so guys back on thursday morning and have been getting ready for xmas- hence the delay in report.
I had took notes of what we did on my phone but i dropped said phone into a cup of tea so going to try and wing it from memory.
sorry if its long winded lol
landed at JFK on sat 1st of dec around 2pm
after realising that the taxi cue had moved indoors after standing outside for 10mins ( we were all very excited and paying no attention) got a taxi to our hotel 'The Stay Hotel' in times square and were there for 3ish. Hotel was lovely, really modern and the double room we had booked was spacious enough for our needs.
We got freshened up and went down toThe Aspen social club in the lobby for a cocktail, it took almost 40 mins to get 1 drink and the bar had very few patrons ( will do a seperate report on the hotel also) but boy were the drinks lethal, we had 1 each and were very tipsy so all was forgiven.
We made our way out to get try and get food and take in times square, we went to Dallas bbq (recommended by a friend)- this place was crazy, we have nothing like this at home, cattle market springs to mind in terms of getting seated. We each had a good dinner though and huge cocktails that were so tasty.
We started to fade after travelling all day so we headed back to the hotel for an early night.
Just to add i dont sleep very well and am a smoker (tut tut) so i would normally on holidays get up during the night and go outside for a smoke, we were on the 8th floor so i pulled on a hoody and uggs and headed down- when all of a sudden as the lift decends past the 3rd floor the music was blaring, got to the lobby and low and behold there was a full scale nightclub going on. i must stress we heard nothing from the 8th floor so i was shocked and a little embarrassed in my uggs and hoodie.
