After the concerts, the rest of the trip was for touring, eating, cruising, entertainment and more eating!  The Huber delegation got together with Kathy Clark, daughter of former BCB trumpeter Richard Clark. Kathy is now a casting assistant with Warner Brothers and told all of us about her fascinating career. Kathy suggested Doneli's, a hole-in the-wall Italian eatery along about 40th Street. It was wonderful. Melanie and I, being the parents we are, insisted on walking our friend's daughter back to her subway stop. Kathy giggled, but I think appreciated the "Mom and Pop" touch.

   I believe nearly every site in Manhattan was visited by the people in the BCB. Here is a short list of just some of the sites visited:  Central Park, the Metropolitan Opera House, Carnegie Hall, the American Museum of Natural History, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Macys, Chinatown, Greenwich Village, NBC Studios, Rockefeller Center, Fox News, St. Patrick's Cathedral, Radio City Music Hall, Tavern On The Green, the apartment building and church seen in the movie "Ghostbusters", the USS Intrepid, Ground Zero, the Late Show with David Letterman, the CBS Morning Show (where Joey Dierdorf got to sit with the anchors), the NBC Today Show (where several members shook hands with Katie, Matt and Al), and even the Hello Deli of Letterman fame where Janelle Huber briefly spoke with and taped owner Rupert G. who is often interviewed by Letterman. Other celebrities seen through the week by our group included famed jazzman Les Paul, the rock group Phish and Peter Boyle of "Everybody Loves Raymond".
