The Home View #1 Griselda
Sofia Vergara became best known to TV viewers around the world for being part of the cast in the brilliant TV comedy, Modern Family. In her latest project – a dramatic limited series called Griselda which she stars in and executive produces – Vergara is Griselda Blanco, a Colombian drug lord who was also known as “the Cocaine Godmother”. Set in Miami during the 1970’s and 80’s, Griselda was a also a ruthless and ambitious woman who led one of the most powerful cartels in history. This series was co-created by Narcos and Narcos: Mexico showrunner Eric Newman, and all six episodes were directed by Narcos director, Andres Baiz. For Sofia Vergara, this is a major step to a new chapter for her as an actress (and producer). Griselda is available now on Netflix

The Hot sip The Smokey Negroni
Executive Table Group is one of our closest partnerships on Our City Tonight TV and we have always enjoyed filming in their restaurants, located all over the Lower Mainland, including Free Bird Table & Bar Restaurant in Richmond (5991 Alderbridge Way). It is there, you can enjoy a wonderful winter cocktail called The Smokey Negroni. We were joined at Free Bird by Claire Wright, Partner & Director of Operations for Executive Table Group.“The Smokey Negroni use craft gin with botanicals that evoke a sense of freedom and uniqueness,” Wright tells us,“and involves a cedar smoked element, which is best finished at tableside.” Trying this at home? Start with 1 oz Gin, .5 oz Campari, .5oz Red Vermouth, dash of Orange Bitters, Lightly muddle 1⁄2 orange wheel in rocks glass, add ice, add liquor and bitters. Stir thoroughly. Then add your choice of wood smoker/chips of choice – cedar and alder are most aromatic. 

The Home View #2 Messi’s World Cup: The Rise of a Legend 

He is, without much debate, the greatest soccer (or football) player on the planet. Lionel Messi has won many personal awards, including like Ballon d’or eight times, domestic titles in Spain and France and capped off a wonderful international career by winning the 2022 World Cup for his home, Argentina. He was also crowned the 2022 tournament’s best player. Now, as he winds his career down playing for Inter Miami in MLS (we think he’s winding down), Apple TV gives his fans Messi’s World Cup: The Rise of a Legend. Told in his own words, with the most personal interviews to date, this 4-part documentary also includes conversations with teammates, coaches, competitors, devout fans and commentators who talk about the incredible influence and impact he has on the world stage and his nation (try to imagine carrying the weight of an entire country on your shoulders during World Cup competition). This documentary is now available.
