Just Another Day in The Big Apple…

After Bergdorf’s we went across the street to Apple’s flagship Manhattan store, the one with the entrance that’s just a big glass cubed access to a transparent stairwell that takes you into an underground cavern that is all things Apple. It’s a rather impressive place.  I found this photo of me on a MacBook that was open to Photobooth:

This place I can relate to. #tech

Footwear for the Other 1-Percent

Running out of things to do Monday afternoon, we started exploring the upper reaches of 5th Avenue, starting with Bergrdorf Goodman.  Where we saw these $1,500 dollars shoes.  At least the ones on the right look like you could walk in them, though probably not very far…

It was really weird to hang out even for a minute in a place where you could overhear patrons talking about “the season” like it really means something.

I guess, for them, it does…

Prohibited Photo! Kinky Boots!

They made a big deal before the opening curtain about no photography, and I complied… right until the very end.

I can only hope that this one stolen photo conveys what a great show this is, in so many ways. I’d seen the movie years ago (would you believe on my iPhone, when that was a novel thing to do?), and so had forgotten the story altogether.

The music… the performances… the story… all outstanding.

And, best of all, unlike “The Book of Mormon,” you can actually get tickets for Kinky Boots…

Grand finale, everybody wearing their Kinky Boots. #broadway #newyork #GREATshow!

Everything Is “Social” Now

“Social” media in the real world?

After driving around for nearly an hour trying to find a decent burgers-and-beer bar/tavern in Stamford, CT, we finally settled on this place:

This was on the heels of having dinner at a new joint in Nashville called “Pinewood Social.”
The food was good, but I don’t know if any burger is worth $17.

In an apparent continuation in a the #trend of #trendiness, we have found another restaurant called “social” #trendy #$17burger #digest

When Traveling…

…timing is everything.

We were in Darien, Connecticut.  After running an errand, we were looking for something to do… found a link to the historic Bates-Scofield House and museum and thought that might be an interesting way to while a way some time.

Until we got there and found this:

…and you are here on Friday #timingiseverything #digest

Something rather like this happened when we were in Scotland
