I am writing about a 1-week trip I am going to take. I will be going to both New York and LA. 


Well, I'm just about to head out on my coast-to-coast trip.  Tonight, I am taking the red eye to New York.  My brother is planning on meeting me at La Guardia tomorrow morning when I get in.  We'll probably drop off my stuff and then cruise around town.  I love walking around New York.  There is so much to see and do and so many cool restaurants and bars to explore.  We're going to pick a rendevouz point so I can meet up with some other friends who live there.  We'll probably do some bar hopping.  If we get sloshed we can always hop in a cab although I don't want to burn through my whole budget in one night. I'll be in New York until Friday.

From there I will head to LA to meet my friend Matt. Matt is a stand up comedian, so it's possible that we might hit a comedy club.  I know he doesn't have any gigs scheduled, but he has a lot of other friends in the comedy biz.  Matt said he might be able to score some Dodgers tickets.  That would be a blast since I haven't been to a Major League game since the Giants played at Candlestick.  

I'll only be gone a week so I'll have to do my best to see and do as much as I can.
