"Why He Didn't Call You Back" & The Last Supper
Last night, I attended a fabulous book launch party at Tory Burch in the Meat Packing district. It was for the new dating book, "Why He Didn't Call you Back" by Rachel Greenwald.
(TOTAL style faux pas! I didn't wear ANY TB to a party at the TB store. Tsk, tsk JGIWC. Dress and boots by J. Crew; bag by Marc Jacobs.)
This is NOT just another dating book (think "He's Just Not That Into You", a book I refused to read - and thought the movie was a complete letdown). The author was fresh, smart, and incredibly well-versed in the subject of dating. She said some extremely insightful things, my personal favorite being, "I've been to over 700 weddings and one the thing that every bride has in common is that the man is everything they wanted but wrapped in a completely different package than they were expecting."
Single gals, RUN don't walk to your nearest bookstore. I think Cousin Patti would agree that this woman knows what she's talking about.
After the party, we headed to Pastis for The Last Supper. This is traditionally my last dinner before Passover begins. I have to carb it up in preparation for the longest 8 days of the year. I had their mushroom ravioli and the warm chocolate cake. I rarely order something that decadent for myself, but what the hey.
Chag Sameach, everyone!
