The New Year is the time when individuals make radical declarations about personal challenges they want to overcome. Most resolutions focus around health, weight loss, financial freedom, and simply enjoying life more. These are all great goals to achieve but sadly about 80% of them fail. Like many of you, I used to make these same proclamations but finally gave it up after too many unsuccessful efforts.
2016 was different for me. Without making resolutions, this past year I worked out more consistently, I took my personal development more seriously, and surpassed my professional ones. I am proud to say that I worked really hard to manifest these things but I didn’t do it alone. The missing piece in the years past was ACCOUNTABILITY.
While I in no way will ever back down from proclaiming two of the BEST pizza spots in the city to be tucked away nice and neatly in the Throggs Neck area of the Bronx (Louie & Ernie’s and Tommy’s Pizza), there is one place in particular that stands above the rest. Pizza Palace (also known as Johnny’s) up on 121 Dyckman Street has a rabid fan base and goddamn does it deserve all the love it gets. Those in the know, those up in the Heights and those who travel for good pizza will attest to the awesomeness of all the slices that are offered here. Now for me this place represents more than just pizza.
The good folks at Up Theater Company are back with their Dead of Winter play reading series. The series kicks off this Sunday, January 15th and will take place for the following two Sundays in a row. The readings are free and always entertaining so you really can’t go wrong. See below for more info.
Three cold Sundays. Three hot plays.
