Fuerza Bruta Tonight!

NYRewind: 2/5 - For only $20 (tix norm about $75!), the show was fantastic!  Stunning visual and audio affects, especially the rhythm and flow of the show.  Very high energy, interactive,  and fun, "like at a gay party, but w/o all the paper waste", as Ben said, haha (thanks for coming with me).  If you like dancing wet and wild, this is a good show for you!

Valentine’s Day Chocolate Tour

It’s Valentine’s Day the best reason to celebrate and savor the sinful pleasures of chocolates on a walking tour. We’ve picked 4 excellent master chocolate makers in SoHo and the East Village to visit and they’re all close by. Purchase of chocolates additional. We’ll meet at MarieBelle, top-quality chocolates are only exceeded by their beautiful and colorful silk-screen designs. Next is Kee’s, one of the highest-rated chocolate shops according to Zagat, adding new intense Asian flavors. Third on our tour is Vosages, exceptional French chocolate truffles, often leading to lines out the door. And our last chocolatier is a surprise in the East Village, because this store is on a street with no sign, and the store has no sign either. Her specialty is a pretzel-covered chocolate shell encasing silky, creamy, sea-salted caramel.
