Day Four

Eventually the rain died down, and we had lunch at shake shack despite
the downpour. It was every bit as delicious and fattening as we'd
heard. After lunch, we headed to Madame Tussaud's, the wax museum, it
was a lot of fun. The best part of the day was dinner. G'd researched
restaurants before we came and made reservations for us at Becco, an
Italian place with great reviews. Nick's Aunt Holly, on his mother's
side (all the greeks and puerto ricans are on his father)s side) lives
in Manhattan. Her husband, a frenchman, is the chief concierge at the
Plaza hotel. We invited them to come to Becco with us, and I'm so glad
that we did. The maitre'd, or however you spell that, was all over us
trying to impress Rafael. We got so much free wine it was ridiculous,
and the food was phenomenal. I was pretty giddy by the time we got to
the empire state building.
