Give “Glamping” a Whole New Meaning With a Luxury RV



Do you like to go glamping? Give it a whole new meaning this year with a luxury RV

Glamping VS Camping 

In case there is any confusion around the term glamping, here is a quick breakdown of the differences between glamping and camping. 


Glamping is the act of camping, but with modern amenities and facilities. So, instead of going out into the woods and roughing it with a tent or small trailer and a few supplies, you would be at a populated campground with activities, facilities, and hookups to plumbing, power, and water. 


Camping does not have to be roughing it. But it is not considered glamping until you have amenities that preserve your daily living standards. Such as plumbing. Many people prefer camping over glamping. But if you are just getting into it, glamping is definitely the way to go. 

Advantages of a Luxury RV

Glamping can be done without a luxury RV, especially when you park your trailer at a luxury campsite that has every amenity you could possibly think of. While this is true, there is no doubt that having a luxury travel trailer makes it a whole lot easier. You could even glamp without going to a luxury campsite. Here are a few advantages that come with owning a luxury RV. 

Nice Interior

The interior is amazing. Luxury RVs typically look amazing on the inside. With nice seats, a great kitchenette, and warm natural light. You may find yourself wanting to live in it. Or at least spend a lot of time there. 

Better Sleep

A lot of people associate camping with sleeping bags, tents, and uncomfortable nights of sleep. Many even associate RVs with bad nights of sleep. The mattresses never seem to feel quite right. With luxury trailers, you don’t have to worry about this. They come with the best mattresses and cushions that you could find in a trailer. So, you do not have to lose sleep on your trips. 

Temperature Control 

This is a big one. Investing in a luxury RV is not just investing in amenities that you don’t really need. It is investing in comforts you may not have known you needed. These RVs are sealed better than regular ones and have much stronger A/C and heating systems. So you can travel anywhere, anytime, without worrying about extreme temperatures. 

It Looks Great 

You have to state the obvious. Luxury travel trailers just look better. Rolling up to a campsite or any parking lot with one of these hooked to your truck will feel really good every time you do it. Because you know you have one of the best trailers out there. 


Don’t forget about the internet. Just because you are taking a trip to escape reality. It does not mean you have to go completely off the grid. Having a trailer with wifi is a game-changer to your glamping experience. There is relaxation to be had from unplugging, but if that is not your thing, stay plugged in while you camp!


Since you have wifi, you might as well bring along your favorite smart TV. Stay up to date on your favorite shows and with your favorite teams while you camp. Just don’t forget to at least take a peek outside at the stars. 

No Drop in Living Standards 

One major thing that keeps people from going glamping is, even though it’s better than camping. It is still an overall drop in quality from their daily living standards. They are afraid they will get worse sleep, not be able to make their morning coffee, or not have as comfortable of a couch to lounge on. With a luxury RV, you can kiss this worry goodbye. If you get the right RV, you won’t have to worry about this drop in standard at all. 

You Can Take Longer Trips 

Because there is no drop in standard. You will be able to take longer trips! In fact, you may not want to come back. That is why many people even choose to live in these RVs. They are comfortable, practical, and durable. 

High-Quality Materials 

Just like with most things in life, you get what you pay for. If you purchase a cheap trailer, do not expect it to last very long or be very comfortable. Luxury trailers are built with high-quality materials on the inside and out. So you can experience the comfort you want for as long as you want it. 

Better Bathrooms 

Last but certainly not least, the bathrooms are so much better. If you glamp with a trailer that does not have a bathroom, I am sure you are well acquainted with the public showers that moist campsites have. While those can be quite nice. They are nothing compared to having a luxury bathroom that you don’t have to leave your trailer for. 

Enjoy Traveling Even More 

Traveling around the country and glamping are amazing ways to relax, regroup, and get ready to re-enter society. This year, upgrade your glamping experiences by getting a luxury RV. You will be able to enjoy traveling so much more than you already do, plus you will look good while you do it.

