Little Italy

Beginning September 12th, The Feast of San Gennaro, celebrates its 93rd anniversary this year hosting a variety of activities and events throughout its 11-day celebration.

The Feast takes place in the heart of Little Italy, running along Mulberry Street, between Canal Street (on south) and Houston Street (on north). The annual festival presented by Figli di San Gennaro (Children of San Gennaro) is a not-for-profit community organization dedicated to keeping the spirit and faith of the early Italian immigrants alive. To celebrate traditions of the past, the feast will be reintroducing the traditional, column lights to illuminate the streets in celebration of authentic Italy heritage. The celebration spans over 10 blocks with vendors offering everything from zeppoles to custom made jewelry, entertainment and family friendly activities.

The feast will kick-off with The Blessing of The Stands on September 12th at 6:00 PM. During this event, a Parish Priest parades through the festival blessing all the shops, restaurants, vendors, and merchants to symbol an enjoyable and successful feast. In addition, the Grand Procession parade will take place on September 14th at 2:00 PM lead by Grand Marshall Steve Schirripa, a New York based actor.

Steve Schirripa, a local Manhattan actor stars in Blue Bloods on CBS and known for various Italian acting roles and was chosen as the grand Marshall of the Italian feast, a role held by comedian Vic Dibitetto in 2018.

New for 2019, the Feast is introducing an inaugural Zeppole Eating Competition on Wednesday, September 18th at 1:00 PM. The contest will be sponsored by DANNY ON THE CORNER.

The cannoli contest is sponsored by Ferrara Bakery at the stage intersections of Mott and Grand Streets, this long running contest brings out the best in food competitions with a classic Italian treat. The meatball contest, which made its debut at the festival in 2016, is held in honor of the “unofficial Mayor of Little Italy,” Johnny “Cha Cha” Ciarcia.

Pop-Up Magazine

Thursday, October 10 at 7:30 PM
David Geffen Hall, Lincoln Center

POP-UP MAGAZINE PRODUCTIONS, PUBLISHER OF POP-UP MAGAZINE AND THE CALIFORNIA SUNDAY MAGAZINE, BRINGS YOU ORIGINAL, TRUE STORIES FOR YOUR NIGHTS AND WEEKENDS.
Why nights and weekends? Because these times are important to us, and they’re probably important to you. We’re not at work, looking for 30 seconds of distraction. We’re less likely to be trying and failing to do five things at once. We’re at home, or we’re out with our friends and families. We’re giving our attention, and we’re remembering. At Pop-Up Magazine Productions, we work hard to make things that are worthy of your best time.

Acquired by Emerson Collective in 2018, Pop-Up Magazine Productions operates as an independent subsidiary.

POP-UP MAGAZINE
This is where our story began. A small group of us decided to create a “live magazine.” Writers, radio producers, photographers, filmmakers, and illustrators would perform new, mostly reported stories in all kinds of media mixed together. Stories about science, politics, pop culture, sports, social issues, music, business, art, crime, technology, food, and more. The night would unfold like a classic general-interest magazine, and end with the cast and the audience mingling at the lobby bar. Nothing would be recorded. To see it, you had to be there.

It was a hobby at first, but it grew. We held the first show in a small theater in San Francisco. Soon, we moved to a 2,700-seat symphony hall, and tickets sold out in minutes. Today, we produce shows in more than a dozen cities, at grand, historic theaters like Lincoln Center and BAM Howard Gilman Opera House in New York, the Theatre at Ace Hotel in Los Angeles, and Davies Symphony Hall in San Francisco. We work with Oscar-winning filmmakers, New York Times bestselling authors, popular radio and podcast voices, and artists whose work appears in major international museums and magazines, as well as emerging talent. Their stories are vivid, multimedia experiences, accompanied by illustration, animation, photography, even shadow theater, and often an original score, performed onstage by our musical collaborators Magik*Magik Orchestra. We still end the night gathered around the bar. Our audiences are as interesting as the performers onstage, and we love to bring everyone together.

“Dr. Rupy is part of the new generation of physicians teaching people that food is medicine.”
— Dr. Mark Hyman, MD

In 2011, Dr. Aujla helped overcome his own medical problem by diving into the research and figuring out how lifestyle impacted his condition. He realized that patients could benefit from a doctor explaining the evidence-based benefits of healthy living, which is exactly what he does. Through a holistic view of the body and mind, combined with conventional medical practice, we can achieve great things.

Not only does he create delicious recipes on his website and social media channels including Instagram, Facebook and YouTube, Dr. Aujla also talks about the amazing clinical research behind the ingredients he uses.

He has two best-selling cookbooks published by Harper Collins: ‘The Doctor’s Kitchen’ and his second book ‘Eat to Beat Illness’; which was released in the United Kingdom in March 2019 and is soon to be released in the US in September this year, and quickly become a UK Sunday Times Bestseller.
