Our plan Monday was Central Park, lunch at Tavern On The Green
and a few shopping stops. However we had a few amendments to the day.
TOTG was closed...so hot dogs in the park were a must.
I was in heaven...Central Park was number 1 on my to see list while here and the weather created a magical day to experience it.
On our way to the park, we passed the Ed Sullivan Theater where they were looking for Late Show audience guests. We entered the free ticket lottery and hoped for the best.
We were lucky winners!!!!
However this meant we needed to change clothing--which meant we must
shorten our Central Park visit.
Happily the need for my first subway ride was required.
The tickets are free but you work your smile muscles into cramps,
not to mention blisters from clapping....it was more than worth it to this David Letterman fan.
Sorry no photos allowed....bah humbug.
Thankfully Rupert at Hello Deli was happy to pose for a shot with me.
This next shot had to be taken in honor of my first Hendricks Gin experience.
Faith, tell Daniel that I understand now.
I had a splendid cocktail made with Hendricks, muddled cucumber
and Leachy juice...my new favorite!
After the W our plan was to experience the Rainbow Room for sunset...yet another amendment.
When we arrived the elevator attendant told us in a very kind way that we may be disappointed in more than the prices, which we expected.
What we did not expect were: dirty windows, wrinkled table linens, pen scratched out menus, and non-existent service. Thus our decision to exit stage left....poor Shelleice, she loves the Rainbow Room-or shall we say the OLD Rainbow Room.
Just a random city shot that happened to be the last of day.
