Start Spreadin’ The News….

I know. I know. Totally cheesy title, but I’m in the fever. Planning my yearly trip to NYC…only this time the focus is around continuing education for my career, not continuing feeding of my soul. I usually spend a week in the center of the universe on a theatre trip sponsored by my university. It’s an amazing trip. If you’ve never been, or just want to go again, I highly recommend you doing it this way. It’s an expensive week, but it’s SOOOOO worth it.

I’m heartsick that I can’t go this year. The timing just isn’t right. Family obligations and such. But that’s ok. I’ll be there later in the year. I’ll be taking a color class at the Loreal Professional SoHo Academy…on Mercer St. . . where I walked bloody blisters on my feet trying to locate the space last May That would be me applying band aids to my heels on a very creative stoop…step…front of a place.

SO…I digress.

I’m probably going to have at least 2 to 3 girls with me from my salon. First timer’s to the city. What I want from all of you are your must see’s. I was a shitty shitty tour guide with little to no tact or patience the last time I did this. Thank GOD for Kizz and Reno. But I don’t want to make the same mistakes this time.

My plan is to get there on a Saturday, do class Sunday and Monday. Tuesday is actually September 11th. Everybody think what they want, “don’t fly on that day” “don’t stay in the City that day” whatever. I actually want to be in the City that day. If for nothing else but to say to my friends…I’m sorry your home got hurt. Here’s my respect and love.

THEN, do more seeing on wed and have the girls fly out then or on Thurs. I would like to stay on a few more days, get some GOOD time in with MY girls and come home the weekend.

It may prove to be too long gone from work, though September is the crappiest month of the year…will just have to see how that pans out.

SO..your assignment, should you choose to take it, is send me a list of Must See’s. I’d like to plan a little (ok. a lot.) and think some things through before it gets here. Plenty of time you say? HA I say. It’s an ever changing city. Up and coming everythings there. and you now as well as I do how fast time goes….I was humming a Guns and Roses song the other day like it was 1989….

huzzah to you all.

  1. Must See/Do:Have you walked a bridge yet? Gotta walk a bridge. I didn’t do until the transit strike forced it, but it was amazing. I walked the Queensboro Bridge into the city…but I hear that old Brooklyn Bridge is a nice walk, too. Kizz?I know you’ve done this before, but your guests haven’t and since they’re staying with me….Bohemian Beer Garden in Astoria, baby!!! woohoo. A mere 15-minute walk from house (10-minute walk if you’re really thirsty) sits New York’s oldest Czech beer garden…and we’re going!You’ll be here before we know it!


  2. B Bridge walk is beautiful and/or the Staten Island Ferry. I’ve never been to the top of the Empire State Building at night but it’s a good one. I love the Frick Museum, it’s very small but very cool. You could do a Yankee Game probably. Or Mets. Shopping at Century 21 down near the WTC. If you feel like spending a little dough and not walking your feet off there’s a Circle Line tour. Important to take a walk down Fifth Ave and browse the big league stores – Apple, FAO Schwartz, Tiffany, Ferragamo etc. Times Square at night. Am I missing anything?Also, I thought you did a pretty good job with your guests last time.
