NYC – Things to DO

Grab Your Group & GO SEE Paradise Square!

I totally get why the Tony voters lavished Paradise Square with all sorts of voting love. We had a small, but committed frequent flyer group to see it last week and what a great experience it was…

New York City – So Absolutely Not Dead

I wonder what all of those people who wrote all of those doom and gloom articles and posts about New York City being dead are doing these days? Writing retractions? Finding some other negativity to spew into the world? Who, in their right mind, would bet against this town that is home to the scrappiest, most resourceful, and creative individuals that can be amassed in one place?

A New York State of Mind

For those of us who live in NYC, the city IS the star of all of our shows. We are all the supporting actors. I for one look forward to being back in the city soon in support of it and all it has to offer. Who is ready to support Broadway with me?

Going Back to Broadway…Collective Effervescence Personified

On the evening of August 4th, 2021 at 8pm Stacie (my GYGG partner in chief) and I had the good fortune to GO back to BROADWAY. Doors that had been shuttered for some 500 days were flung wide open at the August Wilson Theater to welcome us and our fellow giddy audience members back to the theater in the form of a play called Pass Over….

Collective Effervescence

What a winsome aphorism! So many syllables, fun to say, and a trifle tricky to spell. What pops into your brain when you envision this term?

For the LOVE of Central Park (and because IT needs US)

As we take baby steps towards the business of carefully researching shows and connecting calendar dates to them, negotiating prices and opening our box office with the largest virtual red ribbon I can find; I must acknowledge the outsize gratitude and love I have for Central Park. Thank you Central Park for being such an easy and grand stage to love in the absence of emoting for Broadway….

Taking Three Generous Bites of the Big Apple

Throughout this era of the pandemic I have been on a constant quest for the covid silver lining. There have been surprisingly quite a few. That said, I would give every single one of them up to get back lives that were lost or seriously altered in a negative fashion. But as I cannot make that happen, the quest continues.

So here I am delivering to you as a big shiny red apple in a form of a silver lining that NOW is the time to pop your mask on and take FULL advantage of the many, many institutions and dining establishments that are open and eager to accommodate your visit…

3 Ways to Grab Your SMALL Group & GO!

Early days in the pandemic I spent a good dose of time regretting the moniker of this operation. Grab Your Group and GO was pretty much the antithesis statement of what to do in a pandemic. I got over it, but here we are a year later still unable to grab too many people or go to too many places. Yet we now have threads of hope so I offer some ideas for you to Grab Your little mini Group and GO…

Why the Walk & Talks?

In October I introduced the Walk and Talk into the Grab Your Group and GO repertoire. The question has been asked, “Why the Walk and Talks?” But I think the better question is, “What took me so long?”

Grab Your Group & GO UNDER THE SEA

Usually when I gather a group, I am more often than not experiencing the selected show/activity for the first time along with the group. This gives me a semi-free pass on my decision-making skills if whatever I selected is a bust. I love the freedom of a free pass. But sometimes I visit a place and then make the determination to bring the group back, like recently when a group of 25 of us made our way to the National Geographic Encounter: Ocean Odyssey…

If You Build It They Will Come, Part 2: Say Something Bunny!

My friend Phyllis clued me into Say Something Bunny! with an urgency that indicated this was not an optional suggestion (thank you Phyllis). So after some cursory research I assembled a small rogue gang (“the theater” accommodates a MAX of 25) and signed us all up for this off off off off off off Broadway performance….
