I’ve been a little bummed out lately. You know, with former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich being barred from leaving the country to be on “I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here.”

I think we can all easily agree that it’s totally worth the flight risk to see him in the Costa Rica jungle competing against contestants Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag.

Blagojevich would have kicked their arses to the hills.

So I was hoping a night out with friends would be just the thing to cheer me up and get me out of my Blagojevich funk.

We ended up at this cool, rooftop bar with incredible views of the city and… Snuggie Sleep Blankets?! (And if you don’t know what Snuggie Sleep Blankets are, you need to get your priorities in order and spend more time on your couch watching late night commercials.)

It appeared that a number of patrons at this place were wearing these red, Snuggie inspired, fleece bathrobes.

Really? In New York City? Where the new black is… well, still black.

Yes, this swanky rooftop bar hands them out to anyone who’s cold. Or anyone who thinks their rap with the ladies could be enhanced with a fleece robe.

And because I don’t want to be left out of any new trend…


And because I like to make my husband suffer along with me…


So when the “bright red evening robe” comes to a hot spot in your area, you will be completely in the know.

You’re welcome.

mama bird notes:

I took part in the March of Dimes walk this weekend in memory of two beautiful children, Jake Taylor Pontz and Madeline Alice Spohr. Thank you to Marinka for organizing and everyone who was a part of it.
