Our Cinderella Evening in NYC!

Well, this is my last post about NYC, and what an evening we had! When my father was stationed in Naples, Italy, he befriended a young Captain by the name of George. He was single and was often invited to our home for a home cooked meal. I think he has been trying to re-pay the hospitality my parents showed him ever since! George met his wife Carol in Italy, and has done very well as an attorney in New Jersey. He and Carol generously treat us to amazing "nights on the town" whenever we are in the area. This was no exception!

We were told to be ready by 3:00, that we would be having dinner in the city, and then be treated to a Broadway show. Well, low and behold, a limo pulled up to my aunt's house at 3:00. We pinched ourselves to be sure we weren't dreaming, then got into the limo and headed for New York City!

We were treated to an amazing dinner at Del Frisco's. My filet was cooked perfectly and I could cut it with a table knife. The desserts were out of this world! The service was top notch.


 Soon it was time to head to the show. The limo picked us up right outside the restaurant where he had dropped us off and away we went.

It was amazing to see veteran actors and actresses, still active and using their talents at the ages of 86 and 82. We really enjoyed the show, but before we knew it we were being picked up by the limo and driven back to New Jersey. I loved seeing the city at night!

Many thanks to our friends George and Carol for blessing us with a Cinderella evening in NYC.


  1. What a fun night out! I love that you got to take a limo into the city!

  2. wow, you all looked like celebrities out there. And I haven't heard of The Best Man but I sure do recognize a lot of the actors in that play. Glad you had a great evening.
