It’s that time of year. Once again, those endlessly creative folks at Eleven Madison Park, NoMad and the soon-to-be open Made Nice have put together a fabulous holiday gift.
It arrived on our NJ doorstep on December 3rd. As you can see, there were 24 boxes. Since the instructions said we should open a box each day until the eve of the 24th (which happened to be both the first night of Chanukah and Christmas Eve) and it was now the 3rd, we immediately opened boxes 1, 2, and 3.
From then on, we opened one box each evening after dinner up to the 13th.
On the 14th, we went into the city for several days leaving the boxes behind. When we came back on the 19th, we opened boxes 14 through 19 at once.
We then opened one box each evening on the 20th and 21st.
On the 22nd, we headed back to NYC in order to prepare and have our Chanukah dinner with Jen and Louis on the 24th. We opened boxes 22, 23, and 24 when we returned to NJ on the 25th.
I think you have to admit that they do, indeed, know how to “Make It Nice”!
To Daniel, Will, and the entire staff, our sincerest thanks for this incredible gift! But the true gift you give Michael and me is considering us members of the EMP/NoMad/Made Nice family. We look forward to seeing all of you often in 2017.
