Throwback Thursday: NYC For A Night

Well, the last-minute laundry is finishing up and the bed is covered in clothes ready to be stuffed in a suitcase and placed on a plane heading to Europe! That's right, folks...Ryan and I are leaving the country Saturday night for 7 days of fun and exploration all over Ireland! 

While I wait for our clothes to dry, I thought I would participate in a little Throwback Thursday action by reminiscing on our fun one-night trip to NYC this past June. 

Every once in a while, I get to tag along with Ryan to work events and outings. While my favorite experience so far is our trip to the US Open a couple Septembers ago, this most recent outing is pretty dang high up on the list. This time around, I got to fill an extra seat at a Yankees game, and man, was that a pretty awesome seat to fill! Since we were going to be making the 4 1/2 hour drive in to NYC, we decided to make the most of it and stay the night. 

We got into Yankee Stadium about an hour before the game started. Our seats gave us access to the Legends Suite, where we were able to stuff our faces with some unbelievable food before hitting up the candy bar on the way out. 

If you look closely in the above picture, you can see Ryan's plate stacked a mile high with crab legs and other goodies. Meanwhile, I've got a little surf and turf going on on my own plate. Steak and Sushi for the win! 

We spent the next few hours baking in the sun watching some baseball before heading into Manhattan to check in to our hotel for the night and rest up before hitting the town! 

For dinner, Ryan and I decided to check out Ruby Foo's, right off of Times Square.

We were both still pretty full from the game so we ordered a couple of appetizers to share, which were delicious if I recall correctly. 

After dinner, we walked over to our evening entertainment of choice, the Broadway Comedy Club. We tried to get tickets to a broadway show, but the ones we really wanted to see were either sold out completely or sold out of the tickets that we could afford! The comedy club turned out to be fun though and we got to watch four different comedian's sets.

To finish off our night, we scoped out a rooftop bar off Times Square for a little while, taking in the gorgeous night!

This was such a fun little trip to kick our summer off! Thanks Dow for taking care of the spouses every once in a while!!
