NYC Christmas Weekend

IMG_20221218_161319_290Just a few days till Christmas. Time is of course flying. 

This past Saturday we went down to the city to see Ingrid Michaelson & the NY Pops at Carnegie Hall. Went to Rizzuto's in Westport for lunch and then took the 4.01pm train from the Westport train station which got us to Grand Central around 5.15pm I think. When we got off at Grand Central we were faced with a really busy train station so I had a good feeling that midtown was going to be pretty slammed with people which turned out to be very true.

Sooo many people. Haven't seen it like this since way before Covid. We made our way to a bar/pub a couple blocks away from Carnegie Hall and had a few drinks and a snack there before heading over to Carnegie Hall for the show. The concert was absolutely amazing and reminded me how much I love seeing orchestras live. And Ingrid Michaelson was of course great and the whole combo was just really fun.

After the show we made our way back to Grand Central and thought it being later in the night that stopping by the tree at Rockefeller Center would be an easier undertaking. Nope. Even at 10.30pm there were still crowds and crowds of people, absolutely crazy. But we snapped our picture and then made our way back to Grand Central. Had to wait for our train for a bit but that may have been a good thing because at least that way we were able to get a seat. 11 car train close to midnight and still it was pretty much full. Ended up at home in bed probably somewhere between 1.30 and 2am.

Sunday was therefore a low key day. :) Went to Rosy's and Mike watched the World Cup final game. And eventually headed home to catch up on some recorded TV.

This week has been busy gearing up for some time off and helping team members prepare for their time off as well as coverage. Our office is closed on Friday and Monday (23rd + 26th) so that will give me a 4 day weekend. And then next week we also have a 1/2 day on Friday so next week will be just a 3 1/2 day work week. No complaints. :)

Mail Update: All caught up!
