We Are Not Bridge And Tunnel

We’ll be heading into the city the last weekend in February. We always stay at the Ramada East Side. It’s in Murray Hill.

If we win the lottery this week we will be moving to the city, we have decided that of all the wonderful neighborhoods in Manhattan we like Murray Hill the best.

As I mentioned a few days ago I/ we really need a New York trip. It takes about 2 hours by bus, the tickets are reasonable and the buses have wifi so we don’t have to talk to each other on the way in. I hate talking while I am moving. You should see how rude I am on an airplane.

Thus far our agenda is:

Eating at Ambre

Eating at the Oyster Bar in Grand Central Station

Eating at Mesa Grille

Some way overpriced cocktails at the King Cole Bar @ the St. Regis

Drinks at the Roger Williams

Food and drinks with our favorite Irish bartender Gareth at Maloney & Porcelli’s – A great steak house

The Morgan Library has an exhibit of Dickens’s manuscripts

The Frick has a Renoir exhibit

We have to run through FAO Schwartz and then bitch about how awful it is anymore and long for the days when it was across the street in what is now Bergdorf’s men’s store.

One of us will have to go to the Disney Store and the other one may cross 5th avenue and leer at the Abercrombie sales team

And that’s just Friday. We have to fill up Saturday and Sunday brunch and then home for The Oscar’s with our special guest star Hillary Kwiatek.


  1. Oh my gosh! I'm famous! ;0

    I hope you guys have a fabulous time and save some energy for red carpet snarking!

  2. We did not make it to New York - but we did watch the Oscar's with Hillary
