One was reservations at the Waldorf Astoria (where we honeymooned). Place is as elegant as it always has been. We ate lunch at the Bull and Bear Steakhouse below the lobby. I haven't had much of an appetite this week but managed a steak sandwich and French onion soup. Deb had lox and bagels and we were both satisfied ... By the way, has anyone figured out how to eat French onion soup without having that long
piece of cheese flap out of your mouth?
We took a power nap this afternoon and then headed to surprise number two: Dinner at Saju Bistro for dinner. It wasn't a place we were familiar with but Deb did her research and turned out to be great. Problem was, we were both not hungry at all so we ordered more soup and more a cheese tray that we cancelled. Big night out for us. They did come out with a birthday candle on some cookies ... Very sweet.
Then BIG surprise number 3!
Tickets to Beautiful ...The Carole King musical which was SUPERB! Gotta tell you if you haven't seen it ... Run to New York ... Seriously. The performances, the music (from her Motown days to her later years) and the story all worked so well together. I'd see it again.
