A Travel Day

The 3 Gladeskateers left The Glade at 10 a.m. headed for New York City.  I had planned to make our first stop breakfast but unfortunately the place I chose stopped serving breakfast at 10 and didn’t serve lunch until 11.

So we jumped back on the highway northbound.

We stayed at The Benjamin which I had stayed at before when it was called The Beverly.

After checking into our hotel we headed to the theatre district.

We had tickets for Wicked which started at 8 and ended about 10:45.

From the Gershwin Theatre we walked north 3 blocks to a cabaret at Feinstein’s 54 Below.

We strolled back to the hotel at 1:30 a.m. east on 50th Street passing Rockefeller Center on the way.

I’ll leave the details until later. Now we’re just trying to get a little shut eye to prepare us for tomorrow’s extravaganza.

Do you have a favorite musical?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.
