NYC legendary promoter Frank Watson, William Allen, B-Hen via 360 MAGAZINE.

RIP FRANK WATSON

Frank Watson, a popular NYC LGBTQIA+ party promoter and Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. member, will always be remembered.



“I first met Frank Watson in Harlem in the early days of the 2010s, I can’t recall exactly the year, but I do recall his and others like him, an ambition trending group that would change how thousands would see themselves and attempt to define a new world, even for me. It was the breaking days of the New Harlem — young energy and freedom rushed in like a tsunami.

Frank had ideas about parties and asked me a lot of questions on how to do it in Harlem and NYCwide. I had spent a few years serving as a development advisor to an emerging magazine that expressed fashion freedom and black gay pride as well as help to create the first major black comedy club in the 1990s, located in Harlem, that created substantial new opportunities that formerly was only open to a few blacks at a time. More of my story later in another article.

In the pic above, it was at one of a handful of people at Frank’s first party venture that happened to take place in Harlem, the DJ Brian Henry, on my right, a mentee who had invited me, was a recent college graduate working at Verizon and living in Harlem. Brian is now the famous B-Hen, hosting amazing block parties all across the nation and performing abroad. Back to Frank. I’ll never forget that conversation that night and the countless others, his humility, charm, and drive to make other people enjoy their lives was evident. He had a soul that couldn’t be broken and was a strong architect of much needed ventures and events that made pride beyond one day, month, or a season. He gave life to a new generation that chose to be dominant in popular culture and not in the shadows. May God grant him peace. He was a king.” — William Allen

The theme of dualism threads through two portraits by pop icon Andy Warhol, both commissioned decades ago by Craig Robin’s mother and Jackie Soffer’s mother separately, acting as a spectacular coincidence. The multifaceted Collection also features design pieces by the recently acquired Sasha Gordon and by established favorites such as Zaha Hadid, Jean Prouvé, Marc Newson and Maarten Baas. 

Dates: November 30 – onward

Hours: 10am – 12pm

The contributors to 100 Years, who include Refik Anadol, Theaster Gates, Douglas Gordon, Urs Fischer, Tom Friedman, Austin Lee, Jamian Juliano Villani, Rick Lowe, Keiichi Tanaami, and Taryn Simon, among others, recognize the critical nature of the titular period, sloughing off a sense of weariness with time itself to consider past and future with new optimism.

BECKY HILL × MCDONALD’S – “ONLY YOU”

BECKY HILL RELEASES “ONLY YOU” 

FROM THE MCDONALDS CHRISTMAS ADVERT 2022

Today, Brit Award winning, chart-topping singer songwriter Becky Hill releases “Only You” (From The McDonald’s Christmas Advert 2022).  

BECKY HILL’S “ONLY YOU” (FROM THE MCDONALD’S CHRISTMAS ADVERT) IS AVAILABLE TO STREAM/DOWNLOAD NOW

beckyhill.lnk.to/OnlyYou_

Originally released by Yazoo in 1982, Becky Hill has made the iconic track “Only You” her own with a stripped back acoustic version for The McDonald’s Christmas Advert 2022.

Created by Tom Hooper, the Oscar winning director of The Kings Speech , the 60 second advert serves as a stark reminder that Christmas isn’t for the big, expensive, or flashy – it’s the little moments of togetherness which really help you to get into the spirit of Christmas. 

Set to Becky Hill’s atmospheric rendition of “Only You”, the magical film follows the story of a young boy and his loving mum, who both get swept up in the anticipation of Christmas in different ways. He’s busy getting carried away with the innocent excitement of an ever-growing Christmas list, and she’s busy trying to make sure all the preparations are ticked off her mental list. This all culminates on Christmas Eve, when an unexpected visit to McDonald’s reminds them both that at Christmas – it’s the little things that mean the most. 

The McDonald’s Christmas Advert 2022 is set to premiere during ITV’s I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here on Sunday 13th November.

10 pence from every download of Becky Hill’s “Only You” (From The McDonald’s Christmas Advert 2022 in the UK from now until Spring 2023 will be donated to BBC Children in Need(registered charity 802052 in England and Wales and SC039557 in Scotland).

“I am so pleased to be working with McDonald’s once again for this year’s Christmas campaign. This year in particular so many families and young people are struggling with the cost of living and I’m so glad that 10p from every download is donated directly to BBC Children in Need – it’s humbling to see the work that this fantastic charity does and I’m proud to play my part in supporting the young people it helps.” – Becky Hill

This is the second time Becky Hill has partnered with McDonald’s for the Xmas season. She made Alphaville’s tear-jerking Forever Young her own with a stripped back version for The McDonald’s Christmas Advert 2020. The track went on to become Becky’s 10th Top 40 record and has accumulated over 9.9 million streams to date. 

