Leslie Jordan at Club Cafe July 29-30

Leslie Jordan Show PonyBeverly Leslie Leslie Jordan makes a quick stop in Boston for two shows at Club Cafe on Tuesday, July 29 and Wednesday, July 30 ($25 general admission and $35 VIP seating).

Note that a second show on Wednesday was added even though it isn’t mentioned in the promo flyer I included in this post.

In Jordan’s latest show, Show Pony,  he reflects on the never ending, relentless quest for sustainability and longevity in Hollywood.  Tickets remain available for both shows but will likely sell out.  Get your tickets online from Club Cafe’s website here.

 

Wine review: Martín Códax Albariño 2012

Albarino 2012Writing a blog can have some real perks.  Last Tuesday I joined approximately twenty food and wine bloggers for a dinner at Row 34 to try Martin Codax Albarino’s 2012 vintage.

Seated next to me was my favorite food and wine blogger, Tracey (40-Something Life Blog). For those unfamiliar, Martin Codax Albarino, is a great Spanish table wine that ranges in price between $15-$20 at most retailers (or online here).

The wine is very versatile and can (and should) be enjoyed on its own but is perhaps best with shellfish and lighter seafood options like the menu prepared by Row 34 for our dinner.  Although write ups from Martin Codax suggest fruity overtones such as apple, peach, pear and lemon zest, I don’t pick that up. Rather, I would describe this Spanish wine as light and crisp with a minerality and dry finish that I like in white wine.

Next time you head out to your local wine shop ask for a bottle, give it a try and let me know what you think.

Cheers

Realm health and fitness tips with Kyle

sleepIs a lack of sleep impacting your weight loss goals?

Two of the primary hormones that affect weight loss are Testosterone and Human Growth Hormone. These hormones are released in our deep levels of sleep that can only be reached with long period of sleep, and it is proven that people who lack sleep have much lower levels of these hormones.  Here are some tips on how to optimize your sleep.

- Sleep in pitch black, even a digital alarm clock light can interrupt sleep.

- Don’t eat too close to bedtime. The breakdown of food in our stomachs can be disruptive to sleep.

- Foam roll or stretch before bed. This will release oxytocin, dopamine, and serotonin which will help you sleep better.

- Download a sleep monitoring mobile app too see how deeply you are sleeping.  These apps will show you when you are in REM sleep and your sleep activity for the whole night.
