On Thursday October 25, the Dominican Women’s Development Center, the largest independent Dominican founded organization in the United States, held their 30th Anniversary Gala at the Grand Hyatt Hotel, where they honored composer, lyricist, and actor Lin-Manuel Miranda, and other notable people, including philanthropist Jean Shafiroff.

The gala raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to help fund the center’s diverse programs for Latina women and families of the Washington Heights community.

Lin-Manuel Miranda’s father Luis A. Miranda, Jr. introduced Rosita Romero, DWDC Executive Director, who danced her way on to the stage before offering a rallying speech, saying “Our evening’s theme is transforming lives, but the first life the DWDC transformed was mine.” She spoke about the center’s achievements and how they have helped more than 11,000 individuals and families with support services, referrals and resources.

HEALTH DEPARTMENT CLOSES NYC WAHLBURGERS

Image
I have been wanting to try Wahlburgers for a while now and last night I was pretty shocked when I went to visit the Upper East Side location and a sign posted on the door said, "Closed By Order Of The Commissioner Of Health And Mental Hygiene".  The restaurant is located at 1633 Second Avenue at the corner of 85th Street.

Look, we know they are "The New Kids On The Block" in New York City and they are nice guys, I've met them, but a prime location on the Upper East Side, surrounded by all the rich and famous should not only do great business, they should be clean and vermin free. We count on restaurants to do the right thing to make sure they are serving us safe food in a safe place. We really hope they will fix the problems soon and operate a safe operation with great food.Maybe then I will be able to taste one of their burgers.


When looking up the health department report below, we were kind of disappointed.
