spanish lullaby.


really need a reason to hit the spanish beaches this spring? if the picture-perfect weather and spicy paellas aren't enough to convince, how 'bout a day or two of luxe maxi relaxi at the newly renovated eminence med-spa.

this day spa desto is tucked away in the refurbished kempinski hotel bahia estepona in sunny malaga. and like the ladies baring it all on the spanish sands, this place was made for au naturale experiences. fancy a carrot-infused rub or perhaps a blueberry scrub? done and done. everything from the facials to the body works are done with pure organic eminence ingreds. resist the urge to eat your spa prods and move on to a steamy hour in the spa's starry-roofed turkish bath (pictured). but life's not just about looks, right? lucky for you the homeopathic doc is in; he's got all the hot tips for a total lifestyle makeover. doc's orders numero uno: unwind and soak up the healing vibes of the chilled out costa del sol.

they don't call it the med-iterranean for nothing.

Jamon y Fabada!

Sunday Afternoon: Spanish Wine at Bar Jamon!
I don't know how many of you have been to Bar Jamon, but if you have been, you know it's quite fabulous, but roomy, it aint. It's about the size of a walk-in closet, and on any given night you'll find about 50 people, scrunched together, happily eating and drinking and talking over one another. Anyway, the place is much more civilized during the weekend afternoons when you can actually grab one of the coveted window seats and let the afternoon pass slowly by over glasses of sherry and slices of jamon iberico and wedges of tortilla. This Sunday might be a good day to head over to Bar Jamon because they're having one of their monthly Sunday wine tasting events. Last month they focused on big bold Spanish wines and this month they're comparing new and old producers. All tastings begin at 1pm and are $40. Reservations are required and can be made at 212-253-2773. Bar Jamon is located on 17th Street, near the corner of Irving Place.

Sunday Night: Fabada at Pamplona
March is the cruelest month. Don't you agree
I mean, it's just an unapologetic warm weather tease. I can feel Spring around the corner, trying hard to push its way through the crowd of cold windy days, but somehow, it never makes it. Maybe we'll get a warm breeze here or there, but they never last long. Soon, the nasty weather is back. So Sunday night, when no doubt I'll be shivering because I now refuse to wear warm clothes after February, I'll be heading to Pamplona for chef Alex Ureña's Sunday Night Special, a rustic body-heating stew called Fabada.

This traditional Andalucian soup (think of it as a more elegant chili) is made for two ($40) brimming with smoky pork belly, morcilla, chorizo, and creamy butterbeans. Add a nice bottle of Bierzo and you'll be fine with Spring taking its sweet time. Pamplona is located at 37 East 28th Street, 212-213-2328.

60 Miles East

60 Miles East

I am still shaking after viewing one of the most powerful previews of this very real documentary, 60 Mile East!

The real life drama of 27 Dominican migrants risking their lives to get to Puerto Rico by crossing the shark-infested waters of the Mona passage packed into a twenty-foot-long wooden boat, known as a "Yola."
