Is Predictability the New Surprise?
The American Presidential Election. Super Bowl LI. The Oscars. Call us crazy, but at Dandelion Chandelier we see a pattern here. At three iconic events in American life in the past six months, everything that “everyone” expected, even very close to the end, turned out to be wrong – in one case, even after an official announcement had been made and the acceptance speech had begun. One of these incidents on its own might be interesting. Three in a row is riveting. What’s going on here?
Premium Pucks: How to Make a Hockey Game Luxurious
Can ice hockey actually be a luxury experience? With Hockey Day in America having just been celebrated last Sunday, this query seems timely. We asked our Dandelion Chandelier Boston Bureau Chief to weigh in on this profound issue, as the common understanding of the sport doesn’t generally include the word “luxury.” Turns out, there is such a thing as haute ice.
Why Not Devour a Fantastic Book about Food This Weekend?
It’s the start of a long holiday winter weekend for many people. As you prep for some well-deserved leisure time, what are you tossing in your bag, pulling from the stack of books by your fireplace, or adding to your Kindle? We here at Dandelion Chandelier feel that this is a fine time to read a novel set in a restaurant. Or a chef’s memoir. Food history. Or a great cookbook. Pretty well anything that will allow us to escape into the world of food and life in the kitchen.
Why Are Tequila and Mezcal Suddenly So Hot?
The distilled spirit of the moment changes almost as quickly as the must-have handbag of the season. Having just gotten schooled about Japanese whisky, our millennial friends informed us that in their precincts, Mexican spirits are actually the “thing” right now. Some of them spend agreeable Friday nights on the Lower East Side of Manhattan sampling different ones (one could even say that Mexican spirits are muy caliente among millennials, but that would probably be viewed by them as really lame).
Where are the Best Luxury Ski Schools for Kids?
Looking for vacation ideas for the upcoming snow season holidays? Eager to have your children learn to ski (or to increase their skills)? Hoping to raise a future Olympian? We’ve got you covered. Lots of our friends are avid skiers, and they hope that their offspring will be, too. But where’s the best place to go if you want the very best ski (or snowboard) instruction for your brood? Our Snow Editor and our team of far-flung correspondents have a double-black diamond list of suggestions.
It’s Time to Get Schooled About Rare Japanese Whisky
If you’re a regular spirits drinker, then you already know: Japanese whisky is a “thing.” It has been for a while, actually. In our recent travels, we were told by several chatty bartenders that the craze for it continues unabated. Scarcity has caused prices to skyrocket, and driven bars to hoard their supplies. Intrigued by the ongoing frenzy, we decided to investigate. We went in search of knowledge and found ourselves in Lower Manhattan.
