Choose a word from the dictionary that’s new to you and use it in conversation.
What’s something you should throw away, but can’t? What’s holding you back?

 

“With two kids and a full-time job, I get little time to stop and think and I often have my phone with me beeping and buzzing that new messages or emails have come in. When I get away to an early morning exercise class, it is a forced unplugging time that is mine alone. In the middle of my workout, my mind wanders and I get a chance to think. That often means I’m on the left leg when I should be on the right leg but it is my only time for reflection and it clears my head for the day.” (Tanya Schevitz)

 

Eat. Drink. Art. All things we love–and this just happens to be the name of an event taking place this Saturday at one of our favorite places–Barnsdall Art Park. Tucked atop Olive Hill off a busy stretch of Hollywood Boulevard, Barnsdall is an urban gem if there ever was one. Go early and take a tour of Frank Lloyd Wright’s famed Hollyhock House, or grab a book and a picnic blanket and enjoy the stunning view of the Hollywood Hills.

 

Take your unplugging to the lanes. It’s been awhile since we’ve laced up a pair of goofy shoes, but we’re excited to give it a go. The Mission Bowling Club mashes up old-fashioned fun with a fine dining twist on comfort food….plus classic cocktails. Family Bowling is noon-7 pm Saturdays and Sundays. Strike, spare, gutterball? All are welcome.

 

Have you forgotten, or maybe you never knew? Either way, this is a find we’re really excited about. Forgotten New York is a non-profit dedicated to chronicling the unnoticed and hidden treasures of the city, and hosting curated tours around these discoveries. This weekend is Tour #53: City Island, where you’ll visit an actual fishing village in the Bronx with stops at the City Island Museum and NYC’s only waterside cemetery. The tour finishes up with lunch at Johnny’s World Famous Reef Restaurant.
