Out and About, Purim Style

Difficult to believe but all these things seem to be actually in the news. It must be Purim.

  • Woody Allen is going to pimp out John Turturro in Turturro’s new movie. They both live in a Hasidic neighborhood and they use the names Virgil and Bongo to avoid suspicion. Can’t wait to see “Fading Gigolo.”

  • Where do you go to see ice in April? Jerusalem, of course. Chinese ice sculptors headed to Israel for the Jerusalem Ice Festival.

  • Ladino rocker Dan Saks from DeLeon (and also the Macaroons) was in Trinidad for kosher cooking. Really. Video proof here and recipe here.

  • Shimon Peres went to Facebook headquarters in search of a new avenue to peace. Or just for a little peace himself, not clear exactly which.

  • Perhaps more credible is the Backward, featuring Bar Refaeli’s Yo-Yo burka, the Samson juicing controversy and the Goldfarb bar mitzvah review.
