Sunday Brunch in Chelsea

Sunday Brunch in Chelsea | New York I Love You™ | Scoop.it
Corinna Bajocco's insight:

Sunday morning with a visit to the art galleries. Sunday morning with a walk along the Highline. Nostalgic Sunday morning of contemplation at the Chelsea Hotel. Sunday morning of fashion with frantic shopping at the MeatPacking District. Pleasantly following advice to brunch at Tipsy Parson. When times are tough, even New Yorkers tend to eat at home and go out less. But what happens when two imaginative restaurant owners in the trendiest quarter of the Big Apple decide to transform their restaurant into a cozy, welcoming place like certain Southern houses? What happens is that the place is always full. Although neither Tasha Gibson nor Julie Wallach are originally from Georgia or Louisiana, they had the bright idea to create a fantasy in perfect Dixieland style, and also the aromas and flavors that actually feed certain fantasies. Indeed the food is as nostalgic as the décor, firmly anchored below the Mason-Dixon Line. The aperitifs at the bar are exactly what a Carolina lady might prepare of a Sunday morning after church. Shrimps and figs, wrapped in bacon, pinned with a toothpick and covered in a bourbon sauce. What can I say, the result is “comfortable” and rustic.

Mrs. Wallach certainly isn’t the queen of casseroles, but here a rough generosity reigns, with no girly frills. Her cooking certainly won’t impress you, but you’ll be ever so heartened by her food.

Fashion Week Extravaganza is about to begin

Fashion Week Extravaganza is about to begin | New York I Love You™ | Scoop.it

Labor Day weekend is over and that means New York Fashion Week is here, and as everyone knows, it's not just about the clothes. It's also about the fabulous parties where everyone talks about the clothes. Or is supposed to talk about them.

1. TOP OF THE STANDARD— Andre Balazs's Standard Hotel is always ground zero for New York Fashion Week and this one will be no different. The TOTS (ne Boom Boom Room) re-opened last year after a summer hiatus with a Kanye West performance and will once again play host to the Fendi O’ music series that will feature performances by Lykke Li and James Murphy, as well as the Purple party and probably a few others. Throw Le Bain into the mix with this one for events that take over the entire 18th Floor and what you have is the #1 place for Fashion Week nightlife.

2. THE ELECTRIC ROOM— Nur Khan will be showing off his new room in the basement of the Dream Downtown at this Strategic Group run space. Expect some intimate and wild gatherings during the debut of the space and several mentions in various gossip columns. It also gets major points for being the only truly new space that is opening in time for Fashion Week, always crucial when trying to make a splash.

3. WESTWAY— Matt Kliegman and Carlos Quirarte's new West Village club may have been one of the big losers during New York Fashion Week in February, but the club has been up and running all summer long and is ready to claim itself as the hottest club operating below Houston. Expect some smaller but important fashion world players to throw their events here.

4. Ph-D— That other rooftop nightclub near the MePa opened big in the spring and has put together some very good summer nights. Expect the Strategic Tao group to show off their new club with a mix of Fashion Week events and late nights while Nur Khan holds court in the Electric Room below.

5. HOTEL AMERICANO— There are no Fashion Week events scheduled at the new hotel that is trying to make W. 27th Street a destination once again, but New York's newest boutique hotel is poised to become a place to be during the week as a yin to the Standard's yang. Or is it the other way? No matter, expect this place to be hopping over the next week as visitors enjoy the food and beverage spaces that soft opened over the summer.

6. THE DARBY— The Butter group's supper club may not be the newest game in town this year, but it does have the ability to attract boldfaced names to come by and jump on stage to wow the crowd, and the place also has its new basement lounge fully up and running, something that wasn't available the past two Fashion Weeks.

Professional Women Photographers Online works : writer and journalist Corinna Bajocco

Professional Women Photographers Online works : writer and journalist Corinna Bajocco | New York I Love You™ | Scoop.it

PWP is an active group of over 200 photographers. Many are full time working photographers, some work part-time both in fine art and commercial areas and others work in related fields as photo editors, photo researchers and curators. And, since almost all members are working digitally - either shooting, scanning, printing or all three, the sharing of information through PWP's very active group email as well as through small informal venues is an important part of our program.

On the first Wednesday of each month, from September through June, the group meets to look at the work of one or more guest presenters and discuss a range of issues surrounding photographers in today's world. These meetings provide an opportunity to network and share concerns and information with colleagues in an informal setting. Small group committee meetings also offer the opportunity to get involved in greater depth by working on a specific aspect of PWP's activities. And today, PWP also gives back to the community and the industry through its student awards and frequent workshops and exhibitions.

Even though today the number of women photographers is about equal to men, there is still a need to hear women speak about how they have created lives for themselves, combining photography with other demands such as parenting and partnering. At Professional Women Photographers we still speak from the heart, sharing what nurtures our art.
