I must tell you about my day in NYC!! Names may be changed, but, since I don't know how to block out faces, the innocent shall have faces only!
Our awesome day started with meeting in the parking lot of the Ronkonkoma train station. 14 incredibly awesome women with the whole day to themselves!! So, we got ourselves some mimosas in to go cups and boarded the train. Since there were so many of us, we looked for a large group of seats that could face each other. Easily done. As we boarded the train, there were several stray passengers in the car. Most of them left. One poor soul did not. He was warned. He was a smart single guy. He had a name. It was.................Random Guy. Yup. We called him Guy.
The train to Ronkonkoma is 90 minutes to the city. 90 minutes of mimosas and Random Guy. 90 minutes on the 10:40 train to Penn Station. That was the beginning of our day. It was an awesome day.
What happens when 14 women walk past Macy's Herald Square? If I have to tell you, then you're reading the wrong blog! One of the lovely ladies just wanted a gift certificate for a party she was going to the next day. 45 minutes later, we had boobie pasties, a new shirt, a new necklace (on clearance and with a coupon), 3 Starbucks iced coffees and a gift card. Yeah
Then it was off to the show. We managed to find a bar before the show - you know, because they serve drinks during the show, but, why not start early - it's our day off!! Poor bartender didn't know what hit him.
Then I flirted with the guitarist a little -
Good Times! Oh - and then I posed with the lead actor who was in his broadway debut -
Then it was off to Tony's DiNapoli. We were wearing our playbills in front of our faces so they wouldn't recognize us from last year. (Saving the not so innocent there!)
But, all was well and we all sat down to a fantastic dinner that included a lot of seafood that I have no interest in talking about, but what I ate was: Fried zucchini, fresh tomatoes and mozzarella, penne a la vodka, chicken parmesan, chicken francese, tri-color cheese tortollini in an alfredo sauce and meatballs with sausage. - No No - I didn't get that all on one dish- Tony's is family style! It was outrageously delicious and honestly, $60 per girl to feed 14 girls, ain't too shabby!
After dinner we headed back to Penn Station to catch a rather early train - which is highly unusual! We were about to board the train when we noticed - RANDOM GUY!!!
He was stuck with us for the ride home and had to listen to us carry on and laugh and sing and all sorts of good stuff - the conductor actually came by and said that we had to quiet it down. Kill Joy.
I have to say, not to sound old, it was a wonderful day and I was so glad to be home before midnight. Not too much before, but, long enough for me not to worry about pumpkin status!
