Weekend Update…

In case you are able to break away from MSNBC and remove the impending war with North Korea from your stream of consciousness, here are some weekend suggestions:

Find a bar and watch Game 6 Of the ALCS.

The NY Yankees lead the series 3-2.

They are back in Houston and need our support.

I was at the Stadium for Game 4 and it was magical.

You don’t have to be a sports fan to participate and if you are single, this is way better than Tinder.

See the movie, Marshall.

It was unexpected and I left the theater teary-eyed, wondering where all the great American leaders had gone.

The film focuses on Marshall’s time as a lawyer for the NAACP, trying one of the first cases of his stellar career which led to his appointment as  the first African-American Supreme Court Justice.

We need a Thurgood Marshall right now!

Broadway is touting, The Bands Visit as the next Hamilton and Dear Evan Hansen.

While the musical is well intentioned it is slow and awkward like a Trump press conference.

The Band’s Visit focuses on a mix-up at the Egypt/Israeli border.

The Egyptian Police Band is sent to a remote village in the middle of the Israeli desert. The unlikely travelers are taken in by the locals and their lives become intertwined.

If you want an inexpensive, delish meal and you are craving Asian food try Jing Fong uptown or downtown and Kung Fu Little Steamed Buns Ramen on 8th Avenue and 49th Street.

Head to the Hamptons for a day at the beach. This is the absolute best time of year to visit.

If culture is your thing, check out Storm King in New Windsor, NY. I posted all about it on Monday.

Hurry and visit the dynamic sculpture exhibit on the Kantor Roof Garden at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

MET Rooftop

The view is incredible.

The roof closes the end of October. It is open Saturday from 11am-8:15pm and Sunday 11am-4:30pm.

Have a cocktail and enjoy the spectacle.

If shopping is in the cards, Zara is replicating the best of all the designers. Pricing is reasonable and the styles are off the charts.

Have a foot massage in SoHo. No, they are not all a front for rub and tugs.

Conservatory in Central Park

Explore the Conservatory Garden in Central Park at 5th Avenue between 104th and 106th Street. They are magnificent formal gardens and a well kept secret.

Just above the Gardens, Maoz, the falafel and grill restaurant, opened a pop up by the lake.

Maoz also serves the best french and sweet potato fries, hands down.

Eat, read, drink in the views. A great way to spend a weekend day.

Hudson River Bike Path

Take a bike ride on the Hudson River bike path which’s runs from the George Washington Bridge to the Staten Island Ferry.

I am taking my own advise and heading to the Hamptons with the dogs to run on the beach.

Enjoy the weekend and GO YANKEES!!
