It would be a lie if I said I didn’t like July. And this July is no different! As mentioned previously, we have THE Broadway Diva, Bernadette Peters, on our cover! Can you believe it? Ms. Peters, a New York icon graces our front page. She looks amazing and was even better to interview. But she isn’t on our cover for no reason. No, she has a cause célèbre – Broadway Barks. CoFounder of and dedicated to this once a year event, Bernadette received a Special Tony last month for her hard work to this cause. We can’t think of anyone else we’d rather have! In addition, we have Bob & Cortney Novogratz. This Dazzling Designing Duo who has taken New York by storm is also featured. With a top-rated show on HGTV, they are informing the still raising a large (seven children and counting) family. Talking about interior design, we have Amy Statuto, our new design expert. With a thriving business here in Manhattan she will be lending her advice (and her beauty to George Brescia for our style column) to the Resident. We thank her and think that this relationship will be a fruitful one. Resident wouldn’t be the Resident without our world-class travel editorial. From Papua New Guinea to Martha’s Vineyard; and everything in between – we’ve got it covered and explored! We love bringing our readers the best and hope that you use the content for planning trips or at least to day dream. We are also proud to announce our new alliance with Elvis Duran. Featured on the cover last month, he will be lending his expertise on music trends and must-listens. I think you will really enjoy and I hope you learn a little bit about today’s music. Dining, theater and fashion are also represented and just as strong! Take advantage and go see a wonderful play and head over to one of the several restaurants we have featured. You Lastly, I just would like to thank my staff (assistants and interns) for their hard work this month. Without you I couldn’t have done it. All of us really appreciate all of your effort. They allow me to look at the bigger picture and hopefully you will see the positive direction they are helping me bring to the Resident.

KENNEBUNKPORT Once just a quaint fishing village, Kennebunkport, Maine, is quickly becoming a vacation

destination for travelers seeking an easy-to-reach location, fine dining, countless activities and luxurious—yet affordable—accommodations. A simple four-hour drive from New York, Kennebunkport is an ideal weekend escape for those looking for a quick getaway. We pick some of our favorite spots in this beautiful jewel of the southern Maine coast. NATURAL LUXURY If you truly want to experience the beauty of Maine, but with all the comforts of a luxury hotel, it doesn’t get any better than Hidden Pond. Tucked away on 60 acres of birch and sweet fern forest, Hidden Pond has been referred to as “the Ritz Carlton of summer camps.” All of Hidden Pond’s beautifully appointed guest cottages feature flat screen TVs, air conditioning, wireless internet, screened porches, outdoor rain showers, Frette linens, fireplaces, and iPod docking stations. Two-bedroom cottages also include full kitchens which can be stocked with your favorites prior to arrival. In

addition, a daily breakfast basket will be delivered right to your door. At Hidden Pond, the hardest part of each day may be deciding what to do next. Wander meandering nature trails, or take a beach cruiser bike and explore Kennebunkport’s winding back roads. Go paddleboarding, learn how to build a bird house, or take a yoga class surrounded by nature at the Farm. Or for a true indulgence, book an appointment at the Tree Spa, nestled into the trees above the lush forest floor. If the beach is more your speed, head to Hidden Pond’s sister property, The Tides Beach Club, where “Beach Tenders” will be sure you have a plush towel, comfy chair and cooler packed with chilled water. They’ll even bring you lunch on the beach. Hidden Pond also features several onsite dining options, including Earth, a collaboration with Boston chef and James Beard Award-winner Ken Oringer. Earth offers farm-fresh ingredients grown on Hidden Pond’s own organic farm, along with local meats, seafood, and cheeses—all overlooking the pond and nightly bonfires. BEACH CHIC If you like the beach, The Tides Beach Club is the place for you. The only hotel overlooking pristine Goose Rocks Beach, The Tides is one of Kennebunkport’s true


The Grand also has a convenient onsite gourmet food and wine shop featuring a great variety of adult beverages, delicious prepared salads and sandwiches, and everything you’d need for a beachside picnic. Next door, Fringe Hair Art Salon and Day Spa offers hair styling, skin treatments and massage.

