Re: “"Escape From Tomorrow"

A really useful review, thanks City. I'd seen something about this movie on the new york times website, then in the Little Theater email yesterday. The trailer looked very interesting, but I was still undecided until I read Adam's review. I'll go check it out on the 26th.

Re: “Fringe Fest 2013 Reviews: TriviaCity (the Greatest Event of All Time)

I'm so glad I went down to this event last night. The gang from CITY really pulled it off and the Speigelgarden was beautiful on a cold Fall night. I would have scored a Zero had I played, but drinking beer, eating crab cakes while snug and warm by the chiminea was the prefect way to enjoy the hilarity that ensued. Kudos

Re: “The slavery effect

I don't know why CITY is reporting on this research finding?

Re: “DINING REVIEW: Orange Glory Cafe

I have to respectfully disagree with Mr Leach on this one. The cookies are not what I go for - the sandwiches are sublime! I've literally never had one I did not find absolutely delicious, and I tell people that Orange Glory is my favorite (non-alcoholic) lunch in the City. The lamb burger, when available, is knock-your-socks-off tasty, and even the veggie offerings satisfy this omnivore's cravings. I've never bothered with a soup there, so cannot comment on that. I generally agree with Mr Leach's tasting reviews, so he is no doubt right that it's bland. I do eat my OG sandwich with a knife and fork, since, as mentioned, the generous portioned fillings otherwise escape the bread. Other vehicles for the flavors may be a good idea, actually. In terms of the staff, I've found them friendly and approachable - no eye rolls even when I procrastinate about what to choose. Go try it for yourself, it's great!

Re: ““RuPaul’s Drag Race” Season 5, Episode 1: It’s not personal, it’s drag

Thanks for the cliff notes City, it was so confusing trying to keep track of who was who in and out of drag. But fun and... dramatic
