GAL APPROVED Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving Libations, Sushi Friday and Comfy Post-stuffing Footwear!By DIVAGALS | November 21, 2012 | Entertainment, Gal Approved
EAT. Yes we know it’s 24 hours til Turkey Day, but what will you do the day after that? How about a little bit of sushi? Bamboo 52, located in the heart of New York City’s Hell Kitchen, has revamped its space and its menu. During a special press preview, the DivaGals and America’s Next Top Model alum winner Whitney Thompson chowed down on Bamboo’s dazzling area of sushi and sashimi – delicious rolls with unexpected ingredients like bananas, kani and cream cheese and oh-so-fresh pieces of tuna and salmon – that came out in Bamboo’s signature “Samurai Boats” that feed several guests. Drinks are just as intriguing. Who wouldn’t try the Sake Sangria – especially when 2 for 1 Happy Hour lasts until 9 p.m. There are dining tables and a sushi bar at the front of the restaurant, but the DivaGals suggest enjoying that sake in Bamboo’s spacious back lounge seating (which spills out onto a very private patio dining area). We can’t wait to drop in one night for Karaoke Tuesdays or Ladies Night Wednesdays, or maybe both! Honestly, we already knew just how cool Bamboo 52 was – TV DivaGal “Gal Approved” it for her birthday celebration this past September! Bamboo 52 – 344 West 52 St., NYC.

DRINK. Stocking up the bar for Thanksgiving? The DivaGals suggest picking up a few bottles of Shaw Vineyard wine, which come in a variety of reds and whites, and includes the special Li Bella line, which is hand-picked from Shaw’s Seneca Lake vineyard. For your more adventurous guests, grab some Iceberg Vodka, which uses Newfoundland Iceberg water, for your sweet mixers, and some Comandon Cognac, the luxury cognac from the land of Cognac, France. Style Tip: Comandon’s cool container doubles a great clutch!
SLIP. After all the cooking and eating, you need to be comfortable. Why not slip into a pair of EMU Water Resistant booties? Since they’re anatomically correct with a tough rubber sole and soft inset, they’re sure to keep you comfy, especially if you feel the need to walk off what you just ate!
HAPPY THANKSGIVING FROM THE DIVAGALS!
