Last week, FOJ (Friend of Jewel) Alice invited me to a Spring Fling Luncheon. It was too much fun! The lunch was to benefit the Humane Society of Greater Miami and was held at the fabulous La Goulue Restaurant at Bal Harbour Shops. Pets were invited as well! The Humane Society’s Development Diva, Laurie Hoffman, looked absolutely smashing and talked about the good works that they continue to do, with the community’s support.
In addition to Alice, I sat with the lovely Bunny Bastian (Remember here from this and this?). I was lucky to also be seated right next to new FOJ, Barbara De Vries, who designs lovely fashion pieces. You will DEFINITELY read more about her in the next couple of weeks. Also, imagine my surprise when my old friend, PR diva Shari Lynn Rothstein of SLK Creative showed up, with her cute pooch! We worked together years ago and it’s always fun to see her and catch up.
I had the best “chopped chicken salad,” with grilled chicken, red peppers, celery root, carrots, and bleu cheese. Forgive me for devouring it before taking a picture. I finished up with raspberry sorbet. It was yummy.
Of course, EVERY visit nowadays to Bal Harbour makes me reminisce about Santa Maria Novella, but I simply didn’t have time to stop there that day. I will get back there soon though.
