It has been awhile, hasn't it? Needless to say, I've been caught up this semester with a tremendous amount of work. But now that it has pretty much all settled down, I'm ready to get back to blogging! <3
This past Saturday, my family and I took a trip to the city to watch the Christmas Spectacular! This was my first time seeing it and I was excited that we were able to score some good orchestra seats.
Being in the city just around this time of the year is just such a great feeling. Christmas music is playing along the streets and all the street decor are out. There are also these little shops that are set up near Bryant Park for the holidays. You can buy a bunch of self-crafted and small branded stores trying to sell their trinkets as gifts for the holidays. I suggest checking them out and maybe grabbing some unique presents.
I've never been inside Radio City so when I stepped in I was greeted by a beautiful chandelier which I hear is made up of mostly Swarovski crystals if not entirely. The stage and amphitheatre were so pretty. The Rockettes put on such a great show as usual. Looking stunning and precise as ever. I was also impressed by the little girl that played Clara during the Nutcracker piece.
We ended up eating at Ruby Foo's for dinner which was nearby. I've never eaten there but I was pleasantly surprised because I didn't expect much when I sat down. Their sushi were pretty unique and their soups are delicious.
I definitely think the Christmas Spectacular is a must see during the holidays. Although it felt a lot shorter (90 minutes) than I imagined it to be, it definitely gets the whole family to spend time together to watch an amazing show.
