The Honeybell Creamsicle Milkshake at Woolbright Farmer’s Market

Picked by Marie Speed, Group Editor

“Jesse Goldfinger has a cool juice trick built into the market now with all kinds of fresh and healthy juice combos. But with honeybells in season, and the legendary creamsicle flavor shining like a beacon, I had to go for it. Organic milk, ice cream. honeybells. $4.99.

The Wiz

Picked by John Thomason, Assistant Editor

“Long before ‘Wicked’ put the witches of ‘The Wizard of Oz’ into a new perspective, the classic L. Frank Baum story had already received a revisionist Broadway treatment. Premiering in 1975, ‘The Wiz’ recast the story of Dorothy, the Lion, the Scarecrow and the Tin Man in the context of African-American culture, with an all-new slate of rock, gospel and soul-inflected songs. One of the very first examples of an all-black cast on Broadway, ‘The Wiz’ is rarely revived regionally, which makes the Maltz Jupiter Theatre’s new production, directed by Andrew Kato, a special treat. It runs now through Feb. 1.”

Free Fro-Yo

Picked by Stefanie Cainto, Web Editor

“The word ‘free’ has always been a favorite of mine – especially whenever it precedes the word ‘food.’ So its natural that free frozen yogurt is on my list this week. CUPS Frozen Yogurt is celebrating the grand opening of its Town Center at Boca Raton location on Saturday, Jan. 17, and it’s offering free frozen yogurt from 2-4 p.m. Stop by for a chance to win frozen yogurt for a year.”
