Today I am taking the train in to New York and having a Restaurant Week lunch at Cafe Boulud. Holy cow am I excited about eating there. I adore Daniel Boulud (wasn’t he the cutest on Top Chef?), and Cafe Boulud’s got three stars from the Times and one Michelin star. Daniel, one of Chef Boulud’s other restaurants, has two Michelin stars and four stars from the Times. I’ve been wanting to read the book about him working for that fourth star, but I haven’t had the chance yet. Oh well. I can still really really really enjoy lunching at his restaurant!
After lunch, I will visit Economy Candy and promptly die on the spot because I will be in candy heaven. While there, I plan to buy enough candy to at least keep me reviewing until Halloween.
Once I am ridiculously loaded down with candy purchases, I shall attempt to get lottery tickets to see Rent. If that doesn’t come through, I will pray that the box office has extra cheap seat tickets to sell, because Adam Pascal and Anthony Rapp are back on stage for a limited engagement, and I’ll be damned if I miss them. I will even sleep in Central Park to try again on Saturday if they’re completely sold out. I shall also try to get my Rent movie poster signed by the original Mark and Roger. Jessie L. Martin (aka Tom Collins) has already signed it, and the addition of two more original cast members will make it even more awesome than it already is.
