Monday, March 1, 2010

One of my best friends from college is in town to visit me.  I do not work Mondays because I work long hours at the hospital Tuesday – Friday.  We will go to the MET, the Guggenheim, maybe catch the Hayden Planetarium show at the Natural Museum of History, and I have one event planned for that day:

1) Craft Night at the Etsy Labs: Hat Making with Desira Pesta 4:00 pm-8:00pm

Tuesday, March 2, 2010

After work I try to make Tuesday Night Dinner with my friends.  A different restaurant every Tuesday is picked and we dine!  It is usually about 20 or so people and we all kick back after work and enjoy a beer together.  Lately, I have been held up in clinic and have been going to a LOST Viewing Meet UP (membership required) ! It starts a bit later at 9:00 and about 80 members watch LOST together at an IRISH PUB while eating dinner.  There is even a program and after the show 3 prizes are drawn in a raffle.  The prizes include LOST merchandise, LOST video games, LOST magazines, signed LOST memorabilia, LOST Bobble Head Dolls…etc..

So every second week of the month, a club I joined called Wired New York meets up around New York and goes to gallery openings. We go to about 8 a night popping in to take pics and discover the new artists. There is free wine/beer/cheese trays etc at these events as well. I have to say it was one of my favorite things I have done yet in the city and I cant wait for the next meet up!

*Oct 31 - 00:05* Why did it rain on my parade?!

We got there late because we went to an A&M and Texas Longhorn Alumni Happy hour, so we missed a lot of the free give-a-ways and some of the shops ran out of alcohol.
But basically all the high end brands had a party going on with free gift bags, free Champagne or cocktails, live bands/DJs, and photo shoots. Justin Timberlake was at Saks Fifth Avenue sporting his new line and Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen were bar-tending at Bergdorf Goodman!!! Rihanna and Katy Pery attended the World of Giuseppe Zanotti.
Posing in the window of Coach. The girl in the middle is my new friend Kim who I met through another Aggie that is a mutual friend and the girl in the white is my best friend Crista. We have known each other since she was 14!! She has lived here for the past 2 years and is one reason why I moved here!
I got a free parafin wax hand massage and gifts at Anne Fontaine.
