NYC LIFE: Hudson Yards, Dining In, Cabaret, Talent Show, and More
We agree with Sandi Durell that “If music was everywhere and in everyone’s life, the world would surely be a better place.” Fortunately, cabaret is alive and well in NYC and Sandi has the scoop. So what does Gael Greene eat on the one night a week when she’s not trying out new restaurants? She shares some of her favorite deli and neighborhood spots. Our sixth Tomatoes Got Talent show returns April 15 and tickets are on sale now! Below are highlights of a few events we think you might you enjoy including the grand opening of Hudson Yards on March 15.
March 3. Chocolates and Airplanes
From the first flights by biplanes on the Hempstead Plains to man’s walking on the Moon, Long Island has been on the leading edge of America’s aviation and space adventure. And tomorrow the Cradle of Aviation Museum in Garden City is also home to the Chocolate Expo. Vendors include artisanal chocolatiers, old-fashioned candy shops, bakeries, specialty food producers, wineries, distilleries, cideries and even some farms. And your ticket includes the museum exhibits too. Get the details.

Randie Levine Miller and Cheryl Benton are thrilled to be co-producing our 6th Tomatoes Got Talent show which showcases the talents of women over 40, who do not earn their living with their talents. Many started out as professionals and segued into other careers – we’ve had doctors, teachers, social workers, paralegals – who step onto the stage and become super stars.
