While it’s not quite there yet, I can’t believe how fast this year is zooming by. It’s almost…almost September and believe me, it’s going to be a fun fall season. Lots of travel, lots of fun events which means lots to share. I’m actually using today to branch out to my other favorite continent – England for an event that I think you’ll love. Are you ready?

After work delights:
Inspired by the luxe, rustic elegance of the Alpine après ski lodges of St. Moritz, Covet Lounge effortlessly blends the best of both worlds: the sophistication and charm of uptown and ultra-sleek vibe of downtown. Covet’s haute Alpine coziness is combined with all the amenities New York City chic has to offer, and this is done through the harmonious pairing of distressed wood with embossed “croc-skin” paneling, and chrome accents. Covet Lounge will be hosting ‘After Work Hour’ taking place every Thursday evening this summer beginning August 5th at 5:30pm. Check them out as a rehearsal venue. The vibe is cool and the food yummy.
Covet is located at 137 E. 55th Street in New York City.
You know I love good food, good wine, good music and a cool vibe, which is why I’ve written and will continue to encourage you to visit San Rocco Restaurant. Honestly, the food and vibe will make you find a reason to return again and again.
San Rocco – 37 West 24th Street New York, NY 10010 (212) 255-4655. Open seven days a week.
