I don’t speak Italian but I love the idea of dining out at an authentic Italian restaurant. #Jetsetdreams
Travel spot, maybe!?
The fireplace where Jay-Z sat at Top of The Standard NYC. Best seat in the house.
A while back, I was in NYC on business and stopped by The Standard Hotel’s restaurant/lounge, “Top of the Standard” for a little pleasure. Little did I know that the NYC hot spot, formerly known as The Boom Boom Room, would become the center of one of the biggest pop culture scandals–Cartergate. I sat by the same fireplace as Mr. Carter and rode the same elevators where he caught a beat down from his sister-in-law. It occurred to me, that you might be interested to see the beautiful place where something so ugly went down.
I just watched the dedication online and I was deeply inspired by the President’s words.
Obama is speaking at the dedication in New York for the National September 11 Memorial Museum. He says this museum tells the story of 9/11 so that future generations will never forget.
Obama says it’s a moment to reflect on the true spirit of 9/11 and enshrine it forever in the nation’s heart. He says that spirit encompasses love, compassion and sacrifice.
Obama is praising the men and women who helped save lives in the attack, including those who gave their lives in the effort.
He says the deceased live on in us and in their friends and families.
