another New York experience

On Friday, I went into the city to see the Alexander McQueen exhibit at the Met with my mother-in-law, Mama J, and my sister-in-law, Kelsey. This exhibit has been going on since May and has been extended two times because of the popularity. Kelsey had gone with Brad and Jacki to see the exhibit previously and was told there was a 2.5 hour wait. We wanted to give it a try anyways.

When we got to the Met, they had only been open about 5 minutes. Lines went off both sides of the steps at the Met and we chose one of the sides.

Doesn't look so bad here right?

 Oh, but wait, this is all the way down the block. The line wrapped around about 5 times.

 The line from the top of the stairs. We'd been in line for an hour and we hadn't even gotten our admission tickets yet.

Once, we had our admissions tickets (and found out the actual line for the exhibit had been closed), we waited another 3 hours. 

The architecture of the Met is so beautiful.

Obviously, photography wasn't allowed in the exhibit. And even though I know little about fashion and designers and even less about art, I was still in awe of how this exhibit was put together. Alexander McQueen was a genius designer and yet still had many problems of his own. His designs were amazing. Each gallery had its own theme. I enjoyed seeing his works evolve.

Later, we went to this little pub to relax while waiting for Bry and Devon, Kelsey's boyfriend, to get out of work. This little place called Brinkley's was the cutest little mismatched pub in SoHo.

How cute is this place!

Love the stools!

Then Kels and I met up with Bry and Devon right near Grand Central and we had drinks and appetizers.
