24 Hours in NYC

Posted on | March 25, 2009 | 2 Comments

So I went up to NYC for a little getaway for my 10th anniversary. (we’re headed somewhere warm on a nice four nighter next month) First we went to NEO for some GREAT Japanese food. Take a look at the pic of this tuna dish with avocado sauce on DoYouLoveit.com. Then took a walk down the street to see The Allman Brothers Band with special guests Bruce Hornsby, Susan Tedeschi (who should stick to singing and not playing lead guitar) and a horn section. Awesome show. Check out the footage I got with my flip. The HD Flip is my next purchase.

Then we met a new friend that I connected with on twitter (who is also a third generation jeweler) for brunch at Sara Beth’s – sooo good. Yes the power of social networking – it’s good stuff.

After that, we went to a check out a diamond that was a 5.34 carat off color round, and then recut to a 4.14 fancy yellow radiant. All I can say is WOW. Check out this video of the unfinished diamond and this video of the last trip to NYC to have it examined. This cutter is the man – it is unreal. It’s being made into a ring with two white radiants on the side, and you’ll see a pic of it soon with the sweet new camera we bought from B & H Photo. We have been buying and selling cameras from them since they were on 47th Street. Well their place on 34th and 9th is just insane. You need to check it out – what an operation and not a bad website either. Then we walked from B & H to Penn Station, and hopped right on the train – perfect timing and back home for dinner. It was beauty. We did so much in so little time. Wait until you see this ring…

I forgot to say what happened first. We met John Waters in the train station and got a picture with him!

    Love the pic of you and John Waters in the train station, that’s Bmore right not Penn Station. Hope all is well, when you coming south again?

    Heath – what’s up? That was at Penn Station here in Baltimore. Not sure if I’ll make it down there before the summer but hope you will make your way up here!
