For those of you amused by my return-to-Paris plans, here’s another good one–I’m leaving for NYC tomorrow. I’ll only be there for the weekend, and I’m going to attend a conference, but still. You may remember my I Hate New York post from last July, which turned out to be merely the amuse bouche of the eight course tasting menu of suck that was my Europe experience. If you do remember that post, you are likely laughing and, again, rubbing your hands together in anticipatory glee.
Fortunately, I think I’ve learned from my mistakes. We’re staying at a hotel that is walking distance from the bus station and from my main destination–a conference I’m attending. We have dinner reservations for both nights–at Le Colonial tomorrow night and at The Modern on Saturday night. I’m super excited about the second one–I’ve wanted to go there for some time.
Another exciting part of this trip is that I may finally get to visit the Met. It is open late on Fridays, so depending upon what time we arrive tomorrow, it may be possible. This is me crossing my fingers.
