The Colony Club

The Colony Club

I am officially on the countdown until our trip to NYC. A couple of my girlfriends and I are driving down to "the city" (as the New Yorkers call it, as though there is only one THE city) to watch a broadway show and do some window shopping (yes, window only unfortunately). I can hardly wait. I've got the mix almost completed for the car-ride down, including Jay Z Empire State Building and Lady Gaga.

But before I go, I have to share this email that I received from my dear friend who is from "the city" and who is going with us. Her mother is a member of the city's most exclusive and prestigious private women's social club, the Colony Club, which is where we are going to stay. For all you Gossip Girl fans, it is the Club Blair Woldorff tried to join. After googling this Club, since I had no idea what or where it was, I realized that this puts the Junior League to shame. It's so exclusive, it doesn't even have a website or any information about it, much less any info on how to join.

In her email to us she warned us that there might be a lot of ladies with "helmet heads" and

"OHHH, my mom reminded me – unfortunately no jeans unless we are sprinting out to dinner."

Hmmm....do they not know that my jeans are quite possibly...okay undoubtedly my nicest piece of clothing in my wardrobe?

Back to the drawing board for weekend attire.


  1. Oh, I'm so excited for you to see Wicked! We saw it here in G'ville and LOVED it! My kids can sing most of the soundtrack now, since we play it so often. Enjoy your trip!

  2. Beth told me that you loved it, I was so glad to hear that because I vaguely remember from somewhere hearing that it was good but that was it. I am frantically trying to finish the book before we go and I've been listening to the soundtrack in the car despite Oliver asking me to turn it off (parts of it sound a little scary). I'll tell what I think!
