Las Vegas NV: Need A Boost? REVIV at MGM Grand


One of our favorite movies is 1997’s “Vegas Vacation”. A family plays bingo at the MGM Grand Resort. Dad Griswold (Chevy Chase) has gambled away thousands of family savings dollars, and they're about to leave town totally broke. Then, in a lucky moment, they get it all back and thousands more, because a dying old man (the great Sid Caesar) gives them his winning bingo ticket. 

Current Vegas celebrants can get similar uplifts at the MGM Grand. The new service there, called REVIV, offers medical help to those who overdo (and who doesn’t?) their Vegas vacations. Staffed by certified physicans and nurses, there are various revival offerings to help party animals who do a bit too much partying.

Treatments include hydration, IVs, electrolytes, multivitamins, antioxidants and other medications. There are also relaxing spa and massage services available. Fees start at $99, and REVIV is available seven days a week from 9 a.m. to midnight. For MGM guests, in-room service is also offered. For more information, go to www.revivme.com/las-vegas

Q: Coronavirus Fear: Should I Wear Gloves While Traveling? PDF Print E-mail


I obey all the warnings about washing hands while dealing with dirty surfaces on the road and in the air. I’ll be taking a train trip next week and wonder if I should not only wash, but also put on gloves. Advice? JKH, New Amsterdam NY

A: If you have a sore or tender skin condition, to avoid infection, wear gloves. Also, with the current epidemic, no matter what your skin condition, it’s a good idea to wear tight plastic gloves when traveling, especially while using public toilets. Thoroughly wash hands and gloves as often as possible in hot, soapy water. Carry an extra pair so you’re always prepared for protection.

Fly Clean With Wipes & Never Use Aircraft Seat Pocket PDF Print E-mail


Medical experts advise you to steer clear of that little holder bag on the back of the seat in front of you. Too often, bare feet, dirty diapers, outdated food and soiled underwear are stashed in them.

It’s also a good idea to take disposable medicated tissues aboard, and before you sit down, wipe off the headrest, seatbelt buckle and tray table. Also, when you gotta go into airport and aircraft toilets, wipe off the inside handle of the doors and other surfaces. With the spread of coronavirus, it’s always wise to fly as hygienically as possible, or not fly until the problem settles down.

 
Philly PA: Eat Where Hamilton, Franklin & Adams Dined PDF Print E-mail


More than six million people annually visit Philadelphia’s Independence National Historical Park in the downtown area. When eating there in two-centuries old City Tavern, they can "be in the room where it happened” as sung in the musical, "Hamilton."

Just a short walk from Independence Hall, where America’s Founding Fathers created a new nation, is the popular restaurant. Opened in 1773, it was where members of the First Continental Congress gathered to dine and drink. Few things have changed, except dinner in 1776 was $1. Today it’s $50. www.10best.com/interests/food-travel/dine-like-its-1776-historic-city-tavern-philadelphia
