We decided to take a break in the cocktail lounge and enjoy our chance to walk out on a bar tab with permission. Again we were doted on. The staff came over and sat with us while asking to hear all about the Housewife Heroes contest. They oohed and aahed over the prize package and were very excited that we were meeting Melissa Gorga.
On our way to Rockefeller Plaza, we had a photo-op in front of policemen riding horses.
Unfortunately, “riding the horse” made me think of the Gangnam style video.
I guess I had too many of those Christmas tree drinks…
Decided it was a good idea to get some food in our bellies so we took a taxi to Lombardi’s. Jimmy and Jake had very similar responses when we told them we ate the oldest pizza in the US.
“That must have tasted rotten.” “Was the cheese green?”
Speaking of green stuff, Rockefeller Plaza was just gorgeous! Although you couldn’t really tell it was a green tree under all the lights.
The bar could make a TON of drinks with all these branches.
(Before you think I’m completely ditzy, I DO realize it was a rosemary sprig in my drink. But, naturally, I had to seize any opportunity for a joke.)
I decided to stay off the ice. Weak cheeks do run in our family after all (Remember, “A Pain in the Coccyx?“). I didn’t need a pain in the butt during lunch with Melissa. But Jim came anyway. Ba-Dum-Ching. (Sorry Jim, I couldn’t resist.)
We did some window shopping.
Up next “NYC Part 3 – In The Lyme Light.” What lunch with a celeb is REALLY like.
