Mother, daughter tell story of ‘One Ugly Egg’

first_img Allen wanted her daughter to know that being different did not mean that she was not special.“Bethany was special, not because she was different but because God had a plan for her life,” Allen said. God also had a plan for Allen’s life. God gave her the desire and the ability to tell about His love through the story of an ugly egg.“God’s Special Plan for One Ugly Egg” is the story of an ugly egg that overcame the adversities of being an “ugly egg” to discover God’s special plan for him. That discovery healed his heart and changed his life, just as Bethany’s discovery that God has a plan for her life changed her outlook on life and spiritually healed her heart. Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Book Nook to reopen Latest Stories Allen asked Bethany to illustrate her book, “God’s Special Plan for One Ugly Egg” and Bethany eagerly agreed.“I love to draw and I thought it would be cool to draw the story,” Bethany said. “We worked together. My mom would tell me the story and I would draw the pictures that I thought would also tell the story.”Mom and daughter weren’t always “on the same page.” Allen would visualize the story a little differently from her daughter. However, Allen was telling the story with words and Bethany was telling it visually. As they worked together, things came together. The words and the drawings became as one. “God’s Special Plan for One Ugly Egg” is different from most other books of its kind.It’s a storybook and it’s also a coloring book. It’s interactive.“We wanted children to read the book, to color the drawings and to draw their own feelings in the book,” Allen said. Bethany illustrated the book is such a way that there is space for children to be “drawn in” to the story.Mother and daughter said the beauty of the ugly egg is that God does have a plan for everyone and in God’s eyes there are no ugly eggs.For more information about “God’s Special Plan for One Ugly Egg,” email Martha Allen and Bethany Harry at [email protected] or call 334-465-5074.

Nightlife veteran John Blair inks deal for Hell’s Kitchen club

first_imgMerchants Hospitality Inks Club Deal at Cachet Hotel (Google Maps, Playboy Club) New York City’s nightlife scene is dark for now, but one veteran club owner is betting on things bouncing back.Nightlife impresario John Blair signed a lease for a 20,000-square-foot venue at the former Playboy Club at the Cachet Hotel in Hell’s Kitchen. The asking rent for the space was about $75 per square foot.It’s a tricky time to begin working on opening a nightclub, as venues have been shut down since Gov. Andrew Cuomo reintroduced Covid-19 restrictions on places like bars and restaurants last month. OAR Management, owner of the hotel at 510 West 42nd Street, structured the deal so that Blair’s lease goes into effect only once those restrictions are lifted, according to Meridian Retail Leasing’s James Famularo, who negotiated the deal.“If you didn’t structure it like that, a lot of tenants would say, ‘Why rent now? Why not wait until Cuomo says we can open things up again?,’” he said.Another incentive: Blair gets to take over the roughly $12 million buildout the Playboy Club did on the space.“When the situation changes, you can change the sign in front and start making money,” Famularo added.Blair, a veteran of the gay nightlife scene famous for spots like the Roxy and Limelight, had previously operated a different club, the XL, at the hotel back in 2012, when it was known as The Out Hotel.The deal fills the space left vacant when the Playboy Club exited the property in late 2019 amid allegations of malfeasance at the hotel by former Merchants partner Adam Hochfelder.Contact Rich Bockmann Share via Shortlink Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink TagsCommercial Real EstateCoronavirusmerchants hospitality Full Name* Email Address* Message*last_img read more
