#PeachysPicks #TerrificTakeout @AmmosEstiatorio @AmmosNewYork Introducing #EOSBRUNCH Starting Saturday, May 21st Noon to 6pm and Every Saturday Going Forward

Spring is here and the Goddess Eos has come down to earth starting this Saturday for Brunch at Ammos!  Ammos Estiatorio is having Brunch for the first time ever, and every Saturday starting this Saturday May 21st from noon to 6pm the EOS BRUNCH will be in full swing complete with fire performers, belly dancers and DJ's.  Eos is the Greek Goddess of the Dawn who rose each morning from her home at the edge of the river Oceanus.

The Farmers Omelette is a superlative Eos Brunch option complete with three organic eggs, Greek Sausage, mixed vegetables, and Ammos home fries heightened with a lemon kick and served with fresh marinara sauce and yogurt cream.  It is a sunrise of a start to your day and you will be eating like a Goddess yourself.  There are many new menu items including Greek Toast, Avocado Toast, Steak and Eggs, Poached Eggs including Mediterranean Benedict and Seafood Benedict, and all of the options we show you visually described by Peachy Deegan.

Peachy's personal favorite of the Brunch items she tried was the Salmon Omelette!  The perfectly seared salmon sections perch majestically upon those beautiful organic eggs and are joined by spring favorites leeks, shallots and chives and rounded out wonderfully with yogurt cream.  An indulgent commencement to your day, the Salmon Omelette packs a punch of protein and the flavor combination cannot be beat.  Those Mediterranean lemon home fries come to the party and amp it up!
No brunch is complete without the celebratory vino and the Goldvine Chardonnay is ideal as it is uplifting, bright and fresh.  Created in the Greek City of Nemea in Peloponnese, this chardonnay is aged in French Oak barrels for only three months, yielding a whole-bodied, fresh, fruity, elegant white wine that pairs well with a variety of Eos Brunch options.  Its tremendous versatility and summery sensational sips receive high accolades.
Penne Kipou, which means garden in Greek, is a tantalizing vegetable delight as these multi-color bell peppers, cauliflower, tomatoes and more have a party on a plate and the pesto sauce reaches a level of true divinity.  Continuing along the healthy theme, say enchante to the Glossa Burger below.  Glossa is the Greek Filet of Sole and the Mediterranean fish filet is a delicious celebration of the sea and elevated with further flavor with a herb infusion.  Iceberg lettuce, red onion and tomato rejoice along with it and the tartar sauce, fragrant pickles with crunch and outstanding ammos fries make this a supremely tantalizing delight.

Ammos continues to earn our Highest Recommendation.

#ProductAlert #MadeinFrance #FrancePeachy @yslbeauty Yves Saint Laurent Libre Eau de Parfum Earns Whom You Know's Highest Recommendation

Libre Eau de Parfum is evocative of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Olfactory Happiness!  

Everyone knows that Peachy Deegan is a dedicated francophile, starting from going to hockey games and learning french from French Canadian hockey players.  In the many years since, she took six years of it in school and has of course looked for it in beauty products forever.  We could not be more thrilled to share with you the newest fragrance from Yves Saint Laurent, LIBRE, which has earned our highest recommendation.

As we all emerge from a global pandemic after being locked up, is there anything more coveted than the feeling of being free?  Yes, there is Virginia, and even better than Santa Claus, it's the feeling of being free in tandem with a few superlative spritzes of Libre by YSL.  Dignified enough to wear to the most formal offices, sophisticated enough to dress up a casual day and evocative enough to successfully transition into night pursuits, LIBRE is the ideal scent of the season and has wide appeal.

New York and obviously MANHATTAN in particular is known for women that make their own rules and Libre is a celebration of them.   Lavender, orange and vanilla sing a symphony of success and our studies show that men respond well and admire the aromatics.  But what is really important is that YOU LOVE IT. 

Libre Eau de Parfum évoque la Vie, la Liberté et la Recherche du Bonheur Olfactif ! Tout le monde sait que Peachy Deegan est une francophile dévouée, qui a commencé par aller à des matchs de hockey et apprendre le français auprès de joueurs de hockey canadiens-français. Au cours des nombreuses années qui ont suivi, elle en a suivi six ans à l'école et l'a bien sûr recherchée dans les produits de beauté depuis toujours. Nous ne pourrions être plus ravis de partager avec vous le dernier parfum d'Yves Saint Laurent, LIBRE, qui a mérité notre plus haute recommandation. Alors que nous sortons tous d'une pandémie mondiale après avoir été enfermés, y a-t-il quelque chose de plus convoité que le sentiment d'être libre ? Oui, il y a Virginie, et encore mieux que le Père Noël, c'est la sensation d'être libre en tandem avec quelques spritz superlatifs de Libre by YSL. Suffisamment digne pour être porté dans les bureaux les plus formels, suffisamment sophistiqué pour habiller une journée décontractée et suffisamment évocateur pour réussir la transition vers les activités nocturnes, LIBRE est le parfum idéal de la saison et séduit un large public. New York et évidemment MANHATTAN en particulier sont connus pour les femmes qui établissent leurs propres règles et Libre en est une célébration. La lavande, l'orange et la vanille chantent une symphonie de succès et nos études montrent que les hommes réagissent bien et admirent les aromatiques. Mais ce qui est vraiment important, c'est que VOUS L'AIMEZ.

