Friday Links and Giveaway Winner

I know I say this all the time but the days just seem to just fly.  I don’t know if it’s the end-of-the-school year madness or what but I feel like I don’t have a moment to breathe and relax these days. Hopefully, the summer will slow down things quite a bit, allowing for lots of idle days full of simple pleasures — reading, relaxing and lounging by the beach.

We are busy this weekend with Ines’ recital but I thought I’d round up a few links of some of the goings-on in town.   I hope that many of you will get to check out these events.

New Jersey

  • Craft Fair and Massai Market – Held at St. Episcopal Church in Wayne, this fair hopes to raise money for AIDS orphans in Kenya.  
  • Birding by Bicycle at Duke Farms – The bicycle route will cover different habitats that should allow for sightings of different types of birds in the farm.  Participants need to bring their own mountain bikes.
  • Asbury Park Blues and Brews – Lots of entertainment, craft and food for everyone in the family.

New York


  •  Museum Mile on June 10th –  From 6-9PM, the public can visit for free participating Fifth Avenue museums.  
  • Making Lechon (Roast Pig) – Can’t help but include this feature in the NY Times that ran this week.  One of my favorite guilt-laden Filipino dish.
