New York!! Day 2

To catch up on our amazing New York Day 1 (and our exclusive with THE Jon Hamm!!!) click here!! :)

On Friday, Day 2, we had a chill day walking around Greenwich Village, Soho, Little Italy, and a touch of Chinatown; we had some fabulous meals at some famous restaurants, and the GREAT Broadway show Jersey Boys in the evening!

We bought a quick breakfast on our one block walk to the subway and grabbed a spot to eat after we got off the subway, before walking on our way. We walked just a bit through Greenwich Village on our way to Soho.


It was so much fun leisurely walking around, seeing all of the beautiful buildings, and shops. We didn't do any shopping; you know we're not big spenders but it helped that I was preggy and could essentially only shop for shoes or accessories :-). I almost got a cute pair of flats but they were more expensive than I normally spend and unfortunately not comfortable enough. But I do love to get a fun souvenir, like a little piece of jewelry or something that I can wear and remind of the places that we've traveled to together! So I up getting a fun pair of earrings from a street vender (story another time!).


After we saw Soho, we headed to our lunch destination! Katz' Deli! My Dad reminded us that we needed to go to one of the great Jewish Delis for our New York experience! :) So after pre-trip researching we settled on the famous and highly rated Katz'. Their walls are lined with photos of all of the presidents and actors that have eaten there. Annnnnd Katz' Deli is where Meg Ryan's famous "faking it" scene in When Harry Met Sally was filmed! After confirming with our docs/nurses (again), I was good with getting a piping hot, extremely fresh pastrami reuben. It was SO good! They make all of their meats there, everything is so fresh and yummy! We had to get a knish too, mmmm (and some fries ;))!





Then we walked to Little Italy! We got a real Italian ice, just like ones my Aunt Dottie and Dad used to get when they were little, it was so yummy and refreshing.


We saw a little bit of Chinatown and were so ready to get back to our hotel, rest for a few, before getting ready for our dinner and show! We walked SO much, my feet hurt so bad, they have never hurt like that before :) I learned that I need to invest in some very comfy flats! :)

After a short rest, we went to Bobby Flay's Bar Americain for dinner. It was such a fun experience! The service was incredible. Hubby unknowingly dropped his napkin off his lap at one point and one of the hovering/roaming (but unobtrusive) waiters picked it up, walked away, came back, and in a slick and obviously trained way, quickly shook and got Hubby's new napkin ready to ever so gently fluff and slickly lay in his lap. :) He was like the Batman of waiters! I wasn't the most fond of our waitress but the food was yummy and the service was fantastic. We got the vidalia onion soup for an appetizer, Hubby got the snapper and I got the filet mignon, and we got creamed corn (very yummy) for a side.



Then we walked to our show for the night, Jersey Boys! It was so good. We are still talking about it! Great singing, and acting, and story. It was so fun and funny, and we were singing the songs for the rest of the trip. :)



After the show, partially because we had 12 blocks to walk and partially because my feet felt like they were going to fall off, we took one of the bike, carriage, guys back to our hotel :) It ended up being more expensive than we thought, whew!, but it was worth it :), and he hopped off a couple times to get a pic for us in the middle of Times Square. :)

cheese! :)
Another fun day!
