The day had a slow start to it â€” which was just fine with me. But by 1:30 – we were on a roll for the day. Took the train up town to a fancy dancy dinner at Le Bernardine – we had appetizers and entrÃ©es and all that regular fare, but all I seem to be able to remember is that peanut-chocolate-carmel-salt desert thingy. After tasting that thing, it’s possible that I have been wrong all these years â€” maybe there is a god!
Then as is our habit â€” we were off for the nights Broadway entertainment. We saw Nice Work if You Can Get It with Matthew Broderick – Loved it! These shows are amazing productions â€” dancing, singing, costumes, lights, sets â€” the whole magillia and every performer, musician, stage hand, etc. gives everything they have to the audience and they do it eight times a week! Amazing!
Our walk last night was a tad more challenging as it was raining and walking in a people ocean with umbrella is a dance unto itself. It takes us about six blocks to get out of the serious crowds and get a good pace up as we walk. Our apartment is on 8th St. In Greenich Village, most shows are uptown between 42nd and 58th (jazz up toward 66th)â€” so we have a good walk after the show each night. Last night we walked to the West Village for an open mic show. Weâ€™ve had great luck seeing and listening to some very talented singers at these ope mics, but last night was a bit of a bust. One guy actually read the words to his song off his iphone â€” not too impressive â€” hence we came home early-ish and I canâ€™t say I didnâ€™t mind.
One more sleep until I head home â€” which also means one more big show, blow out meal, and late, late night. Then back to sitting on the patio in the quiet with Ken.
I heart NY but â€” there is no place like home!
