Seen & Heard: Cookie Bar

••• Cookie Bar, the company founded by cookbook writer Dorie Greenspan and her son Josh, is participating in the Liddabit Sweets/McClure’s pop-up at 39 White (Church and Broadway), today and tomorrow only. I bought a packet of six sables (three pecan, three plain—I think—for $12) and a packet of two World Peace cookies (Valrhona cocoa, Valrhona bittersweet chocolate, and fleur de sel) for $6. I’m a little concerned, however, that I evidently look like the kind of person who needs “fleur de sel” translated.

••• Everything Khushi is 25% off through Dec. 24. Use the code ELF.

••• From Manhattan Children’s Theatre: “Due to increased demand we’ve added weekday performances of ‘Lula Bell in Search of Santa,’ just in time for the kids’ Winter Break. You can check out our globe-trotting heroine as she tracks down the jolly old elf this Tuesday, Dec. 21—Thursday, Dec. 23 at 1:00 p.m. And, as a little gift from us to you, take 10% when using the code SHOPPING.”

••• From Moomah: “Creativity workshops now 50% off: $112 for 5 creativity workshops ($225 value)! Choose from Paint like the Greats, Boogie Doodle: Introduction to Animation, Optical Toys or Imagine Motion: Animation for Beginners! Students will have the opportunity for hands-on learning in an intimate classroom environment, exploring new ways to make art with instructors who are specialists in their field. Deal ends on December 31, 2010. First workshop begins on January 10, 2011.” By the way, Moomah will be open New Year’s Day but closed Jan. 3–5 for renovations.

••• From Trinity Church: “Children’s beaming faces and joyful voices will fill the sanctuary of historic Trinity Church (Broadway at Wall Street), New York City’s more than 300-year-old Episcopal parish in lower Manhattan, on Friday, December 24 at 3 p.m. at the church’s annual Christmas Eve Family Service. Led by The Rev. Mark Bozzuti-Jones, the festive service includes a special Christmas Eve homily especially for children, who gather at the front of the church to listen to the Christmas story, and the singing of Leo Sowerby’s ‘The Snow Lay’ [What?! —Ed]  on the Ground by the Trinity Youth Chorus, the church’s youth choir.

••• Soho Rep is selling tickets to the Dec. 29 and 30 performances of “Jomama Jones * Radiate” for $20; the code is GLITTER. Also, on Dec. 31, the 9:30 performance is followed by a New Year’s Eve afterparty.



  1. Thank you (I think) for the original heads up about this pop up. Stopped by first thing and stocked up on caramels, brittle and cookies for little gifts. Then I got home and tried a piece, and then tried a couple more pieces and then tried a little more. Oops. Well the pickle people weren’t there yet when I went so I have to go back anyway and can restock. Your idea of a nice bloody mary (or 2) on Christmas Day is one I can get behind!

  2. Yeah, last time the pop-up was open I bought three packs of caramels as stocking stuffers, and they all got eaten within a week. I just had one of the chocolate cookies, and they’re mighty fine.
