ItalianStunners7 Italian Stunners to Wine Up Your Saturday
Saturday November 17th 12:00pm - 4:00pm
Scarsdale - Zachys Wine and Liquor, 16 East Pkwy, Scarsdale, NY 10583, USA

Join Zachys in Scarsdale on Saturday, November 17th for a fabulous Italian lineup! This complimentary tasting includes 2 levels of Volpaia’s 2015 Chianti and a show-stopping 2013 Barolo. Elvio Cogno’s 2013 “Ravera” Barolo earned 97 points from both Wine Enthusiast Magazine and James Suckling, landing the #28 spot on Suckling’s Top 100 Italian list for 2017. This year, Cogno was named a Top 100 Winery by Wine & Spirits. His news-worthy wines – especially the Barolos – do not disappoint. For a true Old World classic, Volpaia is one of the historic names in Chianti, dating back to 1172. In 1250, Volpaia was a founding member of the Lega del Chianti (Chianti League). Their 2015 Chianti Classico fetched 92 points from Wine Enthusiast, foreshadowing the incredible promise of the Gran Selezione “Coltassala.”

The Addams Family on Stage at SHS (Sat. 17 Nov, 2018 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm)

In the kooky, upside-down world of the Addams Family, to be sad is to be happy, to feel pain is to feel joy, and death and suffering are the stuff of their dreams. Nonetheless, this quirky family still has to deal with many of the same challenges faced by any other family, and the spookiest nightmare faced by every family creates the focus Lippa, Brickman, and Elice’s musical: the Addams kids are growing up. The Addamses have lived by their unique values for hundreds of years and Gomez and Morticia, the patriarch and matriarch of the clan, would be only too happy to continue living that way. Their dark, macabre, beloved daughter Wednesday, however, is now an eighteen year-old young woman who is ready for a life of her own. She has fallen in love with Lucas Beineke, a sweet, smart boy from a normal, respectable Ohio family — the most un-Addams sounding person one could be! And to make matters worse, she has invited the Beinekes to their home for dinner. In one fateful, hilarious night, secrets are disclosed, relationships are tested, and the Addams family must face up to the one horrible thing they’ve managed to avoid for generations: change.

Performances will be in the Scarsdale High School auditorium on Friday, November 16th and Saturday, November 17th at 7:30pm, as well as on Sunday, November 18th at 2:00 pm.

Tickets are available at theaddamsfamilyscarsdale.eventbrite.com or at the door.

John McEuen at the Emelin Theater (Sat. 17 Nov, 2018 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm)

Nitty Gritty Dirt Band’s John McEuen & The String Wizards Present “Will the Circle be Unbroken," Saturday November 17 at 8 pm

John McEuen: mandolin, guitar, banjo, fiddle
Les Thompson: bass, vocals, bouzouki
John Cable: guitar, vocals
Matt Cartsonis: vocals, mandola, guitar

Join founding member of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band (NGDB), John McEuen and his cast of virtuoso musicians for a special night filled with the music and memories of the landmark platinum album Will the Circle Be Unbroken and the NGDB’s incredible career. McEuen’s multimedia show chronicles the band’s fifty year journey including: 8mm footage from the earliest days in 1967; stories from behind the Iron Curtain as the first American band to tour Russia in 1977; and vintage photos, footage and audio from the famed ‘Circle’ recording session. Such hits as “Mr. Bojangles” “Will the Circle Be Unbroken” “Buy For Me the Rain” and “Dance Little Jean,” hot bluegrass, and rare early music, are interwoven throughout.

Fellow NGDB band members Les Thompson and John Cable, and guitar virtuoso Matt Cartsonis, all stellar musicians in their own right, join host John McEuen to share (in front of the screen) hits and stories leading up to this magical time when three generations came together to record Will the Circle Be Unbroken. Initiated by McEuen, the icons of Bluegrass, Country and West Coast Country Rock, including Roy Acuff, Doc Watson, Merle Travis, Jimmy Martin, Earl Scruggs, Vassar Clements, and Maybelle Carter, convened for six hot days in August 1971, to produce the benchmark record that is just as relevant today (still an Amazon top-20 album)! The Library of Congress inducted the multi-platinum ‘Circle’ as one of the most important American recordings. ‘Circle’ is also in the GRAMMY Hall of Fame.

The journey concludes with music from McEuen’s new album, Made in Brooklyn, allowing the audience to experience the entire span of the artist’s incredible 50 years in music.
