Go Ahead, Bite the Big Apple!
“Don’t mind the maggots,” adds Mick Jagger on “Shattered.”
Although the airfare might be getting a bit dear with just 72 hours until flight time, there’s still space to spend a long weekend with Assemblywoman Sharon Quirk-Silva, a Fullerton Democrat, and her guest Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez, also an Orange County Democrat. The $249 per room rate for two nights at The Palace is a pretty good deal.
Besides the inevitable fundraiser with the representative and the Assemblywoman — hopefully just cocktails and weenies and not a full-blown sit-down dinner — there’s a busy schedule of events in the self-proclaimed Capital of the World.
Perhaps “Culture and Continuity: The Jewish Journey” at, not surprisingly, The Jewish Museum.
Sounding a bit more avant garde is an exhibit of abstract paintings by Michael Katz at Tibet House called “Form Is Emptiness.”
In the theaters of the City That Never Sleep’s are “Wicked” at the Gershwin, “Lion King” at the Minskoff, “Phanton” at the Majestic and “Nice Work If You Can Get It” with Matthew Broderick at the Imperial.
There are plenty of other theater options too including Mamma Mia!,” “Jersey Boys,” “Chicago” and “Mary Poppins.”
There’s also an Atlantic 10 basketball tournament and, if the kids are younger and included on the adventure, there are performances at the DR2 Theater of “Bunnicula,” a musical about a family who adopts an orphaned rabbit with odd habits and sharp fangs.
