The Irish Curse Giveaway

A couple of weeks ago, Joe and I went to see “The Irish Curse,” a play at the Soho Playhouse. Neither of us had any idea there was an Irish curse, but apparently it’s so well known that they made a play about it. The synopsis: “The Irish Curse” is a revealing portrait of how men, and society, define masculinity.
In the play, a small group of Irish-American men (all professionally successful New Yorkers) meet every Wednesday night, in a Catholic Church basement, at a self-help group for men with small “privates”. It examines the fundamental question on the minds of men since the beginning of time… “how do I measure up to the next guy?”

So, Joe and I thought the play was kind of funny and now I want you to see it and tell me what you think!

I have 6 tickets to give away (3 sets of 2) – to enter, just leave me a comment and tell me what you like (or dislike) about my site redesign! The tickets are good for THIS WEEK ONLY (Tuesday – Friday at 8pm) – so the contest ends Monday night at midnight! If you don’t live in the New York area, leave a comment anyway and I’ll pick 3 winners to get a surprise package from me!

(Full disclosure: I was given 6 tickets to give away and 2 tickets for a preview of the show).

WINNERS of The Irish Curse: 3, 4, 1 (look for an e-mail from me shortly!)

WINNERS of the surprise package from me: 2, 7, 9 (send me your addresses so I can ship something out to you!)

Love the new layout!! I most like the three links in the banner: recipes, michelin, and products-which reminds me how much i miss those aerogarden updates!!! Your recipes are always so useful and clearly described, I’ve srsly tried like 6 of your last few recipes. ALSO, i love the plaid background.

I love the color scheme, as well as the layout. It is very easy to follow and browse. All in all, very professional and clean layout.

I like it… a little girly…. a little modern without being too cold… i like how all the info is divided into sections… I gotta learn how to do that

I really like the organization and three top content sections on the top right corner. I wish that those photos would tie in a bit better to the purple header though (maybe brighter?)

I’m curious about whether or not you’ve tried to put your ads to the right of your categories/subcontent section? Having it sort of in the center makes it look a bit busy.

I love the new layout. It is fresh and clean. I like the smaller font.

But the coolest part is that the Twitter feed now works! 🙂

Great job, Grace!

Spring cleaning!
I liked the header with the clickable navigation emphasizing your current priorities- Recipes, Michelin and Products.

Your entries take the forefront of the stage and is the first thing your eyes immediately go to.

Furthermore, the right hand categorical navigation has moved to the top making it a lot easier for users to sift through the abundant amount of entries that you have for the site.

Overall, a pleasant user interface that highlights what currently is most important to you!

I love the redesign. I have been following you for a while and have always looked forward to your posts. I like how your main topics are clickable at the top right hand corner of the site. I also, like another poster commented on, like that your twitter feed is now updating. It’s very hip and polished! Me likes!!

Very sleek and professional looking. I like the transparent skyline backdrop in the banner!
