Another week has come and gone. New York experienced a little bit of humidity this week- not a fan of humidity. Also thwarted with some subway issues this week, and trust me, waiting underground in humid weather is not fun. But here’s the run down- Ratings 0-5. I’ve received no compensation for any of these things!
“The Little French Bistro” Nina George The heroine is 59 years old. I don’t think I can say much more than this- it is refreshing to see an adult women in a novel. This is a feel good book about overcoming adversity. While not a great book, it is a fairly easy read. 4
A story about a 40 year old woman getting her life back together after she separates from her husband. (are you sensing a theme? Middle age women overcoming adversity- yes- and I want to see/read more of it) Movie is light and cute, if predictable (again, a theme) 3.8
“Suits”- Season Finale. I didn’t love the finale. My Suits friends, please give me opinions.
New York Historical Society
“The Duchess of Carnegie Hall: Photographs by Editta Sherman” I loved this exhibits. Portraits of celebrities- many from the 40’s and 50’s. Absolutely gorgeous. What was a little dismaying was how many people were photographed smoking, but it was a different time. 4.7
“American Visionary: John F. Kennedy’s Life and Times” Amazing photos of JFK. Beautifully curated exhibit. 4.2
“Eloise at the Museum” Exhibit that explores the beloved book character Eloise. Cute exhibit, but really much better for children. 4
Ofrenda Delicious Mexican food in a lively (loud) cozy (ridiculously small) place. Appetizer called Queso Fondido, which is basically a Mexican fondue. Yummy. Killer, and I mean that literally, Margaritas. 4.3
Island Burger and Shakes- I used to love this place- but the quality of the burgers has gone way down. No worth going to anymore. 2.8
Levain- This bakery has about the best cookies known to man. So big they more closely resemble muffin tops. And I love the chocolate brioche. Ridiculously yummy!
I have narrowed down my WordPress issues. On the app, my reader does not always work correctly. I sometimes miss certain hours of the day, so for example, if someone posts between 11 and 2 pm, I will miss all of the posts- I am not receiving the “Load More Posts” prompt. Let’s see how long it takes to fix it now that I’ve isolated the issue
Thanks again for all the amazing commentary this week- your feedback is amazingly valuable as always!
