Birthday week in New York

I went to New York for a work related seminar last week. I stayed at the Barclay Hotel all week. It's in a great location (48th and Park Avenue), within walking distance to most of the top tourist spots. I went to Rockefeller Center and watched the taping of the Today show - weekend version (no Meredith and Matt but did see Lester Holt). I also walked to Time Square, Radio City Music Hall, and Grand Central Station.

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.
