Out of the Box Valentine’s Weekend Event for Open Minded Couples

Couples from all over Canada and the US converge in Niagara Falls ON each year for a weekend event that celebrates human sexuality and freedom of expression.

NIAGARA FALLS, ONTARIO, CANADA, January 15, 2019 / — Every year in February since 2007, hundreds of sexually liberated, committed couples converge in Niagara Falls ON for a phenomenal experience like no other: a hotel takeover dedicated to exploring ones hedonistic delights. This event, called Valentine’s In Niagara, is designed for swingers, nudists, exhibitionists and those who want to step out of their old, stodgy ways and experiment a little with their partner.

While many attendees to this Couples Only event are swingers, there are a growing number of committed, monogamous couples who attend this event to help ignite their love life, to encourage themselves to dress sexily and to actively think outside their usual sexual existence together. This event is a portal to expanding one’s sexual experiences, offering opportunities to learn thru workshops, seminars and demos, as well as plenty of chances to talk with other experienced couples in the Swinger Lifestyle about what works for them and how they got started.

TABOTA knows how to put on a party. TABOTA is a Toronto based company that puts on events of this nature several times a year, including Teddy Bare Picnic in Aug, a sexy camp out in Ontario, and sponsoring themed events at The O Zone, a swingers club in Toronto.

The owners of TABOTA say, “We’ve been at it for awhile now, so it comes pretty naturally. All the major details are the same, so that leaves time to create new and interesting aspects, like the live show on Saturday night, with an X-Rated Hypnotist, and some fun, new contests.”

While they don’t disclose the actual location of this weekend-long event publicly for security reasons, location is disclosed to their guests once registered. TABOTA books the entire hotel in Niagara Falls, including a beautiful indoor tropical paradise with hot tubs and indoor pool. Many of the rooms open directly into the courtyard and the Room Decorating contest is a favorite of many.

One of the hotel employees, when asked what the staff think about this event, replied, “Oh, we love it here! We draw straws to see who gets to work the weekend.” This employee has been working at the hotel for eight years and said “I was sad my third year here when I wasn’t on the schedule, and all the other employees raved about the weekend when I got back to work on Monday”. The TABOTA team are respectful of the hotel, it’s amenities, and it’s staff, and ensure that guests are as well, making a healthy, symbiotic relationship that has worked for many years.

So, if you are in a committed relationship with an open-minded individual, looking for something new and sexy to help spark your sex life, check out for details to see if this event is right for you and yours!

The owners of Footprints Resort say, “Guests love the privacy of Villas. The scent alone is worth the few extra steps to get to them. And having your own sitting area outside your Villa and a BBQ of your own has been popular as well.”

Footprints also features a conversation pool on the deck with a view of the hot tub and private lake. It’s a great place to cool off on hot days, socialize with other guests or take a break before preparing dinner. The owners say, “The pool has been very popular.

Alternative Ontario Vacation Destination for Open Minded Couples

If naturalist rules are too stringent for you, perhaps this Adults Only, Couples resort is perfect for your summer vacation.

BANCROFT, ONTARIO, CANADA, January 15, 2019 / — Did you know, that tucked away on a quaint, boutique resort in Ontario, there is a place for those adventurous couples who just can’t find a comfortable place for their own brand of uniqueness? Sandy Bottoms Resort, an adult couples only, clothing optional vacation destination, is attracting open minded, loving couples from all over Canada and the US who are looking for something a little different.

Among it’s guests, you’ll find nudists who love to bask in the sun, swingers who enjoy flirting and playing with others and exhibitionists who are looking for an opportunity for public displays without the risk of being arrested but with the very real risk of being seen by others. And yet others are happy to have the freedom to speak openly about taboo sexual topics and to flirt openly with their partner and maybe others. At Sandy Bottoms Resort, these couples are finding the freedom to explore their sexual desires in ways that are often frowned upon by polite society.

When asked about their clientele, the owners of Sandy Bottoms Resort said, “We have guests from all walks of life with many different interests and vacation goals. Our biggest concern is respect of other guests, but the resort is large enough that if you see something you don’t like, there is plenty of room to find your own piece of paradise and do your own thing.” Guests are given a short tour after check in, and the rules are gone over so everyone is on the same page, including where it’s not cool to have sex, like in the hot tub and pool for hygienic reasons, as well as in the lounge where people prepare food.

