Weather Woes Added to the Challenges at Royce Brook Golf Club
Sometimes you just have to take a day and play golf, so I rounded up Mark Lane and Christopher Ottaunick (Yammi) of Global Traveler’s Advisory Board for a threesome and booked a tee time through golfnow.com at Royce Brook Golf Club’s East Course. Torrential rain hit the area the night before, so we knew the course would be wet, but did not anticipate the circuitous routes we had to take due to road closures from the flooding Raritan River.

The Draper, Ascend Hotel Collection Review
ARRIVAL/CHECK-IN: I had a dinner meeting in the city and decided to spend the night rather than rushing back after. I had driven to the city, and even though people are back in NYC, driving during non-rush hours seems manageable. I parked around the corner from the hotel and walked to The Draper. The lobby is basic, and there still seemed to be a lot of COVID barriers. I swiftly checked in and took the elevator to my floor. The Ascend Hotel Collection is the upscale boutique brand of Choice Hotels.
