Due to her contacts in the fashion industry, Megan gets invited to the best fashion shows and hobnobs with the in-crowd. Today, she's filming a video for Cover Girl. I feel more stylish just hanging out with her.
You know you're approaching Fashion Week when you start seeing attractive young women wearing sky-high platform heels. One girl had on red-soled Louboutin's with three-inch platforms in front and seven-inch heels in back. I feared for her safety. The shoes were very cute, though.
To start our evening, I whisked Megan to my favorite ice bar. Going there always perks up your mood. Dipping into 23-degrees is a refreshing shock to the system. Megan enjoyed the experience.
Later, I escorted her to one of my favorite restaurants in the city, The Delta Grill, which has great character -- and alligator sausage. We ate Cajun dishes and I was reminded of my trip to New Orleans a few years ago. I went there during Mardi Gras, just after the Saints had won the Super Bowl. It was an intensely festive affair and I even saw star-quarterback Drew Brees on top of a Mardi Gras float, tossing miniature toy-footballs. I also spotted political pundit James Carville at the bar of a restaurant I was eating.
It was fun seeing Megan again. She was, of course, dressed amazingly and carrying a neon leather clutch with charming lace cut-outs. We caught up on personal stuff and discussed the future of blogging.
I also snapped some pictures to give you a flavor of New York. They're below.
