New York City Shopping and Fun

Our "Shop 'Til You Drop" day was Monday this year...and we had lots of fun!

We would have slept in, but couldn't as it was a work day..with accompanying noise.

We walked back from Bloomingdale's passing the newly restored and renovated Plaza Hotel.

Beloved Eloise is still there.

Cartier's already was wearing its bow.

The Christmas Tree at Rockefeller was "in process"

but skaters were practicing on the ice rink below...

Details abound in Rockefeller Center.

And then it was off to Les Halles!!!!! Chef Anthony Bourdain (who is one of my inspirations as a cook) wasn't there, but it was okay---it's still so glorious- the PERFECT bistro food made even better by 50% Wine Mondays. There is nothing more fabulous for a Monday than two bottles of wine at lunch.

"Shop 'Til You Drop" Day traditionally ends with the Cinamyn cocktail party, and this year ws no exception....

and then a delicious Greek-inspired dinner at Avra.

Good food, good bargains, good friends. Can't beat that combination.
