Going to the Dogs...and the Asprey/Baccarat Sale
Back to the Blog... | Post Feedback | Author Bio | Printer-Friendly

O.K., two things you must do tomorrow (Tuesday, Feb. 12): First go to the dogs, i.e., the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show at Madison Square Garden. (We are, of course, partial to the Golden Retrievers and will be there at 9 a.m. for the judging of the Goldens.)  And, if you cannot get to the Garden, at least watch the show on TV tomorrow night (and tonight, too) to see the winners of the seven group categories. Then hop across the street (after all, you are in the neighborhood), to Soiffer Haskin (317 West 33rd Street, just west of 8th Avenue) to the Asprey/Baccarat sale. We suppose, in one form or another, going there is like going to the dogs, too, or at least going to hell in a hand basket fast...because we always find things to buy at that sale.

Tomorrow (Tuesday) is the last day, so we're hoping the already 75% off will be even sweeter.  It's the best time in the world to stock up on so many things we don't need, but want.  True, the sale started Saturday, and runs until tomorrow, so some things will be gone, but there will, undoubtedly, be good deals on what is there.  Today until 6:30 and tomorrow from 9 a.m to 5 p.m.  As usual, credit cards only; no strollers, no children under 12.

Here's hoping we all come back with a bundle of good stuff to bark about!
