Valentine’s Day Roundup

‘What are you doing for Valentine’s Day?’ can be a somewhat irritating question, but nevertheless one that many of us got this week. So, we figured we’d check in with a few of our favorite New York tastemakers and see what they had planned, in case you needed some ideas…

Erica Domesek, P.S. – I Made This: “This year I’m spending a snowy V-Day day with my best friends Stacy London and Jon Zeiders – who is in from Hong Kong. We’re having a fun and fancy dinner downtown. I made them valentines and bought them a funny book about friendship and a sexy box of matches. Since I’m snowed in today, I think I may bake too!”

I bought tickets to Matthew Barney’s “River of Fundament” film at Brooklyn Academy of Music. However, I haven’t told him it’s six hours long. I might be going by myself!”
