In the Studio with 'Trip of Love'

by Tracy Kaler
I've attended my share of Broadway and Off-Broadway shows over the years, but last week, I sat in on my first in-studio rehearsal in New York, and I have to say it was pretty spectacular. Watching the company from the upcoming musical, Trip of Love, brought back fond memories from my years as an aspiring, young dancer when I spent countless hours rehearsing in the ballet studio.

Brooklyn's Good Old Days: 5 Things That Haven't Changed

THE BBQS
Straight from the outer boroughs
by Jerry Del Priore
Brooklyn's landscape has continued to shift over the past decade, but certain aspects of life remain the same.
As a native Brooklynite, I've been watching the borough change since my youth, dating back to the 1970s and '80s, and continuing through present day. Although gentrification of neighborhoods such as Park Slope, Fort Greene, and Williamsburg help define the “New Brooklyn,” certain aspects will always be the same no matter how much the landscape has transformed over time. While I can’t swing a stick without hitting a hipster these days, the following pieces of Brooklyn take me back to a time when life was simpler and purer.

Best burgers NYC
What's my idea of a great burger? For the most part, I'm a purist. Usually, I like my burger simple, with sautéed or raw onions, ketchup, and sometimes a slice of cheese if I'm in the mood, and always medium rare.  I'm not one to do a crazy burger thing with a melange of toppings coating a perfectly cooked piece of beef.
