rainy days are great for singing + throwbacks. keep your head up & your dress dry. a rainy day in paris, rue de buci: during the previous new year getaway to miami, i performed a few singing numbers including covers + originals. this is a snippet of one of the documented rehearsals dedicated to the wonderful host. enjoy!
congratulations to mac miller, newly signed by warner bros music with a multimillion dollar contract! he was doing perfectly fine on his own with his talented self, his great team behind him, & his strong army of diehard fans across the world, but this is certainly exciting news so let’s celebrate by revisiting one of my favorite videos of his [where I was featured]. :D awesome music, poker, & scotch. what more do we need?pocket aces…
not a poker face… behind the scenes photoshoot, knife on my garter.
crystal crystals, everywhere, and there’s even delicious cocktails to drink. this new addition has stolen a piece of my heart. its aesthetically pleasing decor is on point, reminiscent of its older sibling & also a longtime favorite of mine, raines law room, with the extra glitz from the curtains of sparkling crystals literally everywhere. think the cosmopolitan hotel in vegas, or hotel lisboa in macau. it is a speakeasy-esque themed non-speakeasy, with no hidden entrance but a glamorous celebration of the great times after the silly ridiculous prohibition era, with carefully crafted libations of course. bravo to interior designer, delphine mauroit — inspired by the film “midnight in paris,” she takes you on a time travel from the jfk times to our favorite gatsby, then abe lincoln, then finally marie antoinette. definitely try the “whiskey business: rye, anchilo chile liqueur, cinnamon, lemon, angostura bitters for those who like a kick, a whiskey backbone with a smoked pepper pop” great thing is there are more food options than raines…and did i read foie gras parfait? needless to say, i will be returning to try more. you don’t even need to go far for a decent selfie. tabletops are mirrored. but if you must, here is a gorgeous mirror in one of the restrooms.
the buzzers for each table light up when you ring the “bell” at your table when you need service. [new york] girls just wanna have fun…& crystals & delicious cocktails & great food & just everything really.
thank you to the team behind raines for this beautiful piece of work.
