Last week, I had the privilege of attending the premiere of the Segal Centre’s latest production: Othello.
Director Alison Darcy’s take on Shakespeare’s tragedy is enhanced by a minimalist yet effective decor and most importantly by the performances of the actors. Andrew Moodie and Sean Arbuckle, respectively Othello and his frenemy Iago gave an outstanding interpretation of these complex characters. The casting is splendid and this is even more visible in the caracter of Emilia and Desdemona who were by far my two favorite protagonists.

Last week-end, I went to NY to cheer for my sister who ran (and completed) her very first marathon, the ING New York City Marathon. Saturday was busy and after running a gazillion errands we decided to try a new spot The Smith for brunch.
We went to their Lincoln Center location and, believe me, that was a great decision.
I ordered a ‘Smoked Salmon Benedict‘, my sister ordered the ‘Ranchero Scramble‘ and since we both have a sweet tooth we ordered the most delicious buttermilk waffle served with whipped cream and strawberries. And because we’re extra sweet, we traded the maple syrup for a side of salted caramel!
The place was packed, and the French brasserie-inspired decor, which is almost identical to Schiller’s in the Lower East Side, added to the fun of the experience. We shall be back for more!
