So first things first, I started researching vacay spots... I considered the Essence Music Festival but eh, not so much for me this year. It's too late to get decent tickets to the concerts and not for nothing, I really don't want to pay $500 to fly into New Orleans. No offense. So I'm thinking about Barbados or some other small Caribbean island.... anywhere that the sun is hot, the beaches are clean and the water warm will work wonders for the kid.
Next, I got a hold of the NYC City Parks Foundation free concert schedule. Okay seriously, this might be one of the best summers we've had in YEARS. Lisa-Lisa, Slick Rick, Big Daddy Kane, Chrisette Michelle, Naughty by Nature, Joe and a DJ Premier v. Pete Rock battle? And let us not forget the outdoor movie screenings. Can you say, Purple Rain under the hazy NYC summer twillight sky? I'm done!
Cue the 90 degree temps and let the tomfoolery begin!
