A New York City Valentine’s Kiss

If we made it there, we can make it anywhere! …So I hear.

Hubby and I just returned from a gala Valentine’s weekend in New York City. We did most everything that we wanted to do (and a little bit more). In the days to come I will share stories and pictures, but today I will provide you merely with the list of activities and places that we went. Ready?

– Flew into LaGuardia

– Taxi to Hotel (The Library Hotel)

– Gasped at relative size of hotel room (huge for NYC)

– Grabbed a bite at the Pret A Manger

– Went to Public Library, explored, imagined that we were there with Jake Gyllenhaal and a huge wall of water is coming. Hold me Jake!

– Checked out Fashion Week at Bryant Park, saw somebody being photo’d by the paparazzi but am not cool enough to know who it was.

– Dinner at Shun Lee, Dim Sum

– Opera at the Met (Adriana Lecouvreur), starring Pladico Domingo

– Desserts at Europa

– Went to oldest Gay bookstore in NYC (sadly closing soon)

– Went to Stonewall Inn (site of riot that started gay rights movement)

– Went to one of several puppy stores on Christopher Street.

– Brunch at Manatus on Bleeker Street

– Went to ABC Home store. Died, went to heaven.

– Walked through Times Square

– “Forbidden Broadway” musical (excellent)

– Dinner at Sardi’s (the place with all the portraits). Best steak ever.

– Museum of Natural History, saw a Planetarium show

– Walked beside Central Park

– Fought with the subway system

– Lunch at Bubba Gump Shrimp

– Matinee of “Billy Elliot”

– Went to Ziegfeld Theater, saw “Coraline” in 3D

– Take out at Stage Deli

– Went to Battery Park

– Stood in line for Statue of Liberty visit, but she was all booked up.

– Went to Ground Zero

– Went to Macy’s

– Lunched at Max Brenner (Chocolatier)

– Walked 18 blocks back to hotel

– Back to LaGuardia

And yes, we have the blisters to prove how much we walked. But a more perfect or romantic Valentine’s Day I have never had. More tomorrow!
