You Can Have a Witch Read Your Tarot Cards at This NYC Hotel — and I Tried It Myself

Travel and Leisure - 2 hours 24 min ago
<p>When I enter a hotel, I usually don’t feel nervous. But this time, as I walked into<a href="https://www.jameshotels.com/new-york-nomad/" target="_blank"> The James Hotel – Nomad</a>, a little shiver crept up my spine.</p><p>Unlike my <a href="https://www.travelandleisure.com/hotels-resorts/san-francisco-hotel-crawl" target="_blank">usual jaunts to hotels</a> around New York City to check out the bar or people watch in the lobby, this time I was heading straight to the penthouse to meet with a witch.</p><p>Yes, a witch.</p><p>This year, The James decided to truly embrace the spirit of the Halloween season by hosting a “Witch-in-Residence” at the hotel. Melissa Madara — said Witch-in-Residence and co-owner of <a href="https://www.catlandbooks.com/" target="_blank">Catland Books</a>, “Brooklyn’s premier metaphysical boutique," — was waiting to introduce me to the occult and give me a private tarot card reading.</p><img alt="The James Hotel Nomad "src="https://cdn-image.travelandleisure.com/sites/default/files/styles/1600x1000/public/1571410999/james-hotel-nomad-lobby-TAROT1019.jpg?itok=8CJiK6_7"><p>Riding up the elevator, I thought back to the previous tarot readings I’d had at gimmicky parties or themed nights at bars. Nothing about it ever felt <em>real</em>, I’d say, because I didn’t know the person who would be laying out my future for me. This time was different, and I <em>felt</em> that; Madara lives and practices this craft every single day. In fact, I’d walked past her shop many times on the way to my favorite bar to watch “RuPaul’s Drag Race” every Thursday or Friday night for the last four years. I was just never brave enough to go in - but that all changed this day. </p><p>When I got to Penthouse 1, I took a deep breath and knocked. Then, as casual as ever, Madara opened the door and let me into the suite. There were no crystal balls, no black hats or spiderwebs on the wall. It was just me and her — both dressed like every other New Yorker — sitting in a nice living room separated by two decks of cards.</p><p>Ignorant, I started with the basics before we jumped into whatever the cards had in store for me, asking “What is the occult?” As it turns out, it simply means what is hidden, and to each person that can mean something totally different, Madara explained. For her it came naturally; her mother had been involved, so she grew up in it.</p><img alt="Catland Books "src="https://cdn-image.travelandleisure.com/sites/default/files/styles/1600x1000/public/1571410999/Melissa-Madara-Catland-TAROT1019.jpg?itok=tBwnFJPA"><p>Like religion, this practice can be small or large, private or public, but for many, it’s simply just spiritual. In <a href="https://www.travelandleisure.com/travel-guide/brooklyn" target="_blank">Brooklyn</a>, it’s easy to get involved, and a trip to Catland Books in Bushwick is an easy introduction. In other parts of the country, it's a little more difficult to connect with the occult community. Enter: the perfect marriage of Madara and The James, teaming up to host private tarot card readings in the hotel every Wednesday for the month of October.</p><p>“What do you want to talk about?” she asked me while I shuffled the two decks. At previous readings this wasn’t a question asked; the reader just blindly told me what she found in the cards.</p><p>I rattled off the things constantly nagging at the top of my mind: money (duh), career, and health. And for the next 20 minutes we had less of a “reading,” per say, and more of a conversation about the things I was thinking and what the cards had to say about them.</p><img alt="Tarot Cards "src="https://cdn-image.travelandleisure.com/sites/default/files/styles/1600x1000/public/1571410999/tarot-cards-TAROT1019.jpg?itok=zepWjogv"><p>While I won't tell you how the cards think my credit score is going to do in the future (blah!), I will say I left feeling vulnerable with my mind turning (in a good way). Before, I’d simply been told “you have a good life,” and maybe “be careful with the next person you meet.” But Madara took the time to explain each card, how she interpreted it, and how it might (or might not) apply to my life.</p><p>That dream I have of opening a furniture store? Maybe put it on hold for a while. My Health? Up and down (which is true), but nothing serious (in the near future, at least). I was satisfied.</p><p>I may not be a witch, but I don’t need tarot cards to see that as hotels are working to make super tailor-made experiences for guests — we’re talking <a href="https://www.travelandleisure.com/food-drink/what-are-water-sommeliers" target="_blank">water concierges</a> and <a href="https://www.travelandleisure.com/hotels-resorts/hotels-for-muscians" target="_blank">in-room recording studios</a> — they’re also helping us take risks and explore areas outside of our comfort zones. And isn’t that the point of travel?</p><p>Had I not had the chance to visit The James’ Witch-in-Residence, I probably never would’ve stopped into Catland to get a true reading. But they made it easy for me, and now, when I’m unsure about something in life, I might just head to Bushwick to ask the cards again.</p><p>Until then, head to The James Nomad for “<a href="https://www.catlandbooks.com/events-calendar/2019/10/2/witching-wednesdays-at-the-james-hotel" target="_blank">Witching Wednesday</a>” and book a session between 15 minutes and an hour (prices start at $30). If that’s not enough, take “Potion Making 101” with Madara on Oct. 28 to “learn how to make your own take-home potion for personal spell-casting,” according to <em><a href="https://www.departures.com/travel/nyc-james-hotel-witch-residence" target="_blank">Departures</a></em>.</p>

I Found a Lightweight Bag Perfect for Travel — and It Converts From a Tote to a Backpack

