Every detail of the Houston fine-dining restaurant March has been crafted with careful consideration. From the exit signs to the bathroom scents, every feature is perfectly crafted to make the restaurant a perfect experience that transports one to the Mediterranean. June Rodil, the master sommelier and partner at the restaurant, has been integral in procuring certain pieces and adding the ‘oomph’ factor. Read on to know about all the quirky, different ways the restaurant has managed to capture the people!
A woven tapestry by Bueno Aires artist Alexandra Kehayoglou dominates the space in the private dining room of March. A show stopper through and through, it is meant to feel like a place where the Mediterranean landscape meets Texas agriculture. It also works as a sound absorber!
The Exit Signs
Rodil worked with the design studio team at Studio Robert McKinley to procure custom exit signs, which emulate vintage signs. Rodil also got them retrofitted to meet the safety requirements, and now these are one of the best features of March!
The Bathroom Scents
The scents chosen by Rodil for the bathrooms are changed biannually along with the menu. These changes reflect a different region of the Mediterranean every time! So far, these scents have been made by perfumer Coqui Coqui.
The Lonely Maître D’
A painting by Oliver Jeffers, it features a maître d’ wearing an old school tux and holding a candle, adrift at sea. The words ‘For All We Know’ float on the water, while the constellations twinkle in the night sky.
The Dancing Ladies
Rodil has hunted for vintage Austrian Bimini glasswares, like the dancing ladies — which are rare, delicate blown-glass figures of ladies dancing on the stem!
If you have ever been to one of the many Six Flags theme parks in the United States, Mexico, or Canada, you’ll know that a trip to Six Flags is a day full of fun, laughter, and entertainment — something that many of us have been lacking recently. In light of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many tourist activities and attractions have been closed across the globe, and Six Flags is no different. They have temporarily closed all of their parks, but you’ll soon be able to go on a drive-thru safari at their New Jersey location.
Closing Up Shop
Like many companies, organizations, and attractions across the world, Six Flags Great Adventure in New Jersey decided to close up shop as the ongoing pandemic raged across the globe. This was for the safety of their staff and the general public, but they want to soon start reopening the park using a phased method to promote social distancing. The first step in this phase will be opening soon, and it involves an epic safari that you can take in your own car.
Going Back to Basics
If you have ever been to Six Flags Great Adventure, you may be familiar with the popular attraction, Safari Off-Road Adventure. When this experience first opened in 1974, it was opened as a self-drive experience to allow visitors to make their own way around the 350-acre reserve and check out the 1,200 wild animals as a family unit. However, that changed in 2013 when Six Flags decided to make it a guided tour and take families around in large groups. Now, they are going back to basics and changing it back to a self-drive tour. This is to provide families with entertainment without them needing to get out of the car, and we think it’s an awesome idea.
If you want to check this drive-thru safari out for yourself, you’ll need to book online in advance.
