#Deal Alert: Gift Giving Comes Early @RaymiNYC

dealalertSONY DSC

With the holiday season looming, Raymi Peruvian Kitchen & Pisco Bar, is rolling out two extraordinary culinary and cocktail  experiences at value-packed prices worth celebrating!

On Monday, November 4th,  the restaurant launched Ceviche Censation. Every Monday from 5 pm to 7:30 pm, with endless portions of Raymi’s signature ceviches AND bottomless pisco sours for just $25…which normally does not cover the cost of a single order of ceviche with a pisco sour!  The ceviches will be on a rotating basis each week:  Salmon, ginger, peanuts, sesame seeds, won ton;’ Mixto, aji rocoto, shrimp, squid, octopus, sweet potato; and Corvina, lime, red onion, sweet potato, habamero , cilantro.  Each pairs particularly well with the grape brandy (pisco) and citrus notes of the pisco sour, essentially Peru’s national cocktail, having been invented in Lima in the early 1920s.

 On Tuesday, November 5th, Raymi added an exciting new pork-osterous value proposition to its already popular Tuesday Night Pig n’ Tails Menu of $8 pork dishes and $6 cocktails, by  presenting a delectable Quarter Suckling Pig, which satisfies at least 2 to 3 people, for only $30, or half the price of the regular $60 charge. It’s served with tamal criolla, house made potato bread, charred scallions and aji verde.  Other pig centric offerings on this every Tuesday evening of pork pulchritude from 5 to 10 p.m. include:  Crispy Pig Ears, nuoc cham, spicy mayo, cilantro; Crispy Tails, soy, lime, Thai chili and coriander; Pork Ribs, spicy aji panca barbecue sauce; and Chicharron Steam Bun, crispy pork shoulder, sweet potato, salsa criolla achifado, spicy mayo.  All at just $8, while  three different pisco based cocktails are only $6.

Raymi Peruvian Kitchen & Pisco Bar is located at 43 West 24th Street. For more information or reservations, please call (212) 929-1200.

#DealAlert: Birchbox Holiday Gifts

dealalertbirch box holidayHoliday season has arrived! They always sneak up on us so fast! I previously wrote a post about one of my first Birchboxes. So now I am here to help give you the idea to gift a Birchbox this holiday.

There are different options for the gift, and it is not only good for the holidays, but also for birthdays too! There is no limitation on reasons to give the great gift of this box. They even offer a Gift Guide Planning for 2013.

The gift of a subscription is the most obvious of the gifts Birchbox offers. The boxes arent only for woman, but for men too! These prices vary on what type you would like. For women there is an option to begin with a 3 month subscription. This costs $30 and is a great way to begin a subscription. If you feel you want to give more, then a 6 month subscription would be great. This half year subscription costs $60.00. These two options are the standard price of $10 per month. If you wanted to buy more, like a full year subscription, then a 12-month subscription would be perfect. With this subscription, you actually save money, it is $110 for all 12 months. There is another option, a Women’s Ultimate Collection. This is more expensive due to the box including more items. It costs $200 and includes a full year Birchbox subscription and five products from Birchboxes List of bestsellers. You also receive a holiday clutch.

The men’s box also has the 3 month, 6 months, 12 month and Men’s Ultimate Collection. The men’s is a bit more expensive, a 3 month subscription is $60, a 6 month subscription is $110, and a12 month subscription is $195. The Ultimate Collection comes with a 12 month subscription and includes 5 large size men’s top sellers, this costs $250.

If you don’t want to buy a subscription or the person you’re purchasing a gift for already has a subscription, you can buy them a gift card for any amount! This way they can use it towards future months or full size products and shop on www.birchbox.com.

Birchbox also has a great way to search for products for Holiday Gifts. You can search for ‘stocking stuffers’, which includes socks, make-up, travel size products, hair clips, and even a cell phone case! There is a ‘Men’s 25 under $25’, which includes 25 products that are highly rated and under $25.00. There are other categories listed, with descriptions to the type of person you are or who you are shopping for. Once clicking any of these titles, you’ll see a list of all the different ‘personalities’ there are at the top of the page. There is also another list for under $25, for woman and even spots for the Editors Top Picks and Food Lovers. Finally, gift sets are a great idea for gifts. This way you can give a gift set of the top picks to your loved ones. You can order any other of the products and have them shipped to the person you are gifting it to. They give the option to gift wrap, while it is an additional fee; it is fabulous because you can choose from different paper and cards to have sent with your purchase. It is your one-stop gift giving site!

So, I just wanted to share some ideas for an all-in-one gift giving website. Opening up others to this is wonderful, and even if they do not want to give or get a subscription, there are other options to share the great products offered on this site. Happy Shopping!

#SCBDFitness: SWEAT Performance Center

scbdfitness -4Have you ever found yourself at the gym staring blankly at the rack of weights? This was a predicament that I faced far too often; retreating to my elliptical in a state of confusion and defeat. As an athlete, I had the basic lifting techniques down: curl 5 pound dumbbells, use leg press machine, hit the ab machine and call it a day. Unfortunately, this method of body sculpting is slightly flawed, in almost every way.

I know what you’re thinking: “LIFTING? I don’t play a sport; I don’t want to get big!” Fear not SCBD readers, because the answer is closer than you think. When my sister started going to a personal trainer, I asked my parents where they procured a money tree, and how I could get one too. The idea of personal training seems out of reach for most, a service that few can afford consistently.  Fortunately, SWEAT Performance Center makes personal training not only effective, but affordable. SWEAT stands for Strategic Weight Energy Activity Training. Located in Upper Saddle River in Bergen County, SWEAT offers personal training, small group training, semi-private training, weight loss, boot camp classes, post rehabilitation, golf fitness and athlete performance training.

-6Damien Johnson, a highly certified and respected personal trainer, opened SWEAT in July 2011. Since then, he has helped numerous people, both athletes and non-athletes, achieve their fitness goals. I asked Damien if he was passionate about what he does, to which he responded: “Passionate doesn’t even cover it; I need to find a better word. It’s my entire life.”

The best part about training is that anyone can do it. You don’t have to be an athlete, a fitness junkie, or even in shape to begin the transition to a healthier body and better life. The hour-long sessions are both convenient and flexible, making training easy to fit into almost any schedule.

-5SWEAT is offering a special deal just for SCBD readers. Stop in to SWEAT at 103 Pleasant Ave Suite C in Upper Saddle River, NJ (right off of Route 17 North) and show this post, and receive 20% off your first single training session. Contact Damien at (201) 483-9473, and visit SWEAT on the web at www.cometosweat.com or check them out on Facebook. Stay fit foodies!
