At the lodge at the Woodloch, set in the pocono mountains of northeast pennsylvania, guests are more than welcome to break the rules. established in June 2006 and about 90 miles from new York city, the lodge at the Woodloch is the ideal luxury spa destination, not to mention a triple threat, offering 40,000 square feet of mind, body and spirit rejuvenation, set on 150 wooded acres, along with a 15-acre private lake. “it’s a haven for relaxation,” said Rory o’fee, marketing director for the spa destination. He adds that the resort is an excellent alternative to the oftencrowded Hamptons, where no luxury spa resort exists.

from a variety of veranda rooms and suites offering pristine views to 27 treatment rooms that include massage, facial as well as couples’ and combination treatment suites, each guest is paired with a personal concierge to customize their stay. guests can choose from fitness retreats that include pilates and boating, including the use

Welcome to Miami

rom the early days of frank sinatra and a young elvis presley, miami has long seduced the legends of the entertainment world. more than 60 years later, glossy magazines still regale the world with tales (and photos) of the elite frolicking on the city’s beaches. in the center of it all? Beacon Hotel miami. located in the city’s famed ocean drive, Beacon boasts famous names of its own, including athletes, Hollywood celebrities and music moguls. erected in 1937 during the Art deco era of colorfully eclectic design, Beacon received a $2.5 million upgrade between 2004 and 2009, leaving the hotel beautifully modern while retaining its art deco flair. for the 15,000 to 20,000 visitors the Beacon accommodates every

After, guests can enjoy a delicious lunch or dinner without ever leaving the hotel at the swanky place Restaurant where they can feast on roasted lamb with sautéed potatoes and asparagus, ($43)

deliciously paired with Bandol, a powerful french red wine ($36). perhaps one of the greatest allures of Beacon is its proximity to Art Basel, one of the most prestigious art shows with a reputation spanning 41 years. originating in europe and combining internationally

known art galleries, the event also features special exhibitions as well as events in music, film, architecture and design. Attracting art collectors, critics and all-around art enthusiasts, Art Basel is miami’s way of keeping a little of the Art deco era and of course, the Beacon intact.

summer season, guests can choose from deluxe double rooms, Vip suites, or accommodations with relaxing ocean front views (up to $334) all complete with marble floors, mini bars, flat panel lcd tVs and complimentary breakfasts. Besides the hotel’s prime location, Beacon prides itself on its exceptional customer service. the bilingual staff (english and spanish) can arrange a limo service to miami’s trendiest nightclubs and designer boutiques, including mansion and liV, which has seen the likes of nHl star, mike fisher as well as Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries. the limo can T-8

binocular is an indispensible tool when traveling. make sure to take one along so you won’t miss nature’s beauty all around us. High-quality, yet very affordable binoculars are available from oberwerk. never heard of them? oberwerk binoculars were introduced to the market in 1999 by Kevin Busarow, an amateur astronomer with a strong preference for using both eyes when viewing the night sky. the first oberwerk binoculars were high-powered giants with 4” objective lenses, primarily meant for astronomical observation. these quickly became popular in the amateur astronomy market, and a number of other astronomyoriented models were soon introduced. oberwerk T-10

oberwerks
developed a reputation for producing high-quality instruments at very affordable prices. it didn’t take long for non-astronomers to discover that these giant binoculars were also the perfect accessory for the home-with-a-view, and this market continues to be one of oberwerk’s largest percentage of sales. in the last 10 years, the product line has grown to about 30 different binoculars and binocular accessories covering all types of uses, from the giant tripodmounted models for astronomy and long-range observation, to smaller hand-holdable binoculars for bird-watching, travel, and sporting events.
observer.com | the new york observer

from the beginning, and to this day, every oberwerk binocular is individually tested and aligned by Kevin Busarow at oberwerk’s facility at the Russ Research center in dayton, ohio. Kevin has personally tested and tuned more than 15,000 binoculars, making him one of the most experienced binocular technicians in the world. His testing involves numerous visual and mechanical checks, with a special emphasis on “collimation”, which refers to a binocular’s alignment. oberwerk’s model Bt-100 and Bt-100-45 binocular telescopes are capable of extreme magnifications (over 100x). At these magnifications, they must be as perfectlyaligned as mechanically possible, in order to provide well-merged images with no eyestrain, regardless of inter-pupil distance setting. the same level of precision alignment required by their high-magnification binocular telescopes is applied to the entire product line,