“grand dames,” and after an extensive rejuvenation last year, it’s also one of the ‘Port’s chicest resorts. The rooms at the Tides have a soothing seaside ambiance, mixed with surprising and whimsical contemporary touches. This same eclectic mix extends to the common areas, where traditional white wing back chairs and lamps made from sea shells sit side-by-side with “invisible” bar stools and modern art. The Tides has a fun, energetic bar, and also offers dining. Savor an after dinner cocktail while rocking on the expansive front porch, or dine outside on the patio, surrounded by the sights, sounds, and smells of the sea. Escape to the beach this summer…without the Hamptons traffic! A CLASSIC...ENHANCED Located in the heart of Kennebunkport’s lively Dock Square, the Kennebunkport Inn has always been a favorite because of its great location, outstanding service, and award-winning restaurant, One Dock. After a just-completed renovation, though, it’s gotten even better. Highlights of the renovation include a new lobby and common area, a sun terrace with outdoor fireplace and cozy deck chaises overlooking the Kennebunk River, and a new bar at One Dock. The changes also extend to One Dock’s menu, with a greater emphasis on small plates that showcase Maine’s abundant local seafood and produce. The Kennebunkport Inn is also a great place to stop by for cocktails, especially

during summer months, with a daily Happy Hour on the patio. IN-TOWN ELEGANCE Across the bridge in Lower Village is the ‘Port’s newest boutique hotel, The Grand. Though just opening this summer, the Grand already promises to be one of the area’s hottest spots. Located on Chase Hill, the Grand’s expansive windows and balconies provide sweeping views of the Kennebunk River and Dock Square. Elegantly appointed rooms offer a slightly urban feel, with soft, warm tones of Saffron and cream, chic furnishings and marble bathrooms featuring gleaming Waterworks hardware.

QUAINT & COZY CHARM Just outside of town are the Cottages at Cabot Cove, the quintessential New England cottage experience. Each of these uniquely designed cottages features a kitchenette and terrace, which is like your own private garden paradise. Take a rowboat or kayak to explore the Kennebunk River, or just hunker down with a picnic lunch or a good book in an Adirondack chair overlooking the Cove. SECLUDED SPLENDOR Down the winding back road from Cabot Cove is the Old Fort Inn. Once a grand hotel in Kennebunkport’s Cape Arundel, the original carriage house and stables have been converted into elegantly appointed, spacious guest rooms. Decorated in a traditional New England style, the rooms feature rich linens, custom wood furnishings, and four-poster beds. Outside, a spacious patio and heated lap pool feature plush chaise lounges, inviting you to soak up the summer sun. Old Fort’s Club House, with its collection of art deco books, deep leather sofas and floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace, is a great place to linger. For families looking to stay a while, a chic, three bedroom cottage is available for rent…a homeaway-from-home on Maine’s southern coast. This hidden gem is perfect for couples looking to getaway—tucked just far enough away to be a tranquil oasis, yet minutes from downtown Kennebunkport. Still wondering if you should book a stay in Kennebunkport this summer? Well, stop. Treat yourself.You won’t be disappointed, and the only downside is that you won’t want to leave this beautiful and lively town.

Bernadette Peters, Broadway’s Baby, has captivated generations of Americans with her thrilling voice, exquisite acting

that I had the opportunity to interview her, I was over-the-moon with joy and couldn’t wait to speak with her! I was so happy that I did. She was gracious, lovely and passionate about Broadway Barks, the organization in which she co-founded with Mary Tyler Moore and has just been honored with a special Tony for her hard work and dedication to giving back. Take the journey with us, you’ll be so happy you did!


Resident (R): I just want to start by saying that I’m a huge fan. As an Italian-American it is nice to see one of our own make it. And my mother remembers your family’s bakery.

you have it.

it’s on Saturday July 14th

R: Tell me, what exactly does it do, what is its mission?

R: And who is it? Like the Humane Society or ASPCA?

BP (Bernadette Peters): Thank you that means a lot. Yes, my father had a bakery, but it wasn’t the famous one. He did, however, have his own business delivering Italian bread.

BP: groups worked together. And now there is something called the Mayor’s Alliance, so now they work together all the time but that

BP: Yes. They both come, the Humane Society comes, ASPCA is one of our big sponsors. We have Bidawee and all of the big ones.

their own trying to make a difference, trying to help, trying to do something.

R: Bidawee? We work with them, as well as ASPCA – that’s great!

R: So when you say they worked together they raised funds?

BP: Yes! We also work with small rescue

R: Tell us about Broadway Barks, how did it come about? And what is your involvement with it? BP: I was in Annie Get Your Gun. We had for Gypsy of the Year for Broadway Cares. So we thought, what else could we do? So I said how about animals? Because I had everyone thought that would be great. My assistant Patty Sacente, and Richard Hester who was our stage manager, said we could get everybody from the shows and have the event in the alley between shows, and have an adoption event. So that’s what we did and this year it will be our 14th year. And I knew I could get my friend, Mary Tyler Moore, involved because she loves animals, and there

BP: No, it is just to work together to raise awareness for these animals that are in the shelters and how great they are and how they are being euthanized and how these wonderful animals need our help. And now it’s a big, big adoption event and I run into people on the street and they say “Oh we got him or we got her at Broadway Barks”, so people know to come to Broadway Barks to get a dog.

we have Greyhound rescues, Great Dane rescues, this year we are going to have Cocker Spaniel rescues, we can’t believe the amount of Cocker Spaniels that come through the system. R: And you got your dog, Stella (the dog featured on the cover), from a rescue? BP: Oh yes, she actually came from the city shelter.

