December 2005 - The Bitter End - New York City
We headed off to NYC with a group in a van and a few in a plane! We were in store for quite an amazing weekend. Here is the Doubletree where Someone's Sister stayed right in the heart of Times Square.
The Doubletree became "home base" as we
toured the city.
On the first night there, we all set out for fun, but as you can see, it was really cold! Brrrr.
Rudolph the red nosed Katherine!
Some folks we met while out.
Jordan and Spongebob
In NYC, there are surprises around every corner.
Here we are going to see little bow peep!
Central Park and Elvis?.
Some ice skated,
and showed off..
and some pondered the big city life.
By the end of the day it was obvious to anyone watching that we were not "locals" no matter how much we tried to blend in.
Georgia reading the morning stock report while enjoying her coffee.
And she made a little extra cash too.
Somehow she got out of that one. If you know Georgia, that would not surprise you.
We took the ferry to the Statue of Liberty with Laura in her chef hat.
Hey Shamali! Posing in her best New York Chic.
Ta da, here we are.
OH, here she is.
MaryAnne (middle - bottom row) was nice enough to take many pictures of us on this day!
An excellent shot of Lady Liberty captured by Chris.
On top of the Empire State Building trying to keep warm with a Laura blanket.
And there were rides in the van - a 13 passenger van with Chris as the driver.
Finally, what we had been waiting for. The famous club, The Bitter End!
Paul Colby, the owner himself.
Many have played this venue such as Billy Joel, Jay Leno, Sarah McLachlan, and the Indigo Girls.
The excellent service staff.
Thanks to The Shanna Sharp Band for making us feel so welcome!
Laura, guitar and the electric shirt.
The best part of the night is always talking
with the audience.
Jennifer is an old friend who came out to hear us play.

This was by far the most amazing trip. We do hope to make it back to the Bitter End soon.
