Veselka's Vegan Borscht, A Cult Favorite from NYC's East Village (+ Recipe)

Veselka is one of the most popular and longest running restaurants in Manhattan's East Village. From Patti Smith to Julianne Moore, Veselka is the favorite NYC restaurant for many a celebrity, and because of its cult following, it has popped up in plenty of films, including "Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist" and Julianne's own "Trust The Man". The menu has a little bit for everyone, and has plenty of options for vegans and vegetarians. The restaurant is known for quite a few dishes, but its most famous plate is probably their pierogi, filled with an option of potato, cheese, meat, spinach & cream cheese, sauerkraut & mushroom, or arugula & goat cheese. They also have much beloved vegan cabbage rolls, stuffed with wild mushrooms and rice and covered in a choice of savory mushroom gravy or tomato sauce. Order the vegetarian platter, and these aforementioned cabbage rolls come with an assortment of pierogi and kasha on the side. But today, as another card in this week's theme of my favorite NYC vegan eats, I wanted to show you all how to make their very special vegan borscht. If you want a nice bowl of it on a particularly cold Manhattan day, I would suggest getting to the restaurant the earlier the better because this soup's so good that it's notorious for selling out! Can't come to New York? Well, fortunately, Veselka's very own cookbook, appropriately titled "The Veselka Cookbook", shows fans of their borscht how to make it in the confines of their very own kitchen! Try this with a dollop of Tofutti's Better Than Sour Cream and enjoy the taste of an East Village staple! -------------------------------------------------------- Veselka's Vegan Borscht 3 medium to large beets. (Or 6 small to medium) 2 tsp vegetable oil
 1 large garlic clove, minced
 1 large onion, coarsely chopped
 3 stalks celery, coarsely chopped 3 medium carrots, coarsely chopped
 4 cups vegetable broth 2 cups water 1 cup canned diced tomato and liquid 1/2 small head cabbage. 1 15 oz. can large lima beans (aka butter beans), rinsed and drained 1/3 cup white vinegar
 2 teaspoon salt
 freshly ground black pepper, to taste
 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
 1/2 teaspoon Tabasco Vegan sour cream substitute Fresh dill, to taste Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Trim stalks and taproot from beets. Wash the beets and wrap in aluminum foil. Bake about 1 hour, until beets are tender and skin separates easily from the beet. Let cool. Peel beets and chop coarsely. In a large pot, heat vegetable oil. Saute garlic, onion, carrots, and celery until onions are just translucent. Add the beets and sauté another minute or so. Add vegetable broth, water, and tomato. While mixture heats to a boil, slice the cabbage into ½ inch wide strips and add to pot. Simmer covered for 45 minutes to an hour, until everything is tender. 5-10 minutes before the soup is done, add the lima beans. Season to taste. (The vinegar is really what makes this soup.) Serve with sour cream and fresh dill. Makes about 16 cups of soup. (Serves 4-8)

Veselka's!!! When I lived in New York I used to start my day there with a cup of coffee and a book and then make my way uptown. Such a great little place :)
When do you add the vinegar? The recipe doesn’t specify
@Ccsmith or the Worcestershire or Tabasco?
@peppermintt I love their tea selections. I always get tea and a nice thick slice of apple crumb cake.
@kristenadams I sang this. I can't lie.
I'm all about that Borscht

Why Is Electrolyte Water Essential for the Body?
