A weekend to cross your fingers for blue skies…
This week has been full of strange thunderstorms in New York and I’d really rather not spend this weekend ducking puddles and downpours, so please keep your fingers crossed that the 30% chance I see hovering over the next two days really is just meteorologist pessimism – I will be keeping my parapluie at the ready, however.
This weekend will include catching up with a few folks I’ve not seen in much too long, taking part in this year’s last Summer Streets on Saturday, and a picnic on Governors Island for the Jazz-Age Lawn Party.
Aspirational goals include: dropping in to see the New Orleans meets New York interior of newly-opened East Village restaurant Exchange Alley – the Maxfield Parrish prints and lanterns salvaged from 17th century hearses are enough to pique my interest indeed – attending a bit of polo on Long Island, and taking care of some very overdue correspondence.
Of note/a mini Reading List:
- Jane Pratt’s Perpetual Adolescence: Why She’s Still Talking Teen Three Decades After Sassy: “…Sassy inspired a cult: To this day, many women between the ages of 30 and 50 (and a lot of gay men, too) will tell you that Sassy was the first magazine that ever felt like it was actually telling the truth.” Word infinity.
- Katharine Hepburn skateboarding!
- Take a gorgeous trip to Turkey in just under 4 minutes.
Have a lovely weekend!
What will you be getting up to?
