Last week my friend Linda and I spent four wonderful days in New York City celebrating her birthday with our NYC friends Louise and Gerry. Actually it was more like a food and wine fest.
When we arrived at our hotel in Manhattan, Louise met us and we had a long leisurely ‘catch up’ lunch at Genesis Bar and Restaurant located at 1708 2nd Ave. They make great angus burgers!
We just had enough time to walk back to our hotel, change clothes and head off to Vice Versa Restaurant (located at 325 W. 51st) where the three of us meet Gerry for supper before going to see the Broadway musical Hairspray. If you liked John Travolta in the role of Edna Turnbald in Hairspray the movie, you will love George Wendt (Norm Peterson of Cheers fame) in Hairspray the musical! At the end of the show the audience was up on its feet clapping and singing along!
