On Wednesday, one of my oldest friends in New York, R, and I agreed to meet at The Musuem of Modern Art to check out the new Rain Room exhibition. We planned on getting there nice and early so that we could see the exhibit, walk around the museum a bit and then grab a boozy lunch at The Modern. When we got to the check-in desk, however, we were informed that there was already a four-hour wait to get into the Rain Room. Now I don’t know about you, but to me there is very little in life that is worth a four-hour wait in line. Okay, maybe if the line was for a new kidney or something, or a really really good cupcake…..
Anywho, we decided to pass, and instead took our time making our way through the various floors of the museum. Snaps of my favorite pieces on display are below.
While I enjoy much of modern art there are times when I really just don’t get it. For instance….
Having made our way back to the first floor, we decided to enjoy a refreshment outside in the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden.
FINALLY it was time for lunch at The Modern’s Bar Room. (The food here is really good. Highly recommend if you’re in Midtown and just want a great lunch. Good spot for a business meeting too.)
We got a chance to catch up, saw some amazing works of art, and stuffed our faces. Doesn’t get much better than that.
PS: Later that night I saw on my Instagram feed that Heidi Klum (don’t judge) had visited the Rain Room that very same day. I’m guessing she didn’t have to wait for four hours.
