Did Memorial Day weekend just sneak up on anyone else? I could have sworn that spring just started, and just like that we’re jumping straight into summer. Meaning that everyone I know can expect a lot of me saying “UGH! Why is it soooo hooooooottt” for the next three months.
I am seriously just the worst when it comes to summer. I don’t know why I don’t just pack up and become Canadian or something. I mean, I like hockey. I like John Candy, poutine, AND excessive politeness. When I really think about it, I suppose it’s only my fear of marauding packs of bears that keeps me stateside.
Let’s all compose ourselves and remember that there are absolutely no bears in New York City. None whatsoever.
Now let’s talk about just accepting the inevitable and welcoming in the summer the right way! Tonight we’re hosting Contra Dancing at DeKalb Market, and Sunday we have another epic dance party in the form of The Do-Over sponsored by Adidas (which is FREE with RSVP- so, you know, get on that!). And what sort of sweets will we be releasing on not only our shop by NYC at large to welcome summers arrival? How about the entirety of our Good Humor Series. Nothings says summertime more than that!
