NYC Life: Wine Trip Recap, Off-Broadway, Dining, New Museum, and More
We had an amazing time on our (almost) annual Three Tomatoes Wine Trip last Sunday. Check out our photos and recap. There are lots of reasons to celebrate Off-Broadway this season, and we have two of them. Celebrate fall on the rooftop at Eataly Flatiron. Exciting news: there’s a new museum in town and it’s the largest digital arts experience in the country. And hard to believe, but Bryant Park opens it’s Winter Village at the end of this month. Maybe we can just enjoy Halloween first.

The tomato behind The Three Tomatoes.
Cheryl Benton, aka the “head tomato” is founder and publisher of The Three Tomatoes, a digital lifestyle magazine for “women who aren’t kids”. Having lived and worked for many years in New York City, the land of size zero twenty-somethings, she was truly starting to feel like an invisible woman. She created The Three Tomatoes just for the fun of it as the antidote for invisibility and sent it to 60 friends. Today she has thousands of friends and is chief cheerleader for smart, savvy women who want to live their lives fully at every age and every stage. She is the author of the novel, "Can You See Us Now?" and co-author of a humorous books of quips, "Martini Wisdom." Because she's lived a long time, her full bio won't fit here.
