637 pages. 26 actors. 6 playwrights. 1 weekend.

And now for a little non-food talk...

On January 26th and 27th, Babel Theatre Project (I'm a proud board member!) will present its first readings festival, aptly titled Groundwork.

There will be three readings each day, all completely free, including new works by prior Babel playwrights Emily Young (The Calamity of Kat Kat and Willie) and Bekah Brunstetter (You May Go Now). There will be cool people (including, potentially, some (admittedly minor) celebrities). There will be yummy baked goods for sale (provided by yours truly).

And, on the 26th, there will be Babel's Winter Bash, our first fundraising event. Tickets will be $15 if bought ahead of time, $20 at the door. I'll be there, so you know it's going to be good times. Plus, there'll be lots of beer and some live music, both of which, depending on your tastes, may be more tempting even than my presence.

Both Groundwork and the Bash will be held at the 45th Street Theatre, Babel's current home.

For more details on Groundwork and the Bash, check out Babel's website. You'll be able to read descriptions of each of the six plays and buy tickets for the Bash.

So, what are you waiting for? Check it out!

Hello Queenie. Not to put too fine a point on it, but the classic MANHATTAN cocktail is made with Rye whisky. Bourbon was used after Prohibition when Rye became scarce. But I'm happy to say, the quintessential Rye whiskey, made in New York, is available once again.
