This year I returned to good old Manhattan for my birthday weekend and this time it was pretty darn awesome.
Tomorrow is my actual birthday but yesterday started off with a good old fashioned heart to heart that went quite well. Then I traveled to the city and navigated through drunk Santas and elves (because the dreaded SantaCon) to finally pick up point back rhinestones. Yes!
Then I watched a drunk Santa make a fool of himself getting tangled in a line. Bahaha. Then off to the subway to meet up with one of my besties, change, hit the road for the village, eat, and see a show!
So I had not eaten. We got to Delancy and Essex thinking that I will look for food on the way to the show. However, across the street was Roma Pizza! Which probably means nothing to most people including New Yorkers. The fact that I am excited about it might boggle done New Yorkers. So from 2003 until 2005 I went to the Fashion Institute of Technology and on 27th between 7th and 8th on the west side of 27th was Roma Pizza. When I went to FIT I ate at Roma's all the time. Then it because a nail salon. Now I am not sure what it is. So I was over the moon to eat at Roma's. They even had the brick decor. Ha!
So the show was at the amazing Slipper Room. If you are over 21 I highly recommend it. It's a burlesque house. Oh yeah. The show we saw had static trapeze, hammock, sword swallowing, hula hoop burlesque, and some pretty amazing burlesque/go go dancers.
The midnight show had even better burlesque. We only stayed for half but they had a beautiful doubles lyra performance and a man performing balancing and contortion while hula hooping. It was amazing. He was amazing. I always say the male acrobats are the real powerhouses. They are just a sight.
I did go out in my pink Jem wig. I also have my new Jemstar earrings on but you can't see them. Why not have fun for your birthday.
