Show trip route
After a few hours of sleep and our last day in NYC, D & G headed out early to the TKTS Discount Booth on Time Square, which sells 50% off Broadway shows. Being accessable to tourists the line weaved up and around the block so we went to the other TKTS Booth in Seaport [corner of Front and John Street]. It's a minor trek out there but it's so worth it! I thought they were closed because there was not a single person in line. We walked right up and got tickets for Fuerza Bruta at 50% off original ticket price. After enjoying the past days of warmth shocked us with the sharp chill of the low temperatures today. As long as you're bundled up, the cold is bearable because you're walking and moving around, but if you keep your ears and hands exposed they'll get numb...like what happened to me!
Gary, Kelly and I walked off our food by heading out to SOHO. Amazingly, the streets of SOHO were filled with people in and out of the stores, as if was the day after Thanksgiving! I finally fulfilled my curosity by shopping at the popular Japanese clothing Uniqlo. It is a huge 2-story store! They have all the basics for men and women at affordable prices. Time check: 5pm - we split up to get ready for tonight's show at 7pm.
We all at dinner at Eatery [798 9th Street & 52nd Avenue, www.EateryNYC.com]. I enjoyed the food. I thought the food was very tasty and created well. I ordered the Sea Scallops with asparagus and black fettucini - excellent! I tasted Kelly's meal of pork tenderloin with bbq corn salsa and potato gratin - tasty but slightly dry. I also tasted Gary's meal - White cheddar meatloaf with onion rings and mash - tasty as well but too much of the cheddar might be end up too much. Overall I would go back to eat the Sea scallops.
It was time to say good bye to Kelly. It was fun to see her again and I'm glad we were able to meet up and catch up with things. I'm proud of her efforts to move out here to NYC from SF. She's doing well out here and I wish all the best, even though I hope that she moves back home soon because we miss her in SF!
