How Kate Rosante of Boss Molly Bourbon Spends Her Sundays – The New York Times

Kate Rosante’s passion for cocktails is thanks to her father, who built a bar in the living room of her childhood home. “I loved gathering around the guests and fetching drinks,” said Ms. Rosante, 43, a co-founder of the bourbon brand Boss Molly (slang for a stubborn female mule). “As a kid growing up in the suburbs in Long Island, that felt special.”
Ms. Rosante, who is also a vice president of marketing production operations at the cable network A&E, said the idea for Boss Molly was born during a poker game in 2017 with her friends and co-founders Brandi Bowles and Victoria Horn. “The bourbon world is hypermasculine and very niche,” she said. “We have respect for the tradition, but we didn’t feel it spoke to us. We wanted to open it up to more people.”
Ms. Rosante lives in a one-bedroom apartment at 92nd Street and Lexington Avenue with her husband, Adam Rosante, 43, a fitness trainer and influencer who created Good Eats, a nonprofit that gives schoolchildren food on weekends. For the past seven years they have spent their summers in Amagansett, where they own a two-bedroom 1940s cottage.
MORNING MEDITATION I’m up at 7:30 or 8 a.m. Adam gets up before me and meditates in the other room. I do 10 minutes of meditation breath work in bed. It sets my day with an intention. I feed our two rescue cats, Sabrina and BB, then get the cold brew coffee I made the night before. We buy beans from Cashin Coffee Roasters, a local coffee roaster in Montauk. I add half-and-half. I grew up with full fat — it’s my Irish roots.
KITCHEN BALLET While Adam is at the kitchen table planning his workweek, I’ll check the marine report, then get some physical activity by doing 60 to 90 minutes of ballet in the kitchen. The counter acts as the barre because I need to hold onto something that’s above hip level. I have a portable rubberized floor so I’m not slipping around. Then I make a kale, peanut butter, whey protein and apple smoothie.
FRUIT FIRST If the weather is good, we drive our ’66 Mustang convertible, which Adam bought off the side of the road over a Fourth of July weekend, and get berries at Amber Waves Farm. You can pick the raspberries off the bushes if they’re ripe. If not, then it’s already-picked blueberries, strawberry and rhubarb, which I’ll use to bake a fruit crisp.
OUT ON THE WATER We pick up our boat, a 20-foot Grady-White bowrider, at Uihlein’s Marina around 1 p.m. We bought it from them during Covid. We wanted something to do when we couldn’t be around people. The boat is called “Seabird.” Spending time out here made me appreciate birds. I became fascinated by the different gulls. Being on the water and exploring different areas — and saving hours normally spent in car traffic by getting somewhere by boat — became our go-to. It also connects us with the culture of Montauk, which is all fishing and boating.
FISH OF THE DAY We tool around and circle Lake Montauk, then we go through the inlet, drive into the bay and dock at Duryea’s Montauk, which was an old lobster place, for lunch. It’s since been bought and renovated, but they kept the spirit of the place. You get a paper menu, mark off what you want, bring it to a window and they bring the food to you. We usually order half a dozen littleneck clams and the grilled fish of the day. Their shoestring French fries are key. We eat that on the bay so you’re looking out at the water.
JUMPING IN We usually shoot over to the Navy Beach pier, which is a dock jutting out into the water. We tie up the boat and then jump off the dock. It’s a little scary, but it’s so much fun. The water feels really good in the summer. If it’s too windy for the boat, we drive to the White Sands beach in Amagansett. Most of the beaches don’t have official names; they’re usually named after visual markers or descriptors. This one is near the White Sands Hotel. Adam goes surfing in the ocean and I sit on the beach and read. I’m halfway through “Fairy Tale,” by Stephen King. I’m also reading “Sag Harbor,” by Colson Whitehead. It takes place in the summer on the east end of Long Island in the mid- to late ’80s.
DOWNTIME We go back home and I’ll nap or read in the hammock. I hang out until I feel I need to do an outdoor shower, which happens around 5 or 5:30.
BEACH DINNER We might pick up food at Dive Bar Pizza in Napeague, which is between Montauk and Amagansett. We have a portable grill, so if we don’t do pizza, we get steak at Tony’s Meat Market or Gosman’s Market. We go to the beach and make a bonfire. Adam does the grilling, and we have dinner with friends we’ve made out here. Then we watch the sunset, which is magical. I don’t really see sunsets in the city, and each one out here is different. It’s a time to be together and appreciate the beauty of the place we’re in. We normally don’t talk through it.
COCKTAILS AND A FLICK We head home by 8:30 and watch TV. We finished “Succession” and “Jury Duty,” which was very funny. Now we’re on to movies. There’s a roster of ones we’ve already seen, like “Jaws,” “Point Break” and “Stepford Wives” (the original, not the Nicole Kidman), that are tied to the season we’re in. I make my own syrups and bitters, and theme cocktails to the movies. For “Jaws” I make a New York whiskey sour with red wine. In “Stepford Wives,” the women drink a lot of Scotch. I make a riff on a dry Manhattan and steep whisky in chamomile tea, then I add dry vermouth. I’ll make these as Adam tees up the movie.
BEDTIME Adam and I get in bed; the cats follow. Neither one of us can sleep with the light on, so we both end up going to sleep at the same time.

