Yesterday we had a fun Valentine's day! We started out by going to the matinee show of Avenue Q at the Warner Theater. I laughed when I saw the sign "Due to adult situations (like full-puppet nudity), AVENUE Q may be inappropriate for kids under 13." Yes, that's right, full-puppet nudity and sexually explicit activity. Avenue Q is based in New York City and is meant to be a "real world" for puppets.
Synopsis: Princeton, a bright-eyed college grad, moves to New York City with big dreams and a tiny bank account. He soon discovers that the only neighborhood in his price range is Avenue Q; still, the neighbors seem nice. There's Brian the out-of-work comedian and his therapist fiancée Christmas Eve; Nicky the good-hearted slacker and his roommate Rod--a Republican investment banker who seems to have some sort of secret; an Internet addict called Trekkie Monster; and a very cute kindergarten teaching assistant named Kate. And would you believe the building's superintendent is Gary Coleman?!? (Yes, that Gary Coleman.) Together, Princeton and his new found friends struggle to find jobs, dates, and their ever-elusive purpose in life.
We laughed out-loud during the whole show.
Then we ate dinner at Posto. Posto gets really crowded and they don't take reservations. We enjoyed the great wine list and tried the 4 ounce pours, so we could taste new wines without needing to get a whole glass. We started with an antipasti plate of salme and cheeses and it was delicious. Corey ordered the zuppa and steak. The zuppa that great flavor. The steak was quite large and somewhat tough. I ordered the tortelli which was stuffed with spinach, ricotta and walnuts in a Parmesan sauce. Yum! Overall, we had a great experience and would go back again. We saved room for dessert to eat at home.
