even though the sky was bright and sunny, the weather forecast said 80% chance of rain by sunset. so everything i wore this day was 100% waterproof, it all looks sorta leathery but really it’s all rubber. and wouldn’t you know it didn’t rain a drop the entire day or night.
brunch at my second faaavorite restaurant in all of NYC, Centro Vinoteca.

late lunch / early drinks at my faaavorite restaurant in all of NYC, Gusto Ristorante e Bar Americano on Greenwich Ave.
i was on teevee again, yay! it was kinda a last minute thing, so ha ahaa i wore pretty much the exact same outfit (minus the on-air sweater) since i didn’t have time to think.

i love Miami. true, i grew to hate it when i lived here in the winter of 1992, but what can i say. it’s a great place to visit…
although currently my new favorite hotels are The W and The Setai, they were both entirely booked up due to the big annual boat show. so back to The Raleigh it was— ah, the memories. the poor Raleigh isn’t quite the same now as back in the golden olden Andre Balazs days, but it’s still a special little gem.
late breakfast by the pool; met friends for dinner at Prime 112 (even though i kinda can’t stand that place).
