The third week in June in Aspen  is a destination for  ‘sophisticated foodies’!  This year Black River Caviar participated in both the Aspen food and Wine and the Cochon 555 Heritage Fire.  A Russian Oscietra was flown in from Uruguay.   “We partnered with Krug Champagne and had the opportunity to introduce our product to new clients.   A highlight of our weekend was the Cochon Heritage Fire where we flew in a Russian Oscietra and offered our clients very fresh eggs! “, said Graham Gaspard President of Black River Caviar.

How cool is it that alumni fly from all over the globe to bid farewell to a beloved teacher? Professor Malcolm Higgins, renamed ‘Henry’ (though we are not quite sure who by..) decided to retire after 47 years!  This was not taken lightly by his beloved students, many of whose children also had the privilege of his guidance and friendship.  Thank you Henry for bringing us together after forty years!

The 13th Annual Palm Beach Fine Craft Show as this year’s show promises to drive even more cultural tourism to Palm Beach County, given the added surprises up its sleeve.  This year the event has added a charitable component to engage some of the country’s most prominent collectors.   The by-invitation only party will be held Friday, February 26th.  Appropriately billed “Head to Toes”, the reception will benefit three organizations that improve children’s lives, through the art and education to enrich their minds, down to the shoes that will protect their feet.

Considered to be the #1 Fine Craft Show in the Country based on artist’s sales by Art Fair Source Book, a leading resource in the industry, the juried event will showcase and offer for sale a unique and vetted selection of contemporary American fine craft.

Cultural Tourists typically stay longer and spend more when visiting a destination. This year the show will be bigger and better than ever, with over 135 master and emerging artists from all over the country convening at our show,” says Elizabeth Kubie, Director of the Palm Beach Fine Craft Show.

Everyone who is ANYONE knows Patrick McMullan as the pioneer of celebrity and society photography, famous for memorializing candid shots of A-listers, fashionistas, designers, models, actors, artists, socialites and captains of industry. Patrick is also a columnist, philanthropist, entrepreneur and documentarian. Born in New York, educated at NYU, Patrick majored in business and “minored in Studio 54.” His impact on pop culture and New York City nightlife is legendary and documented through an extensive archive.

But what not all of us know about Patrick is that throughout his iconic career spanning over 3 decades, Patrick has been building his own private collection of photographs. An eclectic ensemble of over 200 artworks chosen for this exhibition, which in addition to his own prized photos, includes those from renowned photographers David LaChapelle, Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, Steven Klein, Peter Beard, Harry Benson, Mary Ellen Mark, Michael Thompson, Roe Etheridge, Jessica Craig Martin, Scavullo to Salgado, to outsider art, Hollywood studio shots, and familiar kitsch. Some were gifts, some were trades and some were purchased from charity auctions, which he sometimes photographed. Each of course has a story and a sentiment….

I had been there once– many years ago, and loved the ocean setting… then I went there two weeks ago and have returned 5 times since! I feel I discovered the best kept secret, only I fear the secret is now out!!!

The freshness of the food and the exquisite prepartion by Internationally acclaimed American Celebrity Chef Jeremy Hanlon, formerly of New York’s Restaurant Daniel (as in Boulud) is what makes this charming oceanfront destination a formidable dining experience! “Where else can you invite a large group of friends for fine dining outdoors in the summer months, directly on the ocean, not feel the heat and not make a huge dent
in your wallet? I’ve lived here for over 25 years, and it’s either a private stuffy club or a touristy hotel.”

My favorites? The whole Maine Lobster with a side of baked scallops over avocado and tomato coulis I had last Friday night accompanied by a bottle of a fabulous Rosé reminded me of my favorite spot in St. Barts. Jeremy’s signature Quinoa Chicken Salad and Chicken Tacos I had for lunch last week and the Lobster Eggs Benedict I had the week before for brunch were over the top!

I’ll talk about the cocktails in a future blog, as that’s a whole other story worth elaboration!

When visiting my friends in Palm Beach, I learned one thing– The Chesterfield Palm Beach is the ‘locals’ favorite”. Perfectly situated, a block away from Worth Avenue’s famed boutiques and hottest spots to see and be seen, two blocks away from the pristine beaches of Palm Beach, the Chesterfield is also the meeting place for locals and celebrities who appreciate dining al fresco in the Courtyard, and covening at the iconic and vibrant Leopard Lounge for drinks, which usually culminates with dinner …(once I’m there, I don’t want to leave!!)

I understand they now have fabulous summer specials– I also hear from the locals its the best time to go! The snowbirds are gone! Book any of The Chesterfield’s gorgeous Junior or Master Suites for two nights and receive the third night free. Perfect for a long weekend or an extended holiday, this “3 Nights for the Price of 2” package keeps on giving with a maximum of nine nights in total.

I traveled to Bora Bora with my family and absolutely loved every second of it. We were lucky enough to stay at the Four Seasons Resort  in a bungalow that overlooked the water.  It was probably one of the most memorable experiences ever!!

 I had the opportunity to go cage diving with sharks in Bora Bora which was the thrill of a lifetime. My sister Chesley kept saying cage diving “was so intense yet exciting at the same time!”  Believe me it was more than exciting… Seeking an adrenalin rush, and then much more..

 Known for its crystal clear waters, white sand beaches, and amazing Bloody Mary’s, Bora Bora may be the best tropical paradise in the world. Many people choose Bora Bora as their dream getaway whether it is for a romantic honeymoon, or simply an outstanding family vacation!

Outdoor activities are a must when the temperatures rarely fall below 80 degrees. Whether you’re seeking adrenaline (like we did…) or prefer tranquility there is something for everyone. Cage diving with sharks, Parasailing, snorkeling, jet-skiing, and boating are just some of the few things that Bora Bora has to offer. 

However it wasn’t just the activities that made this trip amazing for my family. The locals on the island were so welcoming and helpful to all of us which made it that more enjoyable.

Bora Bora is a dream location that has so many things to offer while there. So before planning your next vacation, consider Bora Bora. You will not regret it!!
