The Sexualization of Halloween - crazy costumes!

At one point Halloween was about dressing up all scary and going to a few parties.  But over time it's gotten more and more sexy - more daring too.  From parties that push the limits further each season to the sexier outfits all sorts of websites are selling Halloween is for sure getting more adult in nature.

 I don't mind this trend but I wonder just how far it might go.  Soon Halloween might just be naked orgies!  In the mean time, Happy Halloween people!

Flaming Bob Marley's - a shot with kick!

I did my first flaming Bob Marley shot at the Hedonism II bar in Negril around 2003.  Sucking on that straw and watching the colors & fire coming up was something I'll never forget, wait, I forgot about it by that next morning, hey...I had a few.  When at an all-inclusive resort where the drinks are "free" you might as well step out of your drink box and try a few new crazy drinks.  Hey, when in Rome...

How do you make one?

Round up the following:

  • Grenadine Syrup (the red)
  • Creme De Menthe (the green)
  • 151 Proof Rum (the yellow)

Quantities for one drink:

  • 1/3 oz Grenadine Syrup
  • 1/3 oz Creme de Menthe
  • 1/3 oz 151 Proof Rum

Blending Instructions:

  • Divide a tall shot glass into thirds, fill the lowest third with grenadine syrup, the middle third with creme de menthe, and float the 151 in the top third.
  • Wet a thin straw, light the 151 by passing a lighter over it, plunge the straw to the bottom of the glass into the grenadine syrup and suck that baby down.
  • Check to see if your face is on fire.  :-)

What's up with the "W"?

So I have this little travel blog and we have a W hotel about 8 miles from us in oh-so-trendy Hollywood.  Last week I had a buddy in town so I decided to spin him around town and we found ourselves high on-top the W taking in the views.  The place was pimping!

(Yours truly at a W deluxe cabana)

With locations like Hollwood, Miami Beach, Atlanta, Chicago, New York, Boston and even overseas in London, Complete List, The W hotels are spreading their hipness across the globe.  W is owned by Starwood Hotels and at most locations a room will cost you at least $240 or more. 

(The W Hotel in H'Wood) 

 While staying at a W you'll enjoy such things as cool pool decks, way cool bars, super cool rooms, free WiFi & shuttle service.   Don't forget about your food and drink!  When you book online at the link below you get TWO free drinks, free parking and breakfast is on the house.  (they better at those rates)  :-)   

But, it's a very cool hotel to stay if you're in the mood for trendy luxury.  If you're looking to save money, you better hit up a Motel 6 or something.

Should you order ED pills online?


I've known a lot of my gentelmen brothers to take some ED pills while on vacation, or at home, or at cool parties to help give them an extra boost in the bedroom.  I honestly don't think any of them needed it (but how would I know) but I've also wondered is it wise to take them prior to an actual ED need?

Sites like this one, Erectile Dysfunction, sell the famous little pills in generic from just $2 bucks a pill in buying in quantity or around $3-$4 a pill when you make a small 10 pill $40 dollar order.  They are selling all the famous knock offs:  Viagra, Cialis and Levitra. 

How long do they normally last?
Viagra: 5 hours
Levitra:  6 hours
Cialis:  up to 36 hours

(Cialis Pack of 10)

Some side affects of any PDE5 blocker (the stuff most of these are made of) can include color vision errors (mostly with Viagra), headaches, muscle cramps (mostly with Cialis), it may lower your blood pressure and leave you with a killer 4 hour woody!   Of course any of these facts are here-say as I'm not a doctor.  

So are the risks worth the pleasure?  Is the guy on the blue boat in Negril still selling?  :-)

Nude resort in Tampa to be used for a TV show!

Next month "Nak'd Truth. Reality. Stripped" is set to shoot at Tampa's Caliente Resort.   The show will feature seven people ranging in age from 20 to 35 who get the winter job of their lifetime working at Caliente - Caliente Tampa.