Indigenous Climate Warriors in Times Square



(Photo by Honor the Earth)

On Tuesday September 19, 2023, the Indigenous peoples took to the frontlines of the climate crisis on Turtle Island and took over Times Square painting a giant mural with the message, “No Green Colonialism; Land Back NOW!”

This mural came the day before the UN Climate Ambition Summit, where world leaders are expected to come together and make decisions around the climate crisis.

The Indigenous communities are organizing to push back on the Biden Administration’s push toward solutions to the climate crisis that threaten the lives of Indigenous people across Turtle Island, which they call “Green Colonialism.” “For too long, Native lands and communities have borne the brunt of harm from mining and other extractive industries. As the federal government moves to support clean energy development, this cannot come at the expense of clean water or Indigenous rights. This familiar assault on Native lands and communities is another wave of colonialism, and we will not stand by and allow our lands to be sacrificed,” Krystal Two Bulls,  executive director of the national Indigenous organization Honor the Earth said in a press release.

The mining projects violate treaty rights and threaten clean water and land in places such as Thacker Pass, Oak Flat , and the Talon-Tamarak mine near the Mississippi headwaters.

We should all be fighting this fight!

Beatles Brunch at City Winery Where Strawberry Fields Lives Forever



I was taken to City Winery by Eli Marcus for the Beatles Brunch with Strawberry Fields.
This show plays every Sunday with an unlimited brunch buffet that includes coffee, tea and juice, starting at noon. A bottomless brunch cocktail package is also available and children get in free. Here tourists mingle with New Yorkers, eating scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, dried out French toast, spicy potatoes with onions and peppers, perfectly done chicken, salad and fresh fruit. What is so nice, is that everyone seems happy to to be here, to see and hear the Fab Four.

Eli Marcus, Suzanna Bowling

The show starts off without fan fare. The lights dim and four men enter, not quite looking like the originals. Tony Garofalo (John Lennon), Billy J. Ray (Paul McCartney), Ira Siegel (George Harrison), and Michael Bellusci (Ringo Starr) and their costumes and wigs have seen better days. Then the music starts. You can watch one of our video’s here.

From the early hits like “I Wanna Hold Your Hand,” “She Loves You,” “Ticket To Ride” “Eight Days A Week” and more the first act is nostalgia at it’s best. It was adorable to watch the audience, especially the young ones “Twist and Shout.”

After a break in came the Sergeant Pepper era, clothing and all. From that we got “Nowhere Man,” “My Guitar Gently Weeps,” “When I’m 64,” “Penny Lane” and songs that dig into your soul. They are done well and the Beatles live again. You can see our video here.

Then the later songs like “I Am The Walrus” and “Don’t Let Me Down” end a show that is almost two hour long of music, that is classic. I have to admit I wanted to hear “Blackbird” and “Norwegian Wood,” but what you get is a  well rounded assortment of those songs that shaped several era’s.

Billy J. Ray, Ira Siegel

Ira Siegel stands out with his guitar playing that is out of this world. I really loved all the songs he sang as well.

Michael Bellusci

Tony Garofalo

Tony Garofalo is the founder, creator and producer playing rhythm and lead guitar and singing lead vocals along with Alan LeBoeuf from the original Beatlemania playing bass guitar. Ray looks the most like the Beatle he is playing.

Strawberry Fields has been covering The Beatles for over three decades. They used to have a residency at B.B. Kings, but these days their home base is City Winery and it is definitely a great way to spend a Sunday. All four are consummate musicians and obviously have a love for what they do and that rubs off on their audience.

For a souvenir up a City Winery Strawberry Fields Rose Wine and have it signed by the cast. With its is its strawberry pink color, you get a combination of kiwi, watermelon and the taste of strawberry that lingers.

City Winery is right next to Little Island, Chelsea Market, The Highline, the Meatpacking district, Chelsea, and West Village. Everything is nearby to make a perfect outing for the whole day and this is one brunch where you definitely get your money’s worth. Click HERE for tickets

Tickets are $65.45
