I always love it when I get that feeling and know I’m on the right track. This week I received some newspaper clippings from The Washington Post that my mom sent me. The “Sunday Source” is a great section of the paper and every week features a totally do-able road trip from DC. Only appropriate that the road trip she sent me was called “Get to Know Baltimore’s Artsy Side.” All of the Post’s “Road Trips” are archived on their site in easy to download printable form, and there’s something for everyone. Very timely given my recent road trip post. Thanks mom!
After yesterday’s post, I was equally pleased when I checked the New York Times today to find their article “Midsummers Night’s Screen” all about New York’s outdoor movie watching opportunities, or what they call a “cheap date.” I found a few links from the shout-outs in the article. Makes me want to take a trip up to New York.
- Queen’s Museum of Art “Passport Fridays“- movies, dance and music with an international spin
- Socrates Sculpture Park in Queens’ Outdoor Cinema– international film and arts with a different featured country each screening (food too)
- McCarren Park Pool’s Summer Screen– a former swimming pool turned movie “theater” with hipster favorites
- Rooftop Films– underground films playing at locations around Brooklyn including the roof of the old American Can Factory
[I’m working on making my links open to a new screen…thank you for your patience.]
