England Day 6: So much Beatles, part 2

England Day 6: So much Beatles, part 2

After our fish & chips lunch, we hustled back over the Albert Dock for our second Beatle tour of the day. We didn’t have a lot of time in Liverpool – if we’d had more, I would have scheduled the Beatle tours on different days. It was a lot to ask of a baby. But, we had exactly one full … Continue Reading →

England Day 5: Liverpool, part 2

On our first day in Liverpool, we hit a John and Yoko exhibit at the Museum of Liverpool, thanks to a rec from a friend. They had all kinds of special memorabilia, some of which I never expected to see. The exhibit was definitely way Yoko-heavy, but she curated it, so there you go. So, John met Yoko, at the … Continue Reading →

England Day 5: Liverpool, part 1

After the Harry Potter exhibit, Jasmin dropped us at our hotel, which was walking distance to the Watford Junction train station, and we had to stay goodbye. She was an awesome host, and I very much enjoyed her cosy little apartment and getting to spend time with her – and seeing her and her namesake together. We crashed at the … Continue Reading →

Greensboro Adventure, part 2 – Paul McCartney

So when I last posted, we were going to try to surprise Janine with Katie’s appearance at the Paul McCartney concert. Despite the fact that there were multiple pay lots near the Colliseum, somehow we ended up in the same lot. We hid Katie behind everyone else, and Janine walked towards us apparently thinking “why are they all just standing … Continue Reading →

Greensboro Adventure, part 1

So Paul McCartney added a concert to his tour in Greensboro, NC and Janine and I decided to get tickets. Doug was kind of apathetic about the concert, so right away, Katie and I started scheming to try to work it out so that Katie could come in his place – and we would surprise Janine. Because of the complication … Continue Reading →

NYC, part 4

After the Beatles exhibit at Lincoln Center, Katie and I headed up towards Central Park to see Strawberry Fields, the memorial to John Lennon. Here’s the first glimpse of the Dakota, the building he lived in (and which he was killed in front of): Somehow in all my trips to NYC growing up, I never saw Strawberry Fields. Here it … Continue Reading →

NYC Beatles exhibit

Here are the photos from the Beatles exhibit that Betsy told us about. It runs through the spring at Lincoln Center, is free, and you could take pictures! It was awesome! First Katie and I hit the press conference:

NYC, part 3

Back to the NYC trip Katie and I took. One of the coolest things was that they had redecorated the Ed Sullivan Theater to look like it did 50 years ago. So no David Letterman, just The Beatles, Georgia Brown, and Tessie O’Shea.

NYC, part 2

How about some more NYC pics? I never get tired of views of the Empire State Building. Where I grew up in NJ there were several views of it, and honestly I miss being near the city. So it was really fun to be a tourist.

NYC, part 1

Here are some pics of the weekend that Katie and I took in NYC. Katie flew to me from Cleveland, and then we took the train up early Saturday morning. We bought Beatle magazines to read and enjoyed the fact that the Beatles themselves took the train between DC and NYC 50 years ago. We stayed at the Millenium Broadway … Continue Reading →

The Return

A few week ago a Beatles tribute band I’m friends with was in town and playing at the Rams Head Annapolis. Here are some pics of their show: Janine was supposed to go to the concert, but had a last minute work trip, so Amber came in her stead. Roll Over Beethoven: Rock and Roll Music: If I Fell: I … Continue Reading →

Cleveland, part 3

Stevie Nicks stage outfits. Check out her heeled boots – they’re platforms, which is a style that’s really in now. Interesting.
