Yesterday in NYC - ESPN Meetings, Porkslap Farmhouse Ale and a Bar Full of Magicians

Times Square

Grabbed a Jamba Juice in Times Square. Snapped this shot on way back to hotel (W Times Square).

Checking in for out meeting @ ESPN. Never noticed before that the place in the lobby is actually named the ABC Cafe.

Had a couple of beers before dinner @ Landmarc in the Time Warner center. This round: Porkslap Farmhouse Ale. (Note - I didn't partake in the Porkslap; feeling now like I missed out.)

Snapped this from the front seat of our cab back to the W.

We decided a nite cap was in order, so we stopped into the Joshua Tree ... where we found ourselves in the middle of some spring break reunion from the University of Miami and a gathering of off-duty magicians and their fans. One guy literally had a rabbit in a cage at the bar.

Road House was on the TV, though, which was a nice diversion. The bar had multiple big flat screens - not sure why I took the picture of the 13" TV behind the bar.
