Weekend Rewind June 10-12, 2011
I’ve been a deadbeat blogger. I have no excuse other than I was out enjoying my weekend, and then recovering from it. Fair enough? Let’s move on.
I took the day off on Friday and went to the Frick Collection with Joe. It was beautiful and inspiring, and a nice way to spend a day I would have otherwise been inside an office. Friday night, we took the night off from the play and went to a free Andrew Bird concert at Prospect Park, where I proceeded to guilt a man into buying us beer for cutting us in line. There was never a truer saying than “the squeaky wheel gets the grease.” I was so happy to get to see Andrew in concert–his music is so innovative and beautiful. Unfortunately, we didn’t stay too long because of the disproportionate number of available bathrooms and food to the massive crowds, so we escaped to Henry Public for burgers and turkey leg sandwiches. Mmmm.
Saturday was a busy day–we had friends visiting from Boston to see the play, so we had lunch with them and hung out before attending the last night-time performance of the show.
A beautiful cake one of the actors made (Big Rodent is the name of Joe’s production company)
Early Sunday morning we journeyed to the Upper East Side to go see the Alexander McQueen exhibit, Savage Beauty, at the Met. I’ve been anxious to see it since it opened, and I was not disappointed. I am planning a separate post, but here’s a teaser–it’s superb. Go see it if you’re in New York this summer.
I wanted to wear something semi-fun to go see a fashion exhibit, so I experimented with tying two scarves together. I was pleased with the results!
Finally, it was time for the last performance of the play, after which we cleaned up the set, packed up the costumes and props, and headed to Koreatown for a couple of hours of karaoke to celebrate a great run.
How was your weekend?