About the Product 

Libre Eau de Parfum is a bold and floral woman’s fragrance. The scent is a celebration of freedom, for those who break boundaries and live by their own rules. The unique long-lasting scent includes a lavender essence from France combined with Moroccan orange blossom and a note of vanilla extract. 

Olfactory Notes: 

Orange Flower Absolute Heart – Grown in the regions of Rabat-Salé-Kenitra in Morocco and handharvested by women. The orange blossom was created by combining the most opulent fractions of the absolute heart. 

Diva Lavender – A fresh and floral expression of the scent, Diva Lavender. Is sustainability sourced. The hand-harvested stem and flower are first steam-distilled, yielding a 100% natural essential oil. The oil is then fractionated to create the strong, floral note. 

Vanilla Bourbon – Sustainably sourced in Madagascar, the extract is obtained through a cutting edge extraction technology, Jungle Essence, which captures the full, rich aroma of the pod. The extract captures the freshly ripened vanilla bean with balsamic tones.

À propos du produit Libre Eau de Parfum est un parfum féminin audacieux et floral. Le parfum est une célébration de la liberté, pour ceux qui brisent les frontières et vivent selon leurs propres règles. Le parfum unique et durable comprend une essence de lavande de France associée à de la fleur d'oranger marocaine et une note d'extrait de vanille. Notes Olfactives : Cœur absolu de fleur d'oranger – Cultivé dans les régions de Rabat-Salé-Kenitra au Maroc et récolté à la main par des femmes. La fleur d'oranger a été créée en combinant les fractions les plus opulentes du cœur absolu. Diva Lavender – Une expression fraîche et florale du parfum, Diva Lavender. Est-ce que la durabilité provient. La tige et la fleur récoltées à la main sont d'abord distillées à la vapeur, produisant une huile essentielle 100% naturelle. L'huile est ensuite fractionnée pour créer une note florale forte. Vanille Bourbon - Provenant de Madagascar de manière durable, l'extrait est obtenu grâce à une technologie d'extraction de pointe, Jungle Essence, qui capture tout l'arôme riche de la gousse. L'extrait capture la gousse de vanille fraîchement mûrie avec des tons balsamiques.

The 2022 First Round concluded Sunday, May 15 after multiple Game 7s required overtime on the same day for the second time in NHL history.

328 – Number of goals scored in the First Round of the 2022 Stanley Cup Playoffs. Only four opening rounds in NHL history have featured more: 1988 Division Semifinals (370), 1992 Division Semifinals (358), 1991 Division Semifinals (335) and 1995 Conference Quarterfinals (333).

51 – Games in the 2022 First Round, tied with the 1991 Division Semifinals (51) for the second most in a round trailing only the 1992 Division Semifinals (54).

37 – Percentage of games in which the winning team overcame a deficit. There were five multi-goal comeback wins and one three-goal comeback win. Only four opening rounds in the past 26 years witnessed more multi-goal comeback wins: 2014 First Round (10), 2017 First Round (9), 2020 First Round (7) and 2013 Conference Quarterfinals (6).

28 – Number of goaltenders to make an appearance in the 2022 First Round, tied for the second-highest total in the opening round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs and highest since the 1996 Conference Quarterfinals. The 1995 Conference Quarterfinals (29) is the only opening round with more.

26 – Years between series victories for the Panthers, who ended the longest such stretch in NHL history en route to setting up a rematch with the Lightning in the Second Round. It marks the ninth time since 1986 that the Presidents’ Trophy winners will contest a playoff series against the defending Stanley Cup champions and first since the 2017 Second Round (PIT 4 - WSH 3).

14 – NHL-leading point total by Oilers captain Connor McDavid, equaling the highest total in an opening round over the past 29 years. Only two players in Stanley Cup Playoffs history have recorded more in an opening round: Mario Lemieux (17 in 1992) and Wayne Gretzky (15 in 1987). Ten of McDavid’s 14 points were assists, joining Vancouver’s Henrik Sedin (11 A in 5 GP, 2011 CF vs. SJS) as the second player in the past 26 years to record at least 10 assists in a playoff series.

