One Fifth Avenue by Candace Bushnell

I was a huge fan of the TV series Sex and the City, which was based off a book by the same name that was written by Candace Bushnell. Even though the show was on years ago and I loved it, I never read any of Bushnell’s novels before now. One Fifth Avenue is about the residents who live at the address that is the book’s title. It was an easy, end of day, fun read. Like Sex and the City it contained large doses of sex, drugs, gossip, backstabbing, murder, society and New York City.

It turns out that The Maritime Hotel‘s bar and restaurant, La Bottega, is quite a happening spot. Girls come through here dressed like they’re going clubbing and there have been some celebrity sightings too. We didn’t see any on Friday night when all of these photos were taken, but last night I met up with John and his friend Emily for a drink at the hotel bar and they bumped into Isaiah Washington, that guy who made the ruckus on Grey’s Anatomy when he made homophobic remarks to his gay co-actor. Then while we were getting drinks she spotted Josh Pais, who played “The Modelizer” on a Sex & the City episode, and Seth Meyers from Saturday Night Live.

Anyway, these photos were taken on Friday night after we got back from the airport and settled into our hotel. La Bottega has a great big huge patio area with umbrella’d tables that makes it really nice to eat and drink outdoors, so that’s exactly what we did.
