Doing Lines at Pan American

Skippy L., a good Friend of Global Graphica, demonstrates the proper way of doing lines on a mirror … lines of brown sugar and chocolate, that is, with orange wedges and mini-carafes of high-end sipping rum courtesy of the owners of Pan American, a Latin bistro in Nolita, in downtown New York City. We love the way the colors and light reflect off the mirror. It’s super-sexy, all allusions to coke-culture aside.
