NYC Day Three - Wow

Katie and I told each other that we weren't sitting in the room at all...we were going to walk and experience New York...rain, sun, or snow. Day Three so far has several checkmarks off the To-Do list.

If you're coming here to see pics of Bella, you can check in on her adventures over at Julie's Blog.
Here's a teaser...

Let's recap last night. As Katie mentioned below, we stood in the near-freezing rain for an hour to get half-priced musical tickets from TKTS in Times Square. It paid off as we were front and center for Cirque du Soleil - Wintuk last night.

It poured...terribly. As we walked off the subway at Madison Square Garden, the monsoon rain dominated our $5 umbrellas, and we sought refuge in a quaint restaurant called Stage Door. After dinner, I experimented with what it would feel like to be...older.

Then we crossed the street and entered into Madison Square Garden's WAMU Theater. And the night was made even more magical because Cirque figured out how to make it snow.

From there, Katie and I headed back up town to a bar right across the street from our condo, The Home Brew. It's a cool, underground sports bar, with tons of international beers. We stopped for a raspberry wheat beer, brewed in New York, and some potato skins.

DAY THREE

We thought we might try, at some point on the trip, to get on the Today Show. Honestly, I never thought Katie and I would be able to get out of bed. Somehow...we did. After hitting snooze 14 times, we rushed over to Rockefeller Center with a piece of pink poster board and a large photo of Bella in-hand (that Julie snuck in our luggage). One thing I didn't realize...only ladies go to the Today Show...so a 6-foot-something guy like me would have no problem skying over the women and children to get our sign on TV. Katie made a quick call to the McIver's just before the live shot for DVRing. And...the rest is history. My only regret...not having the presence of mind to call others...like ehem...my mother. Sorry mom!!

Enough talking...here are the pictures of Day Three (morning).