10 – Points by Cale Makar (3-7—10 in 4 GP) in the First Round, the most in NHL history by a defenseman through four games played in a postseason and the most in League history in a four-game series. Makar became the first blueliner in Avalanche/Nordiques franchise history with a double-digit point total in a playoff series and stands as one of five active defensemen to achieve the feat: also Adam Fox (2022 R1), Kris Letang (2013 CSF), Ryan McDonagh (2014 CF) and Brent Burns (2019 R2).

10 – Points by Adam Fox (3-7—10 in 7 GP) in the First Round. He became the first skater (defenseman or forward) in Rangers history with at least one point in all seven games of a series.

10 – Number of goaltenders to make their first career playoff start in the 2022 First Round – the most in a single playoff round in NHL history. The previous high of nine was accomplished on two occasions: the 2015 First Round and 2006 Conference Quarterfinals.

8 – NHL-leading goal total by Jake Guentzel (8-2—10 in 7 GP), the most by a player in a single round since Sidney Crosby and Alex Ovechkin each had eight in the 2009 Conference Semifinals. Only 11 players have scored nine or more goals in a playoff series, most recently Johan Franzen in the 2008 Conference Semifinals with Detroit (9 vs. COL) and achieved once by a Penguins player (Mario Lemieux: 9 in 1989 Division Finals vs. PHI).

7 – Number of series that required at least six games. The 2022 First Round became the fourth opening round in NHL history where seven series required at least six games, following the 1991 and 1992 Division Semifinals (8) as well as the 2010 Conference Quarterfinals (7).

8 – Players in the First Round to reach a double-digit point total (Connor McDavid: 14, Carter Verhaeghe: 12, Brad Marchand: 11, Mika Zibanejad: 11, Jake Guentzel: 10, Cale Makar: 10, Adam Fox: 10 & Sidney Crosby: 10). Only two other opening rounds in NHL history have featured more players each register 10-plus points in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs: 1988 Division Semifinals (11) and 1992 Division Semifinals (9).

6.4 – Goals per game in the opening round. After the 2021-22 regular season concluded with an average of 6.3 goals-per-game – the highest-scoring season in 26 years – the 2022 First Round marked the highest-scoring opening round the Stanley Cup Playoffs since the 1995 Conference Quarterfinals (6.80 G/GP).

6 – Teams which advanced after overcoming a series deficit of at least one game (CGY, EDM, FLA, NYR, STL & TBL). The Panthers and Rangers became the 17th and 18th teams in NHL history to earn three or more consecutive comeback wins to close out a series, with New York becoming the first to do so when facing elimination each time.

5.9 – Percentage of brackets in the NHL Bracket Challenge that correctly selected all 8 teams advancing to the Second Round.

5 – Number of Game 7s contested in the 2022 First Round. Only one opening round in NHL history featured more: 1992 Division Semifinals (6).

5 – Goal total for each of the Blues trio of Ryan O'Reilly (5-3—8 in 6 GP), Vladimir Tarasenko (5-1—6 in 6 GP) and David Perron (5-4—9 in 6 GP), marking the first time three players on the same team each scored five or more goals in one round since Canadiens in the 1991 Division Semifinals (Brent Gilchrist, Russ Courtnall & Stephane Richer all w/ 5).

4 – Four of five Game 7s played were decided by a one-goal margin – the most ever in a single round and one shy of the highest total in a single playoff year (1994, 2009 & 2011 all had five Game 7s with a one-goal margin of victory).

4 – Number of division champions from the regular season that advanced – just the second time that has happened since the NHL reduced to four divisions in 2013-14 (also 2017-18).

3 – Number of hat tricks in the First Round series between the Blues and Wild. It was the ninth series in the NHL’s expansion era (since 1967-68) with at least three hat tricks and just the third in the past 28 years, joining the 2018 First Round (PIT: 2 & PHI: 1) and 2012 Conference Quarterfinals (PHI: 2 & PIT: 1). Only one series in Stanley Cup Playoffs history had four: the 1983 Division Finals (EDM: 3 & CGY: 1).

2 – Game 7s that required overtime on May 15. It marked the second time in NHL history that multiple Game 7s required overtime on the same day joining April 29, 1997 during the Conference Quarterfinals when the Oilers defeated the Stars and the Sabres eliminated the Senators.



