Nick Verreos Hosts "Project Runway Season 12" Part 1 Finale Live Webchat, NYC
Two Thursdays ago, I flew to NYC to host the first ever "Project Runway" Live Finale Web Chat!! My partner David Paul, naturally came with me to NYC since I needed his "support" and well, he just LOVES NYC so he didn't even question joining me on this trip (usually for my work trips, he just stays back in Los Angeles with our little Benny and "holds down the NIKOLAKI fort"). The night we arrived, we checked into our wonderful hotel room at the very hip Royalton Hotel located on 44th Street between 5th Avenue and Avenue of the Americas in Midtown West.
A Balcony In NYC!!!! Nick Verreos takes in the balcony in his hotel room, Royalton Hotel NYC
I just about had a heart attack when I walked into the room and then noticed that there was a HUGE balcony attached to the room--just for us! Now, if you know NY and know NY hotels, it is a RARE sight indeed to have a balcony--and a good sized one--as part of your NYC hotel.
David Paul and Nick Verreos, Times Square NYC
After I got my breathing back to normal, we ventured out to Times Square and took some pics (so touristy of us!), and looked for a diner to get a late dinner. The following day was my Live Chat...

When Do We Start? Nick Verreos about to Live Chat with "Project Runway" fans across the US
HERE and read it on MyLifetime.com and see what I thought of the episode.
Since we were in NYC, David and I decided to stay a couple of nights after the Live Chat to get in some "fun/relaxing" time...
NV Nick Verreos--Lord & Taylor 5th Avenue
David and I also got a chance to visit Lord & Taylor on 5th Avenue to see if there were any of our NV Nick Verreos dresses...and lo and behold there were!! We found this one multicolored apple green and pink printed dress and of course, we had to take some photos!
Nick Verreos and Damaris Lewis, Nizza Restaurant NYC
Afterward, we had a nice dinner at one of our favorite restaurants, Nizza, where I recognized one of my favorite TOP models, the stunning Damaris Lewis, who has appeared in the 2009, 2010, 2011 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issues--she happened to be seated next to us. She also recognized me and is a big fan, so of course we had to take a pic! She was having dinner with her friends after doing a Samba Workout! This is what a Supermodel looks like after a Samba workout: flawless. Work It Huney! We finished our last night with our NY friends at a party overlooking the Manhattan skyline:
