I woke up on Thursday morning to tackle travel hiccup #2 - I was scheduled to be on the Amtrak Northeast Corridor from DC to NYC, however, the tracks were closed from the train derailment two days earlier (thankfully my trip was not two days earlier or I could have been in real trouble). I ended up having to take a quick flight from Dulles to JFK but I made it to the Big Apple, where I met up with my mother, Scooter, Erika, and Molly. I took absolutely zero photos that day, but we all cleaned ourselves up and had cocktails at The Standard, dinner to Gotham Bar & Grill (new favorite NYC restaurant), and after dinner cocktails at McSorley's, McGee's, and McAler's. Bed time was 4:00 AM.
The next day, I woke up and met up with Manhattan's newest resident - Alison Guerrero - for a lunch time beer. After the drinks, I met up with the family at the Boathouse in Central Park for lunch. It was an absolutely gorgeous day in New York.
After lunch we battled some serious traffic, but we successfully ended up at Penn Station to board the Long Island Railroad - we would spend the rest of the weekend in Montauk for my cousin Henry's wedding. The weather was absolutely perfect, it was great to spend some time with the entire Bowe side of the family, and I think we can all say we had an awesome time!
From New York, I am crossing the border where the baseball adventures start. Next time from Toronto....
