Lola Taverna is a place you just want to go to. Why? For so much but one thing that sticks out more than anything is their scrumptious take on Greek cuisine that I am still salivating over many days later.

New York has no shortage of nuts. No. Not the ubiquitous street vendors who sell warm peanuts, cashews, and almonds. (Although they certainly are a delicious treat!)  I’m referring to the number of productions of the 1892 ballet The Nutcracker.  Since the 1960s, countless ballet companies have staged the beloved story which offers a glorious score by Peter Tchaikovsky.

As Bette Davis uttered in All About Eve, “Fasten your seatbelts, it’s going to be a bumpy night.”  That sentiment can be shared with Joshua Ravetch‘s One November Yankee, the latest Off-Broadway offering at 59E59 Street Theaters.

The gambling market is strictly regulated in the United Kingdom and the UK GC does an excellent job at keeping it fair.

Top Chef has arguably been the biggest (and some might say greatest) culinary competition television program to ever exist. What once was a show that featured a mixture of home cooks, professional chefs and culinary students has now become a force to be reckoned with by including James Beard winners and many others at the top of their food game who all vie for the $100,000 grand prize. Some seasons of the Emmy-winning show did much better than others and stand out in our heads all this time later as ones that we want to watch again while others we wish never existed.
