(Above) On top of the prized breakfast at The Old Spanish Sugar Mill Grill and Griddle House, there are many other activities offered at De Leon Springs State Park including
boat tours, swimming in the spring, scuba diving, and hiking through the trails. Before the restaurant or state park was established, sugar cane was crushed using the iconic
mill. Later on, Peter and Majorie Shwarze saw the value of this mill, and decided to open up this successful and admired location.

(Above) If you could only order one thing from the menu at Sugar Dough Bakehouse, I would recommend the Strawberry Croissant. It was essentially a croissant filled with a cream filling and fresh strawberries. The light and sweet texture of the filling was unlike any other. Although expensive, the fresh and fluffy dough of the croissant was well worth it.

A comparison of Battlefield 4 and Battlefield 2042’s tanks demonstrate the clearly
defined differences between the two photos. Many people have seen and shown that the tanks feel less powerful
than Battlefield 4’s tanks. They seem to have less health and loss of some of the abilites. Power over armor is not
a good dynamic. It should be more of focus than power to make it work properly.

(Above) Twenty Pho Hour has a wide variety of offerings on their menu, consisting of appetizers, fresh summer rolls, stir fry noodles, pho bowls, signature bowls, build your own bowls, drinks, and desserts.  While the menu is mainly focused on pho, other pan-Asian options are available. The most favored seem to be boba teas and refreshers and any type of pho with Twenty Pho Hour’s specialty sauce: 24 sauce. Twenty-four sauce showcases sweet, spicy, and savory flavors, which makes it the perfect pair with many of the dishes.

(Above) Ideas for the film Nomadland began in 2018 when Chloé Zhao, Peter Spears, and Frances McDormand met in McDormand’s apartment to discuss the film. During that discussion, it was evident that Zhao should take the position of director of the film. They heavily took inspiration from Jessica Bruder’s book Nomadland which focused on similar themes of community and freedom.

Claire Boucher, more commonly known as the experimental musician Grimes, arrived at the Met Gala in Iris van Herpen’s custom “Bene Gesserit” gown, which took more than 900 hours of construction. Each metallic swoosh and inch of fabric was first hand-cast from liquid silicone before being meticulously placed in between 26 layers of hand-sewn and dyed silk. The futuristic and other-worldly feeling radiating off of this outfit is meant to reference the 1965 science-fiction novel by Frank Herbert, Dune, which is currently being transformed into a movie adaptation. Collaborating with the staff on the Dune production, Grimes also wore the original metallic mask from the film as well as accompanying the look with a real metallic sword that was inspired by a western European sword from around the 1400s. Lastly, Grimes completed the look with metal elven ears, hand-crafted by Lillian Shalom.
