Month: August 2007

  • Pat Green, Sugarland and Kenny Chesney

    Another long one… Last night Lois and I saw Pat Green, Sugarland and Kenny Chesney at Madison Square Garden (MSG) in NYC. We don’t own any Kenny Chesney albums, and don’t know his music well at all. I have heard many times that he gives one of the greatest shows, but that alone […]

  • Verizon FIOS TV

    So, I’ve been using Verizon FIOS for my Internet connection in the house for quite a while now, and I absolutely love it! When they first installed it, the tech said that they would be introducing TV over the same fiber connection, likely within 6 months. Well, it’s been much longer than 6 […]

  • A very Wicked Sunday 🙂

    If you read my last post, you know that the highlight of yesterday was going to see Wicked for our fifth time. In addition to that specific highlight, the day turned out to be spectacular in a number of other ways. Therefore, this post will likely be very long, and I apologize if […]

  • Can you count to 5? 🙂

    I just checked, and while I mention our obsession with Wicked in 2 (or 3) postings, I have never blogged about Wicked directly. I was surprised, but it made sense when I thought about it for a second. I started this blog right after our last viewing of Wicked. Last? Yes, for the […]

  • Bodies the Exhibition

    This is my final post about our adventures this past weekend (hey, stop clapping!). 😉 After our lunch at Pizzeria Uno on Monday, we walked through Bodies. Our godson just finished his third year in Medical School, and this weekend was a celebration of his completing his Medical Boards on Friday of last […]

  • Girlyman

    No, I’m not looking to pick a fight with you. 😉 Girlyman is a fantastic acoustic group (well, they do use an electric guitar more as a bass, but essentially, they are acoustic). I had never heard of them. Once we locked in the tickets for Spamalot and decided to do a matinée, […]

  • Spamalot

    After our wonderful lunch at The Peking Duck House, we walked to Broadway to see a Sunday matinée of Spamalot. Eons ago, it was one of my favorite movies (Monty Python and the Holy Grail). Given how much I loved the movie, and in general Monty Python, it’s a bit puzzling (to me) […]

  • Curtains The Musical

    Continuing on with our wonderful adventures this past weekend, after dinner at The Palm West on Saturday, we saw Curtains, the musical on Broadway. The main stars are David Hyde Pierce and Debra Monk. We went because our godson was interested in this, we had heard that it was pretty good, but mostly, […]

  • Long Weekend with Company == Food Orgy 🙂

    Our godson and his friend (and for years now, independently our good friend as well) spent a long weekend with us (arriving Saturday morning, and leaving this afternoon, Tuesday). We packed in tons of fun during the 3.5 days, and I’ll post a number of blog entries about our escapades. This one is […]

  • Alison Krauss is Awesome

    Last night Lois and I went to see Alison Krauss and Union Station featuring Jerry Douglas at the Beacon Theater in NYC. We went with our friends who took us to see Harry Connick Jr. at Radio City Music Hall. We were all looking forward to a wonderful dinner at Ruby Foos first. […]
