    Real Housewives to Provide Real Good Advice

    The inside story of one of the true indestructible forces of nature, the archetypical Jewish Mother, will be explained in detail as part of a fun, entertaining discussion and book signing on Sunday, June 6 from 4-6pm at the downtown Hilton Hotel. Called Secrets of a Jewish Mother: Real Advice, Real Stories, Real Love, the event will feature authors Jill Zarin of the TV show The Real Housewives of New York, her sis-ter, radio host Lisa Wexler, and their mother Gloria Kamen. The event is sponsored by the Womens Alli-ance of the Jewish Federation and promises to be both provocative and entertaining. Tickets are $36 and are available at www.JFRI.org. We also assume refresh-ments will be served though whether its wine or chicken soup, were not sure. That said, would it hurt you to go?

    At 91, Everyone Deserves a Facelift

    One of the most beloved retail fixtures on the East Side is Adlers Hardware, which opened its doors for business some 91 years ago. So what better way to celebrate than to liven up the Wickenden Street land-mark to show that even after more than nine decades of family ownership, theyre still, in their words, look-ing pretty darn sexy. Long known for its outstand-ing paint department, the store has undergone what owners Marc and Harry Adler call a total soup to nuts renovation that will keep the customer-friendly store a local must-visit destination for hardware, paint, wallpaper and eco-friendly interior and exterior design. Harry still wishes hed been able to follow his preferred career path as a second baseman for the Bos-ton Red Sox. (Im hoping they might need a 55-year-

    old rookie who loves the game, but has no actual high school, college or minor league experience.) His real hope however, is that the stunning new store redesign will ensure that the Adler tradition will live on well into its second century.

    Gobbles, Growls, Oinks and Howls

    Easily one of the more interesting of the ongoing local fundraisers, Zoobilee will again be held at the Roger Williams Park Zoo on June 26. Its a time when many of the areas finest local restaurateurs descend on the Zoo for a swanky evening designed to bring out the animal in all of us. Carnivores, vegetarians and everything else in between are invited to prowl the grounds in search of that perfect appetizer or entre. Guests are also invited to dress up in animal costume if they are so inclined. Call the Zoo at 785-3510 to make a reservation. And if you dont get through the first time, dont be discouraged. It just means the lion is busy.

    Asian Delights

    One of the most visually spectacular shows of the year arrives at the Providence Performing Arts Cen-ter (PPAC) on June 26-7 when Shen Yun, a classic presentation of Chinese dance and music, takes center stage for a visual spectacular that critics call truly breathtaking. Performed with a live orchestra, the event combines acrobatic talent, colorful pag-eantry and the exotic music and dance of China as it happily returns to the city after a successful run last year. Tickets are available by calling 421-2787 or visit-ing www.ppacri.org. The performance is sponsored by the Falun Dafa Association of N.E.

    Mondo Mangia

    Federal Hill remains one of the best places in New Eng-land (and yes, that includes Boston) to sample delicious Italian cuisine. But there are other ethnic culinary experi-ences to be had as well. The best way to get a sample of both options, without breaking the bank, is to go up there yourself and take advantage of the Federal Hill Stroll set for June 8. The food will be served from 4
