Halloween is coming early to Amsterdam! At least for this girl it is. Will be checking out Nightmare on Rozengracht this Friday and I’m sooooo excited.

Nightmare on Rozengracht is a pop-up bar and Halloween Spookhuis from 18 October to 2 November. From their site:
More than a Spookhuis and scarier than a show, Nightmare on the Rozengracht is a journey into terror and unique in Amsterdam. It takes about 35 minutes plus waiting/drinking time in Bar117. There is no cover to enter the bar. Snacks and food by Hotmamahot. Courage Bar by Jägermeister.

This Friday, I’ll be attending as a Yelp elite there but there may still be slots left through the Discover Amsterdam Together meetup. Check out the event details here and sign up!

Will post pics after the event including my costume!

“A colorful new ploy to turn Chinese women into alcoholics.” Those are the Atlantic’s words, not mine. Not sure how I feel about banana flavored beer but it’s Hello Kitty – how can I resist? Other flavors include:
peach, lemon-lime and passion fruit.

Genius! My fave:
”The difference between the right word and the almost right word is the difference between lightning and a lightning bug.”

Tyra as Cara

Adding this photo exhibition by Udo Spreitzenbarth to my itinerary when I visit NYC. I’m not a big Tyra fan – never really mastered smizing – but I do appreciate the work of hair and makeup artists and the work of hairstylist Sher Rae Tucker and makeup artist Valente Frazier here is killer. If you glance really quickly, Tyra does look like Cara Delevingne. And supposedly the photos in this exhibit were not retouched!

The exhibit is at Jack Studios, 610 W. 26th Street, 6th Floor until November 9.

POSTCARDS FROM THE EDGE - VISUAL AIDS BENEFIT

Attention art lovers and budding collectors, over 1300 anonymously-displayed postcard-size masterpieces by established and emerging artists will be on sale this weekend for only $85 each. One lucky buyer could be a new owner of an original Jeff Koons! You won’t know who designed the postcard until after purchase but it is for a worthwhile cause and relatively affordable investment for a piece of art.

For details, including a listing of all the featured artists, go to:
