The Soho Grand Creates Elegant Dog Park

Soho GrandIf you’re one of those people who just doesn’t want to travel without her dog – you’re in luck. The Soho Grand not only welcomes guests with their pooches, but they are now creating an outdoor area especially for dogs. As explained in Luxury Travel Magazine,

“This deluxe lifestyle will be reflected in the beautiful design of the space, which will have an old Soho charm to it, incorporating the wall of St. Alphonsus Liguori Church into the landscape, which stood long before the Soho Grand. Cherry trees, boxwoods and ornamental kale will provide foliage for a verdant and natural environment, while overhead string lights, bespoke benches and fire hydrants will be a witty reminder to visitors that they are in one of the chicest establishments of the world’s most cosmopolitan city.”

Watch for this addition in May and enjoy taking your dog to New York with you. Now, if only they would let them into the Broadway shows…

Enjoy the Beat in the South Village

If you love unusual music and off-the-beaten-path fun, then the concert this Saturday night at the radio station WQXR’s Jerome L. Greene Space in the South Village may be just the thing for you. The program is called “Vocal Electrofolk: Africa to New York” and includes Zimbabwean singer Netsayi and her group, Black Pressure.

After their opening act, Helga Davis will close the evening. She recently starred in a revival of the Robert Wilson and Philip Glass opera “Einstein on the Beach.” The concert was organized by the composer Paola Prestini and is being presented as part of the Original Music Workshop’s “virtual season.”

Admission is $15 and the show will take place at 7pm at 44 Charlton Street.
