The Week in Travel (5/11/12)

The world of travel moves fast!  Let’s keep up–together.  On Fridays, Traveling IQ curates the highlights from the past week:

Brooklyn’s Like Buttah

*Berlin’s new airport is grounded!  The opening date for the highly anticipated Berlin-Brandenburg International Airport (BER)  has been pushed from June 3 to an “after the summer break” undetermined date. (via USA Today)

*Hungover in Vegas? The “Hangover Heaven” bus will have you feeling better and back to the bar in no time.  On the bus, treatment can take less than an hour for a $90 basic IV of saline solution, B vitamins and vitamin C. A premium package, $150, includes two bags. (via Miami Herald)

*Pay your taxes or stay home.  A  measure approved by the U.S. Senate  authorizes the State Department, as instructed by the IRS, to take the passport of any American citizen with a back tax debt of more than $50,000.  The bill is still required to pass the House and the President, before it can become law.  (via San Francisco Chronicle)

*Klout & Cathay Pacific partner.  A Klout score of 40 or higher now grants you entrance to the Cathay Pacific First and Business Class Lounge at San Francisco Airport.  (via Code Nast Traveler)

*Brooklyn people are the luckiest people in the world:  Barbra Streisand will perform in her native borough for the first time evah! …at the Barclays Center on October 11. (via AOL.com)