We are all aware that the benefits of drinking water are very remarkable: from controlling body temperature and blood pressure to enhancing mood, memory, and productivity. But do electrolytes added to the water, increase the benefits of H2O? What are Electrolytes? When dissolved in water, electrolytes are minerals that contain an electric charge. The meals you consume and the liquids you drink, keep your body electrolytes. These minerals, such as sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium, transport via the body and use their electrical energy, which include: · Balance your body's water amount · Balance the pH level of your body · Move your cells with nutrition · Stir your cells with garbage · Regulate your nerves, your muscles, and your heart and brain · Help reconstruction of tissue damaged Electrically loaded minerals such as sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium are injected into electrolyte water. Electrolyte water can sometimes be called mineral water or alkaline water. Whether you think it or not, seawater and tap water even contain different kinds of salt electrolytes. It is not recommended to drink salt water; it has a correct balance of minerals, which is essential for health promotion. Drinking water-electrolyte was specially developed with an optimal concentration of only the most advantageous electrolytes to boost hydrating and other body processes. Like sports drinks, electrolytes have been added for increased hydration but sports drinks often contain high quantities of sugar and calories. What is Electrolyte Water Up to 60% of the human adult body is comprised of water. Your body cannot execute all its vital tasks when you lose even a modest bit of this 60 percent. Electrolytes are dehydrated and control your hydration. Electrolyte levels in your blood may be too low in some circumstances, resulting in an imbalance. An electrolyte imbalance might adversely affect your health. Symptoms maybe – · Fatigue · Fast or irregular heartbeat · Numbness and tingling · Confusion · Muscle weakness and cramping · Headaches · Convulsions 1. Improves Performance During Workouts It is recommended that electrolyte-enhanced water be drunk frequently while practicing to restore the electrolytes lost in sweat. This improves the functioning of your heart, brain, muscle, and nerve system. 2. Supports Nervous System All of us can imagine sports athletes picking up sports beverages to recharge their lost electrolytes, but not only athletes have to maintain their bodies fluid and hydrated. Understanding the need for continuous moisture keeps us safe and productive in the end. Even a minor loss in moisture can result in reduced cognitive capacities, less attention and awareness, and less time to respond. Your reaction time is equal to someone with a blood level of alcohol at dehydration of 3% by .08%. 3. Protection from Heat Stroke Hot environments place you in danger from moderate heat rash to life-threatening heatstroke in a range of heat-related diseases. Your body usually handles heat by releasing it and sweating it across your skin. However, in hot temperatures, this cooling system can begin to malfunction, resulting in a dangerously high body temperature. You need to limit your heating time to avoid heat-related ailments. However, it is also essentially important to get sufficient fluids and electrolytes to keep your body cool. You can get electrolyte waters of different flavors all enriched with electrolytes and essential minerals at sites like eBay such as TrueGether. They offer timely discounts to their customers and all the products are very affordable!
How to Change Seat on American Airlines
When you book a flight, one of the first things you're asked to do is choose your seat. But how do you know which seat is right for you? When traveling on a basic economy fare, you'll be assigned a seat at check-in or at the gate. The main cabin requires you to pay for advanced seat assignments or to do it for free at check-in 48 hours before departure on domestic flights or 24 hours before departure on international flights. But if you're in the mood to get your preferred seat when booking your ticket, here's what you need to know about the different options. There are a few points to Change Seat on American Airlines will depend on two different criteria. The class of service you purchased Your status with American Airlines. If you have no status with the airline: If you have purchased First or Business class tickets, you can change your seat to any other seat within this cabin by visiting AA.com and entering your ticket locater and name. If you’ve purchased a regular economy ticket (not a Basic Economy), you will be able to select from seats located in the rear of the aircraft. Or, you can purchase an upgrade to a seat up front (reserved for those with status) or to one that includes extra legroom (Main Cabin Extra). If you purchase a Basic Economy ticket, you will not be able to choose your seat. You’ll typically receive your seat assignment at check-in or at the gate. If you have Gold status and purchase a regular economy ticket, you’ll be able to sit in the priority section of economy on your flight (but not Main Cabin Extra). If you want access to the Main Cabin Extra seats, you’ll get a 50% discount, but only if there is space available 24 hours before departure. If you have status as Platinum, Platinum Pro, or Platinum Exec (50k to 100k miles a year and $6k to $12k spend), you get free access to any upfront economy seats and MCE seats. Basic economy still has no access regardless of status. Note, it’s possible if you have no status and you purchased a regular economy ticket that you see no seats available for selection. This typically happens when the flight is oversold, or fully sold, and the seats up front are the only ones available and being held for status members. Check back on the website regularly to see if any regular seats open up for you to reserve. If you are booking basic economy tickets, you will NOT be able to select seats together unless you pay for them. Basic economy fares DO NOT INCLUDE FREE SEAT SELECTION. If you purchase tickets and are not on the same reservation or do not select seats ahead of time, that is your fault. If your family is flying together, and you have purchased tickets for all family members, you may want to ask if the airline will be able to seat your family members together. Remember if you want to sit together you need to purchase tickets that are on the same locator. You cannot just purchase tickets all on the same locator. What you need to do is select seats ahead of time that are together. Whether or not you have to pay for these seats depends upon what seats are available at the time of booking. If you purchased seats ahead of time and then were split up, you definitely have a cause to complain. In this case, if you paid extra for a seat and did not sit in that seat, you can request a refund from American. But if you did not pay, did not select your seats and then as a group of 4 or 5 people expect to sit together when you go to check in, that is your fault and NOT THE AIRLINES. Sitting in the wrong airplane seat isn't ideal for anyone; it can be a hassle to change your seat, but that doesn't mean you can't do anything about it. We provide a guide on how to solve your issue quickly on your own and also list the fastest way you can contact the airline's agents when need be. American Airlines charges a fee for seat selection during booking, but disabled people can select a seat for free. However, you may choose a place and then decide to change it after booking. Whether you want extra legroom, a prime seat, a preferable window seat, or a change from one class of service to another, here's how to change your seat selection.

