PIX OR IT DIDNT HAPPEN.

Accordions Around the World Finale @ Bryant Park (organized by Arianna - brava!)

SUMMER IN THE CITY HAS BEEN SO GOOD TO ME. It feels like I’ve had the chance to get out of town for the day/night every single weekend this summer.

Rose, Zach, Kaitlin, Dave, and I drove to Peekamoose Blue Hole in the Catskills. Though quite cold, the water was pellucid and almost teal. It was perfect for one (or five) jumps off the rocks and a hike upstream. We stopped in Woodstock for dinner on our way back into the city. Who needs the Hamptons!?

Benno had a bajillion people ride the Staten Island Ferry for his birthday party on Saturday night. Fosters, cake, and Zach almost Van Goghed Pete when he jumped over the giant (please don’t sue).

Renan and I attended a dinner party on Friday night at the magical Sunview Luncheonette off McGolrick Park. Brazilian DJ Tutu Moraes served plates of moqueca, a fishy stew, with lots of wine and Caetano Veloso.

I love love love this space and would love love love to have Friendsgiving there (note to self).

Cal (a primatologist!) has 24/7 access to the Museum of Natural History. She took us on a late-night tour and it was the shiiiiiit. We got to go behind the scenes and see parts of the massive catalogue of ever species ever and lounge on our backs beneath Great Blue. It was totally worth 3 hours of sleep.

Went to Tilden on Sunday and it was the best beach day of the season: big waves, warm water. We knocked around in the surf until we all turned into kelp.

$100 to anyone who can explain this massive wth painting (spotted @ Bushwick pig roast)

A painless trek to Corona for tamales @ Nixtamal

I’m Heather’s date to a wedding in DUMBO tonight (she’s officiating). I’m wearing a vintage dress that used to belong to Kelly, my all-time-favorite-boss - she gave it to me before I left San Francisco. Kelly used to rock it in the 90’s with Docs.  If only I could be so cool.
