Continental teases gravel tires, Michelin DH tires to return, & more from Vee Tire Co.

There were a lot of new products this year at the Sea Otter Classic, but not everything was official. It seemed that in the world of tires, there were a number of companies showing prototypes, or teasing new models that aren’t available just yet. But judging by the looks of those tires, we’re betting it won’t be […] The post Continental teases gravel tires, Michelin DH tires to return, & more from Vee Tire Co. appeared first on Bikerumor.

Amsterdam cannabis coffeeshop guide

Amsterdam’s coffeeshops have a vaulted reputation. Travelers from around the world come to experience the cannabis-friendly coffeeshops that have made Amsterdam the marijuana capital of Europe. They’ve also, undoubtedly, caused more than a little confusion with people just looking for an espresso (while coffeeshops often have coffee and juice, “cafes” are the cannabis-free places for your caffeine fix). The Netherlands’ Dutch Drug and Coffee Shop Law opened the country up to selling marijuana...

Best US gas station restaurants

Seasoned road trippers know that the best food often isn’t found at Michelin star restaurants or prepared by world-renowned chefs. Sometimes, the most enjoyable dining experiences take place just after 2:00 AM in your car when you’ve been driving for nine straight hours and stopped at a little burrito joint attached to a gas station. The best of these hole-in-the-wall eateries can leave an enduring impression on travelers because the food is hearty, affordable, and prepared by people who kno...

Jewel Changi Airport review – An architectural marvel at the world’s best airport

In March 2019 Singapore Changi was crowned the best airport in the world for the seventh year in a row. That was just before Jewel Changi Airport opened. After previewing this architectural marvel I can’t see how any other airport is going to take this title in the foreseeable future. Jewel Changi is a mixed use development that sits inside the U-shape of the terminal buildings, making use of this previously underutilised space. Singapore have become masters of making use of limited space, ...

The ex-Googler reinventing restaurant reservations gives his best tips for booking the busiest joints in town

In a Twitter thread Thursday, Tock founder and Chief Technology Officer Brian Fitzpatrick shared one of his top pieces of advice for booking a table at a busy restaurant: make a reservation for four instead of two. Tock is an online reservation management platform that also offers guests and table management systems for restaurants. Fitzpatrick also suggests diners look for reservations at 6 p.m. or 8 p.m. instead of 7 p.m. to increase the odds of landing a table at popular restaurants. Visit...

The Mount Juliet Estate in Ireland & Crafting the Perfect Getaway

After several trips to the Emerald Isle, I have learned that it is shockingly difficult to find a bad hotel or resort. Kindness and warm hospitality are among the many reasons why I love traveling around Ireland, and in the country’s best hotels those are qualities found in abundance. There are though a handful of properties that aren’t just nice, they’re remarkable places to stay and explore. They become part of the destination, part of the adventure and that is certainly the case at the expan...

Where to eat at Paris airport

The Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris, France, sees nearly 70 million passengers annually, making it the second largest airport in France and the eighth largest in the world in terms of passenger volume. And while Paris in and of itself is a destination, the airport is a major hub for connecting flights — more than 30 percent of the people in Charles de Gaulle every year are connecting to somewhere else. That means lots of downtime for eating. You can find a decent meal in pretty much every ...

The $500m Shed: inside New York's quilted handbag on wheels

This puffed-up cultural citadel was meant to be an endlessly evolving, telescopic arts complex. But the glistening billionaires’ playground rising up beside it had other plansIt seems fitting that the cultural centre of New York’s latest luxury private development should look like a quilted Chanel handbag. Rearing up at the northern end of the High Line on Manhattan’s reborn West Side, the Shed presents a 10-storey wrapping of puffed-up diamond cushions to passersby, standing as the gaudy gatewa...

Exploring Ardmore and the Cliff House Hotel in Ireland

It was late in the afternoon as I navigated the switchback country roads that would take me to Ardmore. At least, I assumed that they would take me to Ardmore. I had a faith in my GPS that is akin to the fanaticism of a 14th century Crusader but, as always, that faith was well placed as I quickly found myself in the small, hilly hamlet of Ardmore. People have lived along the craggy cliffs of Ardmore for a very long time and it is even considered to be the oldest Christian settlement in the coun...

