Shorts! - And Reservation Timing Help

If you both are wearing "walking" shorts...Bermuda length with a nice top...sure

but if she is wearing "Daisy Dukes" - super short shorts...definitely not tasteful
avoid flip flops and socks with sandals!

try to have some class

why Phantom of the Opera?...so many other better shows on Broadway.

Casual Post-Yankees Game Steakhouse in Manhattan

Will this be a Saturday or Sunday game day?
Only asking because you will be dressed very casually and some places might
not allow you in wearing shorts, t-shirts and sneakers.

Budget...including drinks, tip and tax?

17th birthday dinner nice restaurant

check out HILL COUNTRY
http://www.hillcountryny.com/locations

they have a downstairs room at 30 W. 26th Street

you can contact their catering/events person to discuss your budget
and see what you can get for $600. (Is the $600 your final final total
OR is that the food & beverage total BEFORE tax and tip are added.

)

You might want to think of having a buffet set-up.

Do you have a certain part of the city in mind?
Uptown...Downtown...East Side...West Side...Chinatown?

Birthday cake

I know you prefer the West Side, but, in my opinion, the best NYC bakery for birthday cakes is Two Little Red Hens on Second Ave, between 85th & 86th Sts.

Great variety, great taste. Worth every penny.

When did Friday's on 604 5th Ave open?

Until 2001, I used to work at Rockefeller Center and frequented the Barnes & Noble that used to be next door. Friday's has been there long before 2001.
For quite a while, they were the only restaurant on Fifth Ave. above 42nd St.

Honeymoon meal

When in September? What are your likes and dislikes?
Where are you staying?

The United Nations General Assembly totally cripples midtown, the east side and upper east side. This year's dates are from Sept. 15 - 28. Every head of state + Obama + (I believe) the Pope will be attending. Streets are closed down and traffic is at a complete standstill.

Fashion week is from Sept. 10 - 17
Designers, models and fashionistas invade NYC
