Sweet can mean two things: tastes great or stellar experience. There is a lot of sweetness in the U.S. Mountain West and western Canada, but I’ll limit this to talking about the new “Buzzed at Bernardus” experiences at Bernardus Lodge & Spa in Carmel Valley, California.
A convivial drink at the bar has long been a way for meeting attend-ees to get to know one another. For a new twist on the tradition, there’s Fleurish, the first-ever dedicated design-it-yourself flower bar. The 3,000-square-foot floral studio in LA’s tony Brentwood neighborhood is the brainchild of florist Amy Marella, whose clients include the Beverly Hills Hotel, Tiffany & Co. and Hotel Bel Air.
