|We saw the 50th anniversary restored version of "That Man from Rio," with subtitles.|
|Even the matchbooks are beautiful. We got two at the bar before we left.|
I liked the Film Forum. It has pretty blue plush seats. I liked holding hands in the dark, even after all these years.
They serve popcorn, but no butter or fake butter--just sea salt to shake on. Rather than packaged Twizzlers and Raisinets, they sell from-scratch desserts and I wish I wrote down the baker's name, not one I recognized--I got the half-size brownie with walnuts for $2. Just enough for H. and I to have two bites each...because we didn't go to dinner until after 10, when the movie was over. [Also available: Slices of apple cake, chocolate orange Bundt cake, mango pound cake and more.]
We walked back to our car, parked on West Fourth Street, and looked at some cafes with sidewalk tables.....decided on Sant Ambroeus, which has NY locations there in the West Village, on Madison Avenue, in Soho, in the Regency Hotel--and in Southampton, which I had noticed wistfully on my July day trip there. I've often passed the bustling one on Madison, wishing I had someone to go in with....so glad we went tonight.
I have to go to bed! Boot camp in the morning, and it's almost 1:30 a.m.
But I want to share something. One of the articles I wrote for the Autumn 2014 issue of Aspire is the cover story--about Frank & Eileen, a romantic shirt company--and cult favorite. The owner [who named the company after her Irish grandparents] posted the article on the company website. Here's the link: https://issuu.com/aspirenj/docs/aspire_fall_2014. And check FrankandEileen.com.
Sweet Irish dreams.
