We went to New York to check out all of the tourist sites this past weekend. We had alot of fun in Central Park and Times Square. We also went to 30 Rock, Statue of Liberty (be prepared to stand in line - it took 4 hours), Empire State building, and Grand Central Station. We also went and saw Spring Awakening on Saturday night.

My favorite restaurant was Asia de Cuba. The decor is very hip and the food is a fushion of Asia and Latin favorites. It's recommended that you share the portions, so I was able to try quite a few things. The lobster mashed potatoes were my favorite. The best part of the trip was seeing Wicked at the Gershwin Theatre. It was awesome. I can't wait to go back and see more shows.
I brought Kirk two t-shirts - NY Giants and a NY Jets. Of course, he liked the J-E-T-S, Jets, Jets, Jets shirt. I'll probably be wearing the Giants one as pajamas.

I forgot to take pictures of the Riverwalk. I walked up and down it many times & even had a few meals along side it but what can I say I wasn't in 100% tourist mode.

The place reminded me a lot of college. Very dark and very loud. We had to yell to talk to everyone. The place was mostly Alabama alumni like I thought it would be. Makes sense. There aren't a lot of farms up here in DC.
The best part of the whole deal was that they had a tab set up so we got free beer! What a city!
Afterwards I took Kristy out to a sushi place that I used to check out near work called Nooshi. Those of you who read the New Orleans blog (which I imagine is everyone) know that this is still a relatively new thing to me. The funny thing is that I'm actually acquiring a taste for it. Those following at home will be happy to know that I have mastered the chopsticks.
You all know what's coming next.
We shared some shrimp tempora roll, soft shell crab roll and spicy crunchy shrimp roll. Also had a little General Tso chicken. Everything was awesome.
I'm really getting in to this sushi thing. I just couldn't contain my excitement.
Kristy enjoyed the food but most of all she is a huge fan of their lemonade.
We really like Nooshi but it's a long way from our apartment. If we're back in the area any time soon we'll check it out again.

I thought it would be cool to meet some fellow fans so I organized a bar night at Dr. Dremo's on Friday. At first it was just going to be a few people but then they mentioned it on the show and we had a good group show up. There were quite a few regular show guests who stopped by. It was fun to see their faces after hearing their voices so much over the years.
Here are a few pictures
This is me and Kristy with Don the Hypnotist. He's been a guest on the show quite a few times. There are clips of his most recent appearance on YouTube. You should check them out. They're hilarious.
The two on either side of me are Bobo and Kathleen from the Bronx. They're both regular callers and guests on the show. Both are too funny.
Me with a bunch of other fans.
I just posted this one because Kristy looks adorable in it.
We had a fun time and agreed to try to set something up again sometime.
For whatever reason we never made the effort to go to any of the events they set up and that was a mistake.
Now that we're in DC we're gonna make a real effort to get out more. We're lucky that the Girata's are already here and we've had a lot of fun hanging out with them. They introduced us to a bunch of their friends a few weeks back at one of their regular card nights. Good times.
In addition to that I intend to join the University of Alabama alumni association. They have an athletic league with competitions set up with other school's alumni. I hope I can make the softball team or something. If I make it I'll be sure to put up a picture or two. I'll know more about all that in a few weeks.
