Exploring Owego, NY

So the pictures from our little mini trip to New York are pathetic.  Our main purpose for traveling to New York was to explore Owego, NY and the LockHeed Martin that resides there. 

Dinner at the airport.  The bloody mary was named the Weekender.  It was a meal in itself.

We flew in on Wednesday night.  First Class!  Supposed we could have asked a flight attendant to take a pic of us.

Drove to Scranton, PA to our hotel.  We made it to a great Sushi restaurant which was across the street from Farley’s for all The Office fans.  Wonder why Michael Scott never goes to the Suishi or Thai restaurant for his lunch break? Early in the am (3am) I woke up sick so we were off to a rough start.  So after escaping an Urgent Care visit we managed to drive to Owego with no bathroom stops!  We spent a lot of time talking to HR and Brett’s potential boss’s boss.  They were great!  The plant was also huge and pretty impressive in comparison to Eagan.  I got lost in the engineer conversation after the word helicopter, but I got to see a huge plane because they weren’t doing any top secret work on it at the moment.  On our way back to Scranton we drove through Vestal which is the city that most people live in.  It pretty much looked like Eagan.  That night we had Thai, met a nice bartender named Bob who let us take pictures on the bar,

and played some video games.  I beat Brett a few times!  Go Red!

Scranton was nice. 

New York City was exciting!!  We went to Avenue Q, ate at a great Cuban restaurant, and stayed at the Waldorf = Astoria.  Luckily no one was around when Brett slid down the banister.
