Spring Travel: Pensacola Bay Area Boasts More Than Sun and Sand

brianjo 7

Pensacola, Florida (PRWEB) March 12, 2015 For families looking for an escape this Spring Break, the Pensacola Bay Area offers history, adventure and fun in the sun – not to mention mile after mile of sugar-white sand and turquoise water. History Pensacola is renowned for having “the world’s whitest beaches.” What fewer people know is that the city was also America’s first European settlement and the cradle of Naval aviation. The historic seaport, first settled by Spanish conquistador Don Tristan de Luna in the 16th century, is steeped in colonial and U.S. military history. Those who want to immerse themselves in the city’s past can look to several award-winning museums located just a short drive from the beach. The National Naval Aviation Museum, located just west of downtown Pensacola, features an IMAX® theatre, aircraft simulators and hundreds of meticulously restored military aircraft. For those wanting to delve into the city’s colonial past, Historic Pensacola Village is the place to be. This massive, open-air museum features a large collection of restored, colonial-era buildings, in addition to live actors playing out scenes from the city’s past. Just a short walk from the village, the Pensacola Museum of Art and T.T. Wentworth, Jr. Florida State Museum also offer family-friendly exhibits. Don’t miss the cultural experiences available by visiting the new Voices of Pensacola Multicultural Center where you can listen to oral histories or tour historic sites along the African-American Heritage Trail. Adventure For those who prefer a bit more adrenaline in their vacation, the Pensacola Bay Area offers a wide array of activities for all adventure seekers. Ride the waves on a dolphin cruise. Take the family on a paddle boarding adventure. Rent ocean kayaks, or – if you prefer to get a bit further off the beaten path – take a five-hour zip lining course through the treetops above the pristine Coldwater Creek. Shopping No vacation would be complete without souvenirs, and the Pensacola Bay Area offers plenty of excuses to buy that third suitcase. On Pensacola Beach, the shops of the Portofino Boardwalk sell a wide variety of merchandise – from beach wear to designer clothes, jewelry, wine and a smorgasbord of cheeky souvenirs. A short drive over the Pensacola Bay Bridge yields even more shopping. Palafox Street, downtown Pensacola’s main commercial corridor, has undergone a renaissance in recent years and boasts a wide variety of eclectic shops, galleries and eateries. No visit to downtown would be complete without a stop at Joe Patti’s Seafood Market, located just a couple blocks to the west of Palafox. The market, a Pensacola landmark for decades, is the place to stock up on fresh seafood. Get there early enough, and you might even catch a glimpse of the Patti’s boats unloading their catch on the docks. Dining Pensacola – with its vibrant downtown and beaches and its proximity to the Gulf of Mexico – is a diner’s delight. The city boasts a diverse and burgeoning culinary scene, as well as more Florida Golden Spoon Awards than any other locale in the region. On Pensacola Beach, the Grand Marlin offers gourmet dining and impeccable views of the bay. On the other side of the bridge, the options are expansive. Diners can enjoy upscale tapas and wine at the Global Grill, Irish pub fare and home-brewed beer at the world-famous McGuire’s, or eclectic Southern cuisine at the Fish House. Nightlife While Pensacola is known for its family friendly atmosphere, the city is not without nightlife. The iconic Flora Bama, which straddles the Alabama state line in Perdido Key, is a Spring Break hot spot. Capt’n Fun – located on Pensacola Beach – offers nightly drink specials, live music and dancing – all just steps from the water. Just a few steps in the other direction, the Sandshaker bar is the birthplace of Pensacola’s very own frozen, chocolaty concoction, the Bushwhacker. Downtown, the nightlife scene includes Seville Quarter, Vinyl Music Hall, Blend and World of Beer. Besides boasting picture-perfect weather, springtime in the Pensacola Bay Area is also chock full of festivals and special events. Mark these events on your calendar to get even more out of your stay in paradise: A Bark to Remember on March 28, Blue Angels Practice Sessions from March 31 to April 8, the Perdido Key Wine and Art Festival from April 2-5, the opening of the Blue Wahoos baseball season on April 9, Bands on the Beach every Tuesday night beginning April 7, Pensacola JazzFest on April 11-12 and the Gulf Coast Half Marathon on April 12.

