I love NKOTB. And NYC.

It is no secret that I am a huge fan of New Kids on the Block ... no shame here. And I love me some girl time ... so, this past weekend I went to New York City with some girlfriends to see New Kids on the Block at Radio City Music Hall.




I actually went to two of the three shows they did at Radio City ... I.love.them. During the final show, they surprised the fans by bringing Backstreet Boys out on stage with them ... epic.


Donnie Wahlberg had an after party both nights at different clubs in New York City ... it was so fun ... and interesting, considering I had never been to a real club before. Since we couldn't get after party tickets before they sold out, I learned how to get us on the house list ... go me! Nevermind the fact that once we got to the club, we were told there was no house list, despite the email confirmation I had.

Note to self: Do not argue with a New Yorker.

Whatever ... we got in, so that is all that matters. Actually, the second night they brought us into the VIP area ... go us! We got to rub elbows with Donnie all night long, err something like that.

Second note to self: If you ever go to Club Amnesia in New York City, do not stand right next to the stack of speakers --> you will lose your hearing. Just sayin.

I love New York City. Things are just ... um, different there. When we walked out of the club the first night, NYPD was standing all around the club smoking cigars while on duty. Nice. We asked one of them if that was really allowed and they said, "Darling, where you from?" Ha.

I could sit in Times Square and watch people all.day.long. I heard that the naked cowboy does not make appearances much any more ... instead, now there is the naked cowgirl and the naked cowgranny. Funny ... I just googled the naked cowboy and apparently he is threatening to sue the naked cowgranny. Oy.


Love being able to have weekends like this ... and thanks to my husband for letting it happen on Father's Day weekend. He.is.the.best!


  1. I love new your too. there is just something about it that feels so different than anywhere else! glad you had fuN!!n ( you nut!!!)

  2. SO.MUCH.FUN. And, I missed it. :( Next time...so glad you had a great time! (minus the piss incident)

  3. It was the BEST weekend!!!! We need to do NYC together at least once a year.

  4. Okay, I am really jealous! I have loved NKOTB from the time they first came out, but I have never been to a concert. Donnie is my favorite and I would have fainted to be in the same room with him!

    I'm green with jealousy, but glad that you had a wonderful time!

  5. How fun - I so need a girl's getaway.

  6. Looks like you had a blast! New York is such a special and unique place! Have not seen the naked cowgranny. That is hysterical. Glad you had fun!

  7. what a FUN weekend in new york - glad you guys were able to get into the club and hopefully your hearing has returned?! :)

  8. You guys are SO funny!!! Glad you had a good time and I'm very impessed you got into the VIP area. You go girls!!!!

  9. Delurking here....Glad you had such a good time! NYC is amazing--and you're right: you don't argue with a New Yorker.

    One of the best weeks I've ever spent (better than Sandals with my husbnad or Europe with my sister-though I won't tell them this) was the week I spent in NYC with my daughter when she turned 16. There's something about being able to introduce your teenager to the world that makes it truly special.

  10. You crack my up!

    We were in NYC last month (first time for me). It was different! fun though. We didn't see naked anyone. I was on the look out for the cowboy though. Granny?? um, no thanks!

    I thought it was funny the NYPD had flashy signs at times square.. like they are advertising or something.

  11. I've always wanted to visit NYC. That's definitely on my list...hopefully this winter once the tree is up in Rockefeller Center. I've always thought that would be so beautiful to see. Cracked up at the Times Square pics!
