Transcript: So you want to visit the Windy City? Here's how Chicago can blow you away. Plan your trip around a major Chicago event, like Lollapalooza, Taste of Chicago, a Cubs game at Wrigley Field or St. Patrick's Day. Why St. Patrick's Day, you ask? The river gets dyed Irish green every year. Splurge on your stay and book at The Langham, Chicago. The No. 1 hotel in the city is within walking distance to Michigan Ave. and will give you views of the city that'll make you forget about the money you're spending on the room. A trip to Chicago is nothing without a picture by Cloud Gate — a public art sculpture better known as The Bean. You also haven't done Chicago right without touring the city via boat. Take Shoreline Sightseeing's architecture river tour for some of the best views of the city. And don't forget to check out a comedy show. Sure, Second City is legendary — but if you want something different, check out The iO Theater. And finally, the most important part of planning any trip — food and drink. If you want a nice brunch spot, head over to Beatrix. For some bomb deep-dish pizza, visit Lou Malnati's or Giordano's, two legendary joints in town. Or, if you, for whatever reason, don't want pizza, try Girl & The Goat or Giuliana Rancic's RPM Steak. Cap off your fun-filled days with drinks at Cherry Circle Room. If you're more into the club scene, check out ROOF on theWit.

The Shed at Dulwich was the number one rated restaurant in London, with foodies, celebrities and bloggers trying to get a table. The main obstacle for them, however, was that it didn't exist. Over the course of 8 months VICE's Oobah Butler used an assault of fake reviews to get his 'restaurant' to the hallowed top spot on TripAdvisor. With his phone perpetually ringing, PR agencies begging to represent it and TV crews pitching shows, Oobah decided he had no choice but to open its doors for one night only. Here is Oobah's journey into a false reality that captured the world's attention.

Here's a tour of the hotel I stayed in during my August 2014 Chicago trip. Like most of my personal travel, I opted for this place because it was cheap. In fact, it was priced just a little above the heavy discount properties on this particular week (like the downtown Travelodge and Red Roof Inn). With that in mind, this wasn't a bad room for the money. Clean and relatively comfortable. It was no-frills, but that's to be expected. The biggest asset this room had going for it was the unbelievable view out front. Is anyone more familiar with this property than I am? I couldn't figure out what the relationship between the Club Quarters and the River Hotel was. Is it just a name? ("Club Quarters River Hotel".) Is the hotel spit in two? The elevator banks would suggest this. I booked a room at the River Hotel (at a steep discount thanks to hotels.com), and my room had nothing but Club Quarters stuff in it. Did they downgrade me because I paid so little? I really couldn't figure out what was going on here. Club Quarters seems to be some sort of discount business hotel chain with a bunch of cool services for frequent travelers. Wish I had gotten some footage of the club level where a lot of these features were. It was really cool.

GRIMSBY, UNITED KINGDOM — I've given this place 4 stars. It's the all day breakfast that lets it down really...sounds like an ordinary review of a hotel right? Well, it's actually written from a man who was locked up at Grimsby police station in the UK on Wednesday. Christian Willoughby of Grimsby, North East Lincolnshire in the UK was taken into custody at Grimsby police station on Wednesday for an alleged 'misdemeanor'. He reportedly has a number of previous convictions including theft, burglary and assault. Willoughby somehow managed to smuggle an iPad into his cell and posted a TripAdvisor-style review of the cell on Facebook: "I've given this place 4 stars. It's the all day breakfast that lets it down really. Apart from that the staff are pleasant enough. Had my own on-suite room and butler... Who would come with tea and newspapers. Room was nice, the minimalistic idea was a nice touch. It was secure and safe... Quadruple glazing and security door. Ideal place for winding down after a hard day. I'd definitely come back". The post has since gone viral and has been shared almost 3,000 times on Facebook. "We take any such breach of security and detainee safety extremely seriously and will be carrying out a review of our detainee management to identify any lessons learned and prevent further reoccurrences in the future," Chief Inspector James Glansfield of Humberside Police told the Telegraph. ------------------------------------------------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.
