    PawedCast Episode 34: New York City FC Review, NWSL & Philadelphia Union Preview

    in Soccer

    The regular season home finale has come and gone and Orlando City extended its winning streak to five games, sending the huge Citrus Bowl crowd of 40,000+ home with a 2-1 win over New York City FC. The Lions still have the tiniest of chances to sneak into the MLS playoffs as an expansion team, but honestly, finishing ahead of NYCFC feels just as good.

    We're here to break down that win over our fellow 2015 expansion team and we'll talk about our key performances and our selections for Man of the Match. We also discuss the newly announced NWSL team, Orlando Pride, which the club announced on Tuesday, as well as the latest rumors swirling around about a potential trade that will bring Alex Morgan to the City Beautiful. We like the idea.

    TML's own Jeff Milby stops by to give us his postmortem on Louisville City FC's season, and how the affiliation worked (or didn't) for both clubs. And we talk to Eugene Rupinski of The Brotherly Game about this weekend's upcoming regular season finale at Philadelphia Union. It's a jam-packed show!

    Oh, and we give our key match-ups and final score predictions. Here's the rundown:

    0:26- Our thoughts on an exciting 2-1 win over NYCFC and whether two key balls crossed the goal line.

    27:23- Jeff Milby gives us the LCFC season overview from Louisville.

    40:16- Eugene hops on and talks a little Philadelphia Union with us. 

    53:18- Key match-ups and score predictions for the game in Philadelphia.

    PawedCast Episode 33: USA-Mexico Review / New York City FC Preview

    in Soccer

    It seems like only yesterday we were filling the bowl for Orlando City's inaugural MLS match against fellow expansion side New York City FC. But now we're just a day away from the final home game of this first season in the league against...yep, NYCFC.

    We're excited about Friday but also sad to see the season coming to a close. We'll get over that sadness if the Lions can stay in the playoff race for at least one more week.

    With no Orlando City match to break down coming off the bye week, we instead shift gears and look back at the USMNT's disappointing 3-2 loss to Mexico in the CONCACAF Cup on Saturday. We discuss Jurgen Klinsmann and Brek Shea's involvement in the Costa Rica friendly. Plus, we look ahead to OCSC's expansion into the USL and NWSL. We should learn more about the USL team today.

    And we're joined by Rafa Noboa y Rivera, editor-in-chief over at Hudson River Blue. Raf tells us what's new with NYCFC, talks about their recent upswing, and previews what their lineup will look like. He also gives us his final score prediction for Friday.

    And we give you our key match-ups and score predictions as well.

    Here's how the show unfolded:

    0:26- USMNT talk, what's up with Jurgen Klinsmann and a look at Orlando City's upcoming expansion into the USL and NWSL.

    33:04- Raf jumps aboard and tells us what we can expect from the New York City FC match on Friday.

    55:56- Our key match-ups for Friday's home finale for Orlando City and our final score predictions.

    That's it! We'll see you next week.

    The City Winery with New York City , Chicago, Napa , Nashville , Atlanta

    in Pop Culture

    Shlomo lives and breathes for music and works hard to bring interesting, diverse and exceptional talent to City Winery's stage. A member of the core team that founded City Winery in 2008, Shlomo is a well-recognized figure in and around the venue. When he isn't perfecting his Shlo-Mullet hair, rambling in Hebrew or blasting his latest music discovery in the office, he is busy making concerts happen - often 5 days or more per week! Shlomo also books external productions and benefit concerts with Michael Dorf Presents, including the famed NYC venues Carnegie Hall, Central Park SummerStage, The Apollo and much more. When he is not in music mode, he plays for the Israeli Baseball team as the starting pitcher.City Winery is the brainchild of Michael Dorf, founder of the iconic Knitting Factory, one of New York’s longest running music venues, wanted to create a space in Manhattan where he could combine his shared passions for wine and music. How was the idea conceived? After making his first barrel of wine in California with his brother Josh and wine maker David Tate, formerly of Ridge Winery and now at Barnett Vineyards, Michael caught the bug: "For a long time I'd been enjoying wine as a fan-drinking it, taking classes, attending wine dinners-but it was not until I actually started participating in the process of working with the grape, turning it into wine, putting it into a bottle, and watching it develop over time, that I really started to understand wine. And when I would give my friends a bottle of wine with my name on it, most would respond by saying: 'I wanna do that too!' It was this experience that led Michael to conceptualize and start working on the City Winery business plan in 2006.

    in Travel

    This week, the Peter Greenberg Worldwide Radio Show broadcasts from The Chatwal hotel in New York, a landmark building that was once the famous Lambs Club (and is now housing Geoffrey Zakarian’s Lambs Club restaurant). It’s got a wealth of history on 44th street on the west side of Manhattan and is right in the center of the Theater District. Joining Peter will be historian Elizabeth Bradley, who tells the great story of the lovers and the murder of Stanford White, and the very first “trial of the century.” Kevin Fitzpatrick, author of Dorothy Parker’s New York and Under the Table: A Dorothy Parker Cocktail Guide, reveals how many speakeasies were once on 44th street (whatever number you guess, you’ll be way too low), and talks about special secrets of the neighborhood.

    Ashish Verma stops by to talk about how the hotel owners worked to maintain the landmark status of the building as well as maintaining its architectural style, and Nicole Morris and Audrey Romanola, Spa Directors at the Red Door in The Chatwal, speak about the wellness experience and the urban sanctuary the spa provides.

    LL87 New York City - http://www.CarletonEC.com  - NYC LL87: Helping Building Managers Understand LL 87 New York City.

    CEC’s goal is to make it easier for property owners to take steps to not only reduce overall energy consumption and cost, but also improve efficiency in the city. As a building owner in New York City, here’s some important information about Local Law 87 and what is involved in compliance.

    Local Law 87 Background - In 2009, Local Law 87 was passed as a solution for the city of New York to reduce its carbon footprint and decrease energy waste. Compliance with the law is not optional, and property owners are required to undergo the appropriate auditing and reporting to prove that they have fulfilled the necessary requirements. 

    A Professional Consulting Company Can Help - On account of the law being relatively new, the government created a graduated system for businesses to avoid the system becoming overloaded with new audits. Owners must comply by a given year, although property owners are encouraged to move forward with the process to start reducing energy use and saving money now. 

    When it comes to New York City LL 87, the right consulting company makes all the difference. Carleton Energy Consulting specializes in assisting property owners and management through energy auditing services, retrofitting, benchmarking and online fuel systems management. In addition, they offer proven reduction methods for electricity usage, water usage and fuel.