With an irrefutable aptitude for writing chart smashing pop songs, Brit Award winning Becky Hill is one of Britain’s most in-demand musical exports of the moment. Described by David Guetta as “one of the very rare queens of dance of music ”, Becky has written and performed on 18x UK Top 40 singles, including six Top 10 singles and one UK #1, and amassed over 22.6 million followers and 4 billion streams on Spotify alone. Becky’s BPI certifications total 13x Platinum, 6x Gold and 4x Silver records, and she was the third most streamed British female solo artist on Spotify in 2021, behind only Dua Lipa and Adele. Her gold-selling debut studio album, Only Honest On The Weekend , released in August 2021 and peaked at #7 on the UK Albums Chart, spawning Platinum- selling UK #3 single “Remember”, which also ended the year as one of the most streamed and best-selling songs of 2021 with over 1 million UK sales.

WunderLocke Penthouse Suites

WunderLocke unveils design-led Rooftop and Penthouse Suites

Located in Sendling, Munich, newly opened aparthotel WunderLocke by pioneering lifestyle brand Locke, has unveiled its seventh floor rooftop suites and impressive Penthouse Suites. The 360-apartment destination is ideally located in the up-and-coming neighbourhood of Sendling and brings a hospitality concept like no other to the Bavarian capital. WunderLocke provides suites for leisure and business travellers alike, offering eleven one-bedroom open plan suites, three two-bedroom penthouse suites, and the WunderLocke Penthouse Suite.

The design of the seventh-floor suites was overseen by renowned interior architects Holloway Li who took advantage of the striking views of the alps. The impressive 126sqm WunderLocke Penthouse Suite boasts an expansive stand-alone bathtub, offering guests the ultimate relaxation. The colour scheme throughout is anchored by natural earth tones and rich botanical greens, with biophilic insertions and natural materials creating a feeling of serenity. Munich-based multidisciplinary artist Monika Morito was also commissioned to paint a small mural in sunset tones which features in the space. In addition, the WunderLocke Penthouse Suite features its own private terrace complete with a jacuzzi configured to maximise and amplify its unique setting, while the 100sqm Two Bedroom Penthouse Suite features spectacular city views. Both penthouse suites also feature separate living quarters, an eight-person dining table, and two king-size beds in two separate bedrooms. In signature Locke style, both penthouse suites include a fully-equipped kitchen complete with a microwave oven, dishwasher, washer/dryer and cooking gear.

This was our first opportunity to design Penthouse suites for Locke and we were spoiled by the panoramic views the building afforded. Our design scheme for the penthouses chimed with the overall concept for WunderLocke, both paying homage to the heritage of the host building by retaining the exposed concrete shell and using natural materials as well as a thoughtful colour palette and greenery to provide a fitting counterpoint to the machine-age setting of the space. We hope the spaces provide both a sense of renewal as well as a connection to the wonderful surrounding city.”- Alex Holloway, Creative Director and Co-Founder of Holloway Li.

For the seventh-floor suites, Holloway Li mirrored the landscape of the alps in the distance to the lateral flow of the apartments. The 31m² Rooftop One Bedroom Open Plan Suites are complete with rooftop terraces, living spaces and fully equipped kitchens complete with dining tables and more.

For The WunderLocke Penthouse Suite and the Rooftop One Bedroom Open Plan Suites  featuring splendid terraces, Holloway Li worked with artist Claire de Quénetain to create bespoke fabrics for each of the external terrace loungers; her painterly illustrations take inspiration from natural settings and provide the perfect counterpoint to the building’s industrial past.

All seventh floor suites along with the WunderLocke Penthouse Suite feature Locke’s signature perks, including air conditioning, a power shower with Kinsey Apothecary toiletries, blackout curtains, private, superfast Wi-Fi, a Smart HDTV with Chromecast, a separate living area and a fully-equipped kitchen, microwave oven, dishwasher, washer/dryer. The urban roof garden, opening in Spring 2023, will also be accessible from the seventh floor.

WunderLocke’s size and location allowed us to really expand on our suite offerings, providing a private sanctuary for our guests where they can enjoy an elevated experience in our spectacular suites with unrivalled views of the alps and city.” Eric Jafari, Chief Development Officer & Creative Director, edyn.

Lifestyle aparthotel brand Locke opened WunderLocke in July 2022, continuing its European expansion. The property includes 360 spacious design-led apartments, a large co-working area, meeting and event spaces as well as an outdoor heated swimming pool, sauna and workout studio and a food and drink concept unparalleled in Germany in the form of ‘Mural Farmhouse’: five food and drink destinations spread across seven floors conceived by the founders of revered local Michelin-starred restaurant, Mural.

