time flies when you're soaking in gin.

{funny how time flies
when you're having fun.}

i went to see my beloved dentist, and we were together for about 3 hours. the last of my replacement fillings, thank zeus.

later there were drinks and shimmying at kush, followed by more drinks and way more shimmying at 6s & 8s.

2 am

when my dentist rolled in at about 1am i was thrilled.


the afterparty at workhorse's house was all rooftop love and chilling. freaky yoga provided by poogene.



we got a late late start but had margaritas at benny's in the west village, followed by 2 for 1 cocktails at the urge and karaoke at second on second. lots of duets, some gospel, some britney. later there was dinner at funky broome - shiny!

started out at vento in the meat packing district, where we had a lindsay lohan sighting. i didn't grab my camera til the last minute and she's barely in the shot, but maybe you can recognize the side of her face?

later we spent some time in alexander mcqueen, he has the most gorgeous clothes. wish i had $2000 to drop on a silver pleated skirt, or leopard print belted coat, cuz i would.

later we scooted over to the howl festival in tompkins square park, hopping over to porch on ave C for a drink before coming back for wigstock. i loves me some flotilla de barge.

dinner was at leon, with the hot hot hot christophe from geneva serving us and making us swoon. i said something in french that prompted him to give us a glass of wine on the house.

after dinner we walked down to congee village, which is too well lit but has the cheapest freaking drinks in the LES. sapphire & tonic = $4.50. the decor is psychotic and out of control - part castle, part tiki hut, part enchanted forest slash pirate ship. 80s neon bar stools and petrified wood stump chairs, fish pond, brass pony... so awesome. we also had delicious dumplings, pork fried rice, and a light and non-greasy scallion pancake. our bartender LJ didn't look a day over 19 and was very sweet to us.

after four rounds of drinks we were back at kush for some dancing and hookah and one last round. then some of us needed dessert, so we headed to a 24 hour diner and had cake, shakes, ice cream sundaes and such. the cab driver had a horse on his dashboard.

was a day of recovery and work - had to watch the MTV VMAs and get started on a fashion story that needs to be turned around ASAP...

that's all for now, more soon.
