Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln. Pictured in upper-left is Hallandale Beach's iconic beachball-colored Water Tower on State Road A1A; September 2008 photo by me, South Beach Hoosier. © 2013 Hallandale Beach Blog, All Rights Reserved.

Newest incarnation of 'When Fashion Meets Finance' now offers patina of high-mindedness -former wannabe-philanderers are now do-gooder philanthropists
New York Times Dealbook video: When Fashion Meets Finance.
Reported by Mac William Bishop, May 6, 2011.
Groovy! Newest incarnation of Fashion meets Finance now offers patina of high-mindedness -former wannabe-philanderers are now do-gooder philanthropists.
Conspicuous consumption has now morphed into charity work.
Now THAT'S how you successfully re-boot!
NOT that this would ever work in Miami!
This video reminds me a lot of the low-seat bar area at the W Hotel in San Francisco, circa 2000. There were, literally, SO many attractive women crammed into the place that it was actually disconcerting, but not for me and my former housemate from Arlington County, who was now living out there, but for the new women arriving into the area, as they took one look around at how crowded it was with over-the-top beauty and just fled, perhaps in terror.
Jamie and I just watched in disbelieving amazement!
In these new photos from the W website, it doesn't look the same as it did, which is a real pity:
In actuality, this event took place at the Bar Basque at 29th Street & 6th Avenue in Chelsea

This story made me think of... ABBA's "If It Wasn't For The Nights"
