Shakespeare in the Park
We live 800 yards away, but Jen and I have been exactly once--around 1996--and Samuel and Ethan had never been. So when Samuel got an invitation from his classmate, Lindsey, and Lindsey's mom had an extra ticket for me, we figured, "Hey, let's be crazy."
The play was "As You Like It," but it's not like it mattered. The fun part is sitting in an open-air theater in Central Park at dusk with 1,000 close friends watching terrific actors perform just for you. That's what it felt like.
FYI, no photography permitted in the theater. If you look closely you may be able to see security personnel in the background coming to remind us. Luckily we were able to time-travel just before they reached us.
