André Saraiva’s expectations for the weekend: “Lots of smoking and French kissing.” More here.

FIATs waiting for you at Sunset Beach
Summer is almost over, and I just can’t bear the thought. I really can’t. But lucky for me, I’ve been all over the place taking advantage of the warm weather. Los Angeles on Monday & Tuesdays. Miami on Thursday and Fridays. My beach house on the weekends. Don’t forget all the trips back and forth to Sunset Beach via my adorable little red seaplane, StndAIR. Sometimes, I even get jealous of myself. Life is too easy… BUT I wouldn’t be Stan if I didn’t make your life a little bit easier too.
What I’ve done for you, my little Stan D’Auto lovers is create a weekend package to end all packages (aside from my own, bien sur!)
For the next three Fridays, I have arranged for the 11am flight to Shelter Island be made available to you for only $350 one way. With all the money you save on the flight, you can buy me countless martinis when you arrive at Sunset Beach just in time for lunch. I’ve also accommodated for every single passenger to have their very own FIAT® 500 or FIAT® 500 Cabrio once they’ve finished dining!
Yes. You heard me correctly. That’s eight FIAT® for eight passengers. All yours for the weekend! Just make sure to get it back to Sunset Beach in one piece!
How much do you love me? I know. I know. Just stop gushing and email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call (855-786-3247) our Flight Concierge to book your flight.
We are not ones to condone graffiti, but we are definitely ones to support and nurture the creative arts. I came across this website called Happy Place via a good friend of mine who I like to call CD. It showcases people’s artistic interpretations of what public signage should be. Click the link and let hilarity ensue.
Another favorite of mine…
You’ll remember last week I told you about the new bikes we have at The Standard, New York, right? Well, the other I day, I took one of the bikes out for a gorgeous summer ride around the hotel and the neighborhood. It was so amazing, I decided to create an Instagram tour of all my favorite spots. With this, I present to you, Stan D’arde’s Bike Tour: Meatpacking.
It’s a little bit early to bring this to the table (pun TOTALLY intended), but I couldn’t hold in my excitement! The New York Wine & Food Festival is slowly descending upon us, and once again, The Standard, New York is the official hotel partner for all the culinary festivities.
The Feast will be doing their talks series in the Plaza, and the annual Oyster Bash will take place in the Biergarten. There will also be sausages, cornichons, beer, wine and all the huitlacoche you can eat! Okay. I’m not sure there will be the delicacy that is huitlacoche, but click on the link…it’s worth the read.
What I’m most over the moon about is Chef Dan’s dinner on Friday the 30th of September. Working side by side with Chef Marco Canora of Hearth and Terroir and Chef Bill Telepan of Telepan, Silverman has created a menu using absurdly fresh market vegetables integrated with Spanish flavors and consumed in the worlds of Italy and France. Does that mean he’s making a Beouf Bourguignon Paella Pasta??? Yeah. I’m not sure either. But what I DO know is that it is going to be mind blowing as is customary for Silverman.
The New York Wine & Food Festival takes place September 29 - October 2.
