Smell like you have the phone # to Milk & Honey

It’s good to have friends with connections, like Sonya Moore of Standards and Pours, who can get into any bar in the city. Over the weekend we went to Milk & Honey, where I was forbidden from breaking out the camera in the bar or publishing the ultra-exclusive secret phone number. (Sorry, but if I don’t keep Sonya happy she won’t hook me up with sazerac cupcakes.)

The dark bar was off-limits to the Ambience Chaser camera, but no one was there to stop me from snapping pictures in the ladies’ room. Honestly, it wasn’t so different from the bathroom in my apartment, except I don’t have a list of rules like “no starf*cking” posted in mine. At least, not since college.

Note the posh soap and lotion:

It’s Kiehl’s Deluxe Hand & Body Lotion with Aloe Vera & Oatmeal and Bath and Shower Liquid Body Cleanser in Grapefruit, available on Kiehl’s website in 16.9 oz. bottles for $30.50 and $25.00, respectively.

Do with that information what you will. Maybe you could wash your hands with it, then go to Milk and Honey and wave them at the hostess as proof that you’ve really been in the bar all night and just stepped out to hit the ATM so she’ll let you “back” in.

Ha, you flatter me. I only wish I was that connected. I just try to keep a low profile so that I accidentally sneak up on things is all.

I remember the first time I went to M&H I thought, "Man, the drinks are good, but did you see the bathroom? They got Kiehl's up in that piece. And towels!" Gotta keep the ol' drinking hand supple and pliant, ya know?
