The Beretta Store in the Upper West Side
Brilliant, even though I wasn’t there with you. I felt that I was, or wish I could have been 😍
pitch perfect and everything else....wanted to sort thru scores of substacks tossing around in email inbox like so many drifting seagulls to see if you aren't actually ALSO the one who wrote about Lilly Pulitzer as the edge and smarts are similar in tone....oh well i may never know but its alllll good!
Love the artwork.
You just know the first word in "zebra-hide ottoman" rhymes with "Debra." (And they'd pronounce Kenya "Keen-ya.") Not gonna lie though: bet I'd love one of those $75 magnifying glasses.
Cintra, I’m giving “enviable shooting” a grade of 100.
Also, trying to remember when in 2008 it was when Lehman Bros and the rest of Wall St. imploded. In the fall? Just wondering how much longer that Beretta store lasted…..
I just know they had three or four stuffed royal Corgis in a laser alarm-protected basement but ED wasn’t about to let you in on that showcase without an Illuminati password. Smashing piece from the vaults, Wilson. I could totally imagine you walking out of there dressed (and girded) like Meryl Streep’s Baroness Blixen character in ‘Out of Africa,’ ready to bullwhip a charging lion. Or a Nello maitre’d. (Didja see any Teddy Roosevelt merch?)
