It’s like a Museum Block Party Tomorrow

Fifth Avenue is shutting down street traffic and turning itself out with street murals, free admission to museums, and live music!  All part of the Museum Mile Festival.  The festival kicks off at 5:45pm at the Guggenheim at 89th Street.

Free Doughnuts! (or is it Donuts? Why can’t we all just get along and agree on one spelling?)

Free Doughnuts tomorrow!  Why?  Where?  How?  National Doughnut Day!  (and people wonder why we’re the fattest nation of fatties-because we have National Holidays devoted to fried dough!  Of course!)  Go get your doughnut on at Krispy Kreme (one free doughnut per customer) or Dunkin Donuts (at participating locations, with purchase of a beverage).  Go with Krispy Kreme…they are such much better.  I still remember watching them being made at the Alexandria location.  There is nothing like a fresh krispy kreme doughnut.  I am so happy there are none close by right now.  I just drooled on my keyboard a little bit…I think there’s a doughnut in my future…maybe at Trois Pommes.  Here’s a list of the best doughnuts by type here in the cit-tay.

Lincoln Center turns 50 and celebrates with FREE events!

Starting Monday, Lincoln Center will start a year long celebration of it’s 50th anniversary with tons of free events for the public.  I was at Alice Tully Hall last week and it’s beautiful.  Sounds like there’s going to be a little bit of everything for everyone.  And these events are FREE.

Free events ring in big 5-0 for Lincoln Center –

It is totes TIME! The Cherry Blossoms are blowing up!

I’ve got my PERFECT unemployed day planned tomorrow!  A friend who is also *in between employment opportunities* and I will be having a fabulous picnic under the peaking cherry trees at Brooklyn Botanic Garden…until I typed that I didn’t realize how slightly sleazy and internet predator that sounded…le sigh.

It’s like the stars are in alignment!  There’s PERFECT weather on tap tomorrow…Tuesdays are FREE at the Botanic Gardens…the Cherry Blossom map shows that almost ALL of the trees are in FULL bloom, and I STILL don’t have a job!  BRILLIANT!  I feel like I’m finally having the unemployed day I always dreamed about when I was stuck in my windowless office on cold and grey days…when the building had turned the water off so we had to walk two blocks to piss…when the whole city just seemed to be closing in on my little self and throwing way too much shade on my shine…