R: So is it a once a year event?

R: What breed is Stella?

BP: Yes, it’s usually every July and this year

BP: She’s a Pit Bull. The American Pit Bull

Terrier used to be the family dog that the children at the turn of the century played with. Now people just associate them as these terrible dogs, but they’ve really been victimized because they’re so amenable and they’ll do anything for you. Because these me and I’ll love you and because they’re very physical animals, they were very good at it. R: How many dogs and cats were adopted at the event last yeat? BP: We did very well, each shelter brings at least four dogs and I’d say three out of four get adopted.

is from the Bronx, I’m really a Jersey boy, but tell me about what it means to be a New Yorker BP: There are so many different areas in the city that could change your mood. I used to go down to the gym in Soho, when Soho was really coming up and it was like I’ve changed the atmosphere around me, I’ve changed the molecules and when I came back, I was refreshed. There are so many great parts of the city, even Williamsburg is so cool.

BP: Everybody is welcome to come on Saturday July 14. We are on Shubert Alley.

But Manhattan itself, I grew up in Queens but I couldn’t wait to cross the bridge and come into Manhattan because it was just so wonderful and so interesting and the theater is incredible. This season there is so much to see, so many great performances; I saw Death of a Salesman twice.

R: On another note, you grew up in Ozone Park?

R: So continuing this theme of New York, how is it to be a New Yorker and own a pet?

BP: I did, where did you grow up?

BP: Very easy. I live in an apartment, the dogs don’t live outside, they have to go outside and you take them out to enjoy the walk, the weather, the park. Then you have a

R: Manhattan and New Jersey, but my mother is from Borough Park and my Dad

There is somebody to be responsible for and to care for; they’re so important in so many ways. R: And what section of the city do you live in? BP: I live on the Upper West Side. R: What do you like about it? BP: I live near Riverside Park and I like how it is family orientated up here; people have families and dogs and it is easier to get to the theater from up here, lots of lovely restaurants and Central Park. R: Is there one particular role that you loved the most? BP: I’ve been so lucky that I’ve been able to explore, really wonderful roles, interesting experiences that the characters go through,

There’s no place to own like a Dune Resort

The ultimate mecca for adventure below the surface. There’s a reason that intrepid travelers are smitten with Papua New Guinea: The tourists are few and far between, the locals are superbly friendly and the jaw-dropping scenery doesn’t hurt group of islands, just north of Australia, is still a little known destination among Americans. In other words, if you choose bragging rights. The cultural diversity of this remote corner of the world appeals to many, but what tops the list for the waterloving crowd, no doubt, is the diving

and snorkeling. Papua New Guinea is known for its staggering biodiversity and scientists continually discover new species here. With that said, if you’re lucky you might spot the rare thumbnailsized pygmy seahorse or the snub-nosed dolphin. I certainly kept my eyes peeled for rare creatures during my stay at Tawali Resort where the star of the show is the pristine reef. Located on a volcanic bluff overlooking the protected waters of Milne Bay, this private resort is only accessible by boat and attracts divers from around the world.

A Guest Room in the Hamptons

“It is always nice to add thoughtful touches to help your guests feel at home. Include things that they may have forgotten to pack.�

Resident July 2012

Summer is here, and with it, house guests. Here are some helpful tips for your guest room that will make all your visitors feel right at home. Create a room for guests that will help them feel truly welcome. Too often the guest room is an afterthought. A dumping ground for your worn furniture and off season items in need of storage. Instead, create a space for guests where they feel comfortable. A sanctuary lending itself to the experience of truly being away at the beach. Use a neutral palette with a touch of color. Turquoise is the perfect accent for the beach. Think serenity with a pop. Keeping a guest room primarily neutral allows for various different guests to feel at home. If there is too much color then it may appeal to some but not to all. The trick is to design a room that appeals to all so that all feel relaxed and comfortable. It is always nice to add thoughtful touches to help your guests feel at home. Include things that they may have forgotten to pack. In this room a basket with natural sleep remedies and sleeping masks was placed next to the bed, a selection of new tooth brushes was placed in the bathroom, even an assortment of sunglasses were put on the writing desk. These little details make a huge impact and help your guests feel more comfortable during their stay with you should they forget a few essentials. Remember, you want your guests to enjoy their experience of staying with you. So create a thoughtfully laid out guest room that is well stocked. Making the space a comfortable sanctuary will not only make them feel welcome, it will also help give you some down time as they will never want to leave their room.

