This morning I headed to Providence to catch the train in to New York City. I am spending a couple of days in the city for Blogger Bash 2016. This is a blogger event with some very fun events planned throughout the few days on site. I’ll be going on The Ride, pitching my blog to a bunch of sponsors and seeing a ton of hot new toys from 80+ different brands. That will be incredible.
The train ride down was good, it seemed faster than normal to me. I wrote up a blog post and watched the movie The Wedding Ringer (except for the last 10 minutes). I got there before it ended and then walked from Penn Station to 48th street. It was a nice brisk walk on a comfortable day. It could have been sweltering but it was great, nice breeze and everything.
I got to my hotel at the same time as my roommate, Tim of A Geek Daddy. I had just sat down and heard my name. Tim went over to the Intrepid Museum and I went for lunch. I found my way to Lansdowne Road where I got some Beef Short Rib Tacos and some Fried Pickles. The tacos were great but the fried pickles left much to be desired. I didn’t eat many of them anyway as I’m trying to cut down the carbs. Then I walked back to the hotel and waited for check in. Went upstairs to get a little rest. I couldn’t sleep.
Tim came back from his trip and the two of us went out to get some dinner at Daisy May’s BBQ. I got a Beef Brisket Sandwich and it was okay. Not a Brother Jimmy’s by any stretch. Man I love that place.
We got back to the hotel and got ready to go and get our badges for the conference over at Yotel. It is good to know people. I was with Tim and so I was able to get into a little reception where I got to meet Veenita from I Am Elemental. We talked for a long time about so many things. She was so cool. I can’t wait to go to the I Am Elemental Booth and show you the new series of female action figures, Wisdom. That and more are in today’s vlog.
