June’s a glorious time in the city because we finally start to experience summer again. Of course, as soon as the hot weather kicks, we’re already sick of the humidity. I’ve only had a small taste of New York summer over the past few weeks, and OH MY GAWD IT’S HUMID. There’s only one way to get through the dog days of summer though: you need to spend as much time near the water in your favorite summer outfit!
When growing up in a Greek family, you will never hear the words “vegetarian” or “vegan” when it comes to daily diets. Aunt Voula says it best for all Greeks in My Big Fat Greek Wedding, “You don’t eat no meat? […] That’s okay, I make lamb!” It’s not saying that every Greek out there is an ignorant carnivore—we just really like our lamb, okay! Based on my Greekness in the last few sentences, you better bet my first visit at a vegan restaurant was going to be quite the experience.
While Central Park was a winter wonderland not too long ago, spring is officially here in NYC! All you need is that first sunny, warm day to go outside, after all. One thing to love about spring in New York is the chance to see all those beautiful flowers bloom. Most importantly, you need to head over to see the spring bloom in Central Park.
When living in the city, it’s hard to keep track of everything going on. We all click on that “Interested” button for a Facebook event, but do we really end up going to the event? Probably not. It’s why I’m introducing another blog series on Lost & Found in the City called “City Happenings” so you can actually see what events are worth checking out. Check out the events picked out for April 2017.
I’m all for trying new food. That’s one of the first things I do when visiting a city because it’s exciting to see new places while eating something delicious. I thought of an idea to share these experiences on the blog in a new series called “City Bites.” I will be covering a restaurant I visited and it will include photos, maybe an occasional vlog, and my personal thoughts on the place. For my first place, it seemed almost appropriate to pick brunch because life without brunch is a life I don’t want.
The Women’s March movement occurred on Saturday to send a bold message to the new presidential administration and the rest of the world that women’s rights are human rights. Seeing the marches around the world in action made me proud as a woman. I saw all over social media of people marching, journalists reporting and friends showing their support of this wonderful movement.
Despite everyone’s political views, you have to agree it was a great day for women. And I always can’t wait to see what’s next on our long road to equality. Witness history in the making with these incredible posters made by the marchers.
The year’s first snowfall always makes everyone love winter so much. We forget about how cold it is. We don’t care that it turns into slush. And we’re not thinking how it’s going to get in the way on our daily commute. As soon as there’s a clean white blanket of snow on the ground, all we can think of is SNOW DAY.
