The Cool House: Weekend Off

Weekend Off


We worked hard on the house the previous two weekends so we decided we deserved a couple of days free. Bonus: the weather was perfect - blue skies and temperatures in the 70s.


What better relief from renovation and maintenance stress than to spend Saturday looking at someone else's construction? Doug + Mike Starn on the Roof: Big BambĂș at the Metropolitan Museum of Art .


It would have been remiss to visit the Met without touring the world and indulging in a little time travel. So we let the parade go by and spent couple of hours wandering amazed through The World of Khubilai Khan, popped by Ringo Starr's Golden Drum, stopped at the Sachsen-Teschen Silver Service Vienna Circa 1780: An Imperial Silver Service Rediscovered to see how a napkin should be folded and ended the day at The Palace of Versailles.

Damn, that is some intense napkin folding! That should wow them at the Thanksgiving table.

Where do I get that giant, starched napkin, anyway? Not at Bed, Bath and Beyond.
