TGIF! What are you doing with your weekend? Tonight I'm the appointed Margarita maker at a dear friend's birthday party on the Upper West Side (a role I do not take lightly). Then I'm hoping for a weekend in which Iget some good writing done- the magic combination of good coffee, a cat on my lap and a bit of Chopin tends to do the trick (plus a pastry from here when the going gets tough). Have a beautiful one, my loves. My usual round up below.
