A few years ago i had taken a very good friend out to eat in Manhattan. She was with her daughter, who was about 10 or 11 years old at the time. Instead of going to the movies i decided to take them to Jekyll&Hyde's Theme Restaurant. I figured my friend loves to eat and it would entertain her daughter as well. The entrance to this theme restaurant of horror was very cool with actors dressed as ghouls. Once the doors open, we were placed in what appeared to be a small room. And that's when the ceiling slowly dropped with spikes moving down apon us. My friends daughter placed her hands over her face thinking this may be the end. I remember her grabbing my leg and hiding her face. And just as the spikes were nearly on top of us, the doors open to the main part of the restaurant. That was very cool!! My friend and her daughter couldn't believe all the Ghouls and Monsters walking around inside. It was packed but we got seats after half an hour. Once we were seated our menus were brought to us byThe Black Widow. It looked like she had on a wedding gown with tarantulas crawling all over her. While we were waiting for our food we happen to notice this amazing Horror show being performed with flashing lights and sounds like aFrankenstein movie. This place made my friend and daughter date a perfect evening!! After we finished eating we decided to look around. They have several floors and each one is different from the other. My favorite was the room that remind me of a library. With books that covered the walls and having to push on some of those books to find the bathroom. Very cool!!!!! So here's the deal. A date with a mother and daughter, $45.00 for dinner, good food and a horror show!!! I'll go again!!!
I have been a drummer and a writer all of my life, and I knew I wanted to work in entertainment industry; I just wasn't sure how I would be able to get the ball rolling. I heard about the recording connection when I was looking for Audio schools to attend after college, and quickly realized that it would be more beneficial and cheaper than any audio institution. I knew I wanted to be in New York, so I did my research and asked to be put in a very prominent recording studio. From day one I knew it was the place for me, relaxed atmosphere, great staff of good people, amazing room located in the center of the universe. I started applying myself from day one trying to be proactive and helpful wherever I could, and I became acquainted with the staff and regular studio goers. As time progressed, I started sitting in on more sessions and meeting artists, producers, engineers and accomplished entrepreneurs and personalities who were able to offer me real opportunity. After several months I was taken on as an intern. I learned so much about working in a studio environment that first six months; it's hard to even fathom how far I've come in such a short time (Not even taking into account the technical aspects). By being outgoing, humble, and making relationships with the people I met in-studio; I was able to sell myself and create connections. I played with some bands, produced some songs with people, and am now focused solely on a project I am embarking on (with my partner and co-apprentice from the recording connection, where we work with the same mentor. We are two pieces of the band for one of Wu-Music Groups newest artists and potentially touring NYC and maybe even South America!!!'
The Regency is a very nice hotel. The staff is very friendly and the rooms are comfortable. The only complaints I have are room service, internet connectivity, room size. The room service was expensive which can be expected. But add on top of that a charge per person and % on top of that. You can get internet connectivity for an extra $14.95 a day. In today’s internet enabled world this should be free. They days I did pay for internet connectivity Netflix streaming played with minimal buffering through my laptop. The room was a decent size but for the prize it could be larger. Let’s talk about the positives of the Regency. Once again I must mention the friendly staff. Then there is the location. You are two blocks from Central Park. Two blocks from the subway. Also if you want some good take-out I would suggest www.gourmetpark.com which is a two minute walk from the Regency. The one big reason we chose the Regency was because it was pet friendly. Our dog got better treatment than I did. They had a dog mat, bowls; dog treats, and dog bags (for when we walked him through-out the day). He got the royal treatment. All in all if the Regency is in your budget it’s a wonderful place to stay.
