My gf and I get into town around noon on 9-2, check into the hotel and then are gonna explore NYC before coming back for dinner and the evening performances/social dancing. Sunday we'll probably hit Frankie Martinez's body isolations and/or spin classes before resuming our roaming around Little Italy and elsewhere. Only doing one night at the congress but I think Saturday night alone will be worth it and we don't get back to DC until about 1am Monday morning, just in time for work Save me some dances, Africana!
One thing I absolutely *INSIST* on doing is hitting Little Italy (probably on Sunday) to get some of the world's best Tiramisu from Ferrara's. Might hit Bang-Bang in the Village for some clothes but other than that I think we'll bum around the city to see what's what on Saturday before the congress starts. I don't get up to NYC very often (haven't been there since last November's NY/NJ Festival) so anytime I go I try to see everything.
thanks Beto! You'll probably see me at frankie's class(es)
Yeah I'm ashamed to say that I still haven't been to some of the major sights (like empire state, the statue, etc) cos I'm just too darn lazy if it doesn't have anything to do with dancing hehe, not much of a sightseer...but perhaps I'll try a broadway show this time
I can't believe it, been planning a trip to NYC and canada for weeks, moved NYC to the end of the trip to get in Jimmy Anton's social, then booked the flights, THEN heard about this! I'm gonna be in a car heading to Montreal while this is going on :-(
Hey Jennibelle and all other fellow DF'ers,
I have not been on here in awhile, I look forward to meeting and dancing with some of you at the NY Congress - I'll be there all weekend, aside from my class with Karisma on Saturday afternoon.
