Dinner Party at Brooklyn Museum
Judy Chicago’s “The Dinner Party” was so groundbreaking when she finished it, but I had never seen it. While visiting Julia yesterday we stumbled into its permanent installation at the Brooklyn Museum. Oh. My. God. A huge triangular table with place settings for individual women, each with hand-embroidered, draped placemats and beautiful ceramic plates. I am definitely coming back for seconds.
Other highlights of NYC 3/30-4/1: Dinner at Nikki and Dave Goodsmith’s apt. on the 17th floor overlooking the East River; brunch at Julia’s with Anuj, Amee, Annie & Mark; Dan getting locked inside the Brooklyn Botanical Garden while we were in the museum; pizzeria for dinner; bars for Final Four; morning brunch with Dan’s high school chum Lois at Rosewater; Big Anniversary Surprise thanks to Julia and Leigh Ann: Broadway for Venus in Fur, then dinner at Ma Peche (both four stars!); feet now up on coffee table. I am lovin’ life.
