So Ready for the Weekend!

shen wei's "rite of spring"

I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for some downtime this weekend! …though I do have a few things planned. Tonight, my mom and I are catching the last program of City Center’s annual Fall for Dance Festival, which includes Shen Wei’s “Rite of Spring,”В a piece I’ve been wanting to see. (I’ve been making an effort to see more dance, this year—there are always so many great shows and I learn a lot from watching the pros.) And tomorrow I’m going to a dinner party and planning to make this.

What are you up to? Whatever your plans, enjoy!

It’s an NYC Weekend (for Father’s Day)

Father's Day 2011

Father’s Day at CitiField, 2011

No summer share this weekend. I’m here in NYC, hunkered down with a project that’s going to occupy most of my spare hours. But, on the upside, I’m also squeezing in some time with the fam. Mal and Peter are in townВ (yay!) and we’ll be having a celebratory Father’s Day brunch for our stepdad on Sunday. (That’s us, last year, at CitiField.) Happy Father’s Day, E–I love!

And here are some of my favorite links from the week:

India by boat! (I am so jealous of my fellow wanderluster/talented photog friend Tania)

Too cool: Researchers have discovered a lost city in HondurasВ (Speaking of ancient civilizations that have gone missing–I’m also in the middle of The Lost City of Z and highly recommend it!)

How are you spending Father’s Day?
