Joan and I have had a great week in New York. Great food, entertainment, and family togetherness. I'm heading home soon, so before I forget everything (OK, I already forgot half of it, but Joan reminded me), I want to get it all down.
We've been so lucky so stay at a friend's apartment in Chelsea. It's given us a chance to explore the neighborhood, and as always, the subway's let us get anywhere else we need to go. I've tried to attend the Chelsea Shul a few times, but alas, no minyan.
I worked much of the day, so I had to squeeze in our fun around that.
We had lunch at The Half King, then dinner at P.J. Clarke's Sidecar with our cousins, Stephen and Debra
We caught some late night jazz at Ron Afif at the Zinc Bar.
Worked a bunch.
We saw the Ambroise Vollard exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum. Then over to the West Side for food shopping at H&H, Zabar's and Fairway. At night, we took in Almodóvar's latest, Volver
Thanksgiving with Joan's family on Long Island. Really fun, thanks guys!
We finally got to see the Bob Dylan show at the Morgan Library. Then we rejoined our cousins for a quick trip to SoHo. It was way too crowded for us, so we headed back to Chelsea and saw The History Boys, then had dinner at Francisco's Centro Vasco.
Later, we continued our comedy jag at Gotham Comedy Club.
Today we're visiting our pal Graham Arader, then striking the set.
I'm heading home tomorrow. Speaking of which, in the category of "couldn't have done it without you", thanks to Francesca and Barb for taking care of Nora, and especially for the last-minute car errand. You da best.
