On the train to Philadelphia to visit one of my two very best friends in the world and my dear sister-in-law, and to celebrate the opening of my friend Joey Campanaro's new restaurant there, The Village Belle. (You might know him from the Little Owl in the West Village.) It's going to be a great night, but right now I feel a little like I'm in a Fellini film. The conductor has a long monk beard and looks just like my friend Andrew, the lady next to me has been wearing giant Gucci sunglasses the whole time and whispering while the fall foliage we glide through is spectacular.We're here!

Fun with Kathie Lee and Hoda

Discussing this evening's premiere of "Top Chef: Just Desserts" this morning on the Today show went really well, considering there was the potential for the tipple-loving hosts to skip right to the bourbon. Luckily, we talked about everything we were supposed to, then went straight to the bourbon (which was the Bourbon St. Milkshake from Brooklyn Bowl).Please to enjoy, sweet-toothed tigers!
