puttin' on the ritz
wherever you go, there you are. so when cathy and i wanted to pamper ourselves for a couple of days, but couldn't go too far since were invited to a party close to home, we chose the spankin' new ritz-carlton right here in white plains.
we arrived last night, and the ritz changed our room from a big suite to a bigger suite (thanks ritz) and we went down to the chic lounge for (too many) drinks and some late night fare. so far today we slept late, had croissants and fruit in bed, watched 3:10 to yuma (quite good) and then had lunch outside at the black bear saloon, walked around the bustling, revived downtown, and then headed to the mall for some browsing at crate and barrel and banana. the carvel i had along the way was gross. we headed home for a nap and shower before some pre-party entertaining for some old friends. more later.
