A few weeks ago, I went to East of Eighth Restaurant & Bar—a contemporary bistro in Chelsea. I have a few haunts in the area, but surprisingly had never heard of this particular establishment. I went with a friend who used to work a few doors down, and, is by self-acknowledgment, “a regular.”
Last week, I found myself in major need of a haircut. It was Friday when I made this decision and called my go-to salon, Wellington Hair Spa, to make an appointment for Saturday. Unfortunately, my lovely stylist Kay was off this past weekend, but I was able to book an appointment with the owner, Patrick Wellington.
