Sex and the City Tour

On our way to get some bagels and "schmear" :wink:

@ Aidan & Steve's bar "Scout" actually Onieal's

Discounted cosmos at noon? Sure, why not.

On the very comfortable, air conditioned tour bus

"and I'm thinking, ya know, this is New York and this is the pest guy and I got something, he doesn't know what it is...and that ain't good!"

Carrie's stoop on Perry St between Bleecker and 4th

Magnolia cupcakes for lunch

They were actually from Billy's Bakery. Very sneaky.

Bleecker Park

It was such a perfect morning. We met up in front of the Plaza Hotel and boarded a bus full of SATC fans and a very energetic "Sexpert" (tour guide). This girl knew her SATC!

The tour basically takes you around Midtown, the Meatpacking District, Soho and the Village while the guide points out locations used in the tv series and movie and plays the actual clips on screens located around the bus. You get a little "behind the scenes" scoop and trivia as well. Some stops included Buddakan, Bleecker Street for shopping and cupcakes & "Scout", Aidan & Steve's bar for a little afternoon delight.

I had some reservations about the tour thinking it might be cheesy but it was a lot of fun and a perfect way to build excitement for the movie which we purposely did not see until after the tour.

By the way, Carrie's stoop is no longer a stop on the tour. Residents were complaining about it being a nuisance. I don't blame them. Also, Magnolia's cupcakes have been replaced with Billy's because Magnolia couldn't handle the demand. Werd.