Great Point Studios, a studio investment/management business specializing in film and television infrastructure, and The New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC), Newark's anchor cultural and civic institution, today announced a partnership with global content leader Lionsgate (NYSE: LGF.A, LGF.B) to build a major new production facility in Newark. The facility will be owned and operated by Great Point Studios. As the facility's long-term anchor tenant, Lionsgate will receive naming rights to the studio. NJPAC will manage public affairs and community relations for the studio and create educational programs and internships for Newark high school and college students.

The facility will be the first purpose-built studio in New Jersey specifically constructed for TV and film production. It will be located in Newark's South Ward at the site of the former Seth Boyden Housing site, which is conveniently located near Newark Liberty International Airport, the Port of Newark, NJ TRANSIT, the PATH system, and several major highways. Operations are expected to begin in late 2024.

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy's active encouragement, in addition to the recently passed legislation on film and television incentives, were instrumental in attracting Lionsgate to New Jersey.

"One of my administration's priorities has been to enhance New Jersey's film industry and create new revenue streams for our State," said Governor Murphy. "With the addition of the Lionsgate Newark Studio, New Jersey will cement its position as a hub for television and film production with its proximity to all forms of transportation and access to more than 14,000 qualified union members in the region. As a result, the introduction of the Lionsgate Newark Studio not only promotes the economic vitality of our state, but also provides good jobs and access to opportunity for all South Ward community members."

"Bringing a project of this magnitude into Newark is a monumental victory for our city," said Newark Mayor Ras Baraka. "It will bring hundreds of new jobs, create new educational opportunities for our students, and invigorate the revitalization of the South Ward."

Great Point Studios founder Robert Halmi called upon decades of experience as founder of the Hallmark Channel and a producer of more than 400 film & television projects to create a facility that fits the needs of today's television and film productions.

The 300,000 square-foot, full-service, modern entertainment complex will include production stages ranging from 20,000 to 30,000 square feet, offices, support space and parking for 400 cars and 65 trucks. The facility will offer a full set of production services on site, including grip and electric, equipment, props, set building, restaurants, location catering, cleaning service, and security. It is anticipated to create more than 600 new long-term jobs, with priority for positions going to residents of Newark, and generate more than $800M of annual economic impact for Newark and New Jersey.

"We have a shared vision for the future of the entertainment industry, and it's reflected in every detail we put into this complex," said Founder & CEO of Great Point Studios Robert Halmi. "Given the rise in studio production post-Covid, we are confident that expanding our studio program into New Jersey will be a welcome addition."

"This is a great opportunity to scale our East Coast studio footprint with our partners at Great Point Studios and the New Jersey Performing Arts Center to support our robust film & television production," said Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer. "Lionsgate Studios Newark is also an important part of our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion, enabling us to create hundreds of jobs, provide educational opportunities to local students and contribute to the economic revitalization of the South Ward of Newark."

NJPAC originated the idea for the project with the City of Newark and the Newark Housing Authority, developed a coalition of partners, and collaborated to bring the project to public announcement.

"NJPAC continually seeks opportunities to act as a catalyst for economic development in its home city of Newark," said NJPAC CEO John Schreiber. "We are grateful to Mayor Baraka and the Newark Housing Authority for embracing our project to bring a world class film studio back to the city where celluloid movie film was invented and to Governor Murphy for creating tax incentives to make New Jersey more attractive to the film industry and especially for the development of studios, like Lionsgate Newark. Without their collective efforts, this project wouldn't have seen the light of day."

The 12-acre, $125 million-plus facility will be owned by a joint venture between Great Point Studios and its institutional partner, an affiliate of Lindsay Goldberg, a private investment firm focused on partnering with entrepreneurs and family-owned businesses to help them grow. Matrix Development will serve as the project developer and Gensler, a global architecture, design and planning firm with more than 3,500 active clients, has signed on to lead the way with architecture and master planning.

The consumer first, leading-edge platform, makes it easy to buy, sell, collect and invest in fine wine with a global community of wine buyers

Cult Wines has today introduced CultX, a next generation trading platform for fine wine verified by advanced blockchain technology with extensive data, analytics, 100k live markets and over $250m of the world's most prestigious investment grade wines to bid on. Users can build, track and manage a fine wine portfolio with real-time data and live markets at their fingertips, instantly and easily.

Despite being a multi-billion-pound industry, the wine sector has not benefitted from innovation or the emergence of new technologies at the same rate as other industries. Plagued by a lack of accurate pricing and exorbitantly high trading fees (typically 10-20%) it has been difficult for consumers to make informed decisions or get fair prices within the market.

