Whoever said that the best shows to see in New York are on Broadway is about to get a little education in the experience of theater. "Sleep No More" is an interpretation on Shakespeare's Macbeth like none I've ever seen before. I'm so glad I took the advice of one of my dearest friends and wandered over into Chelsea to the McKittrick Hotel where I was totally immersed in the magic that is theater for three hours.

It's August. Why am I already thinking about Halloween, it's not until the end of October? Well, there are a few reasons. 1 - I love Halloween and think about it a lot, probably way more than any normal person should. I start looking forward to the next Halloween on November first. 2- I make my own costumes. In my 32 years I have not yet worn a store-bought costume and I'm not about to start now. 3- My costumes are usually highly planned and intricately executed and need a lot of time to complete. Maybe I'll inspire you to make your own costume or maybe you'll just roll your eyes at how much time and effort I put into this, but either way I'm going break it down for you.
It's a Sunday afternoon in New York and you want to get your drink on with the beautiful people. Ya, I get it. Sometimes I'm in the mood for that too, so we headed for the rooftop at the Standard Hotel to a little spot they call "Le Bain", which translates to "The Bath" for those of you who didn't get through elementary school French. I think it has something to do with the hot tub they have in the middle of the bar, although I've been warned to proceed with caution; there are cooties in there.
