Greetings chums,

Last night, while many were still chewing over the shambolic performance of Britney Spears at the VMAs, I had the joy of being in the same room as a real star who was chewing his way through a plate of ravioli. Tony “I Ieft my heart in San Francisco” Bennett enjoyed dinner last night at Piazza Pellegrini in North Beach. His friend of more than 40 years Gino Biradelli, his lovely wife Alexis and a few other pals dined with him.

So Much Sex, So Little Time

I’ve been known to read more about sex than to actually have it, but that’s a blog for another time. Back to the stuff I’ve been reading. … Recent news includes: 

“Seniors are still having sex well into their 70s, 80s and 90s.” 

“Half of all teens have had oral sex.” 

“Married people have more sex than their single counterparts.”

My recent favorite is: “When men and women were asked to choose one thing they couldn't live without—sex, chocolate or alcohol, men said sex was five times more important than chocolate, with alcohol a close second.”

Cartier's Grand Re-Opening

Cartier's flagship boutique celebrated the grand re-opening of its new 6,000-foot space, designed by French architect Bruno Moinard, which is more than double the size of its original 23-year-old Union Square location. Celebrities and socialites such as Molly Sims, Vanessa Getty and Tatianna Sorokko graced the red carpet, and Mayor Gavin Newsom even proclaimed Sept. 6 as "Cartier Love Day" to commemorate the opening.
