Mama to Manhattan, The Details: Day Three

Jump to last reply

Our Day Three starts at the crack of dawn, actually before that as the crack 5:30. Try as I might, I can't talk Mom out of Good Morning America's free Friday morning concert in Central Park featuring American Idol contestants. The GMA website advises us to arrive at 6AM for the 7AM show. Doug has said kids will be lined up all night and we may not be able to get in. I've tried contacting Good Morning America to inquire about passes with seating, but so far all I've received back is a robo-reply. Fingers crossed.

I figure if we can't get into the show we'll look for a nearby bench where we can sit and listen to a song or two, then take a pleasant stroll through the park while it's still cool out.

Q: How does one get a taxi at 5:30 AM? Are they out at that hour or will we have to call for one?

After the show we'll head back to the hotel. I'm not sure how much energy Mom and Gladys will have after that so I'm leaving the afternoon open. If they're up to it, we'll go to Grand Central and have a look around there. I've seen a self guided tour on the internet that I'll print out to take with us.

Q: Anything there that we should not miss?

That night we have reservations at the 21 Club at 7:30. At least I hope we still do. I got an odd email from Village Vines (now Savored) saying the restaurant needs my credit card on file before they will honor our reservation -- but I already gave that information when I reserved a table. I'll call 21 directly today to verify.

Q: I love a good hamburger and I've heard that 21 Club's is phenomenal. Is it a mistake to order that instead of something fancier there?

After our meal we will walk to Top of the Rock. (It doesn't look too far on the map.)

Q: I think I've read on here that we don't need to purchase tickets in advance. True?

After 21
