We bid adieu to wonderful New York until the next time…
We had such a great stay, as always. Mr. Chow’s was the choice for our last meal (one of my husband’s favourite restaurants) It was predictably delicious and as busy as I have ever seen it in all the years I’ve been going there. Good for you Michael Chow! I did check out The Carlyle’s Bemelman’s bar and it was indeed as charming as everyone said. AND, as luck would have it and at the risk of sounding like The NY Post, we also caught Elaine Strich in the hotel hallway as we were coming out of our room! In her robe, giving a staff member a hard time about her carpet not being clean enough. I swear! She must live in the building. A classic NY moment. We could still hear her as the elevator doors closed and we descended a couple of floors- the woman can PROJECT.
Back to Santa Barbara tomorrow, just in time for more rain. But I don’t mind really, I just need to get someplace where there isn’t a restaurant within 20 ft. of me for a few days. I’m excited to see my willow trees popping their little green shoots.
Lastly, if my pilates trainer (Pilatesanytime.com) Kristi is reading this… yes, the gym here in the Carlyle is really great. It is…um, blue-ish…and it has lots of silver and uh…grey equipment stuff. Many…things…and towels and a TV. Just wonderful. It’s on the 8th, 11th, well actually I can’t remember the exact floor because I always took the stairs. Super place.
Happy Weekend Everyone!!
