Garden Party



Last Night was the annual Garden Party, fund raiser for the GLBT Center of NYC. This years theme was food and entertainment. There were 35 restaurants represented with little tents serving a small course. I met April Bloomfield of the Spotted Pig (one of the judges of Top Chef) and Lisa one of the top three finalists of Top Chef, looking fabulous in her new short haircut. The best restaurants in NYC were represented. The MC was Kate Clinton, and Ruth Reichl former reviewer for the New the New York Times and presently the editor of Gourmet Magazine spoke. The Lavender Light Gospel Choir sang. The site was a pier on the Hudson. The weather stayed clear despite the threat of rain and even the high humidity lifted. The sunset on the river was beautiful

Thanks, It was great and fabulous and a wonderful time and I saw friends I only see once a year. The food, well, BL ate herself silly, but I only "tasted" at each tent that would make 35 tastes (only kidding") I skipped a few, but went back a few times to some-the smoked tomato soup with basil foam at Spotted Pig was lovely. Yum.
