Show Me the Way to the Next Whisky Bar

Amidst the glitz, glam and pinball jingles of Macau’s latest casino resort venture, a delectable sip of old-world charm has been dropped in the form of the world’s first Macallan Whisky Bar. Macau’s newest integrated resort, Galaxy Macau, has created a backwater of Caledonian calm whose hushed tones evoke the gentlemen’s clubs of yore juxtaposed within the frenetic 24/7 sights and sounds of the 2,200-room wonderland. Approximately 360 different types of whiskies make the collection one of Asia’s largest, with priceless collectables that include a 1936 Macallan as well as limited edition royal wedding bottles.

Galileo Glam

Stargazers and explorers looking for the most deluxe doodads will love Sony’s new Digital Recording Binoculars, which capture images and record videos from distances previously way out of sight. Even cooler, these peepers can record HD (and even 3D) videos. Both the DEV-3 and the DEV-5 models can capture still 7.1 mega pixel images and record full 1920x1080 HD and 3D video for playback on most 3D TVs.

Diamond Digital

Adding Facebook friends or following Twitter feeds just seems better when it’s done with diamonds. We say the iPhone4 Lady Blanche is a must for all of your tech-savvy, glamorous gals. Three independent Swiss clocks are found on the rear panel of the phone, indicating the time in New York, Paris and Moscow. Three decorative pearl dials are bedazzled with white diamonds or Swarovski crystals. Made by the Gresso Company, the iPhone4 Lady Blanche is highlighted by the soft glow of natural Antillian mother-of-pearl La burgaudine. This $30,000 toy is not for your ordinary conversation.

Upping the Auto Ante

A far cry from the complimentary resort golf cart, select Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts properties are inviting guests to cruise in style. A fleet of Mercedes-Benz vehicles is now available for exclusive use by guests of Four Seasons Resort Jackson Hole, Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North and Four Seasons Resort Vail. Note: The cars and SUVs are available on a first come, first served basis, gas included. Chic speedsters can choose from a bevy of year-round, outdoor entertainment (think a photo safari with a trained biologist, hunting for mushrooms, stargazing, brook-side picnics and more).
