Had a great day today! Went into New York City to see "Million Dollar Quartet," a musical about that special day in 1956 when Elvis, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins and Jerry Lee Lewis jammed together at Sun Studio in Memphis.
The show was great: superb performances threaded with history. The whole audience jumped with joy at classic songs blasted with energy.
It was especially appropriate for me to wear my beloved red jacket from Lansky Bros. I bought the jacket when I visited Memphis last year. Bernie Lansky designed clothes for Elvis during his early years and this particular design (with vertical stripes) is exactly what Elvis wore before he became famous.
We also had a fabulous meal at The Delta Grill, one of my favorite places. There are over 9,000 restaurants in NYC and only one serves New Orleans food: this one. Even better, it re-creates the atmosphere of NOLA in every respect. (I know this because I went to NOLA last Mardi Gras.)
By the way, what do you think of that shirt? :)
I want to go to there!ReplyDelete
Looks like you're having a fabulous time. The last play I went to in NYC was Exit the King with Susan Sarandon and OMG, what an amazing play. I'm a big SS fan which made it that much more magical.
Sounds like fun... and I love that crazy blue shirt!ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by;)ReplyDelete
Lovely blog by the way!
Looks like you had a great time!ReplyDelete
Oooo NYC ! Love the blue shirt in the second photo ! Would love a dress in that material.ReplyDelete
Sounds like a great day. That hat you saw is too cute! It doesn't get cold enough here to wear anything like that. By the way, a fascinator is the feathery fancy thing you wear in your hair when you go to the horse races. What do you guys call them??ReplyDelete
Looks like you had a blast! Im so jealous xxReplyDelete
Love your pictures of NYC and really love your shirt! The fabric is wonderful - it looks like a William Morris Liberty print. By the way, is that snow I can see on the ground in the last shot? *sigh*!ReplyDelete
I need to tell you all about Hillbrow sometime.ReplyDelete
Your trip into the city looks awesome and the shirt and jacket are so kewl. Especially like the stripes on your jacket.
Thanks for mentioning me on your blog - that's so sweet of you. Guess some things are deeply ingrained - I can imagine I'd have battled with the miles and fahrenheit had our moved materialised ;-), but my daughter seems to be managing just fine.
You're a real honey. Hope your day is fabulous
Love the red jacket. Didn't Elvis wear one of those in one of his movies or on an album cover? I seem to remember that for some odd reason. NYC looks like it was fun!ReplyDelete
Thanks, guys. It was fun and the weather was good for this time of year.ReplyDelete

Winter here isn't too bad and usually starts in December. I've lived through worse in other places (upstate NY; MA). Minnesota is certainly colder.ReplyDelete
LOVE NY! Looks like you had an amazing time!ReplyDelete
