The Panties, the Partner, and the Profit

Wednesday, May 9th, 2018

Sketches from a reading of David Ives’ play, The Panties, the Partner, and the Profit: Scenes from the Heroic Life of the Middle Class, at the Lansburgh.  It’s another of Ives’ clever and amusing “translaptations,” and I look forward to seeing the full stage production during Michael Kahn’s last season.

 

New Castle Adventure

Saturday, May 5th, 2018

A weekend with my delightful daughter in the charming town of New Castle, Delaware, which neither of us had before visited, and in which we landed by sheer chance during the May Flower Market (proceeds benefit the town’s public parks and gardens).

Chocolatrium

Thursday, June 15th, 2017

How could we resist a visit to the Chocolatrium, where Cluizel manufactures its fabulous and fanciful chocolates? Its small museum offers exhibits on the history and production of chocolate and glimpses of chocolatiers at work; its workshop holds demonstrations and monthly chocolate-based cooking classes (in December the feature was a bûche de Noël); and its shop displays confections as if they were gemstones.

We spent a long time choosing gifts for friends and family, and it wasn’t until after returning home that I discovered Cluizel has a sister Chocolatrium in New Jersey.
