Breakfast at the Breslin

Azucar at the Breslin

What better way to start out a Friday the 13th than with a yummy breakfast at the Breslin?

The Breslin, with quite an unassuming facade, is adjacent to the Ace Hotel main entrance and accessible from the Hotel’s lobby.

Just a few blocks from the office, it makes a perfect breakfast spot. The restaurant’s diners are a good combination of tourists and locals having breakfast before starting their day.

Breakfast started off with a full French press of strong delicious coffee ($7.50).

For the meal, the author and guest had the pumpkin pancakes with spiced chili pecan butter ($14) and skirt steak with green sauce and fried eggs ($17), respectively. The pancakes were unbelievably light and tasty; the steak was tender and perfectly cooked. Both dishes were delicious. (Check out the mouth-watering pictures below).

Service was very attentive.

It’s a great addition to the neighborhood.

The next time you get into the area before your scheduled meeting at your New York virtual office, stop in for a great breakfast at the Breslin.

Thank you notes from Mrs. Z’s Class

We just received our Thank You notes from Mrs. Z’s class for sponsorship of a project through Donor’s Choose.

Project: What is ‘Double Click’, Mrs. Z?

Project Description by Mrs. Z:

I teach students with mild to moderate disabilities in a high-need community. Despite how intelligent they may be, most are not working at grade level.

Unfortunately, my students’ economic needs at home do not include computers. Their only exposure to computers is at school. The problem is that mine rarely work.

My school is equipped with the internet and I have access to several online web sites that support student learning. My students would benefit from the use of a netbook. They would be able to access websites for specific learning tasks, research and word processing functions.

It is heart breaking to have one of my students walk in the room, knowing it is their turn on the computer only to be shot down because it is broken.

My students are unique in that they are forced to think outside of the box due to their learning disabilities. I truly believe they are the people who will cure cancer, dispose of world hunger and take us to space. We need your help in unlocking this potential.

Letter from Mrs. Z after the project was funded:

Dear VH International Business Solutions, Inc,

Thank you so much for your donations. The very first day of school my students started asking about their computer time and we began the same old song and dance that they were not working. When I told my students about the grant funding they were very excited and can’t wait to get started.

On a very serious note, your funding not only puts a smile on a child’s face, but improves our overall society. As a teacher, mother, taxpayer, I thank you for your investment in the future.

With gratitude,
Mrs. Z.

Letter from Mrs. Z after the project was completed:

Dear VH International Business Solutions, Inc,

Thank you so much for your generous donation. My students are so excited to”play” the online learning games. I have noticed an overall motivation increase since the computer has been implemented as a part of our regular routine.

All of our schools in California are facing severe budget shortfalls. Without your support, many of my students would not have access to computers at all. Imagine, a whole group of students without computer skills going out into the world!

Thank you for spending your hard earned money on deserving students.

With gratitude,
Mrs. Z.

Thank you notes from Ms. G’s Class

We just received our Thank You notes from Ms. G’s class for sponsorship of a project through Donor’s Choose.

Project: Help my Students Learn ‘Bone’ A Fide Biology!

Project Description by Ms. G:

There’s no bones about it! My 9th grade Biology students love learning about their own bodies. I teach a special education class in a high-need, low-income community in New York.
In October we are starting a unit on human body systems, beginning with the musculoskeletal system. Students love seeing how common daily tasks, such as brushing their teeth or kicking a ball, require the coordination of many muscles and bones. My students learn especially well when they have a visual aid to accompany a concept or topic.

Last year we used a classroom skeleton inherited from an older school, but it has no skull, no arms, no forelegs, and many broken ribs. It is a sad example of the human skeletal system.

We need a classroom skeleton that will show students a complete model of the bones in their body. Special education students are especially impacted when they learn visually, aurally, and kinesthetically. Your donation will make it possible for my students to see their bodies in action through a classroom skeleton. Please help!


Letter from Ms. G after the project was funded:

Dear VH International Business Solutions, Inc,

Thank you so much for your generous donations towards my project! I am indebted to you for helping my students understand the musculoskeletal system and for encouraging them to gain an appreciation for the human body. I cannot wait for the skeleton to arrive in my classroom–I am sure that my students will be pumped to see it in action!

Your donations will truly ensure that all students learn using all learning styles and modalities. The skeletal model will be a great teaching tool for years to come. Thank you so, so much.

With gratitude,
Ms. G.

Letter from Ms. G after the project was completed:

Dear VH International Business Solutions, Inc,

Thank you so much again for your generous donation. Because of your thoughtfulness, we were finally able to replace the old, broken skeleton in my classroom. Since receiving the skeleton, we have used it as a model during our unit on the musculoskeletal system. It is such a great tool for students to see different types of joints, different types of bones, and how it all fits together.

The budget in our school district is facing great cuts this year, and it’s become harder and harder to bring new tools into your classroom. Your generosity helped making learning come alive to all of my students. You truly made a difference.

With gratitude,
Ms. G.
