Planking #NYC

I went to NYC for a day (actually 22 hrs) this past week to see The Big 4 at Yankee Stadium, more about that later.  So, what to do in NYC? (besides planking)

How about a little Reuben samich at Carnegie’s Deli?





We had to go see The Carter, one of the top five dirtiest hotels in the U.S. (no, we did not stay there)





We rode the subway and relaxed on city benches…..





…..inspected the public works and always watched our step…..





Finally we went to the concert of a lifetime (I think I have said that before, but can never say that again) and they must have heard we were coming





It was a great show, basically adding Metallica to the last GREAT show I attended.

Four of the best (and my favorite) metal bands of all times.  They were all solid, but Metallica blew everyone away.  Opening with Creeping Death and For Whom The Bell Tolls, closing with Seek and Destroy after Battery.  Knocking out all the classics, Master of Puppets, Fade to Black and Sad But True.  But, pulling out Overkill and the spirit of Lemmy with the rest of The Big 4 bands could have been the highlight.  Amazing stuff by all 4 bands.

And I am still debating the oddest thing I saw …..

A man with a satchel (European handbag) or a man wearing Capri’s ….. at a Slayer concert …..




  1. Nice! I quite enjoy the guy with the satchel. -at Metallica? Gotta give him credit. Brave. The satchel guy is my hero today.
