But that also means planning and work and saving money and doing shit ahead of time, none of which I usually feel like doing. I burn at the beach, I’m too cheap to chip in for a Hamptons house, and no one invited me to anything. And to be honest, all I want to do this...

In the spirit of HowAboutWe.com, I’m going to list some stuff I’ve never done in New York and see if any of my friends want to do said things with me. How about we… Get breakfast at Balthazar? TAKEN Go to the Transit Museum? TAKEN Brown bag it in a park other than McCarren? Attend Shakespeare in the Park? Drink wine on my fire escape? TAKEN Go to one of those midnight...

There was a 25% discount on Coach items (it was held in the Coach store), even though I didn’t take them up on it. I got to catch up with Alex Leo. Lilit…
