Ever wonder what you'd do with a concierge if you had one? 

Well, we do, sometimes. So when the PR reps for the Beatrice--a chic new North Chelsea rental perched atop the Eventi Hotel--offered us an inside glimpse into what exactly Beatrice residents asked of complimentary on-site concierge Luxury Attaché the week before Thanksgiving, we looked forward to some armchair voyeurism and a smattering of teachable moments. We were not disappointed.
