The close of the year means something different for everyone.  For some, it is simply a champagne and caviar celebration of what is to come.  For others, it is a quiet dinner at home with the hope of staying up to see a very expensive ball drop from a very expensive stick in the middle of a very expensive city.  And then there’s the crowd that just plain old skips the whole thing and has to void the first 15 checks they write in the new year because they scribbled last year’s date (a cry of oh no!–or something worse– in the middle of it).  Such is life, why not ring in the new year with a little bit of glitz.  For Jim and I, we decided to ring in the new year with ourselves.

We thought it best and fitting to take Lucca to the Union Square Market, and maybe for a cider donut.  Smiles were the special of the day.

We thought long and hard about what matters most to us, in general and for the new year.  Okay, we love cheese. But there’s more…

there’s pure happiness whether you are laughing out loud or finding something red,




people and things to remember,




pure love when you’re really too tired to stand up,

and amazing New Years’ oysters when you know you are having the last of the season!

It’s been quite a year! We are looking forward to many new adventures in food, wine and play.
