On a personal note, Karen and I just got back from a long weekend in NYC.. we took the Fung Wah bus from Boston’s Chinatown to NYC’s Chinatown Friday morning ($15 per person each way, a steal!) and arrived a little after noon. Per a friends suggestion, we went to Times Square and got a couple tickets for 42nd Street and then moseyed on to have a cupcake at the Cupcake Cafe. Checked into the hotel, went to the show, had dinner at Les Halles (where we sat 2 tables away from Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale… behind us was Angela from ‘The Bachelor‘ !!!!). Saturday we had a late breakfast, went to Chelsea Market to look at cooking stuff for Karen and then took the ferry over to see my grandparents in Staten Island. They took us to Pal Joey’s for some fabulous Italian food and then I got my grandpa to break out the 20 year slide projector and watch slides from the 50’s and 60’s. Took the bus back today… New York city is a really fun place.
