Tappan Zee bridge

It’s built during the Korean War when materials were hard to find. On average, 138,000 vehicles per day pass by. The bridge was designed to last only 50 years. Now they’re building a new one (wiki) since 2013 and planned completion in 2018. I’m holding my breath. The bridge in May 2016.

A giantic movie theater

2001 Elmwood Ave,
Buffalo, NY 14207

This Regal is gigantic: at least 18 screens plus an IMAX. Bathrooms are close by but is as cold as a freezer. We took in X-Men: Apocalypse, with Jennifer Lawrence, etc. Hugh Jackman showed up for a few seconds out of, nearly two and half hours of action.

Shango the last time

This is our third time. Probably the last time. King’s graduated, hence less incentive to go up north.

Food is as usual but the service is so so. We went early and the restaurant is empty but the girl couldn’t wait to clean out the table.

Tinkle the Tinker Falls

Truxton, NY

Tinker

Tinker Falls

The water fall is a little disappointing: just some water drops falling down. But the lush trees make up for it. As we are driving up here, a heavy rain befalls on us. So the blue sky is our silver lining.
