Today was our "Un-Un-Official Bonus Day" and was put together as a way to help our trip participants get over some jet lag, and it in a way that TPR knows best! Getting some credits, going into New York City, and eating our way through the Big Apple via Scott's Pizza Tours.

Let's check out some photos and videos!

Image
The first photo from TPR's North East USA Tour! Do you "LIKE" it?

Image
Our first "un-official" park of the trip! A credit whore stop at Bowcraft!

Image
Yes, there is a "big" credit here!

Image
"CREDIT!!!"

Image
It's totally a "legit" ride! Check out the VIDEO!



Image
"First un-un-official credit of the trip!"

Image
The trains are kind of funky.

Image
And yes, there was a Dragon Wagon for the real whores!



Image
Thank you Bowcraft! Next stop... NEW YORK CITY, BABY!

Image
TPR is heading to NYC!

Image
Go through the Lincoln Tunnel - get an iPad 2! Yay!!!

Image
Enjoying the views in Central Park.

Image
Yup! We are in New York City!!!

Image
First stop... Victorian Gardens for some credit whoring!

Image
Victoria Gardens is set up in Central Park at Wollman Ice Skating Rink during the summer!

Image
And yes! There is a credit here!

Image
Elissa looks pleased with her credit whoring, KidTums... Yeah... Whatever!

Image
It's a "Fiesta Express" model coaster... Which means OMFG 90MPH SUPER SPEED LAUNCH INTO 10 INTENSE INVERSIONS!!! Ok, maybe not.

Image
Caesar, it's a kiddie ride...

Image
FIRST CREDIT IN NEW YORK CITY!!!

Image
Some pricing information for Victorian Gardens.

Image
It's awesome they are able to set up this cute little park INSIDE the ice rink!

Image
TPR made a stop at FAO Schwartz to make more Muppets!

Image
The Muppet Whatnot Workshop allows you to custom design your own REAL Muppet!

Image
There are so many different combinations! Awesome!

Image
Here are the TPR Muppets!

Image
I made a biker - artist - horned - monster!

Image
Next up, we got a taste (literraly) of New York City culture by way if local pizza joints with Scott's Pizza Tours!

Image
Pizza expert, Scott tells us all about the history of NYC pizza!

Image
Our first stop ... The world famous Lombardi's - New York City's first ever "pizzeria!"

Image
Oooh! A behind the scenes look at Lombardi's coal burning oven!

Image
Scott says "Those coals are HOT!!!"

Image
Now the most important part of the tour... EATING PIZZA!

Image
TPR is Rockin' the fold at Lombardi's!

Image
"I only drink my beer like a manly man!"

Image
An AWESOME traditional margherita pizza can be had at Lombardi's.

Image
TPR + Food = AWESOME!!!

Image
"I could easily eat the rest of this by myself!"

Image
Our next stop was Arturo's, another coal burning oven, but the pizza is made very differently than Lombardi's.

Image
This one uses a more common "low moisture" mozzerella cheese instead of the fresh buffalo mozzarella that Lombardi's uses.

Image
Scott tells us it doesn't matter how you eat your pizza, as long as you eat it!

Image
My personal preference was Lombardi's over Arturo's, but many in the group felt opposite. It didn't matter...we had PIZZA!!! And they both ROCKED!

Image
Scott **IS** Mr. Pizza! Take his tour. You won't be disappointed!

Image
BOOB CREDIT!

Image
Our final stop of the pizza tour was "Famous Ben's" in SoHo.

Image
Famous Ben's has the type of oven you're probably more used to seeing in your local pizza place.

Image
They had some interesting looking pizzas here!

Image
Scott got us this awesome Sicilian style, "Palermo Pizza." It kicked all sorts of A$$!

Image
And TPR totally took over Famous Ben's!

Image
These are REAL reviews written by professional reviewers who have trained for years. Please don't try this at home.

Image
If Jason Lee loves this place...so do we!

Image
TPR had an awesome AWESOME time exploring NYC by way of pizza with Scott's Pizza Tours! http://www.scottspizzatours.com

Image
And now it's time for dessert! Fresh, and I mean REALLY FRESH JUST FILLED TEN SECONDS AGO awesome canolis from Rocco's!

Image
Good night New York City! See you again tomorrow!

More photos coming soon! Now...do your part and POST YOUR COMMENTS!!!
