The Weather/Last Night’s Concert/Today’s Off Broadway Show/Yankees

Saturday==>Weather Gods, what is it with the f**king weather? I mean, seriously, at 8:00am this morning here in The Big Apple, The Greatest City In The World, it was a rather blustery 56º. 56º??? 

It is the 24th of May, Weather Gods, not September!! It is time for me to put away my sweaters and jackets and break out the Tees and shorts ... come on ... enuff is enuff already!!

Anyway ... moving on to ...

Billi Pod’s report on last night’s classical music concert ... 


The program included performances by: 

Alice High School Honors Band; Del Mar Master Chorus; Corpus Christi Chorale; and, KHORIKOS.

The evening was enjoyable but not mind-blowing.

My comp. seat was excellent, in the main orchestra area, row K, house left.

I would estimate that Carnegie Hall was only about 40% full and that felt a bit awkward to me.

I got to the Carnegie Hall area early so I could have a nice walk and wander session before the concert. Had planned to walk back to the apartment when the concert was over, but it was raining, so I just subwayed back.

Tonight’s entertainment event is an Off Broadway show ...

7:30==>JUST JIM DALE - “This solo show recounts a lifetime of irresistible showbiz tales, told through incredible stories and beloved songs from a legend who shares his passion for the stage, for storytelling and for making people laugh.” (Off Broadway - complimentary ticket)

The show is in early previews, opens on June 12th, is playing at The Laura Pels Theatre on West 46th Street, has a running time of 1:40, without intermission (I think), and runs through August 10th.

My theater-buddies who have seen this show have all liked it, so I am looking forward to tonight’s performance.

Moving on to some sports ... 

Was back in PHC last night in time to catch the last 4-innings of the YANKEES/WHITE SOX game in Chicago and what a total BUMMER.

The Yankees lost 6-5 in the bottom of the 9th when our closer, David Robertson, gave up a 2-run walk-off homer. Barf!!

This afternoon at 2:10pm is game 3 of the 4-game series. On the mound for the Yankees (24-23) will be Vidal Nuno (1-1) vs. John Danks (3-4) for The Sox (25-25).

Folks, we are now 1/3 of the way through the season and the term that appears most often in the local powers about The Wankies is==>MEDIOCRE<==and I totally agree.

Yes, my loyal and faithful readers and followers, unless something dramatic happens soon it is going to be a long and disappointing season.

Oh, well ... 

Closing on a happy note ... yesterday was an excellent walking day.

Yesterday’s Pedometer mileage==>5.03 miles (or, 10,995 steps)

Total mileage for 2014==>521.55 miles (average 3.65 miles per day)
