Putting on a Show at the Mermaid Parade



[slideshow_deploy id=’184390′]



The summer season got a bit more memorable at Coney Island’s Mermaid Parade, where over 3,000 individuals from across the five boroughs showed off their community pride and seafaring side!  Over 800,000 people came to Coney Island’s amusement area to witness one of the most artistic parades in the country.  Founded in 1983, the event always spreads joy by brining mythological sea creatures to life!  The parade, which was brought about as a way to pay homage to the neighborhood’s artistic community, even welcomed Coney Island natives Arlo and Nora Guthrie – also known as King Neptune and Queen Mermaid!

A hotel designed around a restaurant concept has been proven successful by Nobu Matsuhisa and now celebrity chef Todd English is entering into the hospitality game with The English Hotel, that opens this month in Las Vegas' burgeoning Arts District, under Marriott's Tribute Portfolio Collection. I've been fortunate enough to call Todd English a good friend for the last two decades, and of all the people I have encountered in my life, he epitomizes the very definition of a bon vivant who enjoys life to the fullest on his terms. At one point in his career, Chef Todd had 58 restaurants bearing the English name, and each project spoke to a different side of his expertise and personality, but all of his experiences have culminated into his latest project - The English Hotel. This labor of love embodies Todd's extraordinary talent and larger than life personality- irreverent, eclectic, cool, approachable, and of course trendsetting with a soul that celebrates good food and good times.
