Robert Mars – The Intersection of Celebrity and Consumer Cultures

On a midsummer morning, Robert Mars drops his two young sons at day camp, then heads to a local coffee shop to discuss plans for a skateboarding park with fellow community members. Clad in blue jeans and t-shirt, with gray hair and a scruffy beard, he looks like any other Fairfield County dad – until he returns to his back-country studio to create internationally renowned contemporary art masterpieces.

TRAVEL

Napa + Cape Cod = The North Fork

No need to fly across the country to winery hop or sit in Cape traffic to experience quiet seaside towns and fresh local seafood. At the end of the L.I.E. the road splits: Route 24 to the right leads to the Hamptons and Route 25 to the left meanders by the vineyards and farm stands of the North Fork. There are stretches of beach and opportunities for fishing, paddle boarding, and other water sports, but locally harvested wine and seafood are the big draws. Fall is harvest season, full of special wine dinners and apple and pumpkin picking. If you follow the left fork, there’s no need to pack designer duds—men don’t even require collared shirts at the area’s best restaurants. But don’t let the casualness fool you. Hoteliers, restaurateurs, and sommeliers are sophisticated and on their game.  Read More…

Why is Traveling a Fitness Nightmare?

“Remember that happiness is a way of travel – not a destination.” – Roy M. Goodman. I was prompted to write this article because of a breakdown my son had recently on one of our numerous car and plane trips. He’s 18 and into rowing. He hopes for recruitment, so we are in the thick of traveling to many college campuses. He lost it and proclaimed, “how can I possibly achieve my all-time best 2K this fall on the erg if I can’t maintain my diet and workouts? I’ll never reach my goal!” The kid trains five days a week, 1 1/2 hours a day, and his diet is stricter than mine. It is high in protein and many many balanced meals throughout the day. He has to be lean and strong! Read More…
