Day Tripping

After the weeks of storms, the weather has finally improved around here. It's sunny and in the 70s. That means the return of weekend adventures. Steve and I have been shooting each other e-mails during the day with a link to a mountain or a museum. Nothing else in the e-mail. Just a link.

Steve must be getting excited about tromping through the woods, because a few days ago, he sent me a link to High Point State Park. I'm going to join this CSA. I'm running my first 5K in twenty years on Sunday. We're taking the kids to the Tim Burton exhibit at MOMA on Friday night. I just renewed our subscription to Time Out New York, so we can keep track of the street fairs and shows. The Orchid Show is coming (our pictures from last year). 

I'm so ready for this.

  1. I understand the desire to go to the woods, but want to wait until the mud season is over. Especially given the heavy rain and snow lately I’m guessing it will be at least a few mostly dry weeks at least.
    Are these NYC street fairs you’re looking at? I have to admit to quickly growing sour on them as, quite literally, if you’d seen one, you’d seen them all, as nearly all the stands, food, etc. are the same in each, and even w/in each every few blocks. Very disappointing, and a way that the US has gotten much worse. (My disappointment was even greater when I went to the Alabama State Fair in the fall of ’08 and saw that it, too, was now the same mobile corporate food stands you’d find anywhere, with no local flavor or fare, and almost no exhibitions- even those mostly professional now. Terrible.)

  2. You know what I am doing Saturday, that lovely 70 degree day? I am frickin’ spending it in Providence in an auditorium watching a hundred dance performances, including 3 of my daughter’s. For ELEVEN HOURS. We have to be there at 9, and awards end at 8.
    Kill. Me. Now.

  3. Young men with Greenpeace shirts and clipboards to pedestrians younger still: Are you having a good day? How’d you like to make it an AWESOME one?
    Everything goes Ned Flanders, given sufficient time.

  4. Yes, yes, I NEED an iPhone. I like your thinking.
    No, I would take the 11 hours of dance over another broken ankle. Unless I could break the left one this time. *thinks*
    My life will be further complicated by the parking issue. The NCAA early rounds and a convention are apparently going on at the same time in roughly the same area. There are reports that parking lots are charging $30-40 for “event parking.”

  5. Matt – Street fairs are great, because they shut down main streets like Broadway and we can saunter down the middle of the block without fear of getting nailed by a taxi. No, they aren’t terribly original, but I just love sauntering through the city.
    And Wendy. Ugh. There has to be some loop hole somewhere.
