NYC Trip

On the spur of the moment, and partly in celebration of Ricks and Kathy's upcoming birthdays, Rick and Gitte suggested that we join them on a quick jaunt to New York City.  We talked to them on Friday at lunch, and by dinnertime that evening we had arranged cat sitting and were on our way to Park Ridge, NJ, where we spent two nights.  In between we took the bus to Port Authority and played in Manhattan.  We visited the crafts fair in Bryan Park, gawked like the tourists we were at Times Square and Rockefeller Center, had martinis at the Westin, and dinner at a very nice Brazilian restaurant (how many in a brazilion?).

Surrounded by brunches at the hotel in Park Ridge, we certainly consumed way too many calories, but we did have a great time.  Here's some evidence.
