Even more thrilling were the day's guests - Nick Lachey and Mark Wahlberg! I'm a big celeb junkie (it's totally my guilty pleasure) so this was especially awesome. It was so fun to see them in person, and was a great way to kick off my trip.
The trip was for work, but between my meetings and training, I was able to squeeze in some solid tourist-time. I saw the Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, St. Patrick's Cathedral, Bryant Park, Madison Avenue, Park Avenue, Times Square and Central Park. I walked miles, explored a little, and thoroughly enjoyed myself.
It was a great trip. A ton of work-related work, but also fun. (Until my flight was canceled.. but that's another story).
Until next time, New York!
