  1. old news. Not only does it not have female acrobats but it is also doubling as a Uncle moishy / Avraham Fried / Dedi Concert together with the ringling brothers femaleless circus. Mr “Ding” (golding from suki and ding) really knew what he was doing when he approached ringling bros with this idea.

  2. ha! i love all the passover antics of the observant… like “jew day” at six flags, new jersey, where i have many memories of running into every jewish (pre-)teen I ever met in the tri-state area…
