New York Announces New Comedy Festival

Bloomberg introducing New York Comedy Festival
NYC Mayor Michael Bloomber tries his hand at stand-up comedy
during the press conference. Consensus: Don't quit your day job

The comedy club Caroline's on Broadway and tourism promotions non-profit NYC & Company announced yesterday the first annual New York Comedy Festival, a week-long series of performances by top national comedians at theatres and clubs around the city, this November 9-13. Give us a call (888 824-9638), we'd be happy to arrange a package for out-of-towners looking to drop by for a good laugh.

So far, we haven't found a web page specifically promoting the festival, though we're sure one's on the way. Meanwhile, here is the City's official press release, and for a real laugh (no, not really), check out the online video of Bloomberg's press conference, where he tries his hand at stand-up, somehow not realizing what a tough crowd the press corp is.

Follow Your Stomach Around the World

One of the things I enjoy most about travel is eating, without a doubt. I'm sure the world would be a harmonious place if we all just ate each other's grandmother's cooking. In fact, in 2004, BizNetTravel plans to introduce some special gourmet travel trips. In the meantime, here's a nice travel feature from the Seattle Times about how to let your taste buds be your guide on travels abroad.

The New Face of Cruises: Younger, Cheaper, More Active

What would you guess is the average age of cruise vacation takers? Sixty? Well, 15 years ago you would have been right. Today it's 52, and 47% are under age 40. Forbes has a good article describing the changes the cruise industry has undergone to appeal to a younger demographic, including lower-priced packages and more active events like rock-climbing, rollerblading and cooking classes instead of shuffleboard, bingo and dance lessons. The article reviews some of the better cruise trips available on the market today and features a slide show of photos.
