So as you may have noticed my posts in March were few and far between...I promise not to make a habit of this but the past months have been a bit intense!!
For starters: I found out I'll be moving to Playboy's original home in Chicago for a little while to lead our design team from there, got a fab. new apartment and went down a jean size.
And last, but certainly not least, I have fallen deeply, madly, hopelessly in love ('Made it through the wilderness...didn't know how lost I was until I found you' styles) with a woman who loves New York, Madonna, time management and romance as much as I do!!
At first I was completely overwhelmed... I had grown very comfortable with my role as the date planner, gift giver, door and bag holder and never realized that BOTH parties in a relationship could successfully fulfill this position. Finding this romantic and exhilarating two-way street may be my greatest recommendation of all...(*Unfortuately I don't have the street address and phone number for this one...check your local listings)
As for the rest...now that I have another ridiculously stealth and generous gal in my life I can offer you kids twice the advice ;)
all my love....FND

An old New York W. Village favourite, Minetta Tavern, re-opened this Tuesday.
They have a great mix of french entrees along with upscale americana: ie their signature "Black Label" burger.
Their status as a former NYC staple is causing unneccesary crowds to flock to their re-opening...making it a better post date (or drunken snack stop) than venue for the main event...adorable either way
113. Macdougal Street (Minetta Lane)
Dinner Menu served til 2am

I'm still not sure how I feel about this one...a friend of mine told me about this website where you can name a star after someone and get the coordinates and the chosen name engraved on a necklace (that looks suspiciously like the sterling silver Return to Tiffany necklace...)
I guess if your lady is an astronomer, or if you happened to meet during a meteor shower this might be cool...
Otherwise: there ain't nothin' like the real thing.
And Tiffany's will custom engrave anything. I had them add WWMD (ie)What Would Madonna Do?) to mine. Now THAT'S a guiding star ;)
star certificate: 54.00
Tiffany & Co.
Return to Tiffany necklace: $300.00
engraving: $30.00 and up
