So my friends and I ate and drank at a ton of places, and went up to Beacon for the day. Think that’s enough? Au contraire.
Brooklyn Botanic Garden
This was my first time here, and it was perfectly lovely, although of course it would have been nicer if more trees and flowers had been in bloom. But the ones that were in bloom were gorgeous:
While we were walking around, I kept forgetting where we were. L.A.? Europe? The garden did a good job of making me feel like I was away.
We had big plans to see this parade, but we got there too late. However, we still got to see a lot of people dressed up, especially in front of St. Patrick’s Cathedral.
The parade inspired to maybe (emphasis on maybe) participate next year. Seems like all I’d need is a dress (check) and a great big hat with some flowers slapped on.
