Categories Out and about Our day at The Nate Berkus Show Part I Post author By Relevé Design Post date December 10, 2011 6 Comments on Our day at The Nate Berkus Show Part I The day of the taping is finally here! After weeks of preparation and only days of rehearsing, Bao and I embark on a day that we can only hope will go smoothly.We’re accompanied by two friends, and fortunately one – Sara – offered to drive into Manhattan. We leave promptly at 7:30 AM after double and triple-checking that we have everything we need. God forbid we make Bao late for his day.We leave Brooklyn extra early to avoid traffic. The studios are only six miles away, but you can never tell what traffic will look like until you’re on the road. The Brooklyn Bridge has also been under a lot of construction so fingers crossed lanes wouldn’t be closed. It just so happens that the Rockefeller tree lighting is the same day and President Obama will be in NYC attending a few fundraisers. Auspicious?It’s a blustery fall morning and particularly brisk on the West Side of Manhattan. We arrive at Bao’s room to find his name misspelled on the door, but with a full name like Bao’s it’s not uncommon. The staff couldn’t be more pleasant and cheerful. If anyone could calm nerves, it’s the staff of The Nate Berkus Show.We get comfy in our private waiting room as producers and other guests walk back and forth outside. Bao gets a chance to rehearse with Jordan, one of the producers, before the actual rehearsal downstairs.He seems calm. Stay tuned for Part II that includes photos from hair and make-up!
