Best Weekend Ever

Over the weekend, I served as co-chair for a fundraiser that took place in Lower Manhattan at Cipriani Wall Street.

It took months to plan with tastings and meetings about floral design, stage design, etc.

By the end of the night all I wanted was a pair of flat shoes and a slice of white pizza from Joe’s. (Luckily, I got both.)

I thought the remainder of the weekend would be low key, but a friend called with an extra show ticket that I couldn’t pass on. We saw Lupita Nyongo star in the new Broadway show Eclipsed.

By Sunday, I wanted family time outside of the norm and had received an email about a free concert at Town Hall by “The Orchestra Now “.  So, we went!

This was a busy, culture filled weekend. I appreciate my city and all it has to offer. Every now and then I have to take advantage.

Let Beauty Awake

This weekend, a friend invited me to her performance “Let Beauty Awake” at the National Opera Center.  I attended with my family (yes, my kindergartener too).  Afterwards, we took advantage of the spring weather and explored the area. We walked Highline Park and caught a glimpse of the new Whitney Museum building scheduled to open in May–stay tuned for my post on the “New Whitney” next week.
