Pee-wee was also partnering with social networking phenoms Foursquare to reveal specific locations throughout NYC which followers could use to unlock special badges that got them gifts when the tour concluded in the afternoon at Broadway's Stephen Sondheim Theater. That's where Pee-wee will bring his famed group of friends including Miss Yvonne, Mailman Mike, Cowboy Curtis and Jambi the Genie from Oct. 26 to Jan. 2. Get Tickets Here
Take a look below at just how he did it on Twitter and come back to PopEater next week to get exclusive video and photos from his big day in New York.
The morning kicked off with Pee-wee (aka the actor Paul Reubens) meeting fans on the Brooklyn Bridge
From there his caravan grew as they hit City Hall, Chinatown and Little Italy. PopEater was in touch with team Pee-wee and were waiting for him for his first food break as he strolled into Katz's Deli on the Lower East Side. Of course, bus loads of tourists were already dining inside and were surprised by the mob that crushed into the delicatessen. PopEater was there to show Pee-wee what the locals know about Katz's. Tip your counterman $1 and you'll get some extra lean slices to sample. Yes, we splurged for Herman.
Pee-wee's journey took him to the basketball courts of the West Village for a game of H-O-R-S-E.
After that, Herman headed up town. Pee-wee made some new friends on the subway on his journey to Harlem:
Once he got there, he got a taste of Sylvia's soul food wonders:
Then it was on to a firehouse in Spanish Harlem and down to Times Square to the famed TKTS booth. We'll be following Pee-wee Herman on Twitter and also keeping tabs on our friend during his ten weeks in our backyard.