Guide to pintxos in Basque Country

Basque Country in northern Spain has long attracted anyone interested in trying some of the world’s most celebrated dishes. The region’s restaurants have earned around 30 Michelin stars, and one city, San Sebastián, has the highest concentration of Michelin-starred restaurants per capita in the world. Another unofficial capital of the autonomous Spanish Basque Country is Bilbao, which has a strong, centuries-old culinary presence as well. But you don’t have to eat at a world-renowned restaura...

US modern Indian food movement

The shiny orange layer of slime sitting on top of the chicken thighs looked suspicious. The sign said “butter chicken,” but it looked more like what was left in the sink when I was done washing dishes. As an apprehensive 10-year-old, pretty much everything under the yellowing lights of the $8.95, all-you-can-eat buffet looked suspect. The walls were covered in pictures of the Taj Mahal, old Bollywood movies played on TV, and the entire place smelled like a New York City bodega took the conten...

Best places to visit in Thailand

Thailand is among the most talked-about destinations on the planet — though what people have to say varies dramatically. Some travelers come home claiming to have found themselves on long, white-gold beaches. Others turn up their noses at the Thai islands, claiming they’ve been overrun by backpackers. Still others rave about the diving, mountain scenery, and world-class cuisine — it all depends on where you go. Whether your interests align with nature or culture, early mornings or late nights...

Get a taste of Spanish culinary history on Google Arts & Culture

The last time you enjoyed a flavorful spoonful of gazpacho, you probably didn't stop to think about how the Spanish dish became a popular staple on restaurant menus worldwide. Made of sun-ripened tomatoes, vinegar and garlic, the dish was once only enjoyed by the poorest communities in Andalucia. Yet by the 18th century, gazpacho’s undeniable deliciousness brought it from modest farm tables all the way into the most opulent dining rooms—including the Royal Palace of Madrid’s Gala Dining Hall.A d...

Netflix releasing 'Street Food' show

When the first season of Chef’s Table debuted in 2015, it changed both food media and the way people consume food media. Director David Gelb’s slow-motion shots and lifting classical music simply took things to another level for fine-dining restaurants and chefs. Now, the same attention is coming to street food with a show called, in as straightforward a name as possible, Street Food. The show is produced by Gelb and his production company, Supper Club, and set to release on Netflix on April...

Is Amazon Itself the Biggest Problem with Fake Reviews?

Amazon refused to publish my negative review of the Netgear R6700 Nighthawk router they sold me. Why? The problem of fake reviews on TripAdvisor, Amazon, Yelp, and other similar websites featuring user reviews to provide an important part of helping people make decisions is well-known.  There are problems with both fake positive reviews (where establishments arrange for fake positive reviews) and fake negative reviews (presumably created by jealous competitors).A year ago a couple of people in L...

Launching from YC, Eclipse Foods casts a long shadow over the $336 billion dairy industry

Eclipse Foods may be the company that finally takes milk out of the dairy business. Ever since the acquisition of WhiteWave Foods by the French dairy giant Danone for over $10 billion investors have been thirsting for a technology that would give consumers a better tasting, more milky (for lack of a better word), milk substitute than the highly valuable (but not very tasty) almond, soy, and other plant based dairy alternatives. There are at least $37.5 billion worth of other reasons for investor...

Truffle Hunting in Tuscany: in the woods, with a dog, digging for tartufo

The truffle hunter, much like his cousin the porcini hunter, is a lone beast. Out at the crack of dawn with his faithful dog, armed with a spade and dressed in camouflage, he moves under cover of darkness so that nobody finds out where he searches for the precious subterranean fungus. He spreads the aromatic equivalents of landmines to throw rival beasts off track, doing everything to protect his livelihood, for bringing in a precious edible of sufficient size can feed his family for a week.

The new Ford Explorer can be equipped with tires that can repair themselves (F)

The new Ford Explorer can be outfitted with a set of Michelin Selfseal tires. The tires can handle nail-and-screw-type punctures by using an embedded rubber compound to patch holes on the fly. The tires will be standard on several trim levels of the 2020 Ford Explorer. You might have heard of "run flat" tires that can continue rolling for a short period of time after being damaged, giving drivers the chance to avoid immediately pulling over to change the tire or make a repair. But Ford and Mi...
