Attending Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Baily's Circus

Recently, I was invited to see Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Baily's Built To Amaze, the 143rd edition of the Greatest Show On Earth.  The venue was the brand new Barclays Center located in Brooklyn, New York.  I had not yet seen this multi-purpose indoor arena and this was a great opportunity to familiarize myself with this immaculate and nicely cared for place designed by the architect firm Ellerbe Becket.  The staff at Barclays was attentive and very nice.  I was joined by my daughter Alexis, and her children, Jude and Truman, and also Kevin Sharkey and a few other friends.  The circus was so exciting and we were all mesmerized by the gorgeous and daring performances.  We all  had a great time!
