Dinner and a Movie

The Headband Game!

My family is a bunch of dorks. And it makes me so proud. A rainy morning at the cabin and Sarah breaks out “Headbands.” You put this on your head. Everyone else knows what you are. You do not. So […]


Supper at the Ranch

The visit from the sister outpost is, sadly, coming to an end. The last hurrah was a delicious supper of grilled chicken and corn at the Ranch. We drank some rose, the girls put on a show for us — […]


Dinner at Adalaya

Right down the stairs from Dear Irving is a little Mediterranean restaurant, where we shared small plates, rose and lots of laughs. Funny sign by the bar: It was a beautiful night, so we took a table on the street: […]

Nasher Sculpture Center, Dallas

A sense of calm fell over me as I descended into the garden at the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas. Sculpture isn’t usually my thing — not sure why, I guess I just haven’t studied it enough to appreciate it. But gardens […]


Brunch at The Cookery

Kelli and her crew were up visiting, and we caught up over a great brunch at The Cookery in Dobbs Ferry. The food there is so god damn good; I just wish I could get there more often. Sam and […]


A Farwell Dinner with the O’D’s

Dinner at 14 and Hudson in Piermont

Piermont just may have become the restaurant capital of Rockland. Adding to the already excellent list of restaurants there — Xaviars, Freelance, o lar, Sidewalk Bistro and Portofino, just to name a few — is the new 14 and Hudson. […]


SCF Paradisio: Grease!

For the evening’s outdoor movie, we tried a musical! Leah, Irene, Kris, Tom, Shannon and Tasha joined us, and we sang along, rather loudly, I must admit. By the time Sarah and Laurie joined us toward the end of the […]


Brunch at The East Pole

The East Pole is a new(ish) restaurant on the Upper East Side from the guys behind The Fat Radish and The LeadBelly. We chose brunch at The East Pole becuase it was only a few blocks from the Whitney, with […]

Rockland Lake Walk

Kelli, her kids and I took a walk around Rockland Lake Sunday. It was finally warm enough, at least for a day or two. So good to get outside! Afterwards, we hug around with Sam in the living room for […]

An adventure in the city, with a walk on the High Line and a pizza lunch at Artichoke Basille, which does New York-style pizza right. Here’s a look at the photos.      Here’s a stop to see “Untitled” by […]
