CHICAG

Each year, Navy Pier is home to numerous events, but there are a few that are especially worth attending if you happen to be visiting Chicagoland area at the right time.


GOLAND When it comes to piers, there is perhaps none more famous than Navy Pier in Chicago. Located on Lake Michigan's shore, Navy Pier was built for over $4 million USD in 1916. When it was designed, the main use was to be for cargo ships and other large freighters. While recreation and tourism were only its secondary purpose, it quickly became the most popular aspect of the pier and remains that way today as Chicago's most visited landmark. Commercial use was very prevalent at Navy Pier until the Great Depression , but was still a hot spot for tourists. It was also used to train Naval soldiers during World War II, and didn't start to become the modern piece of attraction it is today until the 1980s.

Liquid Gold: The World’s Most Expensive Cocktail Some champagne bottles come at a painful price tag: the 2013 Armand de Brignac

Rose 30-Litre Midas that sells at $275,000, the 1959 Dom Perignon at $42,350 and the 1841 Veuve Clicquot at $34,000, just to name a few. While some are simply expensive because of the signature logos handcrafted in 18-carat gold or the 19-carat flawless deepcut white diamonds fitted prominently on the bottles. Others have a lot to do with the price tags because of the taste of sparkly diamonds. There aren’t many people, even if they had all the wealth in the world, who would spend over £7,000 in one sitting, let alone on one shot. But this Chinese businessman Jason Wong did in Hong Kong. He drank the most expensive shot in the world and “it wasn’t a drunken mistake”.

That said, would you pay £50,000 for a truly expensive cocktail? This margarita (pictured left) perhaps is one of London’s most expensive drink, topped with lashings of gold. You can only buy this margarita at Cantina Laredo, a Mexican restaurant nestled in Covent Garden, in London. So, what’s in this pricey and sumptuous drink? Other than the exceptional ingredients put together in this cocktail, it is made up of Jose Cuervo Platino, and the 1800 Colección tequila that sells for around £2,000 per bottle, a fusion of white pineapple juice and limequats and topped with the Australian finger lime with “caviar-like” appearance. The margarita lives up to its name as it is served with a pineapple flower and a diamond.

Be the

King of the Road in the New

Mercedes-Benz S-Class

What do Kourtney Kardashian, Natalie Portman, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Daniel Craig, Jake Gyllenhall, Ashton

Kutcher and Demi Moore have in common? Besides being extremely famous, they’re all fans of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, the famed German automaker’s flagship to which all other luxury sedans aspire. And they’re far from the only ones; the S-Class was the best-selling luxury sedan in the world in 2016. Paul Altieri, founder of online luxury watch boutique Bob’s Watches and one of the world’s top Rolex collectors, tells JustLuxe that when it comes to luxury cars “there is simply no substitute”. Altieri, who has owned several S-Class models over the years, says it “represents the pinnacle of automotive excellence, the perfect package of power, luxury and style. It’s perfectly discreet but utterly elegant. Mercedes-Benz cars are known for the finest technology, comfort, performance and reliability in the industry, and the S-Class is the best of the best. I’ve driven other high-end cars but I always return to the S-Class, nothing else truly compares. And the valets at the country club always give me the best spot.” Expect even more preferential treatment if you get your hands on new S-Class, which Mercedes has updated extensively for 2018. This is no mere facelift. In addition to new styling that gives the S-Class an even more gracefully imposing presence, it is now also above and beyond the competition when it comes to state-of-the-art tech. The new S-Class models advance even further towards autonomous driving but don’t forfeit the thrill of driving a powerful luxury sedan. That’s in addition to a new generation of Mercedes-Benz engines, all-new dual 12.3” high-resolution dashboard displays with a single bonded glass panel, exclusive new trim and upholstery offerings, and climate control, ambient lighting, massage and “fragrancing” functions that harmonize to create the perfect driving environment. S-Class models start at $89,900 and go up to $229,500, and the range offers several options including the S460, S560, Mercedes-AMG S63 Sedan, Mercedes-AMG S65 and even a mogul-friendly Mercedes-Maybach S560. Power options kick off with the S450 4MATIC’s 3.0L V6 biturbo good for 362 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque, while the 4.0L V8 in the S560 and Mercedes-Maybach S560 4MATIC has 463 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. At the top of the class is the S65’s 4.0L V8 biturbo knocking out an eye-popping 603 hp, with the kind of handcrafted attention to detail you’d expect of a $230K car. The first clue that the S-Class has been amped up is a new grille, and Mercedes enthusiasts will now be able to tell exactly what model they’re seeing by its configuration: six and eight-cylinder cars sport three twin louvers as well The Presidential Magazine 16


