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.

After CES earlier this year we went to New York for a few days and re-discovered how easy it is to find good live music. There are loads of incredibly talented artists playing every night of the week in this city.
After a nice authentic NYC dinner at the classical institution Peter Luger Steakhouse in Brooklyn, we arrived quite late at the Terra Blues Club in Greenwich Village. Having eaten a good chunk of delicious meat we were in the best of moods. We got a table, ordered a few beers and then the music started. What a shock – we were totally blown away by this guitarist and his trio. Loud, long, powerful jamming tunes that sometimes went from one song and seamlessly changed over to another one. Suddenly a trumpetist arrived at the dark stage playing a solo – and this underlined the openness of the music.
Zine Noodles Dim Sum, a favourite for a quiet lunch in one of the neighbouring resorts to the Venetian, Palazzo Resort.
So, the show is over and we left sunny Las Vegas for cool New York
