HARRY and MEGAN will sleep here……..

The night before their nuptials……in keeping with tradition…..the Royal couple will NOT be sleeping together.

Harry will sleep here at Coworth Park Hotel and enjoy 5 star bliss.

He will have his morning “cup o tea” is this very quiet setting…… {with 20 security personnel at the other tables}.

HARRY will have a tranquil nights sleep in this beautiful suite for $1,100.

MEGAN will settle in for the night at Clivenden House.

A suite for the future Duchess…………but is blue her color??

She can cozy up to the fireplace………….with her bodyguards…….who will be with her for the rest of her life.

HURRICANE WINDS hit my Terrace at 5pm

And then horrendous rains poured down………..threatening the scaffolds which had not been weighted down.

My pots….trees and flowers were tossed about………DAMN!

BLOODSHED IN GAZA

Please read these two articles…..

COCKTAILS on the Terrace • NY Athletic club

The location of the NY ATHLETIC CLUB is so convenient……just off Fifth Avenue and a block from Central Park.

The rooftop terrace is……fun….sun….and cocktails………or tea.

It’s fun to see my apartment  there in the tower in the distance……..from one terrace to another.

Tid-bits are served……….blue cheese bruschetta with mango for starters.

CAKEBREAD CELLARS………….ordered that just because the name is so amusing.

 

 

 

LUNCH at the New York Athletic Club

The TAP ROOM……less formal than the dining room……..is perfect for lunch.  You have to be with a member………as no cash is accepted…….it goes on your club charge……[and you will need your stockbroker …..to pay for it.]

CHARLES..…..bartender here for 37 years……remembers who drinks what.

I had an alcohol-free beer…….KALIBER

All of these dishes were delicious …..but the NY STRIP……..over the top.

Desserts are a rather simple affair……..as was the coffee.
