My Hanukkah Hooplah Story (with 8 Nights of Cyberswag!)

hanukkahhooplah

When my kids were small, I initiated a tradition in our house of giving eight gifts over the course of the eight days of Hanukkah. I didn't have this tradition when I was younger, but I liked the idea of lighting a candle every night and giving my children a gift to unwrap to celebrate. It was easy to go into a toy store and pick up tchotchkes for less than $10 each, or even $1 each (at the Dollar Store). My children didn't ask for anything much in particular and they liked whatever they got. As the years progressed, I kept up the tradition of eight Read More

Giveaway: Forever Tango on Broadway

forever tango

My husband is a great dancer.  I found out as soon as we started dating and he took me to a small tango club in Greenwich Village called La Belle Epoque and came face to face with the real thing.  We were attempting to tango with professionals (or so they seemed).  Later he bought tickets to a tango production on Broadway where we witnessed the longest-running tango production in Broadway history. It wasn't something I'd have selected to see myself, but it was very compelling. That show was Luis Bravo’s internationally acclaimed entertainment Read More
