First, I would like to say "thank you" to all of the men and women who have served and protected this country for our freedom. May we all remember the true reason for Memorial Day.
While we celebrate Memorial Day with grateful hearts, it is also often known as the "unofficial start of summer" and the official kick off weekend of backyard BBQ-ing.
This year, our Memorial Day consisted of a few different traditions--we spent the weekend in the City
checking off some of our bucket list items!
Take a peak below at our Memorial Day weekend festivities...
Memorial Day weekend means you can officially wear WHITE. So...I took full advantage of the opportunity!
Saturday was arguably the prettiest day in the City this year. We decided to take a hop, skip, and a jump over to the west side of the island and spend the afternoon at The Frying Pan.
The Frying Pan is an old barge that is docked to an old railroad bed; it has been turned into basically a "party barge". Buckets of Corona's are plentiful, sangria can be found on tap, fish tacos & burgers are a staple,
and a good view is guaranteed!
Sunday morning was surprisingly quiet in the City, so I took the opportunity to enjoy some time alone on the roof top.
It was the perfect spot to get a little work done and soak up some vitamin D!
It has always been a lifelong dream of mine to go to a Met's game at Citi field, and Sunday night that dream came true!!
Any Monday that's a paid day off deserves a cocktail! One of my favorite places in the City is "down south," between the start of the financial district and the tail end of Tribeca. It's right on the water with great views of Jersey City, Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty, and, of course, the yachts; who could miss those!?
The St.Tropez is one of my favorite summer time cocktails, and my goal is to figure out how to re-create it at home!
Cheers to an excellent start to the summer!!
Thanks for reading!
