Colorful celebration

Miami hosted its annual art festival called Art Basel, one of fall’s most anticipated events. Works of art from more than 250 galleries around the world were exhibited at the event. One piece of art that is becoming the talk of the town is the artwork involving ‘Cheetle’ – Cheetos dust left on your fingers after eating the Frito-Lay snack.

The Cheetos brand has teamed up with an artist called Lefty Out There to create an exhibit hosted on a luxury yacht with food, cocktails and live DJs inspired by the Cheetos. The exhibition, Yacht The Basel: The Art of Cheetle, is slated to open today in a mega yacht docked in downtown Miami. There is no entrance fee but the after-party is by invitation only. A spokesperson for Frito-Lay said Food and wine, “Now we’re thrilled to see how Cheetle – the orange dust our fans wear proudly at their fingertips – comes to life at Art Basel through the incredibly talented work of Lefty Out There’s.”

Two years ago, at Miami Art Basel, an artist stuck a regular banana on a white wall and sold each one for around $ 120,000. Artist Maurizio Cattelan is known for his absurd works. Other displays at the event include sculptures, immersive art installations (including a multisensory experience celebrating the perfume’s 100th anniversary, Chanel No 5), paintings, other mixed-use artwork, and even a film screening. floating.

Strange tradition

Peanut Butter and Jelly were pardoned by the President of the United States of America, Joe Biden. They are two white turkeys raised on a farm in Jasper, Indiana, and selected by the White House to participate in the annual Turkey Pardon.

Biden recently underwent a routine colonoscopy procedure. Meanwhile, presidential authority has been transferred to Vice President Kamala Harris. A woman became president for the first time in American history. After the procedure, Biden performed the turkey’s forgiveness ceremony. The day before, the White House Twitter account posted a video of the two turkeys on a luxurious bed at the Willard Hotel. Their names were reportedly chosen from a list of nominations submitted by schoolchildren.

Presidential turkey pardon dates back to the days of John F Kennedy. It’s a fun and frivolous event. Two presidents, Harry S Truman and Dwight D Eisenhower, are said to have eaten the birds after pardoning them. The Washington Post Calls it “America’s dumbest tradition” for obvious reasons.

Time for fun

Americans celebrated Thanksgiving on Thursday, November 25. The country was grappling with the pandemic last year and most families remained separated. This time, vaccinations opened up the possibility of reuniting but the increase in the number of Covid-19 cases was still weighing on people’s minds when deciding how to celebrate the holiday.

While health officials last year begged Americans not to celebrate Thanksgiving with someone outside the home, this year’s post focused on vaccination, booster, testing and being outdoors as much as possible. It’s one of the busiest travel weekends of the year and the Transportation Security Administration is expected to screen as many people as it did in 2019.

Macy’s 95th Thanksgiving Parade was held in New York City with 28 floats, 15 giant balloons and approximately 4,500 volunteers, and was seen by over 25 million people on television. The parade also took place last year, but without spectators in the streets.

Several tanks represented public figures, brands, icons and even travel destinations. There was a 60-foot-long alligator tank promoted by the Louisiana Tourist Board. It was also the first time that a Star Wars character – Baby Yoda from The Mandalorian – has its own float.

The 2.5 mile route runs along Central Park West and ends at Macy’s flagship store in Herald Square. Some of the balloons from years gone by include Astronaut Snoopy, Pillsbury Doughboy, Chase de Paw PatrolPapa Smurf The Smurfs, Sonic the Hedgehog and SpongeBob SquarePants.
