, and traveling alone after-awhile can be lonely. But, Clement actually makes lonely travels preferable, the entire staff is accessible, extremely professional and charismatic – our newest friends!

Guest’s visitors are also permitted to luxuriate in all that The Clement Hotel has to offer. An exclusive chef presides over “The Kitchen” area, which holds many of your tasteful dishes. In fact, one afternoon, former resident chef, Phillip Pagan, prepared appetizers (homemade potato chips) with built-in deep fryer at the island (adjacent to dining/living area), where the team freely reminisced about our recent travels and the gorgeous Jaguar F-Pace First Edition, which was our means of transportation.

Business drop-ins have access to secure private rooms that are well equipped for teleconferencing. They are ideal for receptions, private meals and activities. All attendees have complete access to all the above mentioned amenities and valet parking. In fact, most vehicles are kept underneath the property in a lower level garage, which is only accessible to staff.

CHEF SHIN THOMPSON

Listen to 360 MAG Vaughn Lowery and Chef Shin Podcast: HERE

Chef Shin Thompson was an underground Cookman turned Michelin star chef in Chicago for his Chicago Restaurant. Although he spends most of his career in Chicago. He now recently moved to LA to start a new Japanese BBQ restaurant.

The challenge he had to have to earn the star for the restaurant in Chicago is that you must be able to cook well for 365 days. Chef Shin Thompson felt accomplished that the people were able to realize the passion that he has for the food. He said, “It was a great feeling to be recognized for all the hard work that went over the years.”

At first, he got interested in being a chef because of his parents. He said, “My dad was really big into cooking at home and replicating recipes from his travels and so really where I got interested in it.”

As a child, he would spend most of his time traveling with his dad. He said, “I first got exposed to food from all the different travels, my dad used to take me out of school for weeks at a time…so take me out of school and we just learn about different cultures, and we traveled all over Europe and all over Asia.”

His family comes from a Japanese household; therefore, it played a huge role in introducing him to the food. “My mother is Japanese, so anybody who’s in a Japanese family will tell you that food is a big part of the culture in Japan and is a heritage to be a big cook if you’re Japanese. So, my mom was always cooking Japanese food and my dad was always cooking food from all of these different cultures, so I got exposed to a lot of different things at a young age.” He spoke.

While he works on a restaurant tour, he introduces us to his challenges and thoughts on what means to succeed in the restaurant business. He said, “The interesting part about the restaurant business that I find fascinating is it takes different skills sets, so you need to be an artist from the chef perspective you need a business person that can really understand the numbers and the food costs, labor costs, you need marketing and being able to or more like psychology getting into the mind of the people who coming into the restaurant.”

According to Chef Shin Thompson, the restaurant will have private rooms with “Asian-looking screens.” Along with the modern look and Japanese style. It will have the décor of “Japanese charred wood, which is called Shou Sugi Ban, which is a Japanese technique that is used in ancient times, where they actually charred the wood and they would use it for the siding in their homes” he said. It’s good for resisting fire. The reason is that there is nothing to burn since the wood is already charred.

For the menu, “The BBQ grill menu is about $148 dollars for domestic tasting, which includes full meal” he said. There will be an A5 version that is not domestic, however, it will more expensive. In Japan, having a restaurant being A5 means the best.

Some of the upgrades that are still in progress are the “wine cellar that we will have in the middle of the dining room, as well as several dry agers that will be built in the wall as a display.” Therefore, when a guest walks in, they will see the dry agers that will have meat.

One piece of advice that Chef Shin Thompson gives to young chefs is “there are a lot of sacrifices that you need to put in as a young chef and in order to make sure it is worthwhile, you need to be 100% passionate about what you do.”

How Extreme Heat Affects Pain

The Heat Is (Still) On For People In Pain

By: Joseph Pergolizzi, MD, Healthy Directions

The dog days of summer may have come to an end, but the heat of summer may still be taking a toll on many people dealing with arthritis and other conditions. Pain and heat don’t mix well and can make pain issues worse. 

How Heat Affects Pain

The science behind how extreme weather changes can affect a person’s pain levels is not completely clear. However, we know from the medical literature that heat can trigger intense pain based on many documents by physicians who have treated patients who suffer more painful symptoms in hot weather. 

One theory is that the increased humidity in the air can cause swelling and inflammation in the joints. Temperature sensitivity is common for people with chronic conditions such as fibromyalgia — some being sensitive to hot weather, while others are more sensitive to cooler weather.

Some patients with arthritis report that they can predict the weather based on how their joints feel. Some people notice their pain and stiffness flares up in the cold and wet winter months, while others find hot and humid summer weather can intensify their symptoms.

Scientists have identified that muscles, bones and tendons become larger and smaller in response to atmospheric changes, but exactly how and why barometric pressure changes affect the joints is still unclear. It could be related to the pressure of the fluid oiling the joints or increased nerve sensitivity. Each person’s response to heat may also depend on the type of arthritis they have.

