Friends in New York

Heather was kind enough to invite me to a cooking store opening on Tuesday—fabulous for a number of reasons:
1.I felt “in the know” to be attending an opening party
2.For a girl who has received Martha Stewart magazine since the age of 16, a cooking store opening is right up my alley!
3.Heather is a blast (and single in case any hot and available guys are reading this post!)

Heather’s rules for parties:
1.Stay for approximately 1 hour unless it sucks (we stayed well over an hour)
2.Stalk the appetizer servers like deer in the woods—Heather did this with exacting precision as if she has radar for asparagus risotto balls and gruyere puffs.
3.Make friends with the appetizer servers, ask them about the appetizers and smile so they’ll come back with more.
4.Don’t leave without a gift bag--oh the goodie bag…so exciting! We got everything from knives and graters to tea towels and lime juicers.

It was an evening of wine, appetizers and cupcakes—BRILLIANT!

On top of it all, I am in love with everything at Broadway Panhandler…if only they had everything in mini size for my kitchen! Regardless, I’ll be back to do some damage with my credit card.

as a fellow cook I'm curious, what's the new kitchen store that opened? It's not Broadway Panhandler is it? They re-opened in their new locations months and months ago.

Just reread the posting, guess it's not so clear...yes I am talking about Broadway Panhandler. You are correct that it moved a couple of months ago, but for some reason the media party was just on Tuesday.
Isn't the store great!? It even sells spaetzle makers.
I've heard there is a great cooking store on Atlantic Ave. Any truth to that?
