The Room Where It Happens – our day in NYC to see Hamilton on Broadway

So last week was a big week! Brooks started pre-school, Graham turned two, I chopped about 5 inches off my hair and WE WENT TO SEE HAMILTON!

Big things happening!

We bought these tickets almost 10 months ago, and FINALLY the day came, right before Graham’s birthday! We got tickets for the 2:00pm show so we were able to take the train up in the morning, grab lunch, see the show have a little bit to eat and head home. It was the best day!

We started out at 30th Street Station in Philly to catch our train, and obviously a day without the kids was a easy and relaxing one! Grab a coffee, grab a magazine and chill.

This was my first time checking out the Porch at 30th Street – which is right outside 30th Street Station. Such a cute little area with a great view of the city. Obviously, it was a overcast morning, but no rain {yay!} My mom and I headed outside to check it out while we waiting for our train.

After an uneventful and quick Amtrak ride to Penn Station, we headed out in NYC. It was still a little overcast, but no rain, which was awesome. We headed over to the Richard Rodgers theater to check it out. I wanted to get some photos outside the theater before it got too crowded, which turned out to be a great idea!

No crowds and great photo opportunities! If you are going to see the show, make sure you stop by the theatre a few hours before the doors open so you can get some good pictures under the signs!

Our crew was pumped for Hamilton – but first, lunch!

I had a bunch of recommendations from friends, family + fabulous readers {thank you!} and we decided to go around the corner in Times Square to Dos Caminos.

Guacamole + Margaritas?! Yes, please!

We had the traditional guacamole for the table {it was DELICIOUS} andI had the Grilled Grapefruit margarita – {riazul blanco tequila, grilled grapefruit, agave} Perfect to start the meal!

Here’s a look at our fabulous meal:


Sizzling Arrachera – grilled skirt steak, caramelized onions, guacamole, pico de gallo, wheat tortillas

Dos Enchiladas – roasted chicken, queso menonita, mole poblano & tres chiles sauce

Asada Tacos – natural skirt steak, caramelized onions, queso cotija, guacamole

Chiles Rellenos – soufflé battered poblano chiles stuffed with mexican cheeses, salsa mestiza, crema mexicana

The meal was insanely delicious. I’m bummed that there isn’t a Dos Caminos in Philadelphia – because I would eat there, on the regular! Everything was so tasty! If you are headed to NYC anytime soon and are into Mexican food – be sure to check out this restaurant – I believe there are a few locations in NYC. So worth it!

Then it was time for the show! AH!

We got pretty good seats and had a great view of the state. The theatre is pretty small, so I think most seat are good, but I loved being able to see all the facial expressions of the performers. Really happy with our seats.

And obviously I am a fan of the music, I’ve been jamming out to it for over a year, so I knew what I was getting myself into with the show, but seeing it live, in person, on broadway was such a treat. And such a amazing experience. Our whole group loved it, everyone had a blast – the actors were insanely talented and the music, in person was so beautiful.

If you have a chance to go see Hamilton on Broadway – don’t think about it, just go!

You can thank me later.

I’m already counting down until 2018 when Hamilton comes to Philly! I can’t wait to see it again {and be in the room where it happens!}

Are you a Hamilton fan? Have you seen it in NYC, Chicago or LA?
