Padma Laksmi Gets Down with Ice Skating, Jenga, Comfort Food and Bubbly
Ice skating at The Standard High Line ice rink?! Yes please! Last night brought a plethora of NYC notables, including Padma Laksmi, Peter Som, and Helen Lee Schifter, for a celebration that included wintry bites and elegantly sparkling flutes of Veuve Clicquot (the Yellow Label naturally).
Who could resist snacking on comfort food including yummies like truffle fries, mini grilled cheese sandwiches, tomato soup shooters and cheese fondue? Certainly not us! We noshed on bites. Guzzled loads of bubbly and we watched (from the sidelines of course) as Laskmi took to the rink. For those daring folks who were inclined to skate, lessons were offered. Norfolk Curling Club offered lessons and guided skaters in laps around the rink. For those who preferred the comfort of heat, inside the hotel bar, Veuve Clicquot posted a life-size version of Jenga. Naturally, that’s where we were, bubbly in hand.
