I woke up at 7:00am, and I was out the door by 8:00am to catch a train to New York City. Once I got there, I hiked over from Grand Central Station to Penn Station (a couple miles).
At Penn Station, I met with a friend of mine, and we wandered around in the general direction of Times Square. We eventually found a place to eat lunch, some funky little burger and steak place. It wasn't too bad, though, although the service was slow.
After eating, we started off for the Nederlander theater, where "Rent" was playing. Unfortunately, we discovered as we arrived where we thought it was that her map was wrong. So I made a quick call to 411, got the addressed, managed to guess where it was, and we walked in just 7 minutes before the show started.
Rent was awesome. A really, really, good show. Even better than I'd expected. Especially (for anyone who's seen it with the current cast) the Mooing girl. She kicked much booty on her solo part. Lots of fun. ;-)
After the show, we hung out for a little while, then both went to our respective train stations and headed home.
Once I got home, I had just enough time to run to my car, drive hurriedly, and head towards the Poughkeepsie Galleria mall, where I was meetihg with some other friends to see "The Fast and the Furious". I managed to make it there with 12 minutes to spare, so I ran over to the Mall's food court and grabbed some food. There's a place there, called the Cajun Cafe. The food they serve is horrible cajun food, but it's great chinese food. So, I grabbed some of that, wolfed it down in 4 minutes, and ran back to the theater just in time to see one of the people I was meeting walk around a corner down the hall. ;-)
After the movie ended, we went to a little bar & restaurant place down the street to hang out for a while. It was one of the most bizarre, and fun, experiences I've had in a while there. Some of the people that worked there were getting trashed, and providing entertainment, and some of the people in our group were. . . adding to it. ;-)
I finally managed to arrive home somewhere around 2:30am. It was a good day. ;-)
 Review coming up in another entry, shortly. ;-)
