NYC Is For Lovers

The TV Guide

As the rain started to pour in NYC yesterday, David and I packed up our bags on our way out of town bound for home. Anytime you are dealing with any sort of weather near JFK Airport, you run the risk not only of having your flight delayed … you also run the risk having your entire flight cancelled. Thankfully, despite the somewhat heavy rain, we not only managed to NOT be delayed … but we even left on time. The only unfortunate thing about our having to leave NYC yesterday was that we missed celebrating with our friends Shane and Jason … because they got engaged to be married last night! More »

‘Sleep’ Once More

The TV Guide

On Thursday night, after so many recommendations from friends, David and I attended a performance of the NYC interactive theatrical production Sleep No More. I loved the show SO MUCH and felt that I NEEDED to see/experience more, I decided to go see the show again last night. Because Sleep No More is closing next month and my next visit to NYC isn’t until November, last night was my last chance to see it … so when a ticket became available, I jumped on it. I have to tell you … as much as I loved the show the first time, I really REALLY enjoyed it much better the second time … because I knew what to look for and was able to customize my experience. Trust me, this is a show that YOU MUST SEE. Read on if you want to hear more about my second time around. More »

Theater Review: ‘Rent’ (2011)

The TV Guide

As I mentioned earlier, David and I got to see the new off-Broadway production of Rent here in NYC and as a HUGE Renthead, I was excited and a bit worried about seeing the show. I’ve seen the show well over 30 times so it holds a place dear in my heart. I knew that there would have to be some changes made to the show but my hope was that the spirit and soul of the show would remain intact. Thankfully, yes, the numerous changes to the show did NOT change the emotional impact of the show. While I didn’t love every change, I did enjoy the show overall very much. More »

Past Due ‘Rent’

The TV Guide

Last night was a pretty bizzy night for David and me as we had a pretty full plate of entertainment to enjoy. To get the night started, we attended last night’s performance of the new off-Broadway production of Rent (which I enjoyed … for the most part, review to follow) and then a night of revelry at Splash Bar with some friends. Now, David and I are not accustomed to late nights but we managed to muster up the strength to party hearty. More »

‘Sleep’, Perchance To Nightmare

The TV Guide

Last night David and I got to attend a performance of the amazing new off-Broadway show Sleep No More. For months now I’ve been hearing about this show and have been really anxious to see it. I purchased our tickets for last night’s show back in early June … because the rest of June and all of July had already sold out. I wouldn’t be surprised if you haven’t heard of Sleep No More, most of the buzz has been word of mouth … but I’m telling you right now, it’s an experience that you do NOT want to miss. More »

Downtown Train

The TV Guide

My time in the wilds of Rhode Island has come to an end and David and I are now in NYC. We’ll be here in the Big Apple until the end of the week and we’ve got a pretty full schedule on our plates. But, before we let the hecticness of the city overtake us, we settled in and enjoyed the really breezy and cool weather here last night. More »

Meeting Britney Spears

The TV Guide

So … ok … last night. After many, many years of being a HUGE fan, I was finally able to meet the living legend herself … Britney Spears. After missing out on the meet and greets in SoCal (mainly because I wasn’t even aware that she would be doing meet and greets), I decided that I HAD to figure out a way to meet her. Long story short, I managed to get a m&g ticket for the Hartford, CT show and last night was the night. Before meeting Britney, tho, David and I had a great time meeting other people here in CT as well. Click below to see some of the photos from my epic night last night. More »

Gorging Myself Happily In Rhode Island

The TV Guide

Let me tell you one of the most amazing things about Rhode Island … it’s Nature. Nature in all its wondrous and stunning beauty … which tastes absolutely DELICIOUS! Last night, the Hauslaib fam took me to a place called Duffy’s Tavern for a seafood meal that was unlike any I have ever enjoyed before. We ate HUGE lobsters, massive crab legs and all sorts of smaller, yet tasty seafood offerings. Now, I love me some seafood … but last night’s meal has to take the cake as the most sumptuous and delicious seafood meal I’ve ever gorged myself on. More »

Movie Review: ‘Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes’

The TV Guide

Back in February we got our first look at the first promo photo from the prequel film Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Based on the description alone, I was intrigued. In April, we got to see the first trailer for the film … and I knew that I would be seeing the film as soon as possible. Yesterday, David and I saw the film and I am very happy to report that we both enjoyed it very much. More »

Mall Rats

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a very rainy day here in Rhode Island and because there wasn’t an outdoors to escape the cabin for, we packed up the mini-van and made our way into the capitol city of Providence to go to the movies. We ended up at The Providence Place Mall and walked around a bit before we had to go into our movie. David and I saw Rise of the Planet of the Apes (review forthcoming) while his parents and sisters went to see Midnight in Paris … and a great afternoon was had by all. More »
