Off to New York

I am off to the Big Apple for a long weekend.

I am going to take in a Yankee game or two at Yankee stadium. I figure I have to go see it before it is retired for some shiny new stadium. I am thinking about having my picture taken in front of the Lou Gerig memorial that claims that his record will never be broken, wearing my Ripken jersey of course. I don't know, we'll see.

We are going to see the Paul Motian Trio at the Village Vanguard. I have never been to the Vanguard, but have seen Bill Frisell and am a huge fan of his. We will probably hit a few other jazz clubs like Smalls and/or Fat Cat.

We are staying until Sunday. Perhaps we will make it to the botanical gardens or something else. I will let you know all about it.

NYC for the weekend you should really call Joe. He can be our tour guide. The only downer with him is he makes you walk, no cabs allowed. Make sure you bring comfy shoes.

I'm here through the Black Box.
Don't you love it?

I hope you do have your pix taken in front of Lou Gerig. You'll be sorry if you don't. I mean, if you take the pix and decide you don't want it, no harm done. But if you don't take it, I bet you'll end up wishing that you had.
