Bummer: No Trip To NYC

My wife and I cancelled our trip to New York City this weekend because of the weather. Fortunately, we were able to get refunds and vouchers for trains, hotels, etc. We'll use those soon, as we try to get to NYC once every three months or so. We are bummed that we will not be seeing (and hearing) Ron Carter at the Blue Note tonight. And, our list of restaurants to try grows ever longer with no hope this weekend of reducing the backlog (many of the recommendations come from Serious Eats: New York).

To console myself, I am going to order a few gaming items this weekend. My warped rationalization is that I would have blown a significant amount of money on history books at Strand or another used bookstore in NYC. When it comes down to it, I am saving money, right?
