    I know, I know....but my work schedule keeps interfering.
    I'm off on Sunday, so theoretically I could go then. But I have a ballet matinee at 3 PM. If I end up falling in, I won't be very presentable for Lincoln Center.

    If you fall in, go get immunizations!

    If I fall in, I will probably wash ashore in New Jersey.
    I am not a very good swimmer, though I can dog-paddle and stay afloat.

    I did the candlelight ghost tour last October and enjoyed it, even though no real ghosts showed up.

    I went to the Betrayal preview night. As I was waiting to go in, saw Diane Sawyer (wife of The director Mike Nichols) entering backstage. If there were any hiccups, it actually didn't seem too noticeable since certain scenes should feel awkward (i.e. two ex lovers meeting for the first time after a few years or two best friends having lunch with one sleeping with the other's wife and that person knowing about the affair).

    Open House NY is this month. I've been going to visit sites on their list since they started this - it's way cool. You need to register in advance for some of the tours, so have a look at the schedule:

    I saw that as "bulldog" tacos.

    I got an "insider invitation" today for a Flamenco event at the Society of Illustrators, which I posted about awhile back. It's a pretty cool place and admission is free, so you should check them out.
    Anyway, the event, which is not listed on their website: there will be a performance of the Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana company on Oct 25th, at 6 PM. I saw this company at the Joyce Theatre a few months back, and they were awesome. I have other plans on the 25th, but if anyone else is interested, the cost is $75 and includes tapas and the performance, only 75 tickets are being sold. The phone # to order is 212-736-4499
    The Society has lots of other stuff going on, info here:

    I was in the East Village yesterday and came across this place, S'Mac:
    http://www.smacnyc.com/eastvillage.html

    Confession: I love macaroni and cheese. I rarely ate this growing up; my mom was Italian and thought m&c was sacreligious. However, once in awhile she would make it because my dad liked it. So I saw this as an exotic treat.
    Anyway, if you like m&c, get thee to S'Mac, the stuff is divine.

    Oh, I love this place! I used to order from it all the time when I lived at NYU. The Alpine and the Buffalo Chicken are my favorite. You can also get the take and bake and cook it at home.

    Cafeteria in Chelsea also has great Mac & Cheese. There is also a sampler where you can try several different kinds at once.

    I also discovered a fantastic hair salon in the EV, Hair Kuwayama:
    http://hairkuwayama.com/
    I wasn't looking for a hair place while I was out, but I was in dire need of a haircut, so when I passed this place I walked in on a whim. It was not cheap, but I got a great cut and I really liked the atmosphere. Very peaceful and "zen". Even if everyone who was in there was slim and gorgeous and under 25.

    I was in Chelsea Market yesterday and made a pleasant discovery (well, 2, actually) Chelsea Wine Vault now has 1 hour, weekend wine tasting classes for only $20. I attended one of their regular weekday tastings 2 years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. Info here:
    http://www.chelseawinevault.com/wws

    The other discovery: who sent me to the Fat Witch bakery? I don't know whether to thank you or curse you. I was all set to buy ONE brownie, but the clerk informed me that they were half price after 6 PM. So of course I got 2, and of course I ate both.
    The caramel was my favorite.

    I'll be up at Columbia U this Friday morning, then down to 53rd. Any good, casual places to grab some lunch up by Columbia or on campus?

    This would be right up my alley, but possibly not what you had in mind - the Hungarian Pastry Shop, down the street from St. John. The cakes are really nice...

    Hungarian Cakes! I adore eastern European pastry. I will make a stop. Absolutely. After lunch, though.

    See, if it was me, I would order 2 different cakes and call it my lunch.
    St John the Divine is beautiful and has a lovely garden that's a great place to eat your cake, if the weather is nice.

    I am just leaving after a whirlwind, four days in the city with my mom. The impetus was to see Sondra Radnovsky sing Norma at the Met on Monday night, which as I've already posted in the opera thread, was as incredible as advertised.

    My mom and I are theater junkies, so we filled most of the rest of the time with plays and musicals.

    Saturday night was Pippin, which was fabulous, but I was disappointed that Patina Miller was out. The understudy was good, but did not have the same voice or ease of movement as Miller. I still enjoyed it, but I have been watching Miller's videos and listening to the OBC album, so really wanted to see her.

    Sunday matinee was The Glass Menagerie. If you can, see this. It was spectacular. For the first time, the play really felt like an ensemble. Normally, the character of Amanda just dominates the play, but Zachary Quinto and Celia Keenan-Bolger made Tom and Laura such strong characters that it felt very different than other productions.

    Sunday night was Kinky Boots, which was the one dud in our itinerary. I did think Billy Porter was fantastic, but I don't think it was possible to write a more predictable book and more forgettable music than they did.

    And last night, we did a quick change. We had tickets for Betrayal, but reading some lukewarm advance reviews on some websites and seeing there were two tickets in the last row for the opening night of previews for the Mark Rylance Twelfth Night, we snatched up the Twelfth Night tickets at midnight on Monday and sold the Betrayal tickets to someone in the cancellation line. (The guy at the Betrayal stage door told us we could sell them for double what we paid, but we let them go for $50 profit, which paid for post-theater dinner at Shake Shack.).

    Neither of us regretted the decision. Twelfth Night was fantastic. Rylance is hysterical as Olivia and plays her in a manner unlike any actor (or actress) I've ever seen. Stephen Fry's Malvolio is great, and Paul Chahidi as Maria and Samuel Barnett as Viola were both phenomenal. It was the perfect finale for the trip.

    So now I return to LA (where the the theatre binge continues -- Bernadette Peters on Saturday and Audra McDonald the following week).

    I saw Pippin a few nights before opening, and it was phenomenal. Too bad about Patina, she is sublime, but there is so much other good happening on that stage, it could be worse I'm looking forward to getting back down to the city to see Big Fish and The Glass Menagerie. Fortunately, I'll be in Westchester County for work for 2 weeks in November, so I think I can swing it
