Ground broke on Dinner in the Sky Las Vegas yesterday, and it plans to officially open in late summer. The experience will start at $290 per person, including a three-course meal with wine pairings and a souvenir photo. Eight nightly seatings that last about an hour, including the ascent and descent, are planned. Let's hope nobody loses their lunch in the middle of the ride - or has to get up to use the bathroom.
"My husband thought it would be romantic to take me to dinner overlooking Vegas at a height of over 150 feet. What he didn't know is that I would completely freak out and be terrified when I saw what we were going to do ... So here I was terrified in the beginning and once we got going I realized it really wasn't going to be bad at all. In fact, I really enjoyed myself ... Only one person was super terrified the entire length of the dinner." - Yelp user Lauren H.
Los Angeles-based photographer Dan Douglas sent us this gorgeous video he shot while visiting Haleakalā Volcano in Hawaii. According to Douglas, he set out to document what many people call "the most beautiful sunrise in the world." Using four different cameras, he captured 5,000 images and stitched them together.
Incase you're curious about Haleakalā, the volcano forms more than 75 percent of the island Māui, and is so large all of Manhattan could fit inside it, and in Hawaiian, the name means "house of the sun." If anyone has seen a sunrise they consider to be more beautiful, I'd love to hear where it was. And if you want to make the journey to take this pre-dawn pilgrimage yourself, our resident Hawaiian Kyle Ellison has some tips on hidden gems on the islands.
