If I were Free Wednesday Night...

I would go to

at Laura Lobdell's Jewelry Shop


In time for Mother’s Day, artisanal jewelry designer Laura Lobdell and restaurant bobo are remembering the Macaroni Necklaces we made for Mom with a Macaroni Necklace Making Party and special Macaroni Menu on Wednesday, May 4, 2011, 6:00 to 8:30 at bobo, 181 West 10 Street at Seventh Avenue South.

Just like what we made for Mom back in the day, as in kindergarten, but with cocktails, guests will get to paint and string macaroni made of genuine 100% durum wheat semolina pasta on yarn to make jewelry with the “instruction” of jewelry designer Laura Lobdell. Crafters will each make their own version of Laura’s signature sterling silver Macaroni Collection (which includes her “Double Mac Necklace” and “Macaroni Cocktail Ring”).

Macaroni Crafters will receive individual “Macaroni Kits” courtesy of Laura Lobdell Jewelry, next door to bobo at 183 1/8 West 10th Street, from 6:00 to 6:45. Then at bobo, guests will get to make their macaroni jewelry.

The crafting is courtesy of Laura Lobdell Jewelry. A welcome glass of Secco will be offered thanks to the generosity of Barterhouse, Inc. Guests pay for food and beverages ordered.

Please reserve your place at Macaroni Madness, by RSVP to or 646.272.8483.


Macaroni will be celebrated with special themed snack dishes created for the occasion by bobo chef Patrick Connolly. “Classic Mac” with Gruyere and Ham, “Green Mac” featuring seasonal ramps, not quite Kraft, and “Crunchy Mac” dried and fried have been added to the menu especially for this event.
Macaroni Madness makes May marvelous.

While I was writing this post, I sent K an email, :"Pretty FI-ERCE, huh?", and her brilliant response, "abso f'in lutely". Well said, my friend!

Here is a newsflash:

Whether or not you received an invitation to what promises to be a spectacle of a frenzied sort, you don't need to feel left out. You can use this wedding kit in the comfort and privacy of your own home or, neither, at your office.

What caught my attention was the tattoo. For the last few months, I have been contemplating the acquisition of a tiny tattoo. Where should it go and what to get have been heavy on my mind. Ankle, wrist, hip? Crossed hockey sticks, a goal and puck, snake, a pair of Manolo Blahniks? No decision, no tattoo.

Thanks Anya Hindmarch for letting me move on.
