NYC LIFE: Chocolates, Fairs, Carnivals and More
Warm up with an artisanal cup of hot chocolate this weekend at The Hot Chocolate Festival. If you love ceramics and odd art check out these two fairs. And who needs Aspen when you can head to Bryant Park’s Winter Carnival. And we had so much fun at The Transition Network’s holiday lunch this week featuring our pal and colleague Randie Levine Miller. And we’re still looking for talented Tomatoes for our Tomatoes Got Talent show.
Music and Lunch with TTN’s Fab Ladies
We had so much fun this week at the NYC Chapter of The Transition Network’s holiday lunch. Our friend and colleague Randie Levine Miller entertained the enthusiastic group, accompanied by acclaimed jazz pianist Jon Weber, and she knocked it out of the ballpark. The Transition Network is a wonderful inclusive community of professional women, over 50, whose changing life situations lead them to seek new connections, resources and opportunities. Lots of Tomatoes are already members and more should be! Get the details.
