Me, myself and eye


Samsung’s only concept store in NYC is located in the Meatpacking District. More concept than store, since nothing there is for sale (except coffee and treats), a kind of event space where one can get first hand info on Samsung’s latest developments and equipment and there is always an interesting happening, like our selfies being taken by multiple Galaxy S8’s and then projected on a giant screen as prismatic honeycombs.

Three Jerks and A Lazy Lady

A little game I like to play in big supermarkets or delis – look for products with funny names and make up silly stories like this:

Miranda washed in Absinthe, her perfume subdued by the exquisite fragrance of a 300 day Gorgonzola, a perfume so intoxicating, so maddening, it was enough to turn the Three Jerks of the House of Croxetti against their once beloved cousins of the House of Corzetti. The epic fight that followed brought only grief; it was left upon poor little Jersey Girl to comfort the grieving Lazy Lady of Vermont, offspring of a secret union between the two Houses. To aid her in this unpleasant and troublesome task, she summoned the Honorable Sweet Lady Apple, who promptly came to the rescue making a hasty – but grand – entrance surrounded by a full basketload of Red Globe Grapes.

The cheese section in Eataly is rife with such potential, but I usually end up leaving with some good old trusted Compté or Swiss Gruyère. And I like my Absinthe with a sugar block on the side please, no cheese.