 Viewers at home won't get to see much flesh, camera crews plan to shoot creatively from the side or the chest up. All private parts will be blurred.

Pirate Latitudes - a great read!

If you'd like a good read while at the airport or in flight here's a nice little 300 page plus read from the recently late Michael Crichton (pronounced like frighten but with a C).  He's the same author that wrote Jurassic Park and came up with the hit TV show ER.  Steven Spielberg also has picked up this book and in 2011 it'll start to turn into a movie.   It features Jamaica and the general Caribbean so it's a great "take me home" read.

Weird fact:  This book was discovered on Crichton's computer by his assistant after death.  Was it really meant to go to press?

(click the link to buy it from just $5, the 
cool old paper looking hardcopy)
 Pirate Latitudes from Amazon

Crichton sets the story in 17th century Port Royal, Jamaica, home to all the shady pirates and privateers of the Caribbean. A motley band of pirates head out to storm a Spanish fortress in the Caribbean and capture a ship of Spanish gold.   Of course things go amiss and the resulting adventure is a sound one.

US Passports - info you might not know!

I'm sure most of you know what passports are, hell, most of you probably have passports.  But here a few things you might not know about that all important travel document...

(the old passport that'll be phased out by 2017)
  • Passports are good for 10 years
  • In 2007, the Department of State issued 18,382,798 passports
  • American passports had green covers from 1941 until 1976
  • It takes about 6 weeks to renew one
  • It current cost $135 for a passport
    (the new, since 2006, passport with
    the cool computer chip)

    Now they have passports cards instead of the book if you're going to just travel back and forth to Canada, Mexico and a few local other countries. (don't try to fly to Europe on one)  Your first passport card will cost $45 if you are an adult, $35 for the kids.  Since 2008 over 1,000,000 of these suckers have been printed off and sent.  At the moment you can't expedite the time of 1-3 months it'll take you to get one but whatever, they're still kinda cool.  To get the scoop go here: Official Passport Card.

    So if you plan on going anywhere further than your own backyard these days you'll need a nice updated, not newer than 6 months (in some cases) and not about to expire passport.  Not to mention, they're kind of a cool travel memorabilia.

    Garden of Eden in Key West

    Way down in Key West lies a bar on top a building called Garden of Eden.  Do you want to drink while getting naked?  Then go here:  Google Map.  

    The barstaff sometimes go topless at this bar above Duval in Key West.  They also have an area where often times you'll find a airbrush artist ready to paint you and yours up in a cool design.  Prices have been reported to start from $45 for the services depending on what you get.

    Key West is a very casual city so for many they'll just wear their shorts and tank tops.  For others they'll go full monty here at Garden of Eden.  One rule:  NO PHOTOS ALLOWED.

    How much to tip your hotel staff?

    I hope most of you want to tip the hard working staff that make your vacations and travel better.  But of course nobody wants to pay too much because we're in a recession!!!   So I'm going to try to guide you in the right direction player.

    Room service:  Check your bill because often times gratuity is already billed, but 12% to 18%.

    Your morning maid:  It can really vary but call it at LEAST $2 to $6 per day.

    Valet parking:  $1 to $3 when they retrieve your car.

    Doorman:  Depends on what they do.  If they help with bags, $1 to $2 per bag.

    Bellstaff:   (the dude that lugs your baggage to your room) gets $1 to $2 per bag.

    When you travel all you need is your I-Pod.

    Two things I love are traveling and I-Phones.  And this dude thinks you can use your I-Phone solely when you travel to stay in touch with peeps back home.  Heck, you can even catch Irie FM on it when at home as I talked about here, Irie FM on your I-Phone.

