Geeks Who Live – July Events


Queens Botanical Garden, Visitor Center and Administration Building, Flushing, New York, BKSK Architects

Typically I write about many fun things (and will, of course, never rob you of dope events), but will be throwing in some professional workshops or info sessions along the way. There’s a balance in all we do and the fun things are fab, but some people prefer more balance and to enjoy the social yet professional networking available. These valuable connections could be catalysts for milestones in our careers and lives.

Wellness, meditation, relaxation are necessary all year around. Check out Montauk Salt Cave programs with locations in Long Island and Manhattan.

Famous Food Festival “Taste the World” Presented by King O’Rourke looks groovy.

Arts In The Plaza is Long Beach’s Most Awesomest Weekly Arts Festival! #ThankYou!

Great South Bay Music Festival 2019: what is better than everything food, drinks, and music to celebrate summer?

Check out the Alex Ferrone Gallery for their summer exhibit! Always looks like an extraordinary exhibit, looking forward to getting out there sometime this summer.

Museums are the best place on the planet. I find so much peace and inspiration as soon as I walk into one. Long Island is home to so many treasures! Long Island Museum, my favorite Nassau County Museum of Art , Vanderbilt Museum, Cradle of Aviation, Heckscher Museum of Art, Long Island Maritime Museum, Hofstra University Museum of Art, Montauk Lighthouse Historical Museum, Parish Art Museum (PARTY SATURDAY JULY 13!), and the Whaling Museum & Education Center.

In Queens you have: Queens Museum, The Noguchi Museum, NYSCI, Museum of the Moving Image, and MoMA PS1 to name a few. Brooklyn has  wonderful museums such as the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, Brooklyn Historical Society, and New York Transit Museum (oh, the good ole days, I’m sure.).

Daybreaker NYC looks like fun! Why haven’t I been yet, most definitely do not know, but you should get tickets for their boat ride and let me know what I’m missing.

Brooklyn’s Industry City is definitely for industries. There’s everything you could imagine within a couple of blocks: retail, businesses, fashion, food food food food food, many alcohols: beer, wine, sake, spirits, specialties, more coming, and art. Tons of wellness and art programs (my favorite).

Big aLICe Barrel Room in Sunset Park is always releasing a new beer or hosting events, such as #GeeksWhoDrink #TriviaTuesdays, #BroadlyEntertaining #DrunkJenga, and #DragQueenBingo.

Soho Rep. is pretty amazing when it comes to Performance Arts. We all think we know and have seen it all before, but they’re a little more about the full sensory experience and less about what can be seen.

Even more things NYC from the NYC website: outdoor movies, pool parties, free events, kids events, book clubs, markets, job fairs, premieres, and endless tastings for food, wine, beer, rye, gin, sake, … sounds so familiar, doesn’t i?

Apres Group in NYC is an organization set out to help women get back to the workforce. Everybody has a journey, this may be part of it. Culinary Agents is focused on everything culinary and hospitality.

Google wants to know if you knew Georgia O’Keeffe’s first solo museum exhibition was held at the Brooklyn Museum in 1927? #AskingForAFriend #Librarian4LYFE

Greenpoint Figure Drawing is an option if you enjoy #DrinkAndDraw.

In perpetual celebration to always be so fabulously you, how about a little LGBTQ+ Paint Party at Boxers?
