Jetset Report: Delano's New Eateries and Fun Outdoor Products

It’s Electric 

Pedrego

Start peddling but skip the sweating with Pedego’s City Commuter electric bike. We think this sleek ride is cool for every jetsetter who is either touring the town or traveling to the workplace. Made for city streets, City Commuter comes complete with an LCD display that shows speed, ride time, odometer, trip distance, pedal assist level and battery power. Note: The battery on the bike must be charged, but it amps up like a laptop and only takes just three hours to reach full power — you can even charge it at the office or in your hotel room. The City Commuter works for all levels of riders, as it requires no pedaling, and, with five levels of pedal assistance, you can reach 20 mph (vroom!). You can also turn off the pedal assist completely and enjoy it as a regular bicycle.

Glamping (glamorous camping) is a popular new getaway option, and we love the idea of bringing this hip vacation closer to home. Now you can get your own glamp-ready cottage for any large outdoor space. Rainier Industries out of Seattle, WA, sells two styles of cottages, the Denali and Lakedale. The Lakedale version could be described as more of the “safari” style cottage with screen windows, a privacy flap and tent door. We think kids will absolutely love this option, just add bunk beds for the ultimate experience. The Denali is a bit more industrial with its glass windows and a door (nice for cooler locations). As for installation, the only thing customers will have to worry about is building a campfire, since Rainier offers installation options across the globe. 

Vegas Vibes

Jetsetters should always know of the “it” places at every luxe destination. That’s where Rivea restaurant and Skyfall Lounge at the Delano Las Vegas come in. These hotspots open this month on the 64th floor of the hotel and they'll have awe-inspiring views of the Strip along with buzz-worthy food and drink. Acclaimed Chef Alain Ducasse will be creating the cuisine — Rivea will be Mediterranean inspired with posh pizzas and an octopus salad, while craft beer and handcrafted cocktails are on the menu at Skyfall Lounge. Visitors should take in the view but also admire touches like the lighted “wave wall” made from hundreds of glass squares that mimic the Mediterranean Sea and the hand-blown chandelier made in Italy. 

Trendy Toiletries

Squeeze Pods

We know few things upset frequent flyers more than spilt toiletries in a carry-on luggage bag (leather should never smell like sunscreen). However, the new Squeeze Pod offers a foolproof way to pack your shampoo, lotion and even hair gel without a single leak. These pods are lightweight, TSA compliant, all natural and vegan. We recently took them on a domestic flight without an incident, and we can vouch that they were easy to open in a pinch, like when we needed some hand sanitizer directly after the security checkpoint. The shampoo and conditioner are sulfate free, which we appreciated. It left our hair feeling hydrated but not greasy. We even found ourselves taking them out of our luggage and stuffing them in our pockets for some on-the-go refreshment.
