Last weekend for Jimmy’s birthday we went to see Bruce Springsteen on Broadway. I had never seen him but have been a fan forever but Jimmy has seen him a couple of times many many years ago. We stayed at the Warwick which I highly recommend it. It is in a great location and a very comfortable hotel. My only complaint is no coffee pot in the room.The first night we went to see the musical called Beautiful about Carole King. It was very entertaining and great music. We ate at Benjamin’s steakhouse before that. It was delicious and a very New York type steakhouse. That afternoon we had taken an Uber to Chelsea market and Highline. We could have spent a lot more time there. It was very crowded on a Friday afternoon but we enjoyed walking around.On Saturday we went to the 911 museum. We just did the general admission tickets and stayed about two hours. We could have stayed longer. It was fascinating. I learned a lot and it is a very well-done museum. I highly recommend it. Then we went to Eataly . It is a block away from 911. It was fabulous, we tasted a lot of foods and bought a few items to come home with.Saturday night we ate at Osteria Del Og. It is an Italian restaurant in the theater district. We only had to walk a couple blocks to the show after that. We could have split the pizza and salad there. Everything was very homemade! Reservations recommended.We got to Bruce Springsteen on Broadway an hour early. People were lined up and waiting for him to pull up. So we waited for that across the street from the theater and watched that happen. After that We went through very thick security. Once inside We bought a few souvenirs and a bottled water and M and M‘s. Bruce came out right on time and immediately started playing acoustic guitar and piano and talking. It wasn’t like a Regular concert where you stand up and sing along. We loved it and cannot get over how close we were to him. Patty came out and did two songs with him. I highly recommend going to the Bruce Springsteen on Broadway show if you can get tickets. It is a very small theater and has a great acoustics. He signs autographs afterwards .The next morning we woke up and went to an open AA meeting at a Czech Presbyterian Church. It was very interesting. Then we went to Redeemer Church PCA and then after that we went to Sarabeth’s for brunch. We sat outside at Sarabeth’s! It was right across from Central Park and next to the Ritz.We then sadly returned home… we were there about 55 hours.