A Hampton’s Hot Spot By Deeqa Rafle The Perfect destination for summer dining is what Navy Beach can be referred to as according to The New York Times. Located on two-hundred feet of pure, private beach, Navy Beach is great for outdoor and indoor dining for all hours. Navy Beach has a laid back atmosphere in which boaters are more than welcome to leave there watercrafts unattended, as it is protected by the Fort Pond Bay, and come on shore for a relaxed, coastal-themed dinner. With beach-inspired décor, enjoy your meal on white picnic tables on the sand, hang out in the white and blue striped furniture, or get that perfect tan you’ve been waiting for on their exclusive sun beds. While relaxing on this luxurious furniture, feel free to choose any of the classics off the never-ending menu such as: Navy burger with bacon, marmalade, onion, Cabot cheddar, house pickles and fries. You can also pick from Buttermilk fried chicken, with cheddar cornbread, house-made coleslaw and honey drizzle or light items like hearts of palm, tuna tataki salad with tatsoi, yuzu-soy vinaigrette or grilled shrimp with arugula, avocado, sweet corn and argrumato vinaigrette. To quench your thirst choose from an array of signature drinks such as: Captain Jack with rye whiskey, Aperol Spritz with Aperol, St.Germain lime and ginger beer, prosecco and fresh orange, and La Tigresa with vodka, agave syrup, basil and watermelon.

Relax at Solé East By Narbeh Minassian Any New Yorker knows immediately from the name exactly what to expect from a resort located in the Hamptons, so you may have to forgive me for excluding a plethora of adjectives and superlatives that could be applied to the eastern reaches of Long Island. In the Sole East Resort and Sole East Beach, you have two highly recommended places that provide the perfect opportunity to take advantage of the area. Sole East Resort and Beach are located near and in Montauk village respectively, and welcome visitors with a wide variety of tastes in vacation pastimes. This these are best experienced in the summer season. To be sure to stop by Montauk Harbor, complete with boats pull up at. Mountain biking and hiking are also an excellent choice of activity, the area is home to plenty of expertise and lovely scenery to boot. Coming back to aquatic opportunity, kayaking and stand-up paddle-boarding are particular specialties. For those who prefer a less intense use of vacation time, the world-renowned for beginners and intermediaries alike. Or if that still doesn’t appeal to you, try equestrianism at the Deep Hollow Ranch or at Rita’s Stables for a true taste of the high-life. Both have petting zoos suitable for children. Wine connoisseurs and wannabe connoisseurs will take delight from Long Island’s wineries. Both Resort and Beach offer the full luxury of their rooms, all renovated, with high thread count Italian cotton linen. To maximize the pleasure of your stay, I recommend the Resort’s poolside and garden cabana suites for outdoor comforts. Technology cravers can

rest assured that all rooms are equipped with HD, complimentary Wi-Fi access. The resort boasts an outdoor, heated pool amidst 2.5 acres of landscaped gardens; the vastness of ground to cover is alleviated by hammocks dotted around, or you may prefer to explore on top of a beach cruiser. Pool parties are organized, with a DJ in charge of the music. Sole East Beach, of course, is focused around the Long Island coast and is a short walk away from white sands and clear water, but at the same time it is right in the heart of town, so you can taste the best of both worlds. Experiencing all that the locations have to offer will no doubt leave you feeling hungry, and for that, look no further than Sole East’s very own Backyard restaurant, where you can sit poolside to the sounds of Bosa Novo. This restaurant takes special pride in its Sunday brunch and is well worth a visit. Whether it is Beach or Resort, Sole East presents the Hamptons in its full glory. There is something for everyone here; it is simply the perfect getaway without

Polo Style

In mid-July, the summer social season in the Hamptons culminates for the opening of the annual Bridgehampton Polo Match that lasts for 6 weeks. Every Saturday from 4-6, the social set takes time away from the beach to socialize, party, sip champagne, and maybe watch a few horses. While guests spend more time checking out each to strike that perfect balance of casual and chic.

