I’m back in LA. Yay!
Coming back is such a bittersweet feeling. I love NY as much as I love LA. I woke up one morning in my friend’s apartment to the sound of a man playing a flute. Looked out the window to see indeed a man playing the flute, cabs driving by, and people living LIFE. My friend asked me what is the one thing I miss most about the city and it’s being around different people who are essentially all the same. I miss feeling more connected.
I also miss my old friends!
Washington Square Park with Quendi.
The heart made me happy.
Long work day for all. I worked a 2 day event with Allie and Monica which was the main purpose of my trip. Ending the night with wine (drank from the bottle), ice cream (eaten from the container), snuggling on the couch, and Star Trek.
I live for brunch.
Spring is here! Central Park with Conway.
Conway: “Do I look ridiculous?” Um, yes. Always wanted to go on the little row boats!
Hudson Clearwater Restaurant in the Village – a very special place! I used to work with the owners at the Thompson Hotel when I first moved to LA. They were bartenders and I hosted at the restaurant along with Quendi (who stole my camera and took most of these pics, btw). I remember when they were talking about opening up their own place and took off to NYC to make it happen from scratch. Amazing to see what has become of their vision. If you are in NY, definitely check it out (if you can get a reservation)! They have been crazy busy since they opened!
Chris. You can find this handsome face behind the bar.
And Mark or his twin brother John (yes, there are two of these gorgeous faces on this planet) are usually at the door.
Chef Wes (far right) made my tummy happy.
Love this girl’s laugh. Always have. Maria was my bestie when I lived in NY and she met me for dinner. Soooo good to see her!
Quendi got some really amazing shots that night!
I’m about to get a bowl of Pho because I have borderline sniffles and I am convinced that Pho cures all. Then it’s back to work! Batmitzvah pics coming up soon.
