Marriott Marquis Houston

Traveling should be a great experience. What better place to have it than the center of life right in Houston? Downtown is a perfect choice for a luxurious hotel, which is why Marriott has chosen to open a new one, right here, and it will be ready by November 2016!

Houston is obviously a travel destination for most business meetings, but there are also various conventions that take place in our George R. Brown Convention Center. How is that relevant? The upcoming Marriott Marquis hotel will be connected to the Convention Center with a stunning sky bridge. Not only is the location of this hotel perfect, but the amenities that will be available are breathtaking. It features a full-service spa and fitness center, sports bar, two specialty restaurants, wine bar, cafe, and pool bar, and grill. All of this within an unbelievable building with 1,000 guest rooms and 100,000 square feet of meeting space, to meet all of your business or convention needs. Is this not enough for you? Might I add that this hotel is located right by the Discovery Green Park and in the Downtown area where there is plenty of entertainment and sports fun. There are also multiple restaurants and bars for you and your friends.

I hope that you look forward to the opening of the striking Marriott Marquis hotel here in Houston, because I know I will.

La Argentina Gelato

I imagine you are sick of seeing an abundance of ice cream and frozen yogurt shops near you. Don’t you want to try something different, something better? Well, lucky you. I just found the perfect place: La Argentina Gelato. Oh my, the things I can tell you about this store. I’ll start off with my personal experience so that you may see my thoughts.

13335744_1186846128021975_1895867993064297707_n I walk in, and it’s like love at first sight. So many different flavors and so many ways to present them. I choose two flavors, for those that want to know it was Dulce de Leche and Chocolate Bariloche, had some friendly banter with the cashier, then at last I began to eat the gelato. Let me tell you, I love ice cream and frozen yogurt, but this couldn’t compare. The texture was very creamy and the potency of the flavors were just right for my taste buds. In addition, Customer Service was superb!

 

 

 

Oh, is this not enough for you to go dashing to this place? Allow me to tell you more about this place then. This shop has a long history since 1985, but they are recently arriving in Houston and Katy. All of their flavors are made out of 100% natural ingredients, so no strange chemicals! 32 different flavors and five different ways to present them, so there is something for everyone. Not only do they offer gelato, but they also offer fresh coffee and Sandwiches de Miga (This is a traditional Argentinian meal, which I would also recommend you try out).

This all being said, I hope you will drop by this place sometime. Especially in the Summer heat, 100% handmade gelato is perfect for this weather!

Tramontana: Its name comes from the latin, and means beyond the mountains. This cold wind takes place in the northeast of the Iberian peninsula, between the Balearic Islands and Catalonia, and its speed increases in the southwestern of the French Massif Central and the Pyrenees. It can reach gusts of up to 200 kilometers per hour.

Tramontana-XTR-5Inspired by this northern wind, this vehicle, designed by a Spanish firm, not only stands out for its refined appearance and its top speed (325 km / h) but for what it hides in its entrails. It was designed to increase adrenaline, accelerate heartbeats, and blow your senses. Driving a Tramontana is a great and unique experience.

 

A.D. Tramontana is a European company, founded in 2005 with the aim to design and manufacture exotic cars of superior quality. Tramontana’s business concept is High Quality and Handcrafted Exclusivity, a fusion of craftsmanship and cutting-edge technology. The company is based out of Costa Brava, north of Barcelona Spain. The combination of Formula 1 racing parts and a design reminiscent of that of a jet fighter culminated in the creation of the Tramontana supercar.


2
This supercar has surpassed the most demanding technical tests, and prior to its recent launch to the market, it fulfilled all the European certification requirements to quality for driving in public roads.

Each creation that leaves the factory is different and unique; the level of customization has no boundaries. Each creation is a masterpiece. A wild force of the nature the essence of which we are the spirit that move us. Art expresses much more than emotion, and Tramontana does it too.

Automotive history has never seen a street sports car so similar to a F1. Tramontana’s aim is to produce a car that brings back the spirit of the magnificent legacy of the Catalan industry: unique vehicles, which are often handmade by expert hands and show a combination of advanced techniques and yesteryear procedures.

tramontana 1Moreover, it has an excellent level of production and development. The Tramontana is a unique car. Each Tramontana is different and unique, much more than a simple vehicle. It feels as if it were the artist’s most valuable jewel or finest piece of art.

Its limited production turns each single vehicle into something entirely custom-made, in the most exclusive way.

