Movie Poster, originally uploaded by nichellest.

I saw this movie poster as I walked home from the Sex and The City party late last night. The party was so much fun. I met some wonderful people. Funny that the party was in Fort Greene Brooklyn where I doubt Carrie & friends would hang out.

BTW, I didn’t find out until last night that there is a 7-11 on Fifth Avenue in Park Slope.

Also cosmos, pink champagne, and cupcakes make for a killer hangover. What was I thinking?!

Rising Up

Saturday, I went to the 16th Annual Park Slope Open Studio Tour. My friends and I started the tour at MadArts, a group artist studio in South Slope. We met some innovative artists including Paul Mallo, Joetta Maue, Jimmy Fountain and Brooke Toczylowski. Then we stopped Richard Egan’s house, as well as few other places before hopping on a bus to get to a fashion/art party in an area of Brooklyn that I like to call Pro-Crow (Prospect Heights/Crown Heights). Later, we went to a  couple of ICFF design parties in Soho and drank champagne out of a can.

This has been a real sweet week, and today was great. I attended a media luncheon at Tavern on the Green to announce the kick-off for Cancer Care’s Annual Cupcakes For a Cause Bake Sale Season. Clare Crespo, our inspiration for the cupcake blog, was there giving tips on baking  fun cupcakes!

Duncan Hines is the national sponsor and the cupcake is from their new decadent carrot cake mix which is really good!

brooklyn bridge art from bwac, originally uploaded by nichellest.

Yesterday was a culture-filled Saturday. First I went to Red Hook for the BWAC Spring Show. A few of the artists celebrated the 125th anniversary of the Brooklyn Bridge by creating lovely pieces inspired by the bridge.

Second, my friends and I went up to Chelsea to the Cueto Project, a massive gallery and artist co-op space, to attend the opening reception of Russian artist Alexander Ponomarev who exhibited his work, Surface Tension.

Third, attended a party for the IRT Theater in the Village where Andy Horowitz is the new creative director.

Fourth, stopped by Leo Kesting Gallery and chatted with artist Brian Leo whose I have seen previously at Jonathan Shorr. Gallery.

Lastly, ate bread while my friends had dinner at Florent.
