Ball Pit Parties For Adults?!
The average American adult might forget where they put their car keys, but they just as reliably remember playing in a ball pit when they were young. Be it at Chuck E. Cheese's or some rich kid's birthday, ball pits were seriously the pinnacle of the party - and no one seems to remember that more than Forward Motion founder Ryan Lum. Forward Motion, a non-profit that specializes in making 'bucket list'-level experiences come true, wanted to give San Francisco-based adults an opportunity to relive their childhood - with very grown-up twist - by throwing a ball pit party at a bar. (Kind of like your standard ball pit - but WITH BOOZE!) Apparently, the event was a year in the making - as it took a little time to fundraise enough money for the 40,000 ball pit balls used. However, once the ball pit party finally happened this month, it was a HUGE success - with swarms of people coming in and out to dive into the ball pit, cocktail in hand. "I talked to many of the attendees as they left the ball pit with a huge smile on their faces. I overheard people saying things like, 'my inner child is so happy right now'. People loved the idea [and] wanted to know if there will be more." For those of you who are in the San Francisco area and want to get in on this action, another ball pit party is planned to be held at the Monarch nightclub next month. However, never fear, everyone else. Forward Motion hopes to bring more ball pit parties to other adults-with-inner-children in the US. In the meantime, at least we have this sweet video of the action, right? Who would be down for a ball pit party? What other childhood things do you wish you could do all over again? Personally, I'd be down for making goodie bags with candy and cute erasers and stickers for all of my birthday parties. I mean, why do goodie bags even stop at a certain age?

SFMOMA's Colorful Mondrian Cake: A Recipe
One thing I've been a little obsessed with lately is the special dessert collaboration between Blue Bottle Coffee and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA). The coffee company has created special desserts especially to be sold at the museum, all of which are inspired by famous modern artists. My personal favorite is a cake inspired by Piet Mondrian's "Composition in Red, Yellow & Blue". Mondrian worked with virtual simplification of forms until all that was left was thick lines and blocks that varied in color meant to create a sense of movement in the piece. Now replace all those lines and blocks with chocolate and fluffy pieces of cake, and you've got yourself something as fun to eat as it is to simply look at. The SFMOMA is currently under construction until early 2016, so you can only order full cakes off the Blue Bottle website. However, since their collaboration, head pastry chef Caitlin Freeman has also published a book full of all the different art-inspired recipes called "Modern Art Desserts". Here is the recipe for adventurous Vinglers who want to create a little edible art in their kitchen! (Attached is a bonus video of Blue Bottle Coffee making their on Mondrian cakes, plus my second place favorite SFMOMA dessert, the "Ocean Park #122"-inspired Richard Diebenkorn Trifle!) Mondrian Cake You will need 1 x 20cm square tin 3 x 450g loaf tin (measuring approx 16cm x 11cm x 7cm) or 1 battenberg tin For the cakes 500g unsalted butter 500g caster sugar 5 eggs 500g sour cream or Greek yogurt 750g self-raising flour 1 tsp of salt Red, blue and yellow food coloring gels or paste For the ganache 400g dark 50% chocolate, chopped 300ml double cream Preparation 1. Preheat the oven to 180C (350F). Grease and line the base and sides of your tins with baking paper. 2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy using a food processor, electric hand whisk, or a wooden spoon and some elbow grease. Add the eggs, one at a time, plus sour cream, self-raising flour and salt, and whisk together until smooth. 3. Spoon 900g of the mix into the 20cm square tin and put to one side. 4. Divide the remaining mixture into three bowls, with approximately 450g of cake mix in each. Color one bowl’s mixture with the blue dye, another with the red and finally, yellow. You want the colors to be vivid, so really go for it. 5. Spoon the different colored mixtures into the three separate loaf tins and place in the oven, along with the square tin, for 45-50 minutes, until an inserted skewer comes out clean. (You might want to rotate the tins so that they’re evenly cooked.) Leave to cool, then transfer to wire racks. 6. Meanwhile, make the ganache, which you will use to stick the cake together and coat the outside. Put the chocolate into a bowl and heat the cream in a saucepan over a medium heat. Just before it boils, pour it over the chocolate. Leave to sit for five minutes, then stir until smooth. Leave to cool. 7. Place the cooled cakes on a chopping board. Using a bread knife, slice all the edges off the cakes so that you’re left with long, brightly colored rectangles, approximately 18cm in length. 8. Using a picture of your chosen Mondrian for inspiration, very carefully measure and slice the cakes to make straight-edged long rectangles. Put the cake slices together as you build your picture. 9. Line two trays with baking parchment. Piece by piece, spread the cake lengths with the chocolate ganache, using it like glue to stick your strips back together to recreate your Mondrian on one tray. Put in the fridge to firm up for about one hour – this hardens the ganache and makes the cake easier to work with. 10. Remove the cake from the fridge. Spread the ganache over the cake, using a pallet knife to smooth it over the sides and top. Transfer to the fridge for one hour to firm up. Remove from the fridge, place the second lined baking tray on top and invert the cake. Use the rest of ganache to coat the remaining edge – you may have to heat it up slightly to loosen it. Make sure the ganache is evenly spread. Place in the fridge for a final hour, then remove and allow it to reach room temperature. Finally, slice the cake, feel smug and serve.
3 Ways To Get Your Wanderlust Fix On A Budget
For people who don't feel right when their feet have been on the same soil for too long, you understand the hold wanderlust has over you. Looking up flight prices, addicted to hostel world, and the map on your wall is marked with every place you NEED to go to has you feeling all types of pent up and claustrophobic when you are home bound. So you also understand the horror of being landlocked not because you lack a sense of adventure, but because money doesn't grow on trees and neither does time off. However, never fear, because there are some ways to get that wander lust fix in-between trips. 1. Plan weekend trips to places you've never been before. I know leaving the country always seems so much better than staying in your own, but you need to toss that notion aside. Each country has something mysterious, amazing, and shockingly new that you are doing yourself an injustice by not traveling it. Start planning mini trips to states, or your countries equivalent of a state, (I'm from the US clearly haha), and go! It costs a lot less plus going somewhere totally new will feel awesome! 2. Do something you've never done before! Make your current home seem more exciting by doing something you have never ever done before. Adventure is everywhere, you just have to be willing to look! Go rock climbing the town over from you or google the nearest sky diving place. Take a hike on a trail you've never been on or even go camping with friends if you are to use to the city landscape. Mixing up life at home by making your own adventures can help you get a little dose of that travel feeling to remind you that the world truly can be yours. 3. Go out to eat at an authentic restaurant you never tried before. Wander lust is all about new experiences, so if you want to go to India, find a truly authentic Indian restaurant to lose yourself in for a meal. Food is one of the greatest parts about travel, so if you are really tight on a budget, one meal could get you your fix. Just make sure you do some research first to make sure your place can really sell you the culture you wished you were submerged in. Just remember, keep saving and take the plunge, travel is always worth it.