Moscow 57 Releases “Stormy Weather,” CD to Address Climate Change

brianjo 15

New York, NY (PRWEB) November 29, 2014 Moscow 57, the New York-based hospitality and entertainment company, released a listening card for its virtual CD, “Stormy Weather” at the American Sustainable Business Council (ASBC) 3rd Annual Washington, DC Summit, November 12 – 14, 2014. Moscow 57 is a member of ASBC. Stormy Weather opens with Cleve Douglass singing “Come Rain or Come Shine” and features Ellen Kaye, owner of Moscow 57 singing the title tune, as well as Annie Lennox’s “Cold”; “Raindrops Keep Falling on my Head”; “The Hounds of Winter,” by Sting; Neil Young’s “Harvest Moon”; the original “The World is Your Oyster,” by Kaye and Ethan Fein; and Sam Cooke’s “Good Times,” sung by Kaye and Douglass. The M57 Band accompanies both vocalists and features musical director Ethan Fein on guitar, Benjamin Franklin Brown on bass and Kory Grossman on drums. Also included are a reading of William Wordsworth by Helene Gresser and a series of interviews with members of the ASBC. The songs and interviews in Stormy Weather were edited from Episode 7 of M57 Straight from Delancey, a weekly radio show heard on WVOX 1460 AM, New Rochelle, NY and on the Moscow 57 Website http://www.moscow57.com. It was timed to coordinate with the recent UN Summit on Climate Change in NYC. The radio show and the “virtual EP CD” is produced by Ellen Kaye, Seth Goldman and Ethan Fein. The theme of the show, coordinated by the American Sustainable Business Council, is “Stormy Weather – The Business of Addressing Climate Change.” Among the guests on the show who are heard on the CD are ASBC members Michael Green, program director for the Climate Action Liaison Coalition and Miriam Novalle of T Salon, who brought tea cocktails for the audience to enjoy during the show. Also appearing is actor/comedian Marilyn Sokol. The listening card was handed out to participants of the summit, both ASBC members and the policy makers they met with. http://bit.ly/1r6I81O “Most policy-makers agree that economic inequality is a failure of the market, but they disagree on what to do about it,” said ASBC’s Vice President of Policy Richard Eidlin. “Our solutions are a mix of traditional policy interventions such as increasing the minimum wage and improving access to credit, as well as innovative, market-based ideas and business models that provide greater opportunities for worker ownership. We need to move quickly to a more robust economy that provides a better balance of gains across the economy and in a way that is sustainable.” As economic inequality remains a key national policy concern, ASBC believes that economic inequality slows the economy and presents a barrier to a fully productive workforce. The business advocacy organization promotes such solutions as increasing the minimum wage, employee ownership, access to credit for small businesses, and assistance for micro-enterprises. About Ellen Kaye Ellen Kaye performs nightly with Ethan Fein and the Moscow 57 Band at their new restaurant, Moscow 57 on Delancey, a Russian Central Asian restaurant with nightly live music. Ellen has performed at Carnegie Hall (with the New York Pops), Town Hall, noted jazz club The Iridium, and the Metropolitan Room. Kaye’s recordings are “Ice Wine – Songs for Christmas and dark winter nights,” “3AM…the dogs, the milkman & me,” “2AM,” and a single by Dar Williams “When I Was a Boy.” Ellen owns Moscow 57 on Delancey with partners Seth Goldman and Ethan Fein. Their company Moscow 57 is comprised of the restaurant, a catering division, a small music label, theater and film productions, and its own M57 On-Air Urban Salon podcasts. The company creates M57 Urban Salons, evenings of music, food and digital visual art displays, from Harlem to New Orleans. Soon, the restaurant will have a Sunday night radio show. About Cleve Douglass Improvisational jazz vocalist Cleve Douglass began his vocal training in classical (operatic) vocal technique, then studied and worked in musical theater, which eventually led him to his passion: jazz and scat improvisations. His multi-cultural recordings embrace the styles of Bossa Nova, swing, Afro-Cuban, electronic, and standards from The Great American Songbook. After extensively touring and performing in Japan, Cleve brings an air of sophistication and retro-nouveau sensibility to a number of bands in New York City, appearing on dates at the Blue Note and NBC’s “The Today Show.” About Helene Gresser Helene is a comedian, actress, and writer. Sometimes she writes funny songs. She may also serve you a drink tonight, and possibly some food. She co-created the webisode series “Hey Rude” and has been featured on the Tyra Banks show discussing rude behavior, even though she was so heavily made-up she could barely open her falsie-laden eyelids. Currently she is working on her one-woman, autobiographical comedy show, tentatively titled “SHEEZUS! (Comin’ To Get Ya!)” in which she reads from her very DRAMATIC childhood journals and occasionally breaks out into songs from Jesus Christ Superstar. Helene is also opening her delightfully cozy thrift store, Artistic Thrift, in her Ridgewood, Queens neighborhood, and hopes you come by to listen to ole-timey vinyl records and peruse her vast collection of tchotchkes, thingamajigs, and doo-dads. Originally from Shorewood, Wisconsin, she credits below-zero temperatures and consumption of vast quantities of sausage, cheese, and beer for her family’s bizarre sense of humor. Her brother John is far funnier, but he lives in Milwaukee, so he cannot steal her limelight now, thank Sheezus. About Ethan Fein Ethan is our Moscow 57 music maven and Ellen’s accompanist and musical director. He has played guitar in concerts with Kristen Chenoweth, Bernadette Peters, Marvin Hamlisch, Cy Coleman, and Carole King, to name a few. Ethan also played in the Broadway shows “42nd Street,” “West Side Story,” “The Full Monty,” and “Cats” for its entire run. Ethan co-produced Ellen’s latest CDs “Ice Wine – songs for Christmas and dark winter nights” and the single “When I Was A Boy” with Seth Goldman and Ellen. He has just finished co-writing a new musical with Robby Merkin.

