AVN Gone Wrong

Look at me all posting this a day in advance! And freshly back from Vegas and ready for the first Cocktail Confidentail Happy Hour of the year!!

Ok, maybe recently returned from Vegas would be a better way to put that.

Vegas was, as always a bit to full of Happy Hours, Rough Mornings and Walking. Both shows (AVN and CES) where great, although I would have to agree with the Crazy Cabbie (yes, of course we nearly died in a cab in Vegas. Isn’t that a required part of the stay??) that maybe having AVN and CES at the same time might be a bit too much. Or maybe I’m getting old.

Scott made some great business contacts. I was molested by both the gay boys of (I think they really may be straight) and Ron Jeremy. We both discovered that you CAN have three dinners in one night and not die. Just wish you could. I think the hot new bar in Vegas would have to be Tryst in the Wynn – complete with water fall in the center of it, and the hot new restaurant would DEFINITELY have to be Daniel Boulud also at the Wynn complete with a Truffled Foie Gras Kobe Short Rib Burger. Oh and a VERY hot pastry chef. OK, I love the Wynn, but Wynn aside, those two places rock!

This week, in much need of a rest, I have found a promising looking wine bar near Union Square. Reviews say there are lots of nocks and crannies to relax in, lots of over stuffed comfy chairs, a huge wine menu and several interesting meat and cheese plates to enjoy. What’s not to love? I guess we will find out. Come to happy hour this week and you can hear some more stories about CES and AVN.

I will be there at 6:30 this Friday the 13th. Please let me know if you will make it so we can save you a place.