The same goes for men, it’s the one time pastels can be mixed and matched without a shade of black or grey. Colored chinos or white denim paired with pastel linen shirts and a navy or seersucker blazer will be cool even in the blazing sun. The only requirement is no socks, the only thing between your feet and a pair of suede driving mocs is a thin layer of Gold Bond powder. Balance volume-pair maxi lengths with slim camisoles, or peasant blouses with slim pants or a mini skirt, and pick the length you love and make it your own, whether its shorts, or cropped capris, minis to maxi dresses. Wedges- This match takes place on a farm and wedges vs thin stilettos are the perfect way to provide height and comfort when trudging along over dirt and grass. Jute colored espadrilles, wooden platforms, or cheerful print wedges add the perfect burst of color. Lea has the perfect assortment of exquisite semi precious and multi colored diamond jewelry in gold and platinum that are inspired by her summers spent in Nantucket. Keep your cool with oversized colorful frames and a wide brimmed hat. Although this side of the pond dons headwear at polo matches and horse races, it’s considered a faux pas at polo matches in the eyes of our Anglo neighbors.

Because of the show we have a lot of retailers who asked to work with us. But, we chose to go with CB2 because it’s really a perfect marriage between partner with them. They have had designers design pieces for them, but we’re the actual really household name across America. We felt that a partnership like that would help us, other than just being a name on the shelf. We did a rug, which has “family” written Resident (R): Tell us a little bit about yourselves, how did you get into business, interior decorating architecture design, how did that happen? Bob and Cortney Novogratz: We’ve been together twenty years and before we even got married, we bought a distressed building, turned it into our home and renovated it ourselves. And that is how we started our career. We did that for a while and then of course friends and clients and people started asking us to do their own homes and then someone asked us to design a hotel and so it just kind of evolved.

By Alexander Berki Modern New York is often seen as a mixture of people from different cultures and nationalities. One may be in the chicest nightclub in the city and catch a glimpse of an A-list celebrity sitting at the next table over from some unknown hipster from Williamsburg. What brings these people together is common interest of food, music or simply a good time. They may not even address each other let alone be acquainted, but they are at least in the same venue at the same time. However, the social world of New York during the Gilded Age was very different from what we know today. Before the Civil War and the boom of the Industrial Revolution, the only way to be assured a position in New Yorks’ fashionable society was by birth. This collection of families who were able to trace their lineage to the founding Dutch settlers of Manhattan became known as the Knickerbockers. Named for the knee breeches their ancestors wore, they were proud of their heritage and lived rather conservatively in their townhouses around Washington Square. in their traditions and continent in being so. Reconstruction would bring an end to their social way of life. As the South fell so did the exclusive world of the Knickerbockers. Antebellum planters left the ruins of the postwar South to join those men who were amassing great fortunes in the North as Masters of Industry and Barons of Wall Street. The high stakes gabbling of the 1860’s made men into millionaires over night; it would only be a matter of time before these “nouveau riche” would storm the fortress of “old New York.” As the cities wealthy population grew, it became clear to some of New York’s old money that the newly wealthy would not be able to be kept at bay for long. Enter one Caroline Webster Schermerhorn Astor. Born into New York’s Dutch aristocracy, Caroline was descended from the extended Dutch settling Schermerhorn family whose wealth came from shipping. At the age of twenty-two she wed William Backhouse Astor Jr., the grandson of John Jacob Astor who

With the rapidly growing population of Manhattan making its way uptown, society began to abandon Washington Square and move north up 5th and Madison Avenues to an area on the outskirts of town known as Murray Hill. In 1856, William and Caroline built a four-story mansion in the newly fashionable, yet conservative,

Ruling over New York’s society was a daunting task, which entailed Caroline to enlist the aid of Ward McAllister to be her guiding force. Samuel Ward McAllister was a southerner from Savannah, Georgia and was a cousin of the Astors, by marriage. McAllister set out to make himself the “tastemaker” of New York’s high society. With his alliances with old southern families, his link with the Knickerbockers and the ability to recognize the power of the newly found industrial wealth, he established a group of people and

Ironically, it was also the New York City being the ever-changing place that it is, would eventually bring an end to “The Four Hundred.” Over the decades different scandals would shake its foundation to the core, and the then see that there was little that kept them in a common social setting.

The lavish double CD set, “Bill Evans at the Top of the Gate” (Resonance Records), captures an outstanding performance with Eddie Gomez on bass and Marty Morell on drums. The CDs have pristine sound, thanks to the exceptional engineering of the original performance by George Klabin (who was then a student at Columbia University and head of the jazz department at the college’s radio station). The set contains a 28 page booklet with essays by Nat Hentoff, Gary Burton, Eddie Gomez, Marty Morell, George Klabin and Raphael D’Lugoff, photos and historical documents.