“The floating dock and water trampoline on our private lake are popular gathering places on a hot summer day and we don’t watch to see what’s going on out there, but clearly they are well used.” says a staff member at the resort. “Many guests bring along large inflatable rafts and pool floaties to create a party on the lake on those hot afternoons.”

The resort is self-catering, which means you bring your own food and drink to prepare for yourselves. Meal times create a social atmosphere where guests prep and cook together, and often share meals with other guests. Fast friendships are made at Sandy Bottoms. “We see many couples return the same week on subsequent years to be reunited with friends they met on previous visits” reports the owner. “But there is still room for plenty of newcomers and these guests are often on hand to welcome new couples when they arrive. The atmosphere is very inclusive.”

Themed weeks this summer create a different feel and focus each week, such as the Beach Party week and Newbies & Nature week. They also host Band Camp, where guests are encouraged to bring their instrument of choice and play at the nightly campfires. Games, themed parties and mixers are created with flirty fun in mind and are a highlight for many guests, ending with a foam party on Saturday nights if weather permits.

Just a few short hours drive from both Toronto and Ottawa and nestled into the forest on the southern tip of Algonquin Park, it’s privacy draws guests from near and far. This summer is already booking up fast, so if this is your kind of vacation check it out and book soon to avoid disappointment.

Daruma Tech Lands Extended Contract to Support Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization’s (MPO) Website and Outreach

Moving People, Creating Jobs, and Strengthening Communities

Public organizations want to use taxpayer funds responsibly. We respect their logistical and budgetary limits, and know how to do great work that delights their communities while staying on budget.”

— Susan Erickson

BOCA RATON, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, January 15, 2019 / — Florida-based software developer Daruma Tech has signed an extended contract with the Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for continued support for its modern and interconnected website.

The MPO contract extension for web support will include future website design, enhancements, hosting, and maintenance. This achievement marks the latest in a series of projects Daruma Tech has been awarded for public sector and government clients, based on their record of successful support and execution, as well as their expertise in ADA compliance, a priority for governmental agencies. The MPO contract extension comes on the heels of Daruma Tech’s recently awarded contract to build a new Tri-Rail mobile app for the South Florida Regional Transportation Authority (SFRTA).

The MPO’s clean and easy to navigate website, which Daruma Tech developed for the MPO, reflects the broad scope of the MPO’s challenging mission to plan, budget, and prioritize the transportation needs of the nearly 2 million residents of Broward County, Florida. Since Broward County, a metropolitan region in southeast Florida, is the second-most-populous county in Florida and includes the cities of Fort Lauderdale, Hollywood, and Pompano Beach, it’s critical that the site be current, easy to navigate, engaging, and useful.

Daruma Tech was tapped for the project in part because of its outstanding experience with and understanding of the needs of the governmental sector. “Public organizations want to use taxpayer funds responsibly,” said Susan Erickson of Daruma Tech. “We respect their logistical and budgetary constraints, and know how to do great work that delights their communities while staying on budget. The MPO had the opportunity to see us at work with our original design for their website, and we’re thrilled that they chose to have us help them again on a continuing basis.”

Besides extensive information about the MPO’s projects, mission, and organization, the site includes a calendar of events, videos, and interactive maps that allow users to explore and learn more about the MPO’s many projects and their community impacts. The site also includes archives of past MPO projects as well as a list of employment opportunities and links for applications.

Because of the dynamic nature of the MPO’s many activities, the site requires regular updates and quality checks to ensure it stays accurate and relevant. “Our experience as developers, marketers, and communicators is the key to our success with public organizations like the MPO,” Erickson said. “The ability to respond quickly to public concerns is critical for them, and we have the technical and PR skills to enable them to communicate effectively with their communities.”

Daruma Tech is a privately held software design firm based in the Research Park at Florida Atlantic University® in Boca Raton, Florida. Its mission is to serve businesses across a range of industries with innovative software applications incorporating both cutting-edge technology and designs focused on the unique logistical and human needs of each client.

