Mandarin Oriental Munich reopens after renovation

Travellers visiting Germany can once again consider the Mandarin Oriental Munich in their travel plans as the historic hotel has reopened to guests after a massive restoration project.

Following a similar restoration of the hotel’s public areas, the Mandarin Oriental Munich has now completed its biggest restoration project to date, with each of its 45 guest rooms and suites having been upgraded.

As part of the new design, all single-use plastic items in rooms throughout Munich’s smallest five-star hotel have been replaced with sustainable alternatives.

“We are proud to be one of the first hotels in Germany to have replaced all single-use plastic items in our rooms and bathrooms with sustainable alternatives that we hope our guests will appreciate,” said the hotel’s general manager, Dominik G Reiner.

An EF-3 Tornado Destroyed It In 2019, Today A Dallas Home Depot Store Reopens

DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – The Home Depot store on Forest Lane in Dallas will reopen October 8, nearly a year after being ripped apart by a powerful tornado.

It was on October 20, 2019 when an EF-3 tornado swept through North Dallas, causing part of the store to collapse. On that one day there were 10 tornadoes — in Dallas, Garland and Richardson — that caused some $2 billion in damage to homes and businesses.

Today customers at the North Dallas location were happy to have their neighborhood home improvement store back open for business.

Customer Frank Jeffreys said, “It’s good to see them back smiling again, because it was such a hard time for them. I know it was, because it was pretty devastating when it [tornado] came through.”

What Moon Dog World will look like once it reopens

Moon Dog World celebrates its first birthday on October 4 in lockdown, but the team at Moon Dog have used their creativity to bring the playful pub experience to us at home. 

While we can’t laze by the bright blue lagoon with an ice-cold pot of Lagoona Matata Sour Ale in hand, we can instead opt to enjoy a series of their beers at home. Play bartender with your housemate, pop one of Moon Dog’s bar mats onto your dining table and crack open a variety of their tinnies which come in the Pub in a Box.

Complete the experience with some of Moon Dog’s “drinking food” and order pork or tofu bao, buttermilk fried chicken ribs, buffalo cauliflower, a chicken or eggplant parma and crinkle-cut chips via Mr Yum.

“One of the biggest things that our team came up with was the Spring Box, and that comes with some

Sir John Soane’s Museum reopens to public

In the basement kitchen of Sir John Soane’s Museum in Lincoln’s Inn Fields – which reopens this week – there’s a mummified whippet half stuck into a bread roll. It’s not an insight into the domestic catering arrangements of one of England’s greatest architects. It’s part of a show called ‘Degrees of Truth’ by artist duo Langlands & Bell. Their works are scattered throughout the house, which now has a one-way system in place. The exhibition closed along with the museum back in March. Langlands & Bell found the grisly dried-out pooch on a stall in Brick Lane market and incorporated it into their work. You sort of picture the dog alive and in the house, snoozing in front of the range. Then you realise that this connection is momentary – the dog and the house have interacted for the first and only time in their respective histories.

COLUMBIA, S.C. — The announcement hit social media around 10 p.m. Monday, Sept. 28 — Ricky Mollohan has closed Solstice Kitchen in northeast Columbia.

Mollohan, who can be outspoken on social media, said in the Solstice Facebook post that money became the main issue. He had closed both Solstice and Mr Friendly’s restaurants in mid-March, as per Gov. Henry McMaster’s orders in an effort to stop the spread of COVID-19. 

WLTX’s Whitney Sullivan and I had interviewed Mollohan on March 17 at Mr. Friendly’s in Five Points. It was supposed to be the restaurant’s 25th anniversary but instead marked the last week of operation — until today. More on that in a minute.

The decision to shutter Solstice was not an easy one. Mollohan had applied for Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) funding from the
