Forget Portland: Become a Spin Master at Maldives DJ Camp

March 14, 2013 at 12:08 PM | by | Comments (0)

We asked you this week to dish on your noisy hotel experiences, and boy, you had stories to tell about, among other things, loud music and drunk people.

On that note, let us be the first to invite you to the DJ party at the NIYAMA Maldives from April 11th to the 19th during the DJ Dispensary Retreat. We know what you're thinking... DJs? Dispensaries? Where are we? Portlandia?

Well, forget Oregon--it's time to learn how to spin while kicking it beside the Indian Ocean. You can take either a three ($850) or seven ($2,000) day disc jockey course (lodging included), both of which include group and one-on-one lessons on music progression as well as familiarization sessions with the DJ equipment. The seven-day trip culminates with your first solo set in either Subsix, an underwater club, or Fahrenheit, the resort's rooftop bar, which will be recorded and given to you along with a course handbook, X-Mini speakers, headphones, and a few other goodies.

Here's the latest happening in the luxury hotel world as told by Just Luxe's own Lena Katz. Got a question about luxury hotels, the travel biz, and where to stay? Send it in and we'll have Lena answer it.

We’re huge fans of the IFC sketch comedy show "Portlandia", for so many reasons: It taught us interpretive canoe dancing is totally a real thing and reminds us that the dream of the 90s is alive!! (btw, that’s the theme song’s catchphrase.)

Downtown Portland's Hotel deLuxe, which was featured in the recent episode “Squiggleman,” just announced a "Pilgrimage to Portlandia" package that incorporates goodies seen in past episodes. The Art Deco hotel is a 130-room artsy urban haven from the Provenance Hotels group.

Here are some perks you'll receive with their themed package:

Okay you guys. Last night was awesome. We already told ya what was up if you were near Brooklyn, and that was a sneak preview screening of Season 2 of IFC's show "Portlandia." Two of the HotelChatter team made it to scope out the place and naturally get a peek at the series, and we happened to learn something else: another hotel screening has been added, TONIGHT.

So this evening, if you're in Portland, Oregon or near the Bolingbrook suburb of Chicago, you can go see several (currently unreleased) hilarious bits from the new series, plus get free Portlandia swag (we scored Portlandia hats, a "Put a Bird on it" tee, an Aloft tote and the entire Season 1 on DVD). Swag may vary, but the awesomeness won't. Here's what's up:

A few quick questions: Do you like hotels? Did you watch (and laugh at) any of the first season of IFC's show Portlandia? Do you like free stuff? If you answered yes to at least two of these questions and you're anywhere near Brooklyn, NY or Portland, OR this week, you should totally head to Aloft Hotels' screenings of the first episode of Portlandia Season 2.

The new season officially begins this Friday on IFC at 10pm EST, and sure you can already watch preview sketches online, but going outside your place and seeing the whole first ep (for free) while scoring drink specials and Portlandia swag while having the opportunity to meet other local hipsters beats out the internet.Here's the screening schedule:

Wednesday, January 4, 7pm: Aloft Brooklyn 216 Duffield Street

Thursday, January 5, 7pm: Aloft Portland 9920 NE Cascades Parkway
