Friday==>Good morning and TGIF to all of my loyal and faithful readers and followers out there in the boondocks, hinterlands and wastelands, including all of my Worker Bee friends brooding and counting down in their cubicles, desks, wait-stations, broom closets, etc.
Your favorite blogger is still glowing in happiness regarding the wonderful news about John Scott Reed and his upcoming new adventure with Facebook.
Please see today’s earlier posting for all of the wonderful details.
Now, about last night's entertainment event ...
I am happy to report that last night’s concert, the NEW YORK PHILHARMONIC @ Avery Fisher Hall, was excellent, as usual.
The highlight of the evening for me was the final number, Stravinsky’s "The Firebird Suite."
The weather was nasty so I didn’t walk home following the concert as I usually do. In fact, the weather was yucky for the entire day and most of my walking was accomplished in The Port Authority Bus Terminal.
What was also yucky==>the YANKEE/OAKLAND game, which the Wankies lost in 18, yes, that’s correct, 18 innings by a score of 3-2. The game personified the season thus far ... good pitching but woefully inept hitting, especially with runners in scoring position.
The following headline in the sports section of The New York Post pretty much sums it up ...
“LONG DAY’S JOURNEY INTO BLIGHT. Yanks bats go flat in 18-inning L.”
With the win The A’s swept the 3-game series, sending the reeling Wankies to LA for a 3-game series against The Angels, beginning at 10:05pm EST.
On the mound for The Wankies will be Andy Pettitte (5-3) vs. C.J. Wilson (4-5) for The Angels.
Moving on to something positive ...
At 5:30pm I will meet up with my theater-buddy Dian Crystal aka My Lady at Joe Allen on Restaurant Row where we will use a voucher she was given when she attended a recent taping of the Katie Couric Show.
Then we will leisurely walk across town to Midtown East where we will go bare ...
8:00==>BARE: THE MUSICAL - “A contemporary rock musical that follows a group of teens wrestling with issues of identity, sexuality, and religion at a co-ed Catholic boarding school.” (Off Broadway - complimentary ticket)
I saw this terrific show in December 2012 when it was playing at New World Stages and gave it an A. It is now playing at The York Theatre as part of a fund-raising program for the Trinity Place Shelter, a transitional shelter for homeless LGBTQ youth.
OK, my loyal and faithful readers and followers, I feel the need to post this and then do some walking and wandering ... so ...
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND EVERYONE!!
