The One with the Big Apple




That's right, I am going back to New York! YEA! I am so excited! Me and some of my coworkers have scheduled a trip to NYC in March. It's been in the works for awhile, but now we have our hotel and airfare booked making it official. I went to New York last May with my friend CT, but we were only there for two days. You can't even begin to cover New York in that amount of time. Plus, he's a typical guy and not into shopping. I don't normally like to shop on vacations either 'cause I don't want to do things that I can do at home. New York is an exception to this because they have better shoe stores. Oh, and H&M. I wish we had an H&M here. So cute and cheap! Some of the other things that I didn't get to do last trip and want to accomplish this go around are Central Park, a Broadway show, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. If anyone has theatre and restaurant recommendations, that would be great. My guide books pretty much only list very expensive restaurants. I'm thinking in the $10-20 range. I love New York! I fantasize about moving there, but I'm too scared to live that far away from my family. The only time I've ever lived away from them was in San Antonio, and that was just an hour away and only for a year. I have become so much more independent since college, just not quite enough for this huge of step. Anyway, I could go on and on about this trip, so I will say goodnight. NYC here I come!


P.S. On a different note I have decided to start a couple of weekly posts that will be easy and enable me to blog more often. Soon to come will be Quote Mondays and Wordless Wednesday, the latter being inspired by Whiskey Talking.

For The Met, it is closed on Mondays, though the Museum of Modern ARt is open (ask me how I know...). Also, most shows are dark on Monday nights. I honestly found many restaurants that were cheap, just from walking around and looking at their menus out front. Where are you staying?

Bearette- I would love to meet up with you while I'm in NY. I am glad that you had a good time in Austin but sad that I didn't get to meet you.

Becky- Thanks for the advice.

I love New York. We go two or three times a year. If you wnat good cheap Italian food in the Theater District go to Bella Napoli on 49th and 8th. Nearly everything is under $12 and they have good pizza by the slice.

If you don't care what you see and don't mind waiting in line for a bout an hour the TKTS booth right in Times Square has half-price tickets to most of the older shows. Otherwise figure out what you want to see and buy in advance. Check out playbill.com for a list of shows.

Have a great trip.
