On one of D’s recent post-call days, he decided to take a break from studying and we ventured out to explore this wonderful city in which we live.
First stop: the Cloisters. Last summer while on a road trip with my brother, we listened to the History of the World in 100 Objects from the British Museum. One of the objects were the Lewis Chessmen, discovered on the Isle of Lewis off of Scotland in 1831. They are currently on loan to the Met and are on display at the Cloisters. I was pretty darn excited to see these, especially given that I don’t even know how to play chess.
Second stop: Well, we did come back to our apartment for an early dinner and some reading before we headed off to our
Third stop: Avenue Q! The ridiculous musical with very inappropriate puppets! It was fantastic. The subway gods were lookin’ out for us and we arrived plenty early to the theatre, so after picking up our tickets we found a cute little market where we shared coffee and a cupcake.
