Forever Plaid- At the Wick Theater in Boca Raton-Jukebox Musical Adds to Summer Fun-Go back to an era when Do-Wop, big hairdos, huge automobiles with fins and tight-harmony boy bands were all the rage. This delightful jukebox musical comedy by Stuart Ross is an homage to the “guy groups” like The Four Aces and The Four Freshmen and celebrates the “clean-cut” mentality of the 1950’s. The plot centers on four ordinary guys whose dream of recording an album is ended in a tragic bus crash on the way to the recording studio. The four are miraculously revived to perform the show that never was and cement their eternal friendship in the process while singing a host of popular songs of the era. “Each of the Plaids have his own character and personality,” says Director Steven Flaa. “I give them the basic structure, but they bring their own personal stamp to it. That’s what makes the show. It isn’t just four guys singing songs, it’s about their characters and the wonderful life they had even without stardom.” The musical is graced with a large variety of 50’s popular songs that includes Sixteen Tons, Three Coins in the Fountain, Perfidia, Lady of Spain, Catch a Falling Star, Gotta Be This or That, Heart and Soul and the Plaid’s signature song, Love is a Many Splendored Thing, all performed with a live band led by Resident Musical Director, Michael Ursua. The Off-Broadway sensation will run until July 24th, with performances Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings at 7:30 p.m. and matinees on Saturday and Sunday at 2:00 p.m. Tickets are $55; July 3 matinee offers a $100 option and includes a lavish gourmet picnic.

NEW RESTAURANT: COMING TO BOCA IN SEPTEMBER: JUNIOR’S DELI of NEW YORK
One of New York’s most beloved restaurants is officially coming to S. Florida. Junior’s, the iconic Brooklyn restaurant and bakery, is opening a location at Mizner Park in Boca Raton, slated to open in September, and taking over the former Ruby Tuesday’s spot. The 270-seat eatery will offer diners the option of eating inside or on the 120-seat patio. The restaurant will feature a full bar, a menu with more than 200 items, including classics like corned beef and pastrami, and a bakery and takeout area. Junior’s owner Alan Rosen’s grandfather, father, and uncle opened the flagship Junior’s in downtown Brooklyn on Election Day 1950. Once opened, the restaurant’s menu will offer what Rosen calls Brooklyn comfort food, from salad to sirloin steak. Of course, the heartbeat of the restaurant lies in its famous New York-style cheesecake. The cakes are made the same way they were made when Rosen’s ancestors opened Junior’s. “They hit upon this magical formula for cheesecake. The recipe literally has not changed, and how many things can you say haven’t changed in 65 years? It’s the blend of quality, history, and tradition that makes it so special,” Rosen said. The secret to the cheesecake lies in a simple recipe of cream cheese, fresh eggs, sugar, heavy cream, and a touch of vanilla. The batter is blended for a full 45 minutes to make it creamy; then the cakes are baked in a water bath in a rotating oven. The resulting cake is an iconic representation of New York at its finest.If you’re planning a trip to New York City, you can visit Junior’s in Times Square, Grand Central Station, and Foxwoods Casino (in Connecticut) — but a visit to the original Brooklyn restaurant is a trip back in time — and an original New York experience.

Cheers!

I JUST “ADOPTED” a wild dolphin–His name is “Wonder”- I received a “Certificate of Adoption”, a brief life history and color photograph of my dolphin–and a hard copy of the book “An Ocean of Inspiration”–The John Olguin Story. Each dolphin has its own Facebook page (and there are 300 yet to be adopted.) All this for only $30 + $5 for shipping in the U.S. ( Or, perhaps, just get a copy of this wonderful book for $15 + $3 for shipping in the U.S. ) This makes a gift that truly supports a great cause. (Note: You will be helping a dolphin scientist with further exploration, observation and research to help preserve these special mammals. Support the Palm Beach Dolphin Project- For info: email@example.com or 561-762-6473 Click here to watch this video of a dolphin show- CLICK HERE Note By Scientist, Explorer, Author, Dolphin Researcher-Dr. Stefan Harzan: If you have an opportunity to swim with dolphins…why not do it in the open ocean? There, the dolphins may stay close or have the freedom to swim away. It is so much better, because we meet them on their terms.

PALM BEACH COUNTY’S FIRST ORGANIC WINERY IS OPEN–Wines are free from additives and tannins so it’s less likely to make you regret downing an entire bottle the next day-At Sons and Daughters Farm and Winery, located west on Lantana Roa, there’s a tasting room and market retail space that offers guests a chance to sample the couple’s homemade wine made from fermented hibiscus flowers grown on their organic farm. Several taps also offer fruit-flavored kombucha including passion fruit, lemon, and ginger. Before it became Palm Beach County’s first winery, for many years the 17-acre plot of land was used as a commercial nursery; today there’s a pig and a few dozen chickens, and a rotating selection of seasonal organic crops that include figs, pomegranate, sorrel, banana, carrot, passion fruit, kale, broccoli, tomatoes, and okra available for purchase and also organic rice, turmeric, yuca, and edible flowers like hibiscus and nasturtium-Come try the early- and late-harvest hibiscus wine. While each pour a clear, blazing pink-red and have sweet and fruity notes, the early harvest offers a dryer flavor profile. Both wines pack a punch, as well-On a mission to create a sustainable organic farm that encourages the natural, symbiotic relationship between plant, animal, and man, they’re doing it while making some pretty good wine. Sons & Daughters Farm & Winery is located at 5926 Fearnley Rd., Lake Worth.
