Thoroughly entertaining. Went there last Sunday night to see Harlow Gold. I was impressed with the choreography, the costumes and the way the girls got into character during the show. Three shows followed by 15-20 minute breaks featuring group and individual sequences. The decor is red, red, red kitschy bordello, as one would expect. They pull it off well. It's the whole package. The show is campy, sexy and rather comical, so don't expect to grab strip club jollies here. Modern day burlesque doesn't go there. We grabbed the premium seats which are in the center which provides an unobstructed view of the action. Side seating is a few dollars less and there are standing room tickets, as well. Provided you get there early enough, you can get a seat at the bar. We were graced with the presence of Queen Latifah (who obviously knew one of the dancers) to our left and Senior Black Correspondent Larry Wilmore from the Jon Stewart show to our right. I'm thinking the reviewers who were "bored" by the performance probably belong at Scores. We'll go back.

I was in Philly recently and had to stop by when I heard that one of my favorite chefs... Iron Chef Morimoto... had a spot in Philly. Fearing uppity fancy schmancy food, I walked in and I was pleasantly surprised by the welcome that I received. I was promptly seated by the sushi bar and chose to dine on soba edamame scallop and truffle carbonara as a starter. An interesting take on the usual carbonara, it was sinfully creamy and bacony. I also chose the chef's combination of sushi, sushi rolls and sashimi - all delightfully made fresh and tasty to order. Overall I was a very happy diner upon leaving Morimoto's!

Considering the lack of bowling options in Manhattan, Bowlmor suffices. They have the option for gutter bumpers, so that was helpful for the young one in our group (as much as I try to convince him to move past his 'bumper' phase...). The downside of the bumpers here is that once they are up, they stay up through everyone's game. At Chelsea piers they program it so the bumpers deploy only for those who need it when their it's their turn to bowl. I thought I made an expensive mistake after I ordered, but the burger came and it was big and very nicely cooked. Fries were tasty too. We also had the hummus plate with artichoke salad, not bad either. If you're on a budget just save the eating for elsewhere. We went on a Sunday afternoon and there were plenty of lanes, and service was great. Nice to watch all the day's football and baseball games on the big screens above the lanes. Chelsea Lanes may be slightly cheaper, but only slightly. Fun to read all the celebrity-autographed pins displayed behind the lanes, from Gretzky to Lewinsky (I'll spare you any jokes...)
