I seriously love having my iphone! Anthony makes fun of me when I have my iphone in one hand and my camera in the other. There is something about the ease of the iphone (and I love being able to tweet & facebook the photos to make everyone jealous of our adventures!!)
Friday night we had dinner at Caliente Cab Co. in Greenwich Village. Yum-O! When we were walking to Caliente from the subway we say the wafels and dinges truck parked (dinges are the toppings you put on your Belgian wafel). It rang a bell and then it dawned on us they were on Throwdown with Bobby Flay. So on the way back from dinner we stopped for our desert. And I cannot go into NYC without stopping at Crumbs Bakery!
Here is the good part and where our luck changed! Anthony and I went to the matinee of Promises, Promises. As we were walking to our hotel we “passed” (being a relative term since its on a street we weren’t walking down – but I saw the sign) by the Wicked theater. On a whim I said, let’s try to get tickets to see Wicked tonight. We walked down to the theater to see a line forming. We got in line and I asked the 4 high school kids in front me of what the line was for (being so naive!). They told me it was for the lottery and that was about it. Then I overheard two guys behind us chatting about if they should stay in line or not. I turned around to ask them how it worked. They said how there are 14 pairs of tickets up for grabs at each performance. So we waited in line for 15 minutes, put our name in the drum, waited 30 minutes, and slowly they began calling names. AND MY NAME WAS CALLED!!!!!!! I was in shock, then elated, then tears began welling because I just WON the incredibly tough Wicked lottery. The middle photo is me after we were up with the other winners. And then the following photo are all the losers. We spent $52.50 for two 2nd row seats! Totally the best night I’ve had in a really long time. And don’t tell anyone that I took iphone photos of the stage and final bows.
