Angelina Pivarnick is giving viewers a tour of the fabulous hotel where Season 4 of Jersey Shore Vacation was filmed.

This time around the Jersey Gang set their sites on Las Vegas, but unlike previous seasons this one was quite different.

The rambunctious group is often seen partying and clubbing as they enjoy the sights of their vacation locale, but COVID-19 put a damper on those plans.

Due to filming amid the pandemic, the cast and crew took over the Hilton Lake Las Vegas, while adhering to the necessary safety protocols.

The resort is located 30 minutes from the famous Las Vegas strip and has views of mountains and desert.

Let’s take a look at where the crew filmed their latest shenanigans.

Take a tour of Hilton Lake Las Vegas

Angelina Pivarnick recently took fans on an exclusive video tour for People and showed off the fancy digs where her and her fellow castmates spent their time while filming the show.

“We made the best out of everything in here,” noted Pivarnick.

“I mean, usually [on] a family vacation we’d go out clubbing and stuff, but here we were just hanging out. It was more like a chill environment and a chill vacation this time.”

The brunette beauty walks through the lobby, and hotel bar –which she said is, “My ultimate, ultimate favorite place in this entire hotel”

She then showed off the restaurant before heading down to the pool.

“As you can see, the sun is always out in sunny Las Vegas. It’s very hot here… Every single day, by the pool, it was like 100, 101 [degrees]. This is where we would have many pool parties,” said the reality TV personality.

And if they grew tired of the pool, the Jersey Shore crew also had a lagoon with a nearby waterfall to keep cool in the hot Vegas sun. “Guys, we had our own beach, all to ourselves. I mean, who’s better than us?” boasts Angelina.

During the tour, the 34-year old explained how linen closets and bedrooms were transformed into confessionals and interview rooms for the show.

Viewers also got a glimpse of the gym and cast suites which you will all get to see during episodes of Jersey Shore Family Vacation.

Jersey Shore kicks off with drama

Meanwhile, with three episodes in, Jersey Shore Family Vacation has already kicked off with lots of drama and tension among the cast.

And it all stems from Angelina Pivarnick’s wedding, which she says was ruined by her castmates.

Pivarnick’s main gripe is with Jenni “JWoww’ Farley, Deena Cortese, and Nicole “Snookie” Polizzi–who quit the show before Season 4.

Angelina pegged her castmates as bridesmaids for her wedding, but when they roasted her during the reception, she was not amused.

Since then, the former friends have been feuding on social media and the whole drama

Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah fame Nidhi Bhanushali photos, Sonu to all, go viral; Check Goa vacation pics

Nidhi Bhanushali bikini photos: Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah is one of the most iconic shows ever produced in India for TV. All the characters are endearing – their strentghs their weaknesses, their charming nature and above all, their good nature. They are helpful and ideal parents, neighbours, relatives. Well, the cast of Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah has grown up, especially the really younger lot.

Now, Nidhi Bhanushali, who essayed the role of Sonu earlier is back in the spotlight again! For all the right reasons, her fans say. The reason are her Nidhi Bhanushali photos. Nidhi was on vacation in Goa, and she has posted pictures that are going viral. The Internet just cannot have enough of them!

Check out Nidhi Bhanushali bikini photo below:

 

In ‘Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah’, Nidhi had an adequate role to catch attention and she did become prominent. Now, she is just breaking the internet with her latest photos in Goa. Needless to say, the weather in Goa is excellent and juxtaposed against the clear, lovely, blue sky with thin patches of white clouds, Nidhi Bhanushali is looking just fabulous. Surely, Nidhi is going places as she is getting a massive mamount of attention!

See Nidhi Bhanushali Instagram Pic below:

Nidhi shared her photos and captioned the same by writing: “Taking vitamin C and vitamin D so that Kovid should stay away from 19.” ApPart from the skin show, there was definitely a message that Nidhi was sending. This was: Get as much sun as possible as the vitamin D derived from it will help strengthen the body and that will in turn help fight the dreaded coronavirus disease that has spread like wildfire across the country as well as the globe after initially starting its rampage in China.

In Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah, the role of Sonu had seen a number of girls. Nidhi herself had come in as a replacement for Jheel Mehta – the original Sonu – in the year 2013 to be eventually substituted by Palak Sindhwani in 2019.

