THE AGE OF AQUARIUS AND ALL THAT JAZZ
New York is full of the most wonderful small museums. One of these days I will post a list of my favorites.
One of the tops on that list is the The Museum of Art and Design aka MAD. They always have something interesting going on. And like many of the small museums they have a terrific restaurant as well.
So, last Saturday when I wanted to catch up with my friend Michele I said, meet me at MAD. Well, actually I booked a table at their 9th floor restaurant Robert and sent her the Open Table confirmation.
Robert is on the top floor and looks over Central Park. Now that I don’t wake up every day and look over the park I am happy to pay to do so. Robert is such a nice spot you don’t even have to visit the museum when you are done. But you should.
We stopped and saw the counter couture show. Which to quote them is “handmade fashion in an American counter culture.” It was all from the 60’s and 70’s. It was not a big splashy show but it time machined you right back to the 60’s and 70’s. Michele and I kept commenting on how many things were exactly like what we wore when we were really young!
It all felt kind of appropriate as we are in a time of a rapidly growing counter culture.