About T Salon T Salon’s mission is to create a ground swell of conscious tea drinkers and inspire the heartbeat of millions through the spirit of an everyday cup of tea. To walk and talk with our eyes open, keep an open heart and mind, and educate our customers in the ancient world and the art of tea. More than that, they are dedicated to expanding the virtues of responsible business practices by maintaining a social and environmental awareness. They do this by providing non-GMO, fair trade options while using recyclable material for distribution. However, T Salon also takes it one step further by supporting the American Sustainable Business Council, which gives them an active voice in shaping policies that will create a better world. From a passion for aroma, to a passion for wellness, to a passion for the environment, they reach towards enlightenment for ourselves and others through tea. T Salon has served and donated teas throughout the years to breast cancer awareness, ovarian cancer foundations, and heart health foundations.

By using her extraordinary skills as a perfumer or “Nose,” she has since been dubbed by New York Times as the “Tea Guru” for her harmonious blends. When Miriam opened her first T Salon there were only a handful of establishments in New York City that offered the tradition of tea. She has since engaged T Salon products in “pop-up companies” for MAC cosmetics and New York City’s High Line, where her teas can be found within already established businesses. As the tea business grew, Miriam again expanded T Salon by focusing on distributing tea as a wholesale tea merchant with a focus on eco-friendly business practices. Her passion for tea combined with her passion for the environment has revolutionized the tea industry to create a sustainable industry with a conscience. Miriam believes in more than building a thriving business; she believes in a business that gives back to the consumers and the community. T Salon has healthy environmental options that educate her customers about the history, art and production of tea, but she also firmly believes in the healing power of tea.

This Just Isn’t How People Do Business

brianjo 30

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) March 19, 2015 After 33 years of training and launching entertainers, AMTC announced a new payment philosophy: Pay What You Pray (PWYP). This new and open-door tuition policy requires AMTC to step out in faith. No performer who is called and qualified will be denied. If someone auditions to join the program and receives a callback, AMTC requires prayer to confirm God’s call. When presenting PWYP at a search, AMTC Executive Director Adam She recalls a mother explaining to her son that PWYP just “isn’t how people do business.” Adam responds, “I believe PWYP is the way God would have us do business. Unfortunately, this concept is still foreign to the world we live in… that is until now. AMTC is humbled to be the first to launch this unconventional, revolutionary and challenging payment program.” According to AMTC, the organization has always offered financial aid and discounts. Some performers asked and received. But others who didn’t ask were left behind. PWYP ensures that no called and qualified performer who wants to work in the field of media will be left behind. Since January, AMTC has faced financial challenges with the PWYP plan. Their tuition income has been cut in half. On Wednesday, March 18, this non-profit began its first-ever pledge drive, encouraging everyone who wants to see positive role models in media to become AMPs (AMTC Monthly Partners). “This is a time of great need for this ministry. We decided to put our money where our mouths are: trust in God and His people,” says Adam She. With a mission of “Making Good Bolder” on the stages of film, fashion, music and theater, the organization is excited to welcome all performers to become stars for Christ – regardless of their financial means. AMTC needs AMPs to support these future stars in their desire to stand up for God in entertainment. To learn more about the new movement of AMTC, or to become an AMP, visit paywhatyoupray.org.
