Back in the day, when Madonna would play a series of New York City dates, I’d get tickets to one show and say, “I want to do it again!” as soon as the house lights went up. I finally figured out it was best to always get tickets to two shows, which is why I […]

If you had told 1980s me that, in the distant future, I’d see Duran Duran once and Madonna twice in a single week, I would have been mind-blowingly happy … but not totally surprised.  I always promised myself that when I graduated from high school, I’d move to New York, where I would find like-minded […]

MrB and I went to the Broadway production of hot-hot-hot musical Hamilton tonight. Despite the uniformly rave reviews for Lin-Manuel Miranda’s hip-hop interpretation of Ron Chernow’s 2005 biography of Alexander Hamilton, I was dreading the evening a little. I was originally supposed to see Hamilton on March 26, when it was downtown at the Public […]

With only a few weeks before the start of the fall season, it’s time for me to make sure that all my summer clothes have gotten out and about. I hadn’t worn this Alexander McQueen top yet this year, so it got to go to dinner at the uptown Red Farm. (Good Chinese food; I […]

MrB and I went to a wedding at Saybrook Point Inn and Spa in Connecticut last weekend. The ceremony was outside on the marina.

I spent 10 years in business journalism, and the gyrations of the stock market are more than enough to bring back the memories, thank you very much. I wouldn’t normally seek out a movie related to the post-housing-bubble foreclosure crisis, but I’m glad MrB and I caught a screening of 99 Homes last week. I […]

I’ve got a 1980s Bain de Soleil ad jingle stuck in my head: “Bain de Soleil, for the Saint Tropez tan …” St. Tropez was the third and final stop on our recent trip to Europe. Our friend Scott was having his 50th-birthday party at the beautiful chateau where we’d celebrated his wedding in 2008. […]

We left London for Paris on Monday, August 3. Paris empties out in August because so many Parisians take a nice long holiday. (Several of our Parisian friends were in New York while we were in their city.) I think everyone who was left in the city was sitting along the Seine that night. Whenever […]

I’m in need of a vacation … from the vacation I just took. MrB and I like to spend our off-time in other cities, especially London and Paris. We wind up dashing from dinners with friends to the theater, from the theater to concerts, from concerts to museums. Last year, we got in some relaxation […]
