Ensemble, Food

A huge tent in midtown, slushy snow, & $5 Varenykys.

For those who don’t know, I walked out of my apartment like this yesterday. Yep, when there was about 4 inches of snow on the ground and a bajillion flurries in the air, I decided to wear this. And if you can’t see it clearly, yes I wore fur and velvet. Because yolo, amirite?

By last night, all the pretty fluffy snow turned into ugly brown mush on the streets and HORRID slushy puddles on corners and intersections. A walk from Herald Square to 45th street turned into a game of ‘Guess-How-Deep-This-Puddle-Is!’ as I dodged persistent tourists to get to Kazino – the tented venue for Natasha, Pierre, & The Great Comet of 1812.

Valentine’s Schmalentines!

Valentine’s Day is coming up. I usually don’t do anything special – mayyyyybe dinner but it’s really not that big of a deal. However, I recently found out that the theatrical event Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812 is soon coming to an end. So it looks like that’s what I’ll be doing on Thursday.

Friday is a viewing of Winter’s Tale (I’ve been drooling over Colin Farrel since S.W.A.T. which happens to be one of my favorite movies *DON’T JUDGE ME!* and I own it on dvd and at one point in my life, watched it over and over again for about two months. But stream of consciousness aside, this is probably a story for another blogpost). I don’t even know what the premise of the film is – it just looks like it involves magic or time travel or both so I’m sold. It’s looking like I’ll be shoveling GMO-filled popcorn in my mouth within the confines of a dark movie theater, surrounded by strangers. That beats the hell out of any Valentine’s Dinner Pre-fix Menu, amirite?
