What is the most important thing to look for in a night away? Is it luxury beds? Maybe an exotic locale? Or maybe you just look for a really nice bath close by.


1 Hotel in Brooklyn has what's being called the best bath in New York City. The Riverhouse Suite's bathroom is the stuff of dreams. While the 2000 sq ft. room itself is lovely, the bathroom caught the eye of writer Brennan Kilbane.

1 Hotel is rather proud of this bathroom.



With a tub carved out of a single block of granite, filtered water pumped in piping hot, and a floor to ceiling window overlooking the so-called Greatest City in the World, it's easy to see why Kilbane would gush over it.

All for the low, low price of $7000 a night.







It's certainly not for everyone. In fact, with that price, one could argue it's only for a very specific group of people. The luxury of the bath still makes it difficult to justify the premium pricing.

New York City is known for its premium pricing. People will split rent in an apartment that would cost a third of its pricing anywhere else. It is a city of scarce real estate and costs reflect that.

Even with all that in mind, who is this for? If you have the money to pay $7000 a night, wouldn't you already have a personal luxury bath? And if you can't afford it, why tease yourself with the possibility.

Maybe we need to leave New York alone for a while.






If you think the price is absolutely worth it, you can check out the going rates here. For the rest of us, we'll find a staycation a little more in our budget.

Why do all of our best ideas happen when under the influence? Or is that a thought we just believe to be true?

I will say some of my best ideas spring forth with a nip of Grey Goose, but all the ideas at the bottom of the bottle never seem to pan out.

I can't be alone here.

I know that there has to be people who acted upon ideas born when smoking the Mary J. (do the kids say that anymore?) that when put into action thought... "Well that was a mistake."

Or are we tapping into the brilliant and it just needs a little nurturing? So many thoughts. Let's discuss... sober.

You can deduce plenty about people just from the things they have in their home.

Not that I rummage through people's homes... much. But there are certain items that are present or missing that let you know there may be trouble in some areas of a person's life.

Many people complain about adulting because they weren't properly taught how to be responsible.

You, know, like paying the bills, filing for taxes, or just getting by on a day-to-day basis without relying on parents.

But people not knowing some very basic skills in life like, say, using a vacuum cleaner or operating a washing machine is on a whole other level.

A first date can be very exciting, but there's a lot riding on the initial romantic encounter.

Unlike in previous generations, many people meet their potential suitors through various online apps, where users have control over their perception.

Once a rapport is established, it's on to meet up in person. Once the profile pic matches expectations, most previous concerns go by the wayside and the evening can be smooth sailing.

Until it isn't.
