Max Richter at (Le) Poisson Rouge

Max Richter at (Le) Poisson Rouge

Originally scheduled to take place at St. Ann's and the Holy Trinity Church in Brooklyn Heights, I bought tickets to this event far in advance and with such excitement that I’ve been really looking forward to it ever since. To hear Max Richter’s music in a church seemed like a dream come true. So I was quite disappointed when they changed the venue to (Le) Poisson Rouge. I was looking for more of a serene environment to fully experience Richter's music I love so dearly, not in a hot airless space where one uncomfortably bumps into other people as if on the subway during rush hour.

We went to London and saw the Royal Family.

My copywriting partner and I went to London on a business trip. And the last day of our trip before our flight, we decided to go check out St. Paul’s Cathedral since she had never been there and I was near tears in awe the last time I visited.

Jeff Koons: A Retrospective // Part 1 of 2

Whether you’re a fan or not, we saw a whole lot of Jeff Koons this year in NYC. And today is the last day of JEFF KOONS: A RETROSPECTIVE at Whitney’s Marcel Breuer building. This exhibition is kind of a big deal, because it’s Koons’ first major museum presentation in New York, even though he has been regarded as one of the popular and controversial artists. And also this is the last exhibition before Whitney reopens in Meatpacking District in 2015. I have loved this museum as long as I have lived here in the city, there was no way I was going to miss this. And it turned out that it was one of the most exciting shows I have visited.
