2. Place Invaders
PlaceInvaders is a one-of-a-kind traveling pop-up dining experience, held in other people’s quirky, interesting, and remarkable residences — while no one’s home. An intimate dinner with a dash of voyeurism, guests are welcome to explore, inspect, admire, ogle, and snark.
Exact locations are never revealed in advance. Prior invasions have popped up in an abandoned 1950s-era New York penthouse, a minuscule graffiti-covered studio, and a Shanghai opium den-inspired condo that once hosted a Notorious B.I.G video shoot.

7. Cléo de Mérode
A French dancer of the Belle Époque, Cléo de Mérode became renowned for her glamour even more than for her dancing skills, and her image began appearing on such things as postcards and playing cards. A particular new hairdo she chose to wear became the talk of Parisian women and was quickly adopted as a popular style for all.
In 1896, King Léopold II attended the ballet and saw Mérode dance. The 61-year-old Belgian King became enamoured with the 22-year-old ballet star, and gossip started that she was his latest mistress. Because the King had had two children with a woman reputed to be a prostitute, Cléo de Mérode’s reputation suffered, and she had to live with it for the rest of her life. Nevertheless, Cléo de Mérode became an international star, performing across Europe and in the United States. At the peak of her popularity, she chose to dance at the Folies Bergère, taking the risk to do something other elites of the ballet had never done before.
