Big City of Dreams June 6, 2006

Posted by Q in Family, Links, Travel.

I love spending time with my mommy šŸ™‚

This past weekend we were in NYC – just hanging out. She had a conference in the city so we took advantage of the opportunity.

Thursday night we meetin up with a colleague of her’s for dinner at Asia de Cuba (excellent). Friday I did some work from the hotel/library and she finished up her conference. Unfortunately it was raining cats and dogs all friday evening so we just chilled.

Saturday was a blast though. We headed up midtown for lunch and the matinee of Avenue Q. The show was fantastic! If you haven’t seen it, head to TKTS, get some tickets and check it out. While coming out of Avenue Q we happened upon Julia Roberts exiting after her show Three Days of Rain. My mom was thrilled because she called Julia’s name and Julia looked directly at her and smiled. They bonded šŸ™‚ Instead of heading back downtown, we hung around Times Square for a while then saw The Break Up. (The acting was good, but I didn’t like the story. Over all, I thought it was just an okay movie.)

Sunday we planned on head out to Liberty Island, but there were no more tickets available. So instead we decided to chill in Battery Park for a bit. On the walk back to the hotel we came across the National Museum of the American Indian. If you are downtown, stop by. They’ve got an intereseting exhibit on ceramics and a beatiful jewelry display. We also stopped by Ground Zero then happened upon the River to River Festival. All throughout the weekend they were shooting the next spidey movie downtown. At one point we saw the live taping – although no stars, just a bunch of extras pretending to watch Spiderman on the side a building.

It was a fabulous weekend in the city with Moms šŸ™‚
