Yesterday we went to the Gazillion Bubbles Show in NYC, followed by a great trip to Johnny Rocket’s (founded on June 6, 1986, by Ronn Teitelbaum of Los Angeles, California, and “crafted as a ‘nongimmicky’ recreation of the 1940s-vintage malt shops of his childhood.” The first restaurant was established as a 20-stool counter operation on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles.). This one was on 3rd Avenue and 56th and about three blocks down from my next stop on the Great Birthday Tour of New York City; Dylans Candy Bar (www.dylanscandybar.com) on 3rd and 60th. You can look this one up for yourself on Wikipedia. UK residents will just have to imagine a Willie Wonka Bar with more Chocolate and Candy than you could eat in a million years. So far only available in the USA.
Today is actually my Official Birthday. 21 Gun Salute and Parade down Fifth Avenue please! To celebrate I went to The Royal Hanneford Circus in Westchester County Center, White Plains. No idea where the Royal term comes from but somehow sincerely doubt it has the Royal Charter. Anyway in Westchester we tend to ignore those minor details and just enjoy the elephants for their own minus the Maharajahs. Circus time. Followed by Healthy Pancakes at the City Limits Diner. Yuch. No-one ate them. We like unhealthy ones. Birthday Cake to come. Hope that nobody threw in any organic ingredients into this one. Reasonable chance it will be yummy. O
