Dinner Party

My mom's cousin Brigid and her husband Winfred threw a dinner party in our honor last weekend in their cozy, quirky, seemingly styled by Wes Anderson apartment that bumps up against the Chelsea Hotel.
The apartment is filled with artifacts from their extensive travels and loads of books, mirrors, and artwork. And it has a fireplace!! Brigid served Coq au Vin and lots of champagne.
And for dessert, a chocolate cake...in the shape of a wolf's head, complete with bloody fangs. It was delicious. We didn't ask questions. The perfect end to a lovely evening.
