Happy Wednesday everybody! I'm moving to new digs on Friday. That's interesting to exactly nobody besides myself, but I did want to get you my weekend picks early. Summer Streets is back on Saturday which means you can play, run, walk + bike on almost seven miles of city streets. If that's not your thing, mix up some potions + enjoy high tea in the gardens of Gallow Green in Chelsea. No Longer Bored Family Day and The Sweet Spot Festival also look like promising contenders. Finally, Cirque du Soleil's Varekai at the Barclay Center certainly seems worth mentioning. If you need more options, cruise on through the calendar. There's a ton of other activities, and I'm always adding stuff at the last minute. Have a great weekend! And maybe wish me a little luck. :\ Image via NYCGov.
