Tonight was the Phoenix Club’s Casino Night party Downtown.  I joined Bentley and Jenny Pembroke, Matthew and Courtney Wages, and Wilson and Allison Pace for dinner at Slices in Midtown.  The food was good.  As much as Lale and I wanted to join our friends for the party, we decided we were too tired and would wait until next year.  Besides, we had all the entertainment we wanted with Shattuck.  He smiled at me after I changed him this evening.
