NYC Weekend Recap
Kel Sunday, February 22, 2015I returned today from a weekend in New York City, which I won through a sweepstakes from Ruckus Books. I had an amazing time. A major thank you to all the folks at Ruckus for hosting the sweepstakes and making the trip awesome!
Photo recap! :) (And possibly the most pictures of me I have ever posted online at once.)
Friday night: Bibimbap at this great little Korean restaurant
Saturday: a lazy morning perusing books at the Strand
...and maybe being the nerd who prettified the half-price paperbacks >.>
Broadway's "Aladdin" at the New Amsterdam Theatre
It had the ORIGINAL voice of Jafar from the 1992 movie playing Jafar! Which means the evil laughs were spot-on. And the guy playing Aladdin had a great voice!
The theater itself was beautiful!
And the curtain was a giant carpet-pattern!
I also took a quick look at Central Park, though I skipped walking through it. The weather people were right (for a change). We had a weekend of FREEZING cold and wind, snow, and rain.
And we walked through all of it. I'm proud. But yes, it was a little cold. ;)
Because no trip to NYC is complete without Starbucks. There were two directly outside the hotel and another four or so within a 1-block radius.
And then I went home. :)
PS - There were also empanadas and Panera Bread (both of which we ate before I remembered to take a picture) and a trip to the famous Herald's Square Macy's with the wooden escalators (which my lacking selfie skills failed to capture). :)
