The Falanghina Way

The Falanghina method to overcome Post-Holiday -
 New Year doldrums is to celebrate, with "delicious oven-made Pizza."

130 St. Marks Place, NYC Between 1st Ave & Ave A.
The menu features a Genoa and Neapolitan cuisine.
The wood-burning oven creates heavenly, pizza.

The Margherita is one of my favorites but their all "delisiosso!"

Spinach, Baby Portabello mushroom, zucchini and mozzarella, yum!

Bridget Barkan is wildly entertaining.
  Energetic wit, contagious humor, cutting edge music and songs.
May 31, 2014 I had the good fortune to catch her performance
in "Love Junkie" at Joe's Pub and she rocked the house.

Joe's Pub Public Theater, 425 Laffayette street, NYC.

Bridget Barkan is a little bit Whoppi Goldberg, Bette Midler and
Madeline Kahn rolled into one. She seamlessly sheds one character
into the next. Metamorphosizing costume changes and hairstyles
right before your very eyes.

A consummate entertainer, she kept us happily riveted to our seats. 
Her back-up  band was, "just what the Doctor ordered."
