Day 12: Extra Day in NY

I started the day by watching the USA - Slovenia World Cup Match at a local establishment. One of the coolest kids that I ever taught was a foreign exchange student from Slovenia, Ursa Jovanovich.
The game was depressing at first as it appeared that after 4 years of hard work and high expectations, the USA team would end up like Casey at the Bat. However, the mighty Americans rallied to tie the game and (as Jesse Jackson would say) "Keep hope alive."

After the soccer, Jeannie and I went through Bryant Park on the way to the subway station.

A beautiful park.

We caught the subway to go see Cindy's delightful daughter Meagan who works in the personal shopper department at Bergdorf Goodman. This is a room of clothes that Meagan set up for a shopper who was coming a little later in the day.
Meagan showed us around the store and a highlight was when she introduced us to James, a BG doorman who was in a scene of "Sex and the City 2." A veritable movie star.

Thank you Meagan; it was great to see you, and thank you for recommending Broadway's "Rock of Ages." It was great.
After BG, Jeannie and I went across the street to The Plaza for lunch at a new restaurant operated by famous chef Todd English.

After lunch, I watched the Germany-Serbia World Cup game, and Jeannie went to check out Hell's Kitchen.
We met up at the discount show ticket place in Times Square.
John helped us understand the procedure, and we got two tickets to "Rock of Ages."

I just need to put tkts on my shirt, and I am ready to go to work.

Before the show, we went to equivalent of Yankee Stadium for Jeannie -- The Magnolia Bakery.
A Magnolia Bakery cupcake -- yum.

Then, on to the show.
Although the show started slowly, it turned out to be great, probably especially great for
anyone who was a teenager in the 1980s.
On Saturday, we get up early to drive to Washington for a 4:00 p.m. game.
