My gift to Nick was the recently published Joe & Marilyn book about DiMaggio and Monroe. I sat in the VIP area with other luminaries of the evening, including birthday boy Nick and Lola Avana, ICON's resident Marilyn, behind velvet ropes.

I met several new friends that night and got a lift home from the club's celebrity dj, Ian Ford, who lives in neighboring Bay Ridge. We chatted all the way home. Any ears on fire?
There were many Marilyn swirling and photo-opting their way across the club floor -- just like the real thing. I didn't count 100 but I was drinking, so who knows! Queen Levine's djing was remarkable and had the crowd on its feet, dancing through the night. This was a happening, my couch potatoes, something you can rarely have home alone. ICON frequently reminds me of the need to get out more.
