Through the years, I’ve gone back and forth between scary bushy brows and over-plucked, permanently-surprised thin lines. Sometimes one of each. Nowadays I never touch my brows, because one of the things you learn as you grow older is to leave your eyebrows in the hands of professionals.
We were actually on our way back home, but in the taxi, we managed to talk each other into stopping by Boa, which is a new nightclub on the 33rd floor in W Dubai. The general admission line outside was long, so we tried our luck at the much shorter VIP/Guest List line. Luckily, it went smoothly with no questions asked, and a couple of minutes later, we were on our way up in the elevator, together with a guy who looked exactly like Drake. I think he must have heard that before, but he seemed happy to hear it again from us.
I thought I would be writing this post about Munich, because on paper, Munich and I were just meant to be, but to my great surprise, it was Zurich that managed to sweep me off my feet. Yes Zurich, you sort of ruined it for Munich (sorry Munich), because I couldn’t help comparing, and except for the price level, Zurich took home the victory in all categories.
Cirque le Soir is also located at Fairmont hotel, so after Cavalli Club, a nice doorman convinced us to come inside and have a look. It’s no secret that Cirque le Soir used to be the place to go if you didn’t make it into Cavalli Club, but with time, the London-grown club has become an entity of its own, and the quirky, highly unusual spot is now the first choice for many people.
Poul and I are moving to a new place, so this week we’ve been busy arranging movers and transferring water and electricity services. Suddenly it was Friday aka Big Brunch Day in Dubai, and nobody needed brunch more than we did. Though getting a last-minute table at the popular places can be quite a challenge, so I prepared myself to spend the morning cold calling restaurants and putting my name on waitlists, but I was lucky: Cocktail Kitchen, the first place I called, could squeeze in two more people in their non-smoking section.
There are 3 branches of the Swiss gourmet burger chain Holy Cow and one of them was just on the way to my hotel, so it was just a matter of time, before cravings and curiosity took over, and I went inside to see what it was all about.
It’s still NYC Restaurant week, and even though I didn’t plan to go to Beauty & Essex, I’m easy to convince. The restaurant/bar/lounge has long been one of my favorite cocktail places in Lower East Side. I’ve also had dinner there before, and the food is nice, so Tuesday night, I went for my second NYC Restaurant Week dinner.

Poul arrived in Denmark yesterday and we are now at my parents’ place in Jutland. Today we drove to the beach with my sister and my mom and went for a short walk along the coastline. In the summertime, the beach is always packed with people, but at this time of the year, we were the only ones there. The beach is really conveniently located right at the end of one of the major streets in Fredericia and when I was in high school this was the place to be, when the sun was shining.
