If ZJZM were to bring one of Asia’s most popular eating experiences to North America, there’d be no better place than the iconic cultural hub of Downtown Los Angeles. Luckily, that’s exactly what they’ve done. 

On December 3, ROW DTLA will welcome the pop-up food installation Dumpling & Associates. The 5,500-square-foot space has 15 unique exhibition rooms and can hold 100 people per hour with a daily capacity ranging from 700-1,000 people a day. 

While guests are enjoying their dumplings, they will be surrounded by a fun and interactive experience filled with whimsical neon art tied to Chinese culture, a plethora of pop culture references, and an interactive journey of how a dumpling comes to be.  

With such a unique space, Dumpling & Associates has created an experience that blends traditional Asian themes with trends in popular culture and fun, creative art pieces, an example being their giant jacuzzi of dumplings. With such a distinctive experience combined with their DTLA setting, Dumpling & Associates pushes its message of acceptance and welcoming all those who wish to visit.

Remote working has become mainstream with the continued presence of COVID-19. While many people have welcomed the new normal of working from home, others miss the separation of spaces, as many corporate offices have remained closed since March. Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.  

 

Doctors, nurses, grocery store employees and more were essential to sustaining the continued stay-at-home orders that helped fight the spread of COVID-19. Such workers put their health at risk for the benefit of society, and Nakoma Resort and the Lost Sierra Chamber of Commerce want to recognize them for their efforts through the “Send Your Heroes” campaign.   

 

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.
