Be prepared for photo overload... Last week was an action-packed trip to New York. I flew out Monday afternoon to give myself a couple of days of event prep before our big Bugaboo + Andy Warhol launch party at Open House Gallery on Thursday evening. Friday morning we had a blogger brunch at Pastis and by Friday evening I was off to Philly to visit one of my college roommates for the weekend. (Yes, I am now very exhausted!) Below are some photos of the play by play of a jam-packed week in NYC...
The Standard is my new favorite. We use to stay at the Ace Hotel for work, but I prefer all the light in The Standard from the massive windows that give you an incredible skyline view of the Hudson. (Maybe a little scandy that everyone can see in?) but I love how the hotel hangs over the High Line - the perfect spot for morning jogs or evening walks.
I was able to sneak away at night and head to Chelsea Market with two of my east coast city-dwellers, Caitlin and Mary Martha. After a little shopping, walking and plenty of talking we went for dinner at Rosemary's. It was my first time, have you been? I would like to think of myself as a foodie, but as often as I come to NY it's too hard to keep up on the latest and greatest new eateries. Thank goodness for city friends. Mary Martha filled me in on how Rosemary's grows all their own herbs on the roof top. I knew I had to check this place out. I mean - as fresh as it comes! Everything we ordered was top notch, crisp and seasonal. The ambiance was a plus. Really charming and cozy with dim candlelight in the middle of the West Village (my favorite neighborhood). Can't beat a great meal, with even better company.
Caitlin, pushing her baby Penn, around New York City - talk about a chic mama!
The Small Fry girls came to town for the event, really made my week having them there. Wishing they could be with me on every work trip.
This was our 9 year old DJ, Mr. DJ Fulano. And yes, he killed it!

One of the major perks about visiting New York, is of course catching up with my old/new friends - and having them come to my work event was the icing on the cake. What's a business trip without a little pleasure? I must say it was a successful work trip and lovely time in New York. That city is just so special! What is it?! Great energy all around - and especially in the spring when everyone is out and good moods are going around.
