I for one am damn happy the weekend is here! This has been one busy week!
Last weekend I was one lucky guy to fly off to New York. I went to attend the birthday party of my friend Ronnie Kroell (See Picture Above) at Splash Nightclub. It was such a marvelous time!
Joining me that evening was Advisor Edward, and my ex, Matthew Barrett. I also ran in to Chicago cutie Charlie Gurion who was also celebrating his birthday! While at Splash I ran in to New York DJ’s Scotty Thomson and Escape! Both are two favorites of mine! I was especially glad to catch up with Matthew over the evening.
The next morning (Or should I say a few hours after the party) Advisor Edward, Matthew and I met up with my dear family friends Jon & Mark at the very popular Elmo. Boy do I love this place. Our server, Ian was DAMN FINE! (Dibbs) It was nice to catch up with the boys!
From there it was a day of shopping and fellowship; including high tea at the St. Regis Hotel. What a charming time! Advisor Edward and I enjoyed more fellowship at The Townhouse on 58th Street. Gosh, did I love this piano bar! I even found me a crush in the talented Anthony Fett, who sang a few songs. With Brunch the next morning at famed, Intermezzo I was off to catch a plane back home!
