It’s that season again! Pumpkin-picking, autumn foliage, hot totties – the whole nine yards. In fact, it feels like just yesterday that we kicked off October celebrating our anniversary in the Berkshires, and here we are – about to bid adieu to this month…
… though not without first celebrating Halloween!
Before I had a kid, Halloween was just another opportunity to party and getting jiggy with the action (which, let’s face it, is a pretty sweet deal in itself – see my first Halloween post at Sleep No More). That said, having a little person in your life simply elevates Halloween to a whole new dimension, with a new world of imagination, creativity, and costume fun that I hadn’t even contemplated before.
… my guess is I’m not the first mommy who’s thought this.
We kicked off our official “dress-up” season with a little Superman outfit, and what better way to honor the idea of Superman than at the Intrepid? I've been wanting to go ever since the Summer of 2012 (don’t ask me why), before I was even pregnant, and I must say, it’s infinitely better going back there with my little man (and big man) in tow!
By all means, make sure you go and check out the Flight Deck at the very top of the ship, where you literally get up close-and personal with more than two dozen aircrafts (all of which hubs knew by name, go figure). To see it in person is beyond impressive, and the backdrop of the Manhattan west-side skyline is simply icing on the cake!!!
Hungry? Make sure you head to nearby Gotham West Market (45th and 11th ave) for some first-rate fare! (Think: Ivan Ramen and Blue bottle coffee… more to come on this!).
Aching for some one-of-a-kind retail therapy? Head to DOMUS on 44th and 9th – super cute and great for bespoke items and grifts. My girl Michelle first scoped it out, and they found a set of coaters made out of old vintage records, how cool is that!!
