While staying in DC's Georgetown district, we saw many an image of George -- Washington, naturally. What we didn't expect, when we headed out to find another hotel bar, was to stumble into some kind of Hollywood shrine, complete with giant plastic bamboo shoots, gigantic sun umbrellas, and an oversized framed photograph of another, but certainly not lesser, George: Gorgeous George Clooney!

While they're slinging essential oil cocktails and providing live TV screens of the lobby installed at the whizzers in the bathrooms, Opus Vancouver is at it again! Now they're working with emerging artist Alana Rothstein on taking your souvenir to the next level, and we're talking serious art stuff.
If you don't know Alana, you soon will. She was one of the artists featured at LA's Carousel of Hope, hosted by George Clooney, and her EMERGE art piece sold for $10,000. Obviously she knows how to werk as a contemporary image maker. So what will she do for you?
With the new exclusive partnership with Opus, Alana is taking your vacation and putting it into her art. What you need to do is provide her with images of your Vancouver trip (or just any images you want, really) and she basically lasers it onto plexiglass for this uber unique souvenir. This comes after an initial consultation to determine what kind of mood, feeling and overall presentation you're looking to capture. We think this memorable art piece beats a postcard or chocolate from the duty-free but hey, that's just us.
There's a whole package around it so get booking before Alana becomes Damian Hirst famous.
The Ghostbusters may not be afraid of no ghosts but the New York Knicks basketball team, definitely is. The team says they were haunted by a ghost at the Skirvin Hilton in Oklahoma City where they stayed before playing The Thunder.
Eddy Curry even ran for the safety of his teammate's room because he was convinced ghosts were in his room.
"They said it happened on the 10th floor and I'm the only one staying on the 10th floor," Curry said. "That's why I spent most of my time in (Nate Robinson's) room. I definitely believe there are ghosts in that hotel."
The "it" he's referring too is the legend of a woman who jumped to her death in the 1930s holding her baby in her hands. Eee. Remind us not to check in here while visiting Oklahoma. Oh and btw, yes, the Knicks lost to the Thunder.

After the year that Hilton Hotels had with the whole Denizen Debacle, they were given some sweet relief this month with their featured role in the George Clooney movie "Up in the Air" about a frequent traveler trying to chase down the prize of 10 million miles.
Of course, we assumed that Hilton paid their way for this role or at least, slept with someone who knows someone (that is the Hollywood way, after all.) But nope. The NY Times report that neither Hilton or American Airlines paid for any positioning. However, they did let the crews film in their hotels free of charge and they cleared blocks of rooms:
The poor May Fair Hotel has been the scene of some budget celeb tension recently. First, Britain’s darling Cheryl Cole and her
cheating footballing husband Ashley Cole were spotted having a row in the lobby. Then the pneumatic Katie Price and her sap of an ex, Peter Andre, both stayed there on the same night, despite - gasp - swearing never to sleep under the same roof ever again.
But now, it’s playing backdrop for a slightly more A list piece of gossip, after the Italian gossip rag Novella 2000 got its hands on snaps of George Clooney’s bird Elisabetta Canalis staying on in the May Fair after accompanying her man to the London premiere of Up in the Air. And not only staying on after George had upped sticks to the States, but having a cosy dinner with footballer Clarence Seedorf - who then stayed in the hotel as well.
We were just casually flipping through a recent issue of Us Weekly when we spotted this item about George Clooney and his new
The source says Clooney is trying to keep the romance under wraps by using secret tunnels at the Delano and Fontainebleau hotels.
Say what? Secret tunnels? Secret entrances maybe but aren't tunnels impossible in South Beach? Because otherwise you would be underwater, right? Yet there might be some secret tunnels in town. Apparently, they were once used to hide American Idol contestants. Anybody got any more scoop about these "tunnels"? Let us know.
