“The Mystery of Love and Sex” at Arts Garage in Delray; Arts Garage’s first play of the season puts a new spin on family drama bringing together a collection of characters rarely combined before. The story introduces us to Charlotte, who is now in college, and whose relationship with her childhood best friend is raising red flags with her parents. She’s Jewish, he’s black. So her parents have to scramble to keep up as Charlotte and Jonny’s sexual desires complicate everyone’s relationships in surprising, compulsive ways. “This play has tremendous cross generational appeal and takes place over a period of five years,” explained Genie Croft, the show’s director. “What I love about this play are all the emotions. While it is a comedy, it points out our own foibles and hypocrisies.” “This play brilliantly captures a young person’s journey of self-discovery and the effect it has on those closest to her,” says Croft. “Audiences of all ages will relate to the characters as they tackle these always evolving mysteries.” The New York Times called it “a … a perfectly wonderful new play…a tender and funny exploration of the lives of two couples from two generations….so packed with humanity that it seems infinitely larger, like a chart depicting the sexual and emotional anatomy of us all.” The play runs until October 30 with perforances on Wed, Thurs, Fri at 7:30pm; Saturday 8pm, Sunday at 2pm; Tickets: start at $35. Student Rush Tickets $10 cash, with ID, subject to availability- Arts Garage is located at 180 NE 1st Street Delray Beach, FL 33444; www.artsgarage.org 561-450-6357

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.

This place is intimate and chic, classy and seductive, unique and fun. Stop in for Happy Hour or have some sharable plates and handcrafted cocktails before of after the movies, or just to try it. Cheers!

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!
Try it! P.S. They desperately need gently used towels and blankets for the puppies
P.S. The dogs at Tri-County are dangerously low on canned dog food. Pedigree Traditional Meaty ground dinner with Chopped 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: 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.
Contact to adopt your own dolphin: Harzen @Taras.org or 561-762-6473

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 Road, 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.
