The sticky, bright, long days of summer have made themselves at home again once more. We're planning on celebrating it to it's fullest this weekend with a trip to the pool and a stop at OddFellows Ice Cream's new out post in the east village - the burnt marshmallow shake sounds like perfection.
If you are swept up in World Cup madness I highly recommend taking the family to watch a match outdoors in a park. It's the best way to enjoy some sports while the kids can also run around. Governors Island, Bryant Park and the Paley Center are all broadcasting it.
I've been told on more than one occasion that I cannot start collecting any more kitchen implements but these may need to be an exception.
My son's first birthday is next week and I've still got a few last minute gifts to pick up and this monkey is top of my list.
Once the kid has gone to bed I plan on trying my hand at a few of these summer cocktails.
