Slight of hand

A favorite conversation of many of ours is which city is better? NYC or LA? You obviously know where I stand on this vital issue. However, one thing I have always maintained LA is stronger at is my friends have better birthday parties. Thanks in part to being a car culture and being easier to have a decent sized house. I’ve gone go-garting, to the zoo, played bongos – all with a cocktail in my hand. Us New Yorkers usually end up with the “let’s all just split it” dinner gathering or “let’s just meet at a bar and drink until we can’t see” party.

A friend of mine had her birthday party this past weekend at her uptown apartment and had a suerpb, simple idea: she invited a magician and she was terrific. We all ooh’d and aah’d. Giggled and screamed with delight. It was worth writing home about (or a blog about). The plethora of red wine didn’t hurt.
