GINO, NYC

It was the defining moment of our mini Hosstravaganza in New York City last month. After an exhaustive tour of screaming popes at the Met, we limped over to Gino, a bar/restaurant  famous among animal-themed wallpaper aficionados (zebras romping on a field of crimson) and treated ourselves to a representative sampling of authentic New York types at the bar. Kind of like sociological tapas. A good time was had by all.
