    My favorite ballet dancer, Jose Manuel Carreno (aka the sex god) will be dancing his farewell performance this Thursday. As he is Cuban, I am compelled to eat Cuban food beforehand. If anyone would like to join me, please do! I will be eating (and drinking mojitos) somewhat early due to the 7:30 curtain.
    Also, if anyone is attending ABT on Saturday evening, or if you would just like to have dinner, we could do a meet-up dinner then.

    Alas, I am not going to Jose's farewell, but I am going on Saturday evening. Perhaps a meet-up then.

    After watching Born to be Wild: The Leading Men of American Ballet Theatre last week, I can appreciate the huge loss that Marge is dealing with. JMC is magnificent.

    I wish I could join you all to send him off in style.

    Enjoy? I am in 15 times depressions. Jose was my single horse in the barn, and now I am tempted to drink 40 beer. In fact, I may end up in the psychic hospital. At least I did not find a single earring in the bed...:)

    I didn't mean to make little of your pain... :)

    Enjoy the performance, as I'm sure he'll kick ass.
    And, if anything, those mojitos will help you get through the night.

    I wish I could eat Cuban food with you, but alas, this is my last week of class, and I think I'm taking the final on Thursday early evening. Sucks, because I'd much rather be mojito-ing.

    We can set up another date for mojito-ing. (have we invented a new verb?)
    Would anyone be interested in another get-together later on? :)

    Jose's farewell was sold out, but when I checked ABT's website earlier, there were some seats available in the orchestra and dress circle.

    Why don't we try to plan something for a Friday or Saturday evening in July or August? We can figure out a day that works for everyone.
    Last year I had suggested a picnic in the park, but it didn't meet with much entusiasm. Is anyone enthused this year? :)

    I reviewed the farewell in the other thread.
    If anyone is attending on Saturday and wants to have dinner first, or meet up at intermission, let me know.
    I am planning to stop off at Magnolia Bakery beforehand, I must sample one of their "swan" cupcakes. :lol: If anyone wants me to fetch them a cupcake, post here, and we can have dessert during intermission.

    Sure. ETA: We could meet ahead of time, if you have any place in mind for dinner. I could be up for that.

    I vote for Cara Mia; pick a time and I'll be there. We just need to allow enough time for me to get up to Lincoln Center afterwards as I don't walk all that well.

    Ooh, you went with my favorite. The food's really good, ditto for the service. The curtain is at 8, does 6PM work for dinner? We can hop a cab up to LC if you don't want to walk there.
    If you want to make it a different time, just let me know. I'm going to check if the Magnolia inside Grand Central has the swan cupcakes. I suspect they don't, however, so I'll go to the one on Columbus before dinner.
    If anyone wants to join us, or wants me to bring them a cupcake, post here!

    Sounds good!

    Alert! David is injured and will be replaced by Marcelo in the evening SL w/ Polina.
    If anyone wants to see Jose one last time, he is replacing Marcelo in the matinee.
    I admit I'm tempted....but 2 SL's in one day is a little much.

    Ladies, I'm so sorry but my job hates me and has dumped work on me. I'll be reviewing agreements until shortly before curtain. Life as a lawyer, I guess :mad::mad::mad:

    Can I meet you at the intermission?

    Eys! Come up (or down) to the back of the dress circle. I will be wearing gray trousers and carrying a Magnolia bakery box. If you fail to claim your cupcake there will be an extra one for me. :lol::lol::lol:
