Day Two: Good Night from New York

So, where did we leave off? Oh yeah, we just missed the storm.   Luckily, by the time the bus had got us to Planet Hollywood for dinner, the rain had died down to a light drizzle. 

Dinner consisted of three courses. The first was the salad course (choices were Caesar or Garden...not that there's that much of a difference...it's all rabbit food anyway) and bread. Course Two was the pasta dish, with both fettinci alfredo and spaghetti with marinara. Course three was chicken parmesan (though not for the vegetarians). And there was a massive slice of cheesecake for everyone for dessert. It was some decent food. Does dessert count as a fourth course? 

Next, we made our way to Dave and Busters at Times Square. The biggest problem with that was the lighting of the place makes it difficult to get a decent picture taken with my phone. Oh, and the allure of the games makes it incredibly difficult to care about that problem. 

And we played everything. Shooting zombies. Racing the Batmobile.  Wacking moles. Super Trivia. Basketball shooting games. Soccer kicking games. Helping Lara Croft Tomb Raider get to the coast, which in that video game, seemed very important to do. 

The Dave and Busters staff also provided our group with some great snacks, including fries, chicken nuggets, sliders, and mini pizzas (Chicago style though.  Mini Chicago pizzas in Times Square?  That struck me as gutsy.  Apparently, no is really too concerned with the on-going feud between New York style and Chicago style pizza).

Tomorrow is a much more serious day, as we will be visiting the 9/11 site and museum among the many activities. Even our Broadway Show is 9/11 themed entitled Come From Away. It is the story of all the planes that were rerouted to Gander Newfoundland when the FAA grounded all flights on that horrendous day in 2001.  It's supposed to be quite riveting. 

Until tomorrow...
