Ilili was ‘hopping’ on a Tuesday Night. The bar, two large rooms and outside dining was full. Look, NYC – like other places, went through a long haul with COVID-19 numbers – NYC locals are ready to GET OUT. It was a beautiful vibe last night, and the amazing work from the Vaccine developers made it happen. A HUGE ‘Thank You’ to them.
(PS. Yes, the economy of NYC is based on tourism, but selfishly – not running into any tourists is a great treat.)
dievca had dinner at the Zodiac Room in Neiman Marcus Hudson Yards. It was a soft opening and the restaurant was empty. There were unlimited Popovers and dievca’s sparkling rosés were filled to the brim. All in all, a lovely evening.
What dievca wore:
She may not have looked good (she thinks she did), but she felt fabulous!
They had Popovers galore — and dievca knows that popovers are not good on the 2nd day, but she took one home to try again… Hmmm, did they give her the strawberry butter? Hah! They did!
On her way out of the store — dievca loved this sweatshirt (left), but it is handmade and $450…
And the Big Apple Le Creuset is cute (right), but it cannot compete with the one that dievca’s friend gave her for her birthday,,,
She has used it like crazy!
Did dievca tell you about her friend packing the Le Creuset dutch oven in her suitcase, coming from Europe and TSA thinking it was a —- well, something of interest. When dievca opened up her gift it was wrapped heavily in TSA tape.
Where was Master? He had friends in from the West Coast and they needed attention.
Not dievca’s worry, Thank goodness… instead she was heavily into the sparkling rosé.
