Sommerstad, Patricia In the Footsteps of Ruth Life Skills- Food,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Come with me on a unique adventure that's part of New York City's culinary history! Ruth Reichl was the NY Times food critic from 1993-1999, famous for her “populist” reviews of restaurants that everyone could enjoy and afford. Previous Times reviewers had focused on the stuffy, expensive high-end restaurants, but Ruth changed all that! Of the almost 400 restaurants that she reviewed, over 75 are still in business almost twenty years later! In this workshop, with foreknowledge of her (often very funny) reviews, we will walk in Ruth's footsteps to “visit” seven of them. We'll examine what has changed and what remains the same. Then we'll explore the neighborhoods of each, visiting familiar landmarks and discovering off-the-beaten-path attractions, such as rooftop bars and unusual museums, special interest tours and more. You will leave with seven all-day itineraries, seven Ruth Reichl restaurant reviews, and most likely, several prizes! 1 ½ hours. 21 prizes. Handouts

The Games Man, TREVOR Giants & Giraffes * Dragons & Detectives Other,

A UNIQUE PARTICIPATORY STAGE SHOW FOR CHILDREN AND FAMILIES TREVOR starts out on stilts nearly 9' tall! The first half is his Aerial Delights: an up-in-the-air extravaganza of tricks and skills featuring Wind Whistlers, Ribbon Dancers, the color-changing Chameleon Stick, volunteers from the audience, lots of call and response, and loads of laughter! When he sits down and takes of the stilts, the group is always interested in how the stilts are made and having their questions answered. Then it's game time! First, large group games for the entire audience together. Who's the Leader? and Hula Hoop Basketball are perennial favorites. Next is brainteasers, guessing games, and minute mysteries. For the 7th inning stretch, we'll all stand up for a whole series of quick partner games, switching partners between each one (they're mixers, too!) Then we'll sit back down for one more large group game to pull everyone back together. And for the crowd-stopping closer, it's the fastest game in the world: it's all of 1 second long! All in all, an hour of sheer FUN for all ages. (Check out Project: Ribbon Dancer for a great add-on craft project, too.)

But she also sings about the alphabet, colors, and eating healthy foods. In her shows, Gigi fosters a love of literacy with the help of her puppet Dionte, Baba Anansi the spider, and her grumpy friend, King Meanie. She reads didactic tales from the magic griot book, and encourages the audience to have more “Ubuntu.” Fans of Gigi Gumspoon, called “Gumbabies”, will learn to not only love themselves, but each other.
