Every time I say New York! in an excited way, I think of the Pace Commercial where they say New York in a Southern accent like totally disgusted. I just can't help it. But anyways, I joined Nick in New York a couple weeks ago. And it was awesome. I would have preferred about 20 degrees warmer, but I have been getting used to the cold in Portland this year (don't get me started complaining about the crappy weather here because its hard for me to stop). Regardless, the weather wasn't too bad and I had a blast cruising around New York for a few days.
Some of the highlights:
1. I got to walk around for two days by myself (while Nick was at work) and I loved it. Figured out the subway, got aggressive with my taxi hailing skills, figured out the general vicinity of where things are, and just tried to soak it all in. And. . . I walked, a lot (which is good considering we pigged out at the restaurants there).
My last favorite thing was seeing Jersey Boys. The star of the show was the original main character that had won a Tony Award for his performance and he was phenomenal! We tried three nights to see Newsies or Book of Mormon with the lottery, but no luck. I am so mad we never won lottery tickets that I am pretty sure I will try it again next time I go. I'm not giving up! Plus, I can't resist the chance to win $30 tickets to Broadway.
