Just like the rest of us, I made a couple of New Years Resolutions as well. First and foremost, I’d like to lose about 15 pounds by March. And my second resolution is to find the best paella restaurant in New York City. Following the El Faro debacle, I feel the need to find the best paella spot in the city and I need your help to do so. I would love for the readers to suggest their favorite restaurants that specialize in paella. I don’t care where they are located, the price level or the ambiance; all I care about is level of deliciousness of their paella.
All of the suggested restaurants will be evaluated, reviewed and eventually a list of best paella restaurants will be compiled and presented. The picture above is courtesy of Spanish Recipe which has a recipe that you should check out.

First - Happy Valentine's Day! No matter what you're doing today, it should be full of fun and spent with those that give you that! Today I am spending my last night here in Vegas and will be having dinner at David + Burke's which is super exciting. I ate there earlier this week so I will have to try something new. I think that this will be a lot of fun - I can't wait to share a lot of the fun things that went on this week. I must say that with coming off of Fashion Week, meeting many of the good people of Coutorture and now being in Vegas with not only my best friends but friends that I know even better - this is definitely a great way to spend the week. That being said, I wanted to end the series of Valentine's beverages with one of my favorite drinks that I tried as soon as I got these recipes. I will also be having this tonight as I think of one of my new friends who is always down with giving me the recipes that I send out to you - so I am raising a virtual glass to her, my best friend who without him - the trip would not have been possible, my dancing friend and of course the amazing people that I got to know so much better during my trip here:
Cupid’s Cherry Jubilee
1 ounce Appleton VX Jamaican Rum
1.5 ounces Cherry Juice
4 ounces Korbel Champagne
Fresh coconut shreds
Cherry for garnish
Rim a wine glass with honey and roll on coconut shreds. Pour in Appleton, Cherry Juice and then fill with Korbel. Add cherry for garnish.
