Coca-Cola keeps the summer cool and makes it hot for teens across the country as it kicks off the six-city, invitation only "Coca-Cola Refresh Your Flow Tour" featuring hip hop artist Lupe Fiasco today in Los Angeles.

Starting tonight in Hollywood, Grammy award-winning hip hop artist Lupe Fiasco will bring his hits, "Kick, Push" and "Superstar" to lucky teens, ages 13-17, across the country for an exclusive, invitation only concert tour created by Coca-Cola North America. The "Coca-Cola Refresh Your Flow Tour" opens today at the Avalon in Hollywood and will travel to some of the hottest venues in five other cities including: The Electric Factory (Philadelphia, August 3); The Tabernacle (Atlanta, August 8); Park West (Chicago, August 17); LOVE (Washington D. C., August 21); and, The Filmore at Irving Plaza (New York City, August 29). Up-and-coming artist Karina Pasian will open the show.

"The 'Coca-Cola Refresh Your Flow Tour' continues Coca-Cola's tradition of connecting African American teens with something they love - Coca-Cola and music," said Yolanda White, assistant vice president, African American Marketing, Coca-Cola North America. "Not only will each concert offer the teens an unforgettable musical experience, it will give each of them a taste of the Coke Side of Life - a moment in time that is refreshingly optimistic and uplifting. And, by engaging an artist like Lupe Fiasco, they will be encouraged to live on the positive side of life."
Tickets to the show are free and can only be obtained from partnering radio stations, participating retailers and Coca-Cola street teams traveling to teen hot spots throughout the cities. In addition, select Boys & Girls Clubs in each market will distribute tickets to deserving Club teens.

"I am looking forward to the 'Coca-Cola Refresh Your Flow Tour.' It's a unique opportunity for me to bring a message of positivity and what it really means to be cool," said Lupe Fiasco. "I hope it will be an unforgettable experience for every teen who attends."
The Grammy award-winning Lupe Fiasco came on the music scene in 2006 with the chart-topping debut single, "Kick, Push." He has been lauded by critics and fans alike for his clean, underground, storytelling rap style that is contrast to popular mainstream lyrics glamorizing materialism, sexuality and violence. His music is inspired by his love for Japanese animation, comic books, video games, art, literature and philosophy. MTV recently ranked him No. 7 on the list of "hottest MCs in the Game 2008." His highly anticipated sophomore album, "The Cool" was released in December 2007 and has garnered current hits "Superstar," "Paris Tokyo" and "Hip Hop Saved My Life."

Partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs 
The partnership with local Boys & Girls Clubs is part of a long-term national relationship The Coca-Cola Company has with Boys & Girls Clubs of America, the non-profit youth organization.

Where to Go For Spring Break? ResorTime. Com Names Top Ten Destinations

Where to Go For Spring Break? ResorTime. Com Names Top Ten Destinations

According to ResorTime. Com the top ten destinations for 2010 are Mazatlan, Lake Havasu, Las Vegas, Daytona Beach, Cabo San Lucas, San Diego, Maui, Orlando, Palm Springs and Sedona.

Carlsbad, CA (PRWEB) January 19, 2010

ResorTime. com, a popular source for on-line vacation and timeshare condominium rentals, says now is the time to start planning spring break vacations.

“For families and groups traveling together, renting vacation condominiums at timeshare resorts is becoming very popular,” says Sherri Weeks, General Manager of ResorTime. com. “Throughout our ten years in the resort rental business we’ve seen trends come and go. This year we’ve compiled a list of the top ten destinations for Spring Break. They include locales for families, young adults traveling together and boomers who just want to getaway from day to day routines in a spacious condominium in a great location.”

According to ResorTime. Com the top ten destinations for 2010 are Mazatlan, Lake Havasu, Las Vegas, Daytona Beach, Cabo San Lucas, San Diego, Maui, Orlando, Palm Springs and Sedona.

Mexico is the original Spring Break destination and with great airfares and top-of - the-line beach resorts there is no better place to enjoy the warmth of the sun, pristine beaches, local flavor and friendly hospitality that make Mexico a primo place to be in the spring. ResorTime’s resorts in Mazatlan and Cabo San Lucas (http://www. resortime. com/attractions/spring_break. aspx) are offering incomparable getaway packages including Fourth Night Free. “Our experience shows that four nights is the ideal time frame for a Mexico Getaway and we think that the three nights, plus one free is an opportunity that will be hard to pass up!,” says Weeks.

For the best spring break destination west of the Mississippi, travelers on a budget are flocking to Lake Havasu (http://www. resortime. com/attractions/spring_break. aspx). Pack your swimsuit at the top of your suitcase and load up on sun block because a Lake Havasu vacation is all about being outdoors and enjoying the water. Whether you will be boating, fishing, jet-skiing, kayaking, swimming or all of the above, people of all ages can make this one of the most affordable spring vacations ever. “At rates under $100 in units that sleep four comfortably, we figure that a sun soaked vacation can cost just $25/day per person,” says week.

“Another popular Spring Break (http://www. resortime. com/attractions/spring_break. aspx) destination (especially for families) are some of our classic Southern California resort properties where families can comfortably stretch out and relax together after enjoying all the local attractions such as SeaWorld, the World Famous San Diego Zoo, Wild Animal Park and LEGOLAND California®,” continues Weeks. “Among the favorites is Carlsbad Seapointe Resort (http://www. resortime. com/attractions/spring_break. aspx) which was just named the Best Family Resort in our 2009 poll. To make it easier on all our travelers we are offering great rates and free nights (with certain booking restrictions) during this popular travel time.”

“There are so many online booking sites, and timeshare condominium rentals are becoming more sought after every day,” she continues. “What makes us stand out in the crowd is the opportunity to rent for short periods of time, even one night at a time. We find that our guests from cooler geographical areas enjoy the ability choose to travel to warmer climates for short stays or extended periods very economically. And we also have a number of excellent ski resorts for those who prefer to extend their winter vacations through spring.”

Many resort condominiums come with full kitchens, laundry facilities and plenty of on-site activities for all age groups.

ResorTime. Com, rapidly becoming the go-to source for spacious condominium rentals, has hundreds of luxury resorts for nightly and weekly rentals that accommodate leisure, business and group travel. All ResorTime Hot Deals and Value Packages change on an ongoing basis.
