summertime has arrived:

Checked out Brooklyn Bridge Park last week. Currently they are expanding the park from a mere 12 acres to 76 acres of lawn space. During my Thursday night visit I had a chance to check out the waterfalls, have delicious fresh fish tacos, and was treated to a surprise display of fireworks.

Attended the Siren Festival in Coney Island the other weekend. Hipsters, port-o-potties sans toilet paper, $5 beers, a gorgeous sunny day, and great music = awesome times.

Last friday attended a showing of Powaqatsi accompanied by live music from the Philip Glass Ensemble, at the Prospect Park Bandshell. If you're not familiar with the film...definitely check it out.

This was followed by a Sunday at Long Beach. Sun was shining and the waves were amazing. I woke up the next morning with a wicked sunburn but it was totally worth it, cause mamas got a tan now.

And last but not least...worked a gig at Tavern on the Green in central park on Saturday, after which I proceeded directly to the Beer Garden in Astoria to join my neighbor for mucho cervesa. Where, I might add, I met a make-up artist as well as a product designer for Coach, both of whom I plan to do some serious testing with.

Okay I lied, that wasn't the last thing...

Myself and Erika attended the fort greene flea market on Sunday and I scored a fantastic teal green jumper.
