This is my book: Pretty Monsters by Kelly Link
This is my breakfast: baguette tartine and coffee from Eric Kayser
Come join me at the table:
It took a couple weeks after the devastating election, but I’m back to posting here. Although things quite haven’t returned to a baseline of normal (I doubt they will any time soon), I went to see Manon Lescaut at the Met. Anna Netrebko was singing the title role, and I had been looking forward to the performance for months. I had never heard her live before, and it was worth every single penny. She is extraordinary in every sense in this role. On Wednesday, I had breakfast with a friend visiting from out of town. This week also included a couple business lunches, and plenty of work to keep me busy.
Yesterday was Big Game, Stanford vs. Cal. It’s one of the highlights of my year. I watched with the rest of the Stanford young alum group—and some Cal fans and a rowdy Colorado crew— at Finnerty’s in the East Village ($5 well drinks for Stanford alums? Yes, please!). We won.
Coming up this week is Thanksgiving, and my family arrives Tuesday night (hi, Mom and Dad!). We’ll be in the Hamptons Thursday-Saturday, then back to the city for another week of family adventures.
