This season, fans are set to have their dreams come true with an overnight stay in the original Home Alone house. While the McCallisters are away on their annual trip (all of them but the pet tarantula, this time), four guests will get the opportunity to relive their favorite scenes from the holiday classic and let their inner eight-year-olds run free for the evening without the interruption of pesky intruders.

Big brother Buzz McCallister will join thousands of Hosts on Airbnb by opening the doors to his family’s Chicago home as the ultimate gift this month. Following the release of Home Sweet Home Alone, the all-new holiday film now streaming on Disney+, this Airbnb stay offers a trip down memory lane and an unforgettable way to celebrate the holidays.

“You may not remember me as particularly accommodating,” says Buzz, “but I’ve grown up, and I’d be happy to share my family home – my pizza, even – with you this holiday season. Just try not to let my tarantula, Axl, loose this time.”

Buzz will host a one-night stay for up to four guests at the McCallister residence on December 12 for only $25.

During their stay, guests will enjoy:

– A cozy holiday scene with twinkling lights and a perfectly trimmed tree in celebration of the season.

– Booby traps galore (but don’t worry – you’ll be setting them, not sidestepping them!).

– Surprisingly searing splashes of aftershave and ample opportunity to scream into the mirror.

Cobra Kai Season 4 Posters Released

The highly anticipated fourth season of Netflix’s Cobra Kai series got some new artwork today.

Taking to social media, the official Cobra Kai Twitter account released two new posters, one of which is a more traditional advertisement for the series, while the other acts as a poster for the 51st Annual All Valley Karate Championship. 

The second poster teases various events happening through December, all culminating in the “tournament” beginning on December 31, the same day the season premieres.

Season 4 of Cobra Kai will most likely deal with the aftermath of the third season’s action-packed finale, where fans last saw Johnny Lawrence and Daniel LaRusso finally teaming up with each other in order to take down John Kreese at the All Valley Karate Tournament. However, as they formed their new alliance, it looks like Kreese has also enlisted his old friend to help him defeat Johnny and Daniel. The new season will also introduce new characters in the form of Dallas Dupree Young as Kenny and Oona O’Brien as Devon.

In Cobra Kai, Ralph Macchio and William Zabka revisit their star-making roles from the iconic film franchise, The Karate Kid. The epic adversaries return to the dojo, thirty years after the events of the 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament. A down-and-out Johnny Lawrence (Zabka) seeks redemption by reopening the infamous Cobra Kai karate dojo, reigniting his rivalry with a now-successful Daniel LaRusso (Macchio), who has been struggling to maintain balance in his life without the guidance of his mentor, Mr. Miyagi.

Joining Macchio and Zabka are Xolo Maridueña as Miguel Diaz, Tanner Buchanan as Robby Keene, Mary Mouser as Samantha LaRusso, Peyton List as Tory Nichol, Courtney Henggeler as Amanda LaRusso, Vanessa Rubio as Carmen Diaz, Jacob Bertrand as Hawk, Gianni Decenzo as Demetri, and Martin Kove as John Kreese.

Cobra Kai is written and executive produced by Heald, Hurwitz, and Hayden Schlossberg via their Counterbalance Entertainment banner. Executive producers are Ralph Macchio, William Zabka, Will Smith, James Lassiter, and Caleeb Pinkett for Overbrook Entertainment, along with Susan Ekins in association with Sony Pictures Television.

Boost Revenues In 2021 With Hotel Lobby Remodelling Hacks Like Using Vintage Model Car Kits

The first impression of a hotel is created in the lobby. Visitors can soak in the ambience and get an idea of the expected hospitality. It helps your facility stand out from its competitors. It can also raise the spirit of travelers as they may still be worried about the spread of covid-19. A lobby can play a key role in the overall success of the hotel industry as the world recovers from the pandemic. A truly impressive one will be an inviting multifunctional space with cafés and snack bars, comfortable furniture, easy access to hotel amenities and inspirational décor. But you do not have to resort to unrealistic and costly changes to spruce up the space. 

One of the first things guests notice is art pieces. You can add revolutionary vintage model car kits from Premier Car Models as these are attention grabbers and come with stunning display cases. Here are a few other ways to create a memorable experience for your guests. 

The Flooring Facelift

Pick the ideal material depending upon the acoustics, foot traffic, maintenance and budget. Keep the aesthetics, safety, existing architecture, and installation in mind. You can add floor lamps and large-scale vintage car model kits to add a huge impact. It is also a good idea to soundproof the floor to reduce the noise levels. Choose a design from either industrial or modern that will best compliment the rest of the hotel. Natural stone, porcelain tile, luxury vinyl tile or carpeting would be perfect choices. 

New Art Works 

This is an ideal way to add style and oomph to the décor. Place classic car model kits, vintage canvas painting, artistic metal plates, timeless clocks, and floor-to-ceiling luxurious golden strips. You can also consider deco rugs and plush runners. Pick bright and bold designs and textures to add ultimate charm to the lobby. You can easily rotate and rearrange them to bring a fresh change to the appearance from time to time. 

Redo The Lighting 

You have to count on several factors before illuminating your space. Measure your space, keep the decorative fixtures in mind, make sure it matches your aesthetics and consider oversized lights. Ensure a sense of visual comfort along with sophistication and extravagance. Set the tone. Pick a focal point and add rustic, minimalist or industrial chandeliers. Accentuate the vintage car model kit and other artworks with the right lighting to grab visitor attention. 

Add Some Greenery 

Houseplants work the best for indoor lobbies. Think of decorative flowerpots. Consider palm trees in the case of a courtyard. You can also add creepers to boost the appeal. This will create a warm and welcoming natural vibe. Plants are also known to reduce pollutants and minimize stress levels. Floral arrangements would be a pleasant addition too. 

Old model car kits can give the guests to do while they relax in the lobby. Add some optical illusions, a mini library and a bistro to keep them from getting bored. 

Miller High Life Gingerbread Dive Bar

Miller High Life is helping fans celebrate the holidays with their favorite home away from home – in gingerbread form.

The Champagne of Beers is combining a holiday tradition – gingerbread houses – with Miller High Life’s natural environment: a dive bar.

 

“There’s no better place to enjoy The Champagne of Beers than a dive bar, and no better time to celebrate the simple moments that make life special than the holidays,” says Tim Christmann, associate marketing manager for Miller High Life. “As people bring the dive bar experience home, we can’t wait to see how they’ll customize their gingerbread kits.”

The kits combine the sugary fun of building a gingerbread house with the sticky floors of a dive bar – literally. They come with Vermont maple syrup that can be poured over the bar’s floor. Also included: mini vintage High Life wall art and faux neon signs made from sugar, peppermint barstools, a jukebox, an edible pool table with pretzel stick cues and candied pool balls, and even a gingerbread bartender and regulars infused with Miller High Life.

 

The limited-quantity kits will be available for $50 on Miller High Life’s online store beginning Monday, December 6.
