Another New York City Visit – And How You Can Be a Part of It!

Unless the world comes to an end tomorrow, Nomi and I will be heading down to New York City on September 18 and returning to Boston on September 21.

The main impetus for the trip is that I'm taping an interview for the radio show Hour of the Wolf as part of the book tour for I Remember the Future. However, Nomi suggested that we turn it into a long weekend, and so we have.

Our schedule is a busy one. On Thursday night, we have tickets to South Pacific, and Friday of course is the radio interview. We're staying with our friends chaos_wrangler and G. over the weekend, and for shabbat, we're supposed to be visiting sdelmonte and batyatoon for lunch.

However, we do have some free time, and we'd like to invite people to join us if anyone's interested. Here's the deal.

Thursday afternoon:
Nomi and I are still trying to figure out what to do during this time. Our default is to catch the exhibits at the New-York Historical Society, but we're open to any other museum exhibits or anything else going on. Any suggestions? Anyone free to join us?

Friday afternoon:
During my interview taping, Nomi expects to be free, and she's looking for something to do or people to see. Then, after 2 pm or so, we'll be free together, with the only stipulation that we have to get back to our hosts' place before shabbat. Any ideas welcome. If nothing else comes to our minds, we'll probably hit a few bookstores...

Sunday lunch:
Nomi and I have decided to have lunch on Sunday in midtown Manhattan, as our train doesn't leave NYC until about 4 pm. We'd like to invite any and all who wish to join us to do so, but please let us know in advance so we can make an appropriate reservation. We're still working on which restaurant we want to patronize that day, and we're open to suggestions there too.
