"Make Your Own Drink" Bar
above left: finally, you could drop in a chunk of fresh fruit, which had been marinating in some other delicious liquor. It was really an amazing drink! above right: Me and the girls enjoy our unique beverages on the way out to the car.
We ended up smuggling our drinks outside of the restaurant where the car was waiting for us. Here I am (at left) enjoying my creation: Champagne and Pear nectar with a dash of fresh fruit. It was really delicous and a nice way to end a delicious meal. So, if you are ever in New York and go to this restaurant, be sure to check out this bar feature, it's difficult to explain but is really quite unique. Mags- if you read this, check out their website.
Soon we were on our way to Madison Square Garden for the second evening of the Westminster Dog Show. It was cold and snowing quite hard. Actually, it was sleeting-which made it difficult to navigate around the city. Fortunately I wasn't driving and was able to relax while our driver dealt with the elements! Even though the weather was a bit gnarly, it was beautiful. New York is a magical city pretty much anytime of the year.
