I Hate Times Square but...

The other day I had to go to Times Square for a pretty good reason.  Pee-wee Herman and Foursquare teamed up for two days of amazingness where Paul Reubens (dressed as Pee-wee of course) trekked around New York City, checking in and tweeting at each location, welcoming fans to come and join in and meet him.  If you checked into one of these spots, you get a Pee-wee badge and those people were eligible to receive a prize from Pee-wee himself later at the Sondheim Theatre where The Pee-wee Herman Show will be for the next 3 months.

Then Pee-wee came and all hell broke loose and let's just say I had a major Pee-wee fail on my end and managed to get zero good pictures.  Can you spot him above?  My prize: A red bow tie and a sticker and supposedly another prize is coming from Foursquare.  

After that craziness, my friend Jon and I went to Pop Tarts World, a pop up store that opened in Times Square dedicated to everything Pop Tarts including weird treat concoctions and limited edition Pop Tarts.

We settled on Pop Tarts Sushi - a grounded up mix of Pop Tarts treats that are sweet but look oddly like meat and wrapped in Fruit Roll Ups.  Interesting but pretty tasty. 

And that, my friends, is what I have been up to lately.
