On December 13, 2009, Terri, Kathy and I were to go to New York City to see our former high school classmates Off-Broadway show, Love, Loss, and What I Wore, but a snow storm changed our minds and sadly we had to postpone the trip till February 5, 2010.

We met up with Karen around 7 p.m. She took us to a fine French restaurant called Bistro Citron.
It was so delicious. There Karen and I split a bottle of Gigondas ($52 a bottle).

We relaxingly sat and enjoyed our meal and each other’s company. We caught up on the latest happenings in our corner of the world.

On Saturday morning Karen met us at our hotel and we walked over to Central Park. The day was chilly, but not too bad. We walked quite a ways before reaching the Central Park Beachhouse Cafe. The cafe is located by the pond. We had a wonderful brunch and then Karen needed to meet a friend to see a show and to talk to an actress about performing in her show, so we parted ways, but not without making plans to meet later.

While Karen was doing the things she had to do Kathy, Terri, Becky and I visited the American Museum of Natural History, the same place Ben Stiller filmed, Night at the Museum (I love that movie). The three of them toured the butterfly exhibit, while I toured the Silk Road. This exhibit detailed the history of the early silk trading route beginning in the Middle East to China.

We met Karen for dinner at a nice Italian restaurant off 42nd Street and afterwards went to see her show. The show was wonderful. We laughed & cried.

For a late night snack we went to the Cheesecake Factory. The weekend was wonderful and sharing it with friends made it all the more special!
