Things To Do
Orbitz: Take a Solo
While Summer 2021 already spawned a new travel trend, revenge travel, as vacationers plan their Labor Day trips to end the season, they’re not necessarily booking a ticket for two. According to Orbitz, single roundtrip tickets are up 200% or more, for the holiday weekend compared to 2020. U.S. cities including NYC, Chicago, Boston and Seattle are topping the list for solo travelers, as many look for responsible leisure travel options to end the summer.
“There are a lot of reasons why solo travel might be more popular right now, the main one being that it’s easier to manage and plan travel for one versus a group while navigating Covid protocols,” says Mel Dohmen, Senior Brand Manager at Orbitz. Demand to go to Canada – which recently reopened to vaccinated US travelers – BBQ-famous cities, and beaches are also trending up over the long weekend. Below, are some solo trends and top destinations for the end of summer and fall from Orbitz.
Solo travel trends include:
August through October is usually the biggest time for solo travelers
Beaches and international beaches are predicted to be the most popular destinations for the back half of 2021

Have Beer, Wine, and Cocktails at Pasadena’s NY-Style U Street Pizza
Restaurateur Marie Petulla and Executive Chef Chris Keyser of Union in Pasadena opened sister restaurant U Street Pizza this past spring and their NYC by way of California pies have entered the top tier of the pizza echelons in LA. They are now offering pizza-friendly cocktails and wine and West Coast beers to complement the menu of crispy, chewy pies, salads, seasonal sides and dessert.
The U Street Pizza team collaborated with beverage consultant and Future Gin co-founder Mary Bartlett on a cocktail list highlighting California-based, woman-owned and/or BIPOC producers resulting in easygoing yet complex drinks that pair perfectly with a clam pie and a caesar salad as they do risotto rice pudding.
Start out with the sunny and sessionable Free Parking with fresh pressed watermelon juice, orange wine and pisco and move on to the Oaxacan Summer featuring mezcal, pamplemousse, Amaro Angeleno and lemon, and end with the Caffee 1749 with Appleton Estate Rum, maple syrup, Luxardo Maraschino, Fernet Branca, chocolate bitters and cold brew coffee. In a true ode to pizza and Los Angeles, Mary and the team created the not-to-be-missed Pizzalada: a take on the Michelada using U Street’s pizza sauce and Madewest Brewing Co.’s Ventura Light Domestic Lager along with housemade fresno hot sauce, fresh pineapple juice and coconut aminos.

The approachable wine list curated by U Street’s Dave Castagnetti skews small, natural Italian producers with cameos from California makers featuring light crisp white, low-tannin and chilled reds and easy-drinking bubbles, rose + orange selections offering a low stakes sense of discovery.
U Street’s Logan Bates selected a well-rounded list of rotating beers celebrating California breweries like Madewest Brewing Co. (Ventura, CA), Smog City Brewing Co. (Torrance), Pizza Port Brewery (Carlsbad), Beachwood Brewing Co. (Garden Grove), Modern Times (San Diego) and Crown & Hops (Santa Rosa) and Seattle’s Fremont Brewing Company.
Coming soon: cocktails, beer and wine available for pick-up and delivery.
U Street Pizza is open Tuesday through Sunday from 4pm-9pm . Reservations via Resy and pick-up via Toast. Delivery available through Postmates and Uber Eats
