Our good friend Derk has moved to the big N-Y-C. Since he's a simple southern boy, he needs some help knowing what to do with a city that's actually got culture.

Let's help Derk find something to do with his time.

Sure, Arlington is only a few miles from Dallas, but, how can you beat the Yankees? The subway will take you right there.

Museums
Lots of art museums out there. The Metropolitan Museum of Art is awfully hard to beat. Perhaps Louvre has it beat, but who wants to go hang out with all them Frenchies?

Restaurants
Katz's deli is at 205 East Houston Street. It's expensive ($12 for a pastrami sandwich, and it's hardly enough for 1), but it's the best sandwich you'll ever have.

Performance
I just got back from New York, and checked out "The Upright Citizens Brigade". It's run by Amy Poehler from SNL (who Derk once mentioned he liked), and there's always big names playing there. When I saw them half the cast was made up of current SNL players, writers, and other big names in improv comedy.

It's the Sunday at 8pm show you want. http://www.ucbtheatre.com/ny/

Compleat Strategist is supposed to be the best store in NYC, and it certainly had a fine collection.

Make sure you check out which places to go to before you go there. LOTS of places to eat. You will be left guessing. I remember on a business trip the person waiting asked me what I wanted to make the bill out for. I told him, "What I paid". Sheesh, I am NOT corrupt :-).

The real debate is what's the best in the 5 boroughs, but I'll stick with two of the oldest: Grimaldi's or Lombardi's.
