    The Birthday Girl Answers the Birthday Questions

    My ears perked up the minute I heard Dr. Hollander playing the familiar strains of “Happy Birthday.” It’s certainly one of my favorite tunes, and the venerable Dr. Jeffrey Hollander, our long-admired pianist in the Lobby Lounge, pounds it out well on the old ivories. I scanned the bar for the per...

    One Night Only in the Lobby Lounge...DeLorenzo and Rivers!

    Sometimes when you think you’re part of the show, you actually end up spending some time in the audience. When you’re in the middle of performing and you get surprised by something that captures your eye that when things get real—and good. I recently had the unique pleasure to visit with a group...
