Kimberlie Dykeman Takes a Bite out of NYC

From the minute she landed in New York, Kimberlie Dykeman took in fabulous new experiences every chance she could!  It began with a trip to the General Motors Building to join the crowds at a taping of CBS’s The Early Show…  Dykeman not only shook hands of the fabulously friendly anchors, she also garnered some serious camera-time for the cover of her book, Pure Soapbox, and  handed off a copy to the producer.  Just in case they needed a great guest to motivate their viewers in the New Year!

Dykeman stayed at the swanky SoHo Grande Hotel, dined at Lure and  Megu and took in the amazing contemporary West-Side Story-esque musical, In the Heights, at the Richard Rogers Theater.    A junket into Greenwich Village was distracted by the annual SantaCon celebration, where Dykeman asked not ONE but TWO Santas for a few Christmas gifts!   IMG_0283  IMG_0278
