Cafetaria ‘t Huus serves French Fries with soft ice cream (‘French Fries 2.0). For the last couple of months people are ordering it on a regular base! We did put these French Fries 2.0 in our list: ‘Fries with…

Dinner served in a dumpster

People in San Francisco are paying to eat in a dumpster! Food waste is fancy, but this is a new one for us: eating dinner in a dumpster. Watch this video about this initiative. The dining series — known as Salvage Supperclub — was meant to start a conversation about food waste. As such, the menu is devised of food that would otherwise be thrown out (imperfect produce, for example). Proceeds from the dinners (past events have cost $125 a person) go to organizations who feed those in need with — what else — food waste.

Another Brewery hotel is planned in California

Although originally announced in 2011, The Stone hotel part of the Stone Brewery is slated to open in the first quarter of 2018. They’re partnering with San Diego-based hospitality collective, Untitled Hospitality to this one-of-a-kind concept. Just a short walk from the adjacent Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens. A bar-style lobby check-in, 99 rooms, 6 suites, a rooftop garden and a pool, the Stone Hotel will mirror the philosophy of all Stone projects, exhibiting a high level of creativity and wow factor, ultimately creating a memorable, true craft beer experience. We already spotted the beer themed Brewdog hotel in Scotland.

A Disco Sour Cocktail

A drink which changes its colours just like a mood ring. Butterfly pea flower is the unique ingredient that makes the hue-shifting drink special. The 492 Restaurant in Charleston, South Carolina, offers the Disco Sour Cocktail which is a real treat to the eyes and a party to the taste buds.

Elvis Presley fan? Check out this guest house at Graceland!

Elvis Presley fans have reasons to rock and roll with the grand opening of the singer’s guest house at Graceland.

Graceland recently opened doors to the newly built guest house for one and all. The official opening will be in October this year. With a video in the article at Luxury Launches.

An indoor rain forest in your hotel?

You don’t have to guess twice, it will be built in Dubai, world’s first hotel to have its own rainforest. In The Rosemont Hotel & Residence Dubai you will enjoy an outdoor rainforest, a beach, a stream, trees, an adventure play area for children, a bowling alley, a trampoline, a splash pool, a sky pool, restaurants, health club, 280-unit serviced apartments and 450 hotel rooms.

The Rio Olympics Soup Kitchen

Some of the world’s best chefs made the Rio Olympics more enjoyable for people who need the Olympic spirit most. Alain Ducasse, Joan Roca and Massimo Bottura, among others, did turn leftover scraps from the Olympic Village into nutritious meals for the homeless in Rio. The challenge marks a big departure from the kinds of ingredients and conditions the chefs – many of whom hold Michelin stars – are used to. Instead of truffles and caviar, they’ll be tasked with turning surplus foods, gone uneaten by athletes, into 5,000 meals for the homeless in the Lapa neighborhood of Rio de Janeiro.
