Road Trip

Raft3r is watching the US Open this Saturday.

Friends from LA are flying over to Baltimore and joining me for an entire day of tennis matches. I couldn’t be any happier.

I get to see a lot of my tennis heroes. Sadly, Rafter nor Hingis would be there. But there are still many tennis greats to look forward to. Hopefully, most of the top seeds would be playing on Saturday.

Raft3r definitely wants to catch a glimpse of all the Russian starlets and Slovakian chicks.

We are driving to New York and staying at a motel in New Jersey. It's just 10 miles away from Flushing Meadows.

On Sunday, we are hitting the streets of NY. There have been talks of watching something in Broadway. Raft3r begged off.

I'm not into musicals. I would rather spend those three hours inside Virgin Megastore and Toys R Us. That's my kind of thing.

Before we head back to Baltimore, we are also checking out Niagara Falls, Atlantic City, and DC. An hour per city, I guess?

We'll see how this trip turns out. The itinerary changes by the second. But it's gonna be fun all throughout.

I can tell right now that this long Labor Day weekend is gonna be very expensive.

Broadway's okay. Try "Stomp" or "Spring Awakening". If you do matinée it's also cheaper.

Raft3r said...

anonymous, Spring Awakening is Duncan Sheik's work. He's one of my heroes. But even he cannot convince me to watch Broadway. Antayin natin si Janet. Hehe

Sounds fun! Take a dive in the water when you get to the Falls. Hehe!

Raft3r said...

ar-dee-see, You know I would do more than just dive. Hehe