You can do it when you buy your ticket, at the airport or online through your reservation once you've checked in. Here's how to choose your seat on American Airlines. Choose a Seat When You Book Your Ticket If you want to choose your seat ahead of time, the easiest way is to pick a seat when you book your ticket. The website will show you a map of available seats on the plane, and you can pick one that works for you. Choose a Seat at the Airport If you don't get your seat assignment in advance or if you want to change it, visit the airline's kiosk at the airport to see what's available. Selecting and changing seats is simple with the kiosk, but remember there are no guarantees that a good seat will be available when you arrive at the airport. When you book your flight on American Airlines, you can choose your seat based on the type of experience you want to have. Whether you are looking for extra room or peace and quiet, these tips will help you pick your perfect seat. Traveling with an infant If you are traveling with an infant, American Airlines offers bassinets for babies under 2 years old who weigh less than 20 pounds. If you require a bassinet, call the airline after booking your flight since they are limited and can't be reserved in advance. Extra room If you need more legroom, the best place to sit is in the exit row, which has at least 7 inches of extra legroom compared with other rows. There is a fee of $39-$99 per person for these seats, depending on the flight duration and time of year. Exit row seats also cannot be occupied by anyone under 15 years old or someone traveling with an infant. The Main Cabin Extra section is located at the front of the economy cabin and has approximately 6 inches more legroom than other economy seats. These seats come with a fee starting at $9 per person for flights over 1 hour and 15 minutes long. For an ordinary economy seat but with extra room to stretch out, choose a seat Choose a Seat Online After Checking In After checking in online and getting your boarding pass, log into American Airlines' AAdvantage website (link in Resources). Click on "My Trips" and find your reservation number. Then click "Change Seats," select the one you want and print out the new boarding pass. This option is available up until 30 minutes before departure. Where can I see seat maps for flights? When you book a flight operated by American Airlines, you'll see the seat map after you choose your flights. Why couldn’t I choose seats when I booked my flights? If you are unable to choose seats when you book, check back closer to departure or American will assign you a seat when you check in. My flights are confirmed, why can’t I reserve my seats? American Airlines reserves some seats until the day of departure to allow AA airport personnel to accommodate passenger needs. If you are unable to reserve a seat at the time of booking, you may get your seat when you check in for your flight. If you want a seat closer to the front of the plane, book as early as possible. Seats become available as they are purchased by other travelers. You can visit aa.com frequently to check the seats that are still available for your flight. What happens to my seat if there is a schedule or equipment change? American Airlines will make every effort to reseat passengers in the same seats. When this isn’t possible, we’ll attempt to seat you in a like seat. We appreciate your cooperation when special circumstances won’t allow us to reseat you in your original assigned seat.