Mayor of Los Angeles Eric Garcetti Praises Rene’s Van & Storage Inc. for its 85th Anniversary in L.A.

L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti

“On behalf of the City of Los Angeles, it is my pleasure to congratulate Rene’s Van & Storage on their 85th anniversary.” – Mayor Eric Garcetti

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, January 14, 2019 / — Rene’s Van & Storage, Inc. a family-owned business, California’s oldest licensed moving company, and a recent winner of the Best of Los Angeles Award for “Best Moving & Storage – 2018” recently celebrated its 85th Anniversary at the Santuari Restaurant in Toluca Lake.

“With over 85 years in the moving and storage industry we had the privilege of coming along for the ride,” explains Marshall Lambert, President of Rene’s Van & Storage, “as well as accompanying many of our long-term clients on this journey. We have moved many generations in and out of their homes and now their children are calling us to help them out.”

Eric Garcetti, the mayor of Los Angeles, even took the time to send his praise. “On behalf of the City of Los Angeles,” Garcetti said, “it is my pleasure to congratulate Rene’s Van & Storage on their 85th anniversary.”

It all started in 1920's, when the Lambert family relocated to the United States of America, bringing a specialized technique of moving with them. This skill was passed down through generations and still sets a high-quality standard of moving in the industry today.

The family opened Lamberts Van & Storage in 1933, which became one of the premier moving companies in Los Angeles. One of the Lambert’s children, Rene J Lambert, decided to venture out on his own fresh out of the U.S. Military. Along with his wife Marjorie, they opened Rene’s Van & Storage in 1945. The company was embraced by the community. Rene and his wife Marjorie made a name for themselves in the moving industry by being one of the first companies to offer public storage.

In the 1940’s and 1950’s, the couple purchased several moving companies around the Los Angeles area which helped grow the business and bring in high-profile customers. In the 1960’s, Rene and Marjorie purchased the family business (Lambert’s Van & Storage) from Rene’s siblings, further expanding their customer base.

In 2011, Lambert’s Van & Storage Inc. was merged into Rene’s Van & Storage Inc. combining two elite companies into one. Today, Rene’s Van & Storage is now managed by its third generation and currently holds the oldest California Moving License; the closest carrier is over 6,000 numbers away.

“For four generations, this family business has helped Angelenos from Frank Sinatra and Bob Hope to Marilyn Monroe and President Reagan move from Point A to Point B,” Mayor Garcetti praised, “their commitment to customer service, honesty, quality care, experience, and innovative moving has cemented the company’s legacy as a L.A. institution.”

Rene’s has several locations including an 88,000 square foot facility in Los Angeles, as well as multiple on-staff installation specialists for high-valued items. “We know life can be stressful and at times unpredictable,” concludes Lambert, “but Rene’s can make your move as seamless and stress-free as possible. You can count on us with our impeccable attention to detail and white glove service every step of the way.”

“Congratulations again on achieving this remarkable milestone,” Garcetti concludes, “and I send my best wishes for a memorable celebration and continued success.”

54% of those surveyed would book a hotel if it included Smart TVs with Netflix, with 40% of men wanting a video games console in a hotel – compared to just 22% of women.

Social media proved to be an important factor for millennials when it comes to hotels and travel with 1 in 4 millennials using social media sites to find their holiday accommodation.

83% of millennials said they would be more likely to book a hotel after seeing images from someone they follow on social media, 73% check the social media feed of hotel before booking and 1 in 3 would be put off booking altogether if a hotel had no social media presence.

Website performance was another key area of investment for hotels – 80% of millennials find a hotel using Google and more than half of millennials wouldn’t book a hotel if the website was difficult to use – with 49% put off if they couldn’t book instantly online.

Alan Towns, CEO of Knightsbridge furniture explained more about the research “Our research shows a shift in the priorities of travellers as a generation used to sharing and documenting its experiences becomes the dominant demographic – it’s telling that 57% of millennials would return to a hotel for a powerful wireless internet connection alone."

“Another key finding was that 76% of those surveyed admitted to sharing an image of themselves in a hotel on social media, which illustrates the important of interior design and key furniture pieces, and truly enlightened hoteliers can create environments that fit into the perfect Instagram shot.”
