Busy Sundays – Tribeca, Ctown and Chikalicious

Catching up on the events of the past few weeks – it is crazy how fast life passes you by and summer turns into winter. The beginning of fall was filled with exciting happenings: friends visiting from out of town, discovering new areas of the city, and of course, enjoying a lot of great food.

First stop: I am now volunteering with Housing Works, and I helped out at the Tribeca Showtime house in September. The two penthouses were amazing and the designers did a great job with styling each  room for each Showtime show. So this is what it feels like to be a millionaire:

I was also absolutely delighted that my friend M came all the way from Japan to visit! Mini Penn reunion at Shanghai Cafe – oldie but a goodie 🙂
