Christmas in New York Day Five

After a night out bar hopping, the morning came to soon. We had to get to the MOMA if we were going to get in the Van Gogh show. We quickly showered and ate a bagel, left the apartment, hailed a cab, and were in line at 8:45. The line wasn't very long so we knew we were guaranteed a viewing.

After buying tickets, we rode the elevator up to the 2nd floor and were immediately allowed into the Van Gogh exhibit. I was mesmerized immediately and didn't speak a word for 45 minutes.

No pictures were allowed but I was able to take a few with no flash. This exhibit was incredible and nearly brought to tears.

Since it was our last day, we cabbed over to Herald Square for some shoe shopping. Surprisingly, I did not purchase one pair (one year I bought 4).

Then we cabbed over to Union Square where we went to the same diner that still wasn't good. Next year, we won't be eating there.

After eating, we hit the Strand bookstore where Mooey purchased some travel books.

We were beat after the museum and all the shopping and knew we had big dinner plans. We headed back to the apartment to pack and rest a little before going to Rosa Mexicano.


Pomegranate margaritas!

I ordered a shrimp dish that was very spicy. It was delicious!

Here's a picture of Mooey's family (I'm an honorary member).

After eating and drinking, Stooie and I napped at the table.
