Paul and I started the day by going to the Guggenheim. They failed to mention that it was under construction on the web site so we were disappointed to find out we could only see a little bit of the collection. We had lunch at le Pain Quotidien -- AMAZING food! Yum! yum yum!
Then we headed to Central Park but the wind and rain kicked up so we ended up at The Met. A perfect place to wait for the rain to stop.
For dinner we met up with Carmi and her friend Edie at Danal (cute place and great food!) Then we headed to The Blue Man Group. Parts of it I really liked, parts of it really grossed me out. So much that I actually got a gag reflex. I am easily grossed out and I especially couldn't stand the parts where they shoved enormous amounts of food into their mouths. Ick. If those parts weren't in the show I would have totally loved it.
Tomorrow morning we'll be up early to head to Surtex and the National Stationery Show. We're going to hear a talk that Mary Engelbreit is giving on licensing. I'm excited!
-PS Got my Art book you recommended today via amazon. They are fast! whohoo I'm highlighting and already looking it over with a fine tooth comb.
You are making me miss NYC so much! Sounds like the perfect Met morning! Enjoy your time in the city!
I saw the Blue Man Group in Boston, and they scared me!!! When they came into the audience to get volunteers, I was so scared they were going to pick me. I hid my head down and sent definite "leave me alone" vibes. Glad to know I'm not the only one who didn't adore them beginning to end -- I did enjoy most of the show, though.
That "le Pain Quotidien" looks wonderful. I love naturally leavened bread. So much better for you than yeast breads. Fresh French bread is one of my absolute favorite things to eat. Mmmmmmmmm.
I am so jealous of your getting to hear a talk on licensing by Mary Engelbreit! If she has any wonderful tips for the trade, do share!
I am vacationing in New York vicariously through your blog posts. It looks like an absolute blast. Have a great time!
