It was a holiday highlight, a weekend in New York City to remember. Friday evening, a group of us went to listen The Mike Stern Band at the iconic NYC music club, The Iridium. The band featured Randy Brecker (trumpet), Dennis Chambers (drums), and Tom Kennedy (bass). Mike Stern’s delightful and talented wife, Leni, joined for a few numbers. After the show, we walked to Time Square, and also visited the Christmas Tree at the Rockefeller Center; not to mention the window displays at Saks 5th Avenue! It was a super night out and good start to the Full Moon Winter Festival at Padma NYC which started bright and early Saturday morning with Dynamic Meditation. The festival program was a delight from start to finish. Meera’s sushi dinner was the ultimate finale to an amazing day — and weekend!
