A Taste of Home - A-Pou's Taste

Lunch tends to be a tricky meal if you work full-time, and really want to avoid the lines and burgers Mickey D's.

You could bring lunch, but its more rewarding to know you can afford lunch.  I recently discovered A-Pou's Dumpling cart.

With 4 dumpling options to chose from you really can't go wrong. There's Taiwanese Style Pork, Hong Kong Style Chicken, Kimchi Beef, and Vegetarian.  What's got me hooked is that they advertise using no MSG in their food, and it's pretty authentic when it comes to potstickers - right down to crispy skin).  The next closet thing is making them yourself from scratch.

Took me at least 3x before I was able to take the pictures.
Which I've actually done, and it's simply not the same making them with family and then eating a giant pot of dumplings. 

You can have it with noodles or just order a whole bunch of dumplings. And between $5-$9 you get your money's worth.

2012 Holiday Window Displays in NYC

Holidays are often the best times for tourists with chance to see New York City during their vacation.  For New Yorkers its also a time to brood and avoid all the any plans that involve remotely going near main points of traffic.

However there is one that thing that both tend to enjoy is the holiday window displays.  People line up and wait just to see what will light up and what new themes stores have come up with.

Like the ice rinks that open, the special markets that open during this time of year, stores get into the season by decorating their windows with images that inspire anyone to take their camera out. I personally recommend starting midtown and walking up. Depending on the time of day you can visit them all in one day - be prepared to brave crowds and have your walking shoes on.

See Bloody, Bloody Andrew Jackson for $50

Ever imagined what any of our founding fathers would be if they were a twenty-something, emo rock star? From the mind of Michael Friedman, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson is a musical rendition about just that. Dealing with populism, the Indian Removal act, and of course making time for his wife Rachel, Andrew Jackson has complicated life story that can only be illustrated through song and dance.

The producers of the show would like to show their political support with their "Jackson for a Grant" initiative which offers $50 tickets to the show through November 24th.

Just use the code BBJVOTE when you purchase your tickets on or purchase tickets at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theater box office (242 West 45th Street, Manhattan); or by call (212) 947-8844.
