These days, more and more people are becoming aware that without bees there are no more bell peppers, raspberries or mustard. Each of those crops is only viable after pollination by a bee, and they are not the only ones! No less than three-quarters of all our vegetable crops only come into existence after pollination. As if that wasn’t enough, these brightly colored creatures are the creators of the so-called ‘nectar of the gods’: honey. With “Dinner With The Queen” organizer Gilles De Backer and chef Lieven Lootens pay tribute to the flowers and bees, especially the queen bee. You can reserve for a culinary bee experience from 17 June to 14 July on their website. Location: ‘Plukweide purfruit’ on the outskirts of East & West Flanders in Belgium: Dentergem, Oeselgem.

It took them almost ten months of construction, but on the 17th of May Doloris will open their doors to the  surrealistic ‘Meta Maze’ and rooftop bar. Doloris’ Meta Maze (as the maze is officially called) is the new creative, touristic hotspot of Tilburg and the Netherlands. A surrealistic maze of 400 m2, full of art and a touch of Alice in Wonderland, Narnia or Stranger Things. A walk- or climb-through art experience with over 40 rooms of surreal art, designed and built by the creators of Karmanoia. In the realm of Doloris you immerse yourself in a world beyond ours. As you follow oblique pathways, slip through hidden loopholes, walk through walls and encounter mysterious objects, time becomes fluid. Meta Maze is the only “immersive art experience” of this format in Europe and unique in the world in terms of form.

Last January we visited Miami Beach, unfortunately just one night and last minute so the hotel was fully booked. But in the morning we hired bikes to stroll the scenic bike path of Miami beach and took a short moment to visit this particular and truly artistic hotel. Even breakfast was fully booked but walking through the entrance to the garden with the famous Damien Hirst’ sculpture ‘Gone but not Forgotten’, was worth the visit. The Faena Hotel Miami Beach is part of the ‘Leading Hotels of the World’ and is famous for their commitment to transform the ordinary to the extraordinary. Faena Hotel Miami Beach features remarkable works by artists including Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons, Alberto Garutti, Gonzalo Fuenmayor, Manuel Ameztoy and Juan Gatti.

So if you’re going to Miami Beach and love art, we definitely recommend you to check whether you can stay at this artistic hotel! You could also try to make a reservation at one of their restaurants or have a sip at the Saxony bar.   lees verder

3DEN (pronounced “Eden”) is the second generation of the ‘third place’ (a space that’s neither home nor work). A non-membership, pay-as-you-use destination, 3DEN offers convenient and luxury amenities including sound-proof phone booths, nap pods, a spacious lounge, refreshments, private showers and more. With a nature-inspired design that fosters ease and focus, it’s the third place between home and work where you can get things done and refresh for wherever you’re headed next. The 3DEN app allows guests to reserve amenities in advance, as well as purchase any of the products they discover while in the space. 3DEN’s first location opened inside Hudson Yards on March 15, 2019, with a network of additional locations launching throughout New York City this year.

The place can be used to get some work done or for example if you have time to fill between meetings, or if you just arrived in town after a long flight and need somewhere to freshen up before going to your office or a meeting. lees verder
