Mike and Juliet! Just an FYI if you are going to NYC you can get on their website and get free tickets to the show. It was a great experience! And we actually made it on TV too. Which is pretty cool! Let me just say it gives you a whole new appreciation for TV and shows with audiences for that matter. It was a J-O-B! There are so many do's and don't. Don't look at the camera or monitors, clap, clap, clap, smile, look interested in the show... etc etc etc... I was so self conscious the whole time... not wanting to make a funny face, scratch your noise, b/c i was sure it would be my luck the 2 sec. i did something "wrong" in the 60 minutes that is what would be on national TV. But it was a lot of fun. It is also inside so no freezing waiting outside like others.
The Subway (and no not the sandwich place like my 5 year old thought). This was our mode of transportation the whole week. I know some people are "freaked out" by these things but really they are NOT bad at all and for the price they are FANTASTIC! They are 25.00 for unlimited for a whole week which is great considering that is usually the price of a cab one way for one stop and for our group we would have to get 2 cabs. PRICEY!!! And kudos to KB she is the subway "makmamma" she had the application on her iphone and could tell us exactly what time it would be there and which ones we needed to ride, for how long and boom we were there in no time. I of course was clueless when it comes to Subways but i think you can get a map and figure it out... i just did not have to b/c i had KB!
Chicago... i knew NOTHING about this before i went but it was really good. It was a great story line, entertainment, everything... so good!
Top of the Rock!!! All i can say is breath takingly bee-u-tiful. And from what i understand it is just as good as the empire state building without the wait. 20.00 and you can see all the lights, building, and the whole city pretty much. It really was pretty!!!!!!!!! Very quick elevator ride up 68 floors and then you walk up the last 2 floors. Even the little "chickens" who shall remain nameless survived their fear of heights and observed from the middle of the observation deck. Great Experience!!
Shopping, Shopping and More Shopping... that is just about all you do in NYC. We shopped at all the big stores, Bloomingdale's (were i bought me and B panties that said bloomies on the back... got to say you got something there right???), looked and "wished" at Tiffany's, Macy's, Burberry, Saks, H&M, Century 21 (where i bought the most... always do) Canal Street (aka China Town)...i LOVE that "place" i love to bargain with those people and get purses and jewelry. So FUN!
Serendipity.... i have heard there was a movie...been twice still never seen the movie... need too. They are know for their frozen hot chocolate which was SOOO good. There food is OK... I am a little to "plain" for their food but everyone else liked it and i think it was what i got b/c i sampled everyone elses and it was good. Make reservations if you are going!!! Fun Place!
Ellen's Stardust Diner.... This was my second favorite thing we did This place is sooo cool. It is a 50's diner type place... kind of like Johnny Rockets except they sing and dance the whole time you eat and they actually can sing and dance. The food is pretty good too and they have tons of drinks and desserts too. So much fun... the gets my vote for # 1 entertainment place to eat in NYC... i hope we always go back to this place!
We had a amazing time. I am so tired b/c all we did was GO GO GO but you don't have time to stop or you will miss something. Thanks Mom... it was a BLAST! XOXO
I also have give a huge thank you to my sweet hubby for keeping our kiddos while i go on a trip with "the girls and patrick" on "his" spring break... thanks honey you are the best!
New York Girls and Patrick... it is less than 730 days until our next trip right???? Can't wait!
