DEAR READERS: 

Thank you to all that attended "Remembering Ruth" with ANGELO DIVINO on Sunday. We know there were a lot of things going on with Memorial Day and all, so it is especially nice that you chose us for your Sunday afternoon.

This Sunday is LAURIE CLOTHIER in "Come On-A-My House" a tribute to the fabulous ROSEMARY CLOONEY. Her musical director is DAVID DUVALL and they're coming from Seattle for this show. Show time is 2 PM and tickets are only $11 so please come out and bring your friends.  

They are also doing a version of this show as a Brunch Show at AJ's ON THE GREEN on Sunday at 11 AM. There is no cover for this show but you do need to purchase a brunch entree and beverage for each person in your party. Reservations are a good idea for best tables.  
 
WHAT HAPPENED AT APPLAUSE WEDNESDAYS:
Very busy night last week with our singers: GEORGE LEWIS doing "The Moon Was You" and something in I think Italian, what ever it was I didn't get the title? Next we had RAFE CORRELL doing "Imagination" and "I Hadn't Anyone Till You", and JEAN SORF was back from Tucson (the C is silent) as we kidded, and she sang "Night And Day", "If He Walked Into My Life Today", & "Losing My Mind" then PAT MCCANN singing "I'll Take Romance", "I See Your Face Before Me" & "Where Or When". DOUG GRAHAM followed and sang a mini-medley of "Nothings Going To Harm You" with "Somewhere", "Waiting For Life To Begin" & "Body And Soul". Funny thing, I was at a party on Sunday and talking to DAVID ZIPPLE who said he heard Doug sang one of his songs at Cabaret Open Mic recently and at first I was afraid he was going to ask for his Royalties. Next we had ALAN JON to sing "Who Can I Turn To" & "Chances Are". We had a group of guys there for dinner celebrating the anniversary of THE SOUND OF MUSIC and wearing big flowery hats and one guy named DAVID sang "I Could Have Danced All Night" and he was really good too. Then CLAUDIA SUSSMAN gave us "Every Time We Say Goodbye", "So In Love" & "I'll Be Seeing You", then we had NONI LAMBERTSON with "Maybe This Time", "Over The Rainbow", & "More Than You Know" followed by MARGE HARRIS doing "Can't Help Loving That Man" and Larry Harris with "The Lady Is A Tramp" and KENNETH UGARTE with "Caught In The Storm" and "Let Me Be Your Star", and his friend and I hope new regular singer ENRIQUE BARAJAS who was fantastic doing "This Is The Moment" and "Empty Chairs And Empty Tables" and JACI DAVIS with "Misty" and "Cabaret". And JASON HULL joined us and sang "I Wish You Were Here" and I think "Is It Over Yet" - my notes were a mess so I hope that was you Jason - if not I will make it up by posting this wonderful picture of you with LYNDA CARTER....
Taken at the SPA RESORT CASINO which you must have learned about by reading my newsletter, right?

So we may possibly be moving the time up one hour next month, June on Wednesdays for summer and see how it goes. We'll let you know for sure, but come and join us this week with Joel Baker on piano for one of the only two places you can go and hear singers sing live with a real pianist on a real baby grand piano. We really are doing something special and we want everyone to know about it - spread the word on YELP and any other Web review sites. We appreciate it.

I'M HAPPY TO ANNOUNCE THAT THREESIXTY NORTH WILL FEATURE AN EXQUISITE 3-COURSE DINNER AS PART OF THE VALLEY'S RESTAURANT WEEK THAT RUNS MAY 26th - JUNE 7 AND WILL BE AVAILABLE TO ALL THE APPLAUSE WEDNESDAYS AUDIENCE AND SINGERS. WHAT A GREAT WAY TO ENJOY A FABULOUS MEAL AT AN AMAZING PRICE.   
  
 
WHAT HAPPENED AT AJ'S ON SATURDAY:
We had another absolutely amazing night last week with a full house and a birthday party for BECKY of 18 people brought by MARGE & LARRY. And we sure gave them all a great show doing one song each and another one later, starting with MARGE HARRIS and "Cabaret", then LARRY HARRIS & "Till There Was You" and later together did "God Bless The USA", "God Bless America" & "Hawaiian Wedding Song" complete with a Hula dance, you should see Marge move those hips! GEORGE LEWIS sang "The World Is Mine Tonight", "The Birth Of The Blues" and "It's Now Or Never" only in Spanish? And the very talented FRANCESCA AMARI was there to sing "Better Days", "It's Too Late Now", "Orange Colored Sky", & "King Of The Road". DENNY - no last name but you see him on Sundays at Melvyn's, did "All Of Me", Sit Right Down And Write Myself A Letter" & "Baby Face". Then ALAN JON with "What Kind Of Fool Am I", "Autumn Leaves", & "Misty", followed by CLAUDIA SUSSMAN with "Maybe This Time", & "Losing My Mind". Next it was DONNY TEETERS with "Hold Me", "I Wish You Love" & "My Ship", and ANGELO DIVINO came to sing "It Don't Mean A Thing" & "Sentential Me", & "Just One Of Those Things" and his friend JASON, who I didn't get his last name but he lives in La Quinta so maybe he'll be back, sang "They Didn't Believe Me" & "Lucky To Be Me", then JAN ABRAMS, who did a great dinner show here on Sunday with CHRIS MARLOWE on piano, sang "I'll Be Seeing You", "As Time Goes By" and got wild applause for her "Wind Beneath My Wings".   Come out and see us this Saturday when our special guest pianist will be JOEL BAKER, and remember, reservations are always a good idea. See you then and don't forget to YELP US and tell your friends too that we have the best singers in town and we do it LIVE!    

