(November 2008) - Often imitated but never duplicated, father-and-son team, Al Ubell and Larry Ubell have inspired thousands of reluctant do-it-yourselfers to take things into their own hands.

On Wednesday, November 19 at 7pm, attendees will have the opportunity to get their own dose of motivation when WNYC Host Leonard Lopate and the GURUS of HOW-TO do a live presentation of their regular monthly radio segment. The Ubells will answer all home repair questions, from the most basic to the most vexing, and those with seemingly intractable problems are invited to bring photos as well.

This special evening will take place at the brand-new Chelsea location of GRACIOUS HOME, the luxury home goods store, at 766 Sixth Avenue at West 25th Street, which opens just a week before on Wednesday, November 12.
