Friends, Lunch and Art on the West Side.

We went a little further afield today – to the Lower West Side to meet Sylvia for lunch at Cipriani Downtown.

All this as part of Mum’s ongoing birthday celebrations. I think we’ll be celebrating for awhile yet …

Sylvia had come up from Miami to attend an Art Fair.

She has two Miami Malteses whom I have yet to meet but Mum – she adores them A LOT!!!! Hmmm.

So I wonder what Mum is going to have for lunch.

Besides a Bellini or two …

Surprise! Surprise! No matter where she is in the world of Ciprianis –

Baked tagliatelle with ham!

this is the same dish she always has. She really tried hard to find something else but alas, she failed again. I think she decided that if at Cirpirani then just have one of their signature dishes. Why change? Because …

So can I have a taste of it?

After lunch, we girls got into a taxi and were off to the…

International Art Fair

We weren’t sure if I was allowed in …

No problem! And I got a lot of attention everywhere we went!

And we were soon immersed in art!

This was a little scary!
Some were familiar
DON’T burst that bubble over my head!!!
Peek-a-boo! I see you!

We’re not Downtown nor West Side a lot – so this was a little detour form our usual! Till tomorrow when we have something fun to share with you … or not!

May’s comment:

Cheers to LIFE and Friends to share it with!

Thank you Sylvia and Lynne – toasting to many more!

About a month ago, we went to Cipriani London – yes, dog-friendly too. But you must tell them when booking and the dogs must be able to sit quietly under the table.

I got dressed up in my Overglam jumper for the smart evening.

And guess what I had! LOL!

Cipriani London is at 23-25 Davies St, Mayfair, London W1K 3DE, UK

Check out our Wine & Dine listing for dog-friendly restaurants in London.

    You certainly know how to celebrate a birthday, May! I’m a tad jealous! Here’s to many, many more happy celebrations!
    Think I’ll add Cipriani’s to our list of restaurants to go with our grandkids next month in London.
    Continue safe travels!
