Wednesday Evening, May 1: Arrival, Times Square

We converged in NYC at the Plaza Hotel. We came from both coasts and the middle - Diva from Miami, Terry and Adele from Dallas and me from San Diego. No not THE Plaza Hotel (we wish) but HoJo's Plaza Hotel on 8th Ave. and 51st. Rates were reasonable and rooms were relatively spacious and clean. Location was in the Theatre District also called Hell's Kitchen - which turned out to be a good location - walking distance to Times Square, subway stations, Central Park, Theaters, museums and most importantly, next door to a Starbucks.

After we all got settled in we went out to scope out Times Square area and find someplace to eat. We wandered a bit, enjoying the lights, debating what/where we wanted to eat (I dunno. What do you want to eat? Anything. etc. etc.) we ended up at Rosie O'Grady's Steak and Seafood, where Terry had eaten on a previous visit. Good food, drink and a bit of a sticker shock, but hey we're on vacation! Well, at least 3 of us were in NYC for a vacation. Terry was in NYC for a symposium for Cardiologists called "Valves in the Heart of the Big Apple", that would keep her busy all day Thursday and Friday. She said it was a good meeting, but all I know is she was craving red MEAT after all that 'healthy' food they served for lunch.
