All relationships come with promise. Mine to you is to provide the smallest insight to some of the coolest things I wish we were doing. (Not necessarily together, altho I like to think I’m good company.)
June rolled up on us and so confused because it feels like April with this silly humid rain. In the great words of Regina George: BOO WHORE.
Excited for the happy, sunny, end of baby summer events. June is about welcoming summer, complaining it’s too grossly hot, outdoor everything from movies, concerts, beer fests, and dining, and celebration of LGBTQ+ pride! The world is an ugly place full of oppression, but WHY?! Do you really want someone telling you what you can or cannot do? I do not! Be You. Show up and be YOU! That means whatever you want it to be. Let’s celebrate!
Brooklyn Museum is also celebrating pride all month with exhibits and events like Papi Juice Presents Brooklyn Pride! on Saturday, June 8.
Get your children involved! Have the conversations! LGBTQ+ Teen Night: Transforming Tomorrow Friday, June 7!
Did you know the New York International Children’s Film Festival (NYICFF) offers summer film camps? Does your kid organically gravitate toward drama? Expression? Maybe they’re introverted and could use a creative outlet like everything it takes to make films? Higher education is a mess and military is no longer the one and only alternative. There are trade professions, film is one of them!
One of my new favorite places in Long Island is Bubble Boutique & Learning Center. On a little weekend escape, mommy and I dropped in to discover more than the gorgeous bags in the window, but that they host many arts workshops for kids and adults.
Mommy and I also hit up Macari Vineyards and it was sublime. We sat in the sunshine and drank a bottle of rosé accompanied by cheeze, craackers, and delicioso meat-o. Service was excellent and we felt like royalty (we’re from Queens, so I guess we are?).
This very same weekend we discovered the beauty in Great South Bay Brewery and Jamesport Farm Brewery. Service was excellent at both places and beer is stellar. Grab some food, get the picnic basket & blankie, please go enjoy the finest things in life with your friends and family!
NYC Parks + Jazz = Need I say more here? NYC PARKS PRESENTS ARTS, CULTURE & FUN Jazz Concert: Ed Cherry Trio! (I simply went ahead and said what you all were thinking…)
I don’t see any June dates for two of my favorite local NYC musicians Emily Mure and Matt Sucich yet. They are fierce on stage, taking folk and acoustic to new levels with a whole lot of heart and soul. Keep checking in and listening!
Beer is a universal language. Let’s chat! Big aLICe Brewing is so busy with their expansion, but nothing has stopped them from getting you their Biere de Fierte! Release Party: Thursday, June 6 – Queens and Brooklyn will be partying harder than you. (That might be a challenge.) They also have their SIXTH ANNIVERSARY PARTY on Sunday, June 16! Happy Father’s Day (…and You’re Welcome!)
Dear Photographers, your June event is quite possibly a deadline. Don’t delay, hesitate, think too long about it. Just pick a pic and go with it. You won’t regret it. PDN’s Curator Photo Contest 2019.
MORE! MORE! MORE!