Going on Vacation This Summer? Welcome to the 'Revenge Travel' Economy
The clock had not yet struck noon on a recent sunny day in Copenhagen, but the hour didn’t stop Hannah Jackson and her friends from ordering a bottle of Champagne. After the waiter at one of the outdoor restaurants that line the Danish capital’s colorful harbor popped the cork, the four women from Texas gleefully toasted to their European adventure. “This is my first trip in more than two years,” said Jackson, 32. “We are celebrating every moment we can.” Because no phenomenon can be real until it can be hashtagged, the travel industry has been quick to brand the impulse driving Jackson and countless others this summer as “revenge travel.” Likerevenge spendingand evenrevenge bubble-tea drinking, the phrase refers to consumers’ increased willingness to cough up cash after 28 long months of lockdowns and restrictions. In travel’s case, that means a newly unbridled demand for vacations that are more frequent, more indulgent, and—more than anything—far from home. That demand got a boost on June 13 when the U.S. stopped requiring a negative COVID-19 test for entry. But as it rises to and even surpasses pre-pandemic levels, a host of challenges, from inflation to war to, yes, the lingering threat of COVID-19, casts a shadow on the rosy predictions of a rebound. Will this be the summer in which the travel industry does indeed get revenge on the pandemic? Or will its hopes be dashed once again? “The truth is that tourism is rebounding very, very quickly,” says Luís Araújo, president of the European Travel Commission (ETC), which represents the continent’s national tourism organizations. “It’s quite impressive.” At this juncture, revenge travel looks to be off to a good start. Among Europeans, 70% are planning vacation trips between now and November, according to an ETC survey. The numbers are almost as strong among Americans, with 65% planning leisure trips within the next six months according to MMGY Travel Intelligence, a global marketing and research company based in Kansas City. According to Mastercard, bookings on short and medium-haul flights have surpassed pre-pandemic levels. And travel searches for the first quarter of 2022 were above their 2019 levels, according to Google, while searches for passport appointments jumped 300% in the first three months of this year. “Pent up demand is already delivering rapid growth,” says David Goodger, Europe director for Tourism Economics, a U.K.-based company that provides forecasting and analysis to the travel industry. It’s driven, he adds, “by excess savings accumulated during the period when people couldn’t spend or travel as usual.” Those extra savings are affecting not only the amount of travel people are undertaking but the kind of travel as well. After decades of appealing to budget travelers with low-cost flights and party buses, many European destinations are emerging from the pandemic with a new emphasis on upscale travel. “A lot of enterprises, big and small, have spent the past two years renovating their facilities, upgrading, investing in their hospitality—adapting to the new needs of the customer,” says Araújo of the ETC. “We also see a lot of countries adjusting their communication to high-end travel.” Certainly companies that specialize in high-end travel are experiencing a boom. At Black Tomato, a luxury tour company with headquarters in London, the interest in itineraries that have guests island hopping in Greece or bottling their own perfumes in Provence is at record levels. “Demand for Europe is insane right now,” says Brendan Drewniany, director of communications. “We’re advising our clients that if they want to go to specific destinations in Europe at this point they’re going to have to be pretty open-minded about alternatives.” Those extra savings are affecting not only the amount of travel people are undertaking but the kind of travel as well.

In fact, the notion of revenge travel first emerged ahead of the summer of 2021, when everyone thought the worst was over and the world would soon open up again. In many ways, it did. Domestic travel in many places surged to nearly 90% of its 2019 rates that summer, and, as MMGY senior analyst Leanne Hill points out, tourists spent unusually high amounts that were, she says, “largely revenge-travel oriented.” But slow vaccine rollouts and adoption rates, coupled with the slew of ever-changing travel restrictions and newly emerging virus variants ultimately stymied expectations. International tourism was down 67% in July 2021 over its rates that same month in 2019. This time around, the obstacles to the fulfillment of travel fantasies, vengeful and otherwise, are less about the virus (all of the experts TIME consulted agreed that there was little tolerance for more lockdowns and restrictions) than other ills that have sprung up in its wake. “Inflation and staff shortages is the twin-headed monster threatening the travel recovery this summer,” says Tourism Economics’ Goodger. Staffing shortages are cutting into service across Europe. Many hotels have responded by automating some aspects like check in, and trimming once routine benefits like daily room cleaning. Restaurants from Copenhagen to Madrid have cut their operating hours and, in some cases, shut down altogether. But perhaps nowhere is the impact of the shortage on travelers clearer than in the scenes of chaos emerging from airports across Europe and the United States: flight cancellations, long waits for baggage that frequently fails to appear altogether, excruciating lines through security. “Demand is ramping up much more quickly than businesses, having shed workers during the pandemic, have been able to recruit for,” says Goodger. And although American travelers are, according to MMGY estimates, planning on spending an average of $600 more per trip than they did a year ago, it’s unclear, analyst Hill says, “whether that’s because of increased costs or overall willingness to spend more.” There are clear signs, she adds, inflation is definitely starting to bite. “We’re beginning to see travel intentions start to erode slightly, particularly among travelers making less than $100,000.” Those concerns are echoed among Europeans travelers, according to the ETC, which found that while only 7% of travelers expressed concern about inflation and costs affecting their vacations in 2021, 13% do so now. At the high end too, pricing is “definitely a real challenge,” says Black Tomato’s Drewniany. “Hotel properties are all still recouping and it’s not that they’re trying to be extortionist, but prices are definitely worse. So it’s a challenge to explain and translate that to clients.”

