The official countdown to the weekend has begun, in my mind. After staying at work late last night, I get to leave about an hour early tonight. I’m looking forward to it, because Rob and I are meeting friends in NYC to see Andrea Bocelli perform with the NY Philharmonic. I’m excited!
I’ve only been to 1 concert my entire life and that was back in high school. As long as weather permits, we’ll be there with bells on!
Living so close to the city you’d think that we would take much more advantage of what it has to offer. Sadly, we rarely visit; however, this will be the 2nd time since Saturday that we made the trip.
Rob and I celebrated our one year anniversary, 2 months late, with dinner and a show in NYC on Saturday night.
We started off with dinner at Bar Masa.
I’m not exaggerating when I say that it was the best sushi I’ve ever eaten. The fish literally melted in your mouth. Such a treat!
After dinner, we walked around the building, exploring. It was September 10th, so there was a ton to look at with the anniversary of September 11th being the next day.
We took in our fill of pictures, from the past and present, and then made our way across the street to Starbucks, for an after dinner treat. It’s there that I had my first Pumpkin Spice coffee of the season.
We made our way to Radio City Music Hall via bike….
Our driver seemed smaller than the guy in the photo. I don’t know where his strength came from, carrying our lazy butts to the show while we enjoyed our coffee. 😉
Then, there it was….
I hadn’t seen the building in what seems like forever. I actually used to walk by it every day, when I worked in the city.
We decided to see Cirque du Soleil Zarkana.
The performers were great. The storyline got a little lost in between the beginning and end. All in all, it was a good show and nice to do something out of our norm.
That’s what I love about Rob. He always brings new experiences into my life. He said he likes watching me as I’m experiencing something new. I must look like a kid in a candy store, with my mouth agape and my eyes as wide as can be.
Now, a little over two hours and I’ll be skipping out the doors here. I’m looking forward to experiencing something new, surrounded by good people.
Have a great day!