'Madame Web' Release Date Moves to Valentine's Day – Collider

The move comes amongst a host of other delays from Sony.
Madame Web, the upcoming film set in the Sony’s Spider-Man Universe has moved up its release date by two days, and it will now release on February 14, 2024, instead of the previously scheduled February 16. Dakota Johnson stars as the titular character, who has psychic abilities that allow her to see events happening around the “Spider-World”, in an origin story that will establish how the mysterious woman relates to the rest of the unconventional heroes established within the franchise. The new release date comes in the middle of a major slate shuffle from Sony Pictures due to the ongoing dual strike.
The Writers Guild of America and SAG-AFTRA are currently busy fighting for their rights, as their members weren’t paid a fair wage for the hard work they put into the movies and television series that entertain the world. The strike has already delayed multiple productions, and it will continue to do so until studios decide to approach their workers with a fair deal.
The Presidents’ Day weekend has done wonders for the Marvel brand in the past, with titles such as Deadpool and Black Panther finding a great amount of success at the box office. The mark in the calendar could turn out to be extremely beneficial for Madame Web, as the character will be portrayed in a live-action movie for the first time.
Other titles related to Spider-Man have changed their release dates due to the ongoing strike, including Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse and Kraven the Hunter. While audiences might have to wait a little bit longer to enjoy the stories making their way to the big screen, it’s important to remember that without the hard work of actors and writers the projects wouldn’t exist in the first place. Sony’s Spider-Man Universe, as well as the rest of the industry, will get back on track as soon as the studios agree to pay their workers a fair wage, reaching a deal that will be beneficial for the entire industry going forward.
Diego Peralta is a Senior News Writer and a Features Writer for Collider. He has also written for several other outlets, including BuzzFeed News. When he’s not watching ‘The Last Jedi’ again, he’s looking for the best burger in town and the next movie that will become a fixation for him.

After years of suffering through workout routines that left her feeling prone to injury, Rachel Katzman, founder and CEO of the functional fitness program Pvolve, knew there had to be a way to see results without seeing the inside of a doctor’s office. When she came upon functional fitness, Katzman was inspired to create the Pvolve method and its proprietary equipment, which you can try at studio classes in New York City and L.A., as well as via streaming service. The workout is a favorite of celebrities and influencers alike, including Jennifer Aniston, who recently joined the Pvolve team. Of Aniston’s involvement, Katzman says, “[Jennifer] found Pvolve through a friend and she saw all the amazing benefits early on, like more energy, being able to work out with some sensitivities in her body and still feel strong and sculpted throughout the process.” Below, Katzman shares three moves from Jen’s favorite Pvolve workouts.
Rachel Katzman is the co-founder and CEO of Pvolve, a functional fitness workout with studios in NYC, LA and online. In 2017, Katzman felt broken from high-intensity workouts mingled with scoliosis pain and knew there had to be a better way to get results. Then she found functional fitness and developed a low-impact, big results fitness method with a Clinical Advisory Board, expert trainers and unique equipment.
“Your workout should be moving your body the way that you live your life,” says Katzman. Defined as exercises that train your muscles to work together and prepare them for daily tasks by simulating common movements you might do at home, at work or in sports, functional fitness aims to be just that: functional. The multi-joint, multi-muscle movements are designed to reduce risk of injury and improve quality of life.
“You would always hear two things when it came to fitness,” Katzman continues. “I stopped going there because I stopped seeing results, or I stopped because I got injured. I felt like it was time for the women’s fitness industry to evolve, and the combination of functional fitness and resistance equipment is how Pvolve was born.” Without further ado, three celeb-approved moves you can try for yourself. (These moves incorporate Pvolve equipment, but can also be done with your own body weight.)
Standing Ab Exercises Are Trending on TikTok: Here Are 15 Moves to Add to Your Next Workout
With the P.ball at your ankles and the Pvolve logo facing outward, put one foot through the loop and hook the strap around your other ankle. Stand with your feet hip-width apart and make sure the P.ball is centered between your ankles and pull up through the legs.
In a shortened lunge position, tap one foot behind you in full lunge, moving back to your original stance and moving your arms in opposition to your lunging leg. Keep the squat position throughout, with knees over toes and weight in heels. Repeat on each side.
Using the P.Band, look for the L and R printed on the inside of the gloves, indicating Left and Right. With the letter of your corresponding hand facing the inside of your palm, imagine you’re high-fiving your glove, then slip your fingers into the finger loops. Wrap the strap around your wrists to secure.
With both arms extended above your head at a 45 degree angle, pull hands and the band apart until it is taught, enabling resistance. Pull one arm holding the band downward, bending at the elbow and keeping your hand close to your waist. Repeat on each side.
This workout uses the Pvolve precision mat to inspire accurate footwork, and a pair of light hand weights (two to three pounds).
In a squat position, cross arms parallel in front of you, weights in hand, with your palms facing you. From the squat, extend one leg back into a lunge position, and opening the arms wide with chest standing tall. Return back leg back into the squat position, with arms crossed over one another as you began. Repeat on each side.
