White Christmas
Winston-Salem Theatre Alliance
Winston-Salem, NC WhiteChristmas

“White Christmas” based on the 1954 film starring Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney and Vera-Ellen follows WWII Veterans Bob Wallace and Phil Davis on their post-war song and dance tour, and their eventual hot pursuit of a beautiful singing sisters duo. Winston-Salem Theatre Alliance actor Mary Isom plays the younger sister Judy Hanes. She’s joined by David Joy who plays Captain Bob Wallace. Based on the beloved, timeless film, this heartwarming musical adaptation features seventeen Irving Berlin songs and a book by David Ives and Paul Blake. Veterans Bob Wallace and Phil Davis have a successful song-and-dance act after World War II. With romance in mind, the two follow a duo of beautiful singing sisters en route to their Christmas show at a Vermont lodge, which just happens to be owned by Bob and Phil’s former army commander. The dazzling score features well known standards including Blue Skies, I Love A Piano, How Deep Is the Ocean and the perennial favorite, White Christmas. WHITE CHRISTMAS is an uplifting musical worthy of year-round productions.

Music and Lyrics by Irving Berlin
Based Upon the Paramount Pictures Film Written For the Screen by Norman Krasna, Norman Panama and Melvin Frank
Book by David Ives and Paul Blake

17th Annual Brenner Children’s Hospital Toy Run

Toy Ride

17th Annual Brenner Children’s Hospital Toy Run. A fully escorted ride from Greensboro Harley-Davidson to Brenner Children’s Hospital at Wake Forest Baptist in Winston-Salem in an effort to collect toys and raise additional funds for the Children’s Hospital. Not only does it help benefit the children during Christmas time, but all throughout the year.

This Toy Run continuously furnishes the play rooms, allows children to take toys to play with in their rooms, and to take toys home with them. “It’s not just Christmas, it’s all year long.” says Beth Smith, Child Life Specialist at Brenner Children’s Hospital. She explains that it’s not Christmas until the motorcycles arrive at the Hospital!

The Holiday Concerts sponsored by FOX8 and Old Dominion Freight Line have provided The Salvation Army with food to help feed those in need. Millions of cans of food have been collected since 1987. This is the 27th year for the Greensboro concert, the 25th year for the Winston-Salem concert and the 8th year for the Burlington concert. In total, we have collected 6.7 million cans for families across the Piedmont.

This is the largest and most important food raising event of the year for The Salvation Army. Last year, over 20,000 people where served.

Annually, over 17,000 people attend the concerts. In 2013, we collected over 468,000 cans of food with 30 companies participating in the Holiday Food Drive.

food-driveFor years, the Holiday Concerts have been held at the Greensboro Coliseum, Lawrence Joel Veteran Memorial and in Burlington and are a proven tradition offering quality holiday entertainment. The Concerts invite families to attend an evening of music provided by the Greensboro and Winston Salem Symphony’s. The “cost” to attend is a can of food.

In recent years, the need in the TRIAD has exceeded the cans collections at the concerts. That is why FOX8, Old Dominion Freight Line and The Salvation Army are reaching out to local businesses to participate in an eight week campaign culminating with the Concerts (Winston-Salem: December 13, Greensboro: December 14, Burlington: December 19).

The Basil Leaf: Some Like It Hot, So Let’s Turn Up The Heat Till We Fry

THE BASIL LEAF: SOME LIKE IT HOT, SO LET’S TURN UP THE HEAT TILL WE FRY

Originally posted on Food and Brew Review:

Jerry and I are pepper heads. We love spicy Asian food. The hotter; the better. My parents however prefer mild but flavorful dishes. This can make take-out for the four of us tricky. If a restaurant has food hot enough for Jerry and me, my parents usually can’t find anything they can eat and swear we are trying to kill them (Cause of Death: Death By Capsaicin). That problem is solved when we order from The Basil Leaf. This neighborhood restaurant is one of our favorite go-to choices for take-out. On Sunday evening, we were craving a pepper hit. Jerry phoned in our order, and it was ready shortly after he arrived at the restaurant. As soon as he was back home and the Styrofoam containers hit the table, we dug in.
