12th Night

Have you seen Twelfth Night in Central Park? It's a little late if you haven't, but the production of The Bacchae is set to start on August 11th. My advice on waiting 7 hours on line is...bring a dog. Natasha was a like a magnet for all good things...including Mimosas from my neighborly friends Sarah & Carrie.

And please...give the guy with the flute a little change. He will mumble little angry words if you don't. I think he's a nice guy.

Breakfast with the Mayor

Yes, I know what you're thinking. A carboard cutout of the Mayor. But, there I am with Mayor Mike Bloomberg at Gracie Mansion back in June. I was invited along with 20 other small business owners from Chelsea and Hell's Kitchen to share breakfast in the early morning hours. It was a surreal event. Pancakes and fruit salad. A little bacon on the side (none for me, thanks). As interesting a personality as he is, the real meet was with Amy Scherber from Amy's Bread. It was perfect timing, as I was just preparing to do my research on opening KOFFIE (more details soon).
