Seen & Heard: ROC Discount

••• During January and February: ROC is giving Tribeca business owners and workers 20% off weekday lunch (noon to 4 p.m.), Monday through Friday, dine-in only. You must bring your business card each time.

••• The Mommy Poppins site has introduced deals, Poppins Perks: First up, 35% off a semester of Music for Aardvarks in Manhattan (available through Monday).

••• On Groupon: $40 for two semi-private swim lessons at Take Me to the Water. Redeemable at eight locations, including two below Canal. Note: It must be used by Mar. 1.

••• @SheSoMoney tweeted that “Da Mikele offers FREE wine w/dinner & BYOB until they get their liquor license, score in Tribeca.” Tribeca Citizen is @tribecacitizen, by the way, and it gets frisky sometimes.

••• Paul Andrew, lead pastor of Liberty Church, emailed: “We are launching our weekly services [at Tribeca Cinemas] on Sunday, Jan. 23, and it will be our regular venue throughout 2011. We are hoping to make a very positive and lasting contribution to the Tribeca community and of course any of your readers would be very welcome to attend our launch in a few weeks’ time.” (He obviously hasn’t met you.) Here’s a video if you’re curious.

••• The next Tribeca Meet & Greet—for local business owners and people who like free wine—will be the evening of Jan. 27 at New York Sports Club on Reade. It’s organized by the nice folks at BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center.

••• I’m getting tired of typing, so I’m copying this from the press release: “The Museum of Jewish Heritage—A Living Memorial to the Holocaust in New York is pleased to announce the launch of “Coming of Age Now, Coming of Age in the Holocaust” (, a new multimedia website designed by C&G Partners to introduce middle and high school students and educators to the stories of young people who survived the Holocaust. This free website, launched today on International Holocaust Remembrance Day, will help students of all backgrounds around the globe create a personal connection to history and discover the relevance to our world today.”

••• I just learned that a new store in Tribeca is going to be announced tomorrow but I can’t say anything. Stay tuned….

••• Paulo Rocha of Porto, Portugal, emailed about the establishment he just opened with Alfredo Pontes: Tribeca Café Bar and Restaurante! “It’s all about Jazz, Blues and Soul,” he wrote. “A few years back I lived in NYC and I loved Tribeca. NYC and Tribeca spirit is here now!!! At least I am trying to live the spirit of NYC (which I do miss a lot), and also trying to change peoples opinion about USA.” What, they don’t like us? He sent some photos:
