I Heart New York!

Hello from New York City! The Human Pin Ball and I are here for three days.
Just look at all the musicals out there just waiting for me. If I could see a Broadway musical everyday, I would. I came mainly to go to the Stationery Show. So, I spent the day at the Jacob Javitz Center. It was a good show. I saw lots of cool stuff.

After the show, we went to the 1/2 price tickets place off Times Square, because if we are here and it is night, we are sitting in a show. It is simple. But, before the show, we ate dinner at Bobby Flay's restaurant Bar Americain. Put it on your list. Go there. Don't forget. It is some of the best food I have ever eaten. And, there was a pineapple cilantro candle burning in the restroom that I wanted to drink, it smelled so good. When you go, have the Fries Americain. It is what they are famous for.

Then off we went to Rent. Rent is closing this summer so we felt compelled to see it in case we never get the chance again. I don't think I will be around in 30 years when the do the revival. And we got 1/2 price tickets. On stage, it is earthier. There is one set and everything happens on it. The music to this show is great.
La Vie Boehm. Reminds me of my college days when I was a dance major and we danced around the cafeteria.
The weirdest thing I saw today was a guy with a sign: I want money for beer. I was in the taxi and I asked the driver, "did that sign say I want money for beer?" He laughed his head off and said, "you have to hand it to the guy, he is very honest about how he is spending the money you give him." Then I closed my eyes again.
Tomorrow night, the main attraction...Patti LuPone in Gypsy!
Trend Shopping tomorrow!