as vertical strips with a high-gloss black finish; “lower” classes have fewer louvers. also new are the LED taillamp designed to be reminiscent of “crystal jewels,” a redesigned sporty front bumper with pronounced air intakes, a redesigned lower bumper section with integrated tailpipe trim spanning the entire width of the vehicle. While the exterior features are eye-catching, the most impressive element of the new S-Class are the dual high-resolution displays which share a single glass cover for a wide-screen cockpit effect that is user friendly, cool and futuristic. Three different display styles – Classic, Sport and Progressive – transform the driving experience at the touch of a button. In fact, the new Touch Control Buttons on the steering wheel are made to interact like the screen of a smartphone, allowing you to swipe to control the entire multimedia system without taking your hands off the wheel. It can also be operated via Voice Control, and once you’ve gotten used to saying “driver massage on” there’s simply no going back to ordinary driving. Mercedes of course already had a lock on beautifully finished wood and leather, but the new S-Class introduces two new natural grain ash wood trim specs and a new range of brown hues with three new two-tone combinations: Silk Beige/Deep-Sea Blue, Magma Grey/Espresso Brown and Mahogany/Silk Beige. Want to get even deeper into the color wheel? Choose the extended ambient lighting option which offers up 64 of them and adds lighting elements on the trim, central display, handle recesses, door pockets, front and rear footwells and on the overhead control panel when the vehicle is equipped with the Burmester High-End 3D Surround Sound System – highly recommended. Among all the features of the new S-Class which we enjoyed on our drive from Greenwich, Connecticut up to Kennebunkport, Maine, the most revolutionary was the Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC and Active Steering Assist systems controlled via steering wheel-mounted buttons. The systems allow for semi-autonomous driving with the ability to keep a safe distance from other cars, turn itself on curves and even change lanes. Speed is adjusted automatically ahead of curves or intersections, and the car even makes use of radar systems and map and navigation data to “calculate driving behavior” and keep everything smooth, certain, and perfectly balanced, allowing you to relax and revel in the masterful expression of what a luxury sedan should be.

How To Drive A Golf Ball Straight by Steve Cox

Learning how to drive a golf ball straight takes practice. A driving range is one of the best ways to improve your golf game, with or without the guidance and advice of a golf pro. Take time on the driving range to improve your stance, posture, grip and swing without having to worry about holding other golfers up from their own games. The driving range can also be a more relaxed atmosphere, taking away some of the competitive edge that you might find on the course. Start with a warm-up to prevent injuries. If there is a line at the driving range, use that time to walk around, circling your arms to get them warmed up. Once it is your turn, start with small, smooth chip shots. Hit a dozen or so balls this way, making sure to make good contact with the ball and keeping your swing smooth and fluid. Once you have finished with this activity, then move up to midrange shots, still keeping the swing controlled and smooth. Again, aim for a dozen or so balls and then move up to the long balls. Work hard, but do not over do. The harder you work at the driving range, the faster that it will show in your golf game. A good grip and a strong posture will mean a nice, straight tee shot. The closer you get to the hole on your initial drive, the less additional strokes that you will need to take. The less strokes that you have to take, the better your score, it is simple. Working at the driving range will also help build your confidence, which is also remarkably important to a solid golf score. Tension anywhere in your body will translate to tension in your arms, which will affect your golf swing. Build your confidenceArticle Submission, build your swing and you will be well on your way knowing how to drive a golf ball straight and improving your game along the way.
