You Go, Girls: Reality TV mainstay Lisa Vanderpump is like a fun Gwyneth Paltrow. Haughty and theatrically bitchy in that Joan Collins sort of way, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star similarly styles herself as a lifestyle guru, but it’s all about day-drinking rosé and Doberman care, not Ecuadorian fern face masks. Now she has a cocktail lounge in Las Vegas. The Vanderpump Cocktail Garden opened this past spring at Caesars Palace. Cosmos will be drank.

The Anti-Staycay: You’ll find our summer staycation guide later in this issue, but If you’re hell-bent on something in its prime (read: a place where summer is actually high season), Pronghorn, a resort in trendy Bend, Oregon, is offering two-night packages for the golf-minded, including one that features four rounds on its two championship courses. Rates start at $690/night in June.

Mexico Addendum: If you salivated over our Mexico travel feature in May, add this to your hopper: Maya Ka’an, the name for a stretch of communities on the Mayan peninsula and the eco-friendly experiences – e.g. nighttime bike rides through the jungle – therein. It may out-Tulum Tulum.
