    NYC get-together (pre-ballet)

    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.

    I can't make it into the city during the week, but I'd definitely be interested in another get together .

    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?

    Article about Jose in yesterday's Daily News. Doesn't he have a beautiful smile?

    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. If anyone wants me to fetch them a cupcake, post here, and we can have dessert during intermission.

    I'll be there Saturday; I'm sitting up in the dress circle. What about you?
