Soon By You Premiere

   I was at the Soon By You premiere at the JCC Manhattan this past Wednesday. It seemed like a lot of the audience was in the episode or friends with the creators. It quite an event. They had an ok comedian before the screening and a very cool Q&A with all of the cast except Z. There was an after party on the roof which included chicken and rice , cupcakes, wine and pumpkin pie that tasted homemade. I also got a chance to chat with some of the cast members and creators who were lovely.
    During the Q&A it was mentioned that they were thinking of making it a 5 episode first season. I really am looking forward to the next episode as well as future seasons.

Brooklyn Half Marathon

    The Brooklyn half marathon was last Shabbos. I don't always know before hand when it will be but when I walk on Ocean Parkway I find out. The runners hit Ocean Parkway at about 9:00 a.m when a lot of people are on their way to shul. Seeing the runners people watch for a few minutes as they go on their way. The cutest thing was when Jewish runners would see us frum people lining Ocean Parkway watching the race. At least 4 different runners wished us good Shabbos. They may have been running in a race, but they remembered it was Shabbos when they saw other Jews. It was really heartwarming to wish them good Shabbos back.

Soon By You Episode 4: The Dates | Soon By You

  I am now posting the fourth episode of Soon By You. I think that this is the best episode yet. David and Sarah F. finally go on a date. The date is at Little Shop of Crafts which I have actually been to. I loved how the date went and how it ended. It may be cliched, but its definitely something to think about.So often things go well until that one thing comes up that we think is a deal breaker. That something that  maybe years from now we realize should not have been a thing at all.
       Another favorite part of this episode is Sarah J's skype date. There are always the girls who will try just anything to find a man. even have a skype date with an Israeli when their Hebrew isn't up to par.
      The event that Noa runs at MJE is hilarious. These characters are never more real I know so many single women like Noa. She probably will be single at 40, but when she does find the one he will be exactly what she was waiting for.  The older single man is also very funny. He is like an Elyahu giving sage advice to the younger ones.
       Now that I have given away the whole story go watch episode 4.

Soon By You Episode 2: The Follow Up

I decided to post the next episode of this web series so no one has to wonder what happens next. Enjoy.

Soon By You - Episode 1: The Setup

   Srugim this isn't but its entertaining nonetheless. Its a chronicle of  orthodox Jewish dating on the Upper West Side in Manhattan.
      This series is about twenty some  things and it makes me realize that not much has changed in dating for Orthodox Jewish dying for twenty something's since I was in my twenties. Not sure if its good or BSD but it just goes to show there is nothing new under the sun.
