How about we… head to The Ides at Wythe Hotel for the monthly installment of Santé Motherf*ckers - a DJ party with magnums of natural wine going around.
How about we… check out Tørst in Greenpoint when it opens later this week, and dig on the Scandinavian design & beers.
How about we… go check out the "We Buy White Albums: Rutherford Chang" exhibition at Recess, and grab a drink in the hood afterwards.
An awesome place I've visited
Private backstage tour of the Metropolitan Opera during intermission at Otello. Dinner at Blanca. Appenzeller cheesemaker in the Swiss Alps.

The movie I've watched the most times
