Here are a few things you might want to mark on your calendar right now:
1. Metropolitan Museum’s Plaza has been redesigned. You can check it out on your way to see the Dan Graham Roof Garden installation. We’ve also heard that food trucks now line the plaza, so you might also get a tasty snack after your visit.
2. The High Line at the Rail Yards will open to the public on Sunday, September 21, 2014. This third section of the High Line goes from 30th and 10th to 34th and 12th. It’s probably mobbed for the first few days, but a mid-week, off-hours visit should be fine.
3. Sign up for TDF, if you are not yet a member. Check out for new listing every morning; many great shows are now in previews and that’s the best time to get a TDF ticket. We just saw the very entertaining Country House ($41/ticket, including handling charge, ordered online, seats were 3rd row mezzanine, center) and are waiting for On the Town next week ($47.50/ ticket, we’ll find out our seats when we pick up tickets.)
4. Fiddler on the Roof Singalong Show and Tell. Do you get teary eyed when you hear “Sunrise, Sunset…”? We get our chance to sing along and hear Sheldon Harnick, Fiddler’s lyricist reminisce at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center on Tuesday, September 30, 2014 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM. For more information and free tickets go to the NYPL website.
5. Sign up to volunteer at the Food Network New York City Wine & Food Festival, October 16-19. This event benefits Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry® campaign and Food Bank For New York City. Make new friends and get a look behind the scenes at this big food and wine gathering.
