After the week at CES in Las Vegas we thought it appropriate to enjoy a few days off in cool New York. It turned out to be very cool indeed with lots of snow and chilly winds but hey, New York is New York and you can have a great time whatever the weather. And we sure did.
One of the nights, we thought we might splash out a bit and went to see Italian opera tragedy, Rigoletto, and we thoroughly enjoyed it.
We managed to get a snapshot at the end even though no cameras are allowed.
If you go for a few of the delicious oysters, followed by New England Clam Chowder, together with a pint of Brooklyn Lager, you’re not only getting a proper taste of local specialities, you also get it all for around 25 bucks (including tax and tip)!
I must also say that the oysters are also some of the best we ever tasted.
New York is probably one of the best places for live music. We had such a good time listening to this fella, Chilly Gonzales. He’s a sort of stand up comedy rapper on a grand piano that often performs in a smoking robe. We caught him at Joe’s Pub, where he called his show a ‘Piano Talk Show’ which pretty much sums his style up. Definitely worth checking out if you get the chance.
More stuff from NY coming soon.
