  • 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. […]

  • July 2007 Poker Summary

    So, I just finished the month on a reasonable high note, coming 3rd out of 108 players in an Omaha Hi-Lo tourney. I was the leader going in to the final table, and when there were 7 left, I was in last (one really bad hand, very poorly played on my part!). So, […]

  • Final Sunday July 2007 Poker Update

    Well, got to play a bit of poker this week, but it didn’t go so well. I will still wait until the end of the month (just two more days) to report more generally. Yesterday, I played in a qualifier to get into the big one tonight. Ironically, we were supposed to have […]

  • July 2007 Poker Streak Finally Ends

    Oh well, it had to happen. I went a week without playing any poker while we were down at Zope. Then we had an unscheduled business meeting in NYC that was too important to miss, so we cut our trip to Zope short by a week. The side benefit was that I got […]

  • July Poker Roll Continues 🙂

    So, we drove from NY to VA today. Most of the ride was good and uneventful, until we hit Springfield, which was at a dead stop, as it often is… Took an extra 30 minutes to get to the hotel. All in all, I guess we can’t complain. Spent a number of hours […]
