  • Our perfect weekend: The Linial Family

    "We enjoy going to shows and this weekend [April 6], we are going to the opening of a new show I am producing at the Canal Room called The Fun Music Kids Show with Party In The USA. Its a about four singers who come to the city to start a new band called Party In The USA and pays tribute to the hot artists of today, like Katy Perry, the Black Eyed Peas and Taylor Swift. It also, though, pays tribute to the classic songs of Michael Jackson, Journey and some other great surprises. We're doing three preview shows and hope to make it twice a month by September."

    Our perfect weekend: The Linial Family

    "We are all big on sweets so a stop at Dewey's Candy Shop in Dumbo seems to be a weekly visit for us. Just the welcome we get from Dewey herself is worth the stop in! I can spend a half hour in there just looking at all the cool classic candy selection she has."

    Our perfect weekend: The Linial Family

    "When we have the patience, we love to get brunch at Clinton St. Baking Company. I still can't figure out the right time to go and, sometimes, I swear we won't go back but then we have our meal and come to the conclusion that it's worth the wait. My wife Melanie, being a North Carolina gal, loves the southern breakfast—eggs, sugar cured bacon, cheese grits and fried green tomatoes. The kids and I love the pancakes with warm maple butter."
