No Broadcast Tonight


Kudos to our dear friend, Rabbi Yaakov Spivak at the Jewish Radio Network, for hosting the past eleven episodes of The Kosher Scene Radio Show. We’re so excited to announce that starting next week, we’ll be moving to a terrific new net station.  We’ll be bigger and better than ever with new tech abilities and worldwide coverage. Check The Kosher Scene Radio for updates and details about our new and exciting venue. This week, however, we will be taking a week hiatus from radio while we make the necessary transitions.

Last week’s show featured Moshe Aaron Zimmerman from Liquors Galore (1212 Avenue J; Brooklyn, NY 11230-3702; Telephone: 718.338.4166), if you missed it here is the archived show. In the past, Aaron has shared some basics of wine tasting on this blog’s pages, with a four part series on Enjoying Your Wine (BuyingTastingStoring and Grape Varieties). His talk on our show was interesting and very informative.

Here are the links to our past guests’ audio files:

We have a great lineup of upcoming guests, enjoy a quiet night off tonight, but be sure to listen our new show. We’ll give you the details at the beginning of next week.

This Evening’s Internet Radio Guest Will Be…


Last Wednesday, we spoke to radio and TV personality, newspaper columnist Rabbi Yaakov Spivak. We spoke about some interesting insights on Megillahs Esther. If you missed the broadcast you can hear it here.

This evening we will feature a conversation with Aaron Zimmerman, owner of Liquors Galore (1212 Avenue J – between 12th and 13th Streets; Brooklyn, NY 11230-3702; Telephone: 718.338.4166).

Mr. Zimmerman opened his first liquor store in 1998, it was located 2 blocks away from his current location, it was long and very narrow. Three years ago he moved to his present location into what is one of the most beautiful, best organized wine and liquor stores. When you first walk into this well appointed store you can’t being impressed by the looks, the knowledgeable stuff and the encyclopedic knowledge of their product by the store owners. Wines, for example, are organized by country of origin and – within each country – by winery. Center isles display sale items as well as some of the newest products.

Aaron has shared some basics of wine tasting on this blog’s pages before, with a four part series on Enjoying Your Wine (Buying, Tasting, Storing and Grape Varieties). This evening we will talk about some of the newest kosher wines to enjoy on Purim and Pessach and suggestions on how to enjoy the Arba Kosos at both sedorim without getting sick.

Just listen in, gentle reader, at 8:00pm (Eastern Time) on Wednesday, March 2nd, on Jewish Radio Network. Enter the site and click on the red “here” under the white “Radio,” then wait about 30 to 90 seconds for the application to start streaming.

Purim Koton at Liquors Galore


This past Thursday evening, Liquors Galore (1212 Avenue J – between 12th and 13th Streets; Brooklyn, NY 11230-3702; Telephone: 718.338.4166) celebrated Purim Koton with an extensive wine tasting, food, live shtetl music, the Zev Brenner Show, a goat for petting and miniature horse rides for the kids.

It was mobbed outside, mobbed inside.

The air was festive, management and workers were merrily dressed up…

Aaron Zimmerman, welcoming one and all!

Aaron Zimmerman has written a four part series for The Kosher Scene on how to buy wine, how to taste it, how to store it, and the characteristics of the different grapes (here, here, here and here).

A nice selection of wines and liquors was served by both the Royal Wine Corporation and Happy Heart Wines.

...and a wine tasting we will go.

From the Chateau Piada Sauternes to the Or Haganuz Cabernet Franc, the wine choices – in all price ranges – were truly outstanding.

It felt like like being at a celebration in the old shtetl, with these musicians…

The two of them, plus a violin and a string bass completed the lively band

All the merchandise was discounted by 20% from the marked price. A nice selection of canapés, kishka and petit fours rounded up the evening. The chassidische owners of Liquors Galore truly know how to celebrate Purim Kuten!!! I can’t wait until their next event, hope it’s soon.
