Weekend Recap: May 27-30 2011
Mother Nature was pretty good to us this Memorial Day weekend, and it’s officially summertime in New York City. There’s still a rowdy family cookout taking place outside my building late Monday night as I write this, so I think it’s safe to say everyone’s taking advantage.
We had a couple of friends from Boston staying with us this weekend so we did our best to show them a good time, bringing them to all our favorite spots and even a couple of new spots. Sunday afternoon was spent at a friend’s birthday barbecue in the West Village, complete with watermelon margaritas and rooftop views, and today I saw our friends off before heading into Midtown to help Joe a little bit with setting up the theater for the show next weekend.
How did you spend your long weekend?
My neighborhood was temporarily transformed to a 1960’s street while they filmed a chase scene for Men in Black 3. Classic cars and old posters lined the streets and we watched some filming from a bar nearby late Friday night.
Joe chills out on the patio at The Diamond in Greenpoint
Some tasty bourbon at Dram in South Williamsburg (one of those fancy places where they give you one giant ball of ice instead of cubes!)
It wouldn’t be a trip to Pies n Thighs without pie for dessert–this one is peanut butter chocolate crunch.
