So..Kristen, Gyeong, Jason and I went to New York City for 3 days. We stayed at the Waldorf Astoria hotel.We dressed up and drank at the Bull and The Bear bar while Fox News filmed "Happy Hour" every evening. (needless to say we were not in our element)
The first night while we were drinking at the bar, guess who walked in! My favorite favorite show stars! The Deadliest Catch on Discovery is one of my favorite shows and Sig (From the Northwestern) and Keith (from the Maverick) came in! I flipped my lid..no lie.Then we went to Mario Batali's restaurant Babbo for a wonderful mealthe next morning, we walked! And Walked!
The Statue of LibertyThe New York Stock Exchange (notice the SWAT team with dogs in the bottom right. The place was on lock down and had been for months apparently)Jason wrestled a bullWe visited Ground Zero..the museum was tough but well worth the tripLunch in Chinatown-YUMMY!Brooklyn BridgeEmpire State buildingDamn rats kept getting in the wayAnd..yes..that was all one day! Needless to say we needed a wind down evening. So dinner at Frankie and Johnnies steakhouse, an old speakeasy that had WONDERFUL steaks!We managed to drink a lot this night. Random bar shot..after random Absinthe shotTimes square at nightThe next day we were a little slow to rise..but once we got going ..we realized we would need a nap before dinner! But we hit FAO SchwartzAnd Rockefeller CenterThen after a nap..we got dressed up for Gordon Ramsey's (Hell's Kitchen and Kitchen Nightmares) The London restaurant. Before the meal we walked down 5th Avenue...we were dressed to actually go IN those stores. Of course, you can take the girls out of the country...
Apparently..Gucci does not allow photography in the store. I found this out after this shot of Kristen modeling som 500 dollar Gucci sunglasses..shhh
The meal was phenomenal!And we got a tour of the kitchen!The next day Kristen and I got up early (after a late night at Miche's house) and went to Rockefeller center to be on the Today Show. Our luck was not there as we didn't get on TV, but we did get some photos of some familiar faces.
Lenny!Lester!The whole weekend gang
