What a Whirlwind Vacation
September was a crazy month. This is when we close the Hi-Life Cafe for 3 weeks every year for our annual holiday. As I still am doing my weekly TV gig on the Cada Dia morning show on Telemundo, I just took some short trips. First up was Casa Morada in Islamorada down in the Keys. What a spectacular place. Kind of shabby sheik. Thanks to Heidi and everyone there for making our stay so memorable. If you ever get the chance, this is a must stop. Just so peaceful and beautiful...and the pampering never seems to end.
Next up, I had the opportunity to fly to LA for the Emmy Award party that Bravo threw for the Magical Elves and those of us involved in Top Chef as well as Project Runway. Ihad a blast. I got to see so many familiar faces, some of whom you are sure to recognize in these pictures. Even though Top Chef did not walk away with an Emmy, we were all proud of the production team for the nomination and we had a great time at the party.
The following week we flew up to NYC for a few days. We had amazing weather and some amazing meals as well. Dined at Eleven Madison Park. What a beautiful restaurant. Along with some friends, we had the chef's 12 course tasting menu. What a ride it was. And it was alot of fun as our server recognized me from the show. That is always such a rush!
We got the chance to dine at Harold's new restaurant down in the village, Perilla's. Harold looks great and it was wonderful to see the place packed. His food is very down to earth and delicious. Thanks to his entire staff for the generous hospitality.
More exciting news is around the corner...Hopefully I can share it with you next week. Stay tuned...
