My roommate Kristin & I headed to Merc Bar in Soho for our 1st night out. After sipping on a bottle of $400 champagne (courtesy of some new friends) we ran into Russell Simmons. (Not to be confused with workout legend, Richard Simmons) Sans entourage & after hanging up his cellular mobile (you know you want to call it that too), we boldly chatted him up and snapped this photo.
For our 1st escapade in the big apple? Not too shabby.
