This week, Superman makes his way back to the big screen in Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel”, a much needed reboot of the Superman story for the big screen. If you’re a frequent reader of the Movoto blog, you’ll know they were champing at the bit to find a way to tie the film into real estate. Thankfully they have a Superman expert on the team.
Check out the inforgraphic from Movoto below:
A cool semi annual celestial event made popular by braniac Neil deGrasse Tyson is commonly referred to as Manhattenhenge. For those of you not familiar with the event, the same planetary tilt that determines the seasons also dictates exactly where the sun will go down each evening — and because of the way that Manhattan’s dominant street grid is laid out, killer sunsets are potentially visible from some of the borough’s best-known east-west streets in late May and mid-July. New Yorkers were wowed on Wednesday night by a sunset that was perfectly framed by skyscrapers.
Veteran front desk agent Jacob Tomsky reveals some of the best-kept secrets of the hotel industry.
You don’t have to pay for the minibar (part one)
The minibar is checked (maybe) once a day by a slow-moving gentleman or lady pushing a cart of snacks. You might never even see a minibar attendant. They are like mole people. They peer into the confusion of bottles and bags, looking for something to be replaced, looking for something that is no longer there. They replace it and put a mark on their room chart. These marks are then, at some point in the future, delivered to another fallible human who manually inputs them onto a guest account. Can anyone see the margin for error in this process? Because it’s HUGE.
Maybe the attendant failed to notice the cashews were consumed Monday but catches it on Tuesday and the charge is applied to your bill on Wednesday, even though you just checked in five minutes ago. Even before a guest can manage to get through half of the “I never had these items” sentence, I have already removed the charges and am now simply waiting for them to wrap up their overly zealous denial, so we can both move on with our lives. And this is why, essentially, you are able to eat and drink everything for free.
Never, ever, will the hotel accuse you of lying. That is the absolute last stance hotel management wants to take. You think a respectable hotelier wants to go through your garbage looking for spent M&M’s wrappers?
This Is The Most Epic Brand Meltdown On Facebook Ever
The two owners of Amy’s Baking Company Bakery Boutique & Bistro took over the restaurant’s Facebook page Monday night to fight unruly commenters, and wow, was it embarrassing.

Apparently, Monday night, owners Samy and Amy Bouzaglo took to the restaurant’s Facebook to defend themselves against nasty comments from users.
A recent blog post from the Sesame Street Workshop answers a question that many have wondered for years, how did Sesame Street get it’s name:
There is a scene in the promo film for Sesame Street where ad-men type Muppets in business suits meet around a large conference table debating potential names for the show. Ridiculous titles are suggested like the Two and Two Ain’t Five Show and the Itty-Bitty, Farm-and-City, Witty-Ditty, Nitty-Gritty, Dog-and-Kitty, Pretty-Little-Kiddie Show. Ralph the Dog fires the entire group of Muppets and Kermit the Frog eventually comes up with the name Sesame Street. “You know, like ‘Open Sesame.’ It kind of gives the idea of a street where neat stuff happens,” he suggests.
