The World This Weekend: Travel And Leisure’s Global Bazaar

New York City isn’t lacking in worldwide influences. Walk through Times Square on a busy day (any day, that is), and you’ll be able to pick up snippets of perhaps a few dozen languages. Restaurants proffer goods from every part of the globe, and there are neighborhoods for many ethnic groups, far more than simply Little Italy or Chinatown. Spread out throughout the five burroughs lay an incredible wealth of culture, from African dance to Russian tea rooms.

And this weekend, the second annual Travel + Leisure Global Bazaar pulls it all together, into the beautiful Lexington Armory. Starting this evening for a sold-out event from 8-11PM, you can join us and  thousands of guests as we visit Shangri-La, tour Canada and Australia, and learn some merengue, all without having to actually leave Manhattan. They say the world is at your doorstep here, and this event brings that phrase to life- see the future of airplane cuisine from Delta, check out the beach bar thanks to the British Virgin Islands, and see how Patron mixologists are shaking up tequila.

Sustainable caviar? Massages? Puerto Rican zipline experience? Mayan food? Flamenco? We can’t wait. The action continues on Saturday and Sunday as well, with two session on September 29th (daytime from 1-5PM or evening from 8-11PM) as well as a more family-oriented afternoon event on the 30th from 11AM-3PM. Tickets run either $75 or $125 depending on timing, and include plenty of food and drink and live entertainment. And if you’re ready to book a trip, travel professionals will be on hand to help you get out of the city and check out the real things.

We hope to see you there!

He also served as the Content Strategy Manager for HearPlanet, a multi-platform app that has reached over a million users and has been featured in the New York Times, Hemispheres Magazine, National Geographic Adventure, Fox Business News, PC Magazine, and even Apple’s own iPhone ads. Greg has written as a restaurant critic and feature journalist for a number of national and international publications, including City Weekend Magazine, Red Egg Magazine, the Newton Daily News, Capital Change Magazine, and an arm of China Daily, Beijing Weekend. In addition, he has served as a consulting editor for the Foreign Language Press of Beijing, as well as a writer and editor for the George Washington University Hatchet, the school newspaper of his alma mater.
