We've made it to Day 2! Hurrah!
Today was an exciting day. We started out with some Go-Tarts, a combination of Gobots and Pop-Tarts. Mine was strawberry. We ended up hitting the American Museum of Natural History, which has an entire floor dedicated to dinosaur fossils. I got to rub some dinosaur bone - you know what I'm talking about. We skimmed the other three floors of the museum, because we had other shit to do, like eat pizza at John's Pizzeria.
John's Pizzeria is supposedly one of the Top 10 pizza places in New York. As a pizza connoisseur, I'd have to give it 8 slices out of 10. Since we were on Bleeker street at this point, we decided to Mac on some Cupcakes at the Magnolia Bakery. Hey, it's in SNL's Lazy Sunday, so we had to hit it.
We took our first Subway ride today. It wasn't anything like I'd expected. For instance, did you know that the Subway is like a monorail that runs underground?! Unbelievable!
We also saw an artist on the Subway. He had some pictures of sandwiches. So basically, we saw an actual Subway Sandwich Artist.
We stopped at the Dakota, where John Lennon lived and was shot. I stood on the place where he took his last breath. I gently hummed Strawberry Fields Forever, then couldn't get the Elmo Song out of my head for the rest of the day.
Next we went to Chelsea Market, where Rachel Ray and Emeril film their Food Network shows, and we did it in 30 minutes or less. Bam! We also went to see The Daily Show with John Stewart. Adam Sandler was the guest. If you watch the rerun on Friday, you can hear me call out, "You can do it!" several times before security escorts me out.
We ate at The Eatery, not knowing what to expect. Luckily they had food. Then we had coffee and dessert at Maison, a couple of blocks from Time Square. We missed K-Fed, so I couldn't mug him for pennies.
Tomorrow we are going to the Guggenheim, the MoMA, and Rockefeller Center. We're also planning to start out the day with some bagels.
One last thing: I would like to dispel the myth of "the Dirty Jew." All of the Jews we saw, met and spoke to were very clean and polite. Did I mention it costs over a buck for tap water at restaurants?
