Monday finds me in . . . NEW YORK CITY! Still having a Grand Adventure with Child #4!
(I do owe you a post about our Saturday experience on Long Island. Pinky promise, I will get to it. I've actually started writing it, but found I need a little more time to process the day. (All good, though.)
So, last night, Summy Child #4 and I met up with Editor Wendy and Loggia Child #1 for dinner. Very, very fun! And yummy!
We ate at Virgil's Barbecue. Right by Time's Square. Personally, I can recommend the shrimp and pecan rice. Summy Child #4 was determined to eat ribs (This girl likes her meat!), and since ribs weren't to be found on the children's menu, she ordered her first meal from an adult menu. Another New York memory.
All joking aside, the food was great. And the company was greater!
the south side of the table: me and Editor Wendy. Pardon the wooden cast to our skin. My Blackberry's flash is strong enough to signal in planes at LaGuardia. It was very good to see Editor Wendy again; we last hung out during the summer of 2009.
the north side of the table: Summy Child #4 and Loggia Child #1.
Of course, an evening in Times Square is incomplete without a gander at the Naked Cowboy. Summy Child #4 was appalled. And more appalled that her mother took this picture! Editor Wendy assures me the Naked Cowboy makes more than enough money to buy himself some decent clothes.
Earlier in the day, Child #4 and I took in a Broadway musical: Mary Poppins. Beyond delightful! And we visited an obscenely large Toys R Us WITH AN INDOOR FERRIS WHEEL and an extravagant assortment of gummy candy!
What's on the agenda for today in the Big Apple? A Hop-On-Hop-Off Greyline bus tour. And shopping. In a brilliant fashion move, Child #4 "forgot" her jacket and, now, we must shop for one!
Happy Monday to you all, wherever you may be! Here's the link to the official My Town Monday blog where you'll find great posts about other bloggers' neck (or is it necks?) of the woods.
