Forget about that pastrami on rye at Saul’s Deli in Berkeley. It’s great, but I’ll be getting my New York fix at Oakland’s Oracle Arena, December 16–17. That’s when the Rockettes come to town.
The Rockettes! Seeing those incredibly precise dancers—and their perfectly timed, gloriously high kicks—remains among my favorite childhood memories. My mom first took me when I was six years old. I wore a black velvet dress and patent leather shoes, and held on tight to her hand to make sure she didn’t lose me in the crowds snaking their way into Radio City Music Hall. We sat near the front, and I watched, wide-eyed, to see if any of the dancers would make a mistake. Of course, they never did. I couldn’t believe anything could be so perfect.
Now, the Rockettes are coming here, and I can’t wait to see them again. This time, I’ll be able to share the experience with my son.
