NY cuisine: Eating hotdogs on the steps of the Met

Met Museum, NYI’ve been dragging my kids to museums ever since they were little. Actually, when they were really little it was easiest, since back then they really couldn’t complain. : )

When I’m back in NY, I always love to go to the museums, and since we are members at the Met (the Metropolitan Museum of Art), we spend a significant amount of time here.

The good thing about Membership is that you can duck in for just a short time on each visit – ideal with kids, and something we do whenever we’re back.

However, I’m not disinclined to resort to bribery in the quest for culture. Or shall we call it “providing incentives”?

In fact, the Met has been synonymous ( at least in my kids’ minds) with the equation:

  • Visit to see exhibitions = Hot dog and a lemonade on the steps afterwards (followed by a stop in the playground).

Now that they are older, the playground no longer holds the lure it used to, but there is no lack of enthusiasm for the hot dogs.

Eating hot dogs on the steps of the Met following a Met visit has become something we do on every visit, and as you’ll see the next time you’re there, we’re hardly alone on this.

So enjoy your day of culture – and hot dogs – next time you’re visiting New York’s Met Museum.
