Houston-born singer/songwriter Steve Tyrell may not be as well known as he deserves. Mostly hiding behind the music of Burt Bacharach, Tyrell wrote a significant portion of Bacharach's music, as well as Hal David's pieces. After working with these artists, Tyrell has managed to make a name for himself in the casino circuit, performing his (and Bacharach's) music at various casino's around the country.
Held inside Grand Central Station's Vanderbilt Hall, the annual Grand Central Holiday Fair is the only indoors fair of its kind. The fair attracts thousands of shoppers from within the city and beyond during each day of its duration during peak shopping season, from just before Thanksgiving until Christmas Eve. With 76 vendors hawking gifts to suit every personality, this is a can't-miss shopping extravaganza. Note that the fair is closed on Thanksgiving Day.
