You never know where the developer society types may pop up, but it is a sure bet they know where to wine and dine. David Aisenstat was spotted breaking away from Nordstrom frenzied shoppers for the finest handcrafted cocktails at theHawksworth Cocktail Bar. Where the bartender imports ice from glaciers that melted in a good year. Try the Jack Rose, its applejack brandy and pomegranate syrup are described as “a warm hug … for your liver.” The Hawksworth bartender’s knowledge is so encyclopedic, that he can sell you the merits of Japanese single malt scotches, while recalculating the points spread on the Sunday Miami Dolphin’s game.
Speaking of the Dolphins, Real Estate Developer Icon turned Miami Dolphins owner, Stephen Ross, was at the Shangri La in Toronto to talk to Schulich School of Business Alumni. He is proposing an art project in his Hudson Yards Manhattan development that will rival the Statue of Liberty. No need to put the proposed $250M art project in your proforma to calculate the return, however, it is safe to say Manhattan will have a new sculpture you can’t capture with just a selfie stick.
Enjoy your weekend.
