The band that stayed for dinner. “The Band’s Visit” swept the Tony Awards this week. Only problem is they are still stuck in Beit Hatikva and the show may be renamed “Groundhog Day: Israel” instead.

Nyuk. Nyuk. Nyuk. John F. Kennedy International Airport debuted its new Emergency Operations Center, which came about after multiple crises occurred during a winter storm. The new directors – Larry, Curly, and Moe – spoke at the press conference and promised that it would never happen again.

Staying with the hotel manager’s family. At the San Francisco Airport Marriot Waterfront, Paul Riegler discovers that the hotel’s GM serves the same hot milk concoction – a mixture of milk, ginger, vanilla, turmeric, clove, and cinnamon called La La Milk – that he gives his kids at home. Yes really. We aren’t even inventing this one.

Robert De Niro. New York City no longer has a “Taxi of Tomorrow.” Instead, it asked Robert De Niro to drive a single Checker cab around the city with Jodie Foster to satisfy the need for yellow cabs, since everyone else is taking Uber or Lyft anyway now. De Niro was heard to remark “F**k Trump” when hailed for a ride.

Rich and thick and chocolaty. In an attempt to compete with the Marriott in San Francisco’s La La Milk, Holiday Inns around the country will serve chocolate milk at happy hours. Only problem is you can’t drink it slow.

Where’s the beef? Jonathan Spira pops into Bobby Van’s Grill at JFK, an offshoot of the famous steakhouse that apparently gets those who couldn’t function at the mother ship. Cold fries, delicious burger, manager tears up check? Seriously?