While further study is needed to provide insight into how extreme heat affects pain, there are several strategies that we can access now to minimize heat induced pain.

Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate

We’ve all heard this advice before: you don’t want to wait until you are parched to start drinking water — continue to hydrate all day long even if you don’t feel thirsty.

The obvious advice is to drink water. The not-so-obvious advice is to drink food. Yes, the good news is that hydration can also come in the form of food since certain foods are high in water content. According to the Mayo Clinic, about 20% of our water consumption comes from foods – primarily fruits and veggies. So indulge in hydrating foods like: watermelon, cucumbers, zucchini, celery, carrots, radishes, kiwi, peaches, cantaloupe, eggplant, tomatoes, strawberries, iceberg lettuce, pineapple, grapefruit, apples and even potatoes, which contain about 80% water and are a good source of potassium, a key mineral in maintaining healthy blood pressure.

You may not want to hear this advice, but limiting alcohol and caffeine is key to staying hydrated. It’s not that you have to eliminate caffeine and alcoholic beverages, but try to alternate them between a large glass of water to keep your hydration in check.

Avoid Direct Sun

The sun may feel fantastic on your skin at first, but the heat is secretly doing it damage. Even staying hydrated and slathering on lotion and creams will not put back all the moisture that the sun drains away from it so quickly. Every moment spent in the shade allows your skin to repair itself and reduce the chances of sunburn, which can cause skin damage and intensify any existing aches and pains.

During the summer months, never leave home without a wide-brim hat and sunglasses. Some people even find an umbrella helpful so you are producing your own shade wherever you go. Whenever possible, move towards the shade and avoid walking or sitting in the direct sunlight. 

Those who suffer from headaches should avoid bright sunlight as much as possible. While just being out in the heat stresses your body, direct sunlight can cause sunburn and intensify pain. 

Mix Sunscreen With Pain Cream 

We know the benefits of protecting the skin from being burnt by the sun by using sunscreen, but adding some pain cream to that sunscreen will also help mitigate painful muscle spasms, which can occur even if you have never had them before, and especially if the body gets too warm and can’t cool itself down fast enough. An effective pain relief cream can work much faster than oral pain medications, usually within a few minutes, and you are able to target the pain relief more precisely by putting the cream exactly where you are feeling the pain. Topical pain relief creams have been so effective for my patients, that I developed a formula called Instaflex Pain Relief Cream that can be applied directly on the affected joints or muscles, providing a first-line, instant pain defense for the body. This specific formula combines essential oxygenated oil with menthol to provide fast, targeted relief. Because it uses specially designed oils, less menthol is used, making it less harsh, but just as effective for pain. 

Unlike pain pills, topical pain relief formulas do not adversely affect the gastrointestinal system or the heart or the brain. If you apply a pain relief cream to the shoulder, for example, it positively affects the joint and tendons and muscles around the shoulder to provide pain relief. You can also apply the pain relief cream more frequently than you can take an oral pain relief medication, where you would have to wait 6 to 8 hours between doses. Pills also take much longer to absorb in the body versus putting the pain relief cream directly on the affected joints or muscles, providing instant pain relief. 

Dress To Protect

If you know you will be outside and exposed to heat for more than an hour, plan a wardrobe to protect accordingly. Choose to wear loose, breathable clothing. Avoid dark colored clothing and instead wear white or light-colored clothing to keep you cooler. Be mindful that UV light can still penetrate through the micro holes in the weaves of regular clothes or can even travel directly through a light-colored shirt. So add UPF (ultraviolet protection factor) clothing options to your summer wardrobe that will provide a more protective block from the sun.

While loose fitting clothing allows for airflow, choosing fabrics that allow sweat to evaporate more easily will feel even cooler. These fabrics include: cotton, linen, rayon, chambray, and bamboo, along with those that have been designed with moisture-wicking technology.

If you want to be fashionable and sun safe, don that hat. Luckily, many fashion hats are now embracing the fact that SPF is a key factor to design. The brim of your hat also matters so embrace your inner Audrey Hepburn and go for the wide brim look. The wider the brim, the more skin protection. The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends a three-inch brim circumference or at least a three-inch bill with a permanently attached drape covering the ears and neck. The key is to cover as much skin as possible. Be mindful that front-brimmed hats, like baseball caps and visors, only shade the eyes, not the skin.

Pain Or Not

Hot weather by itself can cause dizziness, lightheadedness, fatigue, and muscle cramps, even in people who do not normally have muscle pain so these heat reducing tips are good advice for everyone. Pain can easily sneak up on anyone so practicing these heat reducing techniques will create good habits that will protect your skin and minimize your pain in the long run. The key is to do your best to stay cool and pain-free while you enjoy one of the most pleasurable times of the year.