Everyone knows that summer is about lounging around the pool with your friends while enjoying tons of cocktails and eating fabulous BBQ! However, the most important thing you must have to enjoy your summer is an amazing play list to really set the mood. Here are my top five picks for the hottest songs of the summer:

Cher Lloyd “Want U Back” Cher is already a huge artist in the UK where she placed third on the seventh season of “The X Factor”,but she is now starting to make her impact across the pond! Her song “Want U Back” is making power to become her big crossover hit. It’s bubbly, fun, and just makes you want to mimic her sexy grunting noises by the end of the song! UH!

P!nk “Blow Me (One Last Kiss)” last year and guess what? She is back and better than ever! Her career has taken a new turn since her comeback in 2008 and I absolutely love her new sound. She is at the top of her game and this new single shows P!nk doing what she does best, rocking out without any regrets!

Pitbull feat. Shakira “Get it Started” This song is muy caliente! Shakira and Pitbull are no strangers to “Elvis Duran and the Z100 Morning Show”. We love them both and the two together have probably made my favorite song on this list. With a sick synth-pop club anthem, Shakira and Pitbull have a guaranteed hit on their hands!

The Wanted “Chasing the Sun” The Wanted are very good friends of our show and actually came out to surprise me and perform at an event we had the talent and sex appeal (hello lady!) these boys have. With their second single, “Chasing the Sun”, we hear something different- an infectious Eurodance track, not yet heard on around for a while. These guys manage to show us not all boy bands are created equal.

Carly Rae Jepsen feat. Owl City “Good Time” Now y’all thought my girl Carly Rae Jepsen was going to be a one hit wonder after the massive pop culture success of “Call Me Maybe” right? Wrong! If you thought this girl couldn’t pull off another hit then get ready to be surprisingly mistaken. This song takes both artists quirky talents and gets them out of their comfort zones to create one smooth pop sound destined to give Carly Rae Jepsen and Owl City another number one hit! Now that’s how you have a “Good Time”!

Summer vacations are one of the highlights of our year but our budget is challenged. Nowadays more than ever we are hearing about“stay-cations”. Can mommy marketing and stealth planning ensure a successful family “stay-cation”? Consider family dynamics as you embark on your planning. Teenagers are very skeptical about “stay-cations.” They would rather do nothing with their friends than go on a local family outing. Little kids often struggle without their usual routine. And in-between kids are not fun unless most of the time is spent doing what they like. It’s all about the marketing! Start by saying – this year we are going to have a vacation adventure close to home. We can do all the things we can’t usually do and with our favorite family members. Here is how we are working it out with our four children aged eight to fourteen: best coupon deal(s) wins a $20 Apple iTunes gift card. Coupons are everywhere. We use Groupon plus there are coupons for local hotspots in libraries, grocery stores, online and really everywhere if you are looking. Search out coupons for restaurants, hotels and special outings such as theme parks, ziplines, water parks etc. Have a few $20 gift

great deals. Restaurant Roulette – each person selects a few places they really want to go, especially outdoor restaurants. Even if the places are not known by name, they can specify pizza, Chinese, Thai etc.. Put all the choices in a hat and take turns choosing. Stay at least one night in a hotel with a pool – whether it is indoor or outdoor is less important. Little kids love to order room service and sit and watch a movie eating their food. Most family hotels have kids menus and kids clubs now. Stretch out the hotel experience. Arrive early and if you can’t check in, enjoy the amenities such as the pool or drop your bags and hit a restaurant. Use those kids clubs to steal some adult time away. Taking the E-reader plunge and take turns with each person reading a special summer book. Embrace the new technology as your How crazy is that! Let them bring their electronics. Today’s kids carry them morning to night – set reasonable limits but accept they are coming. Let your child teach you one new thing on your device. One of my kids installed the Emogi app so I can add colorful smiles and hearts to my texts and emails.

Create fun, learning jobs. Let your child be the navigator – use your phone and let him/ her instruct you step by step.They learn geography and modern day map reading. Other jobs can include journal writer, photo taker and agenda master. Be loose with cash if you can. Try to focus on all the things you can do – don’t emphasize all the limits. How you project it is how they will see it. Buy the large ice cream and eat it walking through a beautiful place such as a garden, park or lake. Try to say yes to the little things they ask for. Bring your fun self. You are building lifetime memories so just smile and introduce you newest idea – “doubling down on delight.” Give everything a fresh and catchy theme and some might become family traditions. See things through their eyes. All “staycations” should include eat, play, swim, laugh, outdoors and fun people. “Staycations” should not include yelling under any circumstances. Kids are tough and for the most part ungrateful but don’t give in and be the yelling parent on the vacation. These days will become their fondest memories. Be vigilant for the moment when you catch them laughing and smiling, capture it – this is what you will remember. And don’t forget the

A Symphony At

Zutto So what’s new in the Tribeca dining scene? If you happen to live in the “triangle below Canal Street” and was complaining about dining, Zutto may be your savior. Renovated not too long ago, this Japanese American Pub with a history of more than thirty years continues to bring surprises to diners from the neighborhood and the entire New York City area. Based on a completely new concept, Chef Joshua Smookler has turned the restaurant into a unique izakaya-like pub that serves not only traditional dishes like sushi, but also authentic Japanese drinks like sake. And on

Zutto’s sushi is full of imagination top of that, he brings in eccentric dishes with an American twist. Sounds interesting? Let’s explore more!