AJ'S NOTE: There is a HUGE parking lot just past the front lot on your left. Remember to make reservations and see you next time.

RECIPE OF THE WEEK
 
         
    SRIRACHA - IT'S ALL THE RAGE...  
HONEY SRIRACHA CHICKEN IN FOIL MAKES IT EASY    

INGREDIENTS:
1/2 cup uncooked instant brown rice
1/2 cup water
1 box (7 oz) Green Giant™ healthy weight frozen vegetables (sliced carrots, sugar snap peas, black beans and edamame lightly tossed with butter sauce), thawed
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (from 20-oz package)
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon Sriracha sauce
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro (optional)

DIRECTIONS:
Heat oven to 350F. In small bowl, mix rice and water. Soak 5 minutes; drain. Stir in thawed vegetables.

Cut 4 (10x12-inch) sheets of heavy-duty foil. Spray center of one side of each with cooking spray. Spoon one-fourth of the rice mixture on center of each sheet. Top each with 1 chicken breast.

In small bowl, mix honey, lime juice and Sriracha sauce. Spoon evenly over chicken.

Bring up 2 sides of foil so edges meet. Seal edges, making tight 1/2-inch fold; fold again, allowing space for heat circulation and expansion. Fold other sides to seal. Place packets on ungreased cookie sheet with sides.

Bake about 30 minutes or until juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (at least 165F). Let stand 5 minutes. Sprinkle with cilantro if desired.

Newly Formed Cabaret Hall of Fame™ to Honor the World's Greatest Cabaret Performers
Metropolitan Room's Joseph Macchia and Bernard Furshpan Team Up to Inspire

"The word 'cabaret' means 'room': what happens in a show depends on the dynamic between the performer and the audience in that place on that night. This is not television!"  - Time Out London

New York - March 12 - Metropolitan Room's Joseph Macchia and Bernard Furshpan are excited to announce the formation of the Cabaret Hall of Fame™ (CHOF), as well as the Inaugural Induction Black Tie Gala on January 16th, 2016 at Metropolitan Room, named New York's Best Cabaret by New York Magazine.

The mission statement of the CHOF is: To heighten the awareness and the true meaning and purpose of a Cabaret venue and performance. To reach out to a larger audience for purposes of increasing Cabaret show-goer population, reinforce the beauty of live entertainment, and create and support livelihoods of performers, venues and all support people and business in the Cabaret community. To foster and nurture new generations of performers and audiences dedicated to the intimate art form of Cabaret.

Furshpan says, "Many people have never experienced a true Cabaret performance and are not aware that it's a theatrical art form whose origins are in Europe. In cafes and bars poets, artists and composers could gather to perform or read, trying out material and providing a stimulating evening to patrons for the price of a few drinks. We want to bring the message to the wider world that there is nothing else like the experience of watching a performer in a small room. You are literally with that person and it's incredibly emotionally satisfying. Our labor of love will help insure the existence and understanding of Cabaret performing in the future by establishing a legitimate bricks and mortar organization that recognizes the value of Cabaret and the people who have contributed, molded and refined it. It will fill a void in the music business."

Macchia adds, "It is a beautiful and thought-provoking art form and people put their lives into it: their heart and soul and money and time. I want to turn people on to it and insure its growth and future. A lot of young people don't really understand Cabaret. I want to change that. By establishing a Cabaret Hall of Fame I feel we can educate future audiences and preserve the past history of great performers who have made it a huge part of their lives. "

The CHOF was conceived by Macchia, a longtime cabaret producer and Assistant Booking Manager of the Metropolitan Room. When he mentioned it to Managing Partner/Owner Bernie Furshpan, who is the organizational mastermind behind January 2015's triumphant Guinness Book of World Records event (which broke the record for longest continuous Variety Show), Furshpan said, "Let's do it."  Macchia says, "Once you've programmed 300 performers for round-the-clock-entertainment for 60 hours for a Guinness event, establishing an international Cabaret Hall of Fame seems slightly easier." They envision a future venue that will eventually house history and artifacts of Cabaret performing, as well as host events including the annual inductions.

In advance of that, one of the team's first orders of business is to seek and form an International Executive Committee composed of producers, club owners, press, performers and others whose mandate it will be to select iconic candidates from around the world, from whom they will choose the first honoree for the inaugural induction ceremony on January 16, 2016.

A committee and timeline for nominations and announcements will be released in the near future. Please stay tuned for further exciting developments of the Cabaret Hall of Fame™.
