Personal Notes:
(By Phoebe) Catherine and Isabelle's favorite restaurant in NYC is "Mars 2112" where their Nana took them when she visited. The Broadway district restaurant is complete with a spaceship transport to a Martian dining area where wait staff entertain guests in full Martian costume with lively songs. They even dance with the kids. My lucky children were also entertained in Manhattan's lovely Upper East Side by their generous Aunt Jane and Uncle Rick and their beautiful cousin Tacy. Lucky ducks.
