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. Hours are Thursday from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m., Friday from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Call 305-613-8039, or visit sd-farm.com.

Baby Boom Baby-This one-man show stars standup comedian Tommy Koenig, who shares his own baby boomer story through a series of parody songs in which he channels everyone from the Beatles to Lady Gaga; Comedy Central/National Lampoon, Koenig’s Baby Boom Baby has been called wildly entertaining, touching, and very, very funny! It has also been called well-written, high energy and invigorating. Koenig will bring his one man “‘musicomedy’- a flashback through our times and the music that defined them” to the Palm Beaches Theatre through May 15. Baby Boom Baby is Koenig’s story, told from his distinctly Baby Boomer perspective. He was born in Brooklyn, New York, in 1953, the year Rock and Roll was born. Raised in Rockaway Beach, the son of a musician who played with Glenn Miller during WW2, Koenig was greatly influenced by chance meetings with John F. Kennedy and later George Carlin, and mostly by what the Beatles brought – the influence of music on Boomers’ culture and personal choices. In Baby Boom Baby, Koenig recounts the years he struggled to keep up with the changing times, just missing Woodstock by a few miles; the rites of passage of College, Travel, Sex and Drugs; and the ever changing cultural and political landscape that music unleashed as it morphed from Disco to Punk to MTV to Rap and beyond. During the show Koenig channels dozens of well-known – and original – characters in a one man tour de force spanning 7 decades. With original songs and parodies spanning from Doo Wop to Hip Hop, Koenig’s impressions include Elton John, Billy Joel, Blondie, Prince, Tina Turner, Bruce Springsteen, The Bee Gees, the Eagles, among others. The play runs until May 15 at the Palm Beaches Theatre in Manalapan (formerly Florida Stage/Plaza Theatre). For tickets: palmbeachestheatre.org or by phone at 855-728-8497. Tickets for Baby Boom Baby are $40. For group rates (10 or more) call 561-362-0003. For more information http://babyboombaby.ning.com

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.

NEWS: Tri-County Animal Rescue is in great need of DOG WALKERS! We have several hundred dogs in our shelter, and they all need to be walked. PLEASE come in- Tues, Thurs, Fri, Sat, Sun-10:30am to 4pm—come and help.
Tri County Animal Rescue- 21287 Boca Rio R0ad-Boca Raton 33433-Phone: 561-482-8110 – www.TriCountyAnimalRescue.com
Personal Note: I just took the one Sunday “class” to learn their procedures. Sign up! It’s available at 8:45am every Sunday- It helped! I walked a couple of adorable, loving dogs today–it feels so rewarding to volunteer!
P.S. The dogs at Tri-County are dangerously low on canned dog food. Pedigree Chunky Chicken Canned Dog Food- Please help us by bringing in canned dog food to the shelter, as soon as possible.
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: firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
Contact to adopt your own dolphin: Harzen @Taras.org or 561-762-6473
