If you love dance music and fabulous people get yourself to “Mighty Real: A Fabulous Sylvester Musical” now! The limited run, off-Broadway musical is a must see for lovers of soul music. The semi autobiographical piece follows the life and times of 70’s Icon Sylvester who created a world of his very own right in front of our eyes. The story is told by none other than Sylvester himself played by Anthony Wayne. Billed as one last night with the icon, the musical is a 90 minute tribute to Sylvester’s legacy with a soundtrack of his most popular hits, as we as some familiar songs from his favorite divas.

The show chronicles his life from early childhood in California to his rise to stardom and ends in his death. There is no mourning his departure however, the ending is an explosion of fun and dance with Wayne belting out Sylvester’s biggest hit with the kind of Gusto and reverence that only fans of the original Sylvester can appreciate. If you haven’t heard of Sylvester do your soul a favor and find all of his videos on YouTube. Before there was RuPaul, Madonna or Lady Gaga there was Sylvester an amazing talent who kept the world on edge with his powerful vocals and in your face style. Ferocious and fiercely fashion forward from day one Sylvester took over any room he entered. With tickets starting at $25 there is no reason you shouldn’t round-up your favorite people and enjoy a night of pure magic.

Mighty Real: A Fabulous Sylvester Musical Theatre at St. Clement’s

The venue is small but that means no matter where you sit you can see the entire stage. The closest seats to the action are only $100 which is a tiny pittance to pay for such talent. Even the background vocalists are amazing! The smaller venue allows for a more intimate experience and Anthony Wayne absolutely captivates his comedic timing was perfection and his passion for the music is evident in every note. His presence engulfs the space as only a true star can. With so many terrible things taking up space on the great white way, (last year’s Jekyll and Hyde immediately comes to mind) why not treat yourself to a fabulous evening and help a great musical raise the funds to keep the music alive. Don’t waste another minute thinking about it. Get to FabulousSylvester.com and order your tickets right now! Be quick about the last show is on October 5th.

If you live in a major city you know the joy of street food.  NYC dwellers have a unique advantage as we have the Vendy Awards, an annual event that brings the best food trucks together in one convenient location for an afternoon of edible bliss.  The awards were held on Governors Island a ferry accessible patch of land in NY Bay just a short trip from the southern tip of Manhattan.  When we arrived we were met with an excited swarm of foodies bursting with excitement at the many options available.  We started our trip around the carts with complimentary glasses of Santa Cristina wine.  The tasty vino opened up our palates for the tasty foods offered by the various trucks.

Though we spent the better part of the day eating, we were there on serious business.  Guests of the event are invited to sample then vote by anonymous ballot for their favorites in each category.  The biggest winner of the night, the recipient of the coveted Vendy Cup were judged by a panel of celebrity judges including, Iron Chef Alex Guarnashelli, Food Expert Adam Richman, and E! News Correspondent Alicia Quarles.  The winners of the day were:

The Vendy Cup: Cinnamon Snail

Masters Cup: Calexico

Best Dessert: Ice & Vice

Best Market Vendor: Zha PanAsian

Rookie of the Year: Snowday

People’s Taste Award: Nuchas

I am sure the judging was fair but our favorite of the day “El Rey Del Taco” was definitely robbed! Of all the trucks we only made a 2nd appearance at theirs.  Its been several days and I am still craving the amazing tostada. One of our favorites did win best dessert, Ice and Vice serves up some of the most delectable flavors of Ice Cream we have experienced.  Their Farmers boy Black Currant is absolutely amazing.  A great day was had by all and next year we will surely have a new favorite, but our heart will always belong to El Rey.
