"the" Mrs. Astor

As if this town needed it, tonight is Sleepless Night in Miami. First hosted by Paris as "Nuit Blanche" and then taken up by Rome, Madrid, Brussels, and Toronto, a night with no end is unleashed for the first time in the United States here, tonight in Miami Beach.

From 6 PM to 6 AM, non-stop concerts, ballets, exhibits, art shows, and general mayhem will be encouraged by a city long known for its fear of such things. Who would have guessed? All I know is that Leopoldo and I will be dancing on Lincoln Road at our favorite restaurant, da Leo, to the entertainment of Geraldine and Juicy Pussy at midnight. One party on the beach across from The Palace lasts with silent movies until 5 AM; the city then announces a "sleep in" and serves breakfast at dawn.

Ask me why I live here, again.
