    Hmmm, I've never heard of this one - I'll have to check it out for sure.

    You can also have lunch at Da Silvano or the more affordable Bar Pitti right next door. A lot of celebrities lunch there b/c they will be spotted by papparazzi. Its like NYC's equivalant of the Ivy.

    Also if you just walk around the Village you are more likely than not to spot some celebrities. Most of them live there and are always walking around and running their errands.

    Do you like sneakers? There are great sneaker stores in SOHO and the village that sell sneakers you can't get anywhere else.

    Matie is obsessed with sneakers - he works for adidas though so that's the only brand he can wear. But he's always on the lookout for things you can't get anywhere else and he LOVES sneaker stores.

    For nightclubs I would recommend Mansion of Tenjune. If you get there earlier then you should have no problem getting in.

    A couple of other good places to have dinner...Tao, Buddha Bar, Budakon, Koi, these are all Japanese places but they are usually bumping and you can stay there after dinner for drinks and dancing.
    Thanks so much Glenda - there is so much info in here, I'm going to have to print this whole page out or something!

        I wanted to ask - where IS Serendipity? I think I tried to find it last time I was in NYC and couldn't find it anywhere. I keep hearing about this frozen hot chocolate that is apparently amazing? I love chocolate.

          225 East 60th Street...the frozen hot chocolate is the best! Although nothing beats the hot chocolate at Angelina's in Paris, France. LOL.

              There's also a thing right now in Central Park where for $25/person you can take a hot air balloon ride over the park. I've been wanting to do that for a while, but just haven't gotten around to it. Sounds like fun, and it's something different to do.

                Wow, that sounds pretty cool! I'm going to add that to my list...we were going to rent bikes in Central Park and ride around but a hot air balloon could be fun!

                  i think you should go to kion lounge and check it out for me. i'm thinking about having dh's surprise 30th there. it's a restaurant and it turns a little bit more clubby at night...

                  other than that......i think glenda and the other girls have covered it. definitely see wicked - it was fantastic!