Eccentric Dishes with an American twist

Zutto’s must-order appetizer is the Pork Belly Bun, steamed bun stuffed with pork belly. But wait, it’s not just that simple! The secret lies in the special miso-mayonnaise that offsets the richness of the pork. Just one bite, the softness of the puffy bun together with the juicy pork belly immediately melts in your mouth and melted my heart away. If you are courageous enough, try the spicy miso soup. With its mouthwatering chili oil, this aggressive bowl with red miso and pork minces will surely excite your taste buds to the fullest. Although everybody was talking about their Ramen recipe which claims that “up to 120 lbs of pork bones are boiled in a 24-inch pot at the highest heat for about 24 hours”, I decided to try something else. After all, it takes more than one dish for a restaurant to be a guru. And I wasn’t disappointed at all. Their small plates are phenomenal as well. Ebi Mayo is a popular dish of fried shrimp served with yuzu mayo and a lemon quarter. Squeeze the lemon on top of the crispy and tender shrimp and enjoy its freshness in your mouth. And how can we forget about Foie Gras – a whole piece of seared foie gras sitting on top of a piece of soaked brioche. With roasted onion layers spreading like lily

By Jackie Yin petals and pomegranate seeds decorating a crimson band of sour-sweet pomegranate sauce, the delicate plating is a feast for the eyes. I cut a small piece of everything and put it in my mouth… I was in heaven. Zutto’s sushi is also full of imagination: Tribeca – spicy tuna, avocado and caviar

in a triangle, Miami – salmon, salmon row, avocado and kaiware sprouts, Gulf of scallion and cucumber with spicy mayo, the list goes on and on. My experience at Zutto was unforgettable. After all, who can resist to be pampered with top-notch delicacies in the dim candlelight? Just sit back and relax, and let your taste buds fantasize.

OTH BOLD AND BRIGHT COMBINATION OF COLOR STRIPES on the wall, the interior of Orchard House best represents the style of the restaurant – imaginative dishes that send you on a ride of rich gastronomic waves. Situated on the historic Orchard Street in the Lower East Side, The Orchard House brings continuous surprise to the community with its fresh brand of modern American plates, original cocktail creations as well as a vast selection of wine and tea. With the sound of smooth jazz, I started my dinner with the Sage Lady. With a slight cheered me up with its light and warm taste. But the best was yet to come! Based on a belief that dishes are made to be shared and for fun, The Orchard House crafted its menu between small and large plates. Always a fan of fried pickles, I decided to try out what tricks they can do to this simple starter. I have to say I was absolutely impressed. Guess what was served with the pickles? Whipped sheep’s milk ricotta, sweet onion and drizzled dill! Take a bite and experience that magical moment when the sourness of the pickles, followed by the sweetness of the onion, is smoothed out by the subtle taste of the doughy ricotta, ending on a slight minty note of the dill. Their griddled lamb sliders are just phenomenal. The lamb is prepared to its of scallion mayo triggered the succulent cucumber added a naughty twist to the experience. dishes, I headed for a seafood delight – Crab Cakes. Glittered with a thin layer of basil oil balsamic glaze, the crab patty sat on top of a generous amount of aioli sauce in the center of a decorated long plate. The cake had a vibrant taste with its abundant crabmeat, brash enough but also not lacking sophistication thanks to the lemon garlic aioli. For a large plate, I picked the roast striped bass. When the aroma of port wine met be more perfect. The sauté crispy vegetables were absolutely a bonus. Another large plate that I would like to recommend is Ricotta Gnocchi that comes with wild mushrooms, brussels sprout leaves and oregano cream. The warm gnocchi enjoyed a played well with the saltiness of the mushroom in the aromatic oregano cream. Although I couldn’t try everything, I knew that The Orchard House would become a favorite of mine. Its edgy interior design and varied menu with something for everyone will surely make this modern American restaurant a vibrant spot in the neighborhood.

