omg guess who i met! Garance Doré! **squeeeeee**
AND i met Scott Schuman too! **squeeeeeeee** again. (they are so cute it’s ridiculous.)
it was raining so i wore the karma galoshes, maybe they even bring good luck!
dinner at Nuela afterward, since it’s so close by. a lot of the really good stuff— like the foie gras balls that Sam Sifton is too stupid to eat in one bite even though they were like the size of fucking M&M’s, the bacalau fritters, and the sea urchin ceviche— is gone. this is what happens when you don’t play food politics and haven’t spent enough time kissing the retarded food press‘s ass. you can no longer afford to keep the best stuff (and staff) in house, because there’s not enough demand for it. muther fukkers.

yea this is my irritated wtf-yesterday-was-74-degrees-and-today-it’s-41-fucking-degrees look. i stole this jacket from sweetie, but it’s okay because i still let him wear it every once in awhile. the parka and blazer are actually attached as one piece. it’s even reversible– if you turn it inside out, instead of an orange parka under a black blazer, it looks like a black blazer under a green parka. it’s pretty funky.

the forecast said 71˚ today but it actually hit 74˚! yay, you know what that means— Aperol Spritzers at my faaavorite outdoor cafe in all of NYC, Gusto Ristorante e Bar Americano on Greenwich Ave.
it’s so hot i’m actually sweating a bit in this little bath mat i’m wearing.

day two: after dinner at Benu in San Francisco we drove straight to Napa Valley, we stayed at a friend’s friend’s great little cottage located on the Del Dotto vineyard. breakfast from the nearby Dean & Deluca. wine tasting at Duckhorn Vineyards. lunch at Bottega. wine tasting at Del Dotto. dinner by the fire in the backyard of such an enormous supply of smoked meats, cheeses, vegetables, nibbles, and shrimp grilled on the patio (shipped in from Whole Foods) that you can’t even imagine.
packing for three cities (at varying temperatures) when you hate to check in luggage is kinda a pain in the ass, every single piece has to be maximized efficiently for potential usability in every situation. so of course i ended up a couple things short, i had to borrow this gray sweater from my pal to pile on top of two other layers so i was warm enough for my tour of Napa Valley without being too uncomfortably overheated by trying to wear the coats i’d had to cram into my tiny TSA-approved carry-on suitcase for our upcoming stay in Lake Tahoe.
