life in and around NYC is insane

Another NYC evening

Thursday night.  Cold and raw, a reminder that despite all the mild weather it's still winter.

First stop, Ellen's Stardust Diner.  Last week we bypassed the place -- too crowded.  But on a non-matinee day we were seated without a wait.  We love the singing here.  This time around, our waitress actually sang to Drew while refilling his coffee cup.  Heard two incredible singers, the guy who sang "Impossible Dream" from Man of La Mancha and the guy who sang "O Solo Mio".

Then we walked over to the Musicbox Theater for Shatner's World.  That's William Shatner's one-man show.  He spends an hour and a half telling stories about his life.  Mostly funny, of course, but there are sad and poinant moments as well. 

Afterwards we stood at the stage door.  He didn't sign autographs, but I did get a picture of him up close.

Another enjoyable night.
