I did NOT have what she was having unfortunately
The pickles were FANTastic!
Matt and the Wall of Fame
Very popular joint!
Our get out of jail free card. Well maybe more like 20 bucks.
We decided to make our way toward the Guggenheim but not before a little more lower Manhattan meandering. We stopped into the Morrison Hotel Gallery which had an exhibit of rock photos by Lynn Goldsmith but no photos were allowed inside. Booo
After that we hopped a train and headed uptown stopping in at Bloomies and then a few galleries before making it to the Guggenheim which was CLOSED! FAIL. Fine, on to the Met then! Obviously there is no lack of cultural opportunity here in the city. We saw a great exhibit on guitars and then split up to roam the halls for our own interests. I headed for the Arms and Armor section because I am OBSESSED with the Tudors. The Showtime miniseries has me hook, line and sinker. I had seen the knights in armor on horses once before and knew I wanted to go back but now it was with fervor and I was duly rewarded. There in the Met is actual armor of Henry VIII. Mind you, it was later in his life so it was quite large but stunning none the less.
What exactly is that pointy thing for?
I love this stuff.
Even the horses had amazing armor!
We left the Met and headed across town to hit H&H bagels and Zabar's before parting ways. I was off to the Film Festival and Matt was off to hang with Derik before heading back to the OC It was great getting to see him. It always helps with the rare bout of home sickness to see old friends from the CA.
