NATURAL CHOICE

Three-week-old Yaba Bath & Body is my new, favorite drugstore/cosmetics counter. Sure, there aren’t many displays and the store is all bleak white walls and metal shelves, but the products - and affordable prices - speak for themselves. Comment.

TAKING THE HIGH ROAD

It’s hard to imagine now, but just a few years ago, Seventh Avenue was the only game in town when it came to Park Slope dining. No one was thrilled with the uninspired restaurants, but if you wanted to eat in the neighborhood, you worked with what was available. Comment.

MOVIE AND DINNER - IN BED

If you tell your friends you had dinner in bed on a first date, will they call you a tramp? They won’t if your horizontal meal happens at Monkey Town’s screening room. Comment.

FAREWELL TOUR

After seeing productions of Shakespeare’s plays updated with modern dress and staged in parks and parking lots, the Globe Theatre’s presentation of "Measure for Measure," at St. Ann’s Warehouse in DUMBO beginning Dec. 20, will seem refreshingly old fashioned. Comment.

OLD FRIENDS

Upon turning the last page of Alison Houtte’s memoir, "Alligators, Old Mink & New Money," GO Girl was grinning from ear to ear. She knew she must seek out the style guru who penned this comic, inspirational tale and ply from her the secrets of living an even more glamorous, fashionable life. Comment.
