Champagne, Twitter, and the New Year


A twitterati I follow gave me some very sage advice last week--- advice I plan to follow in the new year. He said that one should never pass a Four Seasons hotel in any city for any reason without stopping in to have a glass of champagne. It reminded me of a line in "The Prisoner of Zenda" that delightful late 19th-century novel of love and pretense, in which the reader is exhorted never to pass through Paris without spending 24 hours there, and drinking champagne.


Since I have never passed through Paris, and have no plans to do so in 2010, I will instead embrace the travel advice from the ether. I hereby resolve to stop in at any Four Seasons hotel I see (or any other swanky hotel that strikes my fancy) and drink a champagne toast to whoever is on my mind.


So if you feel waves of good wishes coming your way, it just might be me, sitting at a hotel and drinking to your health. Happy New Year and best wishes to you and yours.

What a great idea. No Four Seasons hotels in this little burg, but it sounds like an entirely lovely idea for sib trips.

no four seasons here either, so I'm not in danger of becoming a champagne floozy. but we have a NYC trip planned soon, do we not?

I pass by the Atlanta Four Seasons twice a day, to and from work, so that could become a problem. But how convenient!
