We started our trip into NYC by driving through time square to get to our hotel which was a block and a half away. I haven't been in NYC for over seven years and Kgordee has never been so it was fun to experience it for the first time with each other.
We checked into our hotel and then walked around before dinner, we saw were Letterman films and waited around to see if we could catch a glimpse of his guests, Michael Sera and Julia Louis Dreyfus, but no luck. We had a dog from a street vendor and I have to say that it was really lame, it might be that I'm just pg and weird right now, but I highly doubt it.
After dinner we went to see Phantom at the Mystic theater and we had great seats. Kgordee had never seen it before and the only time I had was about sixteen years ago. I really love musicals, and though it isn't my favorite musical by far, seeing it with Kgordee makes it one of the coolest theater going experiences I have ever had.
After the show we went up to the top of the Empire State Building for a look see, it was midnight and very cool (also very cold) and the lights from the city were amazing.
The next morning we went and waved at the Today show cameras and watched Ann and Matt chat up the crowd. We took a tour of the NBC studios, where we saw the set for Conan and SNL, which were both ridiculously small. I gave Kgordee a little bit of crap over the tour, but it was actually so rad. It was cool to see where everything is filmed and all the random pictures of SNL over the years hanging in the halls.
We ended our trip with a picnic lunch and wee little stroll around Central Park. We only had twenty four hours in NYC but we packed a lot in and really enjoyed ourselves.
Thanks, Kgordee for the best seven years of my life, you rocked this trip.