지금껏 몰랐던 뉴욕 2 - 플랫아이언 빌딩
뉴욕 맨해튼을 걸어 가다보면 아주 독특하게 지어져 지나가는 사람들의 시선을 한 눈에 사로잡는 건축물이 있다. 바로 플랫아이언 빌딩. 아마 영화속에서 간간히 보았을 수도 있다.  1902년에 완공된 이 건축물은 미국의 영화와 방송 및 광고에 단골로 등장하는 뉴욕의 상징적인 건물이다. 스파이더맨의 실제 정체인물 피터 파커가 용돈벌이로 사진을 찍어 팔던 데일리 버글 신문사의 사무실이 위치해 있는 곳이다. 좀비 영화 나는 전설이다 에서 윌 스미스가 머스탱을 타고 폐허가 된 뉴욕을 질주할 때도 이 인상적인 빌딩은 여지없이 등장한다. 맨해튼의 매디슨 스퀘어 파크Madison Square Park 지역의 비좁은 삼각형 부지에 자리잡고 있는 플랫아이언 빌딩Flatiron Building은 부피와 하중이 엄청났던 기존 건축물의 석재 골격 대신 강철 골격이 사용된 세계 최초의 건물로 유명하다. 총 87미터, 22층 높이를 가졌지만 흥미롭게도 가장 좁은 부분의 폭이 불과 2미터에 불과하여 그 생긴 모양새가 마치 다리미 같다고 해서 설계 당시 이름이었던 풀러 빌딩Fuller Building 대신 ‘플랫아이언’이라는 애칭으로 불리게 된, 뉴요커들의 특별한 사랑을 받는 랜드마크이다. 건물의 폭이 워낙 좁은 탓에 기존의 석재 골격으로는 도저히 건물의 가용공간이 나오지 않자 부피는 현격히 줄고 내구성이 뛰어난 철재 골격으로 시공하여 현재의 뱃머리를 닮은 보기 드문 외관을 가지게 되었다. 앤드루 카네기가 대량 생산한 값싸고 품질 좋은 철강이 이 독특한 외형의 빌딩 골조에 최초로 적용되며 석재에서 강철로의 건축 소재의 혁신이 시작되었고, 인류역사상 전례가 없는 미국의 건설 붐을 타고 바야흐로 뉴욕발 초고층 빌딩의 시대가 열릴 수 있었다. 걸어서는 오를 수 없을 만큼 높아진 플랫아이언 빌딩 내부에는, 1853년 뉴욕 건축박람회에서 처음 선보였던, 발명가 엘리샤 오티스의 엘리베이터가, 에디슨에 의해 뉴욕에서 최초로 실용화된 전기에너지를 안정적인 수직상승의 위치에너지로 바꾸어주고 있었다. 또한 같은 시기에 오티스 엘리베이터 회사의 유리 승강기가 파리의 에펠탑에 장착되며, 고대 바벨탑 이후로부터 1930년 뉴욕의 크라이슬러 빌딩이 완공되기 전까지, 인류가 쌓아 올린 세계 최고의 건축물 자리를 꿰찬 명물 철골 구조물을 세계적인 관광명소로 부각시켰다.  뉴욕에는 플랫아이언 빌딩과 외관이 매우 흡사한 건축물이 멀지 않은 거리에 또 하나 있다. 우리에게 영화 존 윅으로 익숙한 건물이다.  영화 속 건물은 뉴욕 월스트리트 비버 빌딩으로, 구글에서 검색하면 영화 속 이름처럼 콘티넨탈 호텔로 검색이 된다. 뉴욕을 가게 되면 플랫아이언 빌딩과 비버 빌딩을 비교하며 보는 재미도 꽤 쏠쏠할 것이다.
