A New York Moment
Can someone please explain to me how it is that I’ve not been to New York City for almost 20 years! I’ve set up countless dinners, events, lunches and media meetings for clients in that time, but I’ve never been. It’s not emberassing, but a considered a personal failure on my part.
I’ll be rectifying that over this weekend as I take off to NY for business. There will be little time for exploring, with the exception of making sure I get to Murray’s. However just getting myself, finally, back to that remarkable bastion of humanities peak almost seems enough for me.
Consider just the attention paid to wine in that metropolis:
There are those who can argue soundly that San Francisco is the better "Wine City". And they may be right. But when they make that argument they do so knowing they are comparing themselves to New York City, just as every comparison between cities must do when superlatives are being bandied about.
