I'd made an assignation with a friend from the UK, just by chance we were in New York at the same time. MOMA was the venue and Felix and I set out that morning with a few jobs to do before meeting Jenny. One of them was getting his iPad screen fixed as it was completely smashed in one corner. I wish I'd taken a pic now as it didn't take a huge leap of the imagination to see it hanging in a gallery, new genre - iPad grunge.

After three hours we were just in time before closing to get a mug of Moroccan mint tea in the cafe before heading off to eat in Vynl, a quirky eatery on 9th Avenue at 51st. The most interesting part about this experience for me was the loos. Four different unisex loos, each named after different music icons like Dolly (Parton) and Elvis, with their music playing inside and one wall covered in a glittering glass mosaic portrait. Have to say I didn't go in the other two but was told they were equally splendid.

No reservations though when I set eyes on a shawl-collared Missoni patterned jacket which was in the sale reduced from $198 - $67 - you can always find space for a sweater! Arlo is finding the bag it came in great for the odd nap...
