Last Friday, I went to support a friend who happens to be a publicist and was hosting a party for the opening of Bixby & Ball. It was such a cute home store—in an actual 1920s house (stop by if you’re ever in Solana Beach!). The place was decorated like a house in Nantucket.
Then last night, I was working on a story and missed a Missoni party hosted by my friend who’s an editor at C magazine. I was sorry to not enjoy the free cocktails around the $2,000 merchandise.
But can I just say, with regards to parties in stores, alcohol + merchandise freaks me out. I can be a wee bit clumsy.
Anyway…….my favorite parties take place in cool homes, at fun bars, or on the beach. Ooh! And I wanted to have my next birthday party at Del Posto and pre-order the Hundred-Layer Lasagne, carved tableside, but alas, I do not live in NYC any more.
