Stardust Memories: Back From New York City

Great visit with Neil, Scott, and Adam this past weekend. To the Metropolitan Museum of Art with Neil (walked from 47th & Park to 80th & 5th) for Poussin & Courbet show. Spent several hours at the Museum of Modern Art with Scott (with special attention to Chagalls, Van Gogh's, etc.), then leisure walk through Central Park. Sunday afternoon at the Music Box Theatre with Adam for a marvelous production of August: Osage County, followed by food at The Red Flame Restaurant and a visit with the Algonquine cat Matilda in the hotel lobby.

All enjoyed together our late Saturday afternoon dinner at O'Neal's Restaurant while bitterly sweetly over the bar we watched the Kentucky Derby drama/trauma.

Overall wonderful weekend.

(Also Neil and I hooked up with Alex & Michelle from Columbus for a snack at Ellen's Stardust Cafe.)
