So my Sundance experience this year was a bust as I received the gift of bronchitis quite early on in the festival and did not get the pleasure of attending much past my bed and a House Wives of Atlanta marathon on TV. This makes me short on stories this year guys. I had to live thru friends which is strange to be there, but not BE there. Anyways, the one story I do have is about the trip home. I, by some miracle, got to fly first class from New York to Milan. Have you ever flown first/business class international? (singing) It's AWESOME!!!!!!
I had my own seat, let's call it a Lazy Boy, with my own interactive TV, reading light, dining table, and pillow and down comforter. I was greeted with a glass of champagne and a set of noise cancelling headphones. As I settled into my seat I read over the menu. Yes a menu, with wine choices and dessert options!
The food was actually good. In the spirit of sharing my experience, here is what I had.
Pumpkin soup, salmon and artichokes, and mixed green salad with pecans and roasted yellow peppers. Whole wheat bread.
Surf and turf, steak and shrimp with a glaze, creamy lemon risotto and sugar snap peas. Pinot Noir.
Cheesecake and port wine.
Not bad. In fact I was so full from dinner that a couple of hours later when they offered breakfast, I had to refuse. Instead I settled for watching more movies using my personal remote control.
So if you ever get the chance to go somewhere in first class, treat yourself just once. If you are like me instead of playing it cool like it happens all the time, you'll end up taking pictures of everything and telling your friends about it for years to come....or should I say blogging about it.
The only down side is that I am ruined for life. I can never go back to flying coach again. Of course I will but might have the nagging feeling that there has been a mistake.....
