New York City…all play, no work!

Me, Britt, Kev and Ryan

Me, Britt, Kev and Ryan

Because I am a complete slacker.  And because when I am actually in NYC the last thing I am doing is sitting down at the computer – I am usually out cocktailing, shopping, and overall just misbehaving.   So a day-to-day journal of what went on, is never going to happen! 

For those of you who are interested, I will summarize my latest trip by telling you about my favorite things that we did (this is in no particular order):

1.  Attending Kevin Krier’s Birthday party…best party EVER!
2.  Getting make-up done by Joey on the set of Rachel Ray’s Morning Show and then running into Eric McCormick in the hallway
3.  Lunch at the Spotted Pig (Soft-boiled Duck Eggs with Pancetta and Endive) and a typical Nat, Britt and Kev 2 bottle lunch
4.  Purchasing my first pair of Sex and the City shoes…Manolo Blahnik bitches!
5.  The EXTRA spicy guacamole and Tequila shots at Dos Caminos
6.  Getting lost on the subway and feeling like a complete CA “loser” that can’t understand and underground public transportation system
7.  Stalking Tom Colichio by having cocktails at Craftsteak in Chelsea
8.  Gay Cabaret…need I say more!
9.  Seeing Mary Kate Olsen at Indochine
10.  Taking the “Fashion in Art” tour at the Metropolitan Museum of Art

promisQous behavior in the Big Apple

September 8, 2008 at 5:59 pm (Travel) (, )

Lucky for me one of the wine brands in our portfolio is named promisQous.

Lucky for me my friend K-Dog thought it would be the perfect wine to pour at the Yummie Tummie product launch.

Lucky for me this event took place in New York City…and I got to attend.

I had sooooo much fun, almost too much fun because at this point I am exhausted.  There was shopping at H&M, a walk down 5th Avenue to Central Park, pastrami sandwich at the famed Carnegie Deli, and of course many lovely dinners and glasses of bubbly with my brother Ryan, K-Dog, and his fashionista crew!

The trip was successful for two reasons…

1.  promisQous was a huge success at the event and all but one case of red was consumed. 
2.  Ryan and I got to attend our first runway fashion show sitting front row at Cushnie et Ochs.  The show was for two new designers that just graduated from Parsons Design School and K-Dog is predicting they are the “future” of the fashion world.  Beyond exciting….the theme was American Psycho and the models walked out onto the runway from behind a revolving blade.

I’m finally now unpacked.  I’m finally through all the laundry.  But, there are no complaints.  A trip to the NYC is always welcome.

The Yale Club

April 10, 2008 at 3:53 am (Travel) ()

So Mav and I are staying at the Yale Club in NYC.  Business attire required – to walk in, to have a cocktail, to probably just sneeze.  Really, I’ve been traveling for 2 plus weeks, business attire is not in my program.  Slothy is more my speed at this point.  Today I totally had a Mary Kate Olsen outfit on – 5 colors no harmony! 

Had a Prohibition Punch drink tonight and some SB for dinner.  At the hotel…

So I went to the bar to get a glass of SB and lo and behold, at the Yale Clube they have a pictue of G. W. Bush over the fireplace.  Really!  A portrait like he is some military commader from the Napoleonic wars…got my wine and went back to the room.  The portrait completely freaked me out!