Local company (Texas) has partnered with A.D. Tramontana in order to bring this astonishing supercar to the state of Texas and Latin America in the search for a new market. While it is true that the Tramontana supercar is not for everyone, it is very true that it is for a very specific market. A market who values and understands the exclusivity and engineering behind this supercar.

The Tramontana supercar is available in different models and will be brought to the United States for special presentations in 2015 by Potresse and Scuderia (www.scuderiasociety.com) for the public to admire its craftsmanship which pays attention to the smallest detail.

I was born during the night of November 30th in Santiago de Chile. When I was just a little girl I came to live to Mexico city, I was a very creative child. In my early years I started to write songs, sing, write novels and immitate my mother while she was doing her makeup.

Mercedes Benz Concept GLC Coupe

Sensual coupe design. Powerful SUV presence. These are two of the guiding principles that inspire the Concept GLC Coupe and the future of Mercedes‑Benz SUVs.


2016-CONCEPT-GLC-COUPE-FUTURE-GALLERY-008-GOE-DSleek styling blends with strong character lines in this near-production study. The striking LED headlamps shape the expressive face of the Concept GLC Coupe. An elongated, sporty roofline and crouching greenhouse—along with frameless side windows and recessed door handles—underscore its coupe-like character. But make no mistake. The interplay between the high beltline, wide shoulders and 21-inch wheels conveys its muscular energy.

At the rear, four polished stainless-steel tailpipes of the exhaust system remind you of the power within. That power is delivered in the form of a 367-hp direct-injection biturbo V6 engine, paired with 9G-TRONIC nine-speed automatic transmission and 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive.

Key Highlights

  • 367-hp biturbo V6 engine delivering 384 lb-ft of torque
  • 9G-TRONIC nine-speed automatic transmission
  • 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive
  • 186.2 inches long; 63 inches tall; 78.7 inches wide; 111.4-inch wheelbase
  • 21-inch wheels
  • LED headlamps and taillamps
  • Front and rear underbody protection
  • Side running boards
  • Four-pipe stacked exhaust system

2016-CONCEPT-GLC-COUPE-FUTURE-GALLERY-004-GOE-DLook for the spirit of the Concept GLC Coupe in future Mercedes‑Benz SUV models coming soon.

The next coup Stuttgart / Shanghai. In a flowing transition, Mercedes-Benz lands the next coup: the Concept GLC Coupé is a near-production-standard study that carries the successful GLE Coupé formula over into a more compact segment. The dynamically expressive show car combines typical stylistic features of a coupé with the sensually pure design idiom of coming SUV generations.

This emotively appealing fusion is further enriched with details that are strong in character. A twin-blade radiator grille, power domes on the hood and a four-pipe exhaust system form an aesthetic contrast to the harmonious, almost organic main body section. On the other hand, elements from the rugged off-road world, such as enormous 21-inch tires, front and rear underbody protection, increased ground clearance and side running boards, are indicative of the off-road performance potential of the Concept GLC Coupé.

Gorden Wagener, Head of Design at Daimler AG, puts it in a nutshell: “With its modern and sensual design idiom, the Concept GLC Coupé gives a foretaste of future SUV models from Mercedes-Benz. At the same time, it embraces the typical values of tradition-steeped Mercedes-Benz coupés”. The same successful blend of the multifunctional SUV and the emotively appealing coupé world of Mercedes-Benz that was so enthusiastically welcomed with the GLE Coupé is now repeated with the Concept GLC Coupé. However, the near production-standard show car inhabits a more compact segment, as demonstrated by the external length of 186.2 inches (4.73 meters) and the 111.4 inch (2.83- meter) wheelbase. These two dimensions, together with the striking and muscular main body section, elongated greenhouse and large 21-inch wheels, provide an ideal basis for the typical, almost dramatic proportions of the sportily youthful coupé generation with the characteristic off-road touch.

2016-CONCEPT-GLC-COUPE-FUTURE-GALLERY-011-GOE-D– A Daimler Brand Distinctive front end, sculptural headlamp design at the front, a short, crisp overhang with upright radiator grille and twin-blade louvre so characteristic of sporty Mercedes-Benz models give a first indication of the sporty philosophy behind the Concept GLC Coupé. The credo “Born to race on every ground” is confirmed by the power domes on the hood, the sweeping lines of the A-wing below the radiator grille, the large side air intakes and the visually dominant underbody protection.

Like all the trim elements on the concept vehicle, this typical SUV feature radiates in silver shadow to form an attractive counterpoint to the solar-beam paintwork and the all-round claddings in matte gun metal magno paintwork. Reminiscent of light sculptures, striking LED headlamps decisively shape the expressive face of the Concept GLC Coupé.

