"Breakfast at Tiffany's," the beloved novella by Truman Capote, has hit Broadway with a rising star in the role of Holly Golightly -- HBO's "Game of Thrones" actress Emilia Carke. The new stage version, by playwright Richard Greenberg, opened this week at the Cort Theatre in New York. Directed by Sean Mathias, the play is the first attempt to adapt the novella for Broadway since the disastrous musical version that closed before it officially opened in 1966. Clarke is making her Broadway debut as the high-society party girl whom Capote described as an "American geisha.

In an earlier era, Dr. Benjamin Carson's speech before the National Prayer Breakfast last week would have been a really big deal rather than mere fodder for a brief squall on Twitter and cable news. Born in crushing poverty to an illiterate single mother dedicated to seeing her children succeed, Carson became the head of the department of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins medical institutions when he was 33. He's been a black celebrity role model ever since. Even if you didn't like the substance of what Carson had to say at the breakfast, his speech makes for great political theater.

We are repeatedly told that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Sure a yogurt or apple on the go works when you're in a pinch, but there's nothing like sitting down to a proper breakfast with the paper and time to spare. During Monday morning's #Weekendeats chat on Twitter, participants shared what they made and ate for breakfast over the weekend. Here are the highlights: For the pancake and waffle lovers, Carrie Fehr from the blog Kitchen Garden shared her banana pancakes with maple caramel sauce , Patricia Conte from the blog AZGrabaPlate.com shared her lemon ricotta pancakes with pomegranate syrup, Angela Matta made a German pancake with syrup and powdered sugar and Brooks Walker from the blog CakeWalkr.com made wholegrain waffles with spiced apple butter folded right in. Lindsay William-Ross visited the Donut Man for the first time and shared this picture of the doughnut case, full of the day's offerings, while Julie Lee shared a photo of her kabocha baked doughnuts.

Seattle is a beacon for travelers who dream of the Space Needle or a trip to Safeco Field or Pike Place Market, a gathering spot for coffee drinkers and cyclists and tree-huggers. It is not, however, a city that coasts on its reputation for superb lodging. Yes, you'll find a Four Seasons and a W and the high-tech Hotel 1000 , but what about rooms for the merely mortal? My husband, Steve, and I flew to Seattle at the end of November to begin a short trip through the Pacific Northwest.

I'm always receiving emails or texts from friends needing to know (right away!) where to go for breakfast in this or that neighborhood. The first meal of the day is ideal for catching up with friends or meeting up with a colleague or out-of-town visitor. The hours are elastic. Breakfast can sometimes stretch to afternoon. Many places have outdoor seating, the better to show off our glorious weather to East Coasters. And you can eat very well for a fraction of what it would cost for dinner - and without feeling as if someone is breathing down your neck for your table.

Don't be surprised if you soon hear a server at Denny's newest restaurant in Las Vegas ask, "Would you like a side of hash browns with your wedding cake?" The diner, along the Fremont Street Experience , opened Nov. 29 in downtown Las Vegas, but it's more than just a place to get a Grand Slam breakfast. Besides the usual 24/7 dining, guests can belly up to the bar for a cocktail. And if a marriage proposal follows some hotcakes and hooch, this Denny's will soon open its own wedding chapel.
