For those who like life on the D-list

Beginning on Friday March 11, 2011, comedienne Kathy Griffin is performing her stand-up act on Broadway.  In “Kathy Griffin Wants a Tony”, this infamous D-list star breaks all the boundaries of typical Broadway shows. She continues to dish on all A-list star activities and news of the day. Kathy’s signature style of story telling and position as the so-called underdog makes the audience feel as though they are visiting with a best friend, a best friend with cool insider info. Her show is not confined to a time limit but can run anywhere from 90 minutes to 120 minutes. This show is a much more organic format and you know that the show you are seeing live is unique. An additional, rare treat of this type of format is the stage door experience. After the show, Kathy comes out of the stage door (the black gate on the left side of the main door you walk into) and will pose for photos and sign autographs for some lucky fans. Since the crowd will no doubt be enormous she will not get to everyone, but the graciousness she has will shine through and it will make you root for her even more.

Performance Schedule: Friday and Saturday, March 11-12 @8pm
Sunday, March 13 @3pm
Monday, March 14 @8pm
Tuesday, March 15 @7pm
Wednesday - Friday, March 16-18 @8pm
Saturday, March 19 @2 and 8pm

For Find Out Friday - Why Do Emery Boards Make My Skin Crawl?

You know that sound a fingernail makes when it scratches against a chalkboard?  You know that feeling the sound of that action gives you? I, like most people, hate that sound.  I instantly feel like scrunching my shoulders up to my neck and closing my eyes.  I feel the exact same way when I am using an emery board to file my nails. This annoying sensation has a name: “grima” which is Spanish for disgust or uneasiness. This term basically describes any feeling of being displeased, annoyed, or dissatisfied someone or something.  It is a feeling that psychologists are starting to pay more attention to as it relates to our other emotions.  Emery boards are traditionally made with cardboard that has small grains of sand adhered to them. It is the sandpaper that I believe makes me filled with grima.  According to studies that are being done around the world, it is not just the feeling that we associate with certain things like nails on a chalkboard or by using emery boards

For Find Out Friday - How Do You Milk An Almond?

Despite my affinity for cheese and other dairy products, occasionally (actually a few times a week) I like to go dairy-free.  During those times I rely heavily on my favorite brand of almond milk, as seen in the picture above.  Though I know there is no dairy in this product, I constantly wonder: “how does one milk an almond”? Logically I am aware that no actually “milking” is taking place.  I also know that almond milk can be made at home, although I have zero interest in attempting to make it despite my love of spending time in my kitchen. So, what is the actual process?  How long does it take?  When / where / who was the first to successful develop this product? When talking about this kind of “milk” what we are really talking about is plant juices that resemble and can be used in the same ways as dairy milk. Plant like juice has been described as milk since about 1200 A.D. The first mentions can be found in a Baghdadi cookbook in the thirteenth

For a Doughnut Worthy of Food Network Glory: “Dun-Well Doughnuts”

All because I wanted a Boston creme doughnut. That is how this blog truly began. It was Father’s Day weekend and although I was initially thinking of myself, I knew my father wouldn’t mind having a sweet treat for dessert. Brooklyn is synonymous with great pizza, bread, and of course bagels. But it also has many great bakeries producing some of the most delicious doughnuts you have ever tasted. Just to name a few, there is: Doughnut Plant , Peter Pan Donut & Pastry Shop and Dough .   On the day of my craving, I did what any of us do countless times a day - I opened Google. When I Googled “best Boston creme doughnuts in Brooklyn” Dun-Well Doughnuts appeared high on that list. Intrigued I researched it further and learned that it had won the Canadian  Food Network’s contest called “Donut Showdown” in 2013. That was enough information for me to decide to visit the very next day.  Dun-Well Doughnuts was opened by Dan Dunbar and Christopher Hollowell in December 2011. Despite
