Soups in NY, Briskets in Birmingham
Posted in: Uncategorized
I’m doing a 2-4-1 today, because it’s almost the weekend and I’m lazy.
First I want to tell you about a great event that’s taking place next weekend here in New York.
The hip downtown synagogue The New Shul is hosting their annual Golden Schmaltz awards, which has included the Battle of the Briskets in the past. This year, keeping in touch with sporting events, they’re doing the Souper Bowl. Get it?
Contestants will enter their best Jewish soups in two categories: chicken and other. They’ll be judged by four celebrity judges, including Sharon Lebewohl, kosher caterer, educator, and part of the 2nd Ave Deli dynasty. Tickets are $50 for adults, and proceeds go to the New Shul.
Sunday, 1.25, 3:30-5:30pm
62 W 9th St.
Secondly, my good friend Sy Ginsberg told me about a deli he’s helping to open in Birmingham, Alabama. Yes friends, the sweet heart of the deep south is going to get a genuine Jewish delicatessen. Max’s Deli promises to be the real deal. It’s linked to the Jewish community, and will host a grand opening dinner to benefit the Birmingham Chapter of Hadassah on the 22nd. If you’re a hungry Jew living in the deli-deprived South, then head over to Birmingham and nosh away at Max’s. Love the graphics.
