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

Girls Night Out: (from left) Julie, Alexandra, me and Crystal

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 , 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.

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 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.

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 —

“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.

With excitement about SATC2 continuing to build, there couldn’t be a better time to check out the fabulous “Sex and the City” Hotspots tour. And I’m excited to report that On Location Tours is offering a 10% discount for Single Gal In The City readers on both SATC and “Gossip Girl” tour tickets!

On Carrie’s Stoop: (from right) Me, my dear friend Steve and his mom took this photo during the SATC Hotspots tour

I had the pleasure of doing the three-hour SATC tour a few years back. Led by actresses and stand-up comediennes who know the show inside and out, it covers more than 40 locations from the movie and the TV show — including the bakery where Carrie and Miranda ate cupcakes, the shop where Charlotte bought her “Rabbit,” and the trendy Meatpacking District. The last stop – a round of cosmos at the bar owned by Aidan and Steve.

This week, SATC2 filmed on Fifth Avenue, near the Hotspots tour’s departure point

The tour departs at 11am and 3pm daily in front of Pulitzer Fountain on Fifth Avenue. On Location Tours has also launched “Sex and the City” girlfriend getaways and bachelorette packages that include the tour of SATC Hotspots by limousine, dinner at a location used in the show, and admission to one of the nightclubs where scenes from the show were filmed.

To book your tickets for SATC Hotspots or the “Gossip Girl” tour, click and enter discount code SINGLEGAL to receive a 10% discount.

Stay tuned for more SGITC perks…and the chance to win a pair of free SATC tour tickets!
