New York - Days 3 & 4

So after five straight days of baseball, it was a little bit of change on my third day in New York.  Melissa and I got up, cleaned ourselves up (and we looked good if I may say so) and headed down to Broadway.  It happened to Melissa's parents' 35th wedding anniversary and I was invited to join in the celebration.  The first event was attending West Side Story (my first show on Broadway).  I really enjoyed the show and was very impressed with all of the performers...Maria was pretty hot!

Following the performance we walked to midtown for a fantastic dinner at Fresco by Scoto - a restaurant that Melissa's dad has frequented.  To be honest, I was nervous to meet Melissa's family but by the end of the night I had a fantastic time with Melissa, her parents, and extended family!  On top of that the entire meal was great, which I topped off with my first glass of Grappa (wow!).

After dinner, Melissa's family had to head back "upstate" but Melissa and I were far from done - we walked to the The Oak Room at the Plaza for a couple of drinks.  Unfortunately, I did not get to meet the infamous bartender Orlando but it was a great time nonetheless. 

We then met up with the rest of the crew in Sojo and then finished the night with a few drinks in the East Village.

Sunday morning rolled around and it was finally time to head back reality. Thanks Melissa for the hospitality and awesome time!
