I had the whole evening planned, we were going to cocktail first, go to an early play, and catch dinner at a great restaurant after. I chose to see Cabaret, as it was playing in the remodeled space that used to be the infamous Studio 54. They had it set up as a small bistro with tables that sat four, and we got an aisle table facing the stage only a few rows back. The seats were fantastic.

I had chose Gotham Bar and Grill at 12 East 12th Street in Greenwich Village for our fine dining experience. I'm lucky that Char likes to dine as much as I do so she seemed to appreciate the choice.
Do you know the problem with a city that never sleeps? It gives you too many hours to get into trouble. We had finished our meal and were walking in the neighborhood, and it seemed too early to head back to our uptown hotel, so my wife asked what I would normally do on a regular trip to the city.

So that was the night I danced on Broadway, truly memorable from beginning to end. All of it is true, and true to my nature, Coyote Ugly, as it might be. If you get to the city, I highly recommend catching a Broadway show, dining at the Gotham Bar and Grill and even finishing up at Hogs and Heifers, but try and pick a slow night.
