Hey there! No!!
In a restaurant?
Not even a gluten-free restaurant, Scott!
The YMCA on 63rd and CPW?
Not a museum, Myra. But you're getting warm, Scott!
New York Society for Ethical Culture on 64th and CPW?
You're about as warm, Scott.
Saint John the Divine?
Not a prayer, Gary.
Is it the Sony/Loews/AMC movie theater on 68th and Broadway?
No, Debbie...but you're warmer!
Were you in the soon to be shuttered New York State Theater at Lincoln Center?
You're a little cooler, Dolph.
How about the Metro theater at 99th and Broadway?
Debbie, you've gotten cooler too.
The lobby of the Beacon Theatre?
Very very warm, Dolph!
The lounge area of the Beacon Theatre?
Scott, that's about as very very warm!
Lobby of the Hotel Beacon New York?
Were you on the balcony level of the Beacon Theatre?
Yes, I was, Myra. Well done!Once again, specificity counts (though I would've been satisfied with a simple "Beacon Theatre")...and Dolph gets burned--ouch!!What do y'all think of these awkward situations? Can you live with them as being just part of the game? Or should winners get 2 points for a bull's eye but 1 for being very very close? Other suggestions??I was at the Beacon for a concert that included numerous musicians including Feist. I think it might've been a fundraiser....
One might argue that if you were outside the auditorium at the Beacon Theatre, even on the balcony level, you were in the lobby.Not that I'm argumentative. But c'mon, I haven't even sniffed a point since the Pleistocene epoch.From Dictionary.com:lobby: an entrance hall, corridor, or vestibule, as in a public building, often serving as an anteroom; foyer.
Maybe it's just me, but I would've given it to Dolph.
Dolph did get the building first, and you could argue how much area "lobby" covers.David, where exactly in the building were you? Is the statue just an ornament or is it a drinking fountain or something?I found these other pictures of the Beacon online: http://s18.photobucket.com/albums/b110/GuanoReturns/Manhattan%20Movie%20Theaters/Beacon%20Theater/It includes a picture of one of the statues and the caption says it is on orchestra level.
Well, I went back into my files for the Bookeaters Benefit at the Beacon and saw that I had loge tickets (front row!), which means I was sitting in the first balcony, in an architectural sense. Above the Loge, there are also Lower Balcony and Upper Balcony sections. Food for thought.
Coyly, DMF avoids the most pertinent issue. Was the picture taken inside or outside the auditorium at the Beacon Theatre? Were you in your front row seats snapping pics or did you snap it in the loge foyer which would be a lobby?
After the concert, I was inside the auditorium, all the way over on loge right, taking the picture of the statue, which is mounted on the auditorium wall.I also took a picture of a water fountain in the foyer of the loge section--but the picture was so horrible I didn't run it. And I didn't even take a picture in the ground floor lobby....
