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.

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.  

 

Daily life has been significantly altered by COVID-19, no matter the industry. Many are working from home, while children stay inside for online schooling. Meetings and events have been hit especially hard, since the essence of the industry is face-to-face interactions. While we continue to self-isolate, plenty of organizations have been offering webinars with insights on how to handle the pandemic—watching webinars is a great way to use that extra time you might have used for your commute to learn something useful.

 

As the spread of the novel coronavirus continues to put immense pressure on the U.S. health care system and the people who keep it running, the American Hotel and Lodging Association is working to connect hotels with health workers who are struggling to find housing.
