Goodbye NY

Haven't had much to blog about in the last few days as we have been winding down our NY operations. Today we get on a bus that will hopefully get us to Philadelphia. We got a hot tip from a Chinese couple that the cheapest way to get to Philly or DC was to catch a bus from Chinatown. They weren't wrong. $13 dollars each and free wifi on the bus.

Highlights from the last few days include:

  • The Smoke Joint - Totally awesome BBQ place that we had already been to but the kids wanted to try it. Some of the best baby back ribs I have ever tasted. Corn bread ruled too. B even got a hotdog with extra roast beef on top. Totally Rad.
  • Chelsea Piers - I took the kids out for the day while M stayed home to pack. Its a massive sports complex with a heap of different things you can do. The main thing we wanted to try was the baseball batting cages. We all had heaps of fun swinging at the balls flying at us from the pitching machine. I was pretty much amazing. If I don't come home its because I have a new job, probably hitting home runs for the Yankees. Hopefully they had scouts watching me. We also had lunch at Chelsea Brewing Company. Its a special kind of dad that takes his kids to a microbrewery for lunch.
  • Times Square - One more time to pick up a few more things. Also had to hit up M & M World one more time. I don't think I would ever get sick of coming out of the subway and seeing all the lights and giant screens. So much colour and so much to look at. Have been in a few times and every time, I see something new.

Currently listening to: a jazz trio that we saw at brunch today
