Christmas in NY - Nutcracker Ballet - The Smith

Day 10 Christmas in New York:

On Day 10 of Christmas in New York I am very excited to be getting all dressed up and meeting my cousin and my little nieces for a beautiful evening at The New York City Ballet at Lincoln Center to see  George Balanchine's The Nutcracker. We all took a picture on the first ring with a beautiful Ballerina. I was so excited as they were to meet her. We sat in our seats in Orchestra and I was a little nervous because I did not know if the littles would enjoy it and they did. It was great to sit and relax after running around the City for 9 days. I was transported to a land far away and as the Sugarplum Fairies danced I felt my self dancing along with them...ooops I just got tapped on the shoulder to sit still. It was beautiful.

Dinner was at The Smith across Lincoln Plaza (read below for a hidden secret)

Pretzels were the best

Decadent Macaroni and cheese

S'mores in a Jar


 Shhhhhh there is a secret at The Smith. If you go downstairs to the restrooms on the Men's wall there is a "peep hole" look inside and what you see is a movie reel of Vintage Follies from the 20's. Aman looked at me very strangely but I quickly explained and showed him! Ha he is there often and has never even noticed the hole.  Please visit The Smith they have several different locations and are the friendliest crew around. See you tomorrow but no more secrets!! xoox
