Over in Manhattan, the New York Palace (above) has launched a "Have a Heart" program, which includes a new brunch menu and some pretty red dresses projected onto the hotel's exterior. The hotel's Courtyard, where we spotted the Snowflake Princess back in December, will be the focus of the projections.
Meanwhile, inside the hotel's restaurant, Istana, a heart-healthy brunch menu will include dishes like whole grain pancakes with blueberries, egg white frittatas, and steel-cut oatmeal.
You'll be seeing red if you stop in at the Palmer House in Chicago today, where Director of Reservations Elizabeth Hein is doing her job to keep "red" at the forefront of people's minds. CBS interviewed Hein, who reportedly survived a heart attack when we was just 27. These days, she feels it's important to educate people about the early signs of heart disease (which for women can include lower back pain, jaw pain and water retention). Red will be all over the hotel's lobby, bar, and entrance, and staff members have been instructed to wear red.
