End of Week Round Up

October 2, 2009

I have a lot of random thoughts so let’s just get to it:

Apparently there is a worldwide wine surplus, which means better prices for consumers. That’s a good thing.

Chili’s, in a desperate move to bring back customers, is going back to its ten year old “I want my baby back” jingle. Not sure if that’s a good thing.

Apparently, the Kanye West/Lady Gaga tour has been cancelled. Don’t mess with Taylor Swift, Kanye!

Speaking of Gaga, I don’t watch Jimmy Fallon’s show regularly — I mean, ever — but this clip of Jude Law reciting Poker Face is pretty funny. Click here to watch it.

Single of the Week

Let’s not forget Ken and this week’s single:

Two pens and a desk. Mr. Internet, you continue to dazzle and amaze.

On a Sad Note

One of Ken and my favorite restaurants in NYC has closed: Chanterelle. We spent several special occasions there over the years, and not only was the food always delicious, but Karen Waltuck, the maitre’d and one of the owners, was always so warm and gracious and intent on making the evening special. This was their goodbye note:

After thirty years of successful business we are sad to share the news that despite all our efforts the plans to renovate and re-open Chanterelle will not come to pass.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to the many people who have become dear friends and supporters through the years, to our loyal and loving staff and to our endlessly encouraging family.

Through good and bad times it is a thrilling, passionate and rewarding journey. We are proud to be a part of this creative industry in this unparalled city of ours and look forward to what we will bring to you in the future…

Etc.

I am freezing, people!! The temperature dipped and the heat forgot to come on. It’s really cold!

The weekend is almost here!! I’m headed to Philadelphia. Hope you’re all good!
