Once upon a time the building above was the American Radiator building. In 2001 it was converted into The Bryant Park Hotel. Somehow I've never seen this when visiting NYC. Clearly, I need to schedule a trip ASAP!

I just read an article on the 6 coolest offices in the world and picked one to share. Unfortunately, Dell (where I currently work) didn't make this list. Apparently, the 80's hasn't made a comeback in office furniture. Oh, well there's always next year.
Anyway, I chose to show you Red Bull's office in London designed by Jump-Studios.

Um, slide...yes, please. This alone made me want to share this office. Who doesn't want a slide from floor to floor...seems like a more efficient way to get around an office.
Conference rooms and lounge space. Source
Ok, so I couldn't find any pictures of the actual "work" spaces, but I figure with all the cool lounging spaces you can just pick up your laptop and work in one of those areas.

Workshop Kitchen & Bar

I love the design of this restaurant, Workshop Kitchen & Bar located in Palm Springs and designed by SOMA Architects. Simple sleek lines using monolithic structures and materials, you can't go wrong. Check it out!

White Christmas

One of these days I want to have a white Christmas. And by white I mean a chosen place with the good snow, not some ash colored slush like in Ohio. Sorry, if you're from Ohio, I don't mean this in a rude way, I just want snow from Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, something along those lines. Make sense?
PS- Merry Christmas

Trail of Lights

As I said before, I LOVE Christmas lights and couldn't wait to go see the Trail of Lights this year. It's been 2 years since we had this event. Yay, for Marty organizing this fun jaunt on a cold night! All you need are some gloves, good friends and a roadie of red wine, you're good to go!

 I really need to work on my nighttime photography. Apparently, I need to stay still a little longer. Oh, well you get the gist, it's the infamous Zilker Tree.
