Get outside and enjoy the beautiful fall weather! And/or listen to some music:

1) New York City Honey Festival, Rockaway Beach Boardwalk, 10a-sunset. God, I love honey. How many free samples can you stomach? Celebrate the first full year of legal bee-keeping in NYC! Feat. a meade making class at 3p. I can't imagine why I find urban bee-keeping so romantic.

Tomorrow from 12-5p RECESS is having a bocce ball tournament, and there's also an art fair this weekend.
