Day 8 - It's all gone Abercrombie mad!

Today we hit the shops! But beforehand we started the day with our customary starbucks!

Believe it or not there is only ONE Abercrombie and Fitch Store in Manhattan! Well we found it down around the south port ferry area. The store was limited, but had a great selection of men’s goods, which we won’t complain about. I think we bought half the store, between us we spent over $600 on clothes!!!

After this we made our way to Century 21 for some discount hunting. We ended up buying a coffee maker – you ask why, well the hotel doesn’t supply tea making facilities, and as Vinnie LOVES his herbals, we simply had to buy something.

Oh again today it was very hot. We caught one temperature gauge reading 31c.

We made it back to the hotel in time for a quick freshen up before heading over to the taping of the Late Show with David Letterman. This show is very popular, and is aired at 11:30pm on CBS. We used to get it on Sky One, but I believe it’s now only available on ITV2. The audience where warmed up outside the studio. We where seated on the balcony, so we won’t be seen on TV. It was great seeing the studio set, in fact the show is recorded as live, so one take only. But there was very little audience interaction. The headline guest was Rachael Weiss, the second guest was some comedian who was boring. The music guest was a new band called Mars 31.

Anyhow, we’re back in the hotel nows, getting re-freshened up before we go explore the night scene here.
