I’m not sure it is possible to run out of things to do in NYC?

Date night? What to do…

So we caught the train in to *beautiful* Penn Station. We almost missed the train but the conductor held the train for us as we sprinted from the car park. That never happens! We were off to a lucky start!

We walked along the new section of the highline and walked over the new section which gives you a cool view of Penn Station.

We stopped in to a random hotel – The Jane Hotel – for a quick drink. Only to find out that the hotel is modelled on a boat and that it was the hotel that housed the servivors from the Titanic. Very cool! Apparently the standard-sized rooms are so small that they only sleep one person as they are modelled on ship cabins. Sounds luxurious! We stuck to the luxiourously furnished bar…

After which, inspired by watching Master Chef with the kids, we went in search of Manhattan’s best Beef Wellington (which was one of the Master Chef challenges and is also a specialty of Gordon Ramsey. Ultimately it wasn’t the best Beef Wellington, but it was a gorgeous little Romantic spot with live piano music for dinner.

As we were finishing dinner we learnt that had won the Jersey Boys lottery ($27 for tickets in the third row!!! YAY!) so we hot-tailed it up to Time Square for the show. It was a fun show with lots of great New Jersey references.

    I wish we had you with us to win the lottery, it was a great show and well worth the full price (in the gods!) though
    Love to all
