Mama to Manhattan, the Details: Days 4 & 5

Jump to last reply

I think I have Saturday mostly figured out. The morning starts with Gladys' choice. I've emailed CBS to reserve audience spots for the Early Show and the studio tour that follows. I'd like to do brunch nearby but I'm having trouble finding somewhere that is casual and inexpensive. Any suggestions?

I'm moving Ellen's Stardust to this night. We'll allow plenty of time to eat and take a taxi to the Stephen Sondheim Theatre for the 8PM Anything Goes show.

Sunday is trickier. We want to go to Chinatown that day but I can't figure out a bus route that drops us close. The subway station there doesn't seem to be a good one for the ladies. And I'm feeling overwhelmed planning a short walking route that will give us a flavor of the area. So ...

Q. If you walked around just one block in Chinatown which would you pick for the best shopping/food/gawking? I'd really like it if the route took us past Chinatown Ice Cream Factory or not too far out of the way.

We'll have an early dinner at Le Renais de Venise.

Q: Do we need reservations for 5:30-ish on a Sunday?

Then on to the Carlyle for drinks and our Bobby Short homage. We want to be done there before the cover charge kicks in.

Sound okay?
