Neodandi Spring/Summer 2013 Runway Show

Neodandi's Spring/Summer 2013 Runway Show was not a classical fashion show. It was a unique presentation where fashion met intellect through a 30-minute choreographed performance. Models from all over the world posed distinctively so that each design could be seen and appreciated from many angles while announcing the three collections of the designer, Niilartey De Osu: In Passion We Trust; Mona Lisa Blues and O Love, You Are Full of Stars. This runway show was Neodandi's official introduction to New York, with plans for a pop-up store in NYC later this Fall, and permanent storefront in 2013.

Eat and Drink at the US OPEN

Federer might be out of this year US OPEN final but Southern BBQ is in. A stroll at the US OPEN's food court will give you plenty of culinary choice and will satisfy your gourmandism! You still have three days to experience both tennis and its pairing food. Booze is allowed - cocktails, bubbly and beer are all there. Prepare to spend more than usual and for a surprise: There is no Starbucks. For your Joe's fix, try Cuppa Spotta. Carnegie Deli, Cheese Steak & Tenders, Crepes Express, Daruma of Tokyo Sushi, Franks and Fries, Fresca Mexicana,  Fulton Seafood offer their delicacies as well.

At the Stonyfield Cafe, get a cup of Greek style yogurt from Oikos.

For the lovers of beer, Heineken has its own pop-up store.

But Moet as well and it does not come cheap as you can imagine....

Pig Island

I have been to numerous food events and shows but the Pig Island event in Governors Island was rather unique. It only offered dishes with pork, sausages, fois gras and related to pig ingredients. Does it sound tasty or maybe too much? Take a look at the photos and find out! A picture speaks 1,000 words so no  more comments from me.

Bacon cookies!
