11/7 News: Grape School

mollie-battenhouse-courtesy-maslow-6••• Maslow 6‘s fall seminars have begun. Up next: Monika Caha on Austrian wine and food (Nov. 11); Nicolas Palazzi, the owner of Nicolas Palazzi wines and a producer of artisanal Cognac, leads a tasting of Cognac and Armagnac (Nov. 18); and finally, the one I’m hoping to attend, Champagne with Maslow 6’s own Mollie Battenhouse, pictured left (Dec. 8). Each one is $100.

••• Wickham Boyle writes about her kids’-clothing drive for Hour Children in Downtown Express: “With the help of some locals—notably Koh’s Kids, Moomah, Tribeca Language, Pomme, Tribeca Girls, Washington Market School, the Church Street School and some downtown pediatricians—a division of Hour Children called BUNDLE was born and Mail Boxes Etc. became the chief distribution center. Fliers began to appear all over Tribeca saying, ‘Here’s where you come in. Donate your baby clothes, toys, and cribs, anything that your wonderful kids have out grown and you’re not saving. Bring it to 295 Greenwich Street or we will pick it up—just call 718-433-4725.”

••• T magazine food editor Christine Muhlke recommends Smith & Mills as a twentysomethings’ blind-date spot: “What could be prettier?” (I like Smith & Mills, and while I acknowledge that I’m not a twentysomething, I think it could be a risky choice if it’s crowded. I might’ve suggested Vino Vino or B Flat.)

••• 52 Laight has topped out, says Curbed: “When it’s complete there will be five full-floor condos and two duplex penthouses up top. Soon it will be covered in appropriate historic looking brick and limestone, with some added bits of faux-historical fiberglass.”
