Twas the night before Christmas, 2014.
New Yorkers were stirring, post a long brunch routine.
The stocking were brought by Wolford with care,
As we decided which Ana Khouri to wear.
Champagne at Anfora to drown holiday stresses,
And mock tourists outside in their Guess peplum dresses.
When from out of an Uber, a jolly man tumbled.
In red Uma Wang fur, down the sidewalk he stumbled.
"On Pamella Roland, On Sally LaPointe,
Help fill this list with the things they all want!"
At a spot by the bar, he sipped Perrier,
As the driver packed gifts in his SUV sleigh.
"Activists and elves – they are all so alike…
They want me to switch to a damn Citibike!
And kids are no better! Through snow and in hail,
No cookies! They leave me Voss water and kale.
Mrs. Claus has me on some Paleo diet,
So I come to this bar for crostini and quiet."
We offer some bubbly to the man dressed in red.
He took a large gulp, thanked us and said,
"Now that is the spirit – you know what I mean.
Merry Christmas to all, and Happy 2015!"
