10:00 AM Saturday, September 13th- 10:00 AM Sunday, September 14th, 2008
Also, we’ve gotten e-mails and calls from many of you who say you’re planning on dropping by at so and so times. As we said before, swing by whenever!
1:30 AM-3:30 or Later
Bar Hopping in Hell’s Kitchen- Valhalla and Circus Bar
Valhalla -9th and 53rd, Circus Bar – Circus Bar- 9th and 44th
So, among the Big Adventure Planners and committee members, there was a hubbub of disagreement concerning the best bars to visit in Hell’s Kitchen. The resolution: keep it simple. We’re going to start at Valhalla around 1:30 AM where they have a great atmosphere and many, many beers on taps as well as sampling and end at Circus bar – home of a half-assed circus theme, incredibly cheap beers and always something going on that’s a little north of shady (and I always get the impression that they never close). Depending on how it goes, we may stop at sundry bars along 9th Avenue between the two places as we walk/stagger. Call to locate us.
3:30 AM -4:30
Late Night Eating: Diner Grub
Time to refresh and refuel. Probably will stop at the Tick Tock Dinner or New Diamond Café or one of the other 50 24-Hour Diners located in Midtown or Hell’s Kitchen. Ah, isn’t New York great?
5:00 AM-7:30 AM
Watching the sun rise at Battery Park
133 West 33rd Street, Midtown Manhattan
Ah, Daybreak. We’ll take the 1 Train to the tip of Manhattan to watch a new day dawn. Battery Park is said to have the best view of Sunrise on the island and we can point and laugh at the early, early morning runners at the secluded city park. We will the then be filled with inspiration and epiphanies and we’ll start some sort of crusade and take the world by storm in some manner. Stopping at a 24-Hour Starbucks is also part of this segment of the Adventure.
8:00 AM- 9:00AM
Appearance on the Today Show
Okay, we’ll not really an appearance, but we’ll be those stupid people outside waving signs. Yes, both CBS and NBC host a Sunday Morning version of the weekday show that no one watches. And Yes, we’ll have signs to wave. Since there are only about a dozen people on Sunday, we should make quite an impact. Set the DVR and tell your great aunt who is up that early on Sunday to get ready to watch us hang with lesser-known anchor Lester Holt.
9:00 AM- 10:00 AM
