NEW YORK MINUTE

20 February 2012



I went to NYC two weekends ago to celebrate my buddy's dirtiest birthday. The last time I was there was in 2008 so this trip was long, long overdue. Lots of yummy food were digested which I'll post all about it later this week. And I spotted Scott Schuman, the super talented photographer behind The Sartorialist! He was resting against his bike with a cup of coffee, most likely taking a fashion pause before the shows. I was so starstruck I bolted into Starbucks like a teenage girl. Actually, a teenage girl would've ran up to the guy and asked for a photo. So, no, I was just a shy sheep. Baaah! Oh well. I had a fantastic time in New York. All we did was eat and pranced around the streets in the frigid weather, which was a refreshing change. The waffles picture is from Beauty & Essex. Pretty interiors, has a speakeasy vibe. Really dim. Food was nice but I wasn't drooling over it. The brussel sprouts were delicious though. I'd go again for drinks. For dinner we went to The Mermaid Inn. I had the blackened catfish and it was just divine. Anyway, I have more photos coming. It's gonna be a New York week! :)

  9. Oh man. If only I was there. You would have gotten a photo with him... after I embarrassed you because I thought a Sartorialist had something to do with Satan.

  11. Oh Scott... how I've dreamt of meeting you! (No, really... I had a dream once that I ran into him on the streets of New York. I couldn't remember if he photographed me or not. That kind of stressed me out in the morning. Crazy girl!)

  21. ELISE — So jealous. How long you there for? And can I come, too? Ha. I miss it. I've been thinking of moving there for a year or two. I'm getting bored out of my wits over here at work so I wanna change it up.

    Guggenheim's always a fun spot. Check out Alec Soth's new show at Sean Kelly Gallery. Beautiful photographs. Stroll along the Highline. Then grab a bite at Chelsea Market. And maybe lunch at Momofuku Ssam bar if you love duck just like me?! That's about it. Have fun getting lost in the city. I don't ever plan much when I go because there's always something happening every corner.

    Have heaps of fun and we can't wait to hear all about it!
