I was fortunate enough to attend the Dodgers game this past Saturday with my father while he was in town. It was his first time being at Dodger Stadium having grown up in Illinois watching the Cubs. One of the nice things I enjoy about Dodger Stadium is the timelessness the stadium possesses. Anytime a highlight is shown of past Dodger feats on the two giant screens overlooking the outfield the stadium always looks the same. Having been built in the 60’s and upgraded several times since then there doth exists an air of anachronistic narcosis that is prevalent throughout the stands. My father stated, “This place looks like Tomorrowland at Disneyland!” This extends to the concessions as well, where the world famous dodger dog has been sold since the team first moved from Brooklyn back in 1958. I ate two of those right off the bat and grabbed some peanuts shortly thereafter. Read more ›

As the Tony Awards approach in June, we thought we’d start with bit of trivia that’s probably little-known outside the theater community. The “Tony” in Tony Awards is actually short for “Antoinette.” The proper name of the awards ceremony is the Antoinette Perry Award for Excellence in Theater.
It may be a fun tidbit of information to share with friends, with the popularity of Broadway making a big comeback this year, thanks in part to the wildly-popular hit Hamilton. Hamilton is up for several Tonys, including Best Musical and Best Original Score. Viewers will be able to tune in on June 12 and watch the ceremony via CBS at 8/7 Central.
