What to do...what to do!


Wow! It was a wee bit blustery out there this morning, although we managed to swing school drop off without being blown away. In any case, the holiday weekend has certainly snuck up on us over here. The city is pretty quiet, but that's just fine by me! Maybe we'll swing by the New York Botanical Garden to check out the Frida Kahlo installation which is supposed to be pretty fab. If any of you brave Coney Island or the Seaport, take note that Smorgasburg is opening this weekend in both locations. Those of you out in Queens can look forward to their expansion into Long Island City this July. Whatever you do, have a great time! See you back here next Tuesday. :)
