NYC take three. Or should it be, take thee? I LOVE LOVE LOVE NEW YORK CITY!
Our last full day together, sniff sniff. The next day everyone will be flying back to their kids, their husbands, their normal routine. Except for me. My travels are only starting. But the Loos weekend in NYC was coming to an end. Again, sniffles.
Hurry it up gals, we got people to see and places to be. And what would be a trip to Manhattan without stopping at Central Park? It would be NOTHING. Nothing I tell ya.
Awww cute lil horsey. Is the taxi dude checkin’ me out? Or the horse?

Eight Loos. On a Rock. In Central Park, Manhattan. USA.
I always love a ride on the Central Park Merry-Go-Round. Yeehaw!
After the funness at Central Park we walked to the East Side to grab a burger. Cheeburger Cheeburger. And a Bloody Mary. Or Two. Most of the gang still needed to buy some tchotchkes, so back to Times Square we go. Bess and I needed no more New York themed stuff so since it was WORLD CUP month, we headed to the closest bar for a Bloody Mary. Or Two.
We did NOT go to Olive Garden to watch the game. GO GERMANY! GO USA! GO SPAIN!
Our good friend and SHS ’89 classmate, Kary, works at Shaffer City in the Meatpacking District. He was going to cook us up a dinner made specially for us. Yippee! If you go there, be sure to ask for Kary the chef to make your dinner. You will not be disappointed. I don’t have pics of everything from our 7-course meal, but here are a few of the deliciousness that was served up by the friendly staff.
Meat, potato goodness in special sauce. Mmmmmm….
I was in heaven with the brownie dessert.
ALL of the Loos, with Kary, the chef. Thanks Goolsby!
Oh, you think that’s it? We are not done yet. The night is young. And the night calls for ….. KAROKE. Yo. Bring it 80s music.
DELTA DAWN WHAT’S THAT FLOWER YOU HAVE ON. COULD IT BE A FADED ROSE FROM DAYS GONE BYYYYYYYYYYY
Be afraid. Be VERY afraid. Susie and I are rockin’ the mic.
There you have it my friends. The incredible tales of the Loos take over Manhattan. Until next time. I am Loo Loo Loobird.
