We were going to get rolling early from the Fur Peace Ranch yesterday morning but the bus wouldn’t start. Ever taking the more optimistic view, we loaded up and by the time everything was on board… it started. Hmmm….
Vanessa and Izze were on board for this leg of the trip. This doesn’t happen often, so I as really looking forward to it.
There’s nothing like a Cracker Barrel stop at least once in every road trip… and here’s ours!
Moving right along… we got to the George Washington Bridge about 2230 and if I’d been paying attention to 1010 WINS, I would have known about the construction. Anyway, two hour later we got to our hotel in Manhattan. Good times in traffic!
This morning we had an interview to tape at ABC radio with Matt Friedlander. After this I went back to the hotel for a bit and the Phil and I took the train downtown to Rockefeller Plaza where Vanessa and Izze were ice skating.
After the gals got done with the ice, we walked around Manhattan for a while.
Yeah, it’s starting to get pretty whacked out on the streets here, but for an out of towner it’s a lot of fun.
With hunger overtaking us, we decided on Joe’s Shanghai for some soup dumplings and dinner. Delicious indeed. Now back at the hotel, it’s time to contemplate the set lists for the gig tomorrow at the Institute For Ethical Culture. Saturday night, of course, is the Beacon Theater.
Hope to see lots of you at both places.
