NYC LIFE: Broadway Shows & Dining, Swing, Chocolates & Diamonds
Chocolates, swing dancing and diamonds are just a few of the things happening in the Big Apple. If you’re looking for quick dinner before the theatre, check out Gael Greene’s review of food hall City Kitchen. Looking for some quick cash? Sell that jewelry you don’t wear. Valerie Smaldone says “The Great Society” is well worth seeing, but hurry – it closes at the end of the month. There are new must see exhibits of the Met and The Jewish Museum. And check out these highlights below.
Did You Know You Have A Friend in The Jewelry Business?
Among her many talents, Anne Akers (our 3T Health & Beauty editor), has a real passion for jewelry and for years has been associated with Empire Diamond, located in the Empire State Building since 1931. Empire will buy jewelry that you are no longer wearing or will convert that jewelry item into something you will really enjoy! And, of course, Empire is one of the City’s best sources for diamonds, gemstones, watches and specialty items. Learn more about Empire and contact Anne for an appointment, or ask to be added to the monthly mailing list. You can reach Anne at akersNYC@aol.com
