Happy Birthday Doug!

As an extra birthday present for Doug, yesterday evening we went to see Barry Manilow at St James’s Theatre on Broadway as we managed to get half price tickets at Times Square ticket booth, we couldn’t believe the seats we had only 11 rows from the stage!  It turned out to be an absolutely fantastic show.  Even at his age he can still get the crowd going!


We were all up, standing in the isles dancing and singing and waving our glow sticks! and, although we are not huge fans, it was a great opportunity to see a world star in his home town and we were very glad we got the tickets.

Today we spent the most part on conducted Red Bus tours around Manhattan and Brooklyn.  It was great to listen to all the incredible fact and figures as we went past various famous landmarks.IMG_1286

At the end of the Brooklyn Tour we chose to get off the bus and walk across Brooklyn Bridge back to Manhattan.

This evening our celebrations continue with complimentary cocktails from the Waldorf, as a Birthday Gift to Doug, after which we will then go out for a meal and hit the club scene later!
