Karl Lagerfeld has another chic collaboration to add to his illustrious list! To celebrate the 350th anniversary of the Château Rauzan-Ségla vineyard, Karl designed the label for the 2009 vintage. In true Karl fashion, he created a colorful and elegant sketch of the castle in the Margaux appellation of Bordeaux, France. Chanel acquired the winery in 1994 so it’s a family affair.
Amar’e resurrected the NY Knicks, and for that we are all grateful! The Garden is buzzing again, and with the recent addition of Melo, the season continues to get better! Since arriving in NYC, Amar’e has been taking care of business on and off the court. He’s teaming up with Rachel Roy to produce a fashion line, launching youth basketball academies this summer, and is averaging 26 pts, 8 rebounds and 2 blocks per game. I would say Amar’e is #WINNING!
Amar’e has embraced all NYC has to offer especially when it comes to good eats!

Pop-up dining experiences are all the rage in NYC! In November, I featured my experience at “The Thirst”- a secret dinner and cocktail party that was hosted by chef Todd English. Today, I want to share details about a more unique pop-up dining event that’s headed to Manhattan.
Cochon 555 is a one-of-a-kind traveling culinary competition and tasting event–five chefs, five pigs, five wine makers–to promote sustainable farming of heritage breed pigs. Each stop along the ten-city tour offers hard-working local farmers the opportunity to connect with like-minded agriculturalists, renowned chefs and the pork-loving public. Cochon 555 is the only heritage breed pig culinary competition in the country.
Lucky for us, Cochon 555 will be in NYC on January 23rd at the Lighthouse, Hudson River and 23rd! Each event provides pig-loving epicureans with a sampling of pork dishes served with wines from five different small wineries. After the tasting, guests and a panel of 20 judges vote for the winning local chef (the Prince or Princess of Porc) who will travel to the FOOD & WINE Classic in Aspen to compete in the finale for the title of King or Queen. Guests have the opportunity to eat well and be part of an amazing food and wine community while supporting sustainable agriculture.

Tricia: What are your favorite restaurants in NYC? And Why?
So everything that happens in Vegas doesn’t necessarily stay in Vegas! This Vegas Thai resto migrated to NYC a few weeks ago.
Everything we had was very good- some more memorable than others. The bold flavors, spicy kicks, textures, high quality ingredients, and combinations really got us excited . The broad menu offers regional and inventive dishes.
Tom Yum Koong: Spicy sour soup with prawns, lime, lemongrass and cilantro. A wonderful way to start the meal- a warm, flavorful bowl of yumminess!