    But as you travel, these are some of the things you can do
    • It's your computer
    • It's your VoIP Phone
    • It's your camera
    • It's your recorder
    • It's your social networking
    • It's your text message tool
    • It's your entertainment on the road
     (just trying to keep your attention)

     With all the app's the Apple store offers (a lot of them free) and Google Voice/G-Mail you can do just about anything so long as you can get that phone near WiFi.   When you're in the US, not a problem, just use the phone's 3G service.  But when you're out of country, WiFi turns your phone into a virtual phone!

    Do you want to make calls to landlines back in the states?  Get Skype and call all you want.  Do you want people to be able to call you?  Get Google Voice and have them call you in Jamaica on your "local" line.   Text whoever you want using Google Voice as if you were back at work.  Plus, the App store has a ton of cool travel apps, 10 of which are free and outlined here:  10 free travel apps.

    The world goes to hell and trip insurance rises!

    The U.S. Travel Insurance Association held its quarterly meeting last week in South Carolina.  President Jim Grace said between the devastating earthquake in Haiti in January and the Icelandic volcano eruption in April, travel insurance became more popular this year than in the months following the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.  The insurance covers travelers against natural and man-made disasters, as well as financial problems, such as a cruise line filing for bankruptcy or an airline stopping service. 

     Before the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, about 8 percent of travelers purchased insurance, according to Grace.  That number settled in at about 25 percent but fluctuates with news of a disaster, such as a hurricane. 

    Grace also serves as president and chief executive of leading travel insurance comparison website his company launched a decade ago and, at the time, searched three insurers for the best rates. Today it uses 22 providers in the U.S. and Canada.

    Single greatest photo ever taken at Hedo II?

    You tell me, is this the single best photo ever taken at Hedonism II in Negril, Jamaica?  It's my favorite travel resort in the Caribbean and with her blessings there, you can't go wrong.  She was there this spring to shoot her TV show "Bad Girls Miami".

    Spice Lanzarote - a new lifestyle friendly & all inclusive resort

    We got the resorts in Jamaica plus resorts in Mexico.  Now, if you would rather fly across the Atlantic to the island of Lanzarote that's 81 miles off the norther coast of Africa - you got one more option.  Google Map.   Spice opened up over the summer of 2010 and bills itself as a nudist/lifestyle friendly/all inclusive resort.

    (The island of Lanzarote)
    A few FAQ's off their site read like this...

        Is nudity allowed everywhere?
    If you desire, you may be naked in all areas of the complex at all times of the day and night; however we do ask that guests dress in the restaurant and in reception and if you go out of the resort.

    Is sexual activity permitted everywhere?
    Spice thrives on a sexually charged atmosphere and the freedom to indulge in your fantasies. But please do respect other guests that may not be as liberated as you and may actually find some activities offensive if carried out in public.

     Spice has everythying you could expect from these types of resorts including pools, good food, a sexy disco and even an adult playroom - you can guess what happens there.  SEX!  Theme nights include Spice night, Black and White night, a carnival night and more.

     I'm seeing prices from 108 to 200 per person per night, but mind you I'm pretty sure that's in the Euro.  At press time one euro is worth about $1.45 in American moola.   You do the math.  :-)  They also have several deals where you can book for 7 nights and get a free  night or two.  One side note:  It's a three day minimum stay. 

    To see more about them go direct to their site. 

    Have you been there?  If so, please comment!!!

    Are you willing to pay extra for food on a cruise?

    One reason a lot of people enjoy taking a cruise is the all-you-can-eat concept that they offer.  Most cruise lines provide all meals and snacks as part of the initial costs of jumping on-board. (excluding liquor, damn)

    (the steak-less Carnival Triumph)

    However, Carnival Cruise Lines are kicking around the idea of introducing a 9 ouncer filet mignon or an 18-ounce grilled prime rib chop for an extra $18 per pop!  The three ships with this new propostal will be on the Carnival Paradise, Carnival Triumph and Carnival Inspiration.  Why?  Each of these ships don't have a current $30-a-person steakhouses that the other Carnival ships do have.
    So, are you willing to pony up for some steak on a cruise line?   Not me!
