Richer than Rich at Davio’s New York

By: Finance Foodie

When I lived in Philadelphia for grad school, one of my biggest regrets was not hitting up Davio’s (even though I lived two blocks away). I had heard great things about this Italian Steakhouse so when they invited me to a special media dinner to celebrate their newest location that opened just last November by Grand Central – I just had to check it out.

Classic Italian at AppetitO Ristorante New York

By: Finance Foodie

Nestled within Manhattan’s Theater District, AppetitO Ristorante offers a traditional array of Italian dishes and cocktails in an “at-home” atmosphere reminiscent of the Italian countryside. When I found out this under the radar Midtown mainstay just celebrated its 22nd anniversary last year, I had to check this place out to reward my stomach after a long week of work.

Celebrate National Popcorn Day with The Popcorn Factory

By: Finance Foodie

National Popcorn Day is celebrated at the end of January, although its exact date is a matter of debate. Various sources report it as January 19; others claim it takes place on whatever day the Super Bowl falls on. The Popcorn Board is often asked about the origins of this day; unfortunately, they do not know how or when this celebration began.

The Smithereens At BB King’s: A Legendary Gig Gets Better Every Year!

By: Anne M. Raso

The third Saturday of every January marks a special event for Smithereens fans young and old---the legendary group’s annual show at BB King’s in Times Square. (This year it falls on Saturday, January 18th.) What makes the gig special is not only the intimacy of the space but the fact that this is the show the international ‘Reens fans fly in for from all continents; the foreign fans enjoy “meeting and greeting” with the New York tri-state area fans and often form enduring friendships! It’s also a show where the band pulls out many of their “deep cuts,” often speaking to fans in the weeks prior to the show about what they’d like to hear.
