    The Web site development firm that is creating moderntribe.com handed over our "Coming Soon" page this week. When I opened the document in Photoshop, I got a message warning that I was missing a font: DIN Neuzeit Grotesk. Sound German to you? Babelfish translated the phrase for me as Modern Times Grotesque. I was a taken aback at how similar "Modern Times" is to "Modern Tribe"--just add "grotesque" (bizarre, absurd...). Because I was ignorant about fonts, I didn't understand then that "grotesque" simply refers to Sans Serif fonts. But the...

    This news story really caught our attention today- a Montreal court awards money to a family whose child may have had the worst bar mitzvah ever. A janitor at the hotel where the party was thrown stole all the ice and then tried to sell it back to the family.

    I've been meeting people on the Internet... and my husband approves. I haven't met so many people online since I JDated back in 2003. Then, it wasn't unusual for me to meet three or four different Internet strangers a week. As a married woman, I sometimes miss those moments of anticipation ("will he look like his picture?"). Now, in pursuit of e-commerce, once again I am chatting with strangers and meeting up for coffee. It's different, but no less exciting. And so far, my business-related Internet hookups have been as...

    We attended an incredibly fun event today at the New Shul in NYC - the "Battle of the Briskets" a brisket bake off! Members of the shul were invited to enter their brisket into the contest - and lucky us, we got to try all of them. The judges included Gail Simmons (who we spoke to afterwards and was really, really lovely), a judge on the show “Top Chef”; Joshua Neuman, publisher of Heeb Magazine; and food writer Ed Levine. One of our favorites was the "Jewritos Brisket" served shredded...
