For all of The Amangiri Resort’s grandiose beauty, it sits unassumingly nestled in the 600 acre desert landscape of Canyon Point, Utah, as if it grew out of the sand and lofty bluffs itself. It’s modern luxurious design was built in the earth tones of it’s surrounding, making the hotel all the more bucolic. The resort is a 25-minute drive from Page, Arizona, the town that houses the amazing Antelope Canyon, and a 15-minute drive to the shores of Lake Powell. With an almost magnanimous stone escarpment in the middle of a sizable pool, a cellar, spa and library, this…

If you live in the Chicagoland area and love Netflix’s Stranger Things, the dope AF sci-fi thriller about the suddenly other-worldly happenings in 1980’s Hawkins, Indiana, and wouldn’t mind some responsible after-work libations (because who wouldnt?), then Logan Square’s pop-up bar “The Upside Down” is for you. The name is a nod to the show’s evil nether-verse haunting the Byers’ family and crew, and you won’t be disappointed.
