The auction is 'Old Master Paintings and Drawing; Important English and Continental Furniture and Decoration; and The Well Appointed room.' The auction is January 27th and the preview is January 23 - 27.
The on-line catalogue promises a lot of decorative pieces that won't break the bank. You never know when you'll find an interesting piece and take a chance that you will win the bidding at a good price. But if you don't win, there's always another auction!
We'll make a day of it, and have lunch somewhere in the neighborhood of Doyle's. Some of our favorites are:
Demarchelier at 50 East 86th Street (212-249-6300). This is a good neighborhood French bistro and always buzzing. Very reasonable as well. Friendly with children.
Centolire is just around the corner at 1167 Madison Avenue (212-734-7711). It's very good Italian with a downstairs that's more informal, and a somewhat more formal upstairs. Very friendly to children.
Le Paris is another French bistro and a bit more of a walk. It's at 93rd St. and Madison Avenue (1312 Madison, 212-289-0997). It's pretty small so maybe call ahead. There is a very well priced lunch special.
If you get a chance to go, have fun!
