If you follow me on Instagram you know that we went and had our sister day a little over a week ago and here's how everything was...
Because we had to be at the meeting spot in front of Ellen's Stardust Diner by 9:45am for the tour Kris and I caught a decently early train, which we were glad about because we were able to get ourselves some coffee and it left us with a little wiggle room in terms of getting to where we needed to be. And can I tell you, it was good thing we had that wiggle room because for some reason the subway was running wonky. The line we needed was running on a different track and it took us a little while to realize that.
After we figured everything out everything was good. We got to Ellen's with time to spare, we waited on line with the other tour attendees and chit chatted with each other before we were escorted to the On Location Tours' bus which was waiting for us across the street by our tour guide.
Once on the bus our guide introduced himself, told us about the tour we were taking and showed us a little video of with Willie Garson talking about what it's like to film a movie/television show on location in a city like New York City before we were off.
So over all the tour was really pretty good. The only thing that would have made it better is if I totally was unfamiliar with New York City, and that's on me. But yeah, if you are interested in film and going to be visiting New York City I highly recommend checking out what On Location Tours has to offer.
After the movie tour Kris and I wandered around a bit trying to figure out what we wanted to eat before heading over to the Marquis Theatre to see the matinee of On Your Feet: The Story of Emilio & Gloria Estefan -- Which was amazing, we both loved it and would totally recommend it if you enjoy Gloria's music.
It was such a great day. I love doing randomness with my sister and I can't wait for our next little random sister date day.