All functions are united in one housing: for illumination, the daytime running lamps and turn indicators use the upper strip inserts, dubbed “eyebrows” by the designers. Below them are three rotating lenses, which appear to positively float in the deep, three-dimensional space and which adapt to the situation to optimally illuminate the road or terrain.

Of course, the headlamps are non-dazzling for oncoming traffic in lower beam, upper beam, cornering light or active light mode. This is achieved by blanking out the light cone in the area of oncoming vehicles.

2016-CONCEPT-GLC-COUPE-FUTURE-GALLERY-006-GOE-DSide profile with low-slung coupé greenhouse and large SUV wheels The perfection with which the intrinsically contrary design worlds of the coupé and the SUV have been brought into harmony with each other is revealed in particular by a side view of the just under 63 inch high (1.60-metre) Concept GLC Coupé with the typical, elongated roof line of a sports coupé.

Like the integrated roof rails and fully recessed door handles, the squat greenhouse with its frameless side windows blends perfectly into the vehicle’s flanks to additionally underscore the coupé-like character.

The interplay with the high beltline, wide shoulders and accentuated wheel lips gives rise to extreme proportions that lend the Concept GLC Coupé a thrilling dynamism. This highly charged interaction is given extra emphasis by the drawn-in waist between the dropping line and the lower, rearwards ascending light catching contour.

A clear indication of the more prominent SUV genes is given by sill extensions reminiscent of the side running boards on a classic SUV. Flush with the outside edge of the body, wide 21-inch wheels with large, heavily profiled tires combine with the relatively high ground clearance to endorse the sportily dynamic off-road ambitions of the Concept GLC Coupé. Rear end with distinct coupé heritage The rear view of the precisely 78.7 inch (two-meter) wide Concept GLC Coupé in particular reveals the wide, muscular shoulders with harmoniously modelled wheel arches that house 21-inch (53.3 cm) wheels with 285/45 R 21 wide-base tires.

The four polished stainless-steel tailpipes of the exhaust system provide a visual highlight. Mounted in pairs above an A-wing similar to the one at the front and featuring characteristic underbody protection, the tailpipes underscore the sporty look of the coupé.

Overall, it is the styling of the rear end that most clearly accentuates the coupé genes of the concept vehicle. Narrow, split tail lights, centrally positioned brand star and a sharp spoiler lip emphasize a design line that made its debut with the S-Class Coupé and which all Mercedes-Benz coupé models have since followed.

Relocated to the lower section of the bumper, the number plate as well as the typical form of the rear window with its rounded upper area are among the further stylistic features. The night design of the LED tail lights sets a new tone. Adapted from the headlamps, the strips at the top are home to the turn indicators, which use chasing lights to signal a change of direction.

A circular rear light encloses a central lens that adaptively augments the brake lamp for even better visibility. Technical details provide a stimulating contrast hard technical details give an additional emotive appeal to the Concept GLC Coupé with its almost organic form of the main body section. For example, excitingly designed components such as two-part, open light-alloy wheels, wing-look exterior mirrors and the already mentioned four exhaust tailpipes set a deliberate stylistic contrast intended to underscore the technological claim of the show car. The same goes for the underbody protection with front and rear cooling ducts and the headlamps and tail lights, which resemble light sculptures.

Power aplenty: all-wheel-drive powertrain producing 367 hp. the drive technology aboard the Concept GLC Coupé matches the vehicle’s looks. A V6 power plant delivering 367 hp. (270 kW) and 384 lb-ft (520 Nm) makes for a highly sporty level of performance.

Familiar from AMG sports models, the direct injection biturbo engine is teamed with a 9G-TRONIC nine-speed automatic transmission and 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive to provide the show car with emphatic acceleration while at the same time giving an acoustically audible note to the impressive performance. Depending on the transmission mode setting, the tailpipes give off either a commandingly subdued rumble or the passionate sound of a high-powered sports car.

Extension to the SUV world of Mercedes-Benz the SUV world of Mercedes-Benz has room for further models, such as a production version of the Concept GLC Coupé. The wide range of models allows customers the flexibility to order a tailor-made vehicle to suit their personal preferences. At the same time, the show car would enrich the trendsetting coupé world of Mercedes-Benz with a new all-rounder while providing a logical addition to models such as the four-door coupés. In addition to spawning entirely new classes of vehicle, these models have also exerted a considerable impact on the model policies of all manufacturers. They have also proved an outstanding success on the sales front.
