Participate as an Accomplice to the Big Apple

New York City

My Recommendation Tip

What is Accomplice New York? Organizers and past participants alike are in cahoots to reveal as little information about the details of the experience as possible, and the entire setup seems to depend on secrecy. But what can be gleaned is that Accomplice is includes a combination of a tour of the more obscure parts of Manhattan, audience-participatory game and scavenger hunt, and theater performance. Whatever the particularities of the show, Accomplice has been creating some serious buzz since its first run in 2005...

Celebrating Freedom in Culturama

St Kitts

My Recommendation Tip

St. Kitts and Nevis islands are known for their numerous festivals, the most exciting of which is Nevis’ Culturama. Typically held in late July or early August, the festival is meant to coincide with the island’s celebration of the emancipation of the slaves, which occurs on August first. Slave descendents represent the dominant demographic in the Nevis population, so the celebration of emancipation is particularly meaningful for the islanders. In addition to emancipation, the festival celebrates the culture and customs of native Nevisians.

Bagels Have a Canadian Cousin

Montreal

My Recommendation Tip

Bagels in the United States are synonymous with New York, but few Americans are aware that Montreal is also renowned for these breakfast breads. The Montreal bagel, however, is distinct from the New York bagel. Smaller, sweeter, and denser than its American cousin, the key to an authentic Montreal bagel is that it is boiled in honey-sweetened water before being baked in a wood-fired oven...

Aboard the Orlando Titanic Experience

Orlando

My Recommendation Tip

When there is mention of “Titanic,” most people under the age of forty conjure images of a baby-faced Leonardo DiCaprio shouting joyfully off the end of a CGI boat. But long before it was a record-breaking James Cameron film, the Titanic was the most opulent passenger ship of its time that suffered one of the most dramatic tragedies in recent history. It’s also the subject of an entire museum in Orlando...

Sunday in Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires

My Recommendation Tip

In Buenos Aires, as with many Latin American and Spanish cities, Sunday is a day of rest where many shops and businesses are closed and people spend their time relaxing or barbequing asado with their families and friends. However, San Telmo’s Plaza Dorrego on Sunday is quite the opposite of a quiet day at home. The neighborhood is bustling with thousands of locals and tourists alike who come to peruse more than 270 market stands.
