It’s been a month since the Sochi Olympics but aren’t you a little curious about what the Olympians are doing now?! Well, I have an update: The Russian-born Swiss snowboarding gold medalist, Iouri Podladtchikov, better known as “I-Pod”, recently stayed at one of my favorite NYC hotels, “The Standard” in Meatpacking. (Just my luck…I was recently there too and missed my chance meeting!). It was his first trip to America. He had a couple of photo shoots, explored the city, and hung out with his friends and entourage in his hotel room…sharing great food or just playing his guitar. Even former gold medalist, Shaun White, joined the celebration. Congrats I-Pod for the gold medal.
