Day One In NYC For #TheAvengersEvent
Yesterday was tough to start. Even with all the excitement of coming to the city to hob knob with the celebrities, I was a little nervous going off on my own! It is very rare that I go anywhere with out my children, and even more rare that I go anywhere with out my Hubby!!
I got to drop Ben Jr off at school, and I tried not to cry!!
Then I went back home quickly to say bye to Ben and Doug.
I was off!! It normally takes about two hours to get to Stamford CT to pick up the train. Yesterday it was a lot longer (horrible traffic!!!) Oh and the express train (yes express) was 45 minutes late!! I was supposed to meet up with a couple other bloggers at 1pm yesterday, but I didn't make it to the hotel until 3pm!!
My day got a lot better when I saw my hotel room!! We are staying at the Eventi Hotel!!
After I checked in, and rested for a little bit, I went to explore the area. We are very close to 5th avenue (6th avenue!!) so I did a little window shopping. NYC is prepared for The Avengers!!! Everywhere I turned there was something displayed to promote the movie!!
I of course had to join in on the fun, so I got Ben Jr and Doug each a really cute Avengers T-shirt!!
After shopping, we all met in the lobby, wearing our Fan Girl T-Shirts!!
Then it was off to Jack Demseys for dinner!! Yummy!! I ordered the Chicken Potpie, and it was very good!! I also got to sit at a table with some awesome friends. Heather from Our Kids Mom, Darcy from Tales From The Nursery, and our terrific host Marshall!!
After dinner, we had picture time!!! The first picture is courtesy of Marshall!!
Of course we had to get a shot of the ShePromotes girls (Thanks Darcy!!!)
I don't know why my face is sooooo red. I didn't have any alcohol, I swear!!
After dinner, some of us old timers, went to bed while some of them young-ins went to the Empire State Building!!
Over all it was a terrific day!!!
