After several days hiatus I have returned. If you would like a sneak peek at what kept me so busy this weekend, take a look! A big thanks to Rob Daly for this weekend, so lovely for you to make the trip! The weather here in NYC has continued to tease me. 70+ degrees Fahrenheit some days and not a drop of rain to be seen! I loathe the couple of days with inconsistent heavy rains, however, as much as my mood (& skin) will miss the constant sunshine, I cannot pretend I am not excited for a real AUTUMN weekend. With the Holidays just around the corner, I only have several weekends before the sequence of extended family gatherings begins (aka lots of traveling and not always on my own personal terms!).
Here are a couple of the things on the bucket list for this glorious fall…
Gotta love my WINE: I’ve heard from many of my girlfriends that the vineyard tours on Long Island are a must do! Many come with package deals for wine tastings at several neighboring vineyards: why get all that way for one, the more the merrier! Ironic as it is, I do not really think of the east coast of America when I think of wine. This ‘just outside the city’ adventure seems similar to a vineyard tour I went on last year in the gorgeous landscape of Oregon. Oh, the memories…
Bringing out the CHILD in me: Might I suggest venturing to the pumpkin patch very soon! With the beautiful weekends we have been having, I am sure the patch has been quite the hotspot for families, teens, young couples and really anyone (like me) that get’s all giddy over every little holiday throughout the year! A popular favorite, again out on Long Island, is the long standing Helen’s with a corn maze for the children, hot apple cider and a beautiful country view for a bit of FALL romance, and of course pumpkins for carving and recipes galore. I’m sure there are many in the tri-state area to get your Halloween sweet tooth fulfilled!
It definitely seems that Long Island is not just an escape from the summer humidity, but a great little weekend escape from the city for any season! Although NYC may be what brings people to this area… clearly there are hidden gems to be seen in the surrounding areas. Though, I personally do not want to miss the HARD Haunted NYC affair at Terminal 5! Skream and Benga, original dubstep DJ’s from the UK (a step away and above mainstream dubstep sounds) are performing with Joker this Saturday. I came across this tempting night out on the list of Fall activities (101 to be specific) in the latest TimeOut - be sure to check out number 74 for pumpkin patch fun IN the city. So excited to finally spend a long night dancing until the morning with the floors throbbing under my feet and flashing lights all around me.
What are you doing this weekend?
