    Lots of performers and being hosted by Elton John. It will encourage donations to organizations that feed the hungry and support first responder families.

    I am opening a bottle of wine I just got delivered from QVC that I heard is pretty good!

    Thanks to VMBer dbueler, with whom I have been keeping in touch and who reminded me about the concert.

    I love the wine suggestion so thank you. I'm not venturing out at all though and this was on QVC and was delivered to my door yesterday (4th floor walk up -- I tipped the Fed Ex guy well) but glad you gave me the suggestion as my guess is I will be holed up until at least early May and there are some wine shops in northern Manhattan that are doing deliveries that I want to support.

    I am trying to contribute to the first responder children's foundation fund but there seems to be something wrong with the website. Maybe they are overloaded, which would be great. Just wanted to mention in case anyone else is having a problem.

    Funny coincidence about that wine, @Flowers ... I met Kevin O’Leary himself at the launch of his wine here back in May of 2013. That’s 20-year-old NFC before I could grow a beard :) seven months before my first Vegas trip, too.

    Even funnier, I actually have the bottle of chardonnay that he autographed for me and it’s on my desk held by one of my favourite knick knacks.

    THAT IS SO FRICKIN COOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I had no idea that he was the wine man. I just had QVC on a few days ago for a big gourmet food special and then I saw him with a meat special (which sold out) and then wine (which also sold out) and I said to myself, "that's the guy from Shark Tank so this must be good." LOL.

    I ordered some cab and chardonnay before it sold out (which happened quickly). Sent my SIL and godmother Moscato. My SIL (Champster1's wife) told me more about his background with respect to wine. I had no idea!!!

    And that's a great picture!! You look so cute!

    And the cabernet is wonderful. My SIL just sent me a text saying it is the best Moscato she has ever tasted.

    Bummed the concert was only an hour but it was EXTRAORDINARY -- from Lizzo to Tim McGraw. Hopefully there is a replay so I would definitely check it out!

    Given the reviews of my SIL I ordered some last night. They still had some available. :) And yes, the BB were great!

    So you were drinking under age. Get the cops on O'Leary.

    The Backstreet Boys was so cool and I am not even a fan. Wife was singing along.

    God I am showing my age.

    I was thinking the same thing as @oghuman but then figured Canada might have a lower drinking age. As I am from Western New York I also appreciate the wines in the background of your photo from the Niagara Frontier, e.g. the bottles of Ice Wine.

    Yes, that was very special as well, with her back up singers no less in different locations.

    I honestly could have watched hours of that. Much more interesting than NBC re-showing 2018 Winter Olympic coverage. It's also really interesting to see how people perform when not over-produced and auto-tuned. Demi Lovato can seriously sing.

    I was drinking way back when the age limit was 18 in the USA. BTW, we had a place that had their own age of 22 to get in. My friends were in their 20's and they were getting carded. I was 17 but they didn't check my ID because I looked of age and became a regular.
    Actually I see no issue with the drinking age being 18, however, I think you should be 21 to VOTE. I don't want to get political so I will leave it at that.
