Ugly Fruits and Veggies Find Love in France

I am guilty of skipping over the ugly fruits and veggies at my local grocer and farmers market. But I never thought about the amount of food waste that creates. French super markets have found a solution for this problem! It eliminates waste AND save families money in the process. Check out the video below! Maybe the U.S. should take a queue from the French on this one!

See you at the Series… The Rialto Center for the Arts

Last week I spoke to WSB-TV (channel 2 in Atlanta) about two of the Series Shows at the Rialto Center for the Arts. The first being Bale Folclorico da Bahia (Nov 1 & 2) and the second being The James Brown Project: Get on the Good Foot (Nov 9).

I am so excited about BOTH of these shows. I’ve seen Bale Folclorico twice and they are AMAZING! I love Brazilian dance, I love African dance. And Bale Folclorico da Bahia is that historic fusion of both. And when they perform at the Rialto, it’s a PARTY! Be prepared to dance at the end!!

The James Brown Project just premiered in New York at the Apollo. The Rialto is the second theater to show it. Its a celebration of James Brown’s influence on dance choreographed by 6 artist from around the world and performed by Philadanco. I saw the FIRST ever preview of the show a few weeks ago. And I cannot tell you enough how amazing it will be.

Both of these shows get me excited, so I was pleased to talk with WSB-TV. And I’m pleased to present you some options for discounted tickets! And PS- get there early the pre-shows are amazing! And the post-shows are great fun! I love the Rialto!

Bone Lick BBQ… Uh, Pun Obviously Intended

Had the opportunity to try this spot at an event at work. The social committee somehow put together a miniature “Taste of Atlanta”. I was very pleased with the barbecue chicken wings. A little spice, but not too much (and I am sensitive to that kind of heat). And yes, I did want to lick the bone!

I’m looking forward to visiting for an after-work meal! Something that good should not be rushed.

I thought I took a picture… sad face for my absent mindedness… next time!
