The first day we went to a taping of the Daily Show. We had VIP seats thanks to Jenna. Afterward we were able to tour the studio and offices. Pretty cool! The next day we met up with our friends Zack and Brenda. We went to a place called the burger joint. It's hidden in this fancy hotel, no signs for it, nothing. It was delicious. We hung out with them for a while and looked at sights and went up to a revolving restaurant to see the city. That night we hung out at Qudoba where there were free refills with Jenna and Chuck. Clay must have drunk a gallon of Coke.
On Saturday we stood in line to win the lottery tickets for Wicked! There was a huge group of people wanting to win them, but we actually won them! We couldn't believe how lucky we were. We paid $25 to see the most sought after show and sat in the second row. The show was unbelievable. I got emotional throughout it. Later that night (Valentines Day) Jenna showed us around the the village where we ended up at Five Guys burgers and again drunk a gallon of coke. On Sunday we went to church, met up with friends again for a few hours, then made dinner for Jenna and Chuck.
On Monday we woke up late then decided to tour around the east village. There were so many cool little shops. Then we ran into a candy store called Economy Candy. They had such fun candy at a very affordable price. It was really fun to look around and buy a few things. Then we went to this place where they serve deep fried hot dogs. Clay got the BLT hot dog. It was wrapped in bacon then deep fried covered in lettuce, tomato, mayo, and mustard. It was delicious. I know, crazy. We had an amazing time in New York. It was just what we needed before baby number two comes in a short two months. This wouldn't have been possible without Janae, Jenna, and Chuck. Thanks again!
