Snack Time & Chill

The weather outside may be frightful, but inside a New York City igloo it’s positively delightful. (Bonus: There are also snacks.)

Reserve a cozy igloo in Bank of America’s Winter Village at Bryant Park, and you’ll receive a pitcher of beer or mulled wine, an artisanal cheese board, and a s’mores kit complete with graham crackers, chocolate, marshmallows and a marshmallow roaster. #Toasty.

Turkey Time

Most Americans (42%) dig into their Thanksgiving dinners between 1-3 p.m., according to a Statista poll. Twenty-nine percent eat between 4-5 p.m., followed by 14% between 5-7 p.m. 12% dine from noon-1 p.m., with 4% preferring a late-night feast at 8 p.m. or later.

Dream Theme

A fourth theme park is coming to Universal Orlando Resort, and it’s sure to be epic. Literally. Dubbed Universal’s Epic Universe, the 750-acre site will also host hotels, shops, restaurants, an entertainment center and more, just a few miles southeast of the current park.

It’s Universal’s newest offering since Volcano Bay opened in May 2017. Details are scarce, but Tom Williams, chairman and CEO for Universal Parks & Resorts, isn’t holding back. “It will become the most immersive and innovative theme park we have ever created,” he said.
