The #NEW Madison Square Garden All Access Tour Is Incredible!! #MSGAllAccess @TheGarden #NYC

Madison Square Garden All Access Madison Square Garden Reopens All Access Tour Following The Completion of the Arena’s Historic Transformation! #MSGAllAccess

When I was given the opportunity by my fellow blogger friend Diane Sullivan from 3decades3kids to attend The Madison Square Garden All Access Tour I hit the roof!! Being a big sporting fan from the NYC, and attending various events at Madison Square Garden it was exciting to have the opportunity to experience it on a more personal level. I attended with my two nieces which are big Carmelo Anthony fans. Guest Post written by Karen Angustia.

The tour itself lasted about an hour and took you around the theater, the Knicks and Rangers locker rooms and into a Sky box which has an amazing view, if only I had the cash for one of those. The tour was well organised and very informative. I must say the staff is amazing. Many of them speak various languages to accommodate tourists who do not know the English language. For me the best part was being able to see for myself how luxurious the locker rooms were. (not at all what I imagined). These athletes get five star treatment with the amenities that MSG provides them.

The empty arena felt bigger as we stepped on the Chase Bridge. Did you know that the big screen at MSG weighs over 49,000 lb.

#MyRocketShake Is Totally Kid Approved And Even Sneaks In Yummy Fruits! Red, White, and Blueberry- All American Shake! @JohnnyRockets

My Rocket Shake 
Red, White, and Blueberry- All American Shake
Is Totally Kid Approved and 
Even Sneaks In Yummy Fruits!
Recently I had the pleasure of dining with Johnny Rockets! During the luncheon we feasted on yummy-rific foods, watched a ketchup artist create works of art before our very eyes and for dessert we were able to create our own shake. What an awesome lunch! Johnny Rockets has been pretty much a staple in our family between the delicious burger choices, fries, shakes and more! 
It’s a great place to just gather with the family and friends- to eat, chat and laugh! 
Our family loves to spend kitchen time together and creating new dishes is pretty much a family affair. Of course we created a bunch of shakes during the past years, but for this contest we wanted to come up with something that our family loved and that also represented what Johnny Rockets means to us. We thought and thought. We thought about how we have visited Johnny Rockets and the one word that kept coming up over and over was America. It’s how we came up with the name of our shake:
“Red, White  and Blueberry-All American Shake”
Now that we had the name, we needed to make the shake to see if it lived up! It had to be good, no-it had to be great. As a mom, I was happy to sneak in those strawberries and blueberries. 
It’s a simple shake to make and I am happy to report a very yummy creation. I cannot believe we never came up with it before this, but I am sure glad we thought of it now. It’s a real keeper!
 We are so very proud of it. It’s especially awesome that September is National Shake Month!
 The kids love it and the parents love it, too. You can follow this simple recipe and enjoy it with your family and friends! Kid Approved! Parents Approved! Friends Approved! PS: Did I mention we were singing and dancing when the shakes were ready? If you have ever been to Johnny Rockets, you will know exactly what I mean!
