Weekend Rewind 6/25-6/27/11

2011 June 28

This past weekend was a really great NYC weekend, filled with friends, food, sun, and plenty of New York sights. The weekend in pictures, below.

We kicked off the weekend (after vintage browsing and S’mac in the East Village) with rooftop margaritas

On Friday night, New York (finally) became the sixth state to legalize same-sex marriage. Coincidentally, it was also Pride weekend in NYC. We celebrated by checking out the Lesbian Herstory Archives in Park Slope–lots of fascinating stuff to browse through!

Following that adventure, we walked through Prospect Park to the Brooklyn Museum, where we saw some feminist art and a cool exhibit on Vishnu and Hinduism.

Sunday was another glorious day–started out at a wedding shower in Prospect Park, then followed up with a trip on the Staten Island Ferry

Unbeknownst to me, apparently the SI Ferry is one of the coolest things to do in NYC. It’s free, runs every half hour, and has amazing views. Highly recommended!

I got a little artsy with my nails, and I love how they turned out!

An adorable pub we found right off the ferry on Staten Island, where the beer was cheap, the bartender was friendly, and the music was 90s.

Returning to Manhattan, where we found Stone Street, a little-known Financial District enclave, a tiny street full of restaurants and open air tables.

 

How was your weekend? Did you discover anything new about your city or town?
