New York is a funny place. When I first moved here five years ago, I had a hard time landing a steady writing job despite having five years of newspaper experience. Fast-forward and, following a stint as a nightlife editor, I know a lot more people in both the media and liquor industries than I ever could have imagined.
I just attended the 2-year anniversary of Cain at the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas, a balmy, seductive affair that included lots of time in the pool and ocean and a few too many rum drinks. I never would have expected to be mingling in a cabana with some of NYC nightlife's most influential people, but that is just the sort of crazy opportunity that comes with city life. Apparently, Carmen Electra, Miss USA, and Miss Universe were in attendance, but I was snorkeling while they made their appearance—and frankly, I didn't care. If you ever get the chance to travel to Atlantis, be sure to check out Cain at the Cove—they have the best pina coladas.
