So today I am in New York for a work-related seminar. I am currently sitting at JFK Airport, my flight scheduled to depart at 5:30 p.m. was canceled and I was rescheduled for tomorrow morning at 10:35 a.m. I had a nice conversation with a JetBlue representative and now I’m on a flight that is departing at 10:45 p.m., though it has been delayed until 11:18 p.m. We’ll see how it goes.
After the seminar this morning, the vendor treated us to something I had never done before. Instead of going to a restaurant and having a sit down meal for lunch, the vendor contracted a tour guide who took us on a walking food tour of Manhattan. Bruce the tour guide was a very nice guy and the change of pace was very refreshing.
Our food included:
Indian Food from a place that I think was called The Kati Roll Company.
Cheesecake from Junior’s
Pizza from Napoli(?) Pizza
And pastrami on rye from Carnegie Deli.
We walked to each of those restaurants and ate on the sidewalk outside of the front door or in an adjacent park. It gave us the opportunity to mingle and talk and learn a little bit about Manhattan. Though we had to hide from the rain for a little while, it was otherwise a different way to enjoy a nifty lunch.
By the way, we experienced the food listed above in the order I have it listed. That was a little odd but the quirkiness kept it interesting.
And now I’m going to find a place to take a nap here at JFK.
