Well, Wicked came to Denver and I didn't think to see it. It's really, really good, and I was wondering if I should read the book or not.
We stayed in mid-town at the Affinia 50 hotel. Very nice.
DD and I flew out of Denver at 12:40 a.m. on Saturday morning - got to the hotel at about 7 a.m., and slept a few hours. Then we went to the Empire State building, and also walked around a little bit. We rode the subway lots! That night we ate at an Indian place that was really nice. I think it was near Times Square.
Sunday we got up late (whoops!) and rode the subway to Central Park West where we walked by the Dakota (John Lennon's former abode) and went to the Museum of Natural History. VERY cool place. Then we subbed it again over to the Theater District to see Wicked, which was the 3:00 matinee. Then we went to an Asian Fusion place for dinner, which was also very good. I think we walked back to our hotel from there, it was only 6 or 8 blocks if I remember correctly.
Monday we got up early and did the harbor cruise (about 2 hours, and it goes by the Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island). Then we got really messed up on the subway and rode all over and ended up back where we started and had to walk almost all the way across Manhattan to get back to our hotel, LOL! Then we went to the airport. My DH & DS were supposed to fly out at 5:15 on United, and my DD and I were scheduled to leave at 9:40 on Frontier, but we checked in for the 5:40 as standby, and got on! We actually beat the guys home, LOL. Only problem was taking my meds. They tell you 20 minutes beforehand and it takes my meds an hour to work.
But it went ok anyway.
Oh, I forgot, I think it was Saturday, we went to St. Patrick's Cathedral and lit a candle for my mom.
