Hello blogging world. It has been oh so long. I have been the worst at documenting events and blogging since I have been pregnant. Pregnancy has really wiped me out! I feel lucky because I didn't really have morning sickness, in the sense of throwing up an what not, but I did feel extremely fatigued and nauseous all the time if I didn't ever hour on the hour. Food has never been such a good friend. However, when I say fatigued I mean the most draining exhausting feeling you have ever felt. I was not expecting this. I mean, I know that you body is creating a human being, but no one ever really told me about how tired I would be. It was too the point where even watching TV was too much effort. I was going to bed at 7pm and would have to take a break after taking a shower.
Anyways, just the thought of blogging would make me nauseous, but I am glad that I am slowly getting out of this phase and I am able to think about it with minor nausea.
Anyways, let us go back to almost exactly a month ago when my sister, Jodi, and brother-in-law, Jordan, came to visit us once more. It is so fun living in a "destination" city because we are able to visit friends an family in the comfort of our own home.
The first day they arrived we were on the move, first with a little "entertainment" I heard about from a co-worker called "The Accomplice." I really don't know how to describe this experience except for the fake that I have never done anything like it.
Basically we met on a corner in the West Village with about 6 other people besides us. From there our "tour" guide met us and the experience started. However, the tour guide was only with us for about 15 minutes until she left us on our own suddenly (all about of the plan) leaving us to figure out our next stop with a clue she gave us. From there we were led on a 2 hour scavenger hunt/tour/mystery/detective experience where we met actors on the street (but we didn't know if they were actors or just passerby-ers) and were led to a series of different places and clues throughout the West Village to solve a mystery.
The website explains it a bit better but still doesn't give much info:
Part game, part theater, part tour. Using the sprawling backdrop of the city as its stage, utilizing elements of improv theater and scavenger hunt, Accomplice will make you laugh, think, and experience the city in a whole new way.
The Accomplice sites, naturally, are kept secret - it's all part of the fun. "Not enough information," you say? Trust us—the fun is in the surprises.
I didn't take many pictures because you have to be so involved in order to solve the mystery. We had a great group. I didn't think I would like being with strangers but it was actually really fun to get to know them.
We worked up quite an appetite throughout our adventure, and since we were in the area we went to one of my favorite (and Jordan's) restaurants in the city, Katz Deli. And of course we had to keep up with our tradition and take a picture with the Dietch Wall when we passed by! (see also, here, here and here)
