LFC in the NYC

Caraghers New York is a bar dedicated to Liverpool’s Jamie Carragher and the UK so of course our guy is going to frequent the pub for any LFC match screening while filming Billions in New York.

Cure EB: The Big Give Christmas Challenge
by Damianista | Fan Fun with Damian Lewis | November 27, 2018
Today is Giving Tuesday! It is a a global day of giving we celebrate on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving and kick off the charitable season! So it’s time to be thankful for all the good stuff in our lives and focus on our holiday giving.
Well, most of you know Damian Lewis is a proud patron of Cure EB.

Sohana Collins is a 15 year old teenager who was born with Recessive Dystropic Epidermolysis Bullosa (RDEB) which means she lacks the protein that holds her skin together. Kids with RDEB have extremely fragile skin that they are sometimes called “butterfly children.” Lots of activities we take for granted as easy routines in our daily lives are a struggle for them. Can you imagine a day where your dressing up takes up to two hours and eating and drinking cause blisters in your mouth and throat? These kids have to deal with this kind of pain every single day. Besides, they are under extra risk to develop skin cancer later in life and their life expectancy is not very long. Sohana’s parents Sharmila and James Collins founded Cure EB to raise awareness as well as funds for research to ultimately have a cure for this terrible skin condition.
Here is what Sohana says about EB.

A Slice of Heaven
by Rich Scinto | Patch, New Haven | November 19, 2018
On Sunday, November 18, Damian dined with his aunt and uncle at Pepe’s Pizzeria in New Haven, Connecticut. According to Patch.com, they enjoyed a margherita pie, quattro formaggi and a sausage and peppers pizza. Frank Pepe Pizzeria Napoletana was founded in 1925 by Frank Pepe who was born in the town of Maiori on the Amalfi coast, southwest of Naples. He and his wife started making a simple and humble product from their homeland, “apizza” — they started off baking two types of pizza, one with tomatoes with grated cheese, garlic, oregano and olive oil and the other with anchovy. The Original Tomato Pie is still offered today.

We fans celebrate Damian everyday, but it’s also special to celebrate one of his most identifiable traits, that flaming red hair, with the rest of the world today! BAFTA LA didn’t miss out on the fun today either, tweeting this to Damian:
And the celebratory tweets didn’t stop there!
As The Independent explains, from fiery copper to strawberry blonde and deep burgundy, whatever your shade, today is a day for redheads to celebrate their tresses. And by red hair, we mean TRUE red hair, right Damian? No fake redheads allowed!