The Two Bedroom Penthouse Suite starts from €450, the WunderLocke Penthouse Suite starts from €520, the Two Bedroom Suites starts from €275 and the Rooftop One Bedroom Open Plan Suites starts from €150.

Las Catalinas Announces Opening of Papagayo Taphouse

Costa Rica’s car-free town adds to growing restaurant and retail offerings

Inspired by New Urbanism and the seaside hill towns of the Mediterranean, the car-free town of Las Catalinas continues to take shape and evolve since it began construction in 2009. The first neighborhood to be built in Las CatalinasBeach Town, is now nearing its completion and is a model for car-free living and intricate design. The low-rise Beach Town is extremely permeable for people on foot, and its textured hardscapes encourage maximum human-to-human interaction. As this scenic coastal town continues to grow, Las Catalinas adds to its eclectic list of food and beverage and retail offerings with the opening of its newest restaurant in Beach Town.

Recently opened in early November 2022, Beach Town in Las Catalinas welcomes Papagayo Taphouse by Papagayo Brewing Co. Leading the way with sustainability and sustainable brew practices throughout Costa Rica, Papagayo Brewing Co. is a Liberia-based brewery and tasting room producing quality craft beers accentuating the Guanacaste climate and culture. Just a stone’s throw from the Liberia airport, its flagship location produces craft beers proudly “hechas en Guanacaste” (made in Guanacaste) and inspired by the local culture and climate. With the strong belief that quality craft beer should be as refreshing as it is flavorful, Papagayo Brewing Co. is the beer to take from the brewery to the beach. Their taproom offers private group tours which is something not all craft breweries in Costa Rica offer.

Some of Papagayo Brewing Co.’s highlights include the Beach Lager (5%), an easy-drinking traditional lager; Tropical IPA (6.2%), known for its intense flavor of tropical fruits and juicy hops; Sour Gose (4.5%), a German-style sour beer with pink Himalayan salt and hibiscus; and the Passion Fruit Ale (5.5%), a light, golden pale ale with local passion fruit. The brewery just released its newest beer, the Offshore Ale, an American wheat ale with floral and citrusy notes. The IPA Series is a limited batch series with the first release date in May and the second release in August of this year.

For many years, the craft beer boom has steadily grown in North America,  but the last five or so years has seen significant growth in the craft beer market in Costa Rica. Although the capital city of San Jose continues to be the leader in the craft beer scene in the country, Guanacaste is starting to see an influx of small micro-breweries to craft breweries with innovative and robust menus. Throughout Guanacaste, brew pubs, taprooms, and distributor breweries are pulling from local traditions, fresh ingredients, and even the Blue Zone water to brew beer that reflects the Guanacaste region of Costa Rica. 

Papagayo Taphouse adds to the growing list of food and beverage offerings in Beach Town. Situated in the lively gathering place of Plaza Mercado, other openings this year included: Pots & Bowlsthe popular restaurant that first opened as a food truck in the height of the pandemic now operating as a stand-alone restaurant and its new sister restaurant next door called Pascual offering farm-to-table tapas and a wide selection of wines. This summer also saw the opening of Coquelicot, a charming European style food cart specializing in ice cream and waffles.

Focusing on creating a better way of life, the New Urbanist philosophy centers on building walkable blocks and streets, housing and shopping in close proximity, and accessible public spaces and parks to encourage livability, environmental sustainability, and innovation. The 21-acre Beach Town is a vibrant network of narrow passages, stair streets, and intimate public spaces. With nearly all of the buildings located on a small plaza or park, Beach Town embraces the core values of Las Catalinas by linking people, places, and conversations together in an authentic way.

About Las Catalinas, www.lascatalinascr.com

The conscious town of Las Catalinas is Costa Rica’s newest desirable beach town, currently with 142 homes complete and 150 full-time residents. Inspired by New Urbanist philosophy, the car-free, highly walkable town will include several inns and intimate hotels, shops, restaurants, retail, day spas, pedestrian streets, parks, plazas, and recreational facilities, all located between two of Costa Rica’s loveliest Pacific beaches and 1,000 acres of protected tropical dry forest, which are interlaced with extensive hiking and biking trails. Within the town, the walkable public spaces are interwoven with nature, and the architecture emphasizes indoor-outdoor living and scenic views. Cars are refreshingly absent. Founder Charles Brewer’s core values and beliefs include environmental stewardship, connection to one another and to the rhythms of nature, promotion of wellness, and an emphatic preference for quality of life over quantity of material possessions, understanding that the “good life” is not about material possessions but about human connections, good health, and ecological sustainability.
