I have more pics to add here because an amazing thing happened - my four original AMDA girl friends and I, for the first time in a long while, were all dressed to the nines, high heels and everything, and we inadvertently all coordinated in black black with a hint of black. Meaning that we looked like either a really fierce girl band or the ensemble cast of a very glamorous TV show doing a photo shoot for the season box set cover (Desperate Housewives, for example). And for fun and also because we haven't had a new group picture for a while and because it's been so long since we all got dressed up, we took a lot of pictures, coming soon.
We went to a cool place in the East Village called Kingston Hall, a busy and obviously well-loved bar with Colonial Jamaican themed decor and drinks where they played great music all night and we had tables reserved so we could all sit and toast the Birthday girl in comfort. And Sam almost started an argument with some people who refused to move from our reserved table. Snort.