Travel and Leisure - 3 hours 39 min ago
<p>How good does it feel to discover a hidden gem? Whether it’s something old you tossed to the back of your closet and forgot about or something new you barely thought about once you got it, falling in love with something is a terrific feeling.</p><p>Since first receiving <a data-ecommerce="true" href="http://www.baggallini.com/packable-backpack-tote/PBT495-BG-B0001-NS.html" target="_blank">Baggallini’s Packable Backpack Tote</a> to test out, the unassuming little bag has surprised me on several occasions, charting its path to the top of my favorite items list with each unexpected event. Originally, the compact bag came as part of the brand’s <a data-ecommerce="true" href="http://www.baggallini.com/getaway-carry-on-luggage.html" target="_blank">Getaway Travel System</a>, a comprehensive line of products designed to facilitate efficient and easy packing for all trips. The collection includes way more than my dear little backpack, and travel accessories like <a data-ecommerce="true" href="http://www.baggallini.com/medium-compression-packing-cube/MDC502-BG-B0908-NS.html" target="_blank">compression cubes</a>, <a data-ecommerce="true" href="http://www.baggallini.com/2-wheel-underseat-carry-on/RUS496-BG-B0001-NS.html" target="_blank">underseat carry-ons</a>, <a data-ecommerce="true" href="http://www.baggallini.com/clear-travel-pouches/CTP485-BG-B0001-NS.html" target="_blank">pouches</a>, <a data-ecommerce="true" href="http://www.baggallini.com/trifold-travel-kit/TRI486-BG-B0001-NS.html" target="_blank">toiletry kits</a>, and <a data-ecommerce="true" href="http://www.baggallini.com/cosmetic-pouch/COS484-BG-B0908-NS.html" target="_blank">various organizers</a> all work together to make packing as little of a schlep as possible.</p><p>After keeping the Baggallini backpack under my desk for a week or so, I ran into a bit of a work-to-happy-hour snafu: I had a clunky backpack with me at the office, but I was meeting friends at a bar after work, where I’d rather not have to carry something so bulky. So, I took out the Baggallini tote and started stuffing my belongings in, figuring I’d hit a natural stopping point before my regular bag’s contents were completely transferred. </p><p><strong>RELATED:</strong> <a href="https://www.travelandleisure.com/style/travel-bags/best-laptop-backpacks" target="_blank">The Best Laptop Backpacks for Travel, According to Frequent Fliers</a></p><p>That stopping point, however, did not come. In this small bag, deemed more of an “extra” than main carry-all, I was able to fit my 13.3-inch Macbook Air, my chunky spiral notebook, my hefty wallet (everything I own seems to be a tad larger than is necessary, I’m realizing now…), and a pair of extra jeans and shirt I had with me. And you know what? There was room to spare.</p><img alt="Baggallini packable backpack tote "src="https://cdn-image.travelandleisure.com/sites/default/files/styles/1600x1000/public/1571170557/baggallini-packable-backpack-tote-embed.jpg?itok=9xP_WrDF"><p>To buy: <a data-ecommerce="true" href="http://www.baggallini.com/packable-backpack-tote/PBT495-BG-B0001-NS.html" target="_blank">baggallini.com</a> and <a data-ecommerce="true" href="https://www.ebags.com/product/baggallini/packable-backpack-tote/378307" target="_blank">ebags.com</a>, $40</p><p>Once I discovered the Mary Poppins powers of this initially normal-looking bag, I started using it daily, switching between <a href="https://www.travelandleisure.com/style/travel-bags/best-travel-tote-bags" target="_blank">carrying it as a tote</a> or backpack depending on what I was doing and how much stuff I had with me. Most recently, the backpack-tote hybrid accompanied on a trip to Croatia, where the lightweight, weather-resistant material really shined during bike rides and hikes as the weather fluctuated from sunshine to rainstorm in the blink of an eye.</p><p>The main outer pocket provides convenient access to your smaller necessities, like wallet, chapstick, and sunglasses, but I also used the top zippered pocket for important items like my cell phone and passport. When this pocket is empty, its main function is actually to contain the rest of the bag. </p><p><a data-ecommerce="true" href="https://www.ebags.com/product/baggallini/packable-backpack-tote/378307" target="_blank">This bag is so packable</a> because it can fold into itself and get stored in this top exterior zippered pocket. Even though the bag’s material is thin and easy to stuff in suitcase crevices, the compact storage system makes it even easier to toss neatly into any other handbag or regular tote.</p><p>When in use, the bag’s design also features two side pockets if you need more compartments, and a sleeve is built-in to the back of the bag so you can slide it over suitcase handlebars if you’re in transit with <a href="https://www.travelandleisure.com/style/travel-bags/stylish-affordable-luggage-sets" target="_blank">multiple pieces of luggage</a>.</p><p>I know it sounds unfathomable that a bag so discreet could house this many functional elements, but Baggallini carefully crafted the Getaway Travel styles to lessen the burdens of travel and keep you prepared for any situation. You can opt for the packable tote in a universal black shade, which I have, or go for the eggplant color or gray-and-white midnight blossom pattern.</p><p>Make the most of your space — whether it be a work tote, a gym duffle, a suitcase, or anything else you carry day-to-day — by dropping <a data-ecommerce="true" href="http://www.baggallini.com/packable-backpack-tote/PBT495-BG-B0001-NS.html" target="_blank">Baggallini’s Packable Backpack Tote inside</a>. With one on hand, you won’t have to worry about discomforts associated with going to and fro anymore.</p>
