Sex And The City 2 Girls Night Out

May 31st, 2010 — 11:01am

Thursday, I enjoyed a girls night out celebrating the premiere of “Sex And The City 2.”

My cousin Alexandra and friends Julie and Crystal joined me at Café Ronda on NYC’s Upper West Side. Over cocktails and tapas, we talked about the journey of moving on from toxic relationships and, of course, our excitement about SATC 2.

As we settled into the crowded theater at Sony’s Lincoln Square cinema, I happily applauded with everyone else during the first glimpse of Carrie Bradshaw and Co. The fab four and their leading men are still irresistibly stylish and they still light up the screen with their enduring chemistry. Unfortunately, though, the movie is like a weak cosmo — after a quick taste, you find out it’s not as good as it looks.

Lavish clothes and a jaunt to the Middle East can’t cover up the fact that SATC 2’s plot is thin and poorly written. Like fellow SATC fan and writer Carrie Seim, I really wanted to love the sequel. There were definitely some memorable moments — Stanford and Anthony’s very gay wedding, Carrie’s unexpected reunion with Aidan, Charlotte and Miranda’s heartfelt conversation about motherhood — but not enough to justify SATC 2’s two hour-plus running time.

Afterward, joined by galpal Sara, we all enjoyed post-movie drinks at a nearby wine bar. I couldn’t help thinking that, disappointing or not, SATC 2 had accomplished what the first movie did — by creating another opportunity to make a night of it with some of my favorite ladies.

SATC Hotspots Tour: Take Two

May 27th, 2010 — 11:40am

Last night, I celebrated today’s opening of “Sex And The City 2” by climbing aboard On Location Tours SATC Hotspots Tour (see blog sidebar link for Single Gal In The City reader discount).

All Aboard: On Location Tours’ Meagan and me

The three-hour journey, now includes locations from both the series and the movies, kicks off at Pulitzer Fountain in front of The Plaza. Among the additions since I last did it in 2006 — Buddakan, site of Carrie and Big’s rehearsal dinner, and jeweler Alexis Bittar, who co-designed baubles with Patricia Field featured in SATC 2.

As we made our way through Midtown, the West Village and SoHo, I was excited to find myself sitting next to freelance writer Carrie Seim.

Carrie interviewed me in March by email for her New York Post story about leaving New York to find love. A part-time LA resident, she told me she has no problem meeting men when she visits the Big Apple. There really is something about changing your zip code to spice up your love life.

Much to my great delight, Carrie introduced me to dating expert and author Julie Spira. We talked about the ups and downs of long-distance relationships, and about Andrea Syrtash’s smart new book, He’s Just Not Your Type (And That’s A Good Thing).

Also joining in the fun, wedding gown designer Matthew Christopher. He had us laughing when he said a few Norweigan tourists complained that the tour wasn’t what she had expected.

“I told her, ‘Honey, don’t build it up, just let it happen.’ ”

Good advice when it comes to dating too.

An Action-Packed Week

October 16th, 2009 — 9:30pm

One of my favorite parts about life in New York is the virtually endless array of diversions available as soon as you walk out the door. This week was no exception.

From chatting up five men at the Anti-Defamation League’s fabulous Imagine Gala in Union Square to lunch with SingleEdition.com founder Sherri Langburt, I’ve done some fun hobnobbing over the last few days – including B-list celeb spotting at the red carpet premiere for “New York I Love You.”

Speaking of red carpet scenes, you can catch “Sex And The City 2” filming one tonight at NYC’s classic Ziegfeld Theater from 7pm on. I’ll be skipping the on-camera action this time because I’m hosting a little singles soiree at my place.

Watch this space for more about my eventful week. And if you’re interested in attending next week’s StyleFixx shopping party, I’ve got 9 free VIP tickets left! Email me at SingleGalInTheCity@gmail.com for info.

SATC2 At The Empire Hotel

October 12th, 2009 — 8:08pm

After several days of shooting in studio, Sex And The City 2 was back on the streets of NYC today.

SATC2 took over the Empire Hotel on 63rd and Broadway. I saw some glammed up extras emerging from the hotel and caught a fleeting glimpse of Kim Cattrall. The ageless Samantha Jones looked fit and fabulous in slim fitting dark jeans, a beige jacket and matching boots.

Meanwhile, Sarah Jessica Parker delighted fans when she emerged from her trailer with smiles and a friendly wave.

SJP wowed the small crowd in front of her trailer

SJP even stopped briefly to wish one onlooker a happy birthday before returning to the set.

And in the best-kept-secret department, it seems there is more than just one sequel in the works. SATC2 extra Cayte Grieve told Blackbook magazine

“There will be a Sex and the City 3. They are currently filming both SATC 2 and SATC 3, as told to me by a few other extras who overheard it from crew members.”

Looks like we’ll be enjoying the adventures of Carrie Bradshaw & Co. for years to come.

Single Gal Meets Neal B In NYC

October 5th, 2009 — 10:56pm

Over the weekend, I had the pleasure of meeting fellow blogger and “Sex And The City” diehard fan Neal Bennington.

Bloggers and SATC Fans Unite: Neal and me in Central Park

Neal has attracted a big following for his fabulous photos and videos from the set of “Sex And The City 2.” He’s been profiled in the New York Daily News and recently appeared on “The Wendy Williams Show.”

We caught up at Lincoln Square on NYC’s Upper West Side, where we talked about the crazy crowds that SATC 2 is generating — and our shared goal to score invites to the movie’s premiere next spring. Neal also interviewed me on-camera for his new blog, Neal B In NYC.

You can watch the video here or head on over to Neal’s blog to see his complete post about SGITC. His site is a fun read covering everything from celebrity dish and what’s happening in NYC to, of course, the latest about SATC 2. He’s definitely a rising star in the blogosphere.

Coming up…an appearance on “The Dr. Oz Show” and up close and personal with “The View” co-host Sherri Shepherd.
