The Big Apple

So the rest of my week in NYC was great. Thursday night we went to PJ Clarke's, where I was the only one to indulge in one of the greatest burgers on the face of this Earth!

Friday---cooped up all day...

Escape came at 5pm, when we left the hotel and went to Rockefeller Plaza and walked up and down 5th Avenue. Dinner was at the Sea Grill at Rockefeller (YUM!)...we sat outside until it started to rain. The rain left clouds and the clouds meant 0 visibility on the Top of the we didn't go up. Instead we went to Times Square and mingled with thousands of other tourists.

Saturday we had breakfast at Pret a Manger (YUM!) and then made our way to MOMA. After a leisurely stroll through the galleries and gift shop, we popped into the Folk Art Museum gift shop...then cabbed it up to the Met for lunch and taking in of. The Met has a great show called Model as Muse sponsored by Marc Jacobs. It's a beautifully curated show, as most of their Fashion Exhibits are. They also have a new public storage area funded by Luce (like the one at NY Historical) after taking in some galleries we hit the gift shop and then walked over to Madison for my ritualistic romp at Eats Gifts.

After that we parted ways and I made my way across the park on foot and over to Broadway to take the 1 up to 110, my old stmping grounds. Miguel met me at Deluxe where I had the infamous BLT (YUM!) and then we went to his place in Harlem...beautiful! We kicked it old school by watching a movie, Public Enemies (very good). After all of that on Saturday I was up for more adventures so I met CB at Bar 55 for a fantastic performance by Sweet Georgia Brown, the last of the Red Hot Mamas ( a must see!!)...we got back to the hotel at 3am.

Sunday we romped through Soho via Canal Street and up West Broadway over to Spring to get to Broadway. There was a street festival going on, on we took in the booths, had lunch on the corner of Mercer and Spring...then made out way to the hotel for LGA.

That was it...a great trip!!
