What a Great Time in NYC!
Our son bought us all tickets to The Lion King in New York for this last weekend!
My husband and I dropped our puppy off at her sisters (I'm sure she'll write more about that in her blog!) and we took the train to New York. Amazingly, the train was on time and we got to New York about 5:30PM. Our son met us at Penn Station after a bit of confusion about where we were. He left the building and came in where we said we were. It turned out to be the next gate over from where he was waiting!
We took a cab to the Hemsley Hotel and had just about time to get ready for the show. While my husband was showering, my son and I went out to Pax Wholesome Foods for some sandwiches and drinks which we ate very quickly while dressing.
We went outside and, of course, it was raining! Cabs were zooming by and we never got one so we took the Times Square Shuttle from Grand Central Station and walked the couple blocks to the Minskoff Theater.
The show was just wonderful! The costumes were fantastic and the whole thing was so well-done. Of course, we got a copy of the CD to relive the experience over and over. I can't thank our son enough for getting these tickets!
