Butter Restaurant - New York City

Every year, NYC like many cities promotes restaurant week where prixe fixe menus at highly-rated or cutting-edge (sometimes, more ambience than food) restaurants are offered at lower octane prices.  One on the 2013 list was Butter Restaurant in downtown Manhattan which serves traditional American food with a spicy kick.  For foodies, I heard that the Executive Chef is Food Network favorite, Alexandra Guarnaschelli.

Honoring Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King

"Darkness cannot drive out darkness
only light can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that"
~ Martin Luther King ~

Free Synagogue of Flushing

Rabbi Michael Weisser from the Free Synagogue of Flushing in Queens, NY along with guest speakers, Reverend Wilfedo Benitez, Rector at St. George's Church, Reverend Richard McEachern, Pastor at Macedonia A.M.E. Church and celebrants honored the life and legacy of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. through an ecumenical service about a month ago. The second inauguration of President Obama on MLK's birthday was affirmation that our nation is continuing our journey on a positive path for equal opportunity, rights and justice.
