So the other day we went to the city to see
The Nutcracker at the New York City Ballet. We went with Thisbe and the Wee Kraken and had a fabulous time (despite the fact that due to the Job we didn't arrive until half-way through the first act, thus totally missing our lunch plans at Rosa Mexicano (boooooooo!)
I think the ladies enjoyed the performance, and I *know* that they enjoyed hanging out and playing by the fountain afterwards!
I've been to the performance before Christmas once before, and this time we hit it up after the holidays-- it was a bit more laid back and it was really nice.
The only downside? We saw a really big rat in the Quik Park parking garage under Lincoln Center on our way back to the car. Up side, it was a very large, healthy looking, clean rat, but a rat nonetheless. Hmpf.
