Casablanca in Bryant Park

In a word: AWFUL! I had this great idea that we would go and see a free movie at the park. The movie didn’t start until 8:30 but the lawn opened at 5:00. It’s suppose to be a whole “experience” where you stake out your spot and then eat a picnic dinner. Well, we got there about 4:30 and waited for the lawn to open. When it opened everyone ran out in a mad rush and we got stuck in the very back. Then we started the very long 3.5 hour wait. We played cards and ate dinner. The closer to movie time it got the more crowded it got! People started trying to fit 4 people on 2 feet of grass! So, the nice place that we had gotten was getting smaller and smaller. Then a couple put their stuff on top of our blanket and then proceeded to make out behind us. Disgusting! As the movie started I think everybody in the place decided they needed a cigarette. I couldn’t hear the movie well and couldn’t understand what they were saying anyway because of the accents.

Needless to say – this was the worse experience thus far! We won’t be going back next Monday for Psycho. Next time I want to see a movie I’ll pay the rental fee and watch it in my own bed!

    Let’s not lose that sense of adventure!! I glad you are being adventursome in the big city. I bet you were thinking it would be just like the movie in the park scene in “The Wedding Planner”. Sitting on the fence eating M&M’s and then dancing…That’s what I would think! Just kidding. I really am enjoying reading your stories. Take care and keep having fun!

    Love, Aunt Pam

    Oh Amber!! What an experience. Like Pam said, don’t lose your sense of adventure – because I LOVE reading about your experiences.

    Also, how do I get to put a picture beside my comments?

    Keep the stories coming, but not at the sake of your well being (the previous adventure).

    PS — I have Casablanca on tape — should I send it to you?

    Sorry that it wasn’t like the “Wedding Planner” scene. You and Bill could have made out and grossed everyone else out so that they moved away from you!
