Hola, from sunny Florida:
After a fab flight on The Donald’s plane to Palm Beach, the Trump clan arrived Wednesday night at the historic and beautiful MaraLago Club for fun and sun…and a very yummy Turkey Day with the family. Palm Beach is in full swing for the season with parties every night, if that’s your thing…. Terry Allen Kramer’s feast and David and Julia Koch’s party Saturday night were the talk of the town.

On Friday, we had a great lunch at Bice, did some Christmas shopping and then took off for South Beach to have dinner with our pals Linda and Jerry Bruckheimer — he is completing the filming of “Bad Boys 2” in Miami. We had a feast at the world-famous Joe’s Stone Crab. The place was a mob scene serving the best comfort food in the world…. Oops, no bathing suit tomorrow!
Saturday, off to The Front Porch for brunch then to the Miami Heat game with the Bruckheimers, The Coach and Mrs. Riley…wish he was still coaching the Knicks! After a great win for Miami, we celebrated at Joia, which is a hot spot in South Beach…lots of beautiful people. Had the great pleasure of meeting Alex Rodriguez or “A Rod” in the baseball world. He and his wife of one month are great in every way. The Texas Rangers are lucky to have him. We need him in NY playing for the Mets or Yankees and told him so!
We are off to NY and if we have the energy, back to South Beach next weekend for the Basel Art Fair. Better take my vitamins to recover from the holiday weekend and sunburn.
P.S. The weather was perfect — 75 and sunny every day!
