t minus two weeks...

...and counting. we leave for nyc in 14 days, and it's beginning to sound like so much fun I found myself digging through old photos from previous trips. though raised to appreciate new york's cultural offerings, there's not much I'm dying to see on broadway this year. in fact, there's not much new on broadway that doesn't pull its plot from an 80's movie (sister act? spiderman?? really~ spiderman?? call me when you've got a libretto for goonies: the musical). we will therefore be seeking out some of nyc's other cultural contributions to modern society. yeah yeah, art..architecture...fashion...maybe some jazz...sure...

nyc is also home to some phenomenal chefs. thanks to the continuation of restaurant week summer pricing (so that once again, potentially priciest meal of the week: yankee stadium), and thanks to the ever-diligent b, reservations have been booked at gotham bar and grill, matsugen, and jean georges. we'll also make a pass at locanda verde, convivio, and grand sichuan at some point in the week. perhaps we'll make our way out to this place for sri lankan, or this place for thai (yes, in queens)...and if we're being realistic, at some point we'll most likely wander back past claude's old place. omg, claude (click through to this one if none else, then click to her original tribute to him). ::sigh::

then, to keep a little cred back home, we may see about getting our piggy hind-quarters past the ropes here.