That things are not great in this iconic show was recently outed by, Dilip Joshi aka Jethalal. He said the quality of the show has been affected. He was in a chat with comedian Sorabh Pant during a podcast. The reason behind that, Dilip revealed, was that the writers are pressured to deliver episodes every day. This has led to content being affected.

Dilip said, “Jab aap quantity dekhte hai, toh kahin na kahin quality suffer hoti hi hai. Pehle weekly hum karte the aur writers ke paas bohot time hota tha. Chaar episode likhe, doosre chaar episode agle mahine shoot karna hai.”

Dilip added, “Abhi yeh almost like a factory ho gaya hai. Every day the writers have to find new subjects. I do feel that certain episodes are not up to the mark.”

Considering how successful the show was and continues to draw viewers, its popularity cannot be doubted, nor the fact that it will continue

Check Into This Washington D.C. Hotel Where You Can Sleep in a Historic Townhouse

Pandemic notwithstanding, hotels in Washington, D.C., are filling fast for January’s inauguration festivities. Some of the newest accommodations in the capital not only have impeccable aesthetic pedigree, but they also make social-distancing protocols easy to follow. Opening today and comprising six individual one-bedroom homes-away-from-home, the town houses at Georgetown’s Rosewood hotel each offer 1,100 square feet of serenely decorated space spread among their five levels, plus a private entrance, terrace, and courtyard.

Rosewood tasked the D.C.-born, -bred, and -based designer Thomas Pheasant with the job of creating the one-bedroom super-suites, each of which occupies a petite, early-19th-century brick row house steps from the hotel itself.

“The idea was to create a villa-style experience here in Georgetown,” says Pheasant, whose studio is walking distance from the hotel and who also looked after the recent redo of Rosewood’s beloved Mansion on Turtle Creek property, in Dallas, Texas. “Even before COVID-19,” he continues, “people often wanted something other than the typical hotel. Visitors coming for two weeks or a month on business, or for other purposes, want something more private, a space that can give them the sense of really living in D.C.”

When the town houses came to Pheasant, he found them in a rather dire state. Originally designed as workers’ residences, they didn’t have much in the way of detail, and they had suffered some benign neglect, if not outright abuse. An additional challenge? “While they all look the same from the outside, it was sort of a free-for-all when they were built,” Pheasant says. “Some were narrower than others, some a foot shorter.” He rose to the occasion, tweaking his scheme to meet the needs of each unique space, imagining, for example, a beautiful little study in a bay-windowed nook off the entryway of one unit. “The odd ones that had a lot of quirks turned out to have the most interesting to work with,” he says.

The Albion Rooms is three years in the making from The Libertines

Jason Knott

Heralded by a jet black facade and crimson neon signage, this Victorian townhouse brings a heady dose of Gothic fanfare to Margate’s Eastern Esplanade, courtesy of indie rockers The Libertines. The band – working with designer Rhiannon Sussex – have spent three years transforming a run-down, rather insalubrious hotel into a kooky, seven-room boutique crashpad.

Bedrooms are louche-luxe; onyx offset with gilded touches, shabby-chic mirrors, Pete Doherty’s expressive artwork, vintage typewriters and Haeckels toiletries. Downstairs there’s a recording studio and the chequerboard-floored Waste Land bar for Gunga Gin and tonics and hearty burgers. Menus have been magicked up by chef Joe Hill of the Table in Broadstairs, and the best of the bunch are the Thursday-Sunday fine dining suppers served at the Arcady Coffee House, which pack a local lilt and Asian twists – think Steve Gadd’s sourdough, hand-dived Rye scallops and crescents of roasted pumpkin in seaweed dashi – set to candlelight and a Carl Barât-approved soundtrack.

While die-hard Libertines fans will be tickled by band memorabilia and lyrics in-jokes (such as the tongue-in-cheek “Death” artwork above a staircase), theatrical interiors and top-notch dining make it a rip-roaring stay in its own right.

Over on Scotland’s west coast, another seaside newbie making waves is a nine-room, family-run hotel from hospitality pro Paul Sloan and partner and GM Ioana Moldovan. With the help of interior designer Dominic Paul of Glasgow-based IBDP, the Victorian property and former guesthouse on the Corran Esplanade has been transformed into a rustic-cool bolthole.

Room categories range from wee through intimate to gorgeous, and most have sea, garden or woodland views. Personality-packed bedrooms are kitted out with quirky touches such as statement timber walls, Hepburn radios, a tartan-clad artist’s mannequin and Timorous Beasties thistle-patterned wallpaper. Tub lovers should make a beeline for room six for the sexy red clawfoot slipper bath.

