For great seafood dishes in the Midtown area, get lured into Lure! As part of the Fifth Group chain of restaurants, Lure understands that good seafood dishes have to be fresh. That’s why only the freshest seafood is delivered to Lure every day.

Relax in the dining room, with dark woods surrounding comfortable tables. Because only fresh fish is used, the menu changes all the time. But you’re always going to find tasty soups and entrees, created using fresh fish and other expertly-sourced ingredients. A long wine list includes quite a few apt pairings, and you're welcome to ask the wait staff to help you find a wine you'll enjoy.

Lure is open Sunday through Thursday from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m., Friday and Saturday until 11 p.m. and Sunday at 11 a.m. for Brunch.

Easy DIY Sewing Projects for Beginners

October 16, 2014 1:04 pm

You just got a brand new sewing machine (or finally pulled that abandoned one out of the closet), and you’re ready to tackle some simple sewing projects. If you’re a novice sewer who wants to learn the ropes—or, better yet, the threads—these three DIY projects will help you to get started.

Simply Envelope Pillow [momtastic.com]
Pillows are some of the simplest things that you can make with a sewing machine because of their straightforward shapes and minimal measuring. This envelope-style pillow DIY uses any type of fabric that you want, and its size can be easily adjusted if you want to switch pillows in the future.

Cute Makeup Bags [diyready.com]
This easy sewing tutorial shows you how to make stylish makeup bags that look just like the ones that you would purchase at your favorite trendy shop. It takes a bit of measuring to attach the zipper, so this may be best as a second or third project for beginning sewers.

Fabric Baskets [imstudiolou.wordpress.com]
This is an especially easy sewing project that can even be used to store all of your sewing supplies. Choose a pretty pattern that matches the decor in your room, or even make multiple baskets to use together.
