Mets Baseball & David Garrett = Fun NYC day
Quick update on a fun day and night out in New York City yesterday.
Mike & I went to see the Mets at Citi Field (baseball). The game started at 12.10pm. After all the crazy heat and humidity all last week it was actually quite chilly, only in the 60ies (18C) and pretty windy too. Plus some rain showers/drizzle in between. We still had fun though. It was a good game and the Mets also won which helped. :)
After the game Mike headed back to Connecticut while I took the subway into Manhattan. Had dinner at Blue Haven while waiting for the doors to open at Le Poisson Rouge for David Garrett's showcase. Really neat venue. Basically a club where they had tables set up in front of the stage and also a standing room area by the bar. The tables had already sold out by the time I had purchased my tickets so I had standing room tickets but really there wasn't a bad place to be at all. Didn't have to worry about drink/food minimums either not having a table.
Jana met me at the club and we had a good time watching David perform. It definitely was a very cool show. More laid back and less scripted than some regular shows. He seemed to say whatever came to his mind, joking around etc. Really fun.
He played for about an hour and a half which for $30 wasn't a bad deal at all. After the show Jana and I walked around the village some more and had a late dinner at La Laterna on McDougal Street. Shared smoked salmon and a 6-cheese platter. And some profiteroles for dessert. Delicious.
Afterwards we took a cab back to Grand Central and the train back to White Plains where Jana had parked the car. The ride home turned into an forever ride as there was construction around exit 1 on 84. Didn't get home till 1am. So needless to say I am kind of out of it today. :)
Working tomorrow since I was off yesterday. Then Sunday we are heading to Goshen for the annual CT Wine Festival which should be fun.
