Having taken a trip a few years ago to Croatia and Slovenia, I was curious about Manhattan’s first Slovenian-American restaurant on the Upper West Side. I arranged to meet a friend at Pekarna Slovenian American Restaurant. Pekarna initially expanded its New American menu to include Slovenian cuisine and has become a popular events venue in its neighborhood.

The food was fresh and fabulous. I added a topping of grilled chicken to sauteed cauliflower, sesame seeds, golden raisins, Calabrian chilies, scallions, croutons to my salad entree and almond sauce.

As I was ready to leave the restaurant, I noticed their hosting of Alice in Wonderland: An Immersive Cocktail Experience. It was irresistible, and I went to take photos of the event. Fun indeed! They were serving Mocktails!

I highly recommend Pekarna. Check their events schedule to see if you’d like to attend when you go. Excellent cuisine and fun events!

Master Your Mindset: The Master’s Way

Nader conveys that eliminating our toxic mindset begins with identifying whether we operate our lives with humility or hubris. Humility allows us to admit our weaknesses, accept our strengths, and live truthfully. Conversely, hubris is a life filled with deception. Nader’s readers are encouraged to choose whether they lead a life of hubris or humility; the outcome is in your control, depending on which way you live.

Hallelujah Junction featured nine company ballerinas and danseurs draped in the sartorial elegance of black and white attire metaphorically linked both to the keys of a piano and the musically rich, cyclic intones of Adams’s oeuvre.