As special and obviously unique as the Olympics are for London, there are numerous sporting events that take place every summer in London. Ascot Racecourse, found just outside London in Berkshire, is home to the country’s most illustrious horse races and has traditionally been so since the early eighteenth century. This is more than just horse racing however, as visitors come dressed according to the height of elegance and can enjoy luxury service and champagne. However, the signature sporting event of London’s summer is of course the Tennis Championships in Wimbledon. Tickets for this can be steep but you need

not fear as the big screen outside the stadium makes up the focus of the large crowd that gathers on ‘Murray Mountain’ (formerly known as Henman Hill), named after the British number one, Andy Murray. London’s east-end is home to the Olympics and known for its rich history and cultural depth. The aforementioned London 2012 festival has organized ‘Stories of the World: At Home with the World’ in Liverpool Street; with the world coming to London, this event London and how household ‘English’ things may have originated from elsewhere.

By Narbeh Minassian To quote a popular English saying, the Sterling Renaissance Festival does what it says on the tin. A summer of fantasy, adventure, and family fun starting on the weekend of July 7th, this attraction offers something to you that museums and books can only offer to your imagination. A carefully reconstructed Elizabethan village spanning wooden time-machine, complete with pubs, jousting arenas, more than 15 outdoor stages, and royal residences. The occupants of Warwick village are comprised of professional actors performing roles up and down the Elizabethan social hierarchy; from lords and ladies to beggars and wenches, you may even be lucky to come across Queen Elizabeth herself as she ostentatiously strolls through her Queendom. With this, the illusion is set. From illusion to experience, the village is brought to life by the various performances running throughout the summer. The festival boasts a forty member professional company, showcasing skills in swordplay and jousting, which are two quintessential Elizabethan spectacles. Daredevils put their bodies on the line in feats of balancing skills and heights, with some risky sword-handling thrown in (literally) for good measure. Of course, Renaissance England wouldn’t be Renaissance England without many a musical and dance act on almost every other corner, which includes the unmistakable sounds of the Celtic bagpipes and a regularly-staged comedy show. The English may not be known for their food these days but back in the 16th century they were one of the leading culinary pioneers, and the festival does not hold back in providing the chefs capable of emulating their Elizabethan predecessors. Specialties include succulent Turkey leg, her Majesty’s steak-on-a-stake, lighter fare, and desserts. English pub, and Warwick village does not disappoint. And like a true English villager, you can enjoy all this even in weather most English. As an English Literature student from England, keen Elizabethan reader, and frequent visitor to London’s Globe Theater, I hold the highest expectations when it comes to the authenticity and accuracy of any attempted reproduction of one of England’s most iconic eras. With this in mind, you can trust me when I say long live Sterling Renaissance Festival 15385 Farden Road Sterling, NY 13156 1.800.879.4446

in recent years has paved the way for an unprecedented means of written expression. Facebook and Twitter are constantly bombarded by status updates and posts, which have inadvertently revealed that the general grasp of the English language is indirectly proportional to the growth in the use of such social media. You don’t need to look much further than the Iphone’s auto correct service and Microsoft Word’s spell check to know that we live in an era when there is always something to do it for you. There is the notion that machines will do the job for us, which has fostered an approach to grammar of such ferocious laziness that I am tempted to advocate a return of Luddism. However, I fear that it is more a case that people, particularly the youth, just don’t care anymore. I have become known as something of a ‘grammar Nazi’ to my friends, but I see nothing tyrannous in expecting a basic knowledge of literacy from those who have paid through their noses for an humiliating themselves on the aforementioned social media, and it clinging on to some bizarrely perceived notion that understanding information takes not only precedence over grammatical accuracy, but complete importance (might I add, this seems far more ‘Nazi’

to me); in other words, as long as the reader understands what the author is getting at, all else is mere embellishment. In which case, of Newspeak. The responses were not completely ridiculous and there is some element of truth in the argument that grammatical ineptitude does not fully inhibit understanding. After all, we all know that when someone writes ‘should of ’, someone means ‘should have’, or when someone writes ‘your good’, someone means ‘you’re good’, or when someone types ‘their winning’ instead of ‘they’re winning’, we still know what the intent is, and when someone writes…well, you get the message. It is true that we know what was meant, kind of like how we all know what the dog means when he lifts his hind-leg next to a tree; this just doesn’t justify literate inadequacy. I even saw one write ‘pre-madonna’ instead of ‘prima donna’, the latter is a term often ‘before Madonna’. These are the bread and butter basics of our English language, it’s not like I’m expecting a universal mastering of the subjunctive; accept and except are not interchangeable, people! The English language is being butchered by a Neanderthal approach to grammar. If this language were a statue, it would have eroded to an unrecognizable extent. Rest in peace, dear author, you will be missed.
