Sweet Megg & The Wayfarers: Why This Jazz Band Finds Brooklyn Home

Sweet Megg

On first sight, Megg Farrell (frontwoman of the aptly titled Sweet Megg & The Wayfarers) may not appear to be a jazz singer. With her nose ring, considerable height, and youthful demeanor, she looks like she could just as easily be a member of a Bikini Kill cover band, rather than a purveyor of a more “old-timey” sound. Upon hearing Megg sing, however, one becomes easily swept into her aesthetics of banjos and rag-time, as frankly she has pipes like Billy Holiday.

When I was ten years old, I had a t-shirt with a stick figure drawing of a boy on it—the boy was running from circles with squiggly lines behind them, and the caption read, “Boys r stupid, throw rocks at them.” Seventeen years later, I faced a painting featuring the same stick figure, same caption at the Ross Art Group, a Midtown Manhattan gallery.

Cocktail lounges in Manhattan run the muck, with many of them having a dark presence with nothing really that outstanding to look at.  The Skylark is the exact opposite of that premise, as the location whisks you off to its 30th floor where you will see spectacular views of Manhattan with some tasty bites and unique drinks to make your experience truly one of a kind.

As another New York Fashion Week becomes a memory what remains in its wake is the fact that the fashion industry is, by some estimates, the second most polluting industry on the planet.  I mean, do we really all need new clothes every season? But on the last day of NYFW LIVARI made its debut.  A collaboration between environmental and feminist activist Alysia Reiner (award winning actress from Orange is the New Black), Claudine DeSola (celebrity stylist and founder of Caravan Stylist Studio) and Tabitha St. Bernard-Jacobs (designer of Tabii Just and Women’s March organizer), LIVARI is a zero waste, women-led, women-designed collection ethically made in New York.

Theater Review: “For Peter Pan on Her 70th birthday”

I don’t often recall Geoffrey the giraffe in the middle of a play. If you’re a child of the eighties, you might remember this congenial ungulate as the mascot for Toys R’ us toy stores.  I can vividly picture his star turn in the commercials from Saturday morning cartoons. Various happy children would embrace their joy-giving gadgets and sing, “I don’t wanna grow up, I’m a Toys R’ us kid. They gotta million toys at Toys R’ Us that I can play with.”  As the commercial ended, Geoffrey sat silhouetted on a bench, staring at the sunset and granting a warm embrace to a child. The campaign was genius. It encouraged kids to put items on their wish list and supplied adults with a heaping dose of childlike wonder.
