This is the last New York section now!
So, we were up to the last full day and we did a tour of Radio City Music hall, it was really good! It lasted just over an hour and the tour guide was knowledgable and so friendly. The place is huge! The foyer alone is so grand, the whole place was restored in 1999 but they’ve kept it looking old fashioned, it feels like you’ve gone back in time in there.
We went underneath the stage to see the hydraulic system that has been the same system since the 1930’s! My favourite part of the tour was The Rockettes! I want to be a Rockette! We went into the rehearsal studio and the barre is higher than a normal barre because they need to stretch for high kicks and… I could stretch on the barre! I plied on the Rockette’s barre, that is pretty cool.
We also met a Rockette and then I bought a Rockette top in the souvenir shop so I’m basically part of the troupe now.
After the tour we did a few more bars…
And we went to Macy’s and they had a shoe sale, I bought some shoes for $12! Reduced from $75 or something stupid like that. They’re nothing like my other shoes but they look like something Carrie would wear so they’re my SATC NYC shoes! Something about liking open toe/ strappy shoes makes me feel old! They’re the type of shoes my Mom used to wear, I always liked closed shoes but as I’ve got older I’ve changed! #CommitToTheShoe
On the evening we went back to McGees. My friend/ bridesmaid bought us dinner in there for our present. Monday is HIMYM night so it was the perfect end to our NY section of the honeymoon.
We had HIMYM themed cocktails and I got an… accidental penne in my spaghetti! I was so chuffed about that! There’s a scene where Barney talks about how the accidental curly fry in a portion of normal fries is the dream! It’s so funny.
Then the next morning it was bye bye New York and onto Viva Las Vegas. We got the subway to JFK airport, it costs around $7 each and takes about the same about of time as a cab which costs $60 so there’s a money saving tip for anyone planning a trip to NYC!
So next time I’ll move onto HIMYM Honeymoon – The Vegas Edition!
