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 the Perfect Appetizer Dinner: “Morgan’s Brooklyn Barbecue”

Have you ever gone out to eat and wished that you just ordered a bunch of appetizers?  I have.  It is actually my preferred way to eat. I like to get a taste of a bunch of different things rather than one big plate. I am much more interested in the kinds of foods we eat as appetizers versus lunch or dinner. Desserts hardly ever register on my radar. At the beginning of this year, right before I was set to release my annual to do list , I stumbled upon a photo of the most beautiful plate of brisket nachos I have ever seen. I instantly wanted them. Naturally the establishment behind said nachos, Morgans Brooklyn Barbecue, earned a spot on my list. The week leading up to my visit all I could think about was “would those nachos be my entire meal or just my appetizer”? Sure I love all kinds of barbecue food: the ribs, the brisket, pulled pork, and don’t even get me started on those sides!! Any restaurant that serves mac and cheese, corn bread, and creamed spinach us

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
