What better way to spend a Wednesday evening than hangin' high atop 5th Avenue at Salon de Ning, the new Shanghai-chic rooftop bar and lounge at the posh Peninsula Hotel, to preview the also new Manhattan Magazine? All in perfect 84 degree weather no less.
While I'll admit that I didn't even get a chance to look at the magazine (I'm sure it's wonderful), I did enjoy all the pretty dresses, designer handbags and breathtaking views of midtown (the open bar with exotic vodka cocktails and delicious Peking duck rolls didn't suck either).
Thank you to my always fabulous date Glenn Belverio for having me.
This girl had the most beautiful vintage Dior clutch! I had to get a shot of it with her cute dragonfly brooch.
I'm a sucker for spectacular city views--especially during sunset...
...But to give a more clear idea of the rooftop atmosphere, I took the liberty of stealing some photos of Salon de Ning from NYmag.com.
Knockin' on heaven's door: Glenn, post-party, in front of a church we walked passed on the way home. Great door, right?
At this point, I should have really been in that cab passing by behind me instead of standing on 5th Ave. taking pictures...
