Acacia, Sam, and I were in the fifth row, dead in the center. Great view. Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson ended up having their seats three rows infront of ours. After the play ended, and we went outside to wait beside the stage door, it was nearly midnight. The actress I was completely excited to meet, Yvonne Strahovski, came out just before midnight, and I was able to get a picture with her and her autograph on my Chuck Season 5 DVD. I was completely starstruck, as she is one of my favorite actresses.
Sunday was our predetermined shopping day. We started by going to Chinatown, and shopped around there, and had lunch at Nice Green Bo. We then made our way up to the Upper East Side, where we went to Dylan’s Candy Bar on 3rd Ave and 60th St. We stopped by the New York Palace Hotel and then went to Fifth Ave, and shopped our way down to Times Square. We had dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe, which although is a bit pricy, has great food. We got back to Brooklyn in time to relax and watch the Golden Globes. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were AMAZING hosts. Everyone has already said this, but they should seriously host everything. I was happy for Jennifer Lawrence, the Les Mis cast, Ben Affleck, and Jessica Chastain. TV, I didn’t really care about, but I cheered when Lena Dunham won, because after seeing her ad for President Obama, I have wanted to start watching her TV show.
That was the end of our trip, and we headed back to Rhode Island on a long bus ride, where we took shifts charging our phones since only a few of the outlets on the bus worked. Acacia, Sam, and I had a great time there, and we definitely want to go back! Maybe in the summer though, when it is warm and sunny! The weather was a bit dreary when we were there. Nevertheless, New York City is truly a wonderful city, and I love going there. I want to live there at some point…I am a big city person. I hope everyone has had a good start to the new year, and will continue to!
