Postcards from New York
What a fun weekend in New York! It was mostly just shows and eating — two of my favorite things. Throw in a hefty does of SoulCycle (my favorite place to unwind/destress/simply BE) and a few cocktails, and I couldn’t imagine a better girls weekend. I appreciate that I’ve been to the city enough times that I don’t feel like I have to stress to fit everything in. I’ve seen plenty of museums before, and I’ll be back to see them again!
This weekend was my third time seeing Hamilton. I’ve been obsessed with this show for a long time and know that I’m incredibly lucky to have seen it so many times (once in Chicago, once in Durham, and once in New York). I also think it’s super interesting to compare the casts across the productions and how that changes the experience of the show. This was far and away the best Aaron Burr I’ve seen! We also saw To Kill a Mockingbird, which is basically just a little Newsroom reunion, as Aaron Sorkin adapted it for the stage and it starts Jeff Daniels. I loved it, and I also loved seeing so many high school age kids at the production.
A happy Soul gal after two classes in two days.
Dinner at Eataly (YUM!), brunch at an Italian spot in Midtown (there’s no such thing as too much pasta), and my very first dim sum experience (at the Golden Unicorn).
After seeing To Kill a Mockingbird on Sunday afternoon, we had about an hour to kill before grabbing our bags from the hotel and going to the airport. We popped into Gulliver’s Gate, a museum literally across the street from the Shubert Theatre. It’s a miniatures museum (experience? Not entirely sure what they’d want to call themselves), and it was so fun to spend an hour staring at all the intricate scenes. Hard to pick a favorite!
