C O IN THE By Michelle Aviña M N A P Y I 've always fantasized about being invited to one of Hemingway's gatherings in the Roaring '20s. The kind of affair where great minds mingled and exchanged ideas big and small. At times, they aimed to change the world; others, merely to prove a point. I daydream of meeting these innovators whose influence continues to this day. To share a strong drink in the company of Chanel and Schiaparelli, rivals in their day, and learn who they really were and what made them tick. I'd love to see Hemingway go at Fitzgerald. Dalí meet Picasso. Everyone has a time they wish they could visit. This is mine: being a mere fly on the wall of great minds dreaming up great ideas.
