The William, Shakespeare & Peacock

Shakepeare

Tuesday night we went to the newly opened and renovated William Hotel on 39th between 5th and 6th which, used to be the Williams Club of Williams College that opened in 1924. It’s a hotel with a great old school English vibe in the restaurant and pub, and super modern extended stay residences and hotel rooms. The Shakespeare pub downstairs and The Peacock restaurant upstairs are packed with a good looking crowd, serving a similar menu of fantastic food by English-born chef Robert Aikens, including a pate that I had to have a bite of. It was worth it. For dinner I had an order of the deviled eggs and the Cheddar Caesar salad with white anchovies. Insanely good. Continue reading

Coachella 2014

Every year I put up a list of my favorite Coachella must haves but really how hard is it to remember to bring a hat, good sunscreen, comfortable shoes (boots! they keep the dust out), sunglasses, a scarf and light sweater for the chilly desert nights, and a bag to put it all in. Yeah, it’s not hard. Though I will add something to this year’s beauty routine that I am fixated on: Dr. Perricone’s Photo Plasma anti-aging moisturizer with SPF 30. It is magical, I promise, and with everything you are putting your skin through in the desert this one hits the mark in every way. Anyway, this year I thought I would do a list of all the bands I want to see but won’t because I will be in NYC. Yes, for the first time in six years I will not be getting dusty and dirty with the rest of you but I will send love and hydrated thoughts your way. Don’t drink too much but have one for me… Continue reading

Mistaken For Strangers

The National

The best documentaries are the ones that veer fearlessly into an unknown direction, where the viewer uncovers layers both painful and painfully funny, that the director himself may not even realize until the editing room. That is the brilliant film Tom Berninger made while attempting to make a “doc rock” on his older brother (by nine years) Matt Berninger’s band, The National. Shot in 2010 during the band’s tour for their “High Violet” album, Mistaken for Strangers is a beautiful first film about music, life, love, loss, family, and the complicated nature of being brothers. Kind of by Continue reading

Jasmin Shokrian, Fall 2014

photo-54

LA-based designer Jasmin Shokrian was in NYC last week with her gorgeous new collection. Fall 2014 is a tightly edited, well-shaped reflection of what Jasmin does so well: thoughtful clothes with her distinct voice, which are sublimely wearable. I fell in love with everything especially the coats. Continue reading
