Christmas in NYC: Wollman Rink, The Pierre Hotel, & Kelley & Ping

Check out the kid near the orange cone about to slip on the ice!

Last week, we celebrated my friend's 30th birthday with ice skating at Wollman Rink, followed by a wonderful festive time at Two e Lounge at The Pierre Hotel. Two e Lounge is my new favorite spot to meet up with people. I have been three times in the past two weeks! The night's high point was an impromptu living nativity scene in front of The Pierre's Christmas tree. I'm going to post this photo because I can't stop laughing looking at it.  I'm a sheep. Notice the angel in the back, "wise guy" bringing cupcakes as a gift, Mary, Joseph, and shepherds.  Baby Jesus looks like a fur ball.  Who says you can't have massive amounts in a fun in a really fancy, fabulous hotel?

End of the night at The PierreWe also went to my favorite neighborhood Asian spot, Kelley & Ping in SoHo, last week. This is the best spot-I've NEVER waited even during prime times on Friday & Saturday nights. It's also inexpensive for NYC.  Great Christmas decorations!
