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