For nightcaps, there’s an honesty bar with comfy velvet couches and a range of tipples including Scottish gins and whiskys. At breakfast, fuel up on brioche French toast and sweet potato and avocado hash ahead of strolls to

4 Hotel Stocks to Check Into Ahead of the Holidays

InvestorPlace – Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips

Hotel stocks are down, but they are not out for the count.

The Dow Jones U.S. Hotels Index has risen over 68% from its March bottom this year and finished October up a slight 0.2%, while the broader Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 4.6% for the month.

Despite being part of the hard-hit tourism sector and lumped in with the reopening trade, hotels — particularly the largest U.S. chains — have held up surprisingly well since the summer. For example, hotel stocks have certainly done better than airline shares, which have fallen a combined 14% during the last week of October.

Until there is a vaccine for the Covid-19 pandemic, there can be no sure things for any of the travel sectors. But with the holidays approaching, and the vaccine expected in the first half of 2021, these four hotel stocks could prove to be a nice addition to any portfolio.

Hotel Stocks to Buy: Hilton Hotels & Resorts (HLT)

While HLT stock has bounced 39% from its March low, it remains 22% below its 52-week high at about $90 a share.

At its current price, Hilton stock looks like a buy unlike other hotel stocks. While the hotel chain has suffered a downturn this year with an occupancy rate of 39% through the first six months of the year, Hilton continues to be in decent financial shape.

In the first half of 2020, revenue was down 47% at nearly $2.5 billion. However, net losses were only $412 million. Based on adjusted earnings, Hilton remained profitable with $38 million in net income. Much of the company’s resilience is due to  the fact that it sold direct ownership of many of its properties a few years ago. That has left it in a position where it can weather the pandemic — and eventually rebound when travel levels return.

And Hilton is well-positioned to rebound. The chain has 6,200 properties in 118 countries. It has also built a sizable loyalty program with its popular “Hilton Honors” rewards, which boasts more than 100 million members worldwide. With a vaccine on the horizon, the company could start reporting a revenue rally as soon as the first half of 2021.

Until then, Hilton remains cash flow positive with trailing-12-month free cash flow generation of $1.5 billion on revenue of $7.2 billion. Analysts remain bullish, with a median price target of $92 a share and a high estimate of $110. That median already represents an increase from the current price — and that’s still without a vaccine available yet.

Check out the $1.9M renovations at Jackson’s Martin Luther King Jr. Recreation Center

JACKSON, MI – Residents will soon be able to see the results of a project seven months in the making at the Martin Luther King Jr. Recreation Center.

Jackson city officials unveiled the $1.9-million renovations at the center on Jackson’s south side on Friday, Oct. 23, and community members can see the inside themselves as soon as Election Day.

The renovations, done by Summit Township-based contractor R.W. Mercer, include a larger kitchen, an office for the center director, an expanded weight room, a resurfaced gym floor, new windows and a new roof. The gym equipment in the weight room was donated by Arlo Steel, officials said.

The community space at 1107 Adrian St. first opened in 1968 and offers youth and community programming and provides meals.

City officials said they were proud to see this community investment come to fruition.

“We’re talking about a building that went 50 years – a generation of folks grew up at the King Center without seeing the city make, I think, the necessary investments that we just got done this year,” Jackson Mayor Derek Dobies said.

“So, we’re excited about it. We’re excited about what it means for our community, what it means for the south side, and what it means for what we’ve been talking about in bringing some of the progress that you see downtown out and into the neighborhoods.”

It’s exciting to see the first major project at the center since its establishment, Jackson Vice Mayor Arlene Robinson said. She recalls attending youth programming there as a child, then bringing her children to the community center as a parent.

Robinson was also excited, she said, to see Jackson residents honored throughout the building. Two notable hometown heroes now

have their names on the center’s two classrooms: Flamingo Brown, a community advocate and the first Black and first female president of the Jackson School Board, and Tony Dungy, an NFL Hall of Famer.

“People have wanted to have a place where they can come and be proud of,” said John Willis, the city’s chief equity officer and a former director of the center. “I don’t know about you, but 20 years that I’ve been around here, I don’t know of another multimillion-dollar project on the south side of Jackson. This is huge for our community.”

Officials have not yet determined when indoor programming will resume at the recreation center. They’ll decide after the Nov. 3 general election because the center is a polling location for Jackson’s First Ward.
