Okay, I'm not gonna lie. When I found out this morning that Cynthia Nixon (aka Miranda Hobbes from Sex and the City) was going to be in Rochester, I wanted to go because I LOVE SatC. Big fan girl, have seen every episode at least 10x.
But when I decided to go down to the cafe she was speaking at, it wasn't because she's Miranda. It was because, I can't vote for her JUST because she's Miranda. I want to know more about her campaign, so went. Getting to meet her was an added bonus.
She spoke at 1872 Cafe on Main Street, the spot where Susan B. Anthony cast her illegal vote all those years ago. The cafe itself was pretty cool, and had great coffee. (I got an Eleanor Roosevelt!) When Cynthia came out, she was very kind to everyone, shaking hands and taking the time to speak with us. She spoke for about 20 minutes, mostly about women's rights. Which is great, though I would have loved to hear more about other aspects of her campaign - education, for example. But all in all, glad I went! I took a FB live video, below, sorry my connection was bad and it kept cutting out! But you get the gist. :)