Poised to revolutionise trading, CultX has been created to lower the barrier to entry and eradicate inefficiencies that have historically stifled industry growth. The all-in-one self-directed app utilises the Algorand blockchain, providing a reassuring layer of authenticity and provenance to every bottle of wine traded. One of the most powerful features of the blockchain technology allows for immediate transfer of ownership. Once a trade is executed, funds are transferred from the buyer to the seller, resulting in an instant settlement. In most cases with existing platforms, consumers must wait up to three weeks before transfer of funds and ownership is complete.

Cult Wines CEO and CultX Founder Tom Gearing noted, "The unique combination of CultX's global custodial warehousing and blockchain technology allows users a frictionless and hassle-free way to build a physical collection of the world's most prestigious fine wine."

Fuelled by the world's most comprehensive source of powerful wine pricing data from Wine-Searcher, the next gen platform will provide 'always on' access to the world of fine wine, boasting a breadth and depth of data not available on any other platform, as well as intuitive data analytics underpinned by sophisticated AI models. "Our data science team has worked closely with Wine-Searcher's team over the past six months, building pricing models which aim to tackle issues around price transparency, improving accuracy and helping users value even the rarest, illiquid wines in their collection." Gearing added.

"CultX is a super-charged buying and selling platform that will play an integral part in the continued evolution of the fine wine industry," said Gearing. "Our revolutionary wine trading experience and unmatched low trading fees will lead to a better experience and more transparency in trading for users. The platform's built-in global storage solution reduces friction in the buying and selling process by eliminating the inconvenience of shipping, complex logistics and authenticity checks, which will provide peace of mind and drive down transactional costs."

Ten years of historical and current market data from Wine-Searcher provide the most accurate price record for more than 100,000 of the world's top investment grade wines available to search on the CultX platform. Leveraging the best global data on the market gives users full control of their wine to inform, predict, and level up buying and selling decisions. CultX will make it easy to spot an opportunity or react quickly to market trends, being able to liquidate or grow their portfolio from the palm of a hand.

CultX benefits from Cult Wines' 15-year history, performance, relationships, and expertise in the fine wine market. Over a decade in the making, the new venture was born of Gearing's first-hand experience witnessing the inefficiencies, fragmentation and opacity involved with the trading of fine wine. Drawing on Cult Wines' experience in the market, the new platform brings together a team of preeminent talent across key disciplines – like tech, operations, analytics and data – together with integral partnerships to bring the idea to fruition.

#FloridaPeachy #GeorgiaPeachy #PatrioticPeachy OAN's In-Depth Series "One America News Investigates" Surpasses 100 Episodes with One-on-One Interviews with Governor Ron DeSantis and US Senate Candidate Hershel Walker

One America News Network ("OAN"), a 24/7 source of credible national and international news, announced today that its programming series One America News Investigates has surpassed one hundred episodes. In a world of short news soundbites, One America News Investigates provides a rigorous analysis of impactful news stories along with insightful, in-depth one-on-one interviews with leading newsmakers. Two separate episodes of One America News Investigates, debuting on Saturday, May 21st at 10 pm ET feature exclusive sit-down interviews with Florida's Governor Ron DeSantis and U.S. Senate candidate Hershel Walker.

Hershel Walker, best known for his legendary NFL football career, is interviewed by OAN's Caitlin Sinclair. Sinclair caught up with Walker for a thirty-minute exclusive interview in his home state of Georgia. Sinclair takes the viewer on a journey through Walker's amazing life story. Currently, Walker is in a tight race with first-time U.S. Senator Raphael Warnock. The matchup is close and may decide which political party controls the U.S. Senate.

OAN's Florida Political Correspondent, Stefan Kleinhenz, recently sat down with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. Kleinhenz delved into a number of issues with the Florida Governor and likely 2024 Presidential candidate, including woke corporate culture, education, and the migration of people from California and New York into the Sunshine State.

With respect to education, DeSantis sums things up with, "It's important that our school system here in Florida educate kids, not indoctrinate them."

The Florida Governor does not hold back on his thoughts on California's Governor Gavin Newsom, a possible 2024 Presidential candidate, stating, "In California, up until Newsom was governor, they had never lost people on net, in the history of the state." DeSantis continues, "And now since Covid, they have hemorrhaged people. We've never had so many people from California moving into the State of Florida." Sounding more like a 2024 Presidential candidate in the making, DeSantis adds, "The reason why people are leaving… is because, yes they're taxed highly which is bad, but there's high crime, you have woke ideology run amok, you had Coronavirus lockdowns – horrible policies that ruined the quality of life for so many people."

Catch the complete informative interviews of U.S. Senate candidate Hershel Walker and Florida's Governor Ron DeSantis this Saturday, May 21st. One America News Investigates airs every Saturday and Sunday at 10 pm Eastern, 7 pm Pacific.
