Bubby's for brunch. I'd heard many good things about this little spot and was not disappointed. After breakfast we hurried back to the hotel to change into something more "fashionable" for Helen Yarmak's spring/summer show. ;)
After the show we wanted to head to Rockefeller Center and see what that looked like. We found Magnolia Bakery and grabbed a banana pudding which was insanely good! And while we munched we checked out Radio City Music Hall and Saturday Night Live and then went to the Today Show area at Rockefeller Center and tried to reconcile the fact that in real life it was infinitely smaller than it appears on TV. And we had to hit up the Free People as well!
After walking a few miles in our heels we decided to go back to our friend's hotel, The Wellington, and change back into something comfy. Their digs were a block from Times Square so obviously our next stop needed to include a jaunt around that world famous spot. Being in Times Square was a cool experience but one I have no interest in doing again. Well, unless it's to see a Broadway show. When I was 18, the dance company I toured with performed in an off-broadway theater right there. From what I remember of that trip, this area has changed dramatically. It's inundated with giant screens and lights, as you can tell by those shots on TV, and it's really impressive. But it's also filled with strange characters trying to shock everyone with their in-your-face messages and that part was truly disturbing. Definitely not a family friendly area, which surprised me. We ate dinner at Shake Shack that evening, seriously yummy and seriously busy!
Day 2, DONE!
