The beautiful people
congregate in the fabulous places, paying cover charges and sipping
bitter Fernet. A silent contract signed in Montblanc between people and
place demands vocal adoration from both. Enforceable in the court of the
fabulous, breach will be costly. The beautiful ones don't mind paying.
They are right where they should be. You should be there, too.
Lauren Becker lives in Oakland, California. She knows some beautiful people but refuses to pay covers.
