Sopranos Tour…

Sopranos Tour…
http://www.zerve.com/
used NYCO code to get 2 for 1 ticket
Corrie and I are Sopranos fanatics… In fact in preparation for the Sopranos tour, before our holiday began we had watched the all of the episodes on DVD from episode 1 of season 1 to the very last episode…
The tour bus picked us up a block or 2 from the HBO store and our tour guide was the very charismatic Marc Baron – an actor who has worked on 13 episodes of the show…
The first part of the tour found us retracing Tony Soprano’s journey from the opening titles of the show, heading out of Manhattan to Jersey, passing all the sights from that famous opening sequence…
Along the way, Marc kept us entertained with fascinating Sopranos trivia and quizzes… Marc would point out filming locations throughout the journey, explaining how the shots were filmed before replaying the scenes on the DVD player aboard the bus…
We stopped at various locations including the diner where Tony Soprano’s nephew, Chris Moltisanti got shot, the diner where they filmed the final scene from the final episode and our last stop, the famous strip bar Bada Bing (an actual strip club called Satin Dolls)… At all these stops, Marc explained to us how and where the shots were taken, and at Satin Dolls, we got 25 mins to enjoy a drink and watch the girls dance (at this point I must say, apparently in New Jersey strip club laws are extremely strict and allow the owner to only have either an alcohol licence or a strip licence, so the scenes filmed in Bada Bing are a mistake… In this case, Satin Dolls chose to have an alcohol licence)…
After a good 3 hours of touring the Bus took us back to the HBO store in Manhattan, which had remained open late just for us…
All in all the tour was brilliant… Not only did we get to see the locations used in the filming of the Sopranos, but we also learned lots of trivia about the cast, crew and filming of the show and got a tour of New Jersey…
If you’re a fan of the Sopranos, you’ll love this…
