Pachucoville goes east: NYC here we come...
Rolling out tomorrow for an early b-day trip for both Q and R. Taking R's cousin F who is 14, so my 11 yr. old Q can have someone else to talk to when we bore her.
It is Q's and F's first trip to the Big Manzana. Excitement is in the air.
A lot to do today: finish grading some papers, pick up Q, last minute shopping for thermals, get torta ingredients (to make tortas) and munchies for the plane and packing.
Any suggests, aside from the usual tourist traps?
We are planning on getting to all of these in our 4 days:
Statue of Liberty
Empire State Building
Whitney (Three Chicanos from So. Cal are showing)
Museo del Barrio (Harry Gamboa Jr. has pics there!!!)
Meat Packing District
Brooklyn/Williamsberg (need to go make fun of hipsters)
Upper East Side
I would love to go see:
Little Louie Vega @ Cielo
Will update you if I have access or when I get back.
