Ducks at the Peabody Hotel

Member Rating 3 out of 5 by Tavia on November 10, 2004

I swear to you that we did not intend to see the Peabody ducks. I swear on my passport! But we were, um, thirsty, really wanted a cocktail, and were right next to the Peabody Hotel. In fact, when we first walked into the lobby bar, we were kind of miffed (as only New Yorkers can be) that there was not a free seat in the house, and why were all these people standing by the fountain, blocking my view of the cute bartender?!

The ducks, my dear. The man in the red coat cued the music, and the ducks shook the water off their tail feathers one by one and charmingly waddled out of the fountain and out of the lobby. Children were gleeful; moms took pictures of the glee.

Well, now that that's over, let's grab a seat and have a cocktail. And so we did, just one, since they were strong and sweet, and we were being encroached upon by burly football fans from the left. And so should you in this city of music, whenever possible, although preferably not around 5pm if you take your cocktails as seriously as we do.